    This is more like it...a nice crisp day, it actually felt cold all day just like winter should.

    Ground temp reading a nice solid -4.2deg/C at 21:30hrs.

    On the Beeb news it reported that the new December max temperature of 18.7deg/C had been recorded on the 28th - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-50961612  - something called the Foehn Effect caused this unusual heat, interestingly the previous highest temp of 18.3deg/C was recorded way back in 1948 also in December...this got me curious to see that the previous and following years weather had been like...looks like they had a Greta Thunberg climate change emergency end of the world in two weeks crap back then too.

    Well Happy New Year from Austria, Schladming literally has been exploding for the last few hours, with the last 15 mins being utterly nuts. If you think Guy Fawkes night is the epitome of fireworks then you should bring in the New Year in Austria as they outdo that tenfold. Couldn't sleep even if I wanted to.

    Right mate. Are you going to suggest that climate science pointing to runaway global climate change isn't accurate? Are you actually going to go there?

    I believe the first link between carbon emissions and climate change was made around 1907 actually.

    I believe climate change is happening faster than the experts are prepared to admit.One beast from the east makes not an ice age but rising global temperatures mean a return to the days of Ivan the Red,who visited Greenland when Greenland was green.

    Is the global climate running away..???, are you saying its out of control heading for a disaster, what is the "normal" global climate is there records going back millions of years to compare to, do you know how long the climate cycles take from warm to cold and the effect the sun has on all this, there are countless factors that effect our global climate do we know for a fact that we know them all.

    I do accept that all the co2 and methane thats being pumped out is an issue and to regulate these emissions would be a good idea but to claim a global emergency is bullshit, the earth biosphere has suffered far worse climate changes in its past and seems to be able to adapt very well.

    As with a lot of other impending doom mongering its agenda driven and some even can show the statistics to justify their claims but as with all numbers statistics can be manipulated to show anything you like...right or wrong what is correct.

    I agree with Klippie though. But that's all I'm saying on it, already been enough arguments about this on other forums. Humans will sit around arguing forever about things which isn't really a lot of use ?

    Just popping in to say Happy New Year - very disappointed to find human enhanced climate change deniers in this forum, never thought I'd hear the likes!! Boo to you all, it's that kind of denial of science that will be the undoing of us all.

    I'm not being confrontatinal or rabid about it HC, I don't know know enough. I do know that weather is changing, seasons are moving, but I think well maybe it has done this before and we just didn't know... like when the Vikings found Greenland it was green, and then there's the medieval mini ice age, etc etc. I definitely do think we need to prep for this and learn how to deal with it.

    Can we please leave any climate change arguments to the relevant part of the forum? Bear in mind even there only  scientific based arguments are allowed. Thanks.

    Here milder and mostly cloudy today with the frost lifting just after the bells. Max was 6.4C .

    This is like saying, you can only talk about X in the study, or Y in the toilet. Playground rules.:wallbash:

    Hi HC. Forum rules are that climate change debates (arguments) outside of the climate change area will be moderated as they derail threads and end up with endlessly repeated opposing viewpoints. Any problems or alternative views take to the contact the team area where they will be considered.

    Thanks

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
