23% of warming in Europe since 1980 due to cleaner air

Filed under: Clean Air,sulfur dioxide,Sunshine — sunshinehours1 @ 8:53 PM

Cleaner Air = More Sunshine = Warmer

“A paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters finds that clean air laws which greatly reduced sulfur dioxide emissions explain 81% of the “brightening” of sunshine and 23% of the surface warming in Europe since 1980.”

NOAA – 28,504 Low Max Records Set in Last 365 Days

28,504 Low Max Records were set in last 365 days according to the NOAA.

A “Low Max” means that the maximum temperatures for the day was the lowest it has ever been.

This indicates daytime cooling.

Only 13205 High Max records were set. That is  over a 2:1 ratio. Brrr.
