    David, that doesn't look well.

    In Germany attempts were made to inoculate the large Cumulonimbus clouds with condensation cores by plane.
    This reduces the size of the hailstones.

    Hey, I love my Vespa. It's a 300cc so it ain't a toy. I dare say I'd flog you off the lights. :p

    The latest assumptions, climate researcher Friederike Otto, who heads the Institute for Environmental Change at the University of Oxford means: Man-made global warming has increased the risk of fire-threatening weather conditions, the so-called Fire Weather Index, by at least thirty percent compared to 1900.
    I find it amazing how the risk was assessed in 1900 to find an underlying.

    I am very very worried about this finding! It sounds very scientific!

    Yes, this number "30%" was created by mental force not by science, to satisfy the politicians who pay for research work. That is why politicians only accept quantitative answers to justify their activity.

    Yes. 99.37% of such data is assumption.

    I agree with this assumption:)

    We don't build our house on guesswork but on a solid foundation.

    It's not data Ray, it's mind farting. Like when historical temperature records are altered for various reasons and then used as the ''correct data'' and using this to make claims about records and predictions when in actual fact it is no longer data it is now garbage. The proper scientific way to do this is to add error bars on the original data and to clearly state your reasons for doing so. Not change anything.

    I agree, Mike.
    Data without an error bar has no scientific meaning anywhere. They are only suitable for marketing or propaganda purposes.
