Global Heat Alert?   ???

Posted on January 24, 2019, by Radio Ecoshock


While Washington spins, here is the real alert. We may be in a rapid shift of warming on Earth. Interviews with top ice scientist Eric Rignot on Antarctic ice rush; Yangyang Xu – fast heat from air cleanup; and Julio Herrera Estrada on super drought science.

It’s very serious. Australia has been hit with yet another summer from Hell. The government warns citizens to stay inside, as temperatures went over 45 degree C, 113 Fahrenheit in parts of New South Wales, South Australia, and Victoria. As reported in thebigwobble blog “In the South Australian town of Port Augusta, temperatures hit 48.5C on Tuesday, the highest since records began in 1962… According to the country’s meteorological bureau, the past four days are among Australia’s top ten warmest days on records.”

Bats and birds are dropping dead ☠️ out of the sky from the heat 🌡️. Millions of fish died. Crops are damaged, and more humans will die ☠️ from heat 🚩.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, December was 3 degrees C, over 5 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal, day and night. The U.S. South and East have been battered by storm after storm, as has California. The Polar vortex split, spattering bitter cold into pockets around the world for short periods, including the U.S. Northeast and Canada where temperatures went up and down as much as 27 degrees in a single day. London was set for “Thunder Snow”. We are in climate disarray.

I am on the phone with scientists trying to find out why things are jumping instead of ramping up more slowly. Last week I covered new science titled “Global warming will happen faster than we think.” Grab that if you missed it. This week I talk with the lead author of that paper, Yangyang Xu. We zero in on the way a cleanup of air pollution, particularly in China, may be revealing hidden heat built up over decades of fossil fuel emissions. Later we will explore the way warming makes big droughts worse, with scientist Julio Herrera Estrada.

But first, we get a briefing from Eric Rignot, Senior Research Scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, and one of the top ice experts in the world. Eric has more staggering news, this time from Antarctica.


Here is the latest shocking headline in this age of climate change: “Antarctica losing six times more ice mass annually now, than 40 years ago”. To explain the breaking science we are joined by Dr. Eric Rignot, Chair of Earth System Science at University of California, Irvine, and Senior Research Scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena.


Look for my follow-up interview with Antarctic specialist Dr. Richard Levy from New Zealand in an upcoming Radio Ecoshock show. There is more amazing (but frightening) new science to come.

It really worthwhile to follow Eric Rignot on Twitter (@erignot)
