Changing Climate Chats

Water Weirding: Too Much or None at all // Published on Jun 21, 2017

Water is vital for life. Water cycling from solid to liquid to vapour (gas) on Earth is changing with abrupt climate disruption. Phenomena like atmospheric rivers and water fingers are bringing more water and heat to higher latitudes. Gear-like patterns in the jet stream can firehose water from the ocean to land, creating intense long-duration rains and thus floods.

I chat about these things and much more; grab an ice water and let me tell you this water story.

Arctic Methane & Jet Stream Disruption // Published on Jun 19, 2017

Many people use natural gas to heat their homes, without realizing that it is primarily composed of methane — CH4.  Methane levels in the Arctic are much higher than elsewhere on our planet, and are rapidly rising. I discuss where it comes from (sources); how it is removed from the atmosphere (sinks), and how it varies with latitude. As the Arctic continues to warm, the levels are rapidly rising, with greatly increased risks.

A video with scintillating Sandra Schoelles (dk):  ‘Interview with Paul Beckwith-Climate Systems Scientist, from Environmental Coffee House, shared through Facebook. Paul has been working on calculations regarding the Arctic Sea Ice, and the weather patterns in regards to Abrupt Climate Change. Please join us with questions on this most important topic.’
