David Wallace-Wells, "The Uninhabitable Earth"
13,784 views


Politics and Prose
Published on Mar 19, 2019
David Wallace-Wells discusses his book, "The Uninhabitable Earth", at Politics and Prose on 3/12/19.

Expanding on his July 2017 New York magazine article—called “the Silent Spring of our time” and the most-read piece in the magazine’s history—Wallace-Wells’s new book is an unsparing look at the realities of climate change and the consequences of our continuing failure to face them.

Pointing to the increase in storms of unprecedented magnitude, the now year-round wildfires, and the rising oceans, Wallace-Wells argues that climate change is well under way, and that its impact will be more severe than even our worst-case scenarios indicate.

Writing with passion and urgency, Wallace-Wells, a national fellow at the New America foundation and a columnist and deputy editor at New York, goes beyond the science of climate change to show that it’s an existential crisis so severe that it will reshape every aspect of human life.

Alaska On Fire

Fires 🔥🔥🔥 are raging over Alaska. The satellite image below shows the situation on July 8, 2019.



As the image below shows, carbon monoxide levels were as high as 43,443 ppb over Alaska on July 8, 2019.



As the image below shows, carbon dioxide levels were as high as 561 ppm over that same spot in Alaska on July 8, 2019.



The situation looks set to further deteriorate as high temperatures 🌡️ 😓 are forecast for Alaska. The image below shows a forecast for July 10, 2019, of temperatures as high as 35.5°C or 95.8°F.



What drives up temperatures?

The image below shows very high sea surface temperature anomalies around Alaska on July 8, 2019.


Furthermore, changes to the jet stream are caused by the rapid heating of the Arctic. As the Arctic heats up faster than the rest of the world, the jet stream becomes more wavy.

These high temperatures in Alaska are also warming up the water of rivers, causing warm water to flow into the seas around Alaska. Furthermore, fires are causing soot to be deposited on mountains and sea ice, further speeding up the demise of the snow and ice cover in the Arctic. The image below shows a deformed jet stream (forecast for July 9, 2019).


The situation is dire and calls for comprehensive and effective action, as described in the Climate Plan.

Agelbert NOTE: THe Mississippi water level you sea below on the Carrollton Gage is about 4 FEET ABOVE where it normally is when a Hurricane hits New Orleans. You see, hurricanes normally hit later in the year (late August to September) when the Mississippi is not flooding. When river flooding meets a hurricane or tropical storm, as it is about to do NOW (thanks to Catastrophic Climate Change), the levees may breach and, once again, New Orleans will flood massively.

The Army so-called "Corps of Engineers" (a military + corporate = fascist organization from the word go) will NEVER properly address Catastrophic Climate Change. Don't count on their multi-billion dollar "anti-flood" infrastructure boondoggles (that we-the-people, instead of the 🦖 Hydrocarbon Hellspawn polluters causing this climate mayhem, are ALWAYS forced to pay for) to stop the destruction. They just see "business opportunities" in climate disasters.



New Orleans’ Achilles Heel: A Hurricane Storm Surge During a Mississippi River Flood?

Dr. Jeff Masters  ·  July 10, 2019, 5:28 PM EDT

SNIPPET:

Figure 5. Water level at the Carrollton gage on the Mississippi River at New Orleans during the passage of Hurricane Isaac in August 2012. Prior to Isaac's arrival the river was running just two feet above its record low. Isaac drove a storm surge of ten feet to New Orleans. Levees on the Mississippi protect New Orleans to a stage height of 20 feet above sea level, so Isaac's storm surge was nine feet below the tops of the levees. Image credit: NOAA Tides and Currents.

Armoring the levees

I've been reviewing the vulnerability of New Orleans in the wake of the $14.6 billion upgrade to the levee system since Katrina. One interesting feature is the "armoring" of the levees that has occurred--fabric mats that grass can grow through have been installed along the inside of key stretches of the levee system, which should greatly reduce or eliminate the chances of overtopping causing a levee breach. The Army Corps states that the armoring will mean that the city will just flood to a depth of 5' in an overtopping situation, greatly reducing damages. That’s much lower than the 15 to 20 feet of inundation in the lowest locations in the New Orleans from the multiple levee breaches and floodwall failures that occurred during Hurricane Katrina.

