  1. “How long these weather extremes last is critical, the researchers say. While two or three days of 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius) pose little threat, 20 days or more can lead to extreme heat stress, which can trigger deaths, forest fires and lost harvests.”

    Really? Where does this dude live? We have extreme summers here, where it gets to 86 degrees for months. It doesn’t trigger deaths; it triggers golf.

  2. I’ve lived in North Carolina, New Orleans, Michigan and Virginia. Only in Michigan would days above 86F be considered really hot. In NOLA, 86 for consecutive days in July-August would probably be considered a cool spell.
