Not me this time.

Actual was climate mode change from #2 (typical Jason model of fixed seasonal monsoons)...
to #3 (E travelling monsoonal roots with monsoonal flows in tow).

Result of mode#3 is that traditional monsoonal climates have a pulsating monsoon with no real fixed end date (with as a result: monsoonal squall lines at any time of year with bulk in summertime & particularly duyring late summer tropical storm season.

Mode#3 broke out in April over the Asia pacific hot pool (centred over South China sea). Result was that Asia-Pacific side ended up in mode#3 and antipodes approx latitude of W. African bulge was in mode#2. Result was polar hood moved into N. and S. Atlantic and constricted rainbelt over NW Europe in particular fed by gulf stream moisture. Asame effect depressed monsoonal flow & squall line type thunderstorms in subtropics below rainbelt, and resulting drought over USA plains & SW. Desert belt in particular.

Mode#3 now wrapping round, to become global as a result of extra heat input of approaching solar max & already warm oceans. Atlantic hurricane season this year largely Atlantic as result of effect of early recurvation up travelling monsoonal flow.
Asia Pacific hot pool also drifting E. as a result of change in typical airflow regime from W. to E. travel in main sector of mode. Now in location of Guam and drifting E. Expecting weak El Nino at end of year.

This one a result of global warming,(in this case solar induced as result of warming as a result of extra insolation following the solar superminimum of previous 3 years).

Would like somebody in current government of day to change my prior Labour party induced nickname. That said I DO like the idea of miniature fish...

Nice review, but I believe that the former government of Tony Blair is well beyond salvation via psychology & needs at least 5 years in a maximum security sanitorium with constant checks, as released before that time may continue to be a grave danger for the UK public.

Notes:
I as yet have no idea at all of whom was given the nickname "global warming".
The person given the nickname "bad news" was Dr David Kelly (he got buried). There was a major scandal about a leak in Blairite office about him just after 9/11.

Numerous other people with Blairite nicknames probably exist. Most are now likely poverty stricken blacklist victims; or dead following such a blacklist.

Yes they are stable every moment you stop your useless babble tainted with hate covered with spam cut and paste hot air. Have you seen your care giver today?

Food prices moved within a narrow range for decades; now they are climbing like a scalded bat.

partly due to your people trying to use cereals to make ethanol, making bread much dearer, and also, ruining a number of car fuel systems. and why do you blame this price rise on "global warming" when the cause has been a very wet and rather cold summer?

Simple answer, alarmists say Glowbull warming is responsible for anything that goes wrong, even if it can be explained by something else.

That is your issue everything seems to be simple for you with one exception, you can't get away from that useless babble tainted with hate covered with spam cut and paste hot air. Have you seen your care giver today?
