Global Warming in the Bay Area
San Francisco is *never* this hot in July. We usually get about a week of perfect weather in October, but never in July. And when we do have perfect weather, it always cools down at night. Not this time:
Records were also set throughout the San Francisco Bay area, including Livermore at 115 degrees, San Rafael at 108 degrees and San Jose at 102 degrees, according to the weather service. San Francisco's 87 degrees topped an 81-degree record set in 1917.Oh, but global warming isn't happening. We're not used to such hot weather; if it doesn't cool down soon, we're going to have many cases of heath exhaustion. I went hiking yesterday in Fairfax and a friend who is in excellent shape almost passed out.
Power use across the state broke records Friday and again Saturday - unusual because it was the weekend.
