“The report warns that the situation is worsening in countries including Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Romania, Hungary, northern Serbia, Ukraine, Moldova, Ireland and the UK.” Europe’s drought the worst in 500 years. If nothing else, the crazy weather across the globe has been a boon for geocaching. Lost villages, ancient ruins, WWII ships uncovered as extreme heat lowers water levels.

+ Dinosaur tracks from 113 million years ago uncovered due to severe drought conditions. (Something tells me that people who deny climate change probably don’t believe in dinosaurs.)

+ WaPo: Five 1,000-year rain events have struck the U.S. in five weeks. Why? (You know why…)

+ Another side-effect of climate change (along with soaring energy costs): higher utility bills. More than 20 million Americans are behind on their utility bills. And the pandemic shutoff moratoriums are over.
