If you’re like me, you’ve been transfixed by the news of the unrelenting heat wave hitting Canada, with record temperatures killing hundreds from heat related issues, as well as setting off fires that are destroying whole towns.
And we all know this heat wave is extending well beyond Canada. The US is experiencing intense heat, but so is Europe, Russia, and the Arctic is burning up too – which is of huge concern, because it is here we release the methane dragon – a gas 86 times more potent than carbon. We are inching ever closer to this reality, and the impact of this, well it’s too frightening to know. Let’s just say we can expect uncontrollable climate change, and it will happen fast, not slow.
Some heat news
But then we have some deeper commentary
Or even this one Canadian inferno: northern heat exceeds worst-case climate models.
Are we getting the message yet?
