Picking fruit at 42 C: work can be a struggle
But it has to be done despite the heat, says Tamaulipas laborer

Leonardo Castillo, a 25-year-old day laborer who likes to boast about his strength, admits that when temperatures soared on Wednesday, work became a struggle.

“This time it really floored us. It was the 42-degree heat . . . when we were loading the truck with 20 tonnes of oranges. I got dehydrated and several of my workmates vomited.”

So trying were the conditions that Leonardo even feared for his life at one stage.

“Up there with the oranges we couldn’t breathe properly. I started to suffocate and the truth is I felt really bad and thought I wasn’t going to make it.”

thanks for these updates, mbs. It looks like Iran is getting hit, too:

http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2017/06/0 ... an-Kenarak

On the orders of President Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian has visited Sistan-and-Baluchestan to address a somewhat insufferable situation in the wake of a record heatwave, which has hit the southeastern province.

The province has witnessed temperatures of 56 °C (132 °F), which have caused power outages, and complicated water supply amid high consumption.


57 C is the highest temp ever reliably recorded on the planet.

What about the women wrapped in their Burkas? Those are all men in that picture, and it has to be far worse totally covered.

So are all the women going to die first?

I'm pretty sure they can take those off in the privacy of their own home. That of course becomes another way to keep women home-bound...you can leave the house, but only covered in so much clothing that you would soon collapse from heat exhaustion.

This is not true you have a look on the Tuareg Nomads in Sahara :)

If you do so you find interesting clothing and other beautiful things:

USA
Upcoming heat wave likely to break records in Lehigh Valley


Image

Meteorologists say Sunday and Monday will be the period where we really start to see the temperatures (and humidity) rise. Highs will reach into the lower 90s on Sunday, but may be just short of the record mark of 94 degrees set back in 1984. However, the heat will simply dominate on Monday and we should have no problem besting the record high of 92 degrees set all the way back in 1949.

Tuesday, the weather service says the air mass will remain pretty much unchanged as we continue to see temperatures remain in the lower 90s across much of the area. We’ll need to hit 95 to best the record mark established in 1956.

In India, Slight Rise in Temperatures Is Tied to Heat Wave Deaths

I was petrified of global warming 20 years ago and so moved from the Lehigh Valley to Norcal because Lehigh was having increasing drought and heat waves.

Still hasn't burned up. Neither is California after its brush with death.

I woke up on an island where it was around 50 degrees, and drove to inland Maine where it was over 92 degrees in the shade! Quite a difference in 100 miles. This heat wave hit us fast and is really amazing. Maine is going to be the place everyone wants to get to soon!

Climate Change Has Made Heat Waves Much More Deadly, Mainly for the Poor

https://www.technologyreview.com/s/6080 ... -the-poor/

It is generally held that if we can avoid warming the planet by 2 oC above pre-industrial temperatures, we may be able to avoid the worst effects of climate change. In India, though, just a quarter of that warming has more than doubled the risk of deadly heat waves.
