While a pre-summer heatwave hits France this week, the French weather presenter Marc Hay changed his tone during his weather reports and became more alarmist. “I decided a few days ago to stop using my usual tone, which I find, as the months go by, a bit lame. It doesn't work anymore. People have to understand that France, clearly, is going to burn this week!" he warned. "People in Toulouse told me on the phone that they were suffocating. Of course, we are suffocating: 37 degrees! Who wants to have 37 degrees in mid-June?" Temperatures will reach 42 degrees in the South of France for one of its earliest heatwaves. "I think we need to change the way we talk about this because it does not print. And clearly, people need to realize that what is happening is just the tip of the iceberg," added Marc Hay. “What happened in 2019 is happening again, and what's happening right now is going to happen again. The summer is just beginning, other heatwaves are possible and all this will get worse.” And he is right. This is just the beginning, we don’t have time and we need to act against climate change now! This is quite an unexpected and unusual stance in France when the mainstream media still use photos of beaches and vacations to illustrate the current heat wave and global warming (see: https://app.wedonthavetime.org/posts/3731cb56-af0a-497a-92d1-296fbc6326b5).
