WATCH: Health Ministry Issues Heat Advisory For Schools


Saint Lucia’s Ministry of Health has issued a heat advisory for schools, outlining steps parents, guardians, and learning institution staff could take to protect students from the detrimental effects of the current hot weather.

Community Paediatrician, Dr. Brittney Dalson, advised vigilant for signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion in a statement on the Ministry’s behalf.

The complete statement appears below:

  1. @The Recollector: I listened to the Ministry of Health’s heat advisory several times, and couldn’t find anything regarding climate change. All I heard was an appropriate advisory for the hours of 10:00AM to 02:00PM, daily. Sounds like the same thing my parents & teachers cautioned about, when I was in primary school!

    I recollect, very clearly, in Standard III, that we learnt that the sun was hottest in St. Lucia during that time of the day, because of St. Lucia’s latitude (14° 00′ 0.00″ N), on 2 specific dates when the noon-day sun was directly overhead: May 13th & July 29th, every year. These are the 2 days of the equinox when the sun appears to rise due east & set due west. We then had to calculate that the hottest days of the year in St. Lucia, were from April 5th to September 5th: the period of time in the year when the days of the equinox occurs 76 days before & after the June solstice.

    I am very sorry that these facts are absent from your recollection. You may need to flush out the bad data you’ve stored in your brain, and replace it with solid facts, so that your commentary does not make you look foolish!

    Also, as an adult, I learnt about 2 opposing, naturally occurring phenomena which affect weather in our area: El Niño & La Niña. You can read about them here:
    What are El Niño and La Niña?

  2. @THe Recollector. People are denying climate alarmism. The earth’s climate has been changing for 4,540,000,000 years. Temperature has fluctuated immensely in that time. and we’ve gone from ice age to warm periods. The climate alarmist are using satellite temperature data from 1980s and thermometer readings from the 1880s to predict climate. That ‘s 140 years of data to predict something 4,540,000,000 years old. Carbon dioxide is plant food. The building blocks the food chain. Make that make sense.
