Heatwave threatens Tunisia’s power supply

Tunisia is unable to supply its residents with sufficient electricity as a result of the increased demand caused by the heatwave, the minister of energy revealed yesterday.

In a press conference held in Tunis, Minister of Energy, Mining and Renewables, Hela Cheikhrouhou, said: “The state company is facing a crisis due to the increasing daily electricity consumption, mainly during the current heatwave.”

She said that the daily consumption of electricity has increased by 11 per cent compared to the same period last year.

In addition to the current heatwave, she said the suspension of work in gas fields in the south of the country due to the protests calling for investment contributed to the crisis because it reduced the productivity of a number of electricity plants.

In an effort to deal with the gas shortage, the minister said a deal had been struck with neighbouring Algeria.

She also said that the daily consumption of electricity in the country has almost reached the peak, noting that the current daily consumption is 3,800 Megawatt while the expected peak demand is between 3,600 and 3,900 Megawatt.....

My flaming war with this hellish heat wave

Literally speaking, it’s impossible to beat the heat. I know. I tried.

This morning, I walked outside and started violently punching and kicking the juicy atmosphere. My vicious karate seemed to have no effect on the humidity and haze. When my neighbor came out to retrieve her morning paper and cried out, “What are you doing, idiot,” I knew it was time to retreat indoors. Fatigued and sweaty, I took a long, cold shower.

Just because I couldn’t literally beat the heat, didn’t mean I was going to let the heat beat me. I’m terribly stubborn like that. It was at this point that I devised a masterful plan to beat the heat, not physically, but by employing psychological warfare.

A few hours after my tete-e-tete with the weather, I walked out onto my sunny driveway, wearing a fleece vest and carrying my fire pit. It was brutally hot; the hottest weather this region has seen in 1 million years (according to a local weather blog).

China in the grip of sweltering heatwave with temperatures hitting 50 deg C

BEIJING - As many as 21 provinces and regions in China are baking under a scorching heatwave even as the south reels from devastating floods which killed at least 50 people and forced 1.6 million to flee their homes.

A heat wave will expand from northern China to the central and eastern regions in the coming three days, reported state media. As much as one-third of China's land mass will be affected.

Maximum temperatures in 31 counties and cities in Xinjiang, Ningxia, Gansu, Shaanxi and Sichuan have hit record highs. The Chinese city of Xi'an in Shaanxi saw ground temperatures hitting as high as 50 deg C on Monday (July 10), according to a report on news portal Sina.

Surprising Scientists, 2017 Could Be among Hottest on Record
Global temperatures this year have been 1.64 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th-century average
Heat spiked in spots across the globe. Africa saw its hottest June ever recorded. Europe and South America were much warmer than average. The American Southwest saw a heat wave break multiple temperature records, as well. Eastern Russia was an anomaly, with cooler-than-average conditions, even as the rest of the country was much warmer than average.

Hottest day ever in Shanghai as heat wave bakes China

Shanghai sweltered under a new record high of 40.9°C (105°F) on Friday (Jul 21), authorities said as they issued a weather "red alert" over a stubborn heat wave that has plagued much of the country.

Hospitals in the city have reported increased numbers of patients suffering from heat-related illnesses, according to state media, and the Shanghai zoo said it was putting large blocks of ice into some animal enclosures to help them beat the heat, while providing frozen apples to its pandas.

China's most populous city has baked under soaring summer temperatures for more than two weeks and Friday afternoon reached the hottest point since the establishment of its benchmark weather station in 1872, the municipal weather bureau said.

Other areas of China also have seen records set in recent weeks, in what has been a torrid summer so far for much of the country, while large areas of south-central China have endured raging floods from torrential rain....

A fellow on another forum has posted about current conditions on the upper Chesapeake. He noted that his property once had 6 springs, but they have all gone dry due to excessive water draw down. And also that it's hot this year.
