WOW. It’s so hot in Oklahoma that the streetlights are melting.
Today could be the hottest day in Oklahoma City history, 114 degrees.
Meanwhile, a senator from Oklahoma, James Inhofe (R), is a major climate denier.

Correction: The lamp was standing pretty close to a recent fire, so it’s likely they didn’t melt from the heat. Here’s what the photographer said:
“Being the person that actually took this photo, I’d say that this was due to a fire semi-close by coupled with the unbelievable heat we are experiencing. Still an amazing photo and not fake as many are saying on here. Enjoy!”
All that said, it’s still very hot.
