Climate change causes extreme heat waves

"The heat wave that left more than 100 million people sweating across the eastern U.S. in June 2024 hit so fast and was so extreme that forecasters warned a flash drought could follow across wide parts of the region... Many regions under heat dome quickly developed abnormally dry conditions." - The Conversation

"Major oil companies report robust earnings and large payouts... ExxonMobil and Chevron just reported record profits for fiscal year 2023, raking in their highest earnings in a decade by pumping out fossil fuels at breakneck speed" - TCD

"Oil and gas industry spent $124.4 million on federal lobbying amid record profits..." - Open Secrets
