Massive Deadly Heatwaves: A Consequence of Abrupt Climate Change // Jul 6, 2018
Many people around the planet have had to endure extensive, long duration heatwaves in early July; some people have not been successful. Most places are woefully unprepared for heatwaves, and it takes significant spikes upward in death rates before politicians actually start doing anything.
In Canada, the province of Quebec keeps better records for heatwave mortalities, and has reported many deaths; in other provinces like Ontario it will take many weeks for authorities to obtain and analyze data from morgues.
As he said: ‘I was able to connect with Paul Beckwith first on March 20th, 2016 and more recently on May 18, 2018. We discussed the current state of Climate Change and what it means for global economic prospects. Professor Beckwith is a noted expert on Abrupt Climate Change. He is a professor at the University of Ottawa’. As Paul says:
“I think the warming of the Arctic is destabilizing the climate system. The disruption of the temperature gradient between the Arctic and the temperate regions is what sets up weather patterns like the Jetstream.
“The Jetstream has basically broken down at this stage. The Whole arctic region is getting much darker due to sea ice loss, which leads to increased heat absorption, which then leads to accelerated glacial and ice melt.”
He continues, “One of the things that is very concerning is people are talking about making changes to behavior and policy for 20 years or a hundred years down the road, like with the Paris Accords. I don’t think we have that kind of time.”
I agree with him. Climate change is accelerating — CO2 concentration and temperatures are rising at an increasing rate. As Tom Keene of Bloomberg [dk, recommends: Tom Keene, Jon Ferro and Pimm Fox have the economy and the markets “under surveillance“] is famous for saying, “slope matters”.
Prof. Beckwith says, “People don’t have an understanding or appreciation of exponential growth means”.
