Global Warming? Geoengineering gone mad? Natural cycles of Mother Earth or something bigger?

Japan continues to swelter, as record temperatures hit much of the Northern Hemisphere, notably the UK

Japan Is the Latest Country to Break a Heat Record

Tokyo also set an all-time record for the city, reaching 40.8 degrees Celsius (105.4 degrees Fahrenheit).
But the heat has hardly been confined to the metro area.

At least 77 have died from heat-related illness since July 9, including 11 people who died on Saturday alone,…
