Indeed. This daily heat is unprecedented.
Even early morning commutes are unbearable.

Agreed- all day in grass lands used to be bearable with a nearby guava tree

Planet heating up is no joke
As much as it’s fashionable for politicians to play up their macho ignorance and anti-science sad

My advice would be retreat to the shade. There temps will definitely be under 100 degrees. Hope this helps.

In Britain, the UHI effect, the ubiquity of double glazing and improved building insulation standards explain far more of the perceived rise in urban temperatures during summer than any minor fluctuation in global temperatures.

Was at Cable beach in the Bahamas a couple weeks ago.
Warmest ocean water I’ve ever been in, like a heated pool.
Actually scary.

Greetings gents, ladies and LGBTQI folks hope all are well. I agree the planet is overheating I was in Guyana last month and it was brutal, never experienced such before, the locals agreed.

Its the hottest recorded Year Globally since records keeping began .
I was roasted all summer in Philly and today's 82 feel like Winter
as humidity is in 60s.

Never experienced anything like this.
Its been brutal but the AC kept cranking and worth every penny.

It was the hottest in Southern Ontario this year.
We had about 10 days of over 40 deg C ..on the Niagara Escarpment over 100m high.
Winds come off Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, some black cherry leaves were curling and dropping during such days.
I prefer Fall and Winter..I cant dress for summer impossible.

Fall is my favourite season. Hope it is typical this year as my lawn is still asleep
and burned in many places because of the heat. Had high 90s for seven days at start of this

Adjustments got to be made as this climate change thing is very real although many still
don't believe any such thing exist. The evidence convinces me and it is most likely to get
worse each succeeding year.

Hot Hat Hatter

Please keep out the sun as much as you can and when in sun wear a hat, use an umbrella
