from that article that MBS links above^

As Paris experienced its hottest day ever, reaching 42,6 degrees, a new heat record was set in a village in the south of the country, Verargues, where the mercury hit 46 degrees, smashing the previous record of 44,1 degrees.


42.6c = 108.68?

46c = 114.8???

British women have come up with an interesting and inexpensive way to the fight the heat and stay cool during the recent heat wave.

However, doctors say it isn't medically recommended.

Cheers!
hall of shame
People who buy new cars and then cry crocodile tears over climate change. The manufacture of a typical new car emits ca. 16 tons of CO2 and a new EV is actually much worse since the battery also has to be manufactured, resulting in a total carbon footprint of ca. 30 tons of CO2

The world’s climate emergency is getting harder to ignore


We’re still coming to grips with how hot the recent heat wave that scorched through Europe actually was.

What happened? An intense area of high pressure, known as a “heat dome,” settled over Western Europe. As The Washington Post’s deputy weather editor Andrew Freedman explained, the stunning margins by which many of the previous record highs were eclipsed over the last week point to an inescapable reality: man-made climate change.

“The weather system responsible for the heat wave is now parked on top of Greenland, where it is expected to significantly speed up the pace and extent of ice melt for the next week. It could also help to drive Arctic sea ice to a record low by September, beating a record set in 2012.”

Conditions are all the more terrifying elsewhere.

• Epic heat waves racked South Asia and the Middle East earlier this summer;

•glaciers in the Himalayas are now melting at double the rate since the turn of the century.

•Last month, the World Meteorological Organization projected that the period between the beginning of 2015 and the end of this year will mark the Earth’s five warmest years on record.

It does take a certain kind of person to immediately take notice of these vaginal affairs :roll:
Alike Plant I am surely one of them :-D
Amazing developments indeed.

Dangerous Heat Grips Wide Stretch of the South and Midwest

https://phys.org/news/2019-08-dangerous ... dwest.html

Forecasters are warning of scorching heat across a wide stretch of the U.S. South and Midwest, where the heat index will feel as high as 117 degrees (47 Celsius) in some spots.

Parts of 13 states on Monday will be under heat advisories, from Texas, Louisiana and Florida in the South to Missouri and Illinois in the Midwest, the National Weather Service reported.

Some of the most oppressive conditions Monday were being felt in Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Oklahoma, forecasters said.

It was expected to feel like 116 degrees (46.7 Celsius) in parts of eastern Oklahoma, near Tulsa, on Monday, forecasters said. And parts of Arkansas just west of Memphis, Tennessee, could see heat indexes Monday of around 117 degrees (47.2 Celsius).

... "It feels like hell is what it feels like," said Junae Brooks, who runs Junae's Grocery in Holly Bluff, Mississippi.

In the Mississippi Delta region, farmers did not have a choice but to work in the fields Monday since they're scrambling to make repairs and get caught up after floodwaters inundated the region in recent months. The flooding—which involved an area larger than New York City and Los Angeles combined—has recently receded and the farmers are just now able to reach their land and begin cleaning up the mess left behind.

"The mosquitoes the gnats, the spiders, the snakes—all of them—have been way worse this year," Brooks said of the land known locally as the Yazoo backwater area.

The region hardest-hit by this week's heat wave could experience many more days each year when the heat index soars as the effects of climate change increase, scientists say.

things are sometimes worse then modeled!


The water in Alaska is so hot it is killing salmon


Scientists have observed die-offs of several varieties of Alaskan salmon, including sockeye, chum and pink salmon. ... They looked for signs of lesions, parasites and infections, but came up empty. Nearly all the salmon they found had "beautiful eggs still inside them," she said. Because the die-off coincided with the heat wave, they concluded that heat stress was the cause of the mass deaths...

The water temperatures have breaking records at the same time as the air temperatures, according to Sue Mauger, the science director for the Cook Inletkeeper.
Scientists have been tracking stream temperatures around the Cook Inlet, located south of Anchorage, since 2002. They've never recorded a temperature above 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Until now.
On July 7, a major salmon stream on the west side of the Cook Inlet registered 81.7 degrees.
Mauger said she and her team published a study in 2016, creating models outlining moderate and pessimistic projections for how climate change would drive temperatures in Alaska's streams.

"2019 exceeded the value we expected for the worst-case scenario in 2069," she said.

A possibly historic snow storm in the West plus a heat wave in the East — what's going on? -

Historic snow and a heat wave? That’s what a downright loopy jet stream pattern is bringing to large parts of the United States.

Parts of the Northern Rockies are bracing for what the National Weather Service in Missoula, MT is describing as an “historic winter storm this weekend,” with up to five feet [1.5 meters] of snow forecast. ...

Although this part of the United States is no stranger to early autumn snow, it’s not usually measured in feet.

Meanwhile, parts of the U.S. East Coast are continuing to experience temperatures well above normal for this time of year — and conditions are forecast to heat up even more, potentially to record-high levels next week.

With a stubborn “heat dome” parked overhead, the Southeast has already been enduring one of its hottest Septembers on record.

And the strength of the dome is forecast to intensify next week to a point that occurs just one day every 10 to 30 years during this time of year, according to an analysis by meteorologist Rob Elvington of WAAY TV in Huntsville, AL. ...

Interesting....there is a somewhat similar juxtaposition of a significant cold wave and heat wave in Mongolia & China:

I'm sure glad climate change is only a hoax. I would be worried otherwise.

Radical warming in Siberia leaves millions on unstable ground
A Washington Post analysis found that the region near the town of Zyryanka, in an enormous wedge of eastern Siberia called Yakutia, has warmed by more than 3 degrees Celsius since preindustrial times — roughly triple the global average.

(posted this in gw, but this is really about heat, even if it is more anomalous heat than what in most places would be called a heat wave...does cog do anything other than sneer about anything anymore? )
