Going. Going. GONE; but WHEN?

Arctic Sea-Ice: Going. Going. GONE; but WHEN? // Apr 2, 2020

The essential go-to website for near real-time plots on the Arctic sea-ice can be easily found by Googling “Arctic sea ice graphs”. Personally, I really appreciate the effort and expertise of Zach Labe who generates numerous graphs and animations that clearly show the rapidly decreasing trends in Arctic sea ice extent, thickness, and volume.

  • In this video and the next, I examine this data which gives us a clear picture of the present state of the Arctic and from the trends allows each of us to draw our own conclusions about the near term trends.
  • It is just a matter of time before the ice vanishes, but how much time are we talking?

Coronavirus: What can you do and how can it end? From Alex Smith’s Radio Ecoshock, an interview from April 1, 2020.

I called our regular scientist correspondent Paul Beckwith to discuss his three part-video on whether we can expect extreme heat events as the industrial shut-down lowers air pollution. I think that could happen.

‘It is important. But first – Paul blew me away by predicting Canada is not an oasis from the Corona pandemic developing just south of the border. He says Canadians made “colossal blunders” that could cost us dearly in weeks to come‘.
