What we're covering

. Blisteringly high temperatures are being reported across the world, breaking records on multiple continents — the latest in a trend caused by the climate crisis. The first week of July was the hottest week on record, data shows.

. Southern Iran registered a heat index value — the apparent “feels like” temperature to the human body — of 152 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday. Heat indexes of 160 are widely considered the upper threshold of what humans can endure.

. In the United States, millions of people in the Southwest and South face dangerously high temperatures. Some places, such as Texas and Arizona, have experienced a weeks-long heat streak.
The heat has primed the land for fires in places like Spain and Greece. Smoke from wildfires in Canada is triggering unhealthy air warnings across the northern tier of the US.

It's been this hot before, but holy shitballs, it's HOT for being a mile up.

We are beginning to see places that are just no longer habitable year round.
