Noted. Thanks, Freya. We may all have to go underground to escape the heat eventually.

Well on the positive side--we do need population control. Just pray the heat doesn't scorch our precious animals. The rising heat will be norm unfortunately. thx Freya

Some of our recent weather has been extremely uncomfortable, and it's NOTHING like the kind of weather that's engulfed parts of America, and India. . . . way too much.

We are supposed to be well into Winter, yet the day temperatures are balmy at 19C (65F)!
Definitely odd!!!

I had posted an article about Turbat, Pakistan not too long ago. It isn't just people and animals we have to be concerned with it is also plant life. What can grow now might not be able to tolerate that heat so it could cause a major food shifting that might cause hunger or prices of food to increase.

Maybe, if a serious heat wave hit D.C., it would overcome the legislative whoring after the fossil fuel money that is keeping so many legislators acting stupidly.
