Google Adds Extreme Heat Warnings and Other Climate Tools


It’s no secret: the world is heating up. Inevitably, people are starting to take notice. More people are searching for information on extreme heat than ever before, according to Google—and the company is hoping to make those search results clearer.

With a new search feature, Google says it wants to help its users stay cool (and safe) during increasingly common and intense heat waves. The tech giant is adding extreme heat alerts to its search results, as announced in a Wednesday blogpost. The feature will roll out over the course of the next few months in the U.S. and parts of Europe, a company spokesperson told Gizmodo in an email.
