    ^ The more I read, the more I find how important it is for the global warming community to discount the sun at ll costs. Clearly the sun plays a major role in the climate on earth and to deny this is to deny climatology itself.

    Ergo, that makes you a climate denier!


    There we have it. The very person accusing everyone of being a climate denier is one himself!

    Gosh! I'll say that again:

    Climate denier!

    the sun is not as much of a problem as compared to the GHG humans are pumping into the atmosphere

    Conclusion

    While there are natural factors that affect the Earth’s climate, the combined influence of volcanoes and changes in solar activity would have resulted in cooling rather than warming over the past 50 years.

    Why scientists think 100% of global warming is due to humans

    It’s a conspiracy!


    ________

    You should spend a little more time at NASA’s website - Further proof…….

    NASA Facts

    Global warming is the long-term heating of Earth’s surface observed since the pre-industrial period (between 1850 and 1900) due to human activities, primarily fossil fuel burning, which increases heat-trapping greenhouse gas levels in Earth’s atmosphere. This term is not interchangeable with the term "climate change."

    Since the pre-industrial period, human activities are estimated to have increased Earth’s global average temperature by about 1 degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit), a number that is currently increasing by more than 0.2 degrees Celsius (0.36 degrees Fahrenheit) per decade. The current warming trend is unequivocally the result of human activity since the 1950s and is proceeding at an unprecedented rate over millennia.

    Little more evidence from NASA

    There is unequivocal evidence that Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate. Human activity is the principal cause.

    Not the sun.

    You’re not even consistent with your nonsense.

    is the sun not much of a problem or 0% of a problem

    The heat in Dallas-Fort Worth broke at least two records Monday afternoon.

    The temperature reached 91 about 1 : 07 p.m. at DFW Airport, making it the hottest Feb. 26 on record since a 90-degree record was set 1917, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

    Unseasonably high temperatures are breaking records from the southern border to Canada, as a warm front blankets most of the U.S. east of the Rocky Mountains.

    More than 100 temperature records broke on Monday from Texas to Minnesota, with Killeen, Texas, reaching 100 degrees.

    Abilene, Texas, hit 94 degrees, followed by Dallas at 93 degrees, Oklahoma City at 88 degrees, and other notable highs including Omaha’s 80 degrees and Chicago’s 71 degrees.

    I know I have mentioned it before but the CWMS says that when she was a child (a decade ago - just dreaming, a few decades) then 30C was 'hot'. I doubt there were any thermometers in the village then. Whatever, she thinks 40C is crazy. And this is only the beginning ....

    ^ I had both Mist fans running to help Ung and Bao as they installed ceiling in pool area. Later I helped my wife's friend pick up and unload a new fridge. Was only 38.7 at her house.

    Couple that heat with crap air quality.

    • Heat wave in Southeast Asia closes schools, triggers health alerts


    The Philippines has closed schools down and warned of overloading on its power grid, as authorities across Southeast Asia issued a series of health alerts for a crushing and deadly heat wave.

    The Philippines' country's education ministry cancelled in-person classes at public schools for two days on Sunday.

    "We already have reports of high blood pressure and dizziness, and fainting for pupils and teachers in the past days," Benjo Basas, chairperson of Teachers' Dignity Coalition, a group of educators, told DWPM radio station.

    Temperatures in the Philippines are forecast to reach 37 degree Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in the next three days, with many classrooms crowded and without air conditioning.

    The country's weather agency said the heat index - the actual temperature felt by the body to include relative humidity - is expected to remain at a record 45 degrees Celsius (113° Fahrenheit), in the range which it classes as "dangerous" as conditions can trigger heat stroke from prolonged exposure.

    The heat wave is also putting pressure on power supplies on the main island of Luzon, which accounts for three-quarters of economic output, with reserves thinning after 13 power plants had shut down earlier this month, the Philippines' grid operator said in a statement.

    In Thailand, temperatures are forecast to surpass 40 degrees in Bangkok and the country's central and northern regions with the meteorological agency advising people to avoid being outdoors for extended periods.

    Temperatures soared to 44.2 degrees Celsius in the northern city of Lampang on April 22, with the meteorological department saying on Monday it expects the extreme heat will continue this week.

    In the past month, 30 people have died from heat stroke, data from Thailand's health ministry showed.

