    I still prefer heat to cold...two years in Calgary satisfied my lifetime quota of cold... but I do walk in the shade every chance I get on my evening walk/jogs these days..
    I lived in Cairo, Egypt when I was young, and would play in 105+ frequently. No A/C, just fans. Very dry luckily. I remember 114+ some days.

    OTOH, I spent some time in Inuvik, NWT, bundled up in freezing (to me) temps, huddled on the front porch of McKenzie Grand Hotel (re-furbished WWII army barracks ) watching bare headed, sweater and windbreaker clad kids play baseball on a rudimentary baseball field on a vacant lot... curiously, they played the game clockwise.. never did get an explanation.

    2,000 years

    A new report has revealed that the temperature variations that occurred during the end of the 20th century were more widespread than any climatic variations experienced during the previous 2,000 years. The report, published in the journal Nature, found that previous weather phenomena had been confined to specific areas and were not global challenges, said Nathan Steiger, one of the report’s authors. According to Steiger, “climate variability in the contemporary period is very different than what’s happened in the past 2,000 years.”

    Meanwhile....

    This is a roaring glacial melt, under the bridge to Kangerlussiauq, Greenland where it's 22C today and Danish officials say 12 billions tons of ice melted in 24 hours, yesterday.

    And, as the land begins to emerge, it soaks up the solar radiation, instead of reflecting it, and there's MORE global warming.

    From the Washington Post:

    >> On Monday, data from a European climate agency made official [that]. . . July was the warmest month the world has experienced since record-keeping began more than a century ago.<<

    I'd like to take a look at the sensor numbers and locations in the urban areas, there may be biases built in when comparing across the decades.

    OK, sorry, I just read it, ..hmm a 0.2 F change in a max temperature over a 15 year period may or may not mean anything at all. But if you are feeling it, it is sweltering !

    My Seattle daughter was in OKC over the weekend, complaining about the mid-90s temps. O course, she had just returned from Barrow, Ak where the locals were sweltering in low 70s temps.
    A helicopter not being available due to weather, she hired a boat to take her to Cooper Island in the Beaufort Sea 25 miles off Barrow. She was bundled up and freezing during the crossing while the boatmen were in sweatshirt or windbreaker.
