Thailand to see hotter weather as summer continues

Thailand’s summer will continue to be hotter than the same period last year, according to the Meteorological Department.

 

“It will be about one or two degrees Celsius hotter,” the department’s director-general Phuwieng Prakhammintara said onFriday. 

 

The mercury is expected to soar past 42 degrees Celsius in seven provinces, namely Mae Hong Son, Lampang, Uttaradit, Sukhothai, Tak, Nakhon Sawan and Kanchanaburi. 

 

On Thursday, Lampang’s Thoen district was the hottest place in the country, with the mercury hitting to 44.2 degrees Celsius.

 

This was the highest temperature in the history of the northern province, which previously had recorded a top reading of 43.8 degrees Celsius.

 

The temperature has not yet broken the country’s record for hottest day, which was recorded at 44.6 degrees Celsius in Mae Hong Son province on April 28, 2016.

 

Phuwieng said that the sun would be perpendicular to and at the shortest distance from Bangkok on April 27, raising the possibility that it would be the hottest day of the year. 

 

“But the forecast suggests it will rain between April 25 and 27 and that may help reduce the heat,” he said.

Do you have one of those water membrane coolers. I would not call them an air conditioner.

Please buy an enclosed gas system for your bedroom.

I need my sleep. I use a fan during the day.

Time to get it cleaned out.

I have to get my aircon cleaned up every half year or so, otherwise gets slow, noisy, and starts leaking water.  

The condenser outside gets clogged with damn pigeon feathers pretty quickly.

And????

The fact that polar ice is melting faster.

Many countries are suffering from bigger and more frequent storms etc and that's happening at a faster rate than 30/40/50 years ago.

I don't know where it's going and I listen to people like Sir David Attenborough and don't read tabloids.

 

If you look at the long picture, over millions of years, the Earth has been covered in ice, and it has had the shape of continents changed by rising seas. This is nothing new. Climate change goes in cycles, and it's always been done without the help or hindrance of humans. As I said before, we aren't helping, but to say that humans can irreparably change a planet over a couple of decades when it has survived with or despite us for many millions of years is questionable to say the least.

Tectonic plate movement had more effect in changing continents and is still doing so.

Climate cycles as you say come and go causing sea levels to go both up and down.

Who knows, it could start to reverse or it could get worse and the present edidence seems to point at worse.

Greenhouse gases having a massive effect? I don't know.
