Hotter and hotter summers, extremely hot

Climate scientist James Hansen and team looked at summer temperatures over several decades. The New York Times charted the increases.

To create the bell curves, Dr. Hansen and two colleagues compared actual summer temperatures for each decade since the 1980s to a fixed baseline average. During the base period, 1951 to 1980, about a third of local summer temperatures across the Northern Hemisphere were in what they called a “near average” or normal range. A third were considered cold; a third were hot.

Since then, summer temperatures have shifted drastically, the researchers found. Between 2005 and 2015, two-thirds of values were in the hot category, and nearly 15 percent were in a new category: extremely hot.

The Great Red Spot

Let’s end the day with something more edifying than the Trump White House. Here is Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, as captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft during a final flyby before it crashes forever into the inky depths of the planet. Image processing by Roman Tkachenko, with some additional putzing around by me. Click here if you want to play around yourself.

Larsen C calves trillion ton iceberg — A one trillion tonne iceberg - one of the biggest ever recorded - has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica. The calving occurred sometime between Monday 10th July and Wednesday 12th July 2017, when a 5,800 square km section of Larsen C finally broke away.

Maybe the seed bank should be moved into a salt mine.
