    Humans ‘never experienced a world so hot in modern history,’ scientists say

    July is on track to become the world’s hottest month on record — with some scientists saying the planet may be experiencing its warmest period in about 120,000 years.

    The finding, announced by the World Meteorological Organization and the EU’s Copernicus Climate Change Service on Thursday, comes as G20 climate ministers travel to India for talks on how to curb planet-warming emissions.

    ^ where's that? Christchurch?

    Well it is winter for NZ, though I still receive the cold complaints from people there - Christchurch friends freezing, nephew Masterton -3C, even Auckland brother in Mission Bay (Misery Bay today, he has a hot water bottle!) at 4C which is about as cold as Auckland ever gets.
    I was packing up in Wellington to come back here this time last year after a 6mth contract there; what a miserable place that is year-round, not on my 'visit again' list.

    Meanwhile, coastal Chanthaburi today a nice mild 30C at 9am, realfeel 37, little change during the day a high of 31C forecast from 11am. Not complaining; prefer the heat, seems rain season has missed us, an August drought.

    Ed Hawkins - I've seen this graphic a lot, but it is still surprising every time it gets updated.

    The global ocean surface is currently far outside the range of previous years. https://twitter.com/ed_hawkins/statu...87532047880613

    Scott Duncan - Brutal heat for this late in the year.

    France has provisionally beaten its national August record with +44.4 (111.9F) C in Salindres. Hundreds and hundreds of heat records are tumbling in Europe right now. https://twitter.com/ScottDuncanWX/st...03399515545699



    Heat records broken across France




    Dozens of towns recorded temperatures of over 42C yesterday (August 22), as France’s heatwave entered its peak.

    A number of places also saw their record temperature smashed by measurements taken yesterday, including in Puy-Saint-Martin (Drme), where the mercury hit 43.5C – the hottest temperature recorded across the country.

    Heat wave cooks central and eastern US on Labor Day

    A wave of extreme heat is blistering throughout the eastern and central parts of the United States on Labor Day.

    The Washington Post reported on Monday that locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin have set temperature records over the holiday weekend, with several cities recording temperatures hotter than 100 degrees.

    Duluth, Minn., reached a record temperature of 97 degrees Sunday, beating out the previous record by eight degrees and setting a monthly high.

    The eastern part of the country also experienced high temperatures, as Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) set temperature records Sunday.

    Dulles, which reached 99 degrees Sunday, also tied a monthly record high.

    The National Weather Service’s Baltimore-Washington account on X, formerly known as Twitter, posted an advisory that recommended residents who may be vulnerable during the string of high temperatures to take extra precautions.

    “If you are spending time outdoors this Labor Day, remember to practice heat safety as the heat index nears/exceeds 100 in some areas this afternoon,” it wrote on X. “Vulnerable populations are recommended to take extra precaution today.”

    The wave is expected to spread across from the East Coast to the Southern Plains and the southern region of the country throughout the week.

    Cities such as Philadelphia, New York City and Chicago are expected to see temperatures between the lower and high 90s on Tuesday.

    About 38 million residents are expected to see temperatures slated either at or higher than 100 degrees throughout the week, the Post reported.

    - The frequency, intensity and duration of heat dome events have exhibited a strong link to the effects of human-caused climate change. https://www.washingtonpost.com/weath...idatlantic-dc/

    Weirdly warm here again today. 25 celsius.

    Lovely autumnal walks to be had in the many parks nearby with the blue skies, leaves turning and unseasonably warm weather.

    Not to last, of course.

    Several European countries record hottest September temperatures ever

    Austria, France, Germany, Poland and Switzerland announced their hottest Septembers on record on Friday, in a year expected to be the warmest in human history as climate change accelerates.




    The unseasonably warm weather in Europe came after the EU climate monitor said earlier this month that global temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere summer were the hottest on record.

    French weather authority Meteo-France said the September temperature average in the country will be around 21.5 degrees Celsius (70.7 degrees Fahrenheit), between 3.5C and 3.6C above the 1991-2020 reference period.

    Average temperatures in France have been exceeding monthly norms consistently for almost two years.

    In neighbouring Germany, weather office DWD said this month was the hottest September since national records started, almost 4C higher than the 1961-1990 baseline.

    Poland’s weather institute announced September temperatures were 3.6C higher than average and the hottest for the month since records began more than 100 years ago.

    National weather bodies in the Alpine nations of Austria and Switzerland also recorded their hottest-ever average September temperatures, a day after a study revealed Swiss glaciers lost 10 percent of their volume in two years amid extreme warming.

    The Spanish and Portuguese national weather institutes warned abnormally warm temperatures were going to hit this weekend, with the mercury topping 35C in parts of southern Spain on Friday.

    Sydney records hottest ever 1 October

    Sydney has sweltered through its hottest start to October on record as fire danger warnings have been issued across the state.

    According to data from the Bureau of Meteorology, there are two years tied for the hottest 1 October on record; a temperature reading of 33.1C was recorded at Observatory Hill weather station in both 1961 and 2009.

    However, the temperature at the site as of 1.40pm on Sunday was recorded as 34.3C, easily smashing the record.

    September 2023 in Japan was exceptionally hot:

    With an average temperature of 24.9C and an anomaly of +2.6C vs 91-20, it pulverized by 1.1C September 2012 as the hottest on records.

    When climatologists blame burning of fossil fuels entirely for higher temperatures, I becom cynical.

    I have no doubt that the climate is changing, but when climatologists ignore records from 120,000 years ago as suspect, and disregard such cyclic changes completely, I become even more cynical.

    Whe population was minuscule, an industry virtually non existent, what caused these previous ‘highs’?

    Dismissing such records as ‘suspect’ does climate science no favors at all.

    Please carry on with your contemporary graphics in isolation.

    ^Here ya go dummy…..

    Whoever tells you that the fact that “the climate has always changed” is somehow reassuring, does not know what he is talking about – or he is trying to con you.

    It is a historical and scientifically proven, established fact. Please continue with your ignorance, so that I can enjoy it even more.

    I’m gonna lean towards Dr. Rahmstorf
