    The death certificates of more than 2,300 people who died in the United States last summer mention the effects of excessive heat, the highest number in 45 years of records, according to an Associated Press analysis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data. With May already breaking heat records, 2024 could be even deadlier.

    And more than two dozen doctors, public health experts, and meteorologists told the AP that last year’s figure was only a fraction of the real death toll. Coroner, hospital, ambulance and weather records show America’s heat and health problem at an entirely new level.

    “We can be confident saying that 2023 was the worst year we’ve had from since ... we’ve started having reliable reporting on that,” said Dr. John Balbus, director of the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity at the Department of Health and Human Services.

    Well, I get about two weeks in the year to brag about the weather in northern MN, so here goes. Currently 62 and sunny. High of 76 today, which is the hottest it's been this year.

    Yeah, every now and then we get this anomaly where it's hotter up here than it is down south.

    OK, this is scary as hell. Peer reviewed but I haven’t seen much mention other than here. The AMOC may be nearer tipping, imminent, with immense catastrophic consequences

    It’s a lot cooler today than it was last week. How do you explain that? Aren’t we supposed to be getting warmer?

    Yeah my buddy who is really a wig in this field has been talking about that as a "coming event" for about a year or so.

    I knew it was a concern, but always felt it was for the next generations.

    I will note that while deniers often say that CC is bogus because the predictions haven't come true yet, he is concerned because the effects we ARE seeing weren't expected for decades to come. In other words, it is happening faster than predicted, not slower.

    No expert, but I feel the same -seems like we are in the 2055 predicted timeframe in terms of what we were told to expect

    Are you ruling out the possibility of global cooling?
