I am feeling more and more that my post-sea-rise/climate change novel should be my next project! We are on Day 4 of this weather, if we get a 5th day over 40 we are into record territory. For my farenheit friends, 44C is 111F. No, this is not normal for anywhere other than the centre of Australia, where it’s mostly uninhabitable desert. The only silver lining will be that heatwaves here are usually broken by magnificent storms which come to the rescue from Antartica, and drop the temperature in spectacular fashion (though a “usual” heatwave is a few days over 35C, so who knows?)
