Technically correct...
8 of the last 10 years have been the hottest since records have been kept
and teh general trend for the last 30 years is up

Bill Nye has a standing bet for $50k with anybody willing to bet against 2019 being the hottest on record

it's Global Warming
but it doesn't manifest itself as such at every location on earth
It sure as hell does in Bangkok

Fucjking hotter than Baghdad in 2004

CA was supposed to be in a perpetual drought...
The Sierra Nevada snowpack is 162 percent of average statewide, more than triple what the number was at the same time last year.
In many areas of the Sierra, the amount of snow is twice as much as is normal for this time of year.
Statewide snow water equivalent has nearly tripled since February 1.
More than 30 atmospheric rivers — storms pulling columns of moisture from the tropics — have helped build up the massive snowpack.
If the snowpack melted all at once it would cover the Sierra in nearly 4 feet of water, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
This year's snowpack is different from the massive one from two years ago. Twenty percent of the snow making up the snowpack was below 8,000 feet in 2017. This year, 40 percent is below 8,000 feet. That's because the storms in 2017 were warmer and didn't deliver as much lower-elevation snowfall, while in 2019 a series of cold systems from the north dropped snow levels. Also, this year's snowpack has a higher snow-water equivalent.
The snow is well distributed across the mountain range, with the two-thirds at about 165 percent of average and the southern areas at 153 percent of average.

The ski lifts in NorCal will be open well into July. The only reason this state has "droughts" is because the envirowakos don't allow reservoirs to be built...

...that's also why I ignore all "drought" water restrictions. :coffee:

Same in San Antonio. While it's been hot, it hasn't been 105-106 like it has in years' past. This year it's hit 100 a couple days, but that's it.

Last time I was there I walked from our old house to Hope Valley Elementary School
Which took about 3 minutes... as a child I remembering it being a grueling 40 mile hike

it's like 600 yards...

Ice shelves that have already disintegrated on the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula may have been predisposed to collapsing because they were thinning for the past 300 years.

An analysis of fossils suggests the ice shelves in the region have been thinning since around 1700, leaving those such as Larsen B vulnerable to their recent break-ups as human-caused climate change took hold.
https://www.cnet.com/news/increase-in-a ... udy-finds/
Researchers from the University of Chicago have simulated a climate change chain reaction that starts with an increase in Antarctic sea ice and ends with an ice age. In a study this month, researchers presented a new model detailing how increased sea ice could change the ocean's circulation, and block the ocean from exchanging carbon dioxide with the atmosphere. More carbon dioxide in the ocean and less in the air would lead to a reverse greenhouse effect.
https://scitechdaily.com/sea-level-rise ... sumptions/
Antarctica’s ice sheet spans close to twice the area of the contiguous United States, and its land boundary is buttressed by massive, floating ice shelves extending hundreds of miles out over the frigid waters of the Southern Ocean. When these ice shelves collapse into the ocean, they expose towering cliffs of ice along Antarctica’s edge.

Scientists have assumed that ice cliffs taller than 90 meters (about the height of the Statue of Liberty) would rapidly collapse under their own weight, contributing to more than 6 feet of sea-level rise by the end of the century — enough to completely flood Boston and other coastal cities. But now MIT researchers have found that this particular prediction may be overestimated.
