This is the warmest time of year in most of the U.S. And if we continue to pump heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, it’s going to
get even warmer — not only in the summer, but throughout the year.
“How warm?” is the obvious question. So we’ve taken a look at how the number of extremely hot days are projected to increase in a variety of
cities by 2050 and 2100 if emissions continue to grow unabated.
I don’t really know if green house gasses are causing global warming but something is.
In fact I’m glad…I hate cold weather and winter. Now however in the mile high Rockies the temp. is 100 degrees and my pickup overheated and left
me stranded on the interstate until I called triple A and they came and cooled me down. They said they have been busy all morning long with stranded
cars due to overheating. So there is a downside.
Another downside might be the effect extreme heat has on agriculture, the ocean currents, the jet stream and extended droughts like California is
experiencing right now.
