    Climate Reanalyzer service hosted by the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute reported world temperature records were broken a 2nd day in a row on the 4th of July causing 12 heat related deaths in Texas and Louisiana, and 112 deaths in Mexico, 3X higher than 2022, especially where there are less resources for people to keep cool.

    Emergency room visits increased by 1/3rd compared to 2022, and SPCA has received hundreds of pet related heat reports.

    "For the week of June 18 to June 24, the region averaged 837 heat-related visits per 100,000 emergency department visits compared to 639 visits per 100,000 emergency department visits during the same period in 2022, CDC data shows."

    "On average, 702 heat-related deaths occur each year in the U.S., with roughly 9,235 people hospitalized due to heat, and 67,512 emergency department visits caused by heat, according to the CDC."

    "Between June 1 and June 20, the Houston SPCA received 243 heat-related reports, compared to the same time frame in 2022, the organization revealed."

    CAUSES ASKS: "How do you feel about these record-breaking temperatures?"  ME: Unsurprised that it happened (been following climate change science since the 1980s), but still a little surprised it hasn't happened sooner.

    These heat waves are just Mother Nature doing her very natural thing. (1) Climate is driven by the Sun heating the Earth in accordance with the Milankovich cycles. These cycles are about 100,000 years long. These cycles drive ice ages of 90,000 to 125,000 years long followed by interglacial periods of 10,000 to 15,000 years long. We are currently about 12,000 years into the current interglacial period. (2) CO2 cannot physically warm the air more than 1.5C (thermodynamic analysis) which has already been realized. (3) For additional information regarding weather and climate, get the free application, "Inconvenient Facts", at the Apple App Store or Google Play. The app gives you 60 facts and sources that totally debunks "climate change" as an existential threat to humanity. That threat lies solely with political parties who care more about their power (imagined or real) than the fate of their represented population.

    I love this warm weather.  We basically haven't had a decent summer this year cause it's been a bit chilly and with the fires in Canada, we haven't seen much sunlight.  Thisnis the first week that I believe it's been above 80F.

    I'm lucky enough that I don't live in one of these areas, but still very concerned. We need to take climate change seriously and act now to stop it and take preventive actions to stop heat like this from killing people and damaging the economy.

    Like one of the environmentalist stated the other day. We could stop every fossil fuel vehicle in the world today. And it would not help cool down the atmosphere. That will take years and years. All the features of convenience we have today contributes to the CO2 foot print. Just how many folks are willingly to give up those conveniences. Not!

    The responsiblity in this country for the climate disasters we are living through lies with Republicans and big business who refuse to face up to their  responsibilities to LEAD.

    You guys need to have solar and green energy in AL to tackle climate change, we need high speed rail in Birmingham where I live, multiple EV's fast charging stations since I'm planning on getting a EV when my Honda Civic hybrid doesn't drive anymore by next year or the year after that and also we need more public transit and Intercity high speed rail for our state like Florida with Brightline please contact Brightline and Amtrak to bring high speed rail to our state

    Not good re. these extreme temps and weather patterns.  We all (globally) need to get very serious about curving climate change.  So, the time for action is NOW (actually several years ago), not just talk.

    This is going to be the hottest year on record, and yet one party continues to bicker amongst themselves and engage in conspiracy theories instead of acting while the world literally burns.

    Wake up, Republicans! We need climate action and we need it now. We are not prepared for the ravages of the climate crisis, and the FEMA money isn't going to be enough if we don't start doing more to prevent these disasters.

    Humans are so egotistical to think we have so much control that we can change the weather. Really? God created it. We are responsible to take care of it, but climate has changed throughout history. Long before humans started keeping records of it. Yes, we should do everything we can to not destroy what we've been given. The United States does this better than any other nation, period. Don't tell me to drive a battery powered car to make you feel better. Where do you think the tires come from? How about the interior or the belts? Don't be naive. This just shows the level of ignorance the left has. And BTW, how do you plan to dispose of the lithium when the batteries wear out, just saying....

    The last 2 weeks have been the hottest 14-day stretch ever recorded in Las Vegas.   Average high: 112.3° Average low: 89.1°


    The struggle is real for every living thing.  

    What's the plan????

    Our government needs to do something to prevent more climate change.   All the money in the world is worthless if there is no planet to spend it on.

    Are there seriously people on this board who feel nothing for the millions of the people affected by the heat? Do you also feel nothing for people that are affected by hurricane, floods, earthquakes, and fire? Because if you do, then, you don't care about Americans, which means you don't care about your country because that's what makes up your country. Just because you make nasty comments online doesn't make me believe that you truly are so callous towards fellow human beings. I don't want to believe you are that broken. And if you are, please seek help not so much for others, but for your own well-being.

    Because of corporate greed and the stupidity and lack of respect for the earth of the public in denying global warming we're now is this mess and it's probably only going to get a lot worse which will cause needless deaths, food shortages, population displacement, etc.  But we brought this crap on ourselves so now we will pay the price.Drastic action worldwide is needed to try and avoid a total disaster.  I only hope that enough people have woken up to that fact and will do what's needed-NOW!!!!!
