Rough guess based on a prediction of +4 C by 2100.

The likelyhood of Hong Kong looking like that is just as fictional as the global warming hoax.

The tropics will warm less. Especially in summer

Yesterday we just reached over 37'C (99'F) in the northern districts. Reaching 40'C (104'F) by 2115 won't be too hard.

I dont understand the belief that every month will warm... do people not realize that the earth was plenty warmer than now before and summers were not hot enough to boil water any where, life still went on as the earth was not too hot for life... many people seem to believe that global warming is going to mean hotter summers everywhere from the tropics to the pole... we can thank the hype of many media organizations for this...

I would cool those summers off, Hong Kong is wet as hell. Would be pretty tough to get that hot with all that rain, no? Winters are a big jump but more plausible imo than those summers.

Well, at least they'll FINALLY get that true tropical climate that being located well south of the Tropic of Cancer should have already given them.

When gauging what my climate would look like after x amount of years of global warming i just look to my south... i think thats pretty reasonable instead of warming every single month of the year. Raleigh should match Fayettevilles current averages on the 1991-2020 averages, or a bit cooler.

Yeah exactly my guess of Hong Kong provided the more extreme models for the arctic or on would be:

Jan 20/16
Feb 20/16
Mar 22/19
Apr 26/22
May 29/25
Jun 31/27
Jul 32/27
Aug 31/27
Sep 31/27
Oct 29/25
Nov 25/21
Dec 21/17

In other words, not very notable but still an extremely boiling summer.

Such high averages won't occur with a humid and rainy climate like HK in that short amount of time. Maybe try 2500.

I will give it an E-. Too hot and grossly humid. At least the winters are so-so, but still are too cloudy
