And when the temperature drops below average for this time of yr will u be showing rivers of ice but then that would mean that the planet wasn’t heating up.. Is there anything to be said for another mass? We call it “summer” Oh ffs they have normAl weather in red 😂

Propaganda as usual from RTE. Stop the scaremongering, that fire didn't start by itself! When the lovely weather is over, back to.....monkey pox/Ukraine/Covid. Just seen a speed camera parked up for 2.5 hours with the engine running...who's paying for the petrol to air conditioned ? The ones who they fine ?

When is Greta flying in on her private jet to give us a lecture on climate change? Has anyone ever been to Spain no? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Who set fire to the fields then 🔥🔥🔍🔍 Thanks RTE for stating the obvious it’s called summer time so give it a rest with the end of the world crap 🧐 Omg I better rid the supermarket shelves of bog roll and bread in preparation for this 30c armageddon

Maybe we should lockdown.. stay in our baths and await for RTE to let us know it’s safe.. The state propaganda channel peddling more fear and misery . It's a few warm days we have had them before it's called summer Omg this is terrifying 😳

Rents are at record highs — so why are private landlords fleeing the market?Smart Money: CliffTaylorIT examines why landlords are walking away from relatively safe, income earning assets even as rents are at record highs IrishTimes Maybe they know what's coming? Maybe they don't want to be socialists? Maybe they see govt interference decimating their market? Maybe they're right? Because a big bucket of good ol'crisis is on the way. IrishTimes Because the REITs are taking over courtesy of FineGael and fiannafailparty and they have been squeezing the smaller landlords out for at least a decade. Prtb is just another tax and now they are inspecting 20 year old houses and telling you to spend unnecessary money😤

That’s a lovely 86°F. Have you totally lost your minds? Enjoy it, the Winters are long enough This is a climate crisis Finally 😎 Remember the days when we celebrated summer. I’m no expert in combustion, but a few warm days cannot start a fire. Idiots with matches is how fires start. Which is nothing to do with climate change.

Get some sunscreen and you'll be fine Did RTE commit arson to get a scary climate alarmism video or was it someone else? That's fantastic news. A nice sunny day spent at the beach and all for free. You can't ask for more.Thanks rte for the good news. 💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰😎😎😎😎

Hot weather in summer, well I never Just to be clear, some prick set that fire! This has absolutely nothing to do with climate. Please tell us what to do in this unprecedented situation.
