Climatology.

Climatology.
La Nina; Was reading about La Nina in AAP yesterday. Looks like the northern hemisphere is going to cop a bashing, with droughts and cyclones to mention only two things.  

Here in Oz, all I took away was a lot more rain for Australia, which is usually welcome here down south. The rain might not reach us, but the extra water in the rivers will. Might be few floods.***

I remember thinking as I finishes the article ; "It's a good thing climate change is a hoax or we'd be in deep doo doo"  Angel


*** From a beloved poet, Dorothea MacKellar (I July 1885-14 January 1968)

Below is a clip with Dorothea reciting her famous poem "My Country". It's the full poem, which I can't remember ever having heard before. The images are stunning. I love it.

RE: Climatology.
Yeah, we’ve been told to expect a warmer and wetter summer here as well.

RE: Climatology.
I don't know if La Nina plays into it but today is the first day i have opened the windows because it's finally comfortable enough to do so. Usually the temps start to drop off some (especially at night) by mid-September so this is a month off. But then the heat of summer didn't start till a month later than it normally does. After the insane week-long freeze we had in February the weather has been very different from past years. I don't know what to expect for the fall and winter.

Warmer World = Wetter World

(I apologize if I am being simplistic here.)
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

Perhaps just smidge.

Not entirely sure the two go together.  Australia is the driest continent, yet has temperatures in desert areas of around 50+C. I have this perception that high rainfall is linked to high humidity, but I might be wrong

Within my lifetime, in this state the summer temperatures have increased  from an average of below 35C (90F)  to an average of around 35C, with a week  at a time of 42C  ( 107.6F)  and above.  Our summers have remained dry.  Only 1/5 of the state receives more than 10 inches of rain year.  Less than half of that has more than 16 inches.

Can't claim to understand much about the way rainfall works.  I was based in Malaysia and Singapore for 14 months (army, conscript). I remember the temperature a was steady 90F, and humidity always around 60% . Humidity at this time of year (spring) in South Australia is around 40%. This rises in winter up to 74%. That's when we get most of our rain.

RE: Climatology.
Warmer world puts more water vapor in the air. It doesn't always drop where we need it too or in the amounts we like.

This can mean more intense storms, flash flooding, larger snow falls in some places, droughts in others.

RE: Climatology.
What some people (Trump supporters) don't get, IMO, is the T-C feedback -- warmer temperatures means more CO2 going into the atmosphere, which means warmer temperatures, which means more CO2 going into the atmosphere, etc., etc. Such a scenario could mean that even if Humanity reaches a zero-emissions economy, we could already be in the very beginning of a inevitable and unstoppable death spiral.

Not just "wetter", but more wild fires, more extreme fluctuations in night and day fluctuations in temperature, more frequency in flooding, more intense snow storms, thunder storms, bigger hurricanes/ frequency of hurricanes, more disruption of commerce globally, more drought, ect ect ect.

Ah. So I'm in error?  No link necessarily between humidity and rain? Does it mean that other extreme weather events such as cyclones occur when the air is hot and dry?

The US has wild fires. We have bush fires.  We even have bushfire season every summer beginning in early October.. There are signs along roads warning of the level of danger, from mild to extreme. On extreme days outside fires are not permitted anywhere.

On such days children are not allowed out of doors because they burn into little crisps and blow away. 

WOW! Really?  oh, of course. Would I lie?  Angel
