Heat Things

Heat Zen:
We seem to be in the middle of a crushing, globally-scaled heat wave. Has this sort of thing ever happened before 1950? Looking at the average global temperature over the last 2000 years, we seem to be at a high point, by a number of different constructions.

I'm not one for apocolyptic scenarios. For example, I don't think the whole world can 'catch fire' from the awful business between Isreal and Lebanon. But we better do something about global warming soon. Maybe Peak Oil will take care of it for us, but I don't think we can count on it (if counting on an economic disaster of global proportions is considered a strategy in any light).

A good friend of mine nearly blacked out from heat exhaustion yesterday. Anyone else feeling the heat?

In a future world, children will work together. To build a giant robot.
