Arctic Sea-Ice Refrigerator’s Death Rattle // Published on Jun 12, 2017
Arctic Ocean sea-ice cover is quickly vanishing. Each summer, there is less-and-less ice surviving the previous year, and what remains is slushy, & honeycombed with salt-water pockets. Ice loss is faster than exponential, namely super-exponential. Blink & the ice will all be gone, very likely by 2020 or earlier.
Then what? Zero ice all summer within a few more years. A few more years then no ice year-round. How will we withstand weather wilding, weirding & whiplashing? Rain storms lasting for months? Climate Casino Chaos?
Vital Info: Paris 2 Degree Rise Relates to 1750 // Published on Jun 10, 2017
In 2015 and 2016 atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide spiked upward by record amounts. How was this possible, given claims that global human emissions flattened out?
Does it really mean that forests and oceans are absorbing less carbon?
The Paris Accord “safe temperature level of 2 degrees C (hope 1.5)” is relative to a start year of 1750 (pre-industrial). Please remember this; it is VERY important!!
