It’s so hot in Spain that manure self-ignited, sparking a 10,000-acre wildfire

I lived in Europe most of my childhood (as an American)
The first thought I had when I heard the story, was I bet it smelled so bad.

I know Americans bathe way too much, but God bless them for it. The people over there
eat a very high dairy diet and they smell, they reek, and they bathe very little. In very hot weather it is
suffocating.

I think that you may find that things have changed over here in Europe regarding people’s personal hygiene since the middle ages JAG.

I think the Ozone is thinner over Spain. You add that to the 115 degree air temp, and just a few minutes outside makes your skin hurt.. and eyes burn if you don't wear sunglasses.


NOAA publishes global ozone maps every day. Here is the one from yesterday:

www.ospo.noaa.gov...

As you can see, the Ozone layer is thick in the entire northern hemisphere--generally above 300 Dobson Units, where 220 Dobson Units would be considered the baseline.

I know that you have to dry hay out properly before it gets baled or it can self-combust. It may just be that in Europe things are hotter than they're used to so that things that would ordinarily ignite when damp in the middle and compacted are doing so and they just aren't used to it happening.

I recall the last time Europe had a brutal heat wave. They didn't have many A/Cs because they usually didn't need them, and many who died did so because a lot of people in emergency services took vacations to escape the heat by hitting the oceans.

Yeah, so basically, they're having a proper US midwestern style summer over there and it's totally not what they usually have by about 40 degrees.

You mean the heat wave that is almost 3 standard deviations away from the statistically significant mean? I don’t expect you to realize the importance of that variation, but hey, the US Midwest is experiencing flooding that rivals, and many cases surpasses, the ‘93 flooding (surely, you and your ever infinite knowledge and wisdom of the Missouri/Mississippi/Platte) that could never be replicated, huh? Right? Once in a 100 years is one thing, but once in 500 years, twice (2019 and 1993 are considered by the USACE 500 year events) in 25 years is shear liberal, misrepresented, doom porn, amirite??

Please, for the sake of your own integrity refute any of what I asserted (they’re facts, but I’ll give you enough rope to hang yourself with ideological failings).

Hopefully the resident genius you’re corresponding with has the chutzpah to challenge me and the integrity to cry ‘uncle’ and submit to an unbiased, unfettered truth.

Lol.

Those temps are hot but not incredibly so.

It is a heat wave but in Australia we get those temperatures every single summer.

Oh, they broke a record. If I could trust the media and the Government reporting of temperatures I would believe it but I am not convinced.

Wait a few weeks and watch for the push on climate change and the new laws on heat waves.

P


It was 1930 when they had a reported temperature of 50 C or 122 F. There are several other times it has been hotter so yes you are correct to doubt anything from certain government sponsored/directed news sources youtu.be...
