California is now caught in a vicious feedback spiral of heat, drought and fire. Recently 54 degrees, the hottest temperature ever on earth, was recorded in Death Valley. If this can happen in California dreaming of all places it could happen anywhere and soon will. The evidence that a vast horror of unimagineable global proportions is on the way is now overwhelming, but sadly all we shall get from Cop26 is more empty promises and green twaddle instead of closing down the oil industry and banning coal. Goobye earth. Tough on the kids.
