noteven,

Look at the yearly average temperatures. The hottest five years since records have been kept are 2015 to 2020.

The reflectivity of the Earth is 50% less than it was in 2005. Meanwhile, just like a frog in a pot of water that is being warmed, mankind does just about nothing to mitigate these trends.


There are just way too many people that think global warming is farce. Unfortunately my grandkids are going to feel the full brunt of this farce.

x2. Fortunately, car makers and the electric utility industry take it quite seriously.

I was stunned to see the vast expanse of solar south of Boulder City NV. Good thing, as Lake Mead isn't looking too good. I just hope it's not too late to make much of an impact on this. We can try.

And remember -

If the high temp sets a "record" it is Climate Change ring the Alarms, virtue signal, pass laws, tax money...

If the temperature is a record low "you don't understand, that is weather which is not climate". Smarten up.


Let's explore this a little bit. Here are are the number of high and low records set in the US over the last 60 years. Do you notice anything here?

And if you are wondering why Canada may be about to set some records, consider what the average temperature of Canada has been trending and what impact that may have on the extremes:

I did not say I do not believe the climate changes. There is plenty of evidence of that.

I look at reasonable evidence from both sides.

I ignore “alarmist” and politician statements for what they are which is propaganda.

How did people handle climate change in the ancient times? Human intellect and reason, mobility innovation and adaptability. Probably not by propaganda and tax and spend.

46C thats not unusaly for Kamloops


You have to distinguish between the temp that guys get from their sundeck thermometers and an 'Official Temp'. Kamloops has never been at 46C as the all time high for all of Canada is 45C.
To get an unofficial accurate temp, you have to have an 'approved' thermometer in the correct white painted ventilated shelter, at the correct height above the ground, which has to be typical natural vegetation. In addition, there is a complex formula on on how high and distant nearby objects can be, trees buildings etc.
You can never make a temp lower, but many things can make the temp higher.


Sometimes I sit and think deep thoughts. other times, I just sit!

The prediction for tomorrow (Monday) is 110F in Seattle. That’s an all-time record. Most folks in W. Washington have no air conditioning. Until now it was never needed.

I have three different ones, none are in the sun or close to a place that will radiate heat. the difference is that at the airport they are after the convergance of the north and south thompson rivers and the wind usaly funnels down the north and to them. I am more east on the south river and the sun bakes the river vally all day so we are a micro climate. when kamloops gets rain we normaly don't . there are pockets all along tha valley that are like this. for example I can grow peaches at my house where you would get winter kill at the airport.

Climate discussion Nexus and CO2 Science are a couple of sources for non alarmist info and history. Much of it not based on computer modelling.

Interesting.

With all the research and resources done by thousands of scientists at NASA, NOAA, the National Academy of Science, the World Meteorological Organization and every other scientific research organizations, it is actually some former Peabody Coal employees, with a blog that was funded by Peabody Coal that are providing the real accurate (non alarmist) information? That seems a little hard to believe.
