Miles Of Ice Collapsing Into the Sea

Cool articles (no pun intended) – Miles of Ice Collapsing Into the Sea

Graphic representation showing just how much and how incredible the amount of ice flow really is in Antarctica.

Unstoppable disintegration. And rising seas, world wide.

Oh, and there’s this – Doomsday Glacier

Catchy title. Won’t mean a thing to the distracted people of this planet. But it should. I don’t even think an imminent asteroid strike would raise much interest.[...] Read More

The crack in this Antarctic ice shelf just grew by 11 miles. A dramatic break could be imminent.

Well, exciting times for all!

An enormous rift in one of Antarctica’s largest ice shelves grew dramatically over the past month, and a chunk nearly the size of Delaware could break away as soon as later this winter, British scientists reported this week.

The crack in the ice shelf, known as Larsen C, has been growing at an accelerating rate. Since the beginning of December, it has grown about 11 miles in length, after extending 13 miles earlier in the year. In total, the rift has grown about 50 miles since 2011 (it’s almost 100 miles long in total), and has widened to well over 1,000 feet. Now, only 12 miles of ice continue to connect the chunk with the rest of the ice shelf.[...] Read More

Ocean Apocalypse Now

Jeremy Jackson Senior Scientist Emeritus, Smithsonian Institution and Professor of Oceanography, Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

Mean sea level rise of 13′ – 14′ feet in a couple of years when the West Antarctic Ice Sheet disintegrates @27 minute mark. This video should be watched all the way through.

Posted here before, but more important now then ever. Things are even worse now.[...] Read More

Extreme Events Escalating Worldwide Part IV

There is always plenty of news to report on the ongoing signs of collapse. These can each be called ‘extreme events’. Taken together, they portray a future that will be very difficult indeed.

There is a lot of hand-wringing over this – and (still) endless amounts of hopium by all the usual shills that ‘something can be done’ while steadfastly refusing to take into account our track record, our inability to resolve our differences, our lack of political will, and finally the hour-glass of time we never really had. My position on all this remains the same as always.[...] Read More

The Ice is Exquisitely Sensitive To Temperature

Worth watching – a Nova documentary on Antarctica and what it means for humanity.

As little as 1 degree climate sensitivity. Dramatic sea level rises have occurred before.

Points To Ponder – The Terrifying Future Facing Humanity – The Meocene

If the Greenland ice sheet melt is ‘unstoppable’, why aren’t low-lying coastal regions preparing to move their infrastructure, businesses and homes?

If the Western Antarctic ice sheet melt is ‘unstoppable’, why isn’t humanity preparing for a flooded world?

If the Arctic ice cap is going to disappear (melt into the oceans), why are our global leaders still pretending that all of this isn’t a global emergency?[...] Read More

63.5°F in Antarctica: Possible Continental Record; 14 Years of Rain in 1 Day in Chile

From Dr. Jeff Masters Wunder Blog: 63.5°F in Antarctica: Possible Continental Record; 14 Years of Rain in 1 Day in Chile

Continental records are rare as hell. But will become a lot more common as things continue to heat up.

Weather weirding in Chile: Copiapo River dry for 17 years, swamps desert area in Atacama region.

Update: Video on the flooding – worth watching, pretty devastating.[...] Read More

Climate Change and the Forests of the West

Sent in by Lonewolf, this is a really good video on what is happening with the forests in the West by Dr. Steve Running.

If you like facts, science and good commentary, definitely watch this.

Although from 2010, it’s even more valid today as truly huge temperature changes are taking place.

I got a chance to watch this all the way through, since being in the West will definitely be of interest to me. What is happening in our forests is very scary.[...] Read More
