Heat Wave Hits California


A record-breaking heat wave has descended on California, threatening public health and increasing the risk of wildfire.

Heat warnings are in effect around the state as temperatures are projected to reach 110 degrees this weekend in Sacramento, an all-time high for the city, and exceed 110 degrees in other parts of the state.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/08/31/how-hot-is-it-out-here-in-the-america-west/

Power demand is surging as Californians run air conditioners to keep cool, and blackouts have left thousands in LA without power. Global warming  has amplified the intensity, duration and frequency of extreme heat events.

The high overnight lows and high humidity in many areas during this heat wave are particularly characteristic of climate change.

As the Gulf Coast continues to real from the mighty impacts of hurricane Harvey experts are bracing themselves as another tropical threat is gathering strength out in the Atlantic, namely hurricane Irma.

 Irma strengthened into a Category 3 hurricane Thursday afternoon, which has since weakened to a Category 2 hurricane, but restrengthening is expected.

"There is the potential for Irma to ramp up to an even more powerful hurricane this weekend," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.
Irma is expected to reach category 5 next week.

At least 1,200 dead across India, Nepal, and Bangladesh as troops struggled to reach dozens of people trapped after a building collapsed in Mumbai
Emergency services struggled to reach dozens of people trapped after a condemned building collapsed in Mumbai on Thursday morning, killing at least 21 others.

In the days before the incident, torrential rainfall had pounded India's financial capital during an unusually strong monsoon season, which has left more than 1,200 dead across India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Despite the city declaring the building unsafe in 2011, 50 percent of residents - including several families - still lived in the 117-year-old five-story building in the Bhendi Bazar area of India's financial capital, local lawmaker Amin Patel told the Indian Express.  :(

While emergency services responded quickly to a call at 8.30 a.m. local time, the narrow streets and closely packed buildings - some of them also over a century old - are hampering rescue efforts, the Hindustan Times reports.

So far, firefighters have rescued 34 people from the rubble, but a number of other residents still remain unaccounted for.

Buildings often collapse during monsoon season in India, and five inches of rain had fallen in Mumbai on Tuesday, leaving streets in the area flooded and weakening the foundations of thousands of century-old buildings in the city.

Meanwhile the torrential monsoon rains paralyzed India's financial capital Mumbai for a third day Thursday as the streets turned into rivers and people waded through waist-deep waters.

By Thursday the city had received almost 300mm of torrential rain in the last four days, reported the Hindustan Times.

Public transport stopped and thousands of commuters were stranded in their offices overnight.

India's monsoon season runs from June through September.
Since its start this year devastating floods have killed more than 1,000 people across South Asia and affected close to 40 million in northern India, southern Nepal and northern Bangladesh.

The rains have led to wide-scale flooding in a broad arc stretching across the Himalayan foothills in the three countries, causing landslides, damaging roads and electric towers and washing away tens of thousands of homes and vast swathes of farmland, Associated Press reported.

The UK's Guardian reported that the storm reached Pakistan on Thursday, lashing the port city of Karachi.

Local TV footage showed streets were already submerged as the country's meteorological department forecast that the rains would continue for three days in various parts of Sindh province, where authorities closed schools as a precaution. Windstorms and rain are also expected in the south-western Baluchistan and eastern Punjab provinces.

The meteorological department said rains were also expected in the capital, Islamabad, and in Kashmir.

Why was Harvey a Superstorm: expected $ losses greater than Katrina & Sandy combined?

September 1, 2017

I (Paul Beckwith) teach you about how the science of abrupt climate change is turbocharging storms.

Global warming has greatly increased ocean surface and deeper water temperatures, warmer air holds much more water vapour and latent heat, and storms are staying in place much longer due to broken jet streams.  Blame the Arctic.

Paul Beckwith exposes mendacious, as well as ridiculous, misconceptions about the cause of Global Warming

Quote

Sunlight warms Earth’s surface. Heat radiates up and is trapped by greenhouse gases (GHGs).  Human emissions increase GHGs increasing warming.  Right!

Bizarre claims out there say otherwise, and I discuss how they are incorrect.  They include “Chinese hoax”, cosmic rays, magnetosphere change, Grand Solar Minimum, polar shifts, Planet X (Nibaru), volcanoes, HAARP, chemtrails (deployed geoengineering), Fukushima Radiation, NTHE, …

As you can see below, the SST (Sea Surface Temperature) along ALL of Major Hurricane Irma's track (it has been over 100 YEARS since TWO major hurricanes hit the USA in one year - Irma will be the second after Harvey) is at or above the minimum temperature (80º F (26.7º C) needed to FUEL a hurricane.

 


At this link you can see the 'Bermuda' High that has been blocking Irma from moving north (at the 250 hPa atmospheric level - Jet Stream level - see legend in graphic tutorial below.).

The 'Bermuda' High has been moving west right along with Hurricane Irma. This is NOT what a 'Bermuda' High normally does. So, once again, we see strange atmospheric behavior due to Global Warming's crazy Jet Stream meandering.      

Also, use the "CONTROL" arrows to see the hurricane history and projected position and strength.

Be sure to check all the levels from the surface on up (1000 hPa up to 250 hPa) to understand the impact of climate change on hurricanes (click on the word, "EARTH" to open the menu). Ask me questions about the tutorial. I will be glad to answer.  8)

When looking at a hurricane or otherwise using the tool below, it is important to look at the different levels of the atmosphere from the surface up to the Jet Stream. WHY? 

