Gettin' hotter in the desert, especially at night. Increases of 10+ degrees F in southwestern cities since 1950s are a hot reality.
Sprawling pavement, rooftops, and masses of cars & trucks push up the mercury in thermometers.
Coal powerplants making energy for electricity-hogging AC units, etc. push up the mercury in the environment, fish, and our own bodies.
Take the moral and ethical high road and save your own ass by planting trees, driving & consuming less, and reducing energy use.
You'll feel cooler.
