We have been getting millions of bats filling the sky on dusk for the last month but not the last few days .
This heat may have taken its toll.

Third Record High In A Week Set As Winter Heat Wave Continues
February 16, 2017 4:57 PM

DENVER (CBS4)– For the second day in a row and the third time in a week, Denver set a new daily record high on Thursday when the temperature climbed to 75 degrees at Denver International Airport. The old record for Feb. 16 was 70 degrees set in 1970.

Typically highs for mid-February are around the middle 40s in Denver.

February is currently tied for the third warmest on record in Denver since 1873.

I'm looking forward to a little "heatwave" predicted for the weekend. High temps in the 40"s F will help settle the four feet of snow I have on the ground most of which has fallen this month. I have another @$# &*#@! six inches to plow this morning.

Can Australia's wicked heat wave convince climate change deniers?
Sydney's sweltering recent record high of 47 degrees Celsius has brought the reality of climate change into sharp focus for many Australians. Skepticism in the country is waning - quickly enough?
Image
Thousands of bats fell dead out of the trees as Sydney's parched suburbs reached their hottest temperature on record earlier this month: 47 degrees Celsius (117 degrees Fahrenheit) saw parts of the city receiving the dubious honor of being the hottest place on the planet that day.
That would be considered an unusually hot day, even in the Sahara Desert.
The city's human residents fled to beaches, shops sold out of fans and power cuts hit more than 40,000 homes in southern Australia after the electricity grid struggled to cope with air conditioning demand. A total of 87 fires raged across the state of New South Wales at the heat wave's peak in February.....

Last Saturday my corner of Northwest Ohio i.e. Toledo, set a new high temperature daily record, we set another today, Thursday, and unless something really wild happens we will set a third new record tomorrow possibly even a new record for the month. The record we broke today was from 1930 from what the weather guy just said on the radio.

I finally got my one mile driveway plowed enough to get my Toyota truck to the bottom of my hill. I have 3 foot berms all the way down.
It is supposed to warm up to 38 F on Wednesday, so I suppose spring is finally on the way. I wish it would hurry.
This is in eastern Washington state, BTW.
I still believe in AGW, but sometimes winter seems to fight back.

We're on track to blow past the 2°C limit on global temperature increases agreed to in the 2015 Paris Accords in a few more years.

I wonder what will happen then?

Maybe they'll call Obama back from retirement and meet again and amend the Paris Accords and set a new 3°C limit on temperature increases? :lol:

Snow crab stocks off the coast of Newf/Lab are down 80% since 2013. The cause is acknowledged as warming waters over the past "decade or more."

This comes on the heels of a similar announcement of decline in shrimp stocks. These two species are significant "cash cows" for fishermen and fishing communities in Atlantic Canada, and declines mean nothing but bad news for the economies of the Atlantic provinces, with cod stocks still on the ropes.

Isn't that kind of a given? Wealthy countries or wealthy people in poor countries always have the means of dealing with things that have solutions. By this I mean weather events locally or moving to other places for climate events.

Skepticism in the country is waning XX wilting.

Still, nothing will be done. That's why cars have air conditioners.

However, when fuels run out, then the shit really hits the fan, if there are fans.

Hottest ever recorded temperature at Bundaberg Airport yesterday

BUREAU of Meteorology observations show today's temperature reached a top of 39 degrees.

That is 2.5 degrees above the previous record for the hottest March day recorded at Bundaberg Airport.

Charts show the mercury read 38.3 at 2.39pm.

Overall, temperatures this month so far have been 2.4 degrees above the March long-term average of 19.9 degrees.

https://www.news-mail.com.au/news/hotte ... y/3151314/



Also the driest ever February

IT'S official: Bundaberg has experienced its driest February on record with a paltry 1.8mm of rain falling last month, leaving farmers across our region desperate for water relief.

It's the driest month in more than a century - eclipsing the previous record held for February in 1892 when 2.9mm of rain fell, according to Bureau of Meteorology data.

Melbourne apartments unable to withstand heatwave conditions, fail to keep residents safe
Melbourne’s apartments would fail to keep residents safe during a heatwave because they do not meet international health standards for indoor temperature levels, according to a new report.

Unlike France, Germany, the UK and the US, Australia has no best practice standards to protect the health of apartment residents. The six common Melbourne building models tested without cooling systems by the University of Melbourne were found to fail each of those country’s measures.....

March 19, 2017 - 9:27pmLas Vegas Valley hits 90, breaks another record in March heat wave[/size]


LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
March’s record-breaking heat continued Sunday in the Las Vegas Valley.

The valley hit another record high, 90 degrees, which brings the total daily record highs for the month to four, the National Weather Service said.

Sunday’s high beat the record for March 19 set in 1939 by 2 degrees, meteorologist Jim Harrison said.

Tucson's March heat wave has brought an unprecedented stretch of temperatures in the high-80s to low-90s, and broken several records along the way.

With eight consecutive March days above 88 degrees- which continued yesterday- this year broke 1989's record of seven days.

Thanks for keeping us updated on these, MBS.

Here's more on Australia's massive heatwave last month:

Welcome to hell on Earth

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-n ... s-expected

Australia's heatwave continues with record temperatures forecast:

NSW and Queensland brace for hottest February day on record, putting paramedics on high alert


And don't forget their heat wave the previous month:

Eastern Australia swelters under heatwave as hottest January on record looms

Western Sydney temperatures reach 43C as northern New South Wales and southern Queensland suffer


(Was it a couple years ago that they had to start adding new colors to the temperature maps there to capture this new range of heat, unanticipated at the time they first chose their range of available hues.)

With predictably lethal consequences for the Great Barrier Reef:

Global Warming Is Killing the Great Barrier Reef

Large sections of the Great Barrier Reef are already dead, and scientists warn that the rest of the coral organisms that make up the sprawling reef ecosystem will die if global warming continues unabated.

Meanwhile, a few thousand miles to the WNW, AGW is in the process of killing off an entire sea:

https://robertscribbler.com/2017/03/19/ ... cean-life/

The Glowing Waters of the Arabian Sea are Killing off Ocean Life

Notable:

The oceans beneath the noctiluca mats are now increasingly robbed of life. Oxygen levels are plummeting. The fish can’t breathe there.

And one wonders if or when a dangerous and deadly follow-on of hydrogen sulfide producing microbes will begin to spread up from the bottom regions of these oxygen starved waters.


Will H2S clouds soon be drifting over India, Africa and the ME killing millions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions, billions...? And not just human life, of course, would be obliterated.
