    Good pick. The historic temperature record has just been beaten on the Via Tolosana today with 44.3°.

    20190628_161847.jpg Great Mell Fell. I've driven past here hundreds of times, but walked over it for the first time today. Fantastic viewpoint.

    And that was this afternoon's new record. It now stands at 45.8 degrees... :o o:

    In the evening?? Is that where you are now? Or in Paris?

    Over 45 in France. That is horrifying. We have to change our lifestyles, fast.

    I'm in Paris where it's just a tad more reasonable. 45.8 was the new record set in the late afternoon. Down south definitely wasn't a good place to be tabbing today.

    Even in the tropics, it gets pretty unpleasant above 45C. Best to cover up in loose, dark color clothing, and drink as little as possible until temps drop in the evening (and then drink loads) to avoid excessive sweating and mineral losses. I recall a wonderful old farmers woman on a Croatian island telling us how they used to be out in the fields by 4am, work until 10am, and then head home for a long siesta in her younger years. Excellent advise for hikers too ....

    In southern Italy my aunt's gardener did the same, 5am-10ish then back for a few hours after 4.
    he's done very well for himself!

    There's no point unless the Chinese, Indians and Brazilians do something, ours is a drop in the ocean in comparison. I think we need a much more radical approach than reducing carbon emissions, its too late for that.

    I mostly agree. We have to reduce emissions now so that the damage stops sooner rather than later, but we're also need to work to mitigate the damage that's already been done.

    Much easier to get people to change to lower/0 carbon alternatives if they are better/cooler/ more ergonomic/ wealth generating rather than misanthropic/harder/and make people poorer.
    Drive for renewable energy is a good example, win / win.

    A nice display of Noctilucent clouds from my tent door on Thurs night over Scarp, Taransay and the Harris hills. They were visible before the sunset ended and stayed for a couple of hours as the electric blue tendrils spread across the sky.

    How to chill after work on a Friday - half a dozen miles of deserted beach, a setting sun and... toasted marshmallows :). Last night on Culbin sands outside Inverness.

    And this was the view north at about midnight - this time of year in the Highlands is just magical.
