Ugh, I was recently reading Kim Stanley Robinson’s The Ministry for the Future and the deadly Indian heat wave that helps kick off the story was a pretty terrifying glimpse of likely things to come.

Crikey, I like me a jammy Shiraz.

I just read grapes start to shut down at 95F (how do I convert Furlongs to Celsius?), so too hot for them too.

Some parts of the U.S. get the worst of Canada’s winter weather (which hasn’t been too bad in recent years, I wonder why?) and the worst of the Gulf’s summer heat & humidity.
