Listen for a second
A forest fire - possibly caused by lightening - just killed at least 62 people and injured 59 more in Portugal. That’s my country.
As is usual, when tragedies happen in Portugal only Portuguese and Brazilian people seem to care, but I really need to make a point right now.
We are a country that used to have the nicest weather. We had winters that never got too cold and we had summers that never got too hot. However, it’s not even officially summer and we’re already facing 40-45 ºC temperatures. This is NOT normal for us.
These high temperatures (in a country full of woods and vegetation) are the reason our wildfires are so hard to put down and destroy everything in their path.
At least 62 people died today. Again, possibly because of lightening in an overheated country. Don’t any of you ever try to tell me global warming is a myth. Ever.
