It’s hot. Not only is it hot here, it’s hot everywhere including normally cool places like London and many European countries. Looking at a weather map, it looked like the world is boiling over. Probably a reasonably accurate description of what’s going on.
The world is cooking. Republicans aren’t alarmed. Apparently as long as corporate profits are high, the ultimate death of humanity is no big deal. It doesn’t make any sense no matter how you look at it. What good are corporate profits if people are gone? Okay, we aren’t going to disappear between today and tomorrow, but the future isn’t looking good for living people on planet Earth.
Why aren’t they alarmed? How can anyone not be alarmed?
Today England had its hottest day ever. More than 20 locations within the U.K. hit record breaking temperatures and that’s just today. The European continent isn’t far behind.
In the U.S., we are cooking from coast to coast under a dry dome of heat. It blocks the rain which makes the heat worse. It will keep getting worse. Temps are well over 100 in many places. Not quite that hot here, but it will be before the week is out.
We’re lucky this house is mostly shaded by trees. Between the heat and the drought, complaining seems redundant.
I am completely at a loss as to how the supposed “leaders” of nations and the parties that rule nations can ignore that climate change isn’t on its way. It’s HERE. Now. It’s not just a danger to future generations. It has arrived.
Are we going to allow the Republican Party murder us in the name of protecting corporate profits? Are we that hopeless, helpless, and stupid?
