Check out this article.
90 degree bath water off the coast of Malta.

http://www.thebigwobble.org/2017/08/at-astonishing-sea-temp-of-around-30.html

  That web site has a lot of info packed articles dealing with the ongoing deterioration of our climate. I've placed it in my favorites.  8)

I've been looking at the temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico next to Houston, near New Orleans (hot!) and the really hot ones in the Suez Canal and next to all that expensive real estate (Qatar, Dubai, etc.). They made those fancy palm shaped islands and the water there (virtually ALL of the Persian Gulf) is getting hotter than a pistol!

The ocean life is going to be toast in those areas. Lots of fish can handle cold temperatures but very few can handle consistently high temperatures. Jellyfish, however, seem to thrive on high temperatures.  :P They have been known to cluster next to nuclear power plants and give cooling problems to the nuke pukes.

The latest killer heatwave in Europe is called 'Lucifer.' Extreme weather 'could kill up to 150,000 a year' just in Europe this century! 
Map the weather channel

It's been a common theme throughout this summer in the Northern Hemisphere, killer heatwaves with temperatures humans should not have to endure and every summer recently appears to get worse, with this year especially oppressing from California to Japan.
In Italy, the latest heatwave, nick-named 'Lucifer' by locals, has caused a 15 per cent spike in admissions to hospital emergency units and forecasters see no respite coming before early next week.

It's brought wildfires to Spain, Italy, France, The Balkans and Romania, destroyed millions of Euro's of crops and killing thousands of cattle.
Flash foods and lightning strikes are also increasing at an unprecedented level.

But now The Lancet Planetary Health journal has written a new report claiming extreme weather could kill up to 152,000 people each year in Europe by 2100 if nothing is done to curb the effects of climate change, scientists say.

The bleak pictured they paint could see such deaths rise from 3,000 each year between 1981 and 2010 to 152,000 a year between 2071 and 2100 and that's just Europe, the south western US has endured temperatures around 50 deg C or 122 deg F this year and Asian countries especially, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have lost thousands of people to heat and floods.

By 2100, weather-related disasters could affect two thirds of Europe's population per year, It comes amid a number of high profile heat waves which have hit the headlines recently, with tourists today warned to expect highs of 43°C in Croatia and Spain.

Whatever your stance on climate change it is undeniable the weather is becoming more extreme year on year.

Underwater permafrost on the Arctic shelf melting faster than expected

Russian and Swedish researchers have published a research survey showing that the underwater permafrost layer on the Eastern Siberian continental shelf is melting faster than expected, the press service of the Tomsk Polytechnic University told.

"In 1982-1983, the Permafrost Research Institute of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences drilled four wells, and based on this data we found that the rate of vertical underwater permafrost degradation in the area has gone up to 18 centimeters per year (14 centimeters on average) in the past 30 years, which is ten times faster than expected," the press service said.

It was believed that the permafrost layer on the sea shelf in the eastern Arctic was mostly solid, which would not allow the possibility of methane emissions from under the ice. It was assumed that the melting of the permafrost would not exceed several meters before the end of the 21st century, and that it would take from hundreds to thousands of years for it to melt through.

"Based on the new results obtained by comprehensive biogeochemical, geophysical and geological research made in 2011-2016, we can conclude that in some areas of the Eastern Siberian shelf the permafrost layer has thinned and reached the stability zone of hydrates, the destruction of which might lead to massive emissions of methane bubbles," Natalya Shakhova, professor at the university's Geology and Exploration Department, was quoted as saying.

According to the survey, the volume of methane emissions from the bottom sediment in eastern Arctic seas can vary from milligrams to dozens to hundreds of grams per a square meter per day, depending on the condition of the permafrost layer. This leads to a two to four times increase in atmospheric methane in the above-water layer.

Researchers also discovered another reason for the increase in methane emissions into the water and the air: in shallow waters, icebergs and large ice floes plow through the sea bottom making trenches 4-6 meters deep. They reach the gas layers and release methane.

The multi-year ice is gone.  :(

The ice extent is about the same as the year it was the lowest at this time (2012). HOWEVER, the thickness was much greater in 2012 (see below).

Agelbert NOTE:
When the ice is gone, the methane bomb will not be far behind.

Inhuman temperatures birds dropping from the sky as the mercury in Kuwait and Iraq soar above 50 deg C +122 deg F

Birds in Kuwait have reportedly been dropping from the sky as temperatures soar to 50C across the Middle East.

The temperature in Kuwait has been consistently above 45C but the added humidity in the region is making it seem even hotter, creating extremely difficult living conditions for both humans and wildlife.

