105 in Portland, Oregon.

121 in Lytton, British Columbia

101 in New York, New York

78 in Siberia, Russia

But there's no such thing as global warming, folks. Nothing to see here. Move along now...move along...

The local news was also saying that nearly 100 people in British Columbia had died from heat related causes. We're losing a lot of folks as well in the Pacific Northwest. I think they have around 50 dead in the Portland area alone.

New York has resorted to having buses idle at certain locations running their air conditioning wide open as cooling spots for people.

Got curious and looked it up.

About 100 lightning bolts strike the Earth's surface every second That's about 8 million per day and 3 billion each year.

You had nearly 1/8th of the entire planets lighting strikes in less than a day. That's fucking unbelieveable.

And our big oil companies have once again outdone themselves. A leak in a gas pipeline on an ocean rig caught fire and now the ocean is literally on fire.

I read a year or so ago that by the time my son (he's 8) is in his 40's he'll be able to take a tour boat to the north pole during the summer.

While there he will not see a single piece of ice.
