Climate Change 2021 – the physical science basis

SNIPPET:

This blog post is a short summary of key points that are of current relevance to society from the physical science of climate change. It is based on the headline statements of a report published in 2021 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC is a United Nations body responsible for providing impartial assessments of climate science. Its reports inform international negotiations on tackling climate change.

Written by Jonathan Gregory, Matt Palmer and Ed Hawkins

How and why has the climate changed?

Widespread and rapid changes have taken place in the atmosphere, in the ocean and on land. There is no doubt that the climate has warmed because human activities have increased the amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, especially carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4).

Greenhouse gases warm the climate by making it harder for the atmosphere to radiate heat into the surrounding universe (space). They insulate the atmosphere against losing heat, rather like making it warmer inside a house by insulating the roof. The physics of this greenhouse effect has been understood for more than a century.

The largest human-caused effect on climate is due to the build-up of CO2, mostly from burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas). The size and speed of recent changes in many aspects of the climate system exceed any seen for hundreds or thousands of years (Figure 1).

Figure 1: Changes since the year 1 (of the Common Era, or AD) in the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and in the global-average surface temperature. The industrial revolution and the burning of fossil fuels to produce energy began with the invention of the steam engine.

The warming causes changes in many other aspects of climate. For example, many extreme weather and climate events in every region across the globe have already become more severe or more frequent due to human-caused climate change (Figure 2).

Figure 2: This diagram depicts how much more often extremely high temperatures occur as the climate gets warmer. As an example, it considers the temperature which was reached only once in 50 years on average at any given place in the climate before the industrial revolution. This extreme happens more frequently in today’s climate, and will become still more common in warmer climates.

What climate change will happen in future?

Improved scientific knowledge has narrowed the range of warming expected as a result of increasing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

I wanted to thank you for posting this well written and comprehensive article; that is aimed at explaining these issues to the most important audience of all the non-specialists who need to wake up in their millions and billions and demand change and also to do what they can in their lives.

I was very busy with my personal life, and was writing a long article for The Class Struggle about China and Covid, so I am very late to the discussion here. I have not yet read your part 2 but will do so in the next couple of days.

I am an Environmental Geographer by training and also hold undergraduate degrees in biology and chemistry, so I am conversant with these issues. But people like me are not the ones who need to be seriously informed about this ever deepening crisis, and your article seems to be right on th emoney for average reasonably well-educated people who want to grapple with these issues. There is no escape from this; and that is infinitely more true for the younger people of this planet.

Thank you, my friend. It is an honor to have your interest and approval. Please feel free to pass on any information and/or graphics in my articles and posts with or without attribution. The main thing is to get as many people as possible on board with the unvarnished reality of our climate crisis. 🚩

The 🦖 Power Pentagon

SNIPPETS:

Power Pentagon is the following closed cycle of ego-driven ambition for personal power:

fossil fuel —> 💰🎩 economic power —> 🦍 military power —> 🐷 political power —> 💥 war power —> 😈🦖 fossil fuel.

The continuing existence of Power Pentagons as the foundation of our international relations is the reason that we are not making, nor will make, the socio-economic alterations to our civilization needed to effectively slow the advance of Global Warming Climate Change (GWCC), and to arrive at a stable balance between the workings of our industrialized civilization with the cycles of Nature. ... ...

The obvious image for this desired future state of human affairs would be World Eco-Socialism: a world socialism powered with “green” energy (infrastructure not emitting greenhouse gases, toxic wastes, and pollutants), and with both poverty and extreme wealth made history. 

For any such green utopian reformulation of human civilization to occur, it will be necessary for us humans to remove the limitations we place on our own species’s societal development by remaining mired in the fractious international politics of the clashes of Power Pentagons — “the Great Game” — which has been the case since long before the days of Lawrence of Arabia.

Alaska Worries For Its Salmon Run As Climate Change Warms Arctic

SNIPPETS:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Feb 25 (Reuters) – With marine heat waves helping to wipe out some of Alaska’s storied salmon runs in recent years, officials have resorted to sending emergency food shipments to affected communities while 📢 scientists warn that the industry’s days of traditional harvests may be numbered.

