It's not some random South vs North dichotomy alone - there are plenty of places with v. high heat and/or humidity in the South too. the best approach is to have hottest places in 1st round (irrespective of location), then the next hottest in 2nd round, and so on... leave likes of mountainous and cool areas for last round

Throughout the world. It was 85-6 in  Montreal/Quebec and the scorching heat was unbearable. There has been a heat wave in NE USA, Arizona, Mexico as well. I like summer, but can't tolerate the heat. 

Only part of it may be attributable to CO2 emissions.

 

Individual weather phenomena do not necessarily reflect long-term climate change ... unless of course one is a climate alarmist trying to scare the public that the world is ending this year. Anthropogenic Climate change due to increased CO2 emissions is real. We must do something about it. But it is not doomsday. And it does not help when every event - from heat waves to hurricanes to hunger to terrorism - is somehow linked to climate change.

 

This guy says it a lot better than I can (this article was written in 2022, but still holds true):

  • First, our assessment of risk can be skewed. If we think this week’s heat wave is a novel event juiced by climate change, rather than within the bounds of observed variability, then we are fooling ourselves. If electrical grids fail and people die this week, that will mean that we are not even prepared for the present. We need only look back to the 1930s to understand that we are also not prepared for the past, much less a more extreme future. Casual claims of detection and attribution can mislead.

  • Second, sustained support for action on climate will require also sustaining public and policy maker trust in science and scientific institutions. Claims that go well beyond scientific understandings place that trust at risk. A scientific consensus doesn’t exist only when it is politically useful — it also exists when it is politically unwelcomed. Accurately producing and reporting on scientific assessments surely helps to foster trust in experts and the institutions that they inhabit.

And, BTW, if one notices - the people complaining about heat waves and CO2 emissions are doing so from their airconditioned spaces, which are among the biggest culprits in emitting CO2. Let them decrease their per capita CO2 emission to that of the average guy in a developing nation that is trying to grow economically. Then, they can talk.

A lot in Europe don’t use air conditioners, dryers and microwaves. Even in QC, some restaurants had open windows and fans. USA is too pampered with appliances and world ki waat lag gayi. And then they patronize us about dependence on coal.
