...have been set all over the world during the past week

Will anything convince the Orange Fool and his Minions that this is not Fake Newa?

From the normally mild summer climes of Ireland, Scotland and Canada to the scorching Middle East, numerous locations in the Northern Hemisphere have witnessed their hottest weather ever recorded over the past week.

Large areas of heat pressure or heat domes scattered around the hemisphere led to the sweltering temperatures.

No single record, in isolation, can be attributed to global warming. But collectively, these heat records are consistent with the kind of extremes we expect to see increase in a warming world.

Let’s take a tour around the world of the recent hot-weather milestones.

They know the truth. They don't want YOU to know the truth.

Kleptocrats thrive when they keep the population ignorant.

Yes a friend in the UK just posted on Facebook reminding people to leave bowls of water out at night for hedgehogs and other little woodland animals. I love Brits!

but aargh this heat with no ac, which most homes over there don't have or normally need, is pretty uncomfortable.

The HEAT is supposed to be ON FULL BLAST around here starting Friday. We'll start "warming up" tomorrow.

Can't wait. angry villagers smiley

And as the weather warms up, we kick in for MORE electricity to keep cool locally. It's a potentially catastrophic point of failure.

sigh. Weather is not equal to climate change.
Global temperature trends rising IS = Climate change

(Yeah. trump removed lots of data, yadda yadda yadda... it's still out there from actual real scientists, not christian scientists or scientologists or whatever the Russians want us to believe.)

But when the entire globe experiences record highs at the same time, that is more than weather.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I wonder if the southern hemisphere is experiencing record lows. That would also be consistent with climate change.

Unfortunately, the general public does not have the patience to navigate the weeds of data analysis and rigorous scientific argument. And so the oligarchs in power will use isolated "dramatic" occurrences to argue against climate change. This article simply documents a dramatic occurrence that can be used to balance such arguments.

And yes, I do have mixed feelings about using anecdotes to argue about general trends, but that's the nature of current politics. We used to have panels of real scientific experts to advise the government and ground it in reality. Not so much anymore.

......there are also record 'dry' seasons where some areas don't get enough water.......and as a result prone to wildfires.......

Actual scientists are VERY careful to never make this claim. Because the other side of that assumption is the idiot Senator who brought a snowball to Congress claiming it was 'proof' that climate change was bunk. [www.slate.com]

Obviously, no single record, by itself, can be attributed to global warming.

Taken together, however, the current heat records do appear to be quite consistent with the kind of extremes we'd expect to see increase if indeed our global climate is changing for the worse…
