Following 2016 and 2017, 2018 is likely going to set another heat record in
many parts of the world. Already, the first six months have set
high-temperature records for the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) reported yesterday (July 9).

The extreme weather in the US, however, pales in comparison to the
abnormalities along the Arctic coast. Last week, Nick Humphrey, a
meteorologist living in Nebraska, wrote on his blog that temperatures rose to
90°F (32°C) in northern Siberia—some 40°F warmer than average for this time of
year.

Other parts of the extreme north are hot, too—cities in Scotland and Northern
Ireland are also hitting records of almost 90°F, the Washington Post reports.
In Quebec, Canada, excessive heat reaching similar temperatures killed 70
people last week, and thousands were left without electricity due to
overheating power wires.

“It is absolutely incredible and really one of the most intense heat events
I’ve ever seen for so far north,” Humphrey writes.

Yeah.. mid 90's F in Quebec..... Old people living alone.. haven't been taught how to handle the heat.. suffering from age related deterioration of cognitive functioning.

Don't know enough to drink more water.. maybe with a touch of salt...

You're going to blame the temperature in the 90's....... when it was actually ignorance of how to handle the temperature...

It wasn't the temperature that killed them you idiot..... it was their failure to compensate for the temperature..

Kind of like going outside in your shorts for many hours when it is 20 degree below freezing... what do you expect to happen ? ?

I'm 66 and I've been in the tropics with several days of.... get this.... 104 F and even touching 105 F one day.... and I was having a great time outside...

I've spent many many weeks in temps averaging in the mid 90's F. I didn't drop dead.... and neither were the people in the city of Siem Reap or in the villages dropping dead...

You're going to have to try a different alarming scare tactic.....

I just state the facts. Mid 90's F. temperature does not kill people who properly compensate for the temperature.

Do you deny that ? ? So you're a deniar now ? ?

Like I said.... I've been in southeast Asia during the hottest time of the year... Temps in the 104 - 105 F range. And humid.....

I'm 66 years old.... I didn't drop dead..... none of the thousands of people around me dopped dead.. (..it was Songkan time..) ...

We were all partying outside in those temperature for three days of Songkran.... And mostly outdoors in the weeks before Songkran and for weeks after....

So tell me... why didn't we all drop dead ? ? And the outside temps were about 10 Degrees F Hotter than the mid 90's F in Quebec..

What's your anwer you socialist Warming alarmist moron... ? ?

It might be difficult for you... "Unum" the Liar..... but for just once... TRY TO THINK.. ! ! !

If thinking gives you a headache ... take a couple Tylenol 3 .

Okay numbnuts... here' one for you... "In Quebec, Canada, excessive heat reaching similar temperatures killed 70 people last week,"

It wasn't the temps that killed people... it was failure to replace bodily fluids and electrolytes..

Like I said.... I've enjoyed myself with thousands of other people in temps in the 104 - 105 F range. And humid.....

I'm 66 years old.... I didn't drop dead..... none of the thousands of people around me dopped dead.

How come we didn't fall dead with temps 10 degrees F warmer than in Quebec ? ?

Answer the question........ Hmmm..maybe you have no answer,.... right ?

Little shit blames the victims.
Their own ignorance killed them,... not the temperature.

If you drive through an interection when you have a red light.... and a transport truck that has the green light hits you and you wake up in the hospital.... are you going to blame the transport truck ? ?

Answer the question..... I bet you don't have an answer for this one either....

Not interested in some dimwit's brainless personal opinion. Where I live the
daytime temperature frequently reaches 100F or more in the shade every
day. A/C is in every building here, but not usually required in Montreal prior
to human-induced global warming. "20 degrees higher than normal".

"Montreal's morgue had become overcrowded and that it had been sending bodies
to a funeral home for storage during the heatwave.

Montreal's public health office said most of those who died during the extreme
temperatures were aged over 60 and suffering from chronic illnesses"

There are just a few days of relatively warm weather per year and usually
it is far from life-threatening.

https://www.climatestotravel.com/climate/canada/montreal

"There can be periods in which the weather is hot and humid, with lows around
20/22 °C (68/72 °F) and highs around 32/33 °C (90/91 °F), which typically only
last a few days"

Meanwhile the unusually hot weather has affected opinion of AGW.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/jul/11/heatwave-climate-change-americans-survey

The warm temperatures that have scorched much of the US appear to be
influencing Americans’ acceptance of climate science, with a new poll finding
a record level of public confidence that the world is warming due to human
activity.

