Climate Restoration with Ocean Fertilization

Filling our Oceans with Fish to Calm Climate / Published on Feb 16, 2018

Anecdotes from a century ago talk of an ocean teeming with life.  Legends abound of there being so many fish in oceans that you could literally walk on the surface across their backs!!

Picture getting back to an ocean like that again, and think of how much better our world would be if the CO2 that is screwing up weather and climate and acidifying our oceans was inside the plants and animals in oceans.  Fertilizing seas is the way to having that world again, while restoring our climate to that of our grandchildren.

Ref:  The Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB) Program developed this website as a clearinghouse of ocean fertilization news and informational resources to: 1) increase public knowledge and awareness on this topic, and 2) advance scientific research to improve our understanding of the implications of ocean fertilization for marine ecosystems.

Climate Restoration with Ocean Fertilization / Published on Feb 15, 2018

Climate Restoration has one basic objective: Intergenerational Equity.  We MUST stabilize climate for our grandchildren by restoring the chemistry of our Atmosphere and Oceans to that of our grandparents. We MUST slash fossil fuel emissions, restore Arctic albedo, and deploy Carbon Dioxide Removal.  Ocean Fertilization is our best option (scalable, rapid deployment, will suck vast amounts of CO2 out of our atmosphere/oceans, capable of restoring teeming marine ecosystems of our recent past, bending exponentially rising curves downwards…).

Climate Restoration with Carbon Dioxide Removal

Climate Restoration with Carbon Dioxide Removal / Published on Feb 14, 2018

Slashing global fossil fuel emissions is necessary, but no longer sufficient to restore our climate to stability.  The good news is that we are not defenceless.  To restore climate stability it is essential that we also deploy CDR (carbon dioxide removal) to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.  Following up on my last video, I discuss key technologies to achieve this, like enhanced weathering, DAC (direct air capture), biochar, and ocean fertilization. Trying all these makes sense, although my money is on the latter being the most promising.

Carbon Dioxide Removal: Our ONLY option / Published on Feb 11, 2018

Emergency situations demand emergency responses. As abrupt climate change careens out of control, weather extremes are taking out cities (even nations) while politicians and governments talk tough but continue to do squat on reducing fossil fuel emissions.  We’ve left it too late with fossil fuel appeasement and ineffective half-measures.  We MUST now take emergency action to have any hope of avoiding utter chaos.  We MUST actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Abrupt Climate Change and Weather Mayhem; chat with Radio EcoShocks Alex Smith

fhfjhrfjofyjit jjjjj bhdjkhjkhjk

Alex Smith is my favourite person to chat with on radio. His weekly show Radio EcoShock is broadcast on about 100 radio stations around the globe, and we always have great conversations about the latest climate change zeitgeist.

This interview, ‘Weather Bomb‘ is no different.  Thanks Alex!!

[
dk:  It was posted on February 7, 2018, and not only has his usual patently professional, non-intrusive style, but this time, managed to share a comprehensive roundup of all of Paul’s recent work.  About an 59:59 long.  Thanks Alex twice!!
]

As he says:  ‘Following another record year of “natural” catastrophes, Canadian climate scientist and Youtube activist Paul Beckwith works over our tenuous situation with host Alex Smith. Radio Ecoshock 180207

Has the weather gone off the rails? Are we falling off a climate cliff already?  To find out what is going on, I’m calling up our regular scientist correspondent Paul Beckwith. He’s got a couple of Masters Degrees. He taught climate science at two Universities. Now Paul is educating the world with his many climate videos.’

Everything that You Wanted to Know about Jet Streams but Were Afraid to Ask

Everything that You Wanted to Know about Jet Streams but Were Afraid to Ask // Published on Feb 6, 2018

Why does the jet stream exist? How does if form? What controls it’s location and behaviour (latitude, length and amplitude of its waves)? What do zonal and meridional mean? Positive and negative vorticity?

Why are there many streaks of higher velocity within? Why is it becoming more fractured, and why are loops and whirls detaching from it? When we lose Arctic sea ice what will the jet stream become? Will it stabilize to another pattern or become totally chaotic? Will it even exist?

Intimately Understanding Our Jet Streams // Published on Feb 5, 2018

Understanding the intricacies of our jet streams is vital to understanding why weather extremes are increasing in frequency, severity and duration around the planet. Also, why it snowed recently in the Sahara Desert, and why it was above freezing in the dark, cold Arctic and on coastlines in Antarctica. Why Cape Town, South Africa is running out of water, and Paris floods, and why our biosphere is collapsing and why logic tells us that global food supply is likely to be limited in a near-term crisis. Our planet is a planet in crisis, yet folks just don’t get it.

Hot Humid Wedge Slices Through Dark Frigid Arctic

Hot Humid Wedge Slices Through Dark Frigid Arctic // Published on Feb 2, 2018

A large mass of warm humid air from the North Atlantic is driving a wedge (ridge of the jet-stream) into the 24-hour darkness of the Arctic nearby the North Pole, in the dead-of-winter.  Frigid Arctic temperatures are brought to above freezing, further stunting sea-ice growth.  The low pressure “eyes” of these cyclones reach 951 mb; the same as the recent “weather bomb” of the east coast of the US.  I show you the easy-to-use Earth Nullschool tool to track the jet-stream, polar vortex, temperatures, pressures, moisture and clouds.

Last Gasp Arctic Sea Ice Death Rattle

Last Gasp Arctic Sea Ice Death Rattle // Published on Jan 30, 2018

Elaborating on my last video; I take a cold, hard look at the reality of vanishing Arctic sea-ice. All signs point to an Arctic in collapse.  Cold air is flooding out of the Arctic, pushing the jet stream far south, putting North America in a highly variable deep freeze that will be seen in a few years as a “last gasp” Arctic “death rattle”.

Unfortunately, our climate is highly nonlinear, and we have already crossed thresholds. The Arctic is the Achilles Heel or lynchpin of the entire system, and it is undergoing convulsions.

Arctic Sea-Ice on Life-Support // Published on Jan 28, 2018

I give detailed diagnostics on Arctic sea-ice extent, area, thickness, dynamics, status, and fragility. The miserable prognosis is near certainty as we head to complete end-of-summer melt-out over the Arctic Ocean Basin.

As the ice goes, the global atmospheric circulation (jet streams, Hadley, Ferrel, Polar, Rossby) waves, and ocean circulation continues to reconfigure. Soon, Greenland will be the last Arctic bastion of ice and cold.

Upper and Lower Atmospheric Polar Vortices: It takes TWO to TANGO

Upper and Lower Atmospheric Polar Vortices: It takes TWO to TANGO // Published on Jan 25, 2018

As jet streams circle the Earth dictating weather patterns and becoming slower and wavier from climate change, they are more often thrust upwards by mountains and land/ocean temperature differences.  This causes Sudden Stratospheric Warming, and can split and/or displace the Stratospheric Polar Vortex. This in turn, feeds back to amplify/fracture/slow the Rossby Waves and increase the severity/frequency/duration and location of extreme weather events and overall climate mayhem.
