    Default Weather question: when did Indiana become Texas

    I must admit I've never been to Texas, but this is how I imagine the weather. Every day high above 90 degrees. Where a high of 92 is a cool down. Where we don't get any rain - don't bother looking at the forecast - it isn't going to rain.

    Thank God for A/C, otherwise I would move I really would.

    Ya I have withdrew from my remaining Golf tourneys for the Summer I just cant play in heat(I have seizures and the heat or my body overheating makes me have them). Really bad summer for me just when my game was coming along we turned into FL in the Summer just sucks especially for farmers. I normally practice 3-8hrs a day when the weather is in the 80s but I cant do much more than a half hour in this heat.


    It did rain here for the first time in 2 months and it rained pretty good.

    It reminds me more of Mogadishu Somalia. Triple degree highs with high humidity. I spend 10 minutes outside doing minor yardwork and I am soaked. I hope it cools down before Friday a little bit. I have to work and we should be guaranteed to have at least one battery to change or some wiper blades.

    We don't have the humidity here in San Antonio and further west. We were in Houston last month and it was like being back in Indiana it was so humid.

    The worst humidity I've ever experienced was in San Cristobal, Venezula. The 2nd through 5th worst were all in Houston, Texas.

    The problem I have is figuring out why when we set these weather records, or match them, or approach them there are so many that are 100 year's old. Shouldn't the records all be only a few year's old if not just month's old to draw parallels with global warming?

    That, and it's 'global warming' during heat waves and 'climate change' during cold spells, ice storms, and snow storms....

    But... yeah... It's hot...

    Well for one thing Global Warming is an ill-defined term at this point. What it really means is that as the overall warming of the atmosphere introduces excess moisture
    into our climate. Which in turn leads to more extreme weather events. So dry months turn in to droughts, wet months leads to excessive rain and flooding.

    We had a very mild winter last year but with lots of moisture with rain and snow. But it was not cold enough for the snow to stick. I'm looking for the same pattern this year.

    Well, a few minutes of research would answer this question if you took some initiative and tried to educate yourself on the most important matter of our time. What we are experiencing is climate change brought about by an average increase in air temperatures as a result of rapidly increasing carbon dioxide atmospheric concentrations. That does not mean it is going to be hot all the time or that there won't be cold days.

    Of course. Welcome to Indiana..... If the ground caught on fire, they would deny global warming. The rest of the world trumps you conservatives. There is global warming and humans are causing it....

    You may never have heard my little speach OlBlu so here goes.

    I worked 40 years in research for a major pharmaceutical company located in Indy. Had I or one of my coharts massaged data the way the scientists did in East Anglia, we would have been fined and/or imprisoned. The company would have been fined 100's of millions of dollars and possibly been handed a poison pill order essentially telling us to cease business. Every scrap of data we ever turned over to the government or published would have been scrutinized and the data supporting each and every one of our products would have been re-evaluated. Yet, nothing has happend to those scientist and their data is still being used in other publications supporting the concept of Global Warming. (note: they have been humiliated by this exposure so I guess they have suffered some)
    Not to mention that 25 years ago it was global cooling they fretted over.

    BTW...if you really believe this myth, why do you drive around in a motorhome? If the government really believes in greenhouse emissions, why do they allow the destruction of even one tree? Oh, and I drive a Prius (it's being conservative....I'm living within my budget).

    Prepare to have your mind blown.

    Global cooling was a fringe concern and represented a tiny portion of the scientific opinion on the direction of the Earth's climate. Yet somehow climate deniers think global cooling was the dominant opinion in the scientific community. Nothing could be further from the truth. And most global cooling conjectures were based on the consequences of mass emissions of aerosols, which block sunlight and were much more highly used in the mid century than they are today.

    The significant majority of CO2 emissions come from coal burning power plants, not vehicles.

    Greenhouse emissions are not a matter of belief- the increasing concentration of atmospheric CO2 is not DEBATABLE. Since when does the federal government have control over the fate of every tree in the country? You can't be this naive.

    The Climategate matter to which your refer was a completely hyped and blown out of proportion matter that was only given legs by right wing politicians and climate skeptics. All inquiries into the matter found no falsification of data or misrepresentation of results. Case closed.

    It's been this hot and dry before. It'll be this hot and dry again. We'll also have a cold and wet summer again soon. At that point will we be experiencing global cooling?

    No you be experiencing the cyclical nature of El Nino and La Nina. Which most of the US is affected by and thus easily like to deny the idea of Global Warming and Climate change.

    We'll just be experiencing the cyclical nature of weather! Weather changes. Sometimes it's warm. Sometimes it's cold. It's been that way millions of years. Did people cause the ice age? No. It was just cyclical weather. We'll have another one of those eventually too. I suppose global warming is true in the sense that we've been in a state of global warming since the last ice age ended. But it isn't due to us.

    Wow, so you are a climate scientist then? How many years have you been studying this matter? Where have you drilled for ice core samples to gain direct knowledge of historical atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations?

    Give me a break. I'll defer to the PhDs with DECADES of intense study on climate that overwhelmingly (99.99%) conclude that mankind is responsible for the climate change this planet is experiencing. Atmospheric CO2 concentration is about to surpass 400 ppm- CO2 is a well known greenhouse gas. How did it get to be so high? Not by any natural occurrence that's for sure. It is due to coal burning power plant and vehicle emissions combined with massive deforestation that reduces the amount of CO2 the planet can absorb. Ocean acidity has increased at alarming rates (because CO2 forms carbonic acid when it mixes with water) jeopardizing the existence of vitally important coral reef systems. Are you going to say that natural factors caused this?

    Gents, remember to hydrate when your out in these oven conditions. Also make sure you're doing the Gatorade or Powerade stuff and not just water. After working 12 years of football camps that is one of the things that really has stuck in my head.

    Really???



    rained a half inch Sunday evening and another inch yesterday. They stayed up working on my roof until the lightening was popping straight down in my neighborhood and then they went right back up there after the rain slowed. If I'd known that me putting a new roof on would cause it to rain I would have contracted the job weeks ago.

    I like water just fine...in it's frozen state, and with bourbon splashed over it.


    But after 12 years that's all you remember?

    Yeah, that's one of those I think a trip to the hospital may be in order times. Had a headache for two days and threw up solid for a day. Even the mighty 18 looked at me and said "Hey, you ok"? I didn't realize how bad I was until later in the evening.
