I'm suprised they cancelled OZY fest too

I think that was going to be a pretty good event

I think A-Rod was on to something with this.

I've just been reading about the great heat waves of 1911 and 1936

Check out how they had to keep cool in 1911 The 1911 Heat Wave Was So Deadly It Drove People Insane - New England Historical Society


Also, many people slept outside because it was simply too hot inside. "
Parks and beaches were opened for sleeping. In tenement slums, the sidewalks were lined with blankets and mattresses. Sleeping outside had its dangers, as thieves commonly stole hats, coats and wallets."

Also there was a great heat wave of 1936 where the temps in NY reached 106. A lot of people died. We are lucky to have access to A/C!

I remember my grandmother telling stories of sleeping on the fire escape in Brooklyn before a/c.

This morning at 4AM I checked the temperature outside my window: it was 88F.
It is good that I am teetotalling this month and don't have to make a trip to Mr. Wright for cheap but delicious red wine.

I mentioned two heat waves in an entire century. Of course there were always heat waves. The fact is they have become more frequent. There are a bunch of articles in science magazines if you'd like to educate yourself on the matter.

More Intense, More Frequent, and Longer Lasting Heat Waves in the 21st Century

well yeah, and it's only going to get worse. We need to kickstart all these geoengineering projects ASAP, like seeding the atmosphere with reflective particles and deploying solar filters in low earth orbit - things we can do right now to at least save the ice caps
