Live Interviews on Mainstream Canadian National TV Programs: CTV and CBC News

Beckwith’s Live Interviews on Mainstream Canadian National TV Programs: CTV and CBC News: 1 of 3 // Feb 2, 2020

When you start to wonder why I’ve had a video hiatus for a week or so, please rest assured that

  • I am on a massive learning quest (or succumbing to my chess addiction),
  • Reading huge numbers of books on all different topics: i.e. philosophy, to build better coping skills to deal with our existential crisis;
  • But most books are technical in various fields of endeavor.


I fortuitously bought “Pandemic 1918: Eyewitness Accounts from the Greatest Medical Holocaust in Modern History” by Catharine Arnold a few months ago (a premonition??). Given the new coronavirus emergency it was very prudent to read it immediately.

Beckwith’s Live Mainstream National Media (CTV TV and CBC TV) Interviews: Aussie Wildfires: 2 of 3 // Feb 2, 2020

Back in September, 2019 (oh so long ago, in abrupt climate system change time) I did a video on the record setting Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) over Antarctica and explained how it would deflect the jet streams (and this rain bearing storms) away from Australia in their summer (Canada’s northern hemisphere winter).

The rest is history, as they say.

  • Australia has been hit by extreme heat and dryness, and thus ongoing apocalyptic wildfires.
  • As the SSW subsided, heavy rain and golf-ball” sized hailstorms hit,
  • Then back to drought and massive dust storms.


Beckwith’s Interviews Live On-Air with Canada’s National TV Broadcasters: Aussie Wildfires: 3 of 3 // Feb 2, 2020

Over the last month I have had six or seven on-air TV interviews with Canada’s largest private broadcaster (CTV News) and another with Canada’s largest public broadcasters (CBC News). In this final video of my three part video series I continue to play the recorded TV news clips, and discuss:


  • The keystone role that abrupt climate system change has in driving Australia’s catastrophic wildfires.
  • I also discuss the jaw-dropping ineptitude of governments to respond to our ongoing climate casino reality.

    What do you think of this recent paper:
    Shipborne eddy covariance observations of methane fluxes constrain Arctic sea emissions

    It claims that CH4 emissions from the Arctic ocean are not so high. It is based on data from 2014.
