Brobdingnag’s climate is considerably warmer than Earth’s. Mean temperatures consistently measure eleven degrees higher than Earth’s at comparable latitudes and elevations, and no permanent ice packs cap the planet’s poles. Fortunately, little of Brobdingnag’s land lies within its tropic zone, since these regions are too hot for permanent Human habitation. The planet’s atmospheric pressure at sea level lifts the barometer about 15 percent higher than on Earth, causing higher wind pressure levels at the same velocity. High humidity and daily rains characterize the planet’s weather over most of its surface, except for sections of northern Tyndarus and the great Golan desert.
