Rogue, the way I see it is if you are in your room and the temperature rise, you would open a window or a door to let fresh air pass through. The problem on our planet is they have closed all the doors and windows and cannot open them because they are afraid of what would come in that is far mere dangerous than cool air. Earth is changing no doubt, however, it does all of its changes similar to how it does it with our bodies, very slowly. We the living species on the planet is having a hard time cooping with the speed of change. We are mostly unwilling to accept the part we contribute to the speed of change.

Pakistan has really been copping the heat, Along with the ongoing power cuts many people just not able to survive. Would be extremely difficult for the elderly. I hate to think our warming climate has this in store for our countries in the years to come.

Heatwave in the UK a the moment, but ours really aren't worth reporting on. Might be HOT for us Brits, but would be either normal or below average summer temps for a lot of places!! Lol you know us Brits, we always moan about the weather!

Record-Breaking Heat Wave Scorches Europe (PHOTOS)
The Huffington Post  |  By Lydia O'Connor
Posted: 07/02/2015

A dangerous heat wave scorching Europe this week is breaking records and forcing people to seek shade and water, as well as refuge indoors.

Triple-digit temperatures baked Spain and Portugal earlier this week before moving on to France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland and other areas of Europe, AccuWeather reported.

Madrid set a new record for its June heat on Monday when temperatures reached 103.5 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the Weather Channel, and southern Spain's Cordoba experienced 110.7 degrees on Sunday. A heat of 98.1 degrees at London's Heathrow Airport on Wednesday set a new record for July heat in all of the U.K., while the 103.5 degrees recorded in Paris that same day was the hottest reading in the city since 1873.

While history's deadliest heat wave -- centered in France in 2003 -- killed 70,000 people across Europe, Slate notes that such fatalities are unlikely to happen now thanks to an increase in preparedness and warning systems, including daily phone calls to the most vulnerable people.

Research suggests such extreme heat waves, including the one in India that killed more than 1,400 people last month, are largely the result of human-caused climate change. A study published last year in the journal Nature Climate Change found that Europe is now 10 times more likely to see another heat wave as intense as that of 2003 than it was one decade ago.

There is a natural mystic blowing in the wind, if you look carefully then you will know.
There was a song made by a group called Third World in the sixties, the title, "96 degrees in the shade" that's real hot in the shade.
Global warming will be the real destroyer, in terms of economics.

Iran city hits suffocating heat index of 165 degrees, near world record

By Jason Samenow July 31 at 10:29 AM

Wherever you live or happen to travel to, never complain about the heat and humidity again.

In the city of Bandar Mahshahr (population of about 110,000 as of 2010), the air felt like a searing 165 degrees (74 Celsius) today factoring in the humidity.

[Iran’s heat index is literally off the charts, and this is what it feels like]

Although there are no official records of heat indices, this is second highest level we have ever seen reported.

To achieve today’s astronomical heat index level of 165, Bandar Mahshahr’s actual air temperature registered 115 degrees (46 Celsius) with an astonishing dew point temperature of 90 (32 Celsius).

This 165 reading, recorded at 4:30 p.m. local time Friday, comes one day after the heat index soared to 159 degrees (70 Celsius) in the same location.

Can you imagine? This global warming is no more a joke. I have to agree with you, "poof" I would be toast.

Heat, drought cook fish alive in Pacific Northwest
Doyle Rice, USA July 31, 2015

Freakishly hot, dry weather in the Pacific Northwest is killing millions of fish in the overheated waters of the region's rivers and streams.

“We’ve lost about 1.5 million juvenile fish this year due to drought conditions at our hatcheries,” Ron Warren of Washington State's Department of Fish and Wildlife said in a statement. “This is unlike anything we’ve seen for some time."

My goodness Rogue, that is awful, you know this global warming is aiming at our food reserves. I know the price of food is going to sky rocket, aside from so much living things are dying out.

I have just been reading up on the cause of the deaths of the salmon.The real cause seems to be the radio active water flowing into the sea. The thing is people are eating the fish believing the warm water is killing them. So much trouble in the world.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/july-2015-was-the-hottest-month-on-modern-record-1.3197748

Earth just keeps getting hotter. July was the planet's warmest month on record, smashing old marks, U.S. weather officials said.

And it's almost a dead certain lock that this year will beat last year as the warmest year on record, they said.

July's average temperature was 16.6 Celsius (61.86 degrees Fahrenheit), beating the previous global mark set in 1998 and 2010 by 0.08 C, according to figures released Thursday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That's a large margin for weather records, with previous monthly heat records broken by a 20th of a degree or less.

"It just reaffirms what we already know: that the Earth is warming," said NOAA climate scientist Jake Crouch. "The warming is accelerating and we're really seeing it this year."

NOAA records go back to 1880. Separate calculations by NASA and the Japanese weather agency also found July 2015 to be a record.

The first seven months of 2015 were the hottest January-to-July span on record, according to NOAA. The seven-month average temperature of 14.7 Celsius ( 58.43 F) is 0.85 degrees warmer than the 20th-century average and 0.09 degrees warmer than the old record set in 2010.

Given that the temperatures have already been so high already — especially the oceans, which are slow to cool — NOAA climate scientist Jessica Blunden said she is "99 per cent certain" that 2015 will be the hottest on record for the globe. The oceans would have to cool dramatically to prevent it, and they are trending warmer, not cooler, she said.

Crouch, Blunden and other scientists outside of the government said these temperatures are caused by a combination of man-made climate change and a strong, near-record El Nino. An El Nino is a warming of the equatorial Pacific Ocean that alters weather worldwide for about a year.

The oceans drove the globe to record levels. Not only were the world's oceans the warmest they've been in July, but they were 0.75 degrees warmer than the 20th-century average.

European heat wave

The heat hit hard in much of Europe and the Middle East. It was the hottest July on record in Austria, where records go back to 1767. Parts of France had temperatures that were on average 4 degrees above normal and temperatures hit 38.2 C in the Netherlands, which is a rarity. And an Iranian city had a heat index (the "feels like" temperature) of  74 Celsius (165 F), which was still not quite record.

Nine of the 10 hottest months on record have happened since 2005, according to NOAA. Twenty-two of the 25 hottest months on record have occurred after the year 2000. The other three were in 1998 and 1997.

This shows that despite what climate change doubters say, there is no pause in warming since 1998, Blunden said.

It doesn't matter if a month or a year is No. 1 or No. 2 or No. 5 hottest on record, said University of Georgia climate scientist Marshall Shepherd.

"The records are getting attention but I worry the public will grow weary of reports of new records each month," Shepherd said in an email. "I am more concerned about how the Earth is starting to respond to the changes and the implications for my children."

The question is Kaere, are they going to stop talking about it and finally do something about it?
