Re: France records its all-time hottest temperature, a sweltering 44.3C

I'm glad to say it's only 15°C/59°F where I am.

But if global warming continues, we're in big trouble...

aren't you in Finland mate? Do they use Fahrenheit? I would understand for you to use both if you were living UK but for Finland it came as funny :lol: guess Brits still not comfortable enough with Celsius.

What is going on with our planet? <img src="https://www.tennisforum.com/images/smilies/sad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Sad" class="inlineimg" />

It's called climate change.

A lot of the world is experiencing weather it shouldn't. Welcome to the new world.

Honestly in our lifetime we are probably going to see some super messed up events. Like Venice and Floridabeing buried in water and a bunch of other stuff.

Re: France records its all-time hottest temperature, a sweltering 44.3°C

It is beyond worrisome, flooding everywhere these days, hurricanes of unprecedented regularity and force and the season so much longer, the worst wildfires anyone can remember, artic melting, acidification of oceans and disappearance of fish; biggest mass extinction of animals in in tens of thousands of years, loss of forests, etc. etc. etc.

Only an idiot can doubt it at this point, and it is driven by greed and lack of regard for life.

The only positive is humans will vanish from the planet because life will be unsustainable--but first: unimaginable violence and conflict over dwindling resources--and the planet will cleanse it self and hopefully some better creature will rise to the top of the food chain.

Though whatever rises to the top of the food chain is probably, by nature, selfish.

Scientists give us about 10 years to take drastic measures for reversal (or containment) of climate change or we're cooked.

Consider how far Trump set us back. And that's just one nation.

Yes, I'm in Finland, but whenever I write a temperature on this forum, I also put it in Fahrenheit for the benefit of Americans. :)

What does any of that have to do with random hot day in France?

Let them do the math, they don't care for you as much.

It's 42°C right now here (NE Spain), I don't remember such a temperature ever.

Anyway there have been countless climate changes during planet Earth existence, and there will be many more. Some cars fumes are nothing compared to the power of Sun and inner Earth forces. It's all bullshit of the highest degree, political agendas.

On a bright side, Siberia gets warmer, permafrost retreats, more and more land over there becomes arable every year.
Maybe in few years Arctic sea resorts will be what Caribbean is now ?

I updated the thread title because BBC News updated its story, it is not 44.3C anymore, but 45.9! We have to act to control climate change.

I remember Trump's remark few years ago: They talk so much about global warming, meh, it is freezing out there today'' the guy now is the president...

global warming was a wrong term indeed, it is correctly edited to climate change by the academics.

Geneva is scalding hot too, right now. Suffocating, even, because it's relatively humid - that's the trouble when you are in the middle of a giant basin. It's "only" about 36-37, but if feels like 42 or something.

The groundwater levels have been alarmingly low for years now, but it's getting worse every time; the glaciers do not look like glaciers at all anymore. They are direct proofs of climate change, if some people still needed evidence (they are lost causes anyway, they can go to hell for all I care about that kind of people, they don't deserve this Earth). Since the start of June, we've been receiving alerts via mail and billboards to use water very cautiously and for important matters only (food, basic hygiene).
Natural changes in climate are OK and were constant in the Earth's History, but this is not normal at all. It's going way too fast and Humanity is not prepared for this. The warm days are too warm and for too long, the sparse (even rare, these days, even in Switzerland) rainfalls are stronger everytime (not even 2 weeks ago we had huge rainfalls here, causing much troubles, with stuff I had never seen here since I was born), ...


Our consumption and approach with Nature need radical changes. Enough.

Why would anyne seriously have such an agenda exactly? It's not about the changes themselves, but how fast they are occuring. What is it? Can't sustain life without being careless and with effort? Poor baby.

People like you are annoying and a danger to society, they see conspiracy everywhere, every time, even with irrefutable evidences.

A few days ago it was 38,2°C (!) in Poland. It's incredibly high temperature in this region of Europe in June. This month was probably warmest on record in my country - normally in June there are periods of cool weather (below 20°C during a day) but this months it's warm or hot all the time. Obviously climate change has been taking place for many decades and recently warmest years worldwide are recorded very often. When I hike in the Alps, see the glaciers and compare to their historical images, the difference is great. For example, over the last 30 years Mer de Glace in Mont Blanc massif lost sbout 100 meters (!) of thickness. In 1988 there was a cable car that went down to the glacier and since then they had to add stairs (with almost 400 steps).

Me:
We are destroying the planet, every scientist says so

Most people out there:
Don't worry, don't believe those f*cking scientists, they don't know what they're talking about. God will adjust the thermostat when it'll be needed

Me:
God was invented by humans, because they were afraid of death

Most people out there:
See, that's what I just said

Oh, yeah, why no one was talking about weather anomalies when few weeks ago Roland Garros had been played mostly in +12-+17 range?


It has been pretty mild, even rather cold June here in NY. Prevailing joke was:
- why didn't you go to Atlantic shore this last weekend?
- my ice scratching toolkit is already in storage

Last couple of days though was a bit of a mild heatwave, around +32.
