"nearly 30 states were under a heat watch

Over the next few days, more than 85 percent of the lower 48's population will see temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, Hennen said, and more than half will see temperatures in excess of 95 degrees.

On Thursday, cities under excessive heat warnings included Chicago, Oklahoma City, Omaha, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Detroit and Philadelphia.
Minneapolis, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville and Raleigh were all under heat advisories.
Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Washington, Baltimore, New York and Boston were all under excessive heat watches and expected to see high temperatures this weekend."

It's not expected that night time will offer any real relief from the heat

Yeah I'm suffering from the heat yesterday and today is supposed to be worse and tomorrow worse than today. Good news is most of todays work should be in AC and same for tomorrow.

Heat and MS are not friends

Really though for NC not that unusual we will have one or two brutal weeks like this every summer.

#3 I was in Houston before moving to the Midwest.

They really don't know humidity.

But it's still unpleasant, especially since nightly lows are staying in the 80s here.

Supposed to be 100 degrees here in NYC tomorrow and feel like it's 107. That means that the subway platforms are going to feel even worse than that. It's going to suck getting anywhere tomorrow.

It's in the low 90's here but with really high humidity.

Tomorrow is supposed to be in the high 90's. Yuck!

Glad I mowed the lawn last night.

Please people...

check your cars when you park for kids inside. Temperatures can reach as high as 170 degs in a closed car.

If your walking in parking lot... look inside cars your passing for kids or pets trapped inside.

At 70 degrees on a sunny day, after a half hour, the temperature inside a car is 104 degrees. After an hour, it can reach 113 degrees." "When temperatures outside range from 80 degrees to 100 degrees, the temperature inside a car parked in direct sunlight can quickly climb to between 130 to 172."

After 1 hour, stick a fork to make sure it's been thoroughly cooked. Skin should be a light golden brown with slightly pink insides. Turn the car 180 deg to make sure it's been cooked evenly.

now that's funny...

40 kids dying in cars every summer...

isn't.

Even a democrat clown car can be a death trap if a child or pet is locked inside this summer.

For just this once.... be pro-life...

But Global Climate Change isn't our biggest threat to our world. Keep telling yourself that if you need to believe it to be happy. It won't do you any good though. Our kids and grandkids are going to be living in hell unless we figure out how to deal with it now. Planting one trillion trees is the best suggestion I've heard, let's get started. There is no time to waste. We need to do this now.

Global Climate Change is going to be the end to Nationalism because climate doesn't respect national boundaries. We need to have information about Climate Change available to every person on Earth. It should be broadcasted from satellites in ways that governments can't prevent. Instead of preparing for unnecessary wars we should be focusing on informing the rest of the world.

This is what the Democrats should be talking about right now. Sorry, she was a bartender a short time ago but she is the leader on climate change. And you know who I am talking about. The fact that you do indicates that, yes, she is the leader on climate change.

"Oil up your snow shovel."

Deniers beware, winters may be arctic cold and it is still due to climate change. Deny all you want, you will be relegated to the scrap heap of history. We've seen your kind before, they have always been wrong. Scientists don't lie to us for ----- and giggles. They are warning us about what is coming. If they are wrong then science is wrong. If it is then how do you explain our space program, nuclear weapons, lasers, modern medicine, etc? Your party doesn't want to believe so you just go along like an idiot? Wake the hell up! Your kids will be doomed if people like you don't. Do you care about your kids?

"Summer weather is hot. God wants it this way."

Yes summer is hot but it has never been as hot for so long in my lifetime, we have never had so many forest fires. You're pretending this is normal, it's not normal.

I can see sea level rise down the street from my condo. I watch it all the time, I've lived here abour 15 years, it has definitely risen quite a bit in just the time I have lived here.

If you really want to help, turn the AC off, sell your car and ride a bike.

--Yes summer is hot but it has never been as hot for so long in my lifetime

"As it happens, chapter six of 2017's Fourth National Climate Assessment reports that heat waves measured as high daily temperatures are becoming less common in the contiguous U.S., not more frequent.

Here, from the report, are the "observed changes in the coldest and warmest daily temperatures (°F) of the year for each National Climate Assessment region in the contiguous United States."

A great American. Thanks, Willis!

Celebrating 117 years of air conditioning thanks to Willis Carrier and his 1902 invention

In July of 1902, Willis Carrier designed a machine to help a printing plant operate more efficiently. A happy outcome from that invention, we can keep cool in the summer.

Carrier

Remember when Trump promised he wasn't going to allow Carrier to move its factories to Mexico?

Now each unit reads: Hecho en Mexico.

"Experts say the heat wave is only made worse by the ongoing threat of climate change. According to last year's National Climate Assessment, the number of hot days in the US is increasing.

Heat waves have also increased in frequency, rising from an average of two per year to six per year in the last five decades. The threat is especially pronounced in the Northeast, where "the frequency, intensity, and duration of heatwaves is expected to increase" due to climate change."

Yes, too many stupid people throwing out stupid bon mots like "Summer is hot".

Yes, idiot, we all know Summer is supposed to be hot.

Do you even understand what a heat wave is, how many we've traditionally had in the past and how many we have now ?

Since we're all idiots and you have all the answers, please tell me how Fourier, Tyndall and Arrhenius were wrong. I keep asking the question of you supposedly better informed "scientists" but never seem to get an answer.

Climate change is a hoax!

97% of the world's scientists are wrong!

Politicians on the oil industry's payroll are right!

All this abnormal weather the world is experiencing is normal.

Please keep using fossil fuels and ignoring energy alternatives.

Wind turbines give you cancer! Trump said it, so it must be true!

I would take anything you find on that blog with a gigantic grain of salt. "Stephen Goddard", actually named Tony Heller, has been found to have manipulated his own data and graphs to support his position multiple times in the past. His "data analysis" techniques are downright fraudulent. For example, he posted these two graphs on separate topics of the same data set:
No scatter

High scatter

The fact that these supposed graphs of the same data are so different proves he is manipulating the graphs to meet the point he is trying to make instead of honestly presenting the data. I haven'e looked at his supposed sea level data, but I wouldn't trust anything coming from such an individual.

The man believed it snows CO2 in Antarctica just because it falls below the freezing point of CO2 on occasion there. If you don't understand why that's a poor understanding of how that process works, you might want to do a lot of learning before you try to pass judgment on what is or isn't good science.
