Editor: For the first time in the last four years, we lead off with a video BY others, not Paul’s. Having seen virtually all of Paul’s videos, some of them several times, it is clear that peripatetic, free, and informal as this interview is, that Sandy Schoelles nevertheless manages to really capture a bit of Paul’s soul.
Having had the privilege to know Sandy for several years now and seen her work evolve, she is one of the most honest, kindest, dedicated persons in our climate area you will ever meet. Never heard one bad word said about her by anyone, ever. She has faced pain and discomfort, yet manages to somehow keep going, very often with a smile or kind word and never a bad word about others. We happily showcase her work, dk.
Paul Beckwith: Asteroids to Cloud Seeding & Ice Melt // Jul 25, 2019
Welcome Paul Beckwith tonight! We have a lot to cover… and Paul talked about the asteroid, 2019. OK that was a near miss with earth that morning….just mere hours after Paul did 3 videos on asteroids! That is a topic we very rarely discuss….we also talk about the latest in Abrupt Climate Change, carbon capture, the moonshots and what is ahead for us and the other inhabitants of our beautiful planet . Join us for some good discussion and bring your questions!
How Much Longer Will Arctic Sea-Ice Last?? 1 of 2 // Jul 27, 2019
The most important question on the minds of many people paying attention to abrupt climate system change is: When will we have the first BOE: Blue Ocean Event?? It is just a matter of time before the entire Arctic Ocean becomes devoid of summer sea-ice, but we don’t know exactly when.
In this video and the next I show many plots and maps of
- Arctic sea ice extent, area,
- thickness, volume,
- regional variations, albedo, etc.
to come up with some picture (or guess) as to what will happen as this destruction of Arctic sea-ice unfolds. Ice loss momentum is enormous.

Arctic Sea-Ice is in a Death Spiral, and on it’s Last Legs: 2 of 2 // Jul 27, 2019

Global Aviation Impact on Climate System Change are HUGE // bbb
On June 29th, 2019 a record 202,157 planes flew; essentially double the quietest day (Christmas Day, 2018) in the past 12 months.
Peak number of simultaneous flights on June 29th was above 19,000.
Each year, there are 4 billion passengers, expected to double over the next two decades.
About 4 to 9% of the climate change impact of human activities is from aviation. Since 1990, carbon dioxide emissions from flying are up 83%; the climate impact is 2-4x that of the carbon dioxide alone. The “cheap fares” are NOT cheap in terms of their huge climate change impacts.
