Americans, global warming, 100 degree heat, aging infrastructure
Well, it's all come together for the next few days.
Americans caused global warming by driving cars that are too big on gas that is not taxed enough.
So the world warms up and America with it with large areas of the country for the next few days forecast to experience over 100 degree heat.
So we all put the AC on.
But because you have been so tight and cheap about keeping your infrastructure up to scratch (unlike in Europe) there is a chance that the high voltage network will not be able to cope.
This is a problem.
I say tax the lot.
