I lived through the 80s this heat is nothing, it's called weather with the jet stream. In the 70s climate experts told everyone by the 90s we would be covered by a glacier

The reluctance or inability of "Conservatives" to acknowledge facts, truth & reality in a timely manner is what makes them a Clear & Present Danger to the safety, security, health & public welfare of America – and human existence on Planet Earth.

If any businesses wanted to show how much they care, they could find ways for people in Appalachia to earn an honest living! Train them! It is called investing!
