The Idea Garden

What’s your summertime temperature?

It’s been an extraordinarily long and hot summer here at The Idea Garden and it’s not over yet. Our 30C+ summer-holiday temperatures aren’t at all what we’re used to in the foothills of the Rockies, at least not for such an extended period.

According to Climate Central and the World Meteorological Association’s new interactive map, perhaps these high summer temperatures are what we will have to look forward to in future years.

Check out the situation where you live with this interactive map showing you the temperatures of major cities by 2100. Calgary, the closest city to where I live and work, is projected to have summertime temperatures similar to Los Angeles by then–unless we do something more about reducing our carbon emissions.
