Heatwave threatens Tunisia’s power supply
July 15, 2017 at 12:26 pm | Published in: Africa, News, Tunisia

Image

Tunisia is unable to supply its residents with sufficient electricity as a result of the increased demand caused by the heatwave, the minister of energy revealed yesterday.

In a press conference held in Tunis, Minister of Energy, Mining and Renewables, Hela Cheikhrouhou, said: “The state company is facing a crisis due to the increasing daily electricity consumption, mainly during the current heatwave.”

She said that the daily consumption of electricity has increased by 11 per cent compared to the same period last year.

In addition to the current heatwave, she said the suspension of work in gas fields in the south of the country due to the protests calling for investment contributed to the crisis because it reduced the productivity of a number of electricity plants.

In an effort to deal with the gas shortage, the minister said a deal had been struck with neighbouring Algeria.

She also said that the daily consumption of electricity in the country has almost reached the peak, noting that the current daily consumption is 3,800 Megawatt while the expected peak demand is between 3,600 and 3,900 Megawatt.....

My flaming war with this hellish heat wave

Literally speaking, it’s impossible to beat the heat. I know. I tried.

This morning, I walked outside and started violently punching and kicking the juicy atmosphere. My vicious karate seemed to have no effect on the humidity and haze. When my neighbor came out to retrieve her morning paper and cried out, “What are you doing, idiot,” I knew it was time to retreat indoors. Fatigued and sweaty, I took a long, cold shower.

Just because I couldn’t literally beat the heat, didn’t mean I was going to let the heat beat me. I’m terribly stubborn like that. It was at this point that I devised a masterful plan to beat the heat, not physically, but by employing psychological warfare.

A few hours after my tete-e-tete with the weather, I walked out onto my sunny driveway, wearing a fleece vest and carrying my fire pit. It was brutally hot; the hottest weather this region has seen in 1 million years (according to a local weather blog).

China in the grip of sweltering heatwave with temperatures hitting 50 deg C

BEIJING - As many as 21 provinces and regions in China are baking under a scorching heatwave even as the south reels from devastating floods which killed at least 50 people and forced 1.6 million to flee their homes.

A heat wave will expand from northern China to the central and eastern regions in the coming three days, reported state media. As much as one-third of China's land mass will be affected.

Maximum temperatures in 31 counties and cities in Xinjiang, Ningxia, Gansu, Shaanxi and Sichuan have hit record highs. The Chinese city of Xi'an in Shaanxi saw ground temperatures hitting as high as 50 deg C on Monday (July 10), according to a report on news portal Sina.

Surprising Scientists, 2017 Could Be among Hottest on Record
Global temperatures this year have been 1.64 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th-century average
Heat spiked in spots across the globe. Africa saw its hottest June ever recorded. Europe and South America were much warmer than average. The American Southwest saw a heat wave break multiple temperature records, as well. Eastern Russia was an anomaly, with cooler-than-average conditions, even as the rest of the country was much warmer than average.

Hottest day ever in Shanghai as heat wave bakes China

Shanghai sweltered under a new record high of 40.9°C (105°F) on Friday (Jul 21), authorities said as they issued a weather "red alert" over a stubborn heat wave that has plagued much of the country.

Hospitals in the city have reported increased numbers of patients suffering from heat-related illnesses, according to state media, and the Shanghai zoo said it was putting large blocks of ice into some animal enclosures to help them beat the heat, while providing frozen apples to its pandas.

China's most populous city has baked under soaring summer temperatures for more than two weeks and Friday afternoon reached the hottest point since the establishment of its benchmark weather station in 1872, the municipal weather bureau said.

Other areas of China also have seen records set in recent weeks, in what has been a torrid summer so far for much of the country, while large areas of south-central China have endured raging floods from torrential rain....

Heat Wave in Iceland




Iceland is experiencing a summer heat wave this week, with temperatures rising over 25°C (77°F) for the first time since 2013, RÚV reports. A season high of 27.7°C (82°F) was recorded yesterday in Fnjóskadalur, in Northeast Iceland. It has not been this hot in Iceland since Agust 2012, when it reached 27°C in the Eastern fishing village of Eskifjörður.

