I just signed this petition [http://bit.ly/EnergyIndependentVTPetition] for a new Vermont campaign to put a price on carbon pollution.    I know that, like me, you are concerned about global warming. This is a really important chance for Vermont to do something real about it. I urge you to take action yourself and spread the word!  You can learn more about the Energy Independent Vermont campaign at www.energyindendependentvt.org.

5 to 6 feet of Lake Effect Snow in Buffalo is ANOTHER "Gift" from the fossil fuel industry thanks to Global Warming.  

30 VERY DESCRIPTIVE (and prophetic as well) pictures about the NEW NORMAL:  :P

http://www.bostonglobe.com/2014/11/18/snow-pummels-parts-new-york/2AjgJVxR6dL5obDl5U7f1L/story.html?pic=1

WHY is 5 to 6 feet of Lake Effect Snow in one shot ANOTHER "Gift" from the fossil fuel industry thanks to Global Warming? Because when those lakes DON'T FREEZE quickly, a cold front from the crazy wiggling jet stream we are now saddled with picks up GOBS of humidity and DUMPS them on the nearest land mass. I lived in Syracuse from 1979-1981. Syracuse got 155 inches of snow each year back then. Most of it was lake effect from a smallish lake called Onandaga. It didn't freeze quickly because it was "graced" with world class anti-freeze from factory chemical pollution (All those "progress through chemistry" goodies like paint and formica were never free, YA KNOW!).

Buffalo was just ahead of us in snowfall with the U.S. record back then. NOW it will be a bonanza growth industry for roof repair contractors. ANOTHER COST  :P that we-the-people must pay so fossil fuels can be "cheap". ::)   


A child in Buffalo ponders the future. I hope he learns soon that the fossil fuel industry must PAY for the present AND future damage that  their SO CALLED "cheap" fuel visited on him and his generation.

How global warming will cause more lake-effect snow

By Tim Kovach | March 20, 2014  - 9:29 AM |  Cleveland, Climate Change

SNIPPET:

The evidence

So what does the evidence say? Do we have research to backup this seemingly counterintuitive  outcome? In a word, yes. 

In a 2003 study, Burnett et al examined long-term changes in lake-effect snowfall (paywall) and compared them with October-April snowfall totals and air temperatures from 1931-2001. According to the authors, lake-effect snowfall totals increased significantly at 11 of 15 sites studied. Their research also demonstrated that lake surface temperatures increased significantly at the majority of sites examined. Consequently, they concluded that


ncreased lake-effect snowfall is the result of changes in Great lakes whole-lake thermal characteristics that involve warmer lake surface waters and a decrease in lake ice cover.

While the Burnett et al piece is now more than a decade old, several additional studies have largely supported its findings. Vavrus, Notaro, and Zarrin examined how ice cover affected a subset of 10 heavy lake-effect snow (HLES) events in order to quantify the impact of the ice. They found that “the suppression of open water [i.e. expansion of ice cover] on the individual lakes causes over an 80% decline in downstream” HLES. Ice cover on Lake Erie lowered snowfall by 73%, while Lake Michigan saw a reduction of nearly 100%.

The authors note that ice cover reduces heat fluxes over the lakes, lowers atmospheric moisture, stymies cloud formation, and depresses near-surface air temperatures. All of these changes can suppress lake-effect. For all five lakes, complete ice cover reduces downstream snowfall by 85%. As a result,

The results of the current study suggest that this change toward more open water  :P should favor significantly greater lake-effect snowfall.

Wright, Posselt, and Steiner conducted a similar study, examining the relative amount and distribution of snowfall under four different models: a control (observed lake ice in mid-January 2009), complete ice cover, no ice cover, and warmer lake surface temperatures. The authors also show that moving from complete ice cover to no ice cover dramatically increases lake-effect totals. The total area seeing small (≤2mm) and large (≥10mm) lake-effect events increase by 28% and 93%, respectively. In contrast, while elevated lake surface temperatures do not increase the area affected by lake-effect, they do tend to increase the amount of heavy snowfall; areas that already experienced HLES saw 63% more snowfall.

