The French estimate that over 3,000 people have died from heat-related causes due to a blistering European heat wave that has affected France, Italy, Portugal, and Spain in the last three weeks. Over 2,000 have died near Paris alone! Officials blame the high death toll on the length of the heat wave and the fact that most Parisian buildings lack air conditioning. It’s so bad, that the French government is calling health workers from vacation and even some morgue workers back from retirement to deal with the crisis. I think that it is fair to say that global warming is not only very real, but a threat to our very existence.
