Monday August 24th… Dear Diary. The main purpose of this ongoing blog will be to track United States extreme or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials).😉
Main Topic: Earth Doling Out Wind And Fire…More Tropical Notes And Reports From A Flaming Hot West
Dear Diary. No. This is not your grandfather’s climate when the musical group Earth Wind and Fire had their heyday during the 1970s and 1980s. In 2020 we are having to deal with ramped up heat waves leading to conflagrations and stronger hurricanes because of an increase in sea surface temperatures. Therefore, mother Earth is doling out worse fires and higher wind.
The cases in point this week will be a continuation of the awful fires in California due to a heat wave I’ve named Beelzebub and a potential major hurricane in Laura bearing down on the northern Gulf coast. Today I will be listing Twitter notes with article links from experts in both climate crisis related events.
Here is more on Laura and Marco. The latest information, which will be updated during Monday, will appear at the top of this list:

Items will be archived on this site for posterity. In most instances click on the pictures of each tweet to see each article. The most noteworthy items will be listed first.)
Now here are some of today’s articles and notes on the horrid COVID-19 pandemic:
