. Unprecedented heat wave set to roast Pacific Northwest and Canada « JO LEE MAGAZINE

Axios – The most severe heat wave on record in the Pacific Northwest and southwestern Canada kicks into high gear Friday and will intensify throughout the weekend and into next week.

Heat waves like this one are significant public health threats, particularly in areas like the Northwest, where many people lack air conditioning.

Extreme heat events are directly tied to human-caused global warming, with studies showing that severe heat events are now on average about 3°F to 5°F hotter than they would be without emissions from human activities.
