were hit by heatwaves that have become more frequent over the last half-century

Meanwhile, conservative America still has its head up its ass insisting that climate change is a liberal conspiracy and evolution the thing of the devil.

In a short time (mostly) everything will recover to pre-crash values, with the big exception of the stocks of the British banking sector, who will be hit the hardest.
