Actions Always Speak Louder Then Words

Always more bad news (how could it be any different?) on the climate front –

Traceable evidence of the impacts of climate change on humanity

Greenhouse gasses triggering more changes than we can handle

Ongoing greenhouse gas emissions are known to increase atmospheric temperature, in turn enhancing soil water evaporation resulting in drought, wildfires and heatwaves in normally dry places, or massive rain and floods in commonly wet areas. In the oceans, warmer waters also evaporate faster, increasing wind speeds and the downpours of hurricanes, whose surges can be aggravated by sea level rise. As a result, greenhouse gas emissions can aggravate simultaneously multiple climate hazards.

4th National Climate Assessment Report

The 4th National Climate Assessment Report is out. Released of course “early” and on purpose (Friday) to ensure as few people as possible would be aware of this. No, that is not conjecture, it’s an admitted Trump Administration fact. They don’t want people to be aware of how severe climate change is getting, but you’d have to be asleep or seriously distracted to not realize that things are getting mighty serious for some people (soon – all of us).

Where Do You Go When There Is Nothing Left?

The terrible tragedy that has befallen the town and people of Paradise, CA has created an enormous number of climate refugees in the Golden State. The wildfire was heavily influenced by extended drought conditions and was probably unavoidable. It is these kinds of tragedies that I’ve been warning about over the years. Now the deadliest wildfire in the past 100 years, what happened to Paradise bodes ill-warnings for many other parts of the country gripped by drought.

Earth’s Oceans Absorbing 60% More Heat Then Previously Thought

This is very bad news – because it means that things are heating up MUCH faster then we thought:

Earth’s oceans have absorbed 60 percent more heat than previously thought

This would also help explain the known problems with fish stocks, and fish migrations now unfolding. And this also means that the “carbon budget” claims are utterly bogus, because they failed to account for what was really happening in the world’s oceans. But I told readers that years ago. We do not have the time or budget that some science reports still claim.

October 2018 Update

I’ve been dragging my feet on posting a new blog report (sorry). There’s just too much going on right now to add to the mix. I paid very close attention to the Kavanaugh hearings (guilty as charged) and am in shock with at least half the nation that this serial sexual abuser was confirmed to the Supreme Court.

A lot of things did NOT happen as they should have. Only 9 witnesses were ‘interviewed’ by the FBI after the week-long delay on the hearings was requested (and Christine Ford was NOT one of them). Trump directly interfered with the witness list and who the FBI could and could not talk to during this “delay”. In retrospect, that was their plan (the Rape Party) all along, and now we know why. Nearly 50 additional witnesses offered to come forward and testify against Kavanaugh – not a single one of these people were interviewed in the ‘allowed’ period. But several published their statements in the newspapers anyway.

Methane Lakes

This is what a methane lake looks like:

Up in the Arctic, inland lakes are bubbling up methane directly into the atmosphere. As a greenhouse gas, this is bad bad news.

Scientists have been puzzling over a dramatic spike in atmospheric methane levels, which since 2006 have averaged 25 million tonnes more of the gas per year. Walter Anthony’s study found that Arctic lakes could more than double this increase as well.

Climate Thoughts

Some thoughts on what humanity is facing as the world continues to warm…

The climate won’t “stabilize” for a very, very long time, far, far past the lifespans of your great, great, great, great, great, great, great… well, you get the idea. Therefore, humanity should be making mitigation and adaption efforts the #1 priority right now, with a focus on food production in a hellish world at the top of a very long list of “to do’s”.

The Carbon Future

We now, in the year 2018, have a carbon problem of such gargantuan size and severity that it now presents an extinction level threat to most, if not all life on Earth no matter what we now do.

This problem remains totally unsolved. This dilemma facing all of humanity, indeed all of life on Earth is truly monumental. It staggers our ability to imagine the scale, scope and complexity of this threat. We’re still trying to come to grips with what this really means. Numerous past articles have tried to do exactly that – this is yet another attempt.

What Lies Beneath (all the lies and disinformation)

There is always more in the news on climate. And it is always bad – if you toss out the false claims, invisible technology and false hopium that is usually interjected into these articles.

