I can confirm that it's been an especially hot summer here in Japan too. Records have been broken.

I've got a friend in Portugal who tells me the temperature there well up into the high 40s

It doesn't get quite so hot here, but it's more humid, so the combination of heat and humidity is quite miserable.

In Japan, Weather Killed More Than 300 in July
  • Historic rainfall killed an estimated 220 people, followed by a heat wave that killed 116.
  • More than 13,000 remain hospitalized with heat-related illnesses.
  • August will bring more rain and heat.
Stay cool, Anax!

Here an approaching thunderstorm gave me some hope of rain, but it petered out:

Paint the entire fucking planet white. That way, it'll reflect more of the naughty energy back into space.

Yea, right.

It is scientifically proven that more money to the UN will solve the problem. :)

But who can we get the money from?

Maybe, maybe not. One thing is sure: Give me a couple a million bucks and by Gawd I won't give a shit about climate change anymore!

Yes, I'm a selfish bastard. I've only got 20 years to go, send me the gawddamned money and never hear my brand of bullshit again! Do it now for Jeebus!!

In April, OK?

BTW, local temperature went down from 39 to 22 (Celsius of course, not some awkward scale defined by dirty brine and human bodies).

And it rained. Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh! Breathing again! :)

Hey ed!

"Fahrenheit" sounds awfully German to me.

If it were 100% American it would be "Drivinghood" or something like that. :P

Aw, Abdul! Hundreds of etymologists just spun in their graves. :(

(Er)fahrenheit = experience. Ein erfahrener Kerl = a seasoned dude.

But what astonishes me is how ed clings to his colonizer's legacy. Is that Stockholm syndrome? :twisted:
