Jeez, what a load of utterly stupid bollocks.

Cimate change denial consists of making inane assertions without any evidence. The costs of flooding arising from global warming have been quantified in many reports.

This is what the environment expert said in the irish times a few months back. The customs house would be submerged.

I quoted him here on p.ie, so I hope you wrote a letter to them complaining.

The intellectual height of climate denial is to post inane shyte like this. Or this:

It was snowing in Southern Norway last week, funny how that's never as newsworthy as it being hot somewhere
Maybe with extra water vapour in the atmosphere, snow on mountains is not all that surprising.

Death Valley, California hit an astonishing 129.9 degrees Fahrenheit (54.4°C) at 3:41 p.m. PDT Sunday, August 16, 2020, which was rounded to 130 degrees Fahrenheit in the final report from NOAA.

According to weather records experts Christopher Burt, who wrote the comprehensive weather records book “Extreme Weather,” and Maximiliano Herrera, who tweets under the Twitter handle Extreme Temperatures Around the World, the observation may be the hottest reliably recorded temperature in world history, breaking the 129.2 degrees Fahrenheit readings at Death Valley in 2013 and in Kuwait in 2016.

Climate Statement for July 2020

Cool and wet:

The cool, Atlantic dominated weather from the end of June continued right through July with winds mostly between south-westerly and north-westerly. There were a few occasions where the Azores high ridged up over Ireland giving some dry pleasant weather, especially between the 9th and 11th and be-tween the 19th and 21st. There was rain or showers on most other days during the month, with heavy falls of rain on the 1st in the East, on the 3rd in the West and Northwest and widespread heavy falls on the 7th and 8th as several pulses of rain pushed over the country from the West. After a few mostly dry days, a stream of low pressure systems to the north of Ireland, moving eastwards, brought their associated weather fronts over the country, interspersed with showers, between the 12th and 18th. Pressure remained high to the south of Ireland during this period keeping rainfall amounts generally low. The mostly dry weather between the 19th and 21st broke down once again as Atlantic weather fronts pushed in over the country on the 22nd. Low pressure remained in control of our weather for the rest of the month with some active weather fronts giving heavy falls of rain, especially in the Southeast on the 27th and in the Southwest towards the end of the month causing some flooding.

All mean air temperatures and sunshine amounts across the country were below their Long-Term Average for the month while all rainfall totals were above their Long-Term Average (LTA).

Chaotic fluctuations are characteristic before reaching a tipping point and abrupt jump to a new equilibrium of the system. Certainly though, massive complex systems do not exhibit linear behaviour.

this is not significant and doesn't give any information about the climate. In a scenario where the earth was warming, cooling or unchanging , this could easily occur. You have basically posted the weather for a random part of the planet. it borders on climatic demagoguery
This is hottest temperature ever, measured by modern equipment, and (if confirmed) is beyond doubt, unlike other claims to be the hottest, which were made with dodgy equipment.

How hot was it at the Furnace Creek visitor center at Death Valley national park on 16 August 2020? It was so hot that the huge electronic temperature display (which serves as a ubiquitous selfie backdrop) went on the fritz. Parts of the blocky digital display malfunctioned, resulting in numbers even higher than the actual mind-melting high on what turned out to be a landmark day.
An automated weather station at the visitor center recorded a preliminary high of 129.9F (54.4C) at 3.41pm PDT on Sunday. Even for heat-favored landscapes such as Death Valley, it is remarkable for temperatures to inch into such territory so late in the summer, when the sun is considerably lower in the sky than at the summer solstice in late June.

Every year, heat records are broken all over the world. Fewer and fewer cold records are being broken. That can only mean one thing.

Given that for the vast majority of the globe has records that barely go back 100 years, that is a nonsense statement!!

Nearly all the serious evidence points one way, unfortunately; AGW is a menace that is just going to get worse.

Sadly, yes.

It is loomng up, after the pandemic, after the economic crash, slower in its effects but inexorable.

Along with it is a Crisis of the Natural World - mass extinctions of species, acidification of the oceans, as well as the changes in the climate.

What chaotic fluctuations?
There's always been flooding in Cork, it's quite normal.

Only if you want to believe it.

If you look at it impartially you can see the climate hasn't changed in any way remarkable.

What mass extinction?

I wouldnt worry about it, the global economy is expected to grow 10 times by 2100 and global warming is expected to knock 1% off that. Only people with small imaginations imagine we will be fighting future wars with stone age tools or somehow humans will just sit back and not take mitigation steps to work around any local affects

You mean "If you ignore all the data, you can believe all sorts of crap ".

Pretty well sums up denier shyte.

Few things are more amusing that climate change deniers confirming to each other the stupid things they believe. :rolleyes:

1960-70 was the coolest decade last century, that's why you choose that as the start point of your 'rise'.

Iow it's a conjob, and you fall for it every time.
