On 6 September 2021 The New York Times reported:
In early summer, a day laborer laying irrigation lines at a plant nursery just south of Portland, Oregon, collapsed to the ground and died. The official cause of death was declared 'heat related.' It was 104 degrees out -- several days into a brutal heat wave whose like has become increasingly commonplace in many parts of the country. Drought, megafires, and heat waves are descending on the Pacific Northwest as the effects of climate change alter the landscape. They have forced farm owners, workers in the fields, and state regulators to navigate newly extreme conditions.
