Saturday's 84-degree reading was posted in Arkhangelsk, Russia, where average high temperature is 54 this time of year. The city sits next to the White Sea, feeding into the Arctic Ocean's Barents Sea. At Arkhangelsk, it was hotter on Sunday: 87. Locations in Russia set record-high temperatures over the weekend: 30 to 40 degrees above average. The warmth bled west into Finland at 77 degrees Saturday, the warmest temperature of the season. Abnormally warm conditions in this region stemmed from a bulging zone of high pressure centered over western Russia. This heat wave, a manifestation of the arrangement of weather systems and fluctuations in the jet stream, fits into what has been  hot year across the Arctic and most of the mid-latitudes.  In Greenland the ice sheet's melt season was a month early. In Alaska, several rivers saw winter ice break up on their earliest dates on record.

Terrifying! In the meantime, Doug Ford's very first move as premier of Ontario was to scrap every renewable energy program/project he could get his hands on, including a completed wind farm. He even ripped out an EV charging station at a railway station, just to REALLY get his point across.

While I am careful not to get too excited, the recent Green trend up here is fascinating, encouraging and MUST continue.

This is yet another article that takes the unscientific position that an extreme high temperature well above the average should be alarming. How much higher is this than the normal high for this time of year? Than the previous high? How long did the temperature stay above normal? Did it drop below normal? These are scientifically useful questions.

Well done! My sentiments precisely.


Maybe they just read no more than the headline and then form their opinions and reactions within seconds. But that is what scoffers and climate change deniers ALWAYS do. You should see some of the rabid reactions in the Climate Deniers' Facebook group~~~reminds me of some of the punks in my junior high school years who wanted to be bullies, but who then caved in right away to the slightest opposition (except the Deniers go on ranting and raving smugly, glad that they have a group of like-minded people who agree with them....). The absolute worst of these FB groups is Science Enthusiasts. I have never encountered such pathetic sick vicious scientific bigotry....



Why BBC stopped interviewing climate change deniers | The Investigators with Diana Swain The BBC has told its journalists they don't need to interview climate change deniers to balance their stories. What led the broadcaster to makes this move?

I most certainly did. That's why I could see the lack of a scientific approach to the data. It's a great example of the abandonment of science in the pursuit of alarm. If being scared gives you a thrill, please enjoy the story.

Can we all agree that climate deniers are akin to flat-earthers and to biblical fundamentalists who think the earth and all geological and biological history are equally 6000 years old?


Why should such blockheads even have a change to put their rants on the letters sections of sites like OpEd News?


I'm growing a f**king palm tree behind my house here just north of Philadelphia, because it's gotten so warm here that it's like coastal Virginia, where you can find 20 foot palms growing on the south side of homes, was 30 years ago. I figured, in a moment of black humor, that I would demonstrate climate change by growing the first palm tree in Pennsylvania in my yard.


When it's a little bigger, I'll invite climate denying nut jobs to come sit under it and ponder their idiocy. Maybe I'll have a sign nearby pointing them to the edge of the earth and warning them not to fall off.

There is a fundamental problem with concern over climate: dishonesty amidst hysteria. Climate IS a concern.

Who actually denies that climate changes? Republicans in the Senate admitted it does. This is falsehood, deliberate slander - creating a straw man.

A climate emergency? Nothing about Florida coastline sinking even begins to approach the threat of nuclear war - by design or accident. Tearing up treaties, encouraging proliferation, intensifying tension with Russia/China/Syria/Iran/Venezuela/North Korea......who's next?

Missiles that could get here in less than a couple hours trump climate concerns. Or SHOULD get priority attention.

Smart people are able to multi-task when it comes to solving or at least discussing one problem at a time, among the many.


I am not clear on what you are saying is "falsehood, deliberate slander."

I remember when Rolling Stone was new and an entertaining paper on the world of music, primarily rock. When did it become a leftist political paper?

Oh. let's see: that would have been about 40 years ago.


In the 1970s, Rolling Stone began to make a mark with its political coverage, with the likes of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson writing for the magazine's political section. Thompson first published his most famous work Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas within the pages of Rolling Stone, where he remained a contributing editor until his death in 2005. In the 1970s, the magazine helped launch the careers of many prominent authors, including Cameron Crowe, Lester Bangs, Joe Klein, Joe Eszterhas, Ben Fong-Torres, Patti Smith and P. J. O'Rourke. It was at this point that the magazine ran some of its most famous stories, including that of the Patty Hearst abduction odyssey. One interviewer, speaking for a large number of his peers, said that he bought his first copy of the magazine upon initial arrival on his college campus, describing it as a "rite of passage"


"It was first known for its musical coverage and for political reporting by Hunter S. Thompson. In the 1990s, the magazine shifted focus to a younger readership interested in youth-oriented television shows, film actors, and popular music. In recent years, it has resumed its traditional mix of content.

Rolling Stone Press is the magazine's associated book publishing imprint. Straight Arrow Press was the magazine's associated book publishing imprint, Straight Arrow Publishing Co., Inc. was the publishing company that published Rolling Stone."

Smart people are able to multitask? Irrelevant because THEY AREN'T !!! Democrats cheer on More War, More Hostility and allow perpetual war. Did Congress rebel at potential bombing of Russians in Syria? NO! Did Hillary nearly promise war with Russia? YES! (VFW speech).

The US fans the flames of toxic nationalism in Ukraine while Nuclear reactors crumble - because "Russia, Russia, Russia". Chernobyl 2.0 anyone?

This is absurd. There's no way that climate related issues even begin to compare. Where's your multitasking?

And dishonesty? Climate change deniers, climate change deniers........ regardless of the facts that scientific skeptics commonly ACCEPT that climate changes. Even Republican Senators.

You have missed my point. I am saying "smart" people can work both for reversing climate change as well as ending endless wars. Now do you see what I mean by "multitasking"? I hope so.


You really ought to watch Bernie's video on Republican opposition to fixing climate change, as well as the Rolling Stone, as well, so you might better comprehend this point of view.


I brought it up because you seem to want to dismiss or ignore climate change so that all hands can be on deck to end the obscene warring efforts.


By the way, I personally have written and worked tirelessly against US involvement in wars and in egregious military budgets for the past 45 years, and in the early days, in the mid 70's, put my life on the line, in the same Gandhi also did that.



CALCUTTA PEACE MISSION - GANDHI'S MIRACLE Gandhi had said that he would fast until the fighting in the streets of Calcutta was stopped. After about 73 hours the city was reported quiet and his fast ended.

No, You missed my point. THEY AREN'T MULTITASKING ABOUT THE NUCLEAR WAR THREAT. Is it because THEY ARE DISTRACTED BY EVENTUAL CLIMATE PROBLEMS?

There is profound apathy about the threat of nuclear war - underlined day after day by ever more threats of war while Democrats rarely object , amidst "Russia, Russia, Russia"

This is the equivalent of worrying about a leaking roof that might collapse one day while someone cocks a gun at your head. Are priorities even a concept anymore?
