1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about the recent heat wave in the United States?
2* Has this summer in your area been hotter than recent summers, not as hot as recent summers or about the same?
3* Is the media paying too much attention to the heat wave, too little attention to the heat wave or is the media coverage about right?
4* When it comes to health and safety risks, what is worse…when the weather gets too hot or when the weather gets too cold?
