So, now we jump back to the side of global warming as the real deal. Putting aside the sciences that so far “seem” to suggest otherwise. This report from RT.com say that the UK has broken a first time temperature ever recorded. 40.02°C which translates to 104.36°F. So, in short, its very hot. They also had some hot temps recently in southern parts of the EU, but those areas are noted to be a bit more common with warm temps. Perhaps that is why a large part of the population lives on the coastlines.
Please keep in mind that due to the Political power plays that are killing people between Russia, USA, EU, China, Japan, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, and Venezuela, you may not be able to view articles from RT.com.
