London is hotter than Abuja- who'da thunk it

Just realized, looking at the BBC website that it's 32 degrees here and only 29 degrees in Abuja today......but as my colleague pointed out, the difference is that in Nigeria it's normal and expected and so you're kind of geared up for it. Here, there's allegedly power outtages and computers freezing and roads allegedly melting....and there are predictions that the temperature may even reach 37 degrees this week. Now if that isn't global warming, tell me what is....

Wow... 32 C is hot but not obscenely so. That just bolsters my theory that there's a big different between urban heat and rural heat because of the way concrete and steel hold it in.
