Can Hurricanes Trigger Earthquakes?

Can Hurricanes Trigger Earthquakes? Part A // Published on Sep 22, 2017

On Sept. 8th, 2017 as Hurricane Irma chewed up the Caribbean a magnitude 8.1 earthquake rattled Mexico. On Sept. 19th it was Hurricane Maria’s turn, with a 7.1 quake AND a volcano near Mexico City.

In 2012 as Hurricane Sandy moved north off the east coast of the US a network of -400 seismic sensors lit up and there was a 7.8 quake off the west coast.  Sandy turned left, sensors lit up again, and there was a 6.3 quake near the 1st one.  As Sandy went ashore in NY sensors lit up again, and there was a 3rd quake of 6.2; connected or coincidental?

Writing of Paul’s posted by Sam Carana at the famed Arctic News Blog in August of 2013:

Climate Change is happening today, big time!
The Social Tipping Point, By Sam Carana of Arctic News Blog:

Abrupt climate change. It is happening today, big time. The northern hemisphere atmospheric circulation system is doing its own thing, without the guidance of a stable jet stream. The jet stream is fractured into meandering and stuck streaked segments, which are hoovering up water vapor and directing it day after day to unlucky localized regions, depositing months or seasons worth of rain in only a few days, turning these locales into water worlds and trashing all infrastructure like houses, roads, train tracks and pipelines.

Creating massive sinkholes and catastrophic landslides. And climate change is only getting warmed up.  In the Arctic methane is coming out of the thawing permafrost. Both on land and under the ocean on the sea floor. The Yedoma permafrost in Siberia is now belching out methane at greatly accelerated rates due to intense warming.

The collapsing sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is exposing the open ocean to greatly increased solar absorption and turbulent mixing from wave action due to persistent cyclonic activity. Massive cyclonic activity will trash large portions of the sea ice if positioned to export broken ice via the Fram Strait’.  Professor Paul Beckwith

More Climate Change Collateral Damage: Hurricane Maria Takes Out Dominica

More Climate Change Collateral Damage: Hurricane Maria Takes Out Dominica // Published on Sep 18, 2017

Hello People of the World. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you have been lied to for years about the grave risks that we face.

Billions have been pissed away on Homeland Security and military equipment in the “Fight against Terror”, while abrupt climate change is ignored; even worse accelerated with global government fossil fuel subsidies of $5 TRILLION dollars every year.

Meanwhile, Terrorist Maria has just struck the island nation of Dominica, completely devastating it.  Yet another nation (city, or region) lucking out in the climate casino. Collateral damage on our path to a world of hurt.

Six Storms Bracket North America: 3 hurricanes, a tropical storm, depression & a disturbance // Published on Sep 17, 2017

At this moment we have three hurricanes (Jose, Maria, and Otis), a tropical storm (Norma), a tropical depression (Lee) and a tropical disturbance (yet unnamed) surrounding North America.

I discuss the latest projections, and teach you the tools to track these storms yourself. Hurricane Jose is expected to curve northward off the US coast, while Hurricane Maria is likely to rapidly strengthen and bring pain to many Caribbean Islands hurt severely by Hurricane Irma.

Crisis in Capitalism and Cascading Climate Chaos

Crisis in Capitalism & Cascading Climate Chaos // Published on Sep 15, 2017

I discuss how ongoing and cascading climate chaos is the root cause of our crisis in capitalism.  The US is considered one of the richest and most powerful countries in the world, yet is being brought to its knees from repeated hits due to Superstorms made worse by climate change chaos.

It is not just climate change that threatens people.  As technology rapidly advances, and more and more jobs are lost due to artificial intelligence and robotics, capitalism will be at risk of complete collapse. How do we address these growing risks and come out standing at the other side?

