Just to be clear, this is not sound meteorological analysis, it’s just me playing with numbers – trying to synthesize what you can see with your own eyes if you happen to download ISTAT seres on temperatures. My point is that climate (i.e.: the structure of environmental conditions) and weather (i.e.: sun or rain forecasted tomorrow), although linked, are not the same thing. Global warming is something that does not happen in ten years, and all those ‘warmest temperature ever’ alerts sounded by the media every time there’s a spike have nothing to do with it directly. It is a much more complex trend which we still have to fully understand – and there’s not just weather forecasts at stake, but the whole ecological balance of the planet.