If you just stick to the known facts, you will quickly realize that we’re still not being told the whole scope of the problem facing humanity. By now, you will probably also realize that this withholding has been deliberate for many, many years.

We Don’t Have As Much Time As Everyone Thinks

I cannot find any reason to doubt these conclusions, can you?

Estimating the warming rate for each, the highest rate is for the data from Cowtan & Way, a whopping 1.91 ± 0.24 °C per century. The “±” indicates a 95% confidence interval, so the real rate is almost surely between 1.67 and 2.15 °C per century. At those rates, we’ll reach extremely bad sometime between 2036 and 2042….

Musings About Losing Earth

Ho hum… there has been a lot going on since the last time I bothered to weigh in on climate collapse. Vast swaths of California are still burning, as is my own region, and in British Columbia. The air so thick with smoke here, visibility is down to 100 yards, and the most of the fires are hundreds of miles away. But the real news is the useless discussion going on about a New York Time’s article, “Losing Earth“.

143 Million People May Soon Become Climate Migrants

I’ve been warning about this for years: 143 Million People May Soon Become Climate Migrants

Worth reading. The actual number is 2 billion or so. But not before the first several hundred million show up… somewhere.

The United States is not immune to climate refugees of our own, either. The entire Deep South and Southwest will become uninhabitable as wet-bulb temperatures exceed human survivability. No amount of cooling will be possible to make living in these locations doable.

Future Fisheries Deception

Global fisheries to be, on average, 20 percent less productive in 2300, study finds

This article contains numerous misrepresentations and omissions.

a) Global fisheries are already down over 50% NOW.
b) A temperature rise of 4C will result in a catastrophic collapse of civilization.
c) A 9.6C increase will literally mean human extinction (long before).
d) The resulting food chain collapse @4C or even 9C will mean massive species extinction of all mammals. It is also extremely unlikely that any fish will survive at the higher temperatures.

It’s Not A 97% Consensus Now, it’s 100% – And Rush Limbaugh Says “Ignore It All”

As it turns out, the 97% “consensus” on human-caused climate change from our emissions is…… actually 100%.

A study of the 3% “deniers” that did not agree with human caused climate change reveals that they were all flawed in ways which demonstrated “non-repeatability” (their conclusions and results could not be repeated, making them non-scientific).

Arrogance on Wheels

The refusal by the Repugnatin leadership to ‘discuss climate change’ is downright criminal now. Claiming that this in an ‘inappropriate time’ is a pathetic attempt to declare that there is never a appropriate time to discuss what has become the nation’s #1 problem.

Not only should Trump be impeached, but every RepublicRat that denies climate change should be removed from office, asap. (Example: The president’s dismissal of scientific research is doing nothing to protect the livelihoods of ordinary Americans).

Americans Are Not Preparing

Desdemona has a very scary but very real image to share:

Three hurricanes, all lined up. First time in our modern history (ability to record something like this).

And guess what? Americans are not preparing.

Florida and parts of Georgia are under evacuation orders, and the stores in those locations have been swept clean of water, food and supplies, fights over plywood and deadly confrontations now occurring, but nobody is buying any storable food at all.

Harvey Hammers Houston – Hell Unleashed on Global Petrochemical Hub

An enormous storm has engulfed southern Texas – which everyone knows by now. Texas and of course, Houston is a major world-wide petrochemical hub.

Texas has, for the most part, chosen to deny the reality of climate change. The warnings issued years ago fell on increasingly deaf ears:

To the frustration of many, however, that looming threat of the day when, not if, a powerful storm surge descends on one of Texas’ economic engines – ripping above-ground pipes from their fittings, tossing chemical storage tanks like empty soda cans and deluging entire manufacturing plants in brackish salt water – hasn’t led to enough political and economic pressure to build what some consider the region’s only option for keeping a hurricane from sweeping billions of dollars of Houston investment into the sea.

Catastrophe

I’ve refrained so far from making any comments about the deluge occurring in Texas, but definitely have a few things to say. First off, do the math:

Increased temperatures = increases evaporation = increases precipitation = increases storm activity = floods = some which will be ‘catastrophic’

It’s very simple. I’ve seen a lot of claims that this is NOT due to climate change, which is patently ridiculous. When did Texas EVER experience something like this? Or for that matter – anywhere in the world?