The average temperature in Iceland during July and August is 10°C (50°F). Between 2014 and 2016, temperatures never rose above 25°C, but this year has been hotter—particularly in the northeast.....

Italy braces for ‘the hottest week of the year’


After a brief respite, temperatures across Italy are set to creep up again this week, eclipsing 40 degrees Celsius in Sardinia.
The latest heatwave could not only be “the most intense of 2017, but also of the last few years”, meteorologists said.

It comes as Italy grapples with a prolonged drought.

Temperatures will rise steadily over the next few days, hitting between 38 and 40 degrees Celsius by Wednesday.

The hottest regions will be Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo and Lazio, while Sardinia will swelter under temperatures of between 42 and 43 degrees Celsius.

USA / Portland could hit 108 degrees this week, breaking all-time record

A record-breaking heat wave is scorching the Northwest.

Following previous brutal heat waves in the Southwest and East, folks in northern California and western portions of Oregon and Washington are enduring blistering temperatures, some of which may shatter all-time records.

"The current heat wave in the Northwest may end up being the most notable event of the entire summer for the U.S.," AccuWeather meteorologist Elliot Abrams said.

The intense heat will threaten human health, potentially cause power blackouts and exacerbate the spread of wildfires.

490 Celsius, i.e. 1200 Fahrenheit is unreal for Naples. I've never been there, only to Rome. However, for a population center that I doubt is use to such high temperatures, it's hard to imagine. The highest I've experienced is 110 in the desert and in coastal valleys. In the desert, you expect it and the relatively low humidity makes for not that bad an experience. However, with humidity, 110 degrees, even near a lake, under tree cover, I was dousing myself with cold tap water every half hour.

Deadly heat waves projected in the densely populated agricultural regions of South AsiaScience Advances, Vol. 3, no. 8, e1603322, DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1603322
http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/8/e1603322

Abstract: "The risk associated with any climate change impact reflects intensity of natural hazard and level of human vulnerability. Previous work has shown that a wet-bulb temperature of 35°C can be considered an upper limit on human survivability. On the basis of an ensemble of high-resolution climate change simulations, we project that extremes of wet-bulb temperature in South Asia are likely to approach and, in a few locations, exceed this critical threshold by the late 21st century under the business-as-usual scenario of future greenhouse gas emissions. The most intense hazard from extreme future heat waves is concentrated around densely populated agricultural regions of the Ganges and Indus river basins. Climate change, without mitigation, presents a serious and unique risk in South Asia, a region inhabited by about one-fifth of the global human population, due to an unprecedented combination of severe natural hazard and acute vulnerability."

Northwest heat wave: Portland area breaks temp records
Portland hit 105 degrees Wednesday night

RALPH ELLIS JUDSON JONES AND PHIL GAST CNN
Posted: Aug 03, 2017 08:20 PM CDT Updated: Aug 03, 2017 09:53 PM CDT

(CNN) - The Pacific Northwest was sweltering through another round of miserable weather Thursday as smoke from wildfires hung in the air and already-scorching temperatures kept climbing.

The city of Portland, Oregon, broke a daily record with a 103-degree high, the National Weather Service reported. The city hit 105 degrees Thursday night, breaking a 65-year-old record of 99 degrees for the day.

The heat makes life difficult for people like Food Front Cooperative Grocery manager Jeff Hough, who told CNN affiliate KPTV the store's coolers are shutting down and it's difficult even to keep the doors closed.

"The front door, the rubber expanded, so it's not shutting. It got so hot the door won't shut," he told the station.

Seattle also broke a daily record. The city reached 91 degrees on Thursday, breaking the previous high of 90 degrees from August 3, 1988.

The heat wave in B.C. this week has broken temperature records that have stood for over 100 years, according to Environment Canada.

In a preliminary report released Wednesday, the agency said a ridge of high pressure over the southern half of the province led to several days of broken maximum temperature records.