Salmon all but disappeared from the 2,000-mile (3,200-km) Yukon River run last year, as record-high temperatures led to the fish piling up dead in streams and rivers before they were able to spawn. A study published Feb. 15 in the journal Fisheries detailed more than 100 salmon die-offs at freshwater sites around Alaska.

Those losses meant that, even as temperatures were milder in 2021, the Yukon River salmon runs remained so anemic that both Alaska and Canada were forced to halt their salmon harvest to ensure enough fish survived to reproduce for another year.

“Alaska is known for salmon and being cold,” said Vanessa von Biela, a U.S. Geological Survey research biologist and lead author of the study on the 2019 die-offs. Now “we have basically the problems that have been known for a long time at the lower latitudes.”

...  ...

Last month, the U.S. commerce secretary declared a disaster for the Yukon River fishery for both years, making federal relief funds available.

The state sent emergency fish shipments last year from the more plentiful salmon in Bristol Bay and elsewhere.

Scientists mostly have blamed ocean warming, with a series of heat waves in the Bering Sea and North Pacific Ocean from 2014 to 2019 affecting salmon living in the sea before their return to spawning grounds.

Can we survive the coming decades


Just Have a Think 382K subscribers

Can we survive the coming decades? Given the state of global affairs today, that's probably a question many people are asking themselves right now. The IPCC has just published their answer, at least from a climate point of view. And they pull no punches. We're almost out of time, they say, and we need immediate global geopolitical cooperation to succeed. Oh dear!

The follow article deals with material survival only. Even if that works for some materially wealthy millions, it does nothing to correct the morally bankrupt Social Darwinist ideology responsible for much of our civilization's spiritual depravity.

Climate Change Is Transforming Europe’s Birds 🤦‍♂️

A new study has found that the climate crisis is causing major disruptions to European birds, from shifting their nesting dates to decreasing their chick numbers to even changing their general body sizes.

The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that rising temperatures and non-temperature effects of climate change are transforming European birds, such as garden warblers, chiffchaffs, and crested t i t.

Climate change is already impacting the maple sugaring industry

SNIPPETS:

“My father’s saying was that we made the bulk of our syrup in April. That’s definitely not the case now,” Richardson said. March brings the harvest now.

The wooden sugar house, first built in the 1960s, is perched at the crest of a snow-covered hill. The Richardsons harvest wood from their forest, bind it into bundles just the right size for the tractor, and pile the bundles above the sugar house.

Inside, the Richardsons mark the dates and yields each year on a sheet of freezer paper. A three-ring binder in the sugar house holds sheets that go back to 1981. Forty years is short in terms of the 115-year history of the Richardsons on the farm, and even shorter in terms of climatological history. Still, it is enough time to see a change. The first February boil was in 2012. Since then, six years — including this one — have begun with February boils. ... ...

Warm weather spells trouble. Bacteria swimming in a food source of sugar multiply when below-freezing temperatures don’t keep them down. “Ropey syrup” has a bacteria count so high that it cannot boil; it turns into a phlegmy, sticky pudding.

In 2021, warm weather cut off the season in early April. Sugarers across the Upper Valley saw yields far below their anticipated harvest, and sap production was down between 25% and 50%. In 2012, a stretch of March days when temperatures soared into the seventies scorched away the season.

“It only takes two or three days 65 to 75 degrees and sunny to basically kill the season for you,” said Richard Menge, who sugars at Maple Leaf Farm in Lyme, New Hampshire.

Not that my comment matters much,
but just observing winters in Belgium over the past 20 years,
one could also work out a warming trend.
No actual calculations needed,
when it suddenly doesn't snow during winter
and people start planting tropical plants in Belgium within their gardens,
this bc the trend is going towards even warmer winters.
One might already think that the end of the Ice age will also be seen.
(and yes, anyone with at least some knowledge in the matter understands that we're currently in a interglacial period,
known as the holocene
and that the end of the Plestocene marks the end of a glacial period, not the the ice age.)
Tbh, not looking forward towards geological evidence of Europe being just a collection of shattered islands.
Even though a hotter climate may sound nice,
damage towards personal property will be catastrophic.

Luckily I myself will never see this happening within my life time,
I hope?
