Dive In

 

This combines the most extreme intensity with the most extreme length with an incredibly huge area all at the same time…There is nothing in world climatic history which is even minimally comparable to what is happening in China.

That’s what scientists are saying about the heatwave sweeping across China for the past 72 days—and shows no signs of cooling down. Hundreds of places have reported temperatures of more than 40°C (104°F), and many records have been broken across cities. The highest temperature recorded: 45°C on August 18.

 

Good advice needed! We recently launched a crowd-sourced version of I Recommend—because everyone needs advice when they have stuff to buy.

Pretty please, help your fellow splainer subscribers by recommending your tried-and-tested faves. Fill out a handy form here.

The TLDR: Gautam Adani may soon own India’s remaining independent TV channel—just 8 years after his rival Mukesh Ambani took control of the other television empire, Network 18. The real villain here is the crippling amounts of debt run up by the owners. Sooner or later, you gotta pay the piper.