It remains important to note that, while higher lake surface temperatures and reduced ice cover should lead to more lake-effect snow during the coming decades, a decrease in the number of cold-air outbreaks could work to counter this effect. But if lake-effect increases, as the preponderance of evidence suggests it will, it could carry major additional economic costs for Great Lakes states. According to a study of 16 states and two Canadian provinces from IHS Global Insight, snowstorms can costs states $66-700 million in direct and indirect losses per day if they render roads impassable. Great Lakes states had among the most significant losses, with Ohio forfeiting $300 million per day and New York leading the pack at $700 million.   

Additional major lake-effect events will only serve to drive up this price tag even more, further constraining limited state and municipal budgets well into the future.

Watch NASA's Video: What Carbon Looks Like in the Atmosphere

SustainableBusiness.com News

In July, NASA launched the first satellite into space dedicated to measuring carbon levels in the atmosphere, the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2).


 Every day, it takes a million high-resolution measurements  :o,
and scientists released the first video that displays how this invisible gas travels around the world.

 Their simulation shows plumes of carbon swirling and shifting as winds disperse the greenhouse gas away from its sources. It also illustrates differences in carbon levels in the northern and southern hemispheres and distinct swings in global carbon concentrations as the growth cycle of plants and trees changes with the seasons, says NASA.

For decades, scientists have been measuring carbon levels from the ground, but this is the first time it is being measured from space. The simulation is a product of a new computer model that is among the highest-resolution ever created - and the first to show in fine detail how carbon moves through the atmosphere.

The computer uses atmospheric measurements to create a simulation of the natural behavior of carbon in the Earth's atmosphere, which they call "Nature Run." It also simulates winds, clouds, water vapor and airborne particles such as dust, black carbon, sea salt and emissions from industry and volcanoes.

Much remains unknown about how carbon moves from an emissions source to the atmosphere or to carbon sinks such as oceans and forests. OCO-2 and computer modeling will help scientists better understand the processes that drive carbon concentrations and project future changes to our climate.

Watch the video!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1SgmFa0r04&feature=player_embedded

The colors represent a range of carbon concentrations, from 375 parts per million (dark blue) to 385 (red) to 395 (light purple). White plumes represent carbon monoxide  :P  emissions.



 Also, watch NASA's regional videos which hone in on North America, Asia, and southern Africa:

All those putrid fruits of profit over people and planet have been building since the Industrial Pollution Revolution. But now they are all coming to a massive and deadly crescendo. :(

This is analogous to tumor growth. This is NOT a benign tumor...





The Fossil Fueler Predatory Capitalist Profit over Planet mentality is a CANCER. IT CANNOT do ANYTHING but GROW. We kill it or it kills us, PERIOD. 
 


CAN HUMANS CHANGE from paradigm of conscience free conquest a TO A PARADIGM of CARING?   We will soon find out...

Storm cuts power, lifts roofs in Brisbane

Updated: 2014-11-28 11:12



Golf ball-sized hail batters Brisbane, Australia, Nov 27, 2014

BRISBANE - Brisbane, Australia's third-largest city, was lashed by its worst storm in decades, with wind, rain and hail lifting roofs, cutting power lines, flooding streets and injuring a dozen people, officials said.

State-owned electricity supplier Energex said Friday that up to 90,000 homes had been without power, with trees and hundreds of power lines brought down by winds gusting at 140 kph (87 mph). By Friday morning, 68,000 homes remained blacked out.

The storm struck late Thursday afternoon, trapping commuters for hours in stalled electric trains. Television news broadcasts showed downtown high-rise windows smashed, light planes flipped upside down on an airfield and cars almost completely submerged in flooded streets.

Queensland state Premier Campbell Newman described the storm as the worst to hit the city of 2.2 million people since 1985. He said 12 people had been injured.

Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported that the convention center that hosted President Barack Obama and other world leaders at the G-20 summit two weeks ago had sustained hail and water damage.

The army was called in to help emergency crews remove fallen trees Friday morning.
