This is the warmest time of year in most of the U.S. And if we continue to pump heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, it’s going to get even warmer — not only in the summer, but throughout the year.

“How warm?” is the obvious question. So we’ve taken a look at how the number of extremely hot days are projected to increase in a variety of cities by 2050 and 2100 if emissions continue to grow unabated.


I don't really know if green house gasses are causing global warming but something is.
In fact I'm glad...I hate cold weather and winter. Now however in the mile high Rockies the temp. is 100 degrees and my pickup overheated and left me stranded on the interstate until I called triple A and they came and cooled me down. They said they have been busy all morning long with stranded cars due to overheating. So there is a downside.

Another downside might be the effect extreme heat has on agriculture, the ocean currents, the jet stream and extended droughts like California is experiencing right now.

I know the west and south part of the U.S is warmer,
but it's looking good in the northeast! I'm not too fond of hot,
muggy weather!

Working on yet another mild summer here where I live in the SE part of the US:



We've yet to hit any triple digits. Tomorrow looks like it may be the hottest day so far this summer.

But it's all pretty normal. Since 1989, I've seen the summers cycle back and forth, some hot, some mild, some a mix.

I don't buy it at the moment. Climate always changes. That story was just more climate doom porn as far as I'm concerned. It's all based upon a computer model, and as we all know, computer models rely upon the GIGO method.

And while the western US is getting slapped down with drought, the eastern half is doing fine. As a matter of fact, it's actually a bit chilly with the artic vortex lowering our temps. Still a bit of summer to go though, so we'll see.

Huh....we have only had like five days of summer here where I live this year so far. I think that they need to send some of that heat over here for a couple of weeks so the ground can warm up from last winter. We have had frost warnings a couple of times this July.

I knew they would screw us with the global warming. How come the good things are always kept from us yoopers. We have been waiting for global warming to come for years.

We're having a normal to cooler than normal summer here. Last summer was normal, and the summer before that was a real scorcher. That particular year was also one of only two summers I can remember in my life where we lived through sustained triple digit heat for long stretches.

Now, I can buy that urban areas my be warmer because there is more concrete and asphalt. Urban develop holds in more heat - the heat island effect. But what is the countryside experiencing?

It is cold in my city.
We've had the fewest days over 90 F in 143 years.
It's like autumn here
The AC has been on about 3 times

Lower Lake Michigan here.

Water levels dropping.

Why don't they stop injecting water underground?
That's the engine they're fiddling with.
And why is bono silent about this?

Putin earned his sinkholes, wink.

It's getting to the point where a warm day/season/ is an affront to people simply because of the politics involved. lol.

My opinion? Yes, it's warming up. Globally.

To think that the crap that comes out of smoke stacks and car pipes isn't doing anything to the environment is tantamount to saying that cigarettes are actually good for you.

-It's all about the politics and whom you vote for I guess.

Normally this time of year its about 40C here. This year we hardly go above 25C. Pfthhhhh.

I hate pollution but dont think taxes will sort out this mess.

I'l start believing the 'official' climate change story once the universities stop lying to us and the govts around the world start activley stopping deforestation in the amazon. It is not too hard to understand that if CO2 is the issue, we need more trees. Yet no Govts are proposing this. WHY??? Why are they promoting fracking? Why still promoting nuclear power? Im not suprised people deny the climate is changing. Our Govts hypocracy is to blame for that.

I don't buy it just yet either. The eastern-half of the U.S. continues to have one of the coolest summers on record so far.

What does that say that the leaves are falling in JULY??? We had a very early Spring, summer and now, we have the fall "stickers" already. The monsoons seem to be over, when they usually last into almost September. We usually have a monsoon every afternoon, but it's dry and HOT.

Besides, warm weather is only one of many effects global warming is having.

I'd have to agree with you there. All this data is modeled over..what.. a hundred year period? A truly accurate model would take into account the last 10,000 years, A hundred years is just a heartbeat in the life of this planet.

Went and found a page that has temp data for where I live going back to 1901. Only goes up to 2008 however.

I was wondering if there are cycles here, because in the 26 years I've lived here, I swear that there are some, with the temps, type of seasons, plants and trees.

The temperature data is all over the place, and is quite interesting looking. Pay attention to the average highest temps for each year for the month of July:

Weather History for Aiken, SC

I think there is a cycle there, but I'd want the missing 6 years (2009 - 2014) and then graph it.

Coolest Summer On Record In The US
Posted on July 26, 2014 by stevengoddard

The frequency of 90 degree days in the US has been plummeting for 80 years, and 2014 has had the lowest frequency of 90 degree days through July 23 on record. The only other year which came close was 1992, and that was due to dust in the atmosphere from Mt Pinatubo.

100+ (37C "feels like 39C" here in Spain.)....so HOOOOT that I loathe just going to the store for 10 m


Edit: The fact that utilities here are ultra expensive doesn't exactly help either, but there is just no way NOT to run the A/C.
