So, like, in terms of global climate, there’s this phenomenon that the surface of the planet absorbs maximum radiant energy (that stuff coming from the sun) when, well, the sun is most directly sending its rays on down, like Summer Solstice, or whatever, but then, the surface of the earth absorbs that energy, and like, asphalt absorbs bunches, different surfaces different amounts, and then it take some time for that energy to reradiate back out into space, and it varies, depending on how much moisture there is in the atmosphere, Phoenix sky, big heat sink, Florida sky, not so much, but in terms of globally, it takes, like, almost into fall, autumn that is, before the energy that’s been absorbed by the planet has done its conduction thing and moves on back up there from whence it came as the planet revolves around and faces the sun differently.
So, that’s why autumn weather is just, like, the shits sometimes, in terms of climate change.
Those Nor’easters and such, the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Those hurricanes. Amplified.
Water, man, it’s one of those bodies of stuff, well, its characteristics in terms of the kind of energy it can absorb, well, there are charts, in books (I always did books) that will show you a number, but it will also show you where water is in the grand scheme of how badass it is in terms of taking up and storing energy, well, online, too, I bet, water is some pretty wicked awesome stuff.
So that’s why we have these really badass hurricanes this time of year.
That’s why they’re getting so much worse. Well, not exactly, but kinda, the atmosphere's just not letting nearly as much of that energy back on out into space, and it just keeps getting worse, and that's not very good. Just saying.
