Sun Baked Sunday


Odds are increasing that 2016 will be the hottest year on the books, as April continued a remarkable streak of record-warm months.

Last month was rated as the warmest April on record by both NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which released their data this week. In the temperature annals kept by NOAA, it marked the 12th record warmest month in a row.

Global temperatures have been hovering around 1.5°C (2.7°F) above pre-industrial averages — a threshold that’s being considered by international negotiators as a new goal for limiting warming.

While an exceptionally strong El Niño has provided a boost to temperatures in recent months, the primary driver has been the heat that has built up from decades of unabated greenhouse gas emissions.

    And the excess carbon dioxide emissions will be around for 100,000 years according to David Archer. Unless we do something cooperative about it such as plant the Sahara desert with irrigated trees.

    De-salination to irrigate those trees…

    Someone arrived at the abandoned, but sold, house next door…with a tractor. They started hacking up my landscaping, DAMMIT!!! Fortunately, they didn’t do the entire 2 acre property, my trails and most of my wild areas are still intact. I mowed a couple of my trails but needed gas, so I’ll finish it tomorrow. Looks like the fun I’ve been having sculpting the property next door is over.

    The usual route towards the Birch & Barley cut short at Benewah Street to Latah Street and up it to the Tokyo Seoul for salmon teriyaki bento box dinner again.

    Was windy enough that at a high angle of attack a hawk went both up and backwards without flapping.
