I've been walking in the morning, enjoying cooler temperatures and low humidity in Atlanta.
Those I meet along the way comment how nice it is, compared with the 90-plus days of a week or so ago.
Morning brings hope: The newly risen sun shining through the trees. People walking their dogs. Folks driving off to work.
Meanwhile, in Paris, temperatures rise above 100 degrees. Paris!
In London, insufferable heat has replaced the mild summers of Shakespeare's plays.
A new report in the British journal Nature found that warming is now uniform across the globe. For most of the last 2000 years, warming and cooling have occurred at different places at different times, even events like the Little Ice Age. But now, temperatures keep rising at the same time over most of the globe.
It's a beautiful morning. They used to not seem so rare.
