Thanks the coal-burning, toxin-spewing China, Tokyo is now DEADLY as well as waaaay to hot —Today’s high will be 34 degrees C (93.2℉).

The weird thing is:
•When I visited Tokyo as young boy for the 1964 Olympics, the air quality was about as bad as Los Angeles at the time.
•Later, when I shipwrecked on the shores of mid-1980s “Bubble Japan*” I was pleasantly surprised to find Tokyo air quality to be superior to many US cities like LA, Chicago, Denver, etc.
•Now, Tokyo has returned a being a toxic ‘n’ hot hellhole thanks to China, grrr.
