    of the Southwest way dry and HOT!!

    At nearly 121 degrees, Woodland Hills potentially just set the record for the highest temperature in recorded history within LA city limits.

    Oh, man. It makes me so sad to see forest fires. All those beautiful trees that took decades to become what they are today all gone within a matter of hours. icon_cry.gif


    And as far as the heat goes, I experienced 121 degrees yesterday. It was 116 today and will be 119 on Monday tomorrow.

    Though it's all part of the natural cycle.

    The world record for hottest day is 134 degrees F in Death Valley, set in 1913.

    The first half of the 20th century was hotter, drier, and more fire ravaged than anything any of us have seen in our lifetimes.

    Without that perspective the relatively small upswing in temperatures after some cooling in the 50s 60s and 70s might appear to be runaway global warming. But it is miniscule in comparison to the pre CO2 climate.

    Once the runaway lies get big enough, the only smart thing to do is shut up and get out of the way. The most vocal dissenters from the myth are all post career and they'll be gone soon.

    We'll be longing for the stability and comfort of the warmth when the larger cycles toward long term cooling prevail again. Enjoy it while its here.

    Wow, have you ever been in 121 temps? I'm not sure if I've even seen that? So far here in the tropics
    it's been a little dyer than usual, but still cool tropical tradewinds! Stay well & Hydrated.

    False. This is outside the timelines for Earth’s normal climatic cycles.

    To be honest, it doesn't feel all that much worse than 115-117. What's a few more degrees? But you gotta stay out of the sun. I've stayed indoors for the most part. I keep it at around 86 degrees in the house. That's not very cool compared to some people's standards. But it's enough for me.

    I went to Costco and Home Depot since I had to run some errands. It's not pleasant but I deal with it.

    An icci? I have no idea what that is so I'm guessing the answer is "no."
