    And that’s probably the high temperature. Think how cold it will get at night!

    Average annual temperature in California, 1971-1980 average as baseline. Each annual bar is colour coded with each tone representing 2.5 standard deviations from the '71-'80 mean.

    Western Washington is doing ok for water supplies, in the news today eastern Washington is running dry.

    It is not tomorrow it is today. The thought to be unsinkable Titanic comes to mind.

    I used to build bridges, some of the rebar is corroded from the start. If you think about the pressure points on structures, it doesn't take much of a shift to have an area fail...and then the dominos fall.

    Meanwhile, press starts making news with "heat dome".

    It is summer folks, there are heat waves, it happens. What happened in the Pacific Northwest was extremely rare and worth reporting. Bringing up the term "heat dome" every time there is a heat wave, however, starts diminishing the meaning and diluting the importance of reading the news.

    Reality bites;

    Britons are set to be allowed up to five more years before a ban on sales of all new gas boilers comes into force, in a major row-back for Boris Johnson amid a backlash over the soaring cost of 'net zero' ahead of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow later this year. The Prime Minister is looking at delaying the ban by five years to 2040, in a move which would give millions of UK households more time for new hydrogen boilers and heat-pumps to fall in price, and for businesses to pump more money into shifting people over gradually. The public is set to be incentivised to buy an eco-friendly heat-pump next time their boiler breaks down - but the delay to introducing the ban means working boilers could have to be taken out before 2050, or the UK could fail to hit its 'net zero' carbon emission targets. It comes amid a mounting backlash over the spiralling cost of Mr Johnson's so-called green revolution, with Government insiders fearful that the proposals could add another £400billion on top of the enormous sums accrued during the Covid pandemic. Hydrogen boilers are one of the possible replacements for gas boilers, with others including ground source or air source heat pumps, but these cost upwards of £14,000 or £11,000 respectively.

    Why do you keep using the Daily Fail as a source?

    It is a very stupid idea, though--hydrogen is tricky to handle and isn't a power source in the first place.

    Zeppelins were designed to contain helium, not hydrogen. But the U.S. was the only source of helium in the world and we wouldn't sell. The rest is history.

    There are companies that make hydrogen fuel cells for cars, trucks, and busses. The fundamental issue with fuel cells is it takes electricity to create hydrogen. Its those pesky troublesome Laws Of Thermodynamics.
