As Europe battles biblically extreme weather,
. . . experts say it’s linked to climate change.

Italy, driest spring in 60 years,
. . . rainfall totals 80% below normal.
Portugal, a thousand firefighters,
. . . were deployed to extinguish 2 forest fires,
Heat-waves, caused more fatalities in Europe,
. . . than any other extreme weather event.

USA too.
117 degrees the other day in Redding, California.
That's way north in California not the southern desert part.

Even nut job that rules North Korea is talking about getting solar.

What?  Sunshine.

The Redding-Red Bluff area has historically reported outlandish temperatures.  
Quoting from Wikipedia "The highest official recorded temperature in Redding was 118 °F (48 °C) on July 20, 1988. That was recorded at the nearby Redding airport. Some people in town recorded as high as 122 °F (50 °C) that same day. Redding has an average possible sunshine of 88%, the second-highest percentage (after Yuma, Arizona) of any US city.[11]"

It looks to me like that as global warming proceeds the absolute maximum ever temperatures aren't going up much, but that those highs will be approached more often.
