    Since June we (East Texas) have been running mid 90s to low 100sF (32-40C) with with hear indexes about 110F, lows of 85F (29C) at night. A high pressure dome of heat parked over the Central US bringing no rain (at least to Texas) for several weeks and high temps. Comparing F to C. I prefer the spread of F over C, but consider I grew up with F. A recent trip to Corpus Christi we saw large large fields of immature brown/dead corn.
    An alarming report is that the Oceans are turning green (more plant matter growing) due to the rise of temps, sharks are reported as dying. Another report said that El Niño usually causes a reduction of Atlantic hurricane activity, but with oceans heating up, that may change.

    I never thought I would be living in such a transitional period for the Earth. We have been warned for 40 years, yet as a species, we just blunder along until we are smacked upside the head. :oops:
     
    This is really troubling news..

    Things are beginning to change fast - faster than most would have believed.


    The Atlantic Ocean’s sensitive circulation system has become slower and less resilient, according to a new analysis of 150 years of temperature data — raising the possibility that this crucial element of the climate system could collapse within the next few decades.

    Susanne Ditlevsen, a statistician at the University of Copenhagen, then developed an advanced mathematical model to predict how much more wobbling the AMOC system can handle. The results suggest that the AMOC could collapse any time between now and 2095, and as early as 2025, the authors said.

    And Greenland glaciers might melt faster than we thought based on newly discovered evidence of the past. Current models suggest that if all the ice on Greenland melted, then sea level would rise about 23 feet.

     
    Need to publish a list of all the law makers who just a few years ago proclaimed that global warming is a hoax despite all the evidence.
    They seems to be extremely quiet now.
     
    We have more or less had rain and a LOT of it all through july. We just broke a 130 year old record and after a hot and dry june, we more than doubled the usual amount of rain in july and it is continuing

    You‘re latitude benefits you in this crisis… I think. :) Houston, Texas- Hot with a rain deficit. I’ve been praying for a tropical storm or two,..
     
    The farmers dont agree with you. The grain harvest is not going to be good this year and if it keeps on like this it is going to be a very subpar year. It all depends on wheter we get some sun in August. But yes it does benefit us in some ways after two very dry years

    We've had a really wet year in Colorado, which, following a few years of drought, was welcome. But the concern is that all the rain is making grasses and weeds grow really fast and tall, so that when the rain stops and the vegetation all dries out it turns to wildfire kindling.

    Yes, that is what they fear will happen in northern CA as well.

    I'd rather keep track of those states where those lawmakers are from and make sure that if they request any aid from the fed due to disasters caused by global warming...say a massive 300 year flood that happens somewhere that it hasn't flooded before.....the response is "we don't spend federal money on hoaxes."
     
    When House Speaker Kevin McCarthy toured a natural gas drilling site in Ohio in June, the California Republican vowed to boost U.S. production of oil and natural gas, major contributors to climate change.

    “God has blessed America with resources,” McCarthy said. “If we have the ability to produce those resources, America will be stronger and the world will be safer.”


    Smoke from Canadian wildfires hung in the air as McCarthy spoke. Asked about his plans to prevent further fires and other disasters fueled by climate change, the speaker suggested a strategy popular among Republicans: Plant a trillion trees.

    The plan has some prominent backers. President Donald Trump announced in 2020 that the United States would join a global initiative to plant a trillion trees, despite his antagonism toward climate science.

    The chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee has introduced legislation to plant a trillion trees as “a comprehensive, practical solution to the climate issues we’re facing today.”


    But in recent years, climate scientists have grown more skeptical about relying on tree-planting programs. They have warned that heat waves, famines and infectious diseases could claim millions of additional lives by the end of this century unless humanity swiftly phases out the burning of oil, gas and coal.


    Now, new research finds that planting a trillion trees would have a minimal effect on halting global warming, partly because of the long lag time for trees to reach maturity and absorb large amounts of carbon.

    The analysis by John Sterman, a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management, and Andrew P. Jones, executive director of the nonprofit Climate Interactive, found that planting a trillion trees would prevent only 0.15 degrees Celsius (0.27 Fahrenheit) of warming by 2100…….

    Question: "How do you plan on fighting wildfires?"

    Answer: "With wildfires, that's why I'll be planting a trillion trees."

    As I imagine all the stored carbon mass wildfires are releasing into the atmosphere. :oops:

    Never mind that wild fires tend to be raging now. Trees vs fires, I bet on the fires. :(
