Bummer: “Connecitcut” Will Be 10 Degrees Warmer By 2100

Where is this “Connecitcut”?

(SFGate) If you didn’t think this summer could get any hotter, just wait …

A while … about 85 years, to be exact.

Researchers at Climate Central have put together a handy tool which lets you see just how bad summers will get by 2100, if global warming predictions are accurate and nothing is done to stop the upward trend.

Connecitcut’s capital city of Hartford’s average summer temperature, which now stands at 81.54F, will reach a sweltering 91.22F in the next 85 years, according to the groups interactive map.

The hottest parts of the country will turn positively blistering, with cities like Las Vegas; Palm Springs. California and Phoenix all feeling more like cities in the Middle East.

Eh, I probably shouldn’t pick on The San Fransisco Chronicle’s Heather Alexander for spelling. I know I’m not perfect. Usually, my spelling mistakes are in the headlines. But, then, I’m not getting paid to do this.

Anyhow, her short article comes from this unhinged  Climate Central prognostication post

Summers in most of the U.S. are already warmer than they were in the 1970s. And climate models tell us that summers are going to keep getting hotter as greenhouse gas emissions continue. What will this warming feel like? Our new analysis of future summers illustrates just how dramatic warming is going to be by the end of this century if current emissions trends continue unabated.

Except for that part about there being no statistically significant warming in almost 18 years, in contradiction to the “climate models”.

For our Blistering Future Summers interactive we have projected summer high temperatures for the end of this century for 1,001 cities, and then showed which city in the U.S. — or elsewhere in the world, if we couldn’t find one here — is experiencing those temperatures today. We’ve highlighted several striking examples on the interactive, but make sure to explore and find how much hotter summers will likely be in your city.

They’re prognosticating a 7-10 degree Fahrenheit increase for most cities, with some even higher. For Raleigh, they say it will be 96.69F in 2100, up from 87.55. Seriously. They are attempting to put that much of a specific temp into the model. Check your own city and laugh at these loons

    1. The Earth has been warming the past “almost 18 years”, and 2. Climate models predicted warming and it’s warming.
