Think It’s Hot Now? Just Wait

By HEIDI CULLEN AUG. 20, 2016

July wasn’t just hot — it was the hottest month ever recorded, according to NASA. And this year is likely to be the hottest year on record.

Fourteen of the 15 hottest years have occurred since 2000, as heat waves have become more frequent, more intense and longer lasting. A study in the journal Nature Climate Change last year found that three of every four daily heat extremes can be tied to global warming.

This map provides a glimpse of our future if nothing is done to slow climate change. By the end of the century, the number of 100-degree days will skyrocket, making working or playing outdoors unbearable, and sometimes deadly. The effects on our health, air quality, food and water supplies will get only worse if we don’t drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions right away.

Are you suffering from "Vacation Envy?"

Most U.S. Citizens, vacationing in foreign nations aren’t having as much fun as they planned, thanks to one man — Donald Trump.

Americans vacationing overseas find themselves on a Donald Trump apology tour
Yep, this summer, an overseas vacation has become a relentless apology tour, and just about every American with a passport is being interrogated by the rest of the world about our bizarre Republican presidential candidate.

“Two weeks abroad and I lost count of how many baffled Europeans asked us to explain Donald Trump,” tweeted Sherry Stern, a California magazine editor who found herself Trumpsplaining in London; Cambridge, England; and Budapest.

Add another thing to the list of things Trump has stained.

The ‘Trump Effect’ is contaminating our kids — and could resonate for years https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/americans-vacationing-overseas-find-themselves-on-a-donald-trump-apology-tour/2016/08/11/cb6b30ac-5fd1-11e6-af8e-54aa2e849447_story.html?tid=hybrid_experimentrandom_2_na


Paris mayor: Trump is 'so stupid'

Donald Trump is provoking insults from more than just London's new mayor, with the mayor of Paris jumping in to slam the Republican presidential candidate.

"Mr. Trump is so stupid, my God," Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, standing next to new London Mayor Sadiq Khan, said this week when asked about Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States.

Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, has been criticizing Trump for days over the New York billionaire's idea, saying it would prevent him from visiting the U.S. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/279532-paris-mayor-donald-trump-is-so-stupid
