Years follow but are not necessarily similar. I wouldn't be so pessimistic.\n\nOf course, it's very likely that we will eventually have other summers as bad and possibly worse. We might be gone then.\n\nBut I am just upset about the future of my great grandchildren. I have four.\n\n\nI hope I'm wrong but seems we're just facing the beginnings of climate change. Glad I don't have children.
