    Looks like a 79% chance of a neutral spring followed by a 55% chance of La Nina this summer.

    there's tall clover up the street at my corner store.

    The books say to trim your rose bush after the first freeze, but then first freeze barely touches it and spring immediately commences in south central Texas.

    The plant never went dormant, it makes no sense to pull off the leaves or prune the bush, which after all survived 3 bad freezes and two brutally hot summers. My inclination is not to cut the rose bush at all.

    ing 87 tomorrow like we were deep into April already. LOL spring in January and late spring in February. The trees didn't even lose their leaves until those 3 cold days in January, so basically had 3 days of winter.

    Climatologists predicted just this.
    Wild fluctuations in temp with very cold and very hot spells along with the overall global temp rising.

    There is one good bit of news. I have read that some climatologists that believe the world CO2 output did not increase in 2023 and may have even dropped a little. Still to be determined.

    I think I've worn a jacket like 5 times this winter.

    A few cold days back in early December too. That's about it. Sucks ass knowing the A/C will be running for a lot of the day tomorrow, late February.

    But hey, at least Darrin will get to use his pool by spring break

    Yeah I'm skeptical that the world c02 output went down any.

    I haven't bought a jacket in years since all you need these days is a sweatshirt on the 2 or 3 cold days we typically get in winters now. Ugh and the forecast for today has crept up to 89.

    Profiteering Hampers U.S. Grid Expansion Private utility companies are blocking new interregional transmission lines

    The United States is not building enough transmission lines to connect regional power networks. The deficit is driving up electricity prices, reducing grid reliability, and hobbling renewable-energy deployment.

    At the heart of the problem are utility companies that refuse to pursue interregional transmission projects, and sometimes even impede them, because new projects threaten their profits and disrupt their industry alliances. Utilities can stall transmission expansion because out-of-date laws sanction these companies’ sweeping control over transmission development.

    As we increasingly electrify our homes, transportation, and factories, utility companies’ choices about transmission will have huge consequences for the nation’s economy and well-being. About 40 corporations, valued at a trillion dollars, own the vast majority of transmission lines in the United States. Their grip over the backbone of U.S. grids demands public scrutiny and accountability.

    Ugh 99 already being forecast here for Wednesday and Thursday. Our average first day of 100+ is around June 20th, but looks like we may hit it as early as May 8th.

    Fuelled by climate change, the world's oceans have broken temperature records every single day over the past year, a BBC analysis finds.
    Nearly 50 days have smashed existing highs for the time of year by the largest margin in the satellite era.

    Planet-warming gases are mostly to blame, but the natural weather event El Niño has also helped warm the seas.The super-heated oceans have hit marine life hard and driven a new wave of coral bleaching.

    The analysis is based on data from the EU's Copernicus Climate Service, Copernicus also confirmed that last month was the warmest April on record in terms of global air temperatures, extending that sequence of month-specific records to 11 in a row.

    Increase in the frequency of wild fluctuations.
    This costs a load of money. Red team worried about the deficit is so hollow.

    Nothing to worry about. We've been in the red for 25 years and the world didn't come to an end like they said it would.

    One thing that has been striking about historical forecasts related to climate change is how conservative they have been, on the whole.

    Environmental modeling re: global temperatures and deglaciation has come up notably short of measured change.

    ...big deal. Your side doubles down and just sits on the GD panic button in response.

    Grow up.

    The trees in my neighborhood still hadn't lost their leaves until those three cold days in mid January, and then it has been spring since. Though pound me in the ass summer looks to be here week after next. God I hope this summer isn't as bad as 2022 or 2023, but it looks like it'll start earlier than 2023 (nowhere near as early as 2022, though 2022 had a shockingly average August).

    Ugh first big heat dome of the year coming this weekend and sticking around until at least the end of the month, looks like a good chance of getting an early start on the road to the threepeat for worst summers here.
