Electricity pricing in California will cause old people to not use life saving air conditioning in heat waves

The electrical pricing is setting old people up to not use the air conditioning that they may truly need at some point to save their life.

Steeply tiered electricity costs can nail people with electricity bills of $200-500 or more in months where they use several hours of air conditioning in one day in California and South Korea and many other countries.

It was WARMER in Roman and Medieval times

Global cooling: It is the first time that researchers have been able to accurately measure trends in global temperature over the last two millennia

A study suggests the Britain of 2,000 years ago experienced a lengthy period of hotter summers than today.

German researchers used data from tree rings – a key indicator of past climate – to claim the world has been on a ‘long-term cooling trend’ for two millennia until the global warming of the twentieth century.

This cooling was punctuated by a couple of warm spells.

These are the Medieval Warm Period, which is well known, but also a period during the toga-wearing Roman times when temperatures were apparently 1 deg C warmer than now.

They say the very warm period during the years 21 to 50AD has been underestimated by climate scientists.

Lead author Professor Dr Jan Esper of Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz said: ‘We found that previous estimates of historical temperatures during the Roman era and the Middle Ages were too low.

July 2018 USA – 1936, 1934 and 1901 (tied with 2012) Are Still the Hottest (Maximum) in USA.

2018 is 19th. I’m using Maximum Temperature. Not Average.
