Climate Tipping Points: Atmospheric and Ocean Circulation // Nov 1st, 2018
Presently, global average temperature is rising 0.25C per decade. However nonlinear, tipping points can greatly increase this rate of warming. Atmospheric circulation (jetstreams) and ocean circulation (currents like the AMOC, or Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation) can switch state behaviour and quickly rocket us up to a much different, chaotic world. In this video, the first of two parts, I chat about the risks of these tipping points being triggered.
Global Circulation Tipping Points in the Atmosphere and Oceans // Oct 30, 2018
In this second video, I continue to chat about the risks of these tipping points being triggered.
A review of the IPCC report and updates on the status of global climate change, The Gary Null Show – 10.17.18. Replay at link, or Podbean download here. While the entire episode is 59:13 long, Paul’s segment starts at the 41:10 mark.
Key segment at 56:10: Paul talks about impact, four to ten years out of BOE, ‘blue ocean event’, shift of center of gravity of extreme cold to Greenland, global food shortages, and urgency of declaring then acting on our global climate emergency.
Dr. Null’s patently conceived show introductions–where he outlines what to expect–are impeccably clear. By all means, listen to the entire show, but those on short shift can zone in on the part framing Paul, by going to the 1:04 mark.
It was a great honor for Paul to be on Gary Null’s show again. For those of you in Canada perchance unfamiliar, or in Europe who might not know him at all, Dr. Null has for decades helped listeners with diet and nutrition, in all aspects of holistic or clean, correct living. His reputation is of the highest standard in the USA and has been heard probably by over 20M–or more–listeners, maybe 50M…
He is a sound voice of clear-eyed reason in all aspect of healing. This must necessarily now include our home, planet earth. To be clear: how can it be that a widely regarded show focused on nutrition again hosts a climate system scientist? Because ‘as it is above (outside), so it is below (inside, dk):
Paul ‘chats about the latest scientific developments on “faster than expected” climate change, and ineffectual human responses rather lack of responses’.

Here is a link for the Lo-Fi version of the show (Paul is the whole show)
‘Welcome to a stormy world. Canadian climate scientist Paul Beckwith and I cover the breaking science news behind the big storms and strange times. It’s not just you: the record weather on the outside, with a climate shift behind it all. From a hot Arctic to the hurricanes we investigate the big picture, while Billionaires tell us to “get used to it”‘.
As Alex goes on to say: ‘When we need the big picture on continuing extreme weather, I call Paul Beckwith. He’s got the cutting science behind the scenes. Next up on Radio Ecoshock we travel to the atmosphere with specialist scientists like John Lin from Utah and from the UK, Edward Hanna.
Famous American scientist Michael Mann is coming up – plus two interviews with lead scientists on that alarming news about way more heat in the ocean! Along the way, we discover why all the computing power behind Bit Coin can – all by itself – take us to the two degree C. danger zone. When scientists are on edge, they talk directly and fully to you on Radio Ecoshock‘.
