Debunking Grand Solar Minimum in Abrupt Climate Change, Itsy-Bitsy, Two New Videos

Debunking Grand Solar Minimum in Abrupt Climate Change: 1 of 2 // Published on Mar 14, 2018

The idea of a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) causing weather extremes, specifically cooling on parts of our planet today is deeply flawed (just wrong) and has no basis in reality.  I clearly explain here how variability in sunspots cause tiny changes in solar output (0.5/1361 or 1 part in 2722), and changes in climate impact of about 0.05 in 2.7 which is eeny-weeny-teeny compared to greenhouse gas impacts.  Also, solar cycles, reflected in sunspot counts, are on an 11 year timescale, which clearly cannot explain the abrupt climate change occurring.

Solar CHANGES Effect on Climate is Itsy-Bitsy-Teeny-Weeny: 2 of 2 // Published on Mar 15, 2018

Many people are very worried, even scared, about abrupt climate change causing extreme weather events like torrential rains with floods, droughts, high winds, etc. increasing in severity, duration, frequency and impact.

Many unscientific theories as to the cause are being invoked (even promoted) either innocently through lack of science knowledge, or fraudulently for nefarious reasons.  The idea that sun changes (Grand Solar Minimum or GSM) are the root cause is utter nonsense.

Stormy Weather, Past, Present and Future: 4 of 4

Stormy Weather; Past, Present and Future: 4 of 4 // Published on Mar 12, 2018

In this video, and the last three I have gone into great detail on how wave energy from recent storms has the ability to chew up coastlines, including moving huge boulders weighing as much as 620 metric tons.

Cities on coastlines around the world will not just suffer from the inexorable rise of global sea level, but will be pummelled by massive waves from huge intense storms on top of king tides on top of storm surge on top of land subsidence on top of rising sea levels from abrupt climate change.

Storm Generated Ocean Waves Pack More Punch Than Expected: Videos 2 and 3 of Four

Storm Generated Ocean Waves Pack More Punch Than Expected: 2 of 4 // Published on Mar 9, 2018

We know that massive storm waves wreak havoc on coastal cities and coastlines, but scientists thought that massive 620 ton boulders could only be moved by huge tsunamis from earthquakes.  Not so.

Atlantic storms in winter 2013-2014 moved this gigantic rock, and many other huge rocks weighing well over 100 tons. Wave theory needs to be redone, since the energy in storm waves is much greater than expected. This is horrible news for coastal cities around the globe.

Storm Wave Energy is Way Worse Than We Thought: 3 of 4 // Published on Mar 10, 2018

How does a scientist find out how much energy is in a storm that hits a coastline?  This info is needed to figure out if coastal cities can survive the onslaught of waves atop sea level rise atop storm surge atop king-tides atop land subsidence.  In Ireland and Sicily, GPS located photos, and on-the-ground rock measurements were used.  In France a camera hung from a kite got detailed rock locations; subtracting images showed changes over time. Bottom Line: Waves pack a much greater punch than we thought. Coastline erosion is much worse than expected.

I am quoted in the following:  Predicted spike in Ottawa temperatures worries experts, councillor:  Susan Burgess · CBC News, March 9, 2018.

Ottawa is among 13 cities worldwide [1.] that are projected to see temperature hikes that could exceed 2 C in the next decade or so, according to the report from the Urban Climate Change Research Network at Columbia University‘:

Numbers no surprise to experts, advocates:  The temperature prediction for Ottawa in the 2020s didn’t come as a surprise to climatologist Paul Beckwith of the University of Ottawa.

He said, in the High Arctic, warming is happening much faster than anywhere else on the planet and the loss of sea ice contributes to the warming trend to the south. Northern cities will warm much faster than other cities, he predicted.

Ottawa will warm even faster than Toronto, for example,” he said, adding that inland cities will see temperatures rise more quickly than those on the coast or near large bodies of water.

Already, Ottawa is seeing the effects of climate change with this unusually warm February, he said, and people living in the city should prepare for future winters filled with the freeze-thaw cycles that wreck the roads and make sidewalks slippery and dangerous for pedestrians. It’s bad news for the natural environment as well.

We (humans) live indoors in controlled environments,” Beckwith said. “What about animals and trees? They’re used to certain rainfall patterns, certain temperatures.”‘

I’m on a Panel Discussion at The Canada summer conference, Le Summet Du Canada.

Panel Questions:  A lot of the reconciliation work done by ECCC (Environment Canada and Climate Change) and INAC (Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada) come from direct communication between department employers and indigenous communities.

