    Default Another Ridiculous Ridge — Western Wildfires Grow as US Heatwave Casualties Mount

    In Borrego Springs, CA at 10 AM this morning, the temperature was a scorching 116 degrees F. Temperatures today are expected to hit 122 degrees F for this California location — which would tie the all-time high for any date there. But it’s just a microcosm of the record-shattering heat that is now settling in over the US West. Heat that looks like it will remain in place for days and possibly weeks. Heat that is now resulting in tragic instances of loss of life even as it is sparking numerous massive widlfires, melting snowpacks, worsening droughts, and otherwise sparking conditions that are related to a human-forced heating of the globe.

    If, as he predicts, these conditions continue for weeks, say goodbye to your California produce.

    The really scary part is that rather than make social or political adjustments to try living and farming sustainably in places like California or the southwest in general, we will instead borrow and use water from aquifers that are already too low, exacerbating the problem exponentially. I don't think they'll be stopping the water fountains show at the Bellagio anytime soon. Talk about gambling.

    And yes you can be sure it will inevitably affect our country's food supply soon. Maybe we can invest in an ice pipeline from Alaska to LA? Giant block ice cube shipments? But then where would we store them... I'm as baffled as the next guy, in the meantime the weather is just gorgeous here in Boston MA area.

    Well, there are two other scary parts. One, forget ice. This ridge of heat will continue into the Arctic. The other is that above 104ËšF, photosynthesis plummets. Water won't help. That's why I was bidding CA produce goodbye.

    Oh, one more scary thing: a blue ocean.
