CLIMATE UNRAVELING ACROSS PLANET: 1000 RECORD HIGHS BROKEN IN U.S. IN ONE WEEK
TULSA WORLD 28-JUN-12

Hundreds of heat-related records recently have fallen across the United States. In the past week, 1,011 records have been broken around the country, including 251 new daily high temperature records on Tuesday. Tulsa tied its calendar day record high for June 25, 105 degrees, on Monday. The heat is creating consequences ranging from the catastrophic to the comical, from wildfires in the Rocky Mountains to frying bacon on an Oklahoma sidewalk. If forecasts hold, more records could fall in the coming days in the central and western parts of the country. University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver says the current heat wave “is bad now by our current definition,” but that this will be “far more common in the years ahead.”
