My 500th Video & Searchable Index: Joining Dots on Abrupt Climate System Change: Last Chance to Donate in 2018:) // Dec 31, 2018
Recently released by NOAA, the Arctic Report Card 2018 details profound changes underway in the Arctic from rapid temperature increases.
“What happens in the Arctic does not stay in the Arctic.” Quote: Beckwith, 2009
Abrupt Climate Change; “you ain’t seen nothing yet”. As Arctic sea-ice hurtles to oblivion, Greenland becomes exposed as the last bastion of coldness in the vast Arctic region. Shortly thereafter, around the world, “the coast is toast”, or rather submerged. Jet streams Kaput…
Arctic Darkening from Spring Snow Cover Loss Exceeds Sea-Ice Loss Effect: Part 4 // Dec 30, 2018
Many people know that accelerating sea-ice loss (12-13% per decade in September’s) is darkening the region leading to Temperature Amplification. However, darkening from loss of terrestrial snow cover in Spring (23% per decade in June) is an even larger effect, and is rapidly accelerating.
Over several months, we have been laying the ground work, with a view to not only our ‘500th Jubilee Video‘, but having already begun–draft–the large and arduous effort of redoing our useful and valuable but nevertheless ponderous tags, but have also begun to elaborate a database comprised of all of the videos. This is step one of about twenty.
We have maximally provided links, descriptions, and major categories. This is part of an ongoing evaluation, learning, and exploration process. A careful collaborative decision was made to take some part of the donations and allocate resources to this concentrated work by both Paul and David–time, effort, and expertise by Paul and material work in preparing and supporting the framework by David. Viewable sheet in navigable window, here:
This is a read only version, in Google Sheets, which is nevertheless searchable. Link to actual sheet, Paul 5 dBase Dec, End of 2018 here. Does NOT need a google account to access.
Like in Excel, Word, and Google Sheets, just enter ‘CntL-H‘ to get a query or dialogue box, then simply type a word phrase, to search for information. Of course, hard as we tried to move the ball up near the goal line for the New Year, we are not finished and certainly will be sharing more polished versions. It’s still a good start and fitting after so many video’s, posts here, tweets, and events–dk.
Please consider donating to support my work. I put a lot of time and effort into researching, studying and producing my videos so that you can learn how quickly our world is changing. Donating does not need a PayPal account, but simply a credit card. Please click here.
