March Madness

I'd encourage you to read Joe Romm's post titled - March Madness: 

He talks in detail about the unprecedented heat wave we've just experienced in March. Stunning really. 

Climate Change is here - now. Many of us thought this was a fight to protect the environment for our children and our grandchildren - but it is now clear - we are fighting for our own lives. 

The Boston Globe ran an article about a Harvard study that showed that summer heat waves due to climate change are killing an additional 10,000 people a year in the US.  Link to the report here

They report states that elderly people have a 42% higher chance of dying from heat for each 1 degree C increase in temperature variability.
