Something similar happened this Thursday, when two British drivers interviewed a climate expert.
One of them, Bev Turnerdismissed the words of John Hammonda BBC climate expert, who claimed that the heat wave could take the lives of thousands of people.
“Now we are enjoying ourselves, but when we reach 40 degrees Celsius I think there will be hundreds, if not thousands, of deaths. We all love warm weather, but this is going to be potentially lethal weather. It will be brief, but brutal,” Hammond said.
After mentioning this, the expert was interrupted by Bev Turnerwho had previously said that everyone should be happy with the weather.
“I wonder what happened to meteorologists to turn them all into doomsayers and harbingers of destruction. In all broadcasts, whenever someone talks about the weather, I hear that there will be hundreds of deaths, but haven’t we always had warm weather?
