Putting the climate spin on the unseasonal warm spell in Europe

Living in Europe and feeling a bit warmer than usual this October? Ignore any Met Office reports of warm air originating from Africa and be concerned by ‘a sign of accelerating climate change’, say climate obsessives. For example, it hasn’t been ‘this hot’ in Spain, since…1961.

October morning temperatures topping 30 Celsius (86 Fahrenheit) in Spain may have brought cheer to the tourists, but they are provoking concern among environmentalists, says Phys.org.

The mercury has been rising well above the norm across vast swathes of Europe, from Spain to as far north as Sweden.

After a summer marked by repeated heatwaves across much of the continent, Europe is experiencing exceptional temperatures even as it heads into the start of autumn—a sign of accelerating climate change.

“The month has not yet ended but we can already say practically without fear of contradiction that it will be the hottest (in Spain) since 1961,” when records began to be collated, said Ruben del Campo of Spain’s meteorological service Aemet.

If extrapolated data from historical reconstructions is taken into account, he added, this past month will have been Spain’s warmest October for fully a century.

“One, two days above 30 degrees is normal” for Spain, said del Campo. “But so many days, no. These are summer temperatures, whereas we are already heading into autumn.”

    Don’t let your children grow up to be environmentalists. They can’t enjoy nice weather. AND have to ruin it for everyone else.

    It’s such nonsense. The UK has had 6-7 very warm October’s in the last 120 years. In 1969 it reached 28 degrees on 26th October and was similarly warm in 1945 and 1921. It happens, its a sign of normality, not change.

    Still waiting to hear how CO2 makes the wind blow from a mainly African direction for a few weeks instead of the more usual Atlantic one.

    In July The Metro newspaper claimed:
    Heating from greenhouse gases caused by human activity is causing wind patterns to change and the tropics to expand, including the dry zones.

    The Azores High pressure system is one such dry zone which has expanded to unprecedented levels in the past 1,200 years, according to a recent study in Nature Geoscience.


    1,200 years? Explain the reasons, mostly pre-industrial era.

    Easy; it is a peak in the eighth known cycle of warming.
    Egyptian, Roman, Medieval and current modern cycle .

    Twentieth-century Azores High expansion unprecedented in the past 1,200 years
    Published: 04 July 2022

    Amazing what a few CO2 molecules can do 🙄
    But not 1200 years ago, so AH expansion can happen without human-caused CO2.

    Study: ‘Azores High expansion emerges after CE 1850 and strengthens into the twentieth century, consistent with anthropogenically driven warming.’

    Also consistent with modern solar maximum, for example. Solar decline is in progress now.
