The weather, currently.
Well, it looks like our monsoonal weather pattern arrived just in the knick of time! The rain this week will be helpful in keeping our temperatures down. That also means the weather pattern will keep us from breaking the record for hottest month recorded! Right now, the hottest month recorded for the Denver area was set back in 2012. 2022 is just behind 2012 in 2nd place for hottest month of record.
Sheesh! So what can you expect for your Tuesday:
1) Cooler weather! Highs in the mid 80s.
2) Chances of afternoon and evening thunderstorms.
3) Get out in the morning if you can for a walk. It will be so nice outside!
What you need to know, currently.
Amid escalating extreme weather events around the world, Congressional staffers staged a historic protest today. Congressional staffers that staged a sit-in, and were arrested, while protesting against the climate change policy stalemate.
We published a story, written by our founder, Eric Holthaus, on the event.
“Saul Levin, a climate policy staffer for Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) who helped organized the action and was one of those arrested, said it’s the first time in US history that current congressional staffers have peacefully protested their own party’s leaders inside the US Congress.”
“Last week in a widely publicized speech, Biden failed to declare a climate emergency — a move that would have authorized the use of the Defense Production Act to build heat pumps and solar panels, among many other possibilities. Days later, 60 members of Congress, including Bush, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), wrote a letter to Biden demanding he use the ‘full power’ of the executive branch due to the ‘scope and urgency of the crisis.’"
