Alternatively, the coldest year for the rest of your life

No, we just left El Niño so there is s reasonable chance next year, maybe two years, are a little less warm. It gives the critics the chance to shout at the top of their lungs because we didn't break every record that year, warming is a hoax. To get walloped with a monster of a heatwave in three years of course.

Also the coldest for the next decades.

Man it’s so great how every year for like most of a decade this happens and we still have reams of dipshits all like “iT’s nOT SeTtLEd sCieNCe”

So great

Well, I'm not heating up the dirt myself. So they don't have to prove anything to me.... They gotta just deal with the temperature death limit. The critical "wet-bulb temperature" limit is generally considered to be 35°C (95°F) with 100% humidity. At 40C humans struggle and a little more and you'll not have to worry about them anymore 😉.

In the long run, nature heals itself 🌳

Perfect bad example... Dinosaurs. There are no more dinosaurs 🦕😔.

10,000 years later..

People. There are no more people. And the planet seems fine.

Dinos just had bad luck. We did this to ourselves.

Letstakealook

Yes, every year will continue to be the new hottest year.

Pennomi

Probably not, there are some short cycles like El Niño that will see some temporary heating and cooling. But the trend will always be upwards.

Huschke

I mean, the ocean temperature is unnaturally high, so I wouldn't get my hopes up. Maybe we'll get a few months that won't break records, but I wouldn't bet on it.

The predictions take that into account, no?

Until we reach peak and head into another ice age. We’ll have tens of thousands of years in cooler temps though.

Hottest year….so far!

Squiddly

Happens every year.

Other places must've been hot as hell as in the UK we actually had a slightly cooler June than normal compared to the average. The world climate is well and truly fucked then.

SlopppyEngineer

Western Europe is under the influence of La Niña making it cold. We're sitting here wondering where the summer went as crops refuse to grow properly because too cold and too wet while in other places people drop dead because of the heat.

Yeah my little part of the US has been below average the last couple of years too. It was hot this summer for one week.

Are you saying recorded temperatures are being made up?

fisco™🇬🇧🇺🇦

No, I'm saying that "here", it certainly wasn't the hottest June on record...

qisope

So which planet are you commenting from?

OrgunDonor

No he is talking about his own roughly 48km^2^ area.

Ignoring the fact that the earth is just slightly larger at 510,064,472 km^2^

fisco™🇬🇧🇺🇦 , edited

Ahhh so its been the hottest June within someone else's 48km2 patch...got it, thanks 👍🏻

Planet Denial.

To be fair, it looks like you're in Wales. The best you can hope for is "slightly less rainy".
