Message Subject Northeast's turn to Roast this Weekend
Poster Handle Humanitarianlike
Post Content
"A heat wave gripping parts of the nation added an exclamation point to a series of announcements this week about the world’s warming climate.

A city water park in Grand Island, Nebraska, doesn’t open for another two weeks, but residents could have used it Thursday when the temperature reached 96, 21 degrees above normal for that date.

In Shreveport, Louisiana, on Thursday, the high of 94 tied a 148-year-old record. That was one of more than 110 temperature records broken or tied across 21 states this week. In Texas, Galveston sweltered, setting or tying records three out of four days.

And it’s not just the U.S.

High-temperature records were set this week in Spain and France. Heat waves continued in parts of Pakistan and India, where temperatures as high as 113 to 120 degrees were reported."