  • Is there sufficient awareness within departments on challenges facing indigenous people?
  • Are there concrete initiatives in place? Are there any concrete initiatives foreseen to be introduced into the departments to offer sensibility training to employees?
  • How will climate change impact the traditional habits of indigenous peoples; fishing, hunting, etc… and what policies could be put in place by the government (with reconciliation efforts in mind) to ensure the preservation of their way of life?
  • Comment est-ce que la connaissance traditionnelle des autochtones est intégré dans les politiques portant sur le changement climatique et l’arctique en particulier?

On February 14th, the Prime Minister recommitted to reconciliation efforts through the recognition and Implementation of Rights Framework.

  • What does that entail for the current and future policies set forward by Environment Canada?
  • How do policies to adapt to climate change come hand in hand with reconciliation with indigenous peoples?

There can sometimes be conflict between Indigenous groups and established companies over resource use. For example, new rules giving a large percentage of Newfoundland fisheries to Indigenous groups has sparked outrage among fishermen.

  • Does giving authority over resource use to Indigenous groups help or hurt environmental impact?

Recent Storms Moved Giant Rocks Weighing Up to 620 tons: Part 1 of 4

Recent Storms Moved Giant Rocks Weighing Up to 620 tons: Part 1 of 4 // Published on Mar 7, 2018

It turns out that “Storms of our Grandchildren” are already here today.  In fact these storms are already reconfiguring our coastlines. If you live in a coastal city you are likely aware that rising sea levels, large and intense storms with their associated storm surges, combined with king tides and perhaps even land subsidence are encroaching and damaging houses, streets, bridges, high-rises; in fact all infrastructure is threatened.

The energy in recent storms is enormous, and has moved enormous boulders weighing as much as 620 tons in Ireland.


———-

The tonne (/tʌn/ ( listen)) (non-preferred SI derived unit; SI symbol: t), commonly referred to as the metric ton in the United States, is a non-SI metric unit of mass equal to 1,000 kilograms; or one megagram (Mg); it is equivalent to approximately 2,204.6 pounds, 1.102 short tons (US) or 0.984 long tons (imperial).

Thus 620 t = 683 US tons.

New Scientific Discovery: Siberian Atmospheric Rivers: Part 4 of 4

New Scientific Discovery: Siberian Atmospheric Rivers: Part 4 of 4 // Published on Mar 1, 2018

A Russian icebreaker in the Arctic sailed from open ocean water into thin sea-ice continuing into thicker sea-ice and sent weather balloons aloft every 6 hours to record air temperatures, pressure, humidity and winds.  It also dropped sensors deep into the ocean to measure salinity, pH, temperature, and collect water samples.  I describe this work, and chat about the new findings that warm humid Atmospheric Rivers ride upwards on the surface of a dome of cold dry dense air sitting atop the sea-ice, warming the air and disrupting Polar Vortices.

Topsy Turvy Weather on a Planet in Peril: Part 3 of 4 // Published on Feb 28, 2018

Bitter coldness and heavy snowfalls paralyzing many cities in EuropeCrazy warmth in the Arctic, many eastern cities in North America, parts of Africa, Asia, and Australia. Torrential rains with Biblical floods and landslides.  Snow in dry deserts, and droughts in rainforests. What is going on?  In plain, everyday language, I try to explain what is behind these seemingly unrelated events, joining the dots on our overall atmosphere and ocean system changes that are well underway, and speeding up.

Warm Humid Air Penetrates Arctic Cold Dome: 2 of 4

Warm Humid Air Penetrates Arctic Cold Dome: 2 of 4 // Published on Feb 26, 2018

Above the Arctic sea-ice sits a dome of cold, dry, heavy air.  Arctic temperature amplification results in very wavy, pronounced crests and troughs in the jet stream, so warm moist air moves rapidly northward in atmospheric river fingers that often slice through the dome causing above freezing temperatures at the ice surface, and also deflect upwards at the dome surface.

 

With fast enough wind speeds they can penetrate up high into the atmosphere and slice the polar vortex into multiple loops, and feed back to further break the jet streams.

Hot Wet Atmospheric Rivers Ravage Arctic: Part 1 of 4

Hot Wet Atmospheric Rivers Ravage Arctic: Part 1 of 4 // Published on Feb 23, 2018

Ongoing abrupt climate change is causing global weather mayhem, causing huge temperature swings from icebox chills to heat records, and torrential rains with record floods. Arctic temperatures have skyrocketed…

The high altitude Polar Vortex split, and a deep persistent jet stream trough over North America has shifted, worsening weather Wilding/Weirding/Whiplashing. Concentrated fingers of hot humid air are slicing into the Arctic.
