There hasn’t been this much CO2 in the air in 3 million years. We have to stop, UN warns
LAST UPDATED ON OCTOBER 31ST, 2017 AT 8:45 PM BY ALEXANDRU MICU


SNIPPET 1:

CO2

It doesn’t look pretty. Overall, the document reports, in 2016, atmospheric concentrations of CO2 hit 403.3 parts per million (ppm), up from 400ppm in 2015.

Quote
“It is the largest increase we have ever seen in the 30 years we have had this network,” Dr Oksana Tarasova, chief of WMO’s global atmosphere watch programme, told BBC news.

“The largest increase was in the previous El Niño, in 1997-1998, and it was 2.7ppm; and now it is 3.3ppm. It is also 50% higher than the average of the last 10 years.”

SNIPPET 2:

Methane (CH4)

One more worrying trend seen by the WMO is a currently-unexplained increase of atmospheric methane  , also larger than the average over the past decade. Growth was strongest in the tropics and subtropics, and carbon isotope analysis has revealed the growth is not released by burning fossil fuels; it’s not clear where it is coming from. The worst-case scenario, researchers fear, is that we’re looking at the start of a feedback mechanism.



full article:

https://www.zmescience.com/science/wmo-report-gas-bulletin/

Agelbert NOTE: Guess what tiny colony living insect, with a GIGANTIC total biomass on earth, which also just happens to THRIVE on HOT WEATHER (i.e. they live mostly in the tropics and subtropics which just happen to be getting a lot hotter because of Global Warming) produces a LOT of methane (MUCH more than cows, pound for pound) as part of their normal metabolic process?

Termite Metabilism

But there is more to this story that is severely lacking in big picture analysis of cause and effect. The Fossil Fuel Industry is NOT off the hook, though the article on methane wants to make it look that way.

WHY is the Fossil Fuel Industry the main culprit here? Isotope analysis of methane means the type of carbon isotope in the methane, because the isotopes of hydrogen are the ones the nuclear bomb makers (see "heavy" water) and nuclear power plants (see tritium and deuterium) control rather effectively.

So, how do they "know" the carbon isotope in the CH4 is not from burning fossil fuels?


12C & 13C:

These two stable isotopes of carbon are found naturally on Earth. Living matter (i.e., bacteria and plants) takes up carbon through CO2 in the atmosphere. This matter is often isotopically selective, generally preferring to break the weaker, light-isotope bonds. Fractionation is constrained to definable ranges for relatively stable environmental conditions. Measuring this fraction, 13C/12C or d13C, enables the research scientist to determine a variety of factors regarding a particular sample.
http://web.sahra.arizona.edu/programs/isotopes/carbon.html

Logically, the assumption the scientists quoted in the article must have made is that the extra CH4 in the tropics and subtropics is from living metabolic processes because it mostly contains the weaker, light-isotope bond carbon atoms.

But the Fossil Fuel Industry rampant burning of fossil fuels, which causes global warming, is the reason MORE metabolic activity from gut baccteria in the tropics and subtropics is occurring.

Also, I am flabbergasted by the article's silence on the massive increase in methane now occurring in the arctic due to thawing permafrost and thawing clathrates on the sea bed. I mean, they write an article making it rather clear that we are in a horribly dire runaway greenhouse and decide NOT to talk about the rapid increase in methane emissions in the arctic? 

And what about all those leaking, recently tapped out fracked wells. that produce methane? Are they trying to avoid discussing the increase in methane in the USA and Canada because, conveniently, the EPA REFUSES to measure it? It sure looks that way.  >:(



So, yeah, methane producing gut (and ground) bacteria are very happy with increased average global temperatures. And, yeah, methane in that ground is going to be mostly the light carbon isotope type. But the methane from fracked wells is proportionately increasing as more fracking is done. Anybody that has a shred of scientific objectivity must assume that there is MORE methane being released now that there are MORE fracked wells out there, both active and inactive, contributing to the methane problem. Methane is 86 times more powerful as a greenhouse gas than CO2. so you don't need a lot of it to goose global warming.

I am rather sick of these articles that go out of there way to let the fossil fuel polluters off the hook. The fossil Fuel Industry is THE CAUSE of all the warming. They need to be held responsible for the increased bacteria producing methane as well as as the increased fracked gas methane.

But the article does provide a great tallking point to knock down one of the fossil fuel industry's favorite duplicitous claims. They claim that CH4 (i.e. methane) from fracked wells and also the refining of crude oil is "natural" gas. It is, CLEARLY, because of its carbon isotope content, NOT NATURAL (i.e. not from bacterial metabolism). Only methane from cows, pig poop, human poop, tundra thawing anaerobic processes, termites, etc. is NATURAL gas. Tell them that methane from fossil fuel industry activity is UNnatural gas. Tell them that carbon isotope ratios prove that. Tell them they are full of baloney when they claim their crap polluting product is "natural" gas. Tell them they should stop lying to people about that.

Then ignore the verbal effluent they spew out.




The Fossil Fuelers DID THE Clean Energy  Inventions suppressing, Climate Trashing, human health depleting CRIME,   but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars and conscience free crooks, they are trying to AVOID   DOING THE TIME or     PAYING THE FINE!     Don't let them get away with it! Pass it on!

Bulk Carrier Goes Aground During Deadly Storm in Germany

October 30, 2017 by Reuters


The photo provided by Germany’s Central command for maritime emergencies shows the Panama-flagged bulk carrier Glory Amsterdam which ran aground off the shore of the German island of Langeoog on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017. Germany was hit by a heavy storm on Sunday.

