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.

    In reality, fact trumps opinion, Fantasy denies reality, and is thereby exterminated. Reality is that which when you cease believing it doesn’t go away. Ecocide by reality denial defines the human predicament. A problem may have solution but predicaments have consequences. All problems are temporal and consequences are forever.

    Lily Tomlin said “Reality is a crutch for people who can’t cope with drugs” and “No matter how cynical you get, it is impossible to keep up.” PJ Plaauger wrote,” My definition of an expert in any field is a person who knows enough about what is really going on to be scared.” [Corollary: If you are not outraged then you are not paying attention]. Elbert Hubbard opined, ” Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not this handicapped.” Bethany McKenstry lamented, ” I’m not sure I want popular opinion on my side – I’ve noticed those with the most opinions have the fewest facts.” Arthur C Clarke stated, “It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value.” “Learning is not compulsory … and neither is survival. ~W. Edward Deming. Finally, Mignon McLaughlin explains, “No one really listens to anyone else, and if you try it for a while you’ll understand why.” et cetera ad infinitum

    Antarctic sea ice extent more than 2 million km2 below the 2000s average and declining rapidly suggests a record low is likely in February-March 2017.


    And less ice is likely to lead to more heat transfer to Antarctic waters, thereby destablising ice sheet grounding a little faster.
