OK I saw a story on this and didnt think too much, then I saw another similar one and began to pay a little more attention.  Most of Europe has had a record heatwave, specially the UK, but what if it continues?  These 2 stories try address that:

Hot Century Ahead: Study Finds Onslaught of Heat Waves Now Inevitable
Report comes as North Asia temperature spike kills dozens in the midst of a blistering summer

A new study dishes out some very bad news about the global warming crisis.

It is too late to stop a "several folds" increase of deadly heat waves caused by greenhouse gases—and the floods, fires, and storms they bring.

The report comes as a record heat wave hits North Asia, killing dozens and sickening far more, flooding hospitals with heatstroke victims amid power shortages that are cutting off air conditioning in some areas.

Stand by for extreme weather. Prepare for heat waves on a scale that was once unprecedented. For once, there is no “if” in the forecast. Even if governments abandon fossil fuels everywhere, immediately and invest only in green energy, there will be new record temperatures.

The greenhouse gas emissions of the last few decades now mean that regions of the planet subjected to extreme heat will double by 2020 and quadruple by 2040

But of course, there's no such thing as global warming.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

well Ive just watched this vid (news story clips) about the current, 2013 heatwaves, Australia has really suffered and I wasn't quite aware how much so... so I guess all the Brits who moved there for the sunshine life... might be having second thoughts about that now




if you watch it all, it will have a few quotes to biblical prophecies at the end, sorry about that, but the content is good though - and I do not endorse or intend to promote...any prophesies

I have no idea what you mean about heatwaves.
It's a chilly 29 degree Celsius winter here.

There is no doubt in my mind there is a change in the weather. More snow more rain more hail and more tornados plus an increase in temp.

This has been the coolest Summer in my memory along the Gulf Coast.  Huge amounts of rain and about 6 degrees below normal.  I hope the Winter isn't warm :(

good news if you're fed up with living on a damp, soggy little island and fancy living on a sun-blasted east atlantic rock instead!

We had snow in our state this winter. Something pretty rare. Coldest winter in X amount of years. Seems to be going the opposite way for us haha.

Until summer comes... Probably end up being the hottest summer on record.

the UK has again broken heatwave records, well its own that is. I used to be a sun lover, now Im older, I cant stand the evening sticky humidity. OK we dont have it for long, a week or 2 of real hot and then the storms which always seem to follow heatwaves in the UK. Then they make floods as the ground is too hard to soak up the rains

Ive noted a defo change in weather patterns here. So have the crops and spring flowers that get fooled into blooming early, only for winter conditions to return for a week or so, very odd. Rain and cold I can deal with, thats part of being English!!  :lol:

This summer here has been much cooler and wetter than normal.  Last year at this time we were suffering from excessive heat and no rain.  People in Europe and Asian seem to be getting the heat this year.  Next year I guess it will be our turn again.  This is global warming at its best.

that means plenty of snow and drizzle, then, knowing the accuracy of long range forecasts.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.
