First- wow what an ******* thing to do- par for the course.

Second, what stupid ******* idiot would spend $1.50 per straw? trump's base would...

The Potomac River, which flows through the US capital Washington, hit a record high temperature of 94 degrees Fahrenheit (34 degrees Celsius) over the weekend -- as warm as bathwater -- following a major heat wave.

Nothing to worry about, though... right? All just part of the "alarmist hoax."

sadly, (plus 40 in France today, ice shelf the size of an American state becoming unstable)  it's too late to stop this, but fortunately, not too late do something to "mitigate" it.

As it stands, things look very very ugly, no matter what we do.

"By measuring the amount of this freshwater, the researchers could estimate how much i

ice was being lost. The melt rates “were just crazy,” says Adrian Jenkins, a glaciologist from the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge. According to his calculations, the ice shelf was losing 13 cubic miles of ice per year from its underside; back near the grounding line, the ice was probably thinning up to 300 feet per year.

“It was just beyond our concept that a glacier would melt that fast,” Jenkins says..........

...........Fricker and her team have found that from 1994 to 2012, the amount of ice disappearing from all Antarctic ice shelves, not just the ones in the Amundsen Sea, increased 12-fold, from six cubic miles to 74 cubic miles per year. “I think it’s time for us scientists to stop being so cautious” about communicating the risks, she says.

The retreat and hemorrhage of these glaciers “will accelerate over time,” agrees Rignot. “Maybe you don’t care much about that for the next 30 to 40 years, but from 2050 to 2100 things could get really bad, and at that point listening to scientists is irrelevant.” Yet after things get really bad, they could still get worse."

No question, parts of the planet that currently have large populations, are going to become uninhabitable.

A temperature of 42.6C has been recorded in Paris, the hottest in the city’s history.

 In late June the country experienced a record temperature of 46.1C in the south of France, however in terms of average temperature, the current heatwave is already hotter.

a peer-reviewed study published this week warns that if we don’t reverse emissions trends quickly and sharply, we will see a rise in unprecedented heat waves that will “break” the National Weather Service’s heat index scale.

The researchers warn we will face extended scorchers more brutal than the United States has ever experienced before. In several decades, parts of Florida and Texas could experience a heat index for five or more months per year exceeding 100 degrees, “with most of these days even surpassing 105 degrees.”

America (and much of the world) will start seeing monster “humid heat waves” — where the heat index hits a potentially fatal 131 degrees — every other year by century’s end.

just read polling shows 70 percent of British people think climate change is the most important problem.

After months of record temperatures, scientists say Greenland's ice sheet experienced its biggest melt of the summer on Thursday, losing 11 billion tons of surface ice to the ocean -- equivalent to 4.4 million Olympic swimming pools.

Greenland's
ice sheet usually melts during the summer, but the melt season typically begins around the end of May; this year it began at the start. It has been melting "persistently" over the past four months, which have recorded all time temperature highs, according to Ruth Mottram, a climate scientist with Danish Meteorological Institute.

I counter that with two Studies that you should read:

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-29032-2

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-18849-y

 

Which both support what you already knew:

Yeah, but:

"Callum says producers might not sell off their entire herds, but downsizing could certainly happen.

He says producers are facing back-to-back years of dry conditions and will struggle to salvage the rest of the season.

Manitoba Agriculture’s latest crop report says hay and forage yields are “significantly below average” and at 40 to 60 per cent of normal."

Well. I love my beef.

But if this reduces the heard sizes and drives the price of beef up so that people buy less...

Rib eyes once a month instead of twice. Yeah that works.

I hear what you're saying - just pointing out that although our part of the world will likely see some benefit to warming, there will be many casualties as well.  In this particular case, the first ranchers to go will be the small ones and I have never seen that fewer, bigger farms is beneficial to the environment.

Well when you put it that way, I totally agree. 

I was focused more on the balancing that might have occurred.

Totally got that.  It will be interesting to see what problems "solve" themselves, but will depend on everyone's' definition of a particular solution, I guess.

Farmers losing money has no effect on the retail price of food. THey had no hay last year either, were shipping many animals, did nothing to what red meat cost at the grocery.

When they are farming on the southern tip of Greenland again, like the Vikings did for 1000 years before we became abnormally cool, call me....

So... you want us to call you when people are farming in Greenland like the vikings... Uh, ok... sure thing.

 

They are farming there already.

And it's still not warm enough to grow corn like the Vikings did for 400 years, we're still about 80 - 100 years off from that but it will, with or without our help.
