Murderous heatwave

The BBC reports the passing of a 23-year-old Australian killed by the recent record heatwave, which was so hot not even air-conditioning could keep the unfortunate victim from baking to death. This story made the news simply because the dear departed was the world's oldest sheep, which at twice the average age of a sheep was due to depart soon anyway.

Update: Global warming causes polar bear deaths.
