I know heat and humidity well but the world will be learning more about it with climate change. These events I am mentioning are WetBubble Temp... There is too much humidity in the air so you can not cool off...


The wet-bulb temperature (WBT) is the temperature read by a thermometer covered in water-soaked (water at ambient temperature) cloth (a wet-bulb thermometer) over which air is passed.[1] At 100% relative humidity, the wet-bulb temperature is equal to the air temperature (dry-bulb temperature); at lower humidity the wet-bulb temperature is lower than dry-bulb temperature because of evaporative cooling.


Recent research has found that we may actually already be nearing the threshold values for human survivability of temperature and humidity for short periods in some places of the world – a measure known as the “wet-bulb” temperature – and that this threshold may actually be far lower than previously thought. Wet-bulb temperature (WBT) combines dry air temperature (as you’d see on a thermometer) with humidity – in essence, it is a measure of heat-stress conditions on humans.

Concern often centres on the “threshold” or “critical” WBT for humans, the point at which a healthy person could survive for only six hours. This is usually considered to be 35C, approximately equivalent to an air temperature of 40C with a relative humidity of 75%. (At the UK’s 19 July peak temperature, relative humidity was approximately 25% and the wet-bulb temperature about 25C.)

Here is a carbon capture scam in North Dakota...


Even if we stopped all emissions, what is already there would only dissipate or be absorbed over a period of centuries. Nonetheless, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has encouraged the CCS scam because most IPCC climate models require CCS to balance the carbon books.

Here is the Guardian which is usually hip to scams but not with the CCS scam... No one in power willing to call it a scam...


Over-reliance on carbon capture and storage technology could lead the world to surpass climate tipping points, the head of the world’s climate science authority has warned.

Our electric grid will not handle the EV revolution unless they upgrade the grid fast...

Be scared the AMOC is slowing the deep ocean current is going to collapse... the Tipping point is coming...


The Gulf Stream system could collapse as soon as 2025, a new study suggests. The shutting down of the vital ocean currents, called the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (Amoc) scientists, would bring catastrophic climate impacts.

The new analysis estimates a timescale for the collapse of between 2025 and 2095, with a central estimate of 2050, if global carbon emissions are not reduced. Evidence from past collapses indicates changes of temperature of 10C in a few decades, although these occurred during ice ages.

It seems the climate deniers get a mini win... @rittmeister , @Wehrkraftzersetzer , @jgoodguy , @O' Be Joyful , @Tom ...


The authors note that current climate change modeling relies on multiple assumptions and factors related to policy options and societal developments. An international team of climate scientists, economists, and energy systems modelers developed the SSPs, which are used to derive greenhouse gas emissions scenarios under different sets of policies that assume continued and significant GDP growth through 2100.

i hope you don't list me as a 'climate denier' here

... and where do you see a mini win for them?

By prioritizing large-scale societal change, our proposed pathway could limit warming much more effectively than pathways that support rising resource consumption by wealthy nations,
so how on earth is that a mini win for climate deniars (they are usually rather rich or if not you know)?

It's aini win... Water temperatures are rising but vary...


How often have you been caught in the rain unexpectedly and wondered, “What’s the use of forecasters if they can’t even get the weather right?” While this complaint misses the complexity and accuracy of modern forecasting, it gets at a reasonable concern: Can we predict the future of our planet and its climate?
