For god's sake stop this

I don't understand why people leave their children and animals in hot cars. It's ignorant and dangerous.

This story out of Mineola highlights that people STILL do this. Think about how hot cars are when you get into them on a hot or even a warm day. As the Nassau County police investigator says, "cracking a window on a 90-degree day doesn't do much."

This guy says it was an accident. In this case in 2009, it was deemed an accident, but still inexcusable. 

Here's a video I saw from Weatherbug Meteorologist Jacob Wycoff on the Washington Post earlier this summer. It is compelling and illustrates how dangerous it can be, even, as he points out, on a day that is not particularly hot.
