What could possibly be causing the massive breaking of hot temperature records in Europe? “It’s a (#climate) mystery.”

July 7th, 2015 · No Comments

Decade to decade, the world is experiencing ever hotter temperatures.

In a ‘normal’ world, humanity’s vast array of weather monitoring and recording devices would be seeing fluctuation between warmer and cooler.

Across the calendar, there are far more hot temperature records being broken than cold temperature records.

In a ‘normal’ world, there should be (a) a rough balance between new high and low temperatures and (b) each year of records should make it less likely that there will be new records (ever harder to be far out on the normal distribution curve to ‘set’ a record).

Europe (and so many other places around the world) is experiencing yet another set of massive breaking of high temperature records.

In a “normal” world, this isn’t something that would be encountered by the same generation … time after time.

All this makes one wonder what is causing this …

As per Shakespeare in Love, “it’s all a mystery.”

After the fold, take a look at what is happening across Europe. Or, how about Canada Burning? What about the western United States? Not to mention the >1,000 dead Pakistanis.

It’s all a mystery.
