“Don’t Look Up” in Real Life

July 20, 2022

I’m going to try to find the original source for this.

For now, a synopsis.

Washington Post:

The maximum temperature reached Tuesday in Coningsby, England — 130 miles north of London — was unlike anything the village had ever observed. It was an outlier in the truest sense: about 9 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius) above the previous highest temperature.

That high temperature, 104.5 degrees (40.3 Celsius), shattered the national temperature record for Britain by a lofty 2.9 degrees (1.6 Celsius).

Ordinarily, when temperature records are broken during heat waves, they do so in a few places and by fractional degrees. But on Tuesday, records in the United Kingdom toppled over a vast area and by enormous margins.

The magnitude and extent of Tuesday’s temperatures underscored the exceptional nature of this extreme event — which scientists say would have been impossible without a boost from human-caused climate change.

    Such temperatures may be normal in places like Kuwait, but the U.K is not geared up to it at all, and is a lot more flammable. Still there are the mad-heads trying to convince the populace everything is normal (they are certainly not firefighters).
