"It’s incredibly, record-breakingly, worryingly hot in multiple states right now. A heat wave sweeping over the U.S. this week is felling temperature records left and right. Grid operators are begging with customers to conserve energy to avoid blackouts and wildfires are spreading. The whole ordeal foretells our sweaty, scary future.
It’s actually kind of difficult to grasp how serious and how widespread this heat wave is. For a little context: Doctors in Arizona and Nevada warned this week that people could get burned on hot asphalt, sand, and sidewalks as temperatures soared. Temperatures in Death Valley reached 125 degrees Fahrenheit (51.7 degrees Celsius) this week and temperatures are expected to be even hotter on Thursday, just a few degrees off the all-time hottest temperature on Earth set at the same site last year. The extreme heat and warnings didn’t keep people from showing up to visit the park to get a taste of the heat (or maybe to get used to what our new climate dystopia feels like)."
