"The word that Mrs.Bronson is unable to put into the hot, still, sodden air is "doomed" because the people you've just seen have been handed a death sentence.
One month ago, the Earth suddenly changed its elliptical orbit, and in doing so began to follow a path which gradually, moment by moment, day by day, took it closer to the Sun.
And all of man's little devices to stir up the air are now no longer luxuries.
They happen to be pitiful and panicky keys to survival.
The time is five minutes to 12, midnight.
There is no more darkness.
The place is (New York City) *Los Angeles, and this is the eve of the end because even at midnight, it's high noon, the hottest day in history, and you're about to spend it in (The Twilight Zone) *Ms. Barbers.
The poles of fear, the extremes of how the Earth might conceivably be doomed. Minor exercise in the care and feeding of a nightmare, respectfully submitted by all the thermometer-watchers in (The Twilight Zone) *Ms. Barbers."
