  • Scary. There will be a lot more of this happening as global warming continues to push weather extremes.

    • I've been in Nwfld for the past week, and many of the older folks weve talked to along the way say this summer had been unlike any they've ever seen.

      The waters are also warming and sharks are being more visible. My wifes cousin was out line fishing for Cod and sharks are starting to steal his catch as he pulls it up. One last week was actually ramming his boat over and over. A 52 yrs old big newfie was scared as he said 'the shark had a taste for blood and was out to get me'. He has a video of it I'll try and find.

          So. "Renewables met 97% of Scotland's electricity demand in 2020"

          That seems encouraging....

            WOW, with less than the population of the GTA, that's absolutely amazing. LOL
            They are too busy drinking that Scotch to notice any temperature change any way.

                      In the late 19th century there was an entire industry opposed to replacing the use of 'gas' for lighting on the streets and in homes with electricity. They labelled electricity as 'dangerous' or too expensive.

                      There were those who opposed the removal of 'lead' from gasoline.

                      And to this day there are those including TFG who continually speak about a return to the use of coal. Here is a link to some pictures of what the City of Toronto looked like due to the use of coal and having zero emissions controls on vehicles. There are some of us who are old enough to remember when the buildings of the city looked like this, or when daily 'smog' warnings were issued and you could actually see the 'brown haze' hanging over large cities.

                              Same thing with the river Po in Italy which supplies irrigation for about 30% of their agriculture.

                              You think food is expensive now? Just wait.....

                              Here's the Guadiana River in Spain. That big expensive bridge seems unnecessary right now....

                              Meanwhile, Lake Mead has hit its lowest level since the construction of the Hoover Dam. It is (was?) the largest reservoir in the US.

                                I lived by the Ticino river as a child, it's a contributor to The Po.
