Temperatures in South Texas are brutal right now,

and it is only June. Daily high temperatures along the Rio Grande (Brownsville, Laredo, ElPaso) are in the high nineties up to about 105 F. There will be a slight break in about five days. But it's only June. August is gruesome, IMO.

Living in a camp with no control over temps, AC, access to food and drink, bathing, etc, has to be both miserable and potentially deadly.

15. It's unseasonably cool in New Mexico this summer...

Maybe if we become Climate Change deniers or Biblical prediction enthusiast, Climate Change will alter into mystical reversal, as polar ice caps refreeze, by an Act of God.

2. I think we'll start seeing a lot of deaths in the concentration camps pretty soon.

The weather is just starting to turn brutally hot and humid. Soon we'll have temps over 100. Most vulnerable will be the young, the old and people with health issues.

4. We had a freeze watch in the Four Corners last night, and again tonight.

They're getting snow in the mountains up north.

5. I can't believe that this is the type of people that any Americans want to be... to cage humans

I am reminded of scenes from Star Wars, a pit of despair in the desert?

8. It is colder then usual where I am

We have had a high of 82.
Tonight will be 58.
Lots of wind, rain and clouds.
My heart goes out to all those held in concentration camps.

The hypocritical pro life people have got to be held accountable.

10. Rethugs, by failing to act on climate change, are 100% responsible for this.

They should be charged criminally with every death that happens in these camps.

13. we've had toruble in michigan...........

it has been so wet farmers can't plant corn, and the crop is way behind schedule.

everywhere you look global warming is putting more and more stress on the system and this is just the "honeymoon" phase of it all. by 2050 we will all be suffering.

we drove about 50 miles over the weekend to camp

field after field either unplanted or 3-4 inch corn....this is some of the best farm ground in the world

16. Inside the camps where they warehouse the children

They basically keep it about as cold as a refrigerator, with inadequate blankets or warm clothes.

They're more likely to get sick from being too cold than too hot, unless they throw some of them outside.
