might interest you to know that ALL the planets in our solar system are heating up, and thats mopstly due to the suns most active period in a LONG time.

im sure theres already some threads about it here on ATS already

It's called summer. Sometimes they are hotter than others... for instance, look back to the 1930s and what was called the "Dust Bowl Era." It was very hot and dry.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say you are a young individual. After a few decades, you will have enough summers to know that some are hotter than others... some are cooler than others. It is all cycles...variations.

Some will cry "Global Warming" but that horse has been beaten enough. Especially after last winter... hey Al Gore, where's my ocean front property from all the rising oceans?

It's called summer.

Or you should say hi to climate change. North america is going in for rough ride.

high pressure over wide swath of north america, yup, pretty normal stuff here.

just a more southerly flow of air I assume. being trapped up north by a blocking low and the jet stream is extended north.

so kind of what you would expect

I agree. I'm 49 years old and this is the craziest weather I can recall.

Two strange things happened in the Twin Cities area in the last month. Things I've never heard of ever happening before (and I've lived here most of my life)...

1 - Minneapolis hit 104 degrees a couple of week ago. It was the hottest city in the entire USA. Minneapolis? What? Not Vegas, LA, Phoenix, Miami or even Dallas? Nope...Minneapolis, Minnesota. Hottest place in the entire country. That is NOT normal.

2 - This past week we had an insanely hot day with unbelievable humidity. The local weather stations were joking about how our Dew Point was higher than the Amazon that day. Seriously...a higher Dew Point than the Amazon!

Furthermore, I'm amazed at how wide-spread it is throughout the country. I've seen the maps and they seem seriously messed up to me.

On a final note, the other eerie thing about this pattern is how persistent it is. When these sort of brutally hot days arrived they would normally be gone in a day or two. My A/C has been on pretty much non-stop for a week now. I've NEVER had my A/C on for a solid week before.

Simply put, this doesn't strike me as a normal pattern.

One human life span, on average, maxes out at less than a century. Check out the geological records and even CO2 records throughout history.... the climate we see in our 'modern time' is abnormally stable compared to the rest of history. The world has always been a LOT hotter and a LOT colder than we know in our short lives.

This past winter everyone was freaking out about winter being colder than usual... guess they forgot about the ice ages.

This summer people are freaking out about it being hotter than usual... guess they forgot about prehistoric times.

No disrespect op, but we live such short lives in the scheme of things that it is unreasonable to place our human norms onto good 'old mother earth.

I guess it depends where you live, I'm in Ohio and it has been a perfectly normal summer (mid-high 80s), definitely not the hottest I've experienced.

Here in Texas we are in the worst drought we have ever been in. It is hurting our agricultural sector severely

You beat me to it lol. Thank you. We have always had this thing called summer. with it, it brings hot temps and thunder storms! Crazy stuff man! Now if we can just crack the case of the cold white flakes that fall later in the year!

It's been really hot here in Pittsburgh for the last week or so. A few upper 90 days with a higher "heat index". Did you know heat waves kill more Americans than all other natural disasters combined? I was so hot I started a thread about it


I'm not sure what to believe about the weather, but I think I lean twards the idea of our lifespan being so short, we couldn't possible know what normal is.

I know what you mean i live in texas we have drought just like yall. One of the biggest droughts in history. If their is no moister in the air then it will be hotter. Its seems brighter as well. I have lived in texas my whole life, I am used to heat but this is different. Its seems allot brighter out side. I have to squint my eyes, even while looking down.

Sounds like a good excuse for ice cold water melons, cool refreshing lemonade, home-made ice cream, sweet iced tea,...oh, and cold cantaloupes.... and swimming, and sitting in front of a box fan with nothing on but the radio and a cold beer... yup...sounds like summer.

Niburu making things warmer

or
It`s time for change and operation public reduction is kicking in gear using Harp.


or
Ok it`s not Harp but something just like it. Remember a while back Russia claimed we were messing with their weather. Well this is a payback don`t know what they call theirs though.


or
Remember the BP oil spill in the Gulf, Well oil really gets hot in the sun and that hotness is being blown North.


Actually you didn`t think it was going to be a fun ride to the end days of 2012 did you. Well hang tight it will only get worse.
now perhaps I may have hit the nail on the head with one of those but yes it is hot and that`s a fact I know for sure here.
