Last week, Milwaukee hit a record June high of 109°F. North Platte, Nebraska hit a June record of 108°F. Phoenix hit 114°F. Death Valley hit 123°F. And to boot, there were 30 active wildfires in various parts of the United States. Ethan reflects on the brutal weather entering summer 2022 in this week’s “Tip of the Iceberg.”
