That is terrible, I recall last year that Australia had to add an additional heat index to it's charts. It might become an area that can not hold human life in time. Just like islands of people are loosing ground and looking for a Country to take in it's people.

Unless the world's leaders get serious here, I'm afraid there is going to be a lot of environmental problems in one form or another. It can't be up to the people to just simply ride a bicycle or carry their own sacks, all that does help, but major changes must come from the top and thus far our leaders cater to the fossil fuel giants.
