Your Fault: Global Heating Makes Nights Warmer

Wait, I thought it was climate change? And, your fault for taking that long shower followed by chocolate milk from an Evil cow

Global heating warming up ‘nights faster than days’

The climate crisis is heating up nights faster than days in many parts of the world, according to the first worldwide assessment of how global heating is differently affecting days and nights.

The findings have “profound consequences” for wildlife and their ability to adapt to the climate emergency, the researchers said, and for the ability of people to cool off at night during dangerous heatwaves.

You mean like how wildlife has mostly adapted to changing climate conditions, for, let’s just use the last 20,000 years since the end of the last glacial period, with all the warming and cooling periods?

The scientists compared the rises in daytime and night-time temperatures over the 35 years up to 2017. Global heating is increasing both, but they found that over more than half of the world’s land there was a difference of at least 0.25C between the day and night rises.

In two-thirds of those places, nights were warming faster than the days, particularly in Europe, west Africa, western South America and central Asia. But in some places – southern US, Mexico and the Middle East – days were warming faster.

The changes are the result of global heating causing changes to clouds. Where cloud cover increases, sunlight is blocked during the day but the clouds retain more heat and humidity at night, like a blanket.

This leads to nights getting increasingly hotter compared with days. Where cloud cover is decreasing, mostly in regions that are already dry, there is more sunlight during the day, which pushes temperatures up more rapidly.

First, cloud formation is primarily driven by that big nuclear furnace in the sky, not you driving a fossil fueled vehicle to the airport so you can fly back from D.C. to San Francisco every weekend like Nancy Pelosi. One should expect nights to stay warmer during a Holocene warm period.

Second, quite a bit of this is actually in urbanized areas, which would make this land use/Urban Heat Island effect, where urban areas hold heat longer. It’s one of the reasons people put rocks around fires when it is cold: the rocks trap the heat of the fire and hold it longer than the ground. Go out in the boonies and you’ll find the temperatures going down faster. But, hey, anything to prop up the cult, right?

Daniel Cox, a research fellow at the University of Exeter and leader of the study, said: “We demonstrated that greater night-time warming is associated with the climate becoming wetter, and this has been shown to have important consequences for plant growth and how species, such as insects and mammals, interact.

Didn’t they tell us that a warming world would be dryer? Guess the talking points depend on the Doom they’re pushing.

    TEACH headlines: Global Heating Makes Nights Warmer

    Seriously, this can’t be the first you’ve heard of this. It’s consistent with the greenhouse warming effect and predicted.

    TEACH concludes: Didn’t they tell us that a warming world would be dryer? Guess the talking points depend on the Doom they’re pushing.

    Did they? Warmer air holds more water vapor. The flaw in TEACH’s “reasoning” is believing that climate is uniform around the globe. For example the North Pole is warming more rapidly than the equator.

    Nights getting warmer. Winter could not be reached for comment.

    I love these clowns…”warming is associated with the climate becoming wetter. But don’t worry, it’s also causing that dry air that we blame the California fires on…See-we have all bases covered”.
