This particular heat wave is indisputably man made.
Above is a nice little find—Bruce Beaver’s The Hot Summer, for the Australian publisher Horwitz, 1963. Beaver made his fame as a poet, winning several prizes for his work, but here he’s in sleaze mode, writing about sex, love, and taboos in Mundulla, New South Wales. The cover art is worn, but still nice. Horwitz had a habit of not crediting artists, so the creator of this is unknown.
