    Penguins won’t know what liquid water is…

    It’s currently 31% above normal (if my math skills are not failing me) , which seems like a lot. Our Dutch Met Office (KNMI) reported last week that this increase is caused by global warming. The news about this research is currently on their front page (in Dutch) :

    I’m no atmospheric physicist, but I would still appreciate if someone could define “normal” so there is a baseline to measure against. I got tired of asking after the 500th time and getting no answer or having my questions deleted.

  4. odds: 3.27E+150. It’s climate science.

    The Jurassic climate must have seemed pretty normal for a while there to your average Diplodocus. I wonder if they bought and sold Ceratosaurus credits or something.

    “Normal” dates allll the way back to 1979 when the satellites started to monitor it. It seems that the historic accounts of an ice free polar region were just made up to scare people.
