This is NOT the first time.    Between 1645 and 1715 sunspots were extremely rare. It was a prolonged sunspot minimum that we we call the Maunder Minimum.  The Earth ...already in the "Little Ice Age" that started about 1300, got even cooler, with shorter growing seasons and failed harvests and famine.  

 

And before that time , we can go back to the viking period in Scandinavia ,  around year 1000  , the winters were not really cold .  As reported in Snorre's saga , it was "green" areas without snow even at winter time. Of course back then we did not know about the sun spots , I think as you mentioned first recorded observations of sun spots must have been around year 1500-1600 . 

 

It's too early to tell if the climate is just in a phase and it will shift back to a new little ice age or it will continue to get milder .   Reported more flooding , more rain in certain parts of the globe , and more snowy winters in other parts.  The media is talking about climate change every day , but it does not have to be human activity behind the change we see.

haven't factored all this into their calculations - try giving them a call or send an email and see what they say.

Do you seriously think that only you are aware of this and that the climate scientists

It's always been very hot in LOS at certain times of year. Whether it's getting hotter is irrelevant when it's always been too hot to go out when it's like being in a fan oven on very hot.

Good Morning Vietnam is an old film, and Robin Williams character includes an amusing sequence of how hot it was back then.

Getting hotter or colder?  What does it matter, there's nothing we can do about it.


Not true. If it’s getting cooler, you can buy a jacket.

If it’s getting hotter, you can upgrade your air conditioning.

Without getting into a political debate about climate change (been there, done that, not here please) anyone following the news would know that there is a long term hotting up trend in various parts of the world causing all kind of havoc including historically bad fires. For examples, the U.S. Southwest, Northern California, Portugal, Scandanavia, etc. 

It's a given that weather is not the same thing as climate.

 

Just living where I am in Thailand, I haven't personally noticed any change like that here. I knew I was moving to a hot country in the first place of course. I just haven't noticed that it's gotten any hotter in the time I've been living here. 

 

But this question is about Thailand in general. 

Can someone supply any objective sources about change trends in Thailand over the last decade or two?

If Thailand isn't changing in similar ways as the areas in the news, why is that?

I think it’s Cooler in the 12 years I’ve been here and mosquitoes aren’t as bad, also

I don't think Thailand's climate can get any hotter.

Bangkok is the hottest city in the world with an average daily temperature of 84 F or 28.8889 C.

In Chiang Mai, where I live there are 340 days of 90 and 90+ F  per year, 32.222 and + C.

In summer, mid-February until rainy season which is usually late May, you will see up to 105 F, 40.5556 C.

When it's very hot find a pool, some shade, or an air conditioned mall. Enjoy someone else paying for the AC and come home after 6:00 PM.

Thai people like to walk into a 7-11, hang out for 2-3 minutes, buy nothing and leave.

I have lived in Chiang Mai for 4 years. The lowest I have seen is 59 F, 15 C.

There is no very dangerous snow, ice, freezing cold, and wind chills.

In 1999, the first year I came to Thailand, one could expect 243 days per year over 32 degrees. Now, that number is 276 days. Source:

Is that site sponsored by Al Gore?

 

It shows Pattaya as 349 days this year BS

 

Correction, that number is by the end of the centrury, but I still call BS on it

Climate deniers, Brexiteers and Trumpists all have one thing in common: they eschew critical thinking and instead favour persistently shooting the messenger rather than reading the message.

  Who knows ? ?   Perhaps the current Ice Age we have been in for the last 2.6 million years willl finally come to an end.

             But we are also do for another Glacial Period relatively soon.  Cities like Toronto, Detroit, New York, Montreal, Berlin, London etc. will be buried under a mile of ice.  Like those areas were buried under a mile of ice just 25,000 years ago. 

     Crop growing regions will be devasted and growing season dramatically shortened.  If we are very lucky... our bit of warming might delay it happening.

I see fron your post you haven't got a very good grasp of the concept of climate change or the breadth and depth of research into the subject.

   I see "fron" <sic> your post that you are unable to rebut my points.  All you have is ad hominem... like a typical leftist/socialist Gore Bull Warming/Climate Change Alarmist.   Pathetic !

         I've attended college and university and continued to study even in retirement. My library drives my wife crazy.

               I'm willing to claim that, in fact, I know much more about the subject than you do. All through my years of education and study, three of my best and favourite subjects were, and remain, to be History and Geography and Geology. (I also love Astronomy and Meteoritics and own an 8" diameter Schmidt-Cassegain catadioptric telescope and accessories that cost me more than $5000.00)  Going back through geological history on this planet, Climate comes into big play.   So yes... I do know something about it.