The Middle East has been hit with an 'ungodly' heatwave so extreme Iraq's government ordered all of its civil servants to go home on Thursday, when temperatures rose above 50C.

Temperatures are expected to stay above 45C for the next week, with the UK Met office predicting temperatures as high as 50C this weekend.

Meanwhile Kuwait will see highs of 47C and 44C in Riyadh.

It comes after temperatures above 48C every day this month in the Iraqi capital. Iraq's underfunded power network is struggling to cope with the increased demand from air conditioning and water coolers.

"It's really hard because of the lack of electricity, at home electricity is not good. We use 60 per cent of electricity from generators," said Baghdad resident Murtada Faisal. Mr Faisal said public showers offered by the Government as a means to battle the heat were "like a bandage".

"What we need is a long term solution like trees and water tunnels," he said. Mr Faisal said green spaces had been lost to new housing developments in and around Baghdad and there was not enough water to sustain the trees that the Government had planted.

The heatwave is also taking its toll on Iraq's military, who often spend long periods standing outside. Mr Faisal said he noticed increased friction between soldiers and civilians in the extreme weather. "It's really bad, it makes them angry.

When I go outside in Summer, I see more problems between people at the border," he said.

Another Baghdad resident, Mohanad, described the heat as "ungodly".
"The generator in my neighbourhood that provides electricity for about 300 houses has caught fire from the heat.

All it generates is smoke," he told the Guardian. "We don't know what to do. Men can go to the pool here but what do we do with our women, elderly and our babies?
Even the ACs in the car aren't working properly.
It's over 53 degrees today."

"It's disgusting. The government cannot do anything to help us even if they tried; the electricity generators were built in the 1960s and haven't been changed or modified since."

The heatwave in the Middle East comes after a heatwave dubbed 'Lucifer' fanned forest fires in Europe this week.

Both the Middle East and Europe have experienced extreme heatwaves this summer, which scientists warn is the result of global warming. In Iraq, temperatures in Baghdad have reached 50C, prompting the government to declare a mandatory holiday to allow state workers to stay at home.

Europe is battling a heatwave dubbed "Lucifer" which has seen temperatures climb above 40C across the continent.

The sweltering weather in Italy has caused wildfires and at least two people have died from the extreme heat in Romania and Poland. Italy, Spain, Greece, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia have been the worst hit, with people being warned to stay indoors, avoid long journeys and drink plenty of fluids.

In Our Opinion, These Opinions Are Smart Opinions:
Although we usually use this space to call out bad actors, today we’re going to kick off this week with some praise for great pieces that illustrate that the deniers’ denial isn’t going very well.  ;D

Down at the Miami Herald, columnist Fred Grimm surveyed the overwhelming number of climate stories that broke last week. He opens his column by declaring that, “Denial begins to look like psychosis” and ends on a no less pithy note. After tearing through a terrifying list of maladies, Grimm points out that despite the melting glaciers, the rising seas, warming temperatures and drying droughts, political leaders and other deniersjust keep on denying.” 
http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/fred-grimm/article166587642.html
 
This sentiment was echoed by the NY Times’s Paul Krugman, who outlined for readers The Axis of Climate Evil . Krugman points to the fossil fuel-funded voices, the ideologically anti-regulation actors, and the attention-seeking contrarian academics as the three nodes of the denier axis. He also calls out something we’ve mentioned when he writes that he “can’t think of a single prominent climate skeptic who isn’t obviously arguing in bad faith.”
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/11/opinion/climate-science-denial.html
 
Nevertheless, scientists have persisted and resisted. Former EPA science advisor Robert Richardson (relieved of duty by the administration) writes in the Washington Post about how Trump’s attack on science isn’t going very well.   
Richardson, positively dripping in the sarcasm and contempt that we do so appreciate, notes that, “Academic integrity, it turns out, is really important to professionals in scientific agencies of the federal government.”


So despite the alt-facts ideology of the White House, scientists are as of yet still staying true to their dedication to real facts. Who woulda thought!? Oh, everyone who isn’t a troll arguing in bad faith.

It looks to me like the worst hurricane to hit Texas in many years, from the way it's shaping up. I hope I can fly home from Charlotte Amalie on Sunday.

I agree it looks very bad. Take care.

Exxon's PITTANCE offering of $500,000 to Hurricane Harvey victims won't even begin to dent the MASSIVE cost to insurance corporations taking the BRUNT of Climate Change costs Big Oil SHOULD BE PAYING, while biosphere polluting, democracy destroying, people poisoning corporations like Exxon keep getting welfare queened with direct AND INDIRECT MASSIVE subsidies.
