Six die in Montreal as heat wave grips eastern Canada
INGRID PERITZ AND JACK HAUEN
MONTREAL AND TORONTO
PUBLISHED JULY 3, 2018

Scorching temperatures have led to six deaths in Montreal and prompted authorities to step up emergency measures as a sweltering heat wave grips much of central and eastern Canada.

Firefighters are going door-to-door to check on at-risk residents in Montreal and health officials have set up drop-in cooling centres in the city to offer respite from sizzling temperatures reaching 40 C once the humidity is factored in.

Southern Ontario has been hard hit as well. The humidex in Ottawa on Canada Day was 47 C, the highest recorded for the city.

Mylène Drouin, Montreal’s regional director of public health, says the number of calls for ambulance transport rose to 640 on Tuesday, compared with a normal average of 540. Medics say they have had little rest since the heat wave began on Saturday.

Ireland in state of ‘absolute drought’ as heatwave continues
Irish Water extends hosepipe ban to rest of country as heatwave continues
The vast majority of the country officially enters a state of “absolute drought” today with no rainfall recorded at 24 out of 25 weather stations during the last two weeks.

The extreme weather conditions have prompted Irish Water to expand a hosepipe ban from the Greater Dublin Area to the whole country from Friday morning....

The oppressive heat wave that has been baking the eastern United States and southern Canada since the end of June has not only shattered temperature records, but has also turned deadly.

CBC News reported that more than 100 people were treated for heat-related issues at Canada Day events in Ottawa on Sunday. At least 17 people have died in Montreal since Friday as a result of the extreme heat, according to CNN.

Global warming is to blame for the current global heat wave

Global-warming-blame-heat-records-worldwide-experts-warn-heatwave-continue

We've had heatwaves before, but never a heatwave all across the northern hemisphere. Its record hot in the US west. Its record hot in the east. Its record hot in Europe from Ireland all across. Its record hot in Siberia. Its hot all across the northern hemisphere. There's just one explanation for this unprecedented hemispheric heat wave---and thats global warming.

The planet is warming, and its hot. Everywhere. For longer. Just like the climate models predicted.

Baby its hot outside. And global CO2 emissions are to blame

We're having a heatwave. And CO2 is to blame. Cheers!

Usually it's the Urban Heat Island that creates many of these "records".

U.K. meteorologists won’t be declaring a June 28 temperature reading as the hottest recorded in Scotland since the early 20th century after discovering a car parked near the weather station may have contaminated the data.
The city of Motherwell, southeast of Glasgow, recorded a record-high temperature of 91.8 degrees on June 28, according to Met Office figures, breaking the previous record of 91.2 degrees set in Greycrook in August 2003.
The record temperature reading even found its way into the Washington Post. The Post’s Capital Weather Gang included Motherwell’s heat in a round-up of record-high temperatures around the world.

Right-O. Like that big urban heat island on Mt. Washington in New Hampshire and the one in Siberia along the coast of the Arctic Ocean. I'm sure there are lots imaginary big cities in Siberia on the coast of the Arctic Ocean----not. And the temps in the oceans measured from met station buoys......there must be lots of invisible but definitely big urban centers in the oceans all around those buoys, I guess-----not.

Or maybe the world is just getting hotter.

Even the one example you cite of a "heat island" effect from Ireland was not the only station with record high temps in Ireland. There were some record high temp elsewhere in Ireland and in Scotland as well as from met stations in sites around most of western Europe. And where it wasn't record hot, it was close to being record hot.

Face facts----we're seeing an unprecedented hemispheric-scale heat wave occurring right now all around the northern hemisphere. Its pretty amazing.

The "urban heat island" effect definitely does not explain record high temps recorded from met stations on buoys in the ocean.

Now this:

Africa’s Hottest Reliably Measured Temperature on Record: 124.3°F on Thursday in Algeria


A historic heat wave in northern Africa on Thursday, July 5, brought Africa its hottest reliably measured temperature on record: 124.3°F (51.3°C), at Ouargla, Algeria. Ouargla (population 190,000) is the capital city of Ouargla Province in the Algerian Sahara Desert, at an elevation of 719 feet (219 meters)...

So this incredible heat wave is not just encompassing almost the entire Northern Hemisphere but apparently the Southern as well. Amazing 8O

10 Facts on Climate Change
AND Its Impact on the Weather Patterns
OUR Home planet is undergoing an extended period of accelerating Climate Change.
The impacts of Climate Change on our weather patterns are worsening exponentially.
Extremes of change in the temperature, precipitation, drought… are intensifying.
The time periods within which the changes occur are shortening, therefore the rate of changes are accelerating.
As an outcome of (1) to (4) above, the frequency and severity of climatic disasters are exponentially increasing.
The disasters are targeting the planet’s water, soil, food and energy resources, increasing human vulnerability and triggering a die-off.
Emerging patterns strongly suggest that the consequence of climate change are increasingly more catastrophic, beyond the wildest worst case conditions ever imaginable.
The period of change could last for years to decades, Millennia to epoch. [Most of that would prove of no consequence to humans.]
There`re NO known patterns for definitive comparisons of the extent of the changes.
Unless the adverse affects of human impact on the planet are removed, or substantially reduced, die-off will occur sooner rather than later.

Heatwave reveals important vulnerabilities we should not ignore
Remarkable spell of weather proves the urgent need to get serious on climate change

This year has been a year to remember weather wise, and we are only just past the halfway mark. Recent weeks have brought extreme temperatures and drought. Long-standing weather records have been threatened, while others have been broken. The hot and dry conditions are set to continue for at least the next 10 days. The next few weeks will tell if 2018 becomes synonymous with the perfect storm for water resources and agriculture.....

LOS ANGELES -- Southern California baked under a heat wave Friday that forecasters correctly predicted would be one for the record books, with widespread triple-digit highs and increased fire danger. Officials urged residents to take advantage of cooling centers in libraries and other public facilities and to watch out for those who may be especially vulnerable, warning that minor heat-related illnesses can worsen quickly and turn fatal.

Thousands without power in Los Angeles after high demand due to heat wave

...Many areas in California on Friday broke their daily high temperature records, according to CNN meteorologists. Downtown Los Angeles reached a high of 108 degrees, breaking its previous daily record of 94 degrees, which was set in 1992...


Setting a new record that is 14 degrees beyond the last record...doesn't happen every day! But maybe it's gonna start being part of the new normal? :o 8O

Back to geography class for you Onlooker. About 2/3rds of Algeria is in the Sahara Dessert and all of it is in the Northern Hemisphere.

Coastal Algeria is about 35° North, about the North Carolina/Virginia border.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1995_Chicago_heat_wave

“The 1995 Chicago heat wave was a heat wave which led to 739 heat-related deaths in Chicago over a period of five days.[1] Most of the victims of the heat wave were elderly poor residents of the city, who could not afford air conditioning and did not open windows or sleep outside for fear of crime.[2] The heat wave also heavily impacted the wider Midwestern region, with additional deaths in both St. Louis, Missouri[3] and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.[4]”

There's a good sociological study of that disaster, Newf, called Heat Wave by Erik Klinenberg.

Some surprising patterns in the death toll. And he really skewers the media for sensationalizing the very few crimes that were happening, coverage that caused so many elderly to seal themselves basically in their own coffins!
