    paris1.PNG london1.PNG Its is really hot in Europe today, they are having a huge heatwave!
    Soon even the roads will catch fire!
    But its not too late to change, their governments can make gas and diesel even more expensive, then the roads wont be needed. Could give them a rest for a few years, think of the savings in road maintenance alone.
    Double the prices should convince people of something, wait, they already did that.
    Living a better life is so overrated...

    I grew up in the 60's and 70's and we had really hot summer days too back then.
    We also had bad storms and hurricanes and crop failures and droughts.

    Well of course. But are you denying that GLOBAL temperatures are increasing? GlobalAverage_2018.png

    That's right, go ahead and ignore the fact that it was climate scientists who identified heat islands. Go ahead and pretend climate scientists are so dumb they don't know how to allow for that. Go ahead and imagine that climate scientists have some sinister motive for - as an entire muti-national, multi-ethnic, multi-religious group - to deliberately lie and manipulate for decades. Go right ahead and, by your mean spirited objections, threaten the welfare of billions. Go right ahead, but do not think for one millisecond that the future will forgive you.

    You do realise that the datasets "they" use are publicly available, right? Here, for instance, is the CRUTEM dataset for your downloading pleasure.
    https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/hadobs/crutem4/data/station_files/CRUTEM.4.6.0.0.station_files.zip

    It contains a file listing all the more than 10000 weather stations providing data and I can tell you with great certainty that not many of them are located in cities.

    Also, thermometers are really not that complicated and ever since Daniel Fahrenheit invented the mercury thermometer in the early 1700s we have been able to measure temperatures to within fractions of a degree.

    There are over 18,000 land and sea weather measuring stations around the world. The are in such places as Guyana, the Arctic, the Antarctic, and the rain forests of South America. Very few appear to be in in the areas of heat islands. Also,there have been scientifically accurate temperature devices going back over 200 years.
