Study: Temperatures go off the charts around 2047
SFGate.com ^ | 10/9/13 | Seth Borenstein - AP

Posted on 10/09/2013 1:54:03 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

WASHINGTON (AP) — Starting in about a decade, Kingston, Jamaica, will probably be off-the-charts hot — permanently. Other places will soon follow. Singapore in 2028. Mexico City in 2031. Cairo in 2036. Phoenix and Honolulu in 2043.

And eventually the whole world in 2047.

A new study on global warming pinpoints the probable dates for when cities and ecosystems around the world will regularly experience hotter environments the likes of which they have never seen before.

And for dozens of cities, mostly in the tropics, those dates are a generation or less away.

"This paper is both innovative and sobering," said Oregon State University professor Jane Lubchenco, former head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, who was not involved in the study.

To arrive at their projections, the researchers used weather observations, computer models and other data to calculate the point at which every year from then on will be warmer than the hottest year ever recorded over the last 150 years.

In the summertime, right? That’s been my experience as well.
If things go the way they usually do, it should get cooler here.

Well, seeing as we are in a cooling trend for the last 16+ years they didn’t (couldn’t) predict, I won’t hold a lot of stock in their fake forecasts.

They keep making far-off predictions.

Far off being the key.

Then when the time eventually arrives, they dismiss the now “old” prediction as old news. As not serious.

And then they make new far-off predictions again.

Well, enjoy the cold, losers.

What were their projections in 1995? We don’t ever hear about the Chicken Little doom and gloom prognostications that never materialized. How can you attach any credibility to what they are saying? They are always wrong.

This morning it was 65 degrees, but by 2pm the temperatures had risen to 85 degrees. If this warming “trend” continues, it’ll be 100 degrees by midnight. As the temperatures continue to warm, it’ll be 10002324023 degrees by Oct 10, 2047!

Not long ago a local Seattle TV news babe reported on a March storm in the Cascade Mountains which caused snow, flooding, mudslides, etc.
At the end of her report, she whined "When will this wicked winter weather end?"
I thought to myself, "Springtime?"

I don't remember, but I do remember that in 1980 they predicted that in 5 years every family in the country would have at least one family member who had died of AIDs...

Now I just pay no attention to "them" or their rantings, regardless of the subject.

One of the first thing you learn in statistics is that extrapolation between two points does not extend to infinity, yet here they go again, extrapolating to infinity.

They sure do. We were supposed to be overpopulated, assholes and elbows 30 years ago. The ice caps were supposed to have been melted several years back.

They keep shoveling the BS and the brainless general public keeps lapping it up (plenty of roughage in their diet I guess).

I'll be old to care in 2047.

Besides it can't happen. In 2047 obama will still be living in the whitehut, and everything that causes glo"bull" warming, will have been outlawed.
There is no way the people in the US could have caused this global crises. I am sure obama will still blame it on Bush, and the evil GOP.

The more salient point:

The 2047 date for the whole world is based on continually increasing emissions of greenhouse gases from the burning of coal, oil and natural gases. If the world manages to reduce its emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases, that would be pushed to as late as 2069, according to Mora.

What ever happened to the coming ice age they talked about in the 70's?

Bunch of overpaid idiots. Do they work for the government?

Wait, one particular city will be the first place to get hot? Then other cities start to get hot??

But not the whole world.

Hmm don’t places set “record” temperatures all the time? Won’t most places in the next 40 years?

This is based on beating 150 years of recorded temperatures. Not the hottest “ever”. We all hear our towns or states setting new “records” all the time.

Will there be any record cold temperatures during this same time? Of course.

Nice quote from Mickey Mann of PSU. He of the hockey climate model.

There has been no temperate increase but rather a decrease for the past 13 years. They can’t even admit to that real fact not a computer model.

Of if we get to 2047 I will be 102 years old. I gave caring long before that

You can't get that kind of heat on tropical islands and ignore melting ice caps and rising seas. It can't be one without the other.

So logically, one shouldn't worry about the temperature in Kingston because Kingston would be long underwater by then, so they said.