    People are seeking respite from the heat in air-conditioned shopping malls in Vietnam's business hub Ho Chi Minh City, state media reported, with the country's national weather agency warning of risks of forest fires, dehydration, and heat shock.

    Maximum temperatures measured in several parts of northern and central Vietnam ranged from 40.2 and 44.0 degree Celsius the agency said on Sunday, adding that temperatures won't subside until Wednesday.

    Vietnam's state electricity company has also urged consumers to refrain from overworking their air conditioning units, warning that electricity consumption has reached record highs in the recent days.

    Malaysia meteorological department issued hot weather warnings on Sunday for 16 areas that have recorded temperatures between 35 and 40 degrees (95 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit) for three consecutive days.

    A total of 45 cases of heat-related illnesses have been reported in the country as of April 13, the health ministry said, without specifying when it began tracking the cases. Two deaths due to heat stroke have been reported, the ministry said in a statement.

    In the neighbouring city state of Singapore, the meteorological service said the country's temperatures could soar higher in 2024 than last year, which was Singapore's fourth-warmest year since records began in 1929.

    Singapore's hottest day recorded was May 13 last year when the highest daily maximum temperature hit 37 degrees Celsius.

    Since last month some schools have relaxed rules on uniforms to allow students to wear more comfortable physical education attire amid the persistent heat.

    Meanwhile, warmer temperatures in Southeast Asia's most populated nation of Indonesia are driving a surge in cases of dengue fever, a mosquito-borne infection, with cases more than doubling to 35,000 from 15,000 a year earlier, the health ministry has said.

    Manila, Philippines – Catholic bishops in the Philippines are pitching in to seek divine relief from the extreme heatwave scorching the country, instructing their flock to recite special prayers for rain and lower temperatures.

    Rising temperatures have forced the government to shut down tens of thousands of schools over the past week, while increased demand has stressed the country’s already strained power supply.

    A widespread El Nino drought that began early this year is compounding the problem, ruining 5.9 billion pesos ($103 million) worth of farm produce so far according to the Department of Agriculture.

    The Catholic Bishops of the Philippines issued an “Oratio Imperata”, instructing parishes in the mainly Catholic nation to recite a prayer for deliverance from calamities during masses, according to the text seen by AFP on Saturday.

    “We humbly ask you to grant us relief from the extreme heat that besets your people at this time, disrupting their activities and threatening their lives and livelihood,” the prayer read.

    “Send us rain to replenish our depleting water sources, to irrigate our fields, to stave off water and power shortages and to provide water for our daily needs.”

    A record-high 38.8 degrees Celsius (101.8 degrees Fahrenheit) was recorded in the capital Manila on April 27, forcing the closure of more than 47,000 schools for two days.

    Nearly 8,000 schools remained shuttered as of Friday, the education department said, while the highest temperature in the country was recorded at 38.2C on the island of Mindoro south of the capital.

    certainly a bit toasty today. Think I'm really feeling it as I went back to drinking beer in the evenings/nighttime the last week. Today I'm just panned out baking in me brundies, no energy to do anything. Must be 40+ everyday for what, around 6 weeks straight? Never really bothered me but today is pulling the pickle.

    From the German Science community:

    The fact is: Yes, the sun is a climate factor. But the influence of their natural fluctuations in intensity on the climate has been MUCH smaller than the influence of humans for decades
    I guess you could say it can be neglected, meaning forget it.

    The storm that killed at least four people in Houston and barreled through New Orleans into northern Florida late last week has ties to a record-shattering, relentless heat wave anchored over Central America.

    Why it matters: With extreme weather events, particularly in this era of rapid climate change, seemingly disparate events thousands of miles apart can be closely connected, with one triggering or intensifying another.

    By the numbers: The formation has helped to cause already hotter-than-average ocean temperatures across the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico to increase further, raising temperatures of adjacent land areas even more in a positive feedback loop.


    • Key West, Fla., for example, has set records for hitting a heat index of nearly 115°F, while Miami saw its third-highest heat index reading on record Saturday, with all of the other historical records occurring during July and August.
    • Miami's heat index on Saturday hit 112°F, the highest on record for the month of May, crushing the previous milestone by 5°F.
    • It equaled that on Sunday, which was only the second time two back-to-back days with such high heat and humidity had occurred there (the other instance was in August of last year.)
