41°C in England next week?
England and Wales could see a new all-time high, with temperatures projected to reach up to 41°C. Currently the all-time high there is 38.7°C, according to Kachelmannwetter.com.
There’s still uncertainty about where exactly the focus of the heat will be positioned. But certain is that there are going to be a couple of hot days next week for western Europe. A week ago, some models had been forecasting highs of up to 45°C for western Europe, but have since backed off considerably.
Karl Lauterbach: Germany’s doomsday health minister?
Even Germany’s alarmist COVID federal health minister, Prof. Karl Lauterbach, has jumped in on the climate hysteria as well, urgently warning some days ago at Twitter of “a mega heat wave with the risk of death for many people”. Lauterbach tweeted:
We must start now to protect the elderly and sick from the mega heat wave. Stock up on fluids, fans, talk about importance of hydration. Be accessible. This heat wave could cause a lot of deaths.”
Warning of impending death waves is nothing new for Germany’s Federal Minister of Health, Lauterbach, who is known for his dramatic death forecasts related to the Corona virus. Unfortunately for his career, he’s been wrong on almost every count.
Currently, most Germans are far more fearful of freezing due to a lack of heating gas this coming winter and soaring inflation.
Lauterbach would have been better-advised first consulting with the DWD German national weather service before announcing the heat death-wave.
DWD sees no heat crisis
DWD spokesman Uwe Kirsche explained the Berliner Zeitung: “We were wondering why the 40-degree mark had been mentioned so often.’ The only thing that is certain at the moment is that although it is getting warmer, a real heat wave is probably not heading for the capital. Instead, the DWD is expecting temperatures between 33 and 35 degrees in mid-July.”
For those of you searching for Lauterbach’s tweet of heat death, you can spare yourselves the effort. According to Achgut.com: “Lauterbach’s tweet disappeared during the course of Thursday, according to the Berliner Zeitung report.
But a screenshot was still visible there.”
