Climate Change

It has been near or over 100F since the beginning of July.

Here in Texas we have a standard summer greeting, “Hot enough for ya?”

Well here’s a couple summer theme songs.

    This from “Climate Progress” — please follow link to original:

    Climate experts agree: Global warming caused unprecedented Russian heat wave
    Carver: “Without contributions from anthropogenic climate change, I don’t think this event would have reached such extremes or even happened at all.”
    August 14, 2010

    The World Meteorological Organization says this “unprecedented sequence of extreme weather events … matches IPCC projections of more frequent and more intense extreme weather events due to global warming.” NASA says July 2010 is “What Global Warming Looks Like.”

    Top climate scientists — Peter Stott, head of climate monitoring and attribution at UK’s Met Office and Kevin Trenberth, head of climate analysis at the National Center for Atmospheric Research — have been making the link between the record-smashing extreme weather and human caused global warming (see here)

    In this cross-post, Wonk Room’s Brad Johnson has more on what scientists are saying, including Meteorologist Rob Carver, the Research and Development Scientist for Weather Underground.

    Oh, by the way, currently it is 101.1 F. I think this is the 17 or 18th day of over 100 degrees – consecutively. We had more before, but there was a break of days where it was only 96 -98 degrees.

    After a number of over 100 degree days, a 97 day is actually cooler. The current humidity is 35%, with a dew point of 70 degrees F.

    At least we do not have too many days of 90 degrees with 90% humidity — that is really unbearable.
