Hot Enough For Ya?

26 Feb

   ImageIt’s been a cold, snowy winter here in the Northeast United States… so to a lot of folks that means that global warming was just a hoax…unless of course you live just about anywhere else on the planet! Sometimes we all do need to look at the “Big Picture”.

Here’s the latest data from the National Climate Data Center. Personally, I can’t wait for Spring and the warmer temperatures but maybe I should be careful about what I wish for…

What’s the weather been like where you are?

    It has been a cooler winter than average here in Austin, but last year was the third hottest on record (the hottest was a few years ago) and we’re still in a severe drought. It’s scary, seeing all the pinks and reds on that map.

    Today I am in California where climate change is not in doubt. Not at all.

    Here is nearby Folsom Lake in summer, 2011, and last month: http://media.npr.org/assets/img/2014/02/25/california_lake_wide-aa5d86de3f8f2684aae96b6fbc7f9c296766b25d-s5-c85.jpg. I’m guessing that even though the text is hard to read, you can tell them apart

    I live in North Cyprus where we have had an exceptionally mild winter, very unusual, mainly because the lousy weather has been trapped further north, due to changing weather patterns. As for climate change – we returned to the UK in 1994 and even then we could see the climate changing, even more in 2002. I also lived in Australia until 2012 and the climate change was clear to see, even more so last year – intense heatwaves, bushfires. Perth, which used to have five or six days over 40C now has regular week- or fortnight-long heatwaves over 40C practically every day, so does Adelaide. And Victoria and NSW have had monster bushfires this last summer.Whoever claims climate change isn’t happening is running around like a headless chook. The trouble is, it’s no good sticking your head in the sand due to fear, action needs to be taken now by those with courage, foresight and determination.

    One day last month is was 65 degrees here on the west coast of Canada. I was able to do a roof job. We have had a very dry winter, unusual for the pacific rain forest. Then of course the temp. dropped to well below freezing, and we had busted pipes. By mid Feb. the ski hills got some snow, and finally they opened. I see floods coming.

    It’s the new norm, I’m sad to say. Quick – lets burn up some more fossil fuels, before it’s too late.

    I’m newly transplanted to the Montana mountains, but from what I gather the winter has thus far been slightly warmer than usual and dryer than usual, though the coming week looks to be typical.

    I’m a recent returnee to Michigan (from California). We left a three year drought to arrive to the coldest and snowiest year in three decades. I don’t mind, it’s like the winters of my youth. I am a little concerned about summer, though…..

    What I tell everyone that likes to point out that its been “sooooooo cold” this winter that every scientist not paid off by exxon must be wrong is: climate change means more severe weather events more often. Hot or cold. Severe enough for ya?

    Bone chillingly cold in our part of the world but our summers are just as extreme…extreme weather swings is certainly what climate change is all about. How will we explain to our grandchildren why the world we’re leaving them is such a mess?

    Had to come back in the archives for a post to read – this seemed appropriate – as we are having one heck of a HOT, HOT summer already here in South Florida!
