Over the past decade, scientists have become more confident in linking heat waves to climate change. As with other extreme events, scientists can?t say that climate change caused a specific heat wave, but they can say it made the heat wave more likely to occur.
Researchers from World Weather Attribution, an international group that analyzes extreme weather events for links to climate change, found that a deadly June heat wave that blanketed much of Western Europe was up to 10 times more likely in our current warming climate than in a simulated world in which there were no greenhouse gas emissions from human activities.

Since the first attribution study (Stott et al., 2004) was published, the science of probabilistic event attribution has seen formidable advances, not least through the work done at climateprediction.net.

Solar Stormwatch is back!

Hi there,

We've just launched Solar Stormwatch II.

This new, improved version of the project needs you to track solar storms through space to improve space weather forecasts.

Solar Stormwatch II uses data from the NASA STEREO mission to track eruptions of material from the solar atmosphere as they expand through the inner solar system. Help us improve our tracking techniques by tracing the outline of the storm in each image.

Get involved again at www.solarstormwatch.com.

Thanks,

Chris & the Solar Stormwatch Team

well, I don't know what pommy stuart had in mind, but I'm thinking it would take a very special ghost to survive the heat in

Lkasbet, Morocco

I had Lkan in mind where the weather would probably be nicer.   ;)

Why the San Diego sank The ship was hit by a mine in the port engine room which flooded along with Number 8 fireroom. E. Keble Chatterton in one of his books points out that the bow wave of a ship will sometimes push a mine out of the way and it will swing back and hit the ship midships. The ship soon listed to 17.5 degrees. A ship this size with a centerline bulkhead between the engine rooms will list badly do to a mine hit like this unless the crew starts counterflooding really fast. The ship continued to list until water started coming in the gunports on the side of the hull which flooded the ship even more and increased the list and caused the ship to capsize.
