How dangerously hot could it get in Virginia if fossil-fueled global warming continues? Do Republicans – who, last I checked, also live on this planet we all share – even care, given that their presidential and VP nominees are both fossil fuel tools and climate science deniers??? As to the latter question, the answer is obviously, “no, these sociopaths don’t care if we burn up the only home we’ve got, as long as their fossil fuel BFFs squeeze out every last “pence” (pun intended) of profit from a dying earth. As to the former question, how hot might it get if we don’t take urgent action to switch to a clean energy economy?

For a quick, visual answer ,see the graphs below for Richmond, Roanoke, Norfolk and Northern Virginia (using Washington, DC as the nearest and most-relevant proxy). For a bit longer answer, seen the new report by Climate Central, “U.S. Faces Dramatic Rise in Extreme Heat, Humidity.” And don’t say nobody warned you…
