    Trying to figure out why the chinook photoes are sharper than no chinook.

    Looks like rising warmed air due to conduction from ground is blurring the picture, but the chinook blows the air away.

      That is what I was thinking.

      The distortion looks very much like what you see over heated roads, a convective effect in still weather..

        And imagine what heat waves are generated by those 18 lane freeways, cities, 1,000% population increases etc where most of the thermometers are kept, that just didn’t exist at the beginning of the Industrial Rev when the world was all of 0.9c cooler.

        ACO2 hasta cause cooling?

      That’s one factor.
      Another factor maybe that vapor is also blown away,as moisture in the air is also a driving factor as is dust.

      When you look at the longest distance records snipers succeed to kill people
      from a mile away,
      there have been dry cool conditions when they succeeded.

      thank god it is no winter in belgium :)

      (but i’m pretty sure some evil coal plants and warm thoughts from Ms. Griff will replace the loss of energy supply,so that our beloved climate savers(we don’t work cause we are so morally superior) can sit in a warm dry co2 powered home(gas,oil or coal) when they try to save the

  2. I asked a chemist “why chinooks” and he volunteered pressure variations over high mountain lakes. It then turned out there is an entire area of physics, limnics, which I knew nothing about. Naturally it relies heavily on dense math. To this day I see lots of prophesies as to why, whoopee, we’re all gonna die from the the technology that keeps us alive, but little in the way of a good explanation for wind howling through Boulder at over 100 mph all night long.
