The map above, based on a new analysis from the Climate Impact Lab, shows how 95-degree days (35 degrees Celsius) are expected to multiply this century if countries take moderate climate action

Earl Ourada has been gathering weather data from his ranch northwest of Boise for almost 60 years. His daily readings help meteorologists at the National Weather confirm their forecasts. High temperatures have increased snowmelt from the mountains, and the Boise River is slowly seeping over its banks in places like 46th Street near the closed Greenbelt

EPA science advisors had advocated for a standard between 60 and 70 parts per billion, preferring the lower end of that spectrum
