In 1989 my Father died of a heart attack in a brutally hot summer. The weather and heat have gotten worse since then. When I saw lemons growing on a porch in Nutley NJ it was stunning. Part of me says we have less air pollution than we used to. Has the ozone layer still retreated ?
I remember when fans in you hand residence or dept. store were normal. Not sub-freezing temperatures on mass transit or in every store. We are off-kilter in too may ways. In grammar school I won honorable mention for a Science Fair solar oven in 1966.
