What’s Not To Like? Extinction Radio, Vanishing Sea Ice, EcoShock

Here is Paul’s recent ‘Interview with Paul Beckwith‘ on Extinction Radio.  This is in Part Two, starts at 5:20, and is about 1:14 long.  Mike is an incredible interviewer, who has ardently sustained his keen vision in continuing to produce and furnish the show.  This is from June 14th.  Paul discussed the quickly imminent ‘Blue Ocean Event’ and its certain stressors on habitat, society, economics.

Vanishing Arctic Sea-Ice: Expect the Unexpected… / Published on Jun 14, 2017

By 2020 or earlier (maybe this year) humanity will experience our first Blue-Ocean event. Next to NO sea-ice cover on the vast Arctic Ocean in September. Within a few years NO ice in Aug/Sept/Oct; extended to July & Nov within a few more years. NO ice year round within a decade.

As fast as sea-ice decline is (12%/decade), snow cover in spring is about twice as fast.

When Do You Call It A Climate Emergency?
PAUL BECKWITH ON PLANETARY CLIMATE STRESS POINTS, Posted on June 15, 2017, by Radio Ecoshock.  Alex is and always has been, same as Mike above, a favorite interviewer.

Terrorism, elections and Trump – does anyone remember the real narrative of this century? You know, the minor detail that a shift in climate will disrupt everything and everyone?

‘Let’s talk about some of the disturbing signs from around the world that suggest the big change is already underway. We are joined by our regular Radio Ecoshock guest Paul H. Beckwith. Paul teaches climate science at the University of Ottawa and lectures at Carleton University as well.

‘Incredible heat records, Biblical downpours not reported. Canadian climate scientist Paul Beckwith & Alex get it on the record.

‘With his hundreds of climate tutorials on You tube and many media interviews, Paul is definitely an out-there scientist. He tells us why he just went storm-chasing in the United States, in Tornado Alley. I’ve noticed a LOT of storm news every night on the major networks. It’s just a regular feature now on tornadoes, floods, big hail – the works. It this the new normal?

Bangladesh has just come through another major Typhoon. It’s not that unusual, but they do keep coming. But the U.S. East Coast has almost forgotten big hurricanes in the last couple of years. Is the science settled on whether we will see more storms, or more violent storms, as the world climate heats up? Paul gives us an update on that.’

Taylor and Gibbs: A big step forward for Canada’s federal scientists, article continues in full at link.  That’s Paul on the left in the photo:

‘Since the election of Donald Trump, Canada has been distancing itself from U.S. policies on everything from immigration to human rights to science.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland gave a hard-hitting speech last Tuesday asserting that Canada will step up to lead on the world’s stage, and a part of that leadership needs to be progress on science.’

  1. Thanks Paul for all you work. I almost watch your videos or listen to you being interviewed, nut I also read/watch lots of climate stuff so I can write my articles properly.

    It’s not an over simplification to say that Earth is either to see an extinction event that will allow life to snap back from or not.
    This extinction event is unique for Earth in that never before has a specie assumed Corporate Life as if a God Given Entitlement to speak of Earth in third person. To divvy Earth to bits bot gold.
    So in spirit of good business practice at scientific endeavor the variables to be considered zero in on test we can do as one but not scattered to the winds of simple over complication due to entropy rise.
