Ejemplo curioso de la cultura tejana, supuestamente chicana: “Mexicans and Cappin’". La última palabra es una jerga que podría decir lanzando balas o insultando. Del de 2002, los tres raperos son Slinkey, Pranksta y Big Deuce. Dan pocas señas de . No usan casi ninguna palabra española (y claro que nada indígena fuera del título), aunque “varrio,” “locs” y “loced” [loc'ed] aparecen en los nombres de canciones.

Most of the metropolitan area's 21 million residents — accustomed to more temperate weather — lack air conditioning. Earlier this month, the capital was one of at least 10 cities in Mexico that registered their hottest day on record.

What Scotsman was caught up in a civil war before the age of twenty? Wrote a book that became the inspiration for an Oscar-winning film? Met a runaway teenager in Paris and married her against the wishes of his family? Lost his ranch to raiding Apaches?

Buckle up – it’s going to be a long, wild 🧵 …

They say the haze in the city is Sahara desert sand, I think it is pollution, but whatever, maybe it is a metaphor for the visibility we all have, it is never clear.

Some days on a roadtrip you pass through villages that you think: God maybe I could live here.
But it is always merely a stop during the journey, sometimes for a drink, or some food, or gasoline.

Sometimes just for the night.

I don’t think any of us really understand how quickly collapse can happen:

> About 85% of the country expected to see highs of at least 40°C
> Almost 40% of the country’s dams below 20%
> 40% are between 20 and 50%.
> Mexico City (Population 22.51 million) forced to reduce water supply as reservoirs that feed city dry up.
> Stores running out of mineral water.

This is our doing because we refuse to stop burning fossil fuels.

Fossil CO2 emissions are projected to rise by +0.5% in 2024.

+1.63ºC 12-month running mean above preindustrial in Berkeley Earth and ERA5 datasets.

1.5ºC imminent.

" ’s drought, heatwave and shortages have gotten so bad that even police blocked traffic in protest Wednesday.

The officers stood blocking six lanes of traffic, saying their barracks hadn’t had water for a week, and that the bathrooms were unusable."
