I read a lot of blogs that cover the environment, so it’s no surprise that I find heat wave stuff there. But today even the BBC, science fiction authors, and Stanford chemistry students are talking about the heat.

One response to “record heat globally

  1. That’s your role, my role.

    Yes, our role – that’s your role, my role – everybody who uses energy that’s produced from non-renewal sources – is responsible for this change. This isn’t something that’s being done to us, it’s something we’re doing to our planet. So it’s within ourselves to change. Either we change before it gets dangerous – whatever that is – or we leave it until it becomes dangerous, it becomes a very deeply damaging event. But we will stop using carbon-based energy economy – guaranteed that there aren’t the hydrocarbons to keep us going for very long.
