Damn right! It's your civic duty!
People leave the car thinking the car is cool because the AC was on during the drive, but then it heats up very quickly -- shorter than the "only a moment" bullshit excuses people make -- resulting extremely hot conditions that can result in death. There was a local news story where the reporter wanted to see how long he could survive in a hot car like that (with medical personnel around to supervise). He lasted about 10 minutes, and was completely delirious and nearly collapsed by the time they hauled him out. Imagine that for a child or animal. It can get to 160 degrees in there depending on the day.
On a more morbid note: my family would take bets on how many children and pets will be left in hot cars each summer. There are different guesses for whether the victim dies or is found and survives. Last year was a big total, with 5 or so dying in the first month. Not a good thing.
