Because there is a lot of heat in Hawaiian climate system. By contrast, the Arctic has very little excess heat – which is why the climate there is so calm and pleasant.
More CO2 = more heat trapped!
Heat is just one form of energy. So having more heat in system means having more energy in the system. And energy is what’s needed to DO STUFF. Like evaporate water or melt ice or warm up air or water. So, that’s what it gets used for – doing all those things: evaporating more water and making a “typical” storm bigger. Or a “typical” drought drier. Or a “typical” heat wave hotter.
You could think of having all that extra energy available as sort of like having extra money lying around. You could stash it away in the bank to use later, but most people would probably want to spend it and put that money to work – a faster, flashier car, a bigger house, more fancy gadgets and appliances.
So just like you can go into a neighborhood with lots of big, fancy houses and you know that means there’s a lot of money there, when you see a really big storm / wild fire / heat wave / drought, you know that means there’s a lot more energy there than a smaller such event.
This is why global warming means global weirding. All this extra heat / energy gets used to wreak havoc on our climate system and therefore on all of us, too.
So… can any of this extra heat be a good thing? Like a superhero who decides to use his powers for good, not evil?
It makes perfect sense. Send all these morons to the Arctic for their next holiday. The lack of extra heat must make the Arctic a veritable Garden of Eden.
