A Month’s Worth of Rain

May 6, 2014

I think I’ve mentioned before that if anyone knows how to script, send me some kind of app where I can just hit an “f” key and automatically type “a month’s worth of rain in 24 hours”.  “F2” will go to “A year’s worth of rain..”

This time, Italy/south east Europe.

    And the deniers are also looking for apps that will give them with one key stroke: “no single weather event can be blamed on AGW”, “average global temperature has not risen since 1998”, and “it’s Al Gore’s fault”.

    BTW, in the Washington DC area’s “one month of rain in 24 hours” last week, we had great video of some denier who drive his $90+K Land Rover into 4 feet of water and got stuck, and another who did so with his MASERATI sports car (with his dog in the passenger seat, no less).

    “Warming ‘increasingly disruptive’ across US – report”

    “A key element driving this conclusion is the observed evidence on extreme weather events such as heavy downpours of rain.

    Between 1958 and 2012, the amount of precipitation falling in very heavy events increased by 71% in New England and the north east, while in the drier West it went up by just 5%. ”

    “Our leading scientists send a stark message: Climate change is already seriously disrupting our lives, hurting our health and damaging our economy,” said Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

    “If we don’t slam the brakes on the carbon pollution driving climate change, we’re dooming ourselves and our children to more intense heat waves, destructive floods and storms, and surging sea levels.”
