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.
