science at its finest


Hurricanes schmuricans. This guy’s beating out science and technology in a few sage seconds ….

D’uh. Why didn’t anyone else think of dumping ice in hurricanes? Or flying planes the opposite way of the storm to slow it down?

The Independent: June was hottest ever recorded on Earth, European satellite agency announces


According to the Independent:

Last month was the hottest June ever recorded, the EU‘s satellite agency has announced.

Data provided by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), implemented by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts on behalf of the EU, showed that the global average temperature for June 2019 was the highest on record for the month.

The data showed European average ​temperatures were more than 2C above normal and temperatures were 6-10C above normal over most of France, Germany and northern Spain during the final days of the month, according to C3S.

The global average temperature was about 0.1C higher than during the previous warmest June in 2016.

Experts have said climate change made last week’s record-breaking European heatwave at least five times as likely to happen, according to recent analysis.

Keeping in mind that weather is not climate, the they tell us we should expect more freakish weather like 3′ of hail falling in Mexico. Our warmer atmosphere is making weather like this more frequent. Ugh.