Always a favorite of Paul’s, back again for the upteenth time on Radio Ecoshock:  Mind-bending Climate Strikes, Posted on September 13, 2017.  As master host Alex Smith says:

‘Inhuman heat predicted by new science from Europe. Lead author Simone Russo explains 55 degree C (131 F) heat’ worldwide.  ‘From Ottawa, climate scientist Paul Beckwith walks us through the forces behind record storms, fires, and floods.  Record-breaking Harvey, followed by the largest hurricane ever seen in the Atlantic …  West engulfed in fire, millions flooded out in Asia – who can keep up in a destabilized climate?  We’re going to try this week on Radio Ecoshock. We start with … science from Italy about the incredible heat to come. Then our regular guest scientist Paul Beckwith paints the big picture missing in the media….’

Tornadoes Galore in Florida, spinning off Superstorm Irma

Tornadoes Galore in Florida, spinning off Superstorm Irma // Published on Sep 9, 2017

I highly recommend you download the RadarScope app on your smartphone to track Hurricane Irma, and do your own real-time weather forecasting.

I explain in detail how Hurricane rain bands are formed, how the wind speed varies in the storm, and where there is a high probability of getting tornadoes generated. Irma has been spinning off many tornadoes, and the eye is still well offshore.

How You Can Track Superstorm Irma from Minute-to-Minute

Track Superstorm Irma in Real-Time: Tutorial // Published on Sep 7, 2017

I teach you how to track Superstorm Irma (or any other storm) in real-time. Following Twitter Hashtags is the easiest way to get the very latest.  I talk about factors increasing Irma’s strength, and those that could decrease it on the path to Florida.  Also, how to access US & Euro track models, with the Euro being best.

The models are converging on the tip of Florida.  I discuss storm surges, wave height, eye pressure and maximum wind locations.

Me

The European Model Forecasts (ECMWF) track actual Irma path (red x’es) very well.  The US Model Forecasts (GFS) is consistently too-far northward. Always check out both models.

f

Winds are highest in right-front quadrant of storms.  For example, if Irma hit tip of Florida, with rotation winds 180 mph and forward speed 20 mph, the right side maximum is 180 + 20 = 200 mph; left side maximum is 180 – 20 = 160 mph.

Hurricane Cross-Section, with cloud bands (convection regions with rain) and downdrafts in between bands.  Air pressure and surface wind speeds shown as well.

Will Irma be a Superstorm Like Harvey? Two Video Tutorial

       

Me, after I saw the latest forecast for Hurricane Irma

Will Irma be a Superstorm Like Harvey? Tutorial 1 of 2 // Published on Sep 4, 2017

The US and European Weather Models are both forecasting a strike on the US from Hurricane Irma. I teach you how to find important factors like ocean surface temperatures along the storm path, jet streams that can direct, block, slow, or speed up the hurricane, and thus let us find out how long the storm may stick around.

I also show you where to find real-time instantaneous expert views on the progression of Irma. Will Irma be more like Katrina, Sandy or Superstorm Harvey?  How has climate change monkeyed with our Jet Streams???

Will Irma be a Superstorm Like Harvey? Tutorial 2 of 2 // Published on Sep 4, 2017

All eyes are on Hurricane Irma. Yet the x is a tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico which is where Harvey originated.

Behind Irma (hidden by my head) is a tropical disturbance formed off Africa near where Irma formed. If either disturbance grows bigger it will be named Jose, next would be Katia (see below).

Sequentially named storms

Hurricane Irma (by my glasses) and Jet Stream pattern. 

If the jet streams continue to sweep over Florida when Irma arrives she will not linger like Harvey but will move through like most hurricanes. If the jet streams move north, then watch out, even more.

Best place for instant expert updates on Irma is to go on Twitter (join if you aren’t on) and search for #Irma, selecting Top posts and also Last posts (also follow me @PaulHBeckwith and say hi:)

My cannonball attempt to create a storm surge or tsunami. Educating you on abrupt climate change is stressful and needs decent coping skills.

Science of Superstorms. After Harvey, What’s Next?

Science of Superstorms. After Harvey, What’s Next? // Published on Sep 1, 2017

Why was Harvey a Superstorm: expected $ losses greater than Katrina & Sandy combined?I teach you about how the science of abrupt climate change is turbocharging storms.

Global warming has greatly increased ocean surface and deeper water temperatures, warmer air holds much more water vapour and latent heat, and storms are staying in place much longer due to broken jet streams.  Blame the Arctic.
