  1. It looks like only geo engineering could have any chance of undooming us from more than +2C global warming

    1. Gray-Wolf


      I(t just worries me as that is how we got into this mess in the first place! I suppose this time around we will be very mindful of our impacts though?

      I am sure carbon capture, of various applications, will become widely available to us should we will it so ...... it is just getting that 'will' organised and I'm still afraid that it will take something truly horrible to garner it from the masses?

      No politician wants to commit to massive spending on this but once they are 'forced to' then it will not be a 'choice' ( free will) but a 'response' ( forced action)?

      The question is, what "force" would it take?  If it takes something devastating like a methane burp or the irreversible collapse of the remaining icesheets or all the rainforests or any combination of the above to "force" the world into action then even the most powerful and farfetched geoengineering won't save us from a runway greenhouse state.

  2. Please comeback Snowmaiden!  We miss you!

  3. It sucks that we can't edit out forum posts anymore...

      Only if we could edit other posters' posts...A nightmare for the mods, too.:D

    3. Dami


      that would be very very bad. 

      We need an edit thingy on status.:good:

    4. Paul


      Yep, would be nice to have an edit function on these, but the software doesn't allow it at the moment. It's still possible to edit posts, but only for a short time - more info here. https://www.netweather.tv/forum/topic/16103-need-help-on-the-siteforum/?page=140#comment-3574479

      I wonder if El Nino will make another comeback this year and wreck autumn again?  I bloody 'ope not...

    3. karyo


      It shouldn't be too strong this time based on the forecasts.

  6. Try and cheer us as soon as August is over this year if you can.  its ever so lonely when your absent.

  7. Thank you for your "Stop Dangerous Global Warming" thread.  That thread is my favourite ever!  I agree with you that Geo-Engineering will give us our best hope of avoiding disaster.  However I am deeply concerned that our time is running out fast.  The last 3 years have already been too hot for my liking but it puzzles me that the world is still in no hurry to change things around.  Surly the heat must be getting to everyone by now?  The way things are going with human nature and Global Warming I am not optimistic about the future.

      "but it puzzles me that the world is still in no hurry to change things around" - such is the power of the fossil fuel industry, sadly.

      @Lettucing Gutted, @Nick L Thank you for your constructive input and encouragement to this discussion. The reason I posted this thread was because I saw there was little discussion elsewhere on the Forum about how to mitigate AGW given that countries around the World are reluctant to impose heavy tariffs on companies and organisations that produce CO2 (which is understandable) and little other discussion as to how we might mitigate the effects of rising CO2 levels.

      It is a little sad that rather than provoke some serious discussion about proposed geo-engineering solutions, about the pro, cons and feasibility that some have felt it necessary to diss them out of hand with comments like "insane", "crazy idea" with one posting a clip of a pink fairy in fantasy land. Some folk do need to grow up!

  8. I hate these bloody named Atlantic storms!  The curse of "Winter" 2015/2016 lives on!

  9. Where about to go from Atlantic mildness to continental mildness...  I'm not sure which one I hate more.

    1. weirpig


      i prefer the dry option but to be honest its hardly been mild 

    2. William Grimsley

      Continental warmth is much better than Atlantic warmth.

    3. I remember Atlantic 252

  10. Scott's video thread has gone now.  :(  forum.netweather.tv/topic/84179-scotts-historic-weather-videos

    That's a pity because I really loved Scott's historical weather videos.  They were really great.

    Here's the stupid error that came up:-




    1. Mokidugway


      Scott was a pain in the neck


    2. Lettucing Gutted

      Yeah he even gave me hell in November.

  11. Are you not bothering with a winter forecast this year Steve?  I see you've changed your profile name for the first time ever Steve?

    It's ashame you don't do your winter forecasts anymore.  I've always loved your seasonal forecasts.

    1. Steve Murr

      Steve Murr

      Thanks -

      No real point any more- Data not sufficient & total sum of info available beyond current capacity to forecast for this little island!

  12. I want an admin to start a live chat wiith me please.

  13. It will take a miracle to get a decent winter now!

      Cheers Karyo; I don't think I ever paid much attention to his posts as that isn't a forum ID that I particularly recognise.

    3. solarcycle


      Is this poor humour or poor trolling or just an utter moron?



      Or why worry about it, or why worry about it, or why worry about it! Blimey!

  14. Come on Steve Murr cheer us up! After a false good start with September, autumn 2015 is shaping up to be another boring joyless mild season, again...

      Most boring year I can remember weather wise, August storm only redeeming feature.

    4. Yarmy


      MOD thread's been fine since the ramp thread was introduced. Daft posts get moved so what's the problem?

      Nick, it is you who is jerking me off now! At first the weather was jerking me off! ^Karyo yes I'm afraid it is El Nino, again. Summer Sun northern blocking is indeed present but it is not even influencing us thanks to El Nino. Just like 1997/1998.

    3. IanR


      there will be some deep cold at times

    4. Lettucing Gutted

      Lettucing Gutted

      Yeah maybe 4 days of -14C minimums but +14C maximums for the other 86!

      A little bit of heat?

    3. Bottesford


      I also have a full week of work in my top floor apartment which will no doubt be well into the 30s. But I still massively prefer it to last weeks chilly, damp & grey northerly rubbish. My chillies, tomatoes & peppers are also smiling at the prospect! And then come the weekend I'm off to a nearby lake for a day of drinks & swimming! Perfect.

      ^Karyo, the air that is coming is Maritime Tropical air to put an end to all Maritime Tropical air!.

  18. You beat me to it with your ideal year bro! lol!

  19. I hate these months that tease us with being the coldest for a long time only to finish average or even above in the end!

      Anyone who wants cold weather in the summer months. just pretend because it annoys people who love the warm summer months.. whats the word you call them? oh yeah sadists..

    3. Bottesford


      Does seem warmer than average months tend to fall in the cooler half of the year and vice versa!

      weatherguru14. If there is one thing that makes me bloody goddamn mad more than mild/hot weather, it is wise crackers like you and cheese shooting me down in flames! I am sure they are the same members that annoy cold fans in the middle of winter.

  20. Hi blast I haven't seen you for a long time! I think Piers Corbyn really jinxed May 2012 when he said it would be the coldest for 100 years. I haven't believed any of his forecasts since.

    1. Relativistic


      Wow, never realised these posts were even here, so sorry for the late reply. I don't think Corbyn's forecast for the bank holiday will come off, he said it would be "fine". I still find his methods very intriguing though.

  21. The sooner this so-called spring ends the better. I hate it already! 2013, now that was a spring!

    1. cheese

    3. Richard2901


      It was the first half of Spring 2013 that was awful. 2nd half was decent. This Spring is proving very tedious and April seems to be turning into yet another month with average temperatures day in day out after more variation at the start of the month.