A long-running survey of American attitudes to climate change has found that
73% of people now think there is solid evidence of global warming. A further
60% believe that this warming is due, at least in some part, to human
influences.

Both of these findings are record highs in a twice-yearly survey that has been
conducted by the University of Michigan and Muhlenberg College since 2008. The
latest poll was conducted during May, which was hotter than any May recorded
in the contiguous US in 124 years of record keeping, according to the National
Ocean and Atmospheric Administration, eclipsing the 1930s during the Dust Bowl
era.

The hot temperatures have persisted in much of the country since the May
survey, with Los Angeles hitting a monthly overnight record of 79F (26.1C) on
7 July. Chino, near Los Angeles, saw a record temperature of 120F (48.9C),
while Death Valley in California reached 125.6F (52C) on 8 July.

About 80 million Americans have been placed under heat warnings in recent
weeks, with cities such as Denver, Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyoming, both
experiencing record temperatures.

Complications of heat exhaustion include nausea, vomiting, dehydration and

Rise of UK electric vehicles sees National Grid double its 2040 forecast
As many as 36m electric vehicles (EVs) could be on the UK's roads by
2040, according to new scenarios published today by the National

ago. Smart charging and vehicle-to-grid technology also means EVs will
be able to help smooth electricity usage throughout the day, National
Grid says. -- Simon Evans, Carbon Brief

Eradicating rats from tropical islands could protect coral reefs from

Eradicating rats from islands neighbouring tropical reefs could help

knock on effect on the birds they prey on, which in turn provide a
potent natural fertiliser in the form of their droppings, which
benefit underwater coral gardens. "This process is the most clear-cut
example we have of a way that you could effectively enhance the
functioning of a coral reef," said Dr Aaron MacNeil, a fisheries
ecologist at Dalhousie University, who contributed to the
research. "There is no example that is as clear cut and effective in
enhancing the functioning of coral reefs in the face of climate
change." The BBC also covers the story, quoting another of the
researchers, Prof Nick Graham from Lancaster University: "Coral reef
systems are at crisis point because of climate change. And we're
desperately trying to find ways to enhance the resilience of coral
reefs and allow them to cope with climate change. This is one of the
clearest examples so far, where eradicating rats will lead to
increased numbers of seabirds and this will bolster the coral reef."
Researchers not involved in the research, writing in the Conversation,
said this story of rats and reefs underlines how far-reaching ongoing
changes in the Earth-system are now likely to be. "It is clear...that
the Earth system is now on a new trajectory, of the Anthropocene,
following the relative stability of the Holocene," they write.

Britons told to stop using tap water for gardening and car washes
The head of official water watchdog Ofwat, Rachel Fletcher, has urged
families to stop using tap water for gardening and washing cars, the
Daily Mail reports. Fletcher warned that climate change and a growing
population posed a threat to water supplies. She said families should
switch to using recycled water from baths and showers and tanks that
capture rainfall. "The idea of using treated drinking quality water to
water our gardens and wash our cars in the 21st century just doesn't
seem appropriate," said Fletcher. "As a regulator, it is something we
will push the companies to innovate on." Sir James Bevan, head of the
Environment Agency, also spoke to the commons environment committee,
telling them that climate change threatened future water supplies and
that water leakage reduction targets set for big suppliers need to be
much tougher. The Sun also covers Fletcher's comments.

Pss. Cartoony's over-qualified denials.
The drongo underlines mid 90s F can kill people if they can not
"properly compensate for the temperature".
Typical high-lat whiteman doesn't seem to have ever HEARD of humidity.
I guess you must have missed it...... try again....

"Okay numbnuts... here' one for you... "In Quebec, Canada, excessive heat reaching similar >temperatures killed 70 people last week,"
It wasn't the temps that killed people... it was failure to replace bodily fluids and electrolytes..
Like I said.... I've enjoyed myself with thousands of other people in temps in the 104 - 105 F range. >And humid..... "

It wasn't the temperature that killed them you idiot..... it was their failure to compensate for the temperature..
Hateful little shit blames the victims.
Nah..... I just prefer facts and truth..... instead of the deceptive lying propaganda that you seem to prefer .
Hateboy can't point out any specific lie. Little shit blames the victims.
I just state the facts. Mid 90's F. temperature does not kill people who properly compensate for the temperature.
Hateboy couldn't point out any specific lie.

You can drink as much water as you can hold and still get heatstroke.

You're going to have to try a different alarming scare tactic.....
... or maybe he could get a life and stop trying to scare people.
