No. No idea. Seems contrary to me, since power consumption has been maxed out here, correlating with this heat wave.

And it's not like the current government is going to push for fewer emissions...

It's 33 degrees here... Insane. Heat plus smog (air pollution). It is hard to breathe outside...

Been rather mild here (just under 30C) with intermittent rainstorms. The heatwave is due back for the weekend (which happens to be a long weekend for us!).

At 6PM - 81F (27C), 32% humidity, constant 8-12mph breeze with clear blue skies. Nights are high 50s, perfect sleeping weather with a light cotton comforter.

River is still running at late spring highs and expected to remain so through September due to heavy winter snowfall runoff being released before fall rains begin.

A very, very pleasant summer.

Yes, it has been a pretty darn good summer here weather-wise, though not as mild as your Pacific coast weather.

We've had thunderbolts and lightning all weekend it seems.

At least three big thunderstorms since Friday night. Very, very frightning! (Galileo, Galileo!)

70 right now. High was 80 but the humidity was low. It's been like that for the past two or so weeks. Wonderful, wonderful weather.

It was particularly nice this weekend being out at TDGuys buddy's cabin. I even went kayaking!

I don't know if it counts as weather, but we just felt Virginia's earthquake.
