European Heatwave Update

Europe is experiencing record cold, and the Washington Post says leaders must take the “scorching heat” seriously.

    There must be something happening this month. There’s been a spate of news articles on sea level rise, more frequent extreme weather and grape growers from Bordeaux to Tasmania having to plant different varieties ‘due to global warming’. Just to confound all of this, Australia’s most well know historian, Geoffrey Blainey, has stated that we should be careful about our conclusions regarding climate as we may unnecessarily burden our poorest in our efforts to modify the climate. He went on to give examples of previous warm periods which spontaneously returned to average temperatures.

    Oh, and to reinforce the fact that sea levels are rising, an apartment block on Sydney’s Northern beaches had all of the sand eroded away from it’s base earlier this year. Absolute proof of sea level rise coupled with ‘extreme weather ‘. I remember the same thing happening to that block in the sixties and seventies. It was simply a stupid place to build those apartments.

      Professor Blainey made quite a cautious statement about climate change yet the green police came out en masse to tar and feather his “denial” and proclaim his lack of qualification in the area. The implication that non climate scientists should not comment on climate change being a natural phenomenon and yet advocating it as proven fact can be done by anyone including children is irony that is totally lost on these ignoramuses.

      • Mark Amey says:

        Thanks for posting the link. Yes, it seems anyone from paleontologist to a professor of gender studies can comment on climate, if they adhere to the script. He has previously been in strife for suggesting that historians only publish research based on actual evidence, not hearsay or , again, adherence to groupthink.

      Nobody talking about the Antarctic heatwave.

        What is there to say. A very balmy minus 6 degrees C at Scott base just now, the blizzards have relented for a bit, and the Aurora Australis is providing a measure of eerie light to break the 24 hour darkness.
        I can hear the joyous kerfuffle from all the penguins, basking in the warmth, their chicks might survive this year, indeed the melting sea ice will release a bounty of nutrients that will benefit the whole food chain, from plankton to whales.

    I live in The Netherlands near Amsterdam.
    Last week it we had a few warm days and now its cold again ,its called weather .
    Our goverment has signed for less CO2 to reduce the warm days they say.
    But; what is true ?More Co2 means more green and food for the people .
    If we reduce the Co2 to lets say 50 PPM ,no plant will grow .
    So what is the plan from our goverments? The only thing i can think of is not to reduce the temp,but reduce the worldpopulation ,and the taxpayers will pay for it .most deaths will fall in inda ,china ,africa and some parts of russia .war without gun , how convenient.

    Mark says: “There must be something happening this month.”

    Not this month, but soon:

    UN Secretary-General António Guterres will host the 2019 Climate Action Summit on 23 September to meet the climate challenge.

    • Disillusioned says:

      What “climate challenge?” I became disillusioned, stopped being a believer and stopped passing out Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth when I couldn’t find one.

    • Mark Amey says:

      It seems like there’s a climate meeting in some distant locale every few months, or perhaps time is accelerating for oldies like me.

    • Henning Nielsen says:

      Oh, the 25th COP in Chile, this year. Thousands of climate-savers flying in. What will Greta Thunberg say to that? Do these climate warriors ever experince the new Swedish export success; “Shame of flying”? (forget about Volvo, it’s Chinese-owned anyway) If it’s a crusade, then mount your horse! And there are seahorses as well, so I’ve heard. But the date in late September will be very handy for sending desperate messages about the Arctic sea-ice melting, which will just have reached its annual minium at that time.

    Straight of the: “if it’s cold, it’s weather, if it’s hot, it’s climate” playbook.

    WaPo’s idiocy continues.

    • arn says:


      Thanks to the strategicl rebranding global warming to climate change they can now even blame cold weather on co2.
      Now too cold weather and too much snow is climate “disruption”(or whatever new artificial term they created to impress the naive with apocalypse)

      As Rahm Emmanuel said:”Never wate a crisis.
      During the global warming era they could only use half of the crisis
      and even worse,the deniers used the other half against them.
      But since climate change every anomaly got monopolised for their purpose.

    Proof Scotland had a 1 day heatwave.

    Is this Scotland or Greece?

    Hardrock 100 update…

    Jim Walmsley who is arguably one of the worlds best ultra runners took this shot from the higher elevations of the Hardrock 100 course, this is 10K+ feet. Normally it is bare ground in mid July when the race is held.

    When officials cancelled Hardrock they blamed heavy avalanches, debris, difficulty reaching aid station locations, etc. In addition the course is still COVERED in snow.

    Colorado in the US Drought Monitor remains drought free. Upper Colorado River reservoirs are 92% full and headed to about 95-97% by end of runoff. Lake Powell will rise over 55 feet this year to 60% of capacity, an amazing rebound from one really bad year in 2018. Lake Mead is the highest in five years.

    And this is reported as, a catastrophe.

    • John F. Hultquist says:

      For those that haven’t seen this chart;
      click gray squares to add or subtract years.

      The Hardrock 100 has about 65,000 feet more elevation change than I want to deal with.
      We worked on the lower part (700 ft.) of the Granite Mountain Trail (WA State Cascades) on Fri & Sun. Did drainage, rocks, and roots. Pulaski and shovels, etc. Likely did about 2,000 feet up and down over the two days.
      That’s enough elevation change for me.

    What heat wave.

    One day is not a heat wave.

    but I bet the wish they had some of that warmth back
