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.

    And nothing will be done. Glad you are educating and keeping the masses aware and informed of their demise, but worthless unless people grab their guns and rope and start marching.
    But you sheep will be informed all the way to death by these scientists, Ones who would never Act or tell you you have the right to kill those killing you, they feel they are accomplishing something great! The Paul’s and Dane wiggingtons, won’t act, won’t tell, won’t lead you anywhere but to your own informed death. In the past those in the know acted, now those in the know just inform. Lot of good that will do. Ha ha.
    Hey Paul, why not a graph on the decline, time left, previous action that helped and see you are not occomplishing anything but pats on your back.
    62 and I give a shit about the sheep in the world. And will not lift one more finger helping to overt climate destruction, in fact I will now, after realizing most people don’t deserve life , work to bring them closer to death. Burn your garbage in open air, burn oil and gas freely, cut some trees down, get bigger truck, tell people there is nothing real about climat change, dis-info these alarming scientists who are to cowardly to match. Yes I will help in the destruction of humanity, since humans are deserving to die. Bring it on faster, my big (stop Geoengineering sign )at the end of my driveway will be taken down, and replaced with a (don’t believe in global warming, it’s a hoax!!)
    Praise the of road snowmobiles, atv clubs for their hard work. Praise all the boat traffic on our lakes with their dirty motors exhausting their mufflers directly in the waters, praise to the grooming clubs which have carved 30 foot wide 500 miles of paths through
    our county forests, please develop our shorelines. Spray that weed killer, spray that bug killer in a can. Do all you can do to bring about the destruction of humans. Vaccines don’t have aborted fetuses, poisons, heavy metals, mutated flu viruses in them, heck no, they will protect you! Go get one, it’s your duty! Praise the baby killing soldier who joined to be a hero, the are protecting us!! Leave them alone, they are part of a great machine of death, I’ll help them all I can. Each one of you can contribute greatly in the demise of human race. Start a club of deniers, harass climate whistle blowhards. Post comments to spark denial.
    Let’s work to bring about real change! The real fix!
    Your enemy now !
