Sadly, despite 30 years warning of climate change, hundreds of Canadians are dying of a phenomenal heatwave. However earlier this year deep Texas--almost all the way to Mexico City--scores died of a cold outbreak. Meanwhile, the Aussies are up in arms that climate change is a hoax? Yeah baby, yeah. Consider your heating bill advance warning that your house isn't ready for the Great Resettlement of Earth.
People cling to the edge because it's a known place. The fuzzy middle is uncomfortable even for the best informed. God forbid I be wrong! Though with this very rapid change many times I hope I am.
@idanoo Now living in Chch after leaving Brisbane, climate was one of the big reasons for moving. The cold might sting my cheeks in the morning, but it's a welcome change from the humid furnace of Queensland summers.
@michael Oh I bet! I can barely handle normal Aussie weather.
I much prefer cold over heat, but was not expecting the sudden near-zero temps in Auckland 😅