Unfortunately, this armoring project is not yet complete, and the inside portions of the levees along the Mississippi River protecting New Orleans have not received armoring. This means that if the storm surge from a hurricane moves up the Mississippi River and overtops the levees, there is the potential that water flowing over them could scour their base and undermine the structure, causing a breach--a serious situation that could lead to life-threatening inundations like Hurricane Katrina wrought.

Melt season shifts into high gear

July 2, 2019

After a period of slow ice loss in the middle of June, Arctic sea ice loss ramped up, and extent at the end of the month fell below 2012, the year which ended up with the lowest September ice extent in the satellite record. A pattern of atmospheric circulation favored ice loss this June, which was also characterized by above average temperatures over most of the Arctic Ocean, and especially in the Laptev and East Siberian Seas.

A record melt event in mid-June

July 1, 2019

ShareShare

Between June 11 and 20, an extensive area of the Greenland ice sheet surface melted. At its peak on June 12, thawing climbed from the western and eastern coasts to elevations above 3,000 meters (9,800 feet). High air pressure and clockwise circulation around the island brought warm air from the south and sunny conditions. While several recent years have had similar early widespread melt events, the event of June 11 to 20 reached a peak of just over 700,000 square kilometers (270,000 square miles), setting a record for this early in the melt season. Models estimate the amount of melted ice at approximately 80 billion tons for that period. 👀


Rapid drop in albedo along the western flank
The recent extensive melt event exacerbated early melting in the ablation area, where bare ice becomes exposed by early warming. The bottom photograph shows dark exposed ice, melt ponds, and residual winter snow on June 12 near the upper edge of the bare ice region on the Greenland ice sheet.

I just watched this short video. It's a great video (years ago I watched the excellent video this is a sequel of) and I recommend you view it and pass it on to others. It brought tears to my eyes because, though everything the people in this Sci-Fi Story did is so obviously necessary to preserve a viable biosphere, so logical, so reasonable, so possible, so realistic, so right and so beautiful, I have lost all hope that our God rejecting, self-worshipping, narcissistic, profit over people and planet dominated society will do that.

May God help us because TPTB never will. I will continue to do all I can to keep my carbon footprint tiny until I take my last breath. It's the right thing to do, even if it's a quixotic, insignificant drop in the bucket compared with the 24/7 worldwide 'business as usual' biosphere destroying pollution assault.

The Age of Stupid (10th Anniversary Mini-Sequel)

"Why didn't we save ourselves when we had the chance?" is The Archivist's question.  He is one of the last few humans alive the a post-climate change,
devastated world of 2055

And this is the direction we are headed folks.

If you did not see The Age of Stupid when it came out (2010) then you are really missing the best movie on climate change we've seen. It's available on YouTube at no cost, and on several other movie streaming platforms.  See it.  This tongue-in-cheek 'mini-sequel' will make much more sense.  Granted that this one is shorter.  So if you watch it first, perhaps it will whet your appetite for the 'real deal' (which was more 'kick in the pants' than 'tongue in cheek').

This is a prophetic movie. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

A quick, low-res copy is here...


But I'd strongly recommend you pay the nominal amount to view it on one of the video services.  I don't think the investors ever even got their money back on this gem.

How 2030 is the new 2100: Global Food Yields Already Dropping from Abrupt Climate Change
3,048 views


Paul Beckwith
Published on Jul 12, 2019

2030 is the new 2100. Climate change is ALREADY reducing global food yields TODAY, with an average 1% annual reduction in the worlds top ten global crops, providing 83% of food calories to humanity: top ten food crops: barley, cassava, maize (corn), oil palm, rapeseed (canola), rice, sorghum, soybean, sugarcane, wheat. Most reduced: oil palm (-13.4%); increased: soybeans (+3.5%). Negatively affected regions are Europe, South Africa, and Australia; +ve is Latin America; mixed is Asia, North and Central America. Growing season temperatures over all harvested areas is up 0.5 to 1.2 C since the early 1970s.
