Miami bakes in unusual heat before Democratic debates kick

Curated via Twitter from Mashable’s twitter account….

Climate change is likely to be an issue brought up at this year’s Democratic debates, though coverage of the topic has been nearly non-existent in previous presidential debates.

Normally, temperatures in Miami around June’s end max out at around 90 degrees Fahrenheit, explained Brian McNoldy, a senior research associate at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) previously told Mashable that climate change is an issue "at the top of our list".

"The trend is in exactly the direction we would expect as a result of a warming planet," climate scientist Michael Mann told Mashable in February.

However, the DNC said that none of the 12 primary debates will be devoted to the issue of climate change — much to the frustration of climate change-focused candidate Governor Jay Inslee.

"This regional combination of dry weather and scorching temperatures has allowed a gigantic wildfire to blossom in central Broward County, something we tend to see happen during the dry winter months," said McNoldy.

"The warming climate does certainly play a role in setting new records," McNoldy said.
