Via Watchers.News

While Los Angeles sees about 355.6 mm (14 inches) of rain in a full year, this year’s 250 mm probably says more about how bad 2018 was, meteorologist Chris Bianchi wrote for WeatherNation.

“There’s little doubt that 2019 has featured plenty of rain so far with an astounding 250.19 mm (9.85 inches) of rain at LAX Airport and 290.06 mm (11.42 inches) in downtown Los Angeles… It’s probably more of a commentary on how bad 2018 was than how busy 2019 has been,” Bianchi said.

In 2010 this page said that the Sun is the major driver of Earth’s climate, that it controls all the major aspects, and we may be on the cusp of an ice age. Furthermore NASA Science said things like clouds, albedo and aerosol behaviour can have more powerful cooling effects that outdo the warming effect of CO2.

Thousands of schoolchildren and young people in the UK are taking part in climate strikes with the support of a former UN climate chief, who said it was “time to heed the deeply moving voice of youth”.

Christiana Figueres, who led the historic 2015 Paris agreement, said the fact that children were so worried about their future they were prepared to strike should make adults take urgent action.

“It is a sign that we are failing in our responsibility to protect them from the worsening impacts of climate change,” she said.
