Global News: What you need to know about the ‘heat dome’ hovering above B.C., Alberta and territories <— sounds just like heat wave in India in KSR’s Ministry for the Future (and global warming was predicted by many many other science fiction writers like John Brunner in The Sheep Look Up)
A heat dome is caused by a strong ridge of high pressure that traps warm air underneath it. Although not a term commonly used by Environment Canada scientists, the heat dome gets its name because the ridge acts like a dome, allowing the sun to crank up the heat below and create a heat wave that lasts at least a few days.