Because you can see how confused the Jet Stream has gotten as a result of GHG caused Global Warming! All those loops and oxbows in the Jet Stream were absent before. Now they cause persistent weather events with days of rains and stalled hurricanes (see: Harvey) and even stalled weather systems that give feet of snow in the  winter. All this is due DIRECTLY to the burning of fossil fuels. The fossil fuel industry is GUILTY of causing this catastrophic climate change. We must hold them accountable for their criminal profit over planet negligence.



Florida is going to be severely impacted by Hurricane Irma.

When Trump    yammers about a "once in 500 year event" (with TWO CATASTROPHIC EVENTS occurring within a MONTH!), be sure to call him a Bought and Paid For Fossil Fuel Industry LIAR!


Please pass this on. People need to know what is going on out there. We need to stop this insane planet polluting, like YESTERDAY!

Arctic air temperatures and the Paris Climate Accord target

Our past reports, and many other sources, have noted that the Arctic region is warming faster than the rest of the globe.

This warming has accelerated in recent years, particularly since 2005. The ten warmest years on record for the Arctic are within the past twelve years, and 2016 was by far the warmest in the record since 1900. These observations are supported by both NOAA National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) reanalysis climate data, and by our colleagues at Berkeley Earth. Berkeley Earth is an independent climate fact- and analysis-checking group dedicated to an objective evaluation of the main claims and data sets used to support climate trends and forecasts.

Figure 5. The bar graph, top, shows the Berkeley Earth evaluation of the ten warmest years since 1979 in the Arctic north of 80°N; the plot, middle, shows Arctic average temperatures for the period 1900 to 2016, relative to a 1951 to 1980 reference period; bottom, a map of Arctic temperature differences, in degrees Celsius, for the 2012 to 2016 period (5 years) relative to a 1981 to 2010 reference period.
Credit: National Snow and Ice Data Center

One of the major statements of the recent Paris Climate Accord, dealing with heat-trapping gas reductions, is a target to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above the pre-industrial average.

While this reference for the increase (pre-industrial average) is somewhat ambiguous, using reference average temperatures of either 1951 to 1980 or 1980 to 2010 for the Arctic shows that much of the area north of 80°N is already above this guideline over the past five years (2012 to 2016).

As the Arctic will likely continue to warm above 2 degrees Celsius, other areas will need to warm less than that if the threshold is not to be exceeded.

In general, land warms about 30 percent faster than oceans in the models, so in a global-average 2 degree Celsius warmer world, much of the global land area would have warmed more than 2 degrees Celsius.

The annual average air temperature for 2016 for the Arctic north of 80°N was more than 3.5 degrees Celsius (6.3 degrees Fahrenheit) above the 1951 to 1980 reference period, the warmest year yet, and most years during the past decade had annual average temperatures between 2 to  2.5 degrees Celsius (3.6 to 4.5 degrees Fahrenheit) above the reference period. Geographically, the NOAA NCEP reanalysis shows that recent warming is primarily located over the Arctic Ocean, and smaller warming trends are seen in the circum-Arctic land areas.

Our leaders must act now to stop burning our tax dollars and stop trashing the climate.”

Hurricane Irma compilation taken during the eye in St Maarten Martin

September 6 2017

Quote

Hurricane Irma was declared one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the Atlantic as it approached the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean, with winds of 185 miles an hour.

There have been storms with comparable winds in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, where warm waters can fuel especially dangerous hurricanes.

The National Hurricane Center described the storm as “potentially catastrophic,” and said it expected the hurricane to bring “life-threatening wind, storm surge and rainfall hazards to portions of the northern Leeward Islands, including the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico” on Wednesday.

Hurricane Irma an Extreme Storm Surge Threat to the U.S. and Bahamas

Dr. Jeff Masters  ·  September 6, 2017, 8:26 PM EDT

SNIPPET:


Figure 7. South Florida is not at as great of a risk of a high storm surge, since there is deep water offshore, and the mound of water the hurricane piles up can flow downward into the deep ocean instead of getting piled up on land. The worst-case storm tide from a Category 4 hurricane for the coast from Miami Beach to West Palm Beach is 7 – 9 feet. However, that deep water allows much larger waves to build up, and Irma will create big waves that will pound the coast and cause heavy damage. There is a region of the coast from downtown Miami southwards, including Biscayne Bay, where the water is shallow, and the storm tide can be up to 15 feet in a Category 4 hurricane. The Great Miami Hurricane of 1926, a Category 4 storm, brought a 10 – 15’ storm surge to the coast of Miami along Biscayne Bay.

Shown here is the Maximum of the "Maximum Envelope of Waters" (MOM) storm tide image for a composite maximum surge for a large suite of possible mid-strength Category 4 hurricanes (sustained winds of 140 mph) hitting at high tide (a tide level of 2.0’) along the coast of South Florida. Not all sections of the coast will experience this surge level simultaneously.

Agelbert NOTE: That loopy Jet Stream pattern you see below is DIRECTLY CAUSED by Global Warming from the burning of fossil fuels (i.e. GHG build up).



If the Jet Stream was not so loopy, neither the stalling of Hurricane Harvey, and all the damage it caused in Texas, OR the massive damage Hurricane Irma is about to cause in Florida would occur. 


The Fossil Fuel Industry and their bought and paid for Lying TOOLS like Trump are FULLY responsible for allowing this to happen, AND ensuring this will get WORSE, because they continue to protect the polluters from legal liability in these disasters.

Hurricanes Irma and Jose AND a HOT ocean in their path PLUS a HOT Gulf of Mexico producing Hurricane Katia  :o
