Shock News : Nature Is In Balance

A triple-digit high today is no error, said NWS meteorologist Kari Bowen.

“We are expecting those high temperatures for this area today,” she said. “The reason for that is the jet is up north, we have this big ridge of high pressure that’s building in, causing all the air to sink and heat up.

This is just crazy talk, but the fact that air is sinking and heating over Colorado, means that it is rising and cooling somewhere else. I have this bizarre theory that the mass and average barometric pressure of the atmosphere don’t vary much from year to year.

Regardless, 97% of scientists are 99% certain that CO2 causes heatwaves – rather than sinking air.

    High pressure; the Venus effect.
    The UK’s only occasional respite from the miserable clouds and the damp but it makes for a bum time if you are going paragliding..
