July is on track to become Earth's hottest month on record, climate scientists say

July is on track to become Earth's hottest month on record, climate scientists say Even with more than a week left until the end of the month, experts are already anticipating that the current record from July 2017 will fall. "It's looking like there's a strong likelihood that we will end up with the warmest month ever," said Brian Brettschneider, a climate researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. (In this case, "ever" means since modern record-keeping began in 1880.) In July 2017, when the previous record was set, average global temperatures were 2.16 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the 20th century average for July of 57.

AMSTERDAM (AP) — The heat wave that smashed temperature records in Western Europe last month was made more intense by man-made climate change, according to a study published Friday.

The rapid study by a respected team of European scientists points to an array of evidence that man-made global warming was behind the continent's most recent heat wave.

"The July 2019 heat wave was so extreme over continental Western Europe that the observed magnitudes would have been extremely unlikely without climate change," the study concluded.

In countries where millions of people sweltered through the heat wave, temperatures would have been 1.5 to 3 degrees Celsius (2.7 to 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit) lower in a world without human-induced climate change, the study said.

Global warming is also making such extreme heat more frequent, the study by experts from France, the Netherlands, Britain, Switzerland and Germany found.

Disney Has Already Broken Its Own Annual Global Box Office Record With $7.67 Billion

Disney Has Already Broken Its Own Annual Global Box Office Record With $7.67 Billion The 2019 box office was predicted to be a year of Disney domination, and that has proven to be all too true as the studio has broken the all-time annual global box office record in just seven months thanks to Marvel films like "Avengers: Endgame" and its latest release, "The Lion King." The previous record had also been set by Disney back in 2016, the year where Disney truly began to show off the power it had accumulated through its acquisition of several major franchises.

The scientists said that the temperatures recorded in France and the Netherlands could happen every 50-150 years in the world's current climate. Without "human influence on climate," the temperatures would likely happen less than once in 1,000 years.

The report's lead author, Robert Vautard of the Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace in France, said Europe needs to get used to such heat waves, which are likely to become more frequent and intense.

"This will go up and if we don't do anything about climate change, about emissions, these heat waves which today have an amplitude of 42 degrees, they will have three degrees more in 2050 so that is going to make 45 (degrees) roughly speaking," he told The Associated Press.

"What will be the impacts on agriculture? What will the impacts on water?" Vautard said. "This will put really tension in society that we may not be so well equipped to cope with."

While the heat wave broke in Western Europe after a few days late last month, the extreme temperatures have since shifted north and are causing massive ice melts in Greenland and the Arctic.

The scientists calculated the odds of this type of heat occurring now and how often it would have happened in a world without man-made global warming and compared them. They created the simulations by using eight different sets of complex computer models.

The U.S. National Academy of Sciences in 2016 studied this new scientific method of climate attribution and pronounced it valid.

UN to release new report detailing how climate change impacts land, food

UN to release new report detailing how climate change impacts land, food The United Nations body focused on climate change is set to release a new report detailing research about the relationship between climate change and land on Thursday.

Kathie Dello, a climate scientist from NC State University in North Carolina, said the study helps to pin the blame for the heat wave on climate change.

"If searching for a culprit for the intensity of these recent European heatwaves, climate change is the obvious culprit," Dello said in an email. "Attribution is just dusting for fingerprints. Climate change will continue to be a menace when it comes to extreme heat, making these events more likely and more intense."

Another expert not connected to the study, Celine Bonfils of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, said the findings are clear: "record hot weather events are becoming more likely, and human-induced climate change is causing this increase in heat wave frequency."

The new report agreed with their assessments, saying that every recent European heat wave that has been analyzed "was found to be made much more likely and more intense due to human-induced climate change."
