What happened huh? Why suddenly so hot! Everyday like slowly being roasted.



What can you indulge in this heat and what do you do to beat the heat? Please recommend.

I don't recall we are that 'hot' many moons ago. Although it was reported that temp has increased by 1C, it seems a lot hotter in the past 10 years. Maybe it is because we are getting more use to ac. How to sit in a car or bus with no air on?

Dubai is also hot but while I was there last week, the air is cooling and dry. I guess our biggest challenge is humidity. Can some inventor look into how to extra the moistness from our air and compete with NeWater?

Condenser units are around already - look at the aircon. ;-)

But not energy efficient.

NEA list today as 33/25 C
Weather.com list right now as 31 and feels like 37 C
Yahoo weather list now as 30 C. H33 L27.
My thermometer indoor list it as 32 C

I feel now is 34 and feels like 37 C. Rub some char siew sauce on your body when you go out. Will taste better when roasted.

If you think about it, we are being put through a washing cycle. Wash and dry, rinse and dry, rinse further and dry. The person up there is sending a message to us.

He could be thinking, "Stop the digging, reclamation, cutting down of trees, expansion plans. Else I will drain out the dirty water from the tub."

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

How about erecting solar panels across HDB blocks to provide shades against sun and rain, at the same time harvest energy?

We erect open play grounds, how on earth the kids going to enjoy them, at night?

Solar Panels have nothing to do with heat.

Right now the sun is shining at the same intensity, but it feels hotter because of the haze and humidity, and the lack of wind.

I did say the solar panels can provide shades to block the sun lah. Maybe we also also more pampered having air con. My first car has only a fan and I have no problem. Now I never wind down my windows except to slot in cash card to exist car park and of course custom. Hehe

Ironically due to the price-inelastic nature of agricultural products, farmers and producers actually earn =more= in times of drought.

If you would like to earn money from weather, see how weather correlates to Orange Juice Futures ;) (a tip from my friend Jim)

Really ? I doubt farmers will benefit from the event.. Large producers / speculators may be.. but in the case of prolonged drought.. everyone will lose
