Fark it's HOT! part XXIV

My Gods!  It's 6:30pm and it's still 43.7C (111F).  Major public transport failure. We've got another week of this (and being good citizens, our little household doesn't have aircon). The joy.

And Stoaty asks:
...if I could suddenly make the world, or at least this little bit of it, 2 degrees warmer all year round, would I be better or worse off?
I think I can emphatically answer in the negative. When these events are more common, that's problamatic.

UPDATE:  Worrying developments.  Phone lines down.  EFTPOS not working in the bottle shop.  Punters cannot purchase beer.  Widespread unrest expected once people can be bothered to riot.
