Dear Friend,

This month, Democracy Now! turns 25—that’s 25 years of bringing you the voices and stories you won’t hear in the corporate media. Democracy Now! has always refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. Nothing is more important to us than telling you the truth. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please make your contribution of $25 or more in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love. Wearing two is even better.
-Amy Goodman

“Dangerous” Heat Wave to Bring Record Temperatures to Parts of U.S.

HeadlineJun 29, 2018

In climate news, the central and eastern United States are bracing for what forecasters are calling a “dangerous and oppressive heat wave” this weekend that will include possible record high temperatures, with a heat index in Chicago that could reach 115 degrees on Saturday.

In China, a heat wave continued to bake Shanghai, Beijing and other northern cities, forcing the country to speed imports of liquefied natural gas to meet rising energy demand for air conditioners. Meanwhile, parts of Great Britain recorded their hottest temperatures ever measured in June on Thursday. In Scotland, the roof of the Glasgow Science Centre began oozing tar as parts of the structure melted in the unprecedented heat.
