I wish we were experiencing "cloudless heat waves in the Great Plains"...in west central Minnesota we have had some heat but also severe storms every other day dumping inches of rain each time. We don't need the rain...lake and river flooding threatening homes. Why is this unusual and severe weather happening? When will it end? Everyone is concerned to say the least.
This is natural. The additional heat in the cities in the dome is being created by man-made urban heat islands.
How much longer do you think that the heat will last? Will it continue to get hotter? I have always heard the hotter the summer the colder the winter, Are we in for a bad winter also? I live in Troy, NC and I am wondering what are we to expect if this is true. I am ready for the heat to leave and the cooler weather to come back. Thought I would ask.
Typically the heat continues to be a problem through most of August, although I am hopeful for more rain for parts of the South.
And yes, there are a lot of indications that this winter will be really cold.
First: the Old Farmer's Almanac is the most useful tool in the hands of Americans today.
I had not heard of the Hadley Cell but hve figured out the principle on my own. I heard on PRM during the oil spill spoken by a geologist with the University of Florida that the BP oil well would never be capped. I agree, becuase of the rotational aspect of near the equitator centrifigual propulsion outward sling toward the rim of the plain in unison with that equitortial ring. You also have to add the temperture of the liquid, something like 600 degrees F and internal pressure due to compression and gravitational influence, plus, the containment of other gases in gaseous form and the inclusion of eroded materials that are like sandblasing materials shoved out of the well head at velocities of up to but not less than ten to one-hunred feet per second and a mixture weighing about ten pounds per cubic foot and as much as fifty or sixty pounds per cubic foot. What a canon that well head was til it fizzled out.
We are in a mess concerning our environmental conditions and nothing we are doing to control greenhouse gases is going to make an iota of difference after so much introductin of toxic and contminated chemistry adn volume of mass in teh atmosphere. It is going to take up to 500 years to make a small difference and up to two-thousand years to get any feedback at all that improvments are being obtained and another six-thousand years to beging to get some return on the investment of good environmental stewardship managment of our natural treasures. Amazing what Hadley figured out without computers, used pencil and paper and long hand math and calculations.
