The 2003 and 2010 heatwaves were unprecedented, no doubt.
that was a sheer joy to listen to Scarlet.
So, it has been hot before in Europe, nothing new about that.
..and in America..
“115 DIE IN U.S. HEAT WAVE.
Sunday readings reached 108 deg.”

…and in Mexico
“30 PERISH IN MEXICAN HEAT WAVE.
The temperature rose to 120 degrees in the shade last Friday, at the height of the heat wave.”
~14 August 1952
…and in Australia .. again
“Birds Die In Heat Wave.
Excessive heat at Ballidu last week killed 40 head of poultry on the property of one farmer…in a shade temperature of 120deg.”

..no doubt about it:
“HEAT WAVE STRIKES MELBOURNE. HOTTEST FOR 12 YEARS.
Temperatures soared to 109.7 degrees at Melbourne at 4 o’clock this afternoon..”
