High heat is a destructive force to both the environment as well as the people who inhabit those areas.
For instance, big heatwaves in the pacific northwest last Summer resulted in multiple unexpected deaths. There are multiple people in that region who have managed just nice without air conditioning for decades before seeing a big heat spike up to 115 degrees in the Summer of 2021. I heard about awful folks dying in their homes because of the rampant heat. For those who could afford an a/c, there was a shortage of component almost instantly when the rapidly changing temperatures started to rise for afternoons on end. The family members of mine who live in that area were suffering for weeks until the heatwaves subsided. I was living in Phoenix while I was in the last few years as well as understand what it’s like to experience rapidly changing temperatures upwards to 110 degrees in the afternoon sun. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised moving to Albuquerque as well as finding a rather mild weather conditions compared to central AZ. A lot of people don’t realize that Albuquerque has a rather high elevation, sitting at 5,312 feet above sea level. Every one of us live in a desert that is so high in the mountains that our rapidly changing temperatures are mild compared to places in AZ like Phoenix. Living in 110 degree heat is unbearable in our mind. I like being in Albuquerque as well as not feeling like I’m getting fried by the sun every hour I’m kneeling outdoors. And once every one of us get to the Winter season, our weather drops down into the 20s at night with afternoontime weather usually in the low 40s.
