The Footprint Of Global Warming

Red areas are climate, blue areas are weather.

France’s record hot temperature (115F) was set yesterday a few miles east of Montpelier.

I can’t find any long term data at the record site, but at Montpelier, the temperature at 11 am was 108F, rose to 109F at 11:30, and then fell to 100F at noon.

So for a few minutes, the temperature was a shocking 1F higher than 1935, when France was hot and Japan was flooding.

Meanwhile, 100 miles west at Toulouse, it was 103F yesterday – eight degrees cooler than 1923.

Paris has been nowhere close to record heat. Today is the last day and peak of the heatwave there, with a forecast high of 96F. They have had 164 days since the year 1900 hotter than that, including seven days over 100F.

There can be little doubt that a half hour long surge of heat at a tiny area in France shows the planet is doomed.

    This is the weather station that set the new “record”. Make sure you check out the photos.

    It sits atop a clay tile roof, in the middle of a stone and asphalt heat trap. Pure garbage, even though the French Meteo claims…

    The official French meteorological body, Météo-France, has a network of dense and quality meteorological stations…

    What a load of BS.

    As I remember it, 1967 was a pretty hot year in France too:

    Merckx and Simpson were team-mates for two years at Peugeot BP before Simpson’s death on Mount Ventoux on the Tour de France in 1967. The post mortem afterwards indicated that the use of amphetimes could have contributed to the dehydration which saw him cycle into unconsciousness in the 55-degree heat of that stark Provencal mountain.

    Here in Paris – France, I live on a last but one stage apartment in a 11 floors building, with west, north and south exposure.

    Without AC, the indoor temperature in my appartment just went up to 30.7°C today, and did not passed 29°C in the four precedent days of this week.

    Each night, the temperatures dropped to 20 – 22°C.

    Tomorrow, max temperatures are to drop by about 5 °C.

    After tomorrow, according to GFS, the temperatures in Paris will struggle to go up to 20-22°C and will drop to 10-12°C each night in the next 15 days.

    So much for this ridiculous #climatebreakdown.

    Tony, you’d better update your post!
    Here is the real location of the station and associated images:

    The station (in white) is located near the wine coop with big south facing walls and a major industrial zone to the north east with blacks roofs and to the south, a water canal.

    Images of the station location can be found here:

    The initial Gator Google map showed the wrong location: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.7466067,4.2593928,3a,60y,356.2h,68.17t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sVxprvN6pCBEKNrXcEpMIEw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

    But the infoclimat site also has some confusing information:
    GALLARGUES LE MONTUEUX
    Département 30 Gard
    Altitude 17 mètres
    Coordonnées 43,71°N | 4,17°E
    AND

    It shows some roof installed equipment

    Can we have the source for the data of the last graph ? (also I tried to access the nice globe image on climateReanalyzer but I did not find it :( )

    Air pollution exacerbates heatwaves.

  8. just a thought says:

    There’s a lot more cold in that European map than the warmistas are showing. See Joe Bastardi, beginning at 6:40