Some notable areas included Agassiz, which saw a high of 35.6 C on Aug. 2, compared to the previous record of 34.4 C in 1898.

Afircan heat heading North....

Unread postby Whitefang » Fri 04 Aug 2017, 03:38:22

https://www.theguardian.com/environment ... od.weather

The prolonged heatwave has devastated crops across Europe, leaving some countries facing their worst harvests since the end of the second world war.
The searing weather, especially in central and eastern Europe, has forced countries that usually export food to import it for the first time in decades. Several, including Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania, are experiencing rising food prices and the UN is warning this will have a severe impact on economies.
According to the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), wheat output in the EU is expected to be millions of tonnes down on last year, with much greater losses in southern Europe than in the north.

France has also been severely hit, and is expected to lose more than 20% of its grain harvests. Italy is expected to lose 13% of its wheat, Britain 12% and other countries 5%-10%. In Britain, one immediate effect is likely to be a 7p rise in the price of a loaf, retailers said.


https://www.livescience.com/53400-crop- ... warms.html

As prolonged drought and extreme temperatures have taken their terrible toll on food crops in recent years, nations have tended to focus on regional episodes, such as a single drought-afflicted state or region. Now, scientists have assessed the global scale of food crop disasters for the first time — and the news is not good.

In a new study, researchers from Canada and the United Kingdom estimate that cereal harvests — including rice, wheat and maize — decreased by an average of 9 to10 percent during droughts and heat waves between 1964 and 2007, with the worst effects seen in North America, Europe, and Australia and its neighboring islands. Furthermore, the impact has grown larger in recent years. With climate change likely to exacerbate extreme weather and make it more common in the future, the study is perhaps the most comprehensive examination yet of the historic impact of extreme weather on global crop production.

Composite reconstruction of 300,000-year-old fossils from the site of Jebel Irhoud in Morocco. Researchers say the fossils are the earliest known remains of Homo sapiens. Credit: Philipp Gunz, MPI EVA Leipzig


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jebel_Irhoud

This suggests that, rather than arising in East Africa around 200,000 years ago, modern humans may already have been present across the length of Africa 100,000 years earlier. According to study author Jean-Jacques Hublin, "The idea is that early Homo sapiens dispersed around the continent and elements of human modernity appeared in different places, and so different parts of Africa contributed to the emergence of what we call modern humans today."[13] Early humans may have comprised a large, interbreeding population dispersed across Africa whose spread was facilitated by a wetter climate that created a "green Sahara", around 330,000 to 300,000 years ago. The rise of modern humans may thus have taken place on a continental scale rather than being confined to a particular corner of Africa.[15]

Other findings[edit]

When comparing the fossils with those of modern humans, the main difference is the elongated shape of the fossil braincase. According to the researchers, this indicates that brain shape, and possibly brain functions, evolved within the Homo sapiens lineage and relatively recently.[13][7] Evolutionary changes in brain shape are likely to be associated with genetic changes of the brain's organization, interconnection and development[16] and may reflect adaptive changes in the way the brain functions.[1] Such changes may have caused the human brain to become rounder and two regions in the back of the brain to become enlarged over thousands of years of evolution.[1]

Two dead as 'Lucifer' heatwave holds Italy, eastern Europe in fiery grip

Swathes of southern and eastern Europe have sweltered in temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius in a heatwave nicknamed "Lucifer", which has killed at least two people across the region.

Italy and the Balkans were worst affected, though areas as far north as southern Poland also basked in abnormally hot temperatures, and European weather hub Meteoalarm issued its highest grade "red" warnings for 10 countries.

At least two people have died from the heat — one in Romania and one in Poland — and many more have been taken to hospital suffering from sunstroke and other heat-related conditions.

In Albania, 300 firefighters and soldiers struggled to contain as many as 75 forest fires and the country asked the European Union for emergency help.

Firefighters were also busy in Serbia, Bosnia, Macedonia and Croatia, and authorities advised people to stay indoors and increase their water intake.

Temperatures were expected to stay around 40 degrees Celsius into next week.
