An NBC meteorologist said Friday the record heat wave sweeping part of the country is the result of global warming.

Doug Kammerer, chief meteorologist for WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., gave his explanation of the extreme temperatures during a news weather update.

"I was on the radio today talking with some of the folks from WMZQ and they said, 'Doug is this global warming and what's going on?' If we did not have global warming, we wouldn't see this," Kammerer said. "I really believe that, I really think that this is because -- maybe we would have seen 101, maybe we would have seen 102, but not 104."

He continued, "We have set all-time records all across the entire portion of the country. St. Louis hit 108 yesterday, Nashville, Tennessee hit 109 degrees during the day today. That is extreme heat and these are all-time records that have come up here."
