Vandana Mistry Funnily enough, we in I just want to drink coffee and bake things shirt Austin, Texas, have yet to hit the century mark, although the heat index is definitely over 100°F. This time last year and 2017, we were deep in it already. Felsham Harris Well it has topped out at 41C in northern Italy this afternoon. I’m lucky to be in the sticks, in the cities this heat is just insane. Just check in on seniors or frail folk you know to make sure they are ok, they’ll appreciate the thought. Michele Dunn Cue the planks spouting off about the temperatures they tolerate every year. That’s the point, this is UNUSUAL and therefore people are finding it difficult to cope. Get it? Sheesh! they may as well be in an oven – a window gap makes no difference to the temp. Also pls do not forget to water the birds and other animals and come to your home

John B Champion We as a human race rely on I just want to drink coffee and bake things shirt air conditioners and yet we complain about the energy usage and the pollution from our power stations. Why can’t we study how houses and shops were cooled before air-con. I had found a cool refreshing spot in a hallway, letting the breeze flow through. No aircon just the breeze. Suddenly it was hot, hot air. My friend was in his bedroom, and he had turned his air conditioner on. This cool breeze had picked up the hot air from the airconditioner Maria Rafferton Baking in 38 degrees? In Australia, we regularly have temperatures over 40 and even over 45!
Rand David All of these are pathetic bandaids on a gushing arterial wound. Good luck keeping cities cool with trees and different colored paints when climate changes shove city Temps up another dozen degrees in the next few decades. Roy Corrales The only way is tree planting like crazy… just imagine and compare yourself walking a large city street boiling at 38C with zero covers, no trees, no shadow… highly possible that you might die. Now the same but full of trees both sides and lots of covers even with the same temperature? at least you can walk fine with your bottle of water. It’s not Rocket Science folks! BBC
