Maybe should be in 'predictions' not here but i think we've had enough already to make this almost guaranteed.

Wildfires rage through California amid heat wave


That's just the first few i found and of course Japan is sweltering too.

The forecast certainly for Western and northern Europe is more heat with no let up in sight, so I can only expect there will be more and more fires as its tinder dry.

Farmers are cutting hay for winter feed and yields are down 30-50% amongst the ones i know BUT even worse, as there is no grass, they are having to use it now to feed their livestock so going to be a tough winter. Arable farmers are also saying the same with crops drying out and dying before they can be harvested or with very low yields.

Might be time to plant a few veggies or extra's if you already have.

For those in UK or similar climate www.thompson-morgan.com... but easy enough to find what works for you.

Here's hoping those of us who need it get a few days of rain soon.

I've read about this, lately in fact. What I read had to do with a polar shift.

And there isn't a damn thing we can do...nobody knows if this is normal progression or due to our negligence. We are too lazy to make the necessary changes to make a difference...thos protesting and patting themselves on the back are equally complisent..still using phones, diving cars, eating food from crops that poison the soil etc...

How would the polar shift cause this?

Genuinely curious.

it's just a hot year, that's all. Hot in the UK, but not that hot in some places. Hot in Japan, but again in northern Japan it's not that hot either. Fires here and there due to the lack of rain, but there's wild fires every year.

Not wishing to sound negative, but it's too early to say whether this is the sign of a hotter world and therefore a repeated event, or just a one-off.

I am not smart, but i'd guess it has to do with the location of the equator. (just a guess)

You can be negative if you want too


As I said could even be a thread for 'predictions' but felt it wasn't much of a prediction and more of a given, given current weather patterns but still hope i'm wrong.

There has been a few fires in England this year... very unusual. In fact, I havn't heardof it happening here before, there was one started last Wednesday night in Wanstead Park which isclose to Epping Forest. Surprised it didn't start in Epping Forest instead. We have higher temps coming this week so maybe one will start there.. But it could also have ben caused by someone throwing a cigarette away and then the heat just caused a little spark to light the dry grass.

Oh there's always plenty here - bournemouth airport was semi closed for a bit yesterday due to a heath fire, canford heath (poole) was alight too but that burns every year and the kids just got off school so expect a lot more round here. Salisbury plain had a big fire a cple weeks back - closed the Devizes road so i had to detour, The New Forest has had a few already too but again that happens any dry year. Then we had those huge ones on the moors a few weeks back that were smoking out towns and cities Lancs. ? Also been a few in Wales just north of Cardiff and cant recall hearing of any in Scotland but they've had a bit more rain.

Cool here in Southwest Michigan. Wet spring and just the right amount of rain for the crops. Weather is a tough science. Lake Michigan has had cold water warnings.

It's absolutely beautiful down in Dixie. Nice and cool. Low to mid 90s, with 100% humidity.

We actually have a special name for it down here. We call it "weather".

Yes these are all weather events, and any area of the world can have unusual weather patterns from time-to-time. The difference now is that these unusual weather events are becoming more commonplace.

And taking a holistic view of global weather patterns, we're experiencing larger "sets" of unusual weather behavior. In other words, we're seeing a greater number of unusual wildfires, droughts, heat waves, and other extreme phenomena in different areas of the globe within the same season.

That's how this differs from the usually smaller sets of extreme events that have happened in the past.

Simply making preparations to deal with these extreme weather events is all we can do right now. Even if everyone immediately began adhering to procedures and policies to limit greenhouse gas emissions, we'll still be experiencing the effects of climate disruption for some time to come. Since that is not going to happen, we will need to get used to, and prepare for, more extreme weather events.

In Denmark we have had over 50 "summer days".
That is a day when we get more than 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees fahrenheit). usually we have around 10 of these days a year. Last real good summer we had, back in 2008. We had 20 something summer days.
We always have a wet summer, lots of rain! This year, NONE! and the weather news tells us that this will continue for some while. Tomorrow we will get 35 degress Celsius (95 degrees fahrenheit)

This is insane, i live in the cold north, with Sweden and Norway as neighbours - we have the same climate as them.

Why all this is happening, we can only guess, but it is happening - and i think, around the world, we will see a lot more of crazy weather phenomenons we are not used to. lets hope we all can adapt...

Forest fire in Finland has been put down, took few days tho. Actually weather has been so hot and no good rain for weeks and forecast do not see it cooling down yet. All you need is someone who lighten the match and throw it down.

Last time similar summer was 2010 so it is not doom day porn.

When are they reaching Pennsylvania? I'm in the Northern Hemisphere right?

C'mon man. It's not like wildfires just started happening recently. They used to be a lot worse because nobody would fight them, they'd just burn out of control.

Your firefighters mainly seem to be helping other states:

edit to add. I'm not saying we haven't had them before just this year is shaping up to be worse than normal in a lot of places.

We've had one the nicest summers in recent memory in the North West. Temps have been in the mid 20's for weeks on end.

Had some Moor fires which raged for a while, could smell burning over most of Greater Manchester. Last few days it's been overcast and occasional showers and cooler at about 20c.

Reservoir levels are low here due to lack of rainfall over the last few months, and we're having a hosepipe ban starting on a week or so. We're different to other parts of the UK as we rely on water from reservoirs and don't really use aquifers.

Climate maybe changing but I don't think anyone's a 100% sure what's causing it. Trying to model all the different interactions both on earth and from space should be a top priority. Probably is us like, but I doubt it 100% just caused by Co2.

Greenland apparently had record snowfall. Birds couldn't nest and reproduce this summer due to a metre of snow.
And they keep saying 'global heatwave' on the news.
