Following on the heels of what will likely be the hottest summer in Washington D.C. recorded history, the heat is on again in the American Southwest. Los Angeles recorded an all-time high temperature record of 113F, beating the old record of 122F. On September 27th.
These kinds of protracted and all-time high temperature events will become more common in the future. We’ve guaranteed it by refusing to take responsibility for our greenhouse pollution leading to global warming. When people truly get tired of these events, then we’ll change our habits. Of course, decades and centuries of additional global warming will still occur. We decide how bad it gets.