SNIPPET:

BERLIN, Oct 30 (Reuters) – Shallow waters off a North Sea island complicated efforts on Monday to dislodge a large freighter that ran aground as Germany began cleaning up after a storm that killed at least six people there and in Poland and Czech Republic.

Railway operator Deutsche Bahn continued to deal with “significant damage” from downed trees on some rail routes. Service will be limited in parts of northern Germany, DB said, after being suspended in large parts of the north and centre of the country on Sunday, stranding thousands of travellers.

The non-profit environmental group World Wildlife Fund said the oil on board continued to pose a significant risk to the Wadden Sea, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and renewed its call for a worldwide ban on heavy oil for use as ship fuel. 

The Wadden Sea is the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world. Including sand banks, salt marshes and dunes, it stretches from the Netherlands to neighbouring Germany and Denmark.

“Numerous wading birds, ducks and geese that are resting there at the moment would be endangered by the oil” if the ship broke up, Hans-Ulrich Rosenberg, a mud flat expert with WWE, said in a statement.
 
Elsewhere in Germany, Deutsche Bahn said rail traffic on a number of key routes – including the heavily travelled line from Hamburg to Berlin – would resume on Monday afternoon.

Thousands of travellers were stranded on Sunday, with some seeking shelter in special sleeping cars provided at stations. Trains that resumed service on Monday were crammed so full that some passengers had to disembark. (Reporting by Andrea Shalal; editing by Mark Heinrich)

Radio Ecoshock

November 1, 2017

THIS ISN’T NORMAL!  :o

“Normal” TV weather casting sucks so badly. We just had amazing record heat in California at the end of October. When it’s over 100 degrees day after day in California, it’s way too late to deny climate change is real. Then we have very strong storms (can you say “extreme weather event”) in New England. And of course the American press doesn’t even bother reporting even stronger storms in Germany and Eastern Europe. In the port of Hamburg the seas were more than a meter above normal, flooding the fish market. Millions lost power, with flooding all over. It’s NOT NORMAL!!

Thank you for listening this week, and my thanks to everyone who supports this show. Many of you did make donations, or signed up as subscribing listeners. Frankly, I got enough to cover the costs of producing and distributing the program, but not enough to actually pay me any kind of wage for doing this. Oh well, I love the opportunity you give me to talk with such brilliant people. Plus, I just can’t quit while a series of threats are so plainly developing. On with the show!

If you can still help, please find out how here.

Please tell your friends and your electronic friends about Radio Ecoshock. That helps get the word out too.

Agelbert NOTE: Cleantechnica just got the word on the article GWarnock posted here a couple of days ago.

National Climate Report Finds Virtually ALL Global Temperature Rise Since 1950 Caused By Human Activity

November 5th, 2017 by Steve Hanley

SNIPPET:

Who will the Walton family sell their low-priced products to then? What good will fossil fuels be if there are no cars to drive, homes to heat, or factories to run? Will anyone even know we were here a million years from now when the waters recede and all records of our existence have been lost? Will genetic mutations make the next humans smart enough to work together rather than devising new and interesting ways of killing each other? Based on the history of humanity to date, the most likely answer is no.

Storm Herwart Sweeps Across Germany, Czech Republic, Poland

History in ruins - In Oldenswort in Schleswig Holstein, a historic windmill fell victim to storm Herwart. Windmill Catharina was built in 1786 and was a huge draw among tourists, who could rent a room inside the historical structure.


Under the water - The Elbe River breached its banks in Hamburg, flooding a nearby parking lot. Fire fighters in the city have received 500 calls to deal with emergency situations.


Berlin: state of emergency - The Berlin fire brigade declared a state of emergency early Sunday as Herwart roared over the German capital. One person was seriously injured when scaffolding from a construction site fell on him.


Flood of calls - The Berlin fire brigade said it had received 100 emergency phone calls between 4 a.m. (0300 GMT) and 7 a.m. It has requested all volunteer fire fighters to report for duty


Trees uprooted - The storm has uprooted several trees in the affected regions. No casualties or injuries have been reported in Germany so far due to falling trees.

Moyers and McKibben: What to Do When Time Is Running Out for the Planet

By Bill Moyers

SNIPPET:

Moyers: For me the question now is how much time do we have? When it comes to global warming, all signs suggest we are running out of time.

McKibben: The question of time is the question that haunts me. I remain optimistic enough to think that in general human beings will figure out the right thing to do eventually, and Americans will somehow get back on course. Of course, there'll be a lot of damage done in the meantime. But with climate change in particular—the gravest of the problems we face—time is the one thing we don't have. It's the only problem we've ever had that came with a time limit. And if we don't solve it soon, we don't solve it. Our governments so far have not proven capable of dealing with this question. They simply haven't been able to shake off the self-interest and massive power of the fossil-fuel industry. It's going to take a lot of work and a lot of effort to get us onto renewable energy quickly and everywhere. It's doable technically; the question is whether it's doable politically or not. There I don't know.

MV Ever Smart Arrives in Los Angeles with Toppled Containers

November 10, 2017 by gCaptain


MV Ever Smart alongside in Los Angeles on November 9, 2017.

The MV Ever Smart arrived at the port of Los Angeles on Wednesday showing clear evidence of the dozens of containers which were lost from the vessel during its voyage across the Pacific.

As gCaptain reported previously, the British-flagged Ever Smart lost 42 containers overboard approximately 700nm east of Japan on October 30, 2017. The UK MAIB has launched an investigation into the incident.

The incident occurred as the ship was underway from Taipei, Taiwan to the Port of Los Angeles.

Although the MAIB investigation will seek to determine the cause of the accident, on the day the containers were lost, meteorologists were tracking a powerful hurricane force low-pressure system over the northwestern Pacific.
