overcast conditions with occasional rain.

Goeiemorgen! Two "cooler" days in Belgium (low 20s) before we're hit with the first proper heat wave of the year

plexus08:08:03

(The Belgian meteorological service defines a heat wave as 5 consecutive days over 25, of which 3 consecutive days over 30)

borkdude09:08:09

Yeah, not so looking forward to that, so I rejoice in my relatively bad ability to look forward.

borkdude09:08:45

Morning btw.

otfrom09:08:18

☀️ here

plexus09:08:31

I'm in my element in tropical weather so no complaints here, plus we're going camping in the ardennes. But this is the sixth year in a row with heat waves, which is the longest stretch ever... not a fan of the implications for the climate.

@raymcdermott looks like your dog is teaching you tree-search algorithms ;)

I so miss those European forests

RAMart05:08:03

We will too... 😞

borkdude08:08:24

@U06GS6P1N you are not in Europe anymore?

val_waeselynck12:08:03

@U04V15CAJ no, living in Dominican Republic currently. Should be back by 2022.

val_waeselynck12:08:42

@U1Z4D5SSV about to leave the continent?

borkdude12:08:16

What brings you there?

RAMart12:08:53

> about to leave the continent? Yes. (The woods. Not me.)

raymcdermott10:08:55

pretty sure the woods will outlast you even though the climate is totally f'ed

borkdude10:08:20

Plants are way more resilient than Homo sapiens. We are just their tool to bring carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere.

val_waeselynck21:08:33

It is true that according to IPCC predictions, on a business as usual pathway, most European forests will burn as the climate gets drier

val_waeselynck21:08:49

At least in France it's the case

val_waeselynck21:08:57

The thing is, the climate boundaries will migrate faster than most tree species can

val_waeselynck21:08:42

So yeah, as per this graphics, on RCP4.5 most of our current forests are f*cked

raymcdermott08:08:33

eesh grim reading
