    Slightly off topic but one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. Rich Strike was 80-1 odds to win the Kentucky Derby, and the longest shot ever to do so.

    1936 CO2 PPM was 350, now 418 PPM, so lower CO2 higher temps?

    The next major heatwave of the 1540/1757/1936/2006 type is not until 2116 AD. 2042 and 2079 have Saturn opposite Neptune, but both have Jupiter also nearly in line with them when it needs to be in quadrature with them for a major heatwave.
