ROFLMAO at this thread. Cathartic.

Fuck Trump. Fuck Pelosi and her 8 figure real estate mini empire as well.

Fuck the corporate media of CNN, MSNBC, Fox, WAPO, NYT, etc. who give us the pathetic shallow left vs. right Kabuki Theater while they all work together to throw the American middle class under the bus.

THE best thing about using all the fucking expletives you can - though should occur naturally, or you're a fucking fake fucking wannabe piece of shit shit-tossing fucktard! - is that it sorts out the pretentious pricks and twats who motherfuckingly consider themselves son-of-a-bitching intellectuals all while mind-fucking themselves harder and faster than the Man from Nantucket who, had he an ear-pussy, would have fucked it. Those fuckwits and shit-eaters fuck themselves, anyway.

Arctic Shifts To a Carbon Source Due to Winter Soil Emissions
https://eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2019-11/nsfc-ast110819.php

A NASA-funded study suggests winter carbon emissions in the Arctic may be adding more carbon into the atmosphere each year than is taken up by Arctic vegetation, marking a stark reversal for a region that has captured and stored carbon for tens of thousands of years.

AAAAAARGH. Carbon emitted from thawing permafrost has not been included in the majority of models used to predict future climates.

"These findings indicate that winter carbon dioxide loss may already be offsetting growing season carbon uptake, and these losses will increase as the climate continues to warm," said Woods Hole Research Center Arctic Program Director Sue Natali, lead author of the study. "Studies focused on individual sites have seen this transition, but until now we haven't had a clear accounting of the winter carbon balance throughout the entire Arctic region."

Researchers estimate a yearly loss of 1.7 billion metric tons of carbon from the permafrost region during the winter season from 2003 to 2017 compared to the estimated average of 1 billion metric tons of carbon taken up during the growing season. ... "The warmer it gets, the more carbon will be released into the atmosphere from the permafrost region, which will add to further warming," ... . AAARGH

For the full quote not maimed by Aaargs hit the link.

Once i lived in a world where we had some time to stop emitting before we lost the Amazon and many other forests. Just the idea of the arctic being a source instead of a sink was stuff for the latter part of this century. Same goes for all the crumbling in the Antarctic which is really neatly documented with gifs and discussions in the subforum.

I was already wondering if we would see sinks fail before the arctic ice technically did and how to phrase that question and in which subforum it should be posted but we can skip that now.

Press F to pay respect.

The world we knew has died because all the overshoot we add now just makes it worse.

A pause in Southern Hemisphere circulation trends due to the Montreal Protocol

Observations show robust near-surface trends in Southern Hemisphere tropospheric circulation towards the end of the twentieth century, including a poleward shift in the mid-latitude jet1,2, a positive trend in the Southern Annular Mode1,3–6 and an expansion of the Hadley cell7,8. It has been established that these trends were driven by ozone depletion in the Antarctic stratosphere due to emissions of ozone-depleting substances9–11. Here we show that these widely reported circulation trends paused, or slightly reversed, around the year 2000. Using a pattern-based detection and attribution analysis of atmospheric zonal wind, we show that the pause in circulation trends is forced by human activities, and has not occurred owing only to internal or natural variability of the climate system. Furthermore, we demonstrate that stratospheric ozone recovery, resulting from the Montreal Protocol, is the keydriver of the pause. Because pre-2000 circulation trends have affected precipitation12–14, and potentially ocean circulation and salinity15–17, we anticipate that a pause in these trends will have wider impacts on the Earth system. Signatures of the effects of the Montreal Protocol and the associated stratospheric ozone recovery might therefore manifest, or have already manifested, in other aspects of the Earth system

Link in the SA article above.

So rest of human crap overrides Montreal recoveries in the noughties. Permafrost flips ca 2015.

I don´t feel to fucking confident.

I deleted the SA article so if you have to go to the original quote to get it.

We owe much of our factored in improvements on GW to the Montreal protocol (see Dutch policy and solutions thread in P and S forum for details).

And we are over riding that with our collective actions.

We really need to do so much more.

So many people get that there is a slim chance to die and then they debate masks and blah blah but what we are doing to the next generations is so much worse. There is no immunity from global warming. At some point even hard core republicans won´t like sea front property any more. What will that do to the economy? Etc.

For many it seems abstract (tesla groupies, techno optimists) while our planet is in such a bad shape and the indicators for the near future are not hopeful.

We need to fight the climate war so much more then this but it seems that for many it is too abstract.

You wouldn't put those words in a science paper.

Unless you are a linguist.  ;) ;D

For example, "Prosodic structure and expletive infixation"

Quote
An analysis of English Expletive Infixation (as in fan-fuckin-tastic) in terms of a metrical theory of prosody is presented. It is shown that the major environment for
Expletive Infixation-immediately before a stressed syllable-follows from independently motivated characteristics of this theory. Further support for this metrical theory is adduced from infixation in words with dactylic stress alternation and with internal stress-neutral junctures, and from the subordination of stress in forms after infixation.

Here is a nice video on expletive infixation BTW.



Let me also name associate professor Martine De Cock (University of Washington Tacoma), Dr. Gopal Chandra Shit (Jadavpur University), or Professor Reinhardt Fuck (Universidade de Brasilia) who all published scientific papers.

Just kidding, Nanning. I agree with VM, we still like you! :)

Empirical Analysis Tells Reviewer 2: “Go F’ Yourself”
https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/06/empirical-analysis-tells-reviewer-2-go-f-yourself/

Peer review is often the key hurdle between obtaining some data and getting it published in the scientific literature. As such, it's often essential to keeping questionable results out of the scientific literature. But for vast numbers of scientists with solid-but-unexciting results, it can be a hurdle that raises frustrations to thermonuclear levels. So it's no surprise that many scientists privately wish that certain reviewers would end up engaged in activities that are anatomically impossible.

In academia, it is fair to say that Reviewer 2 is the ultimate boogeyman. He is Pennywise the Clown, combined with el chupacabra, wrapped in the Blair Witch.


Scientific Peer Review

David A. M. Peterson, Dear Reviewer 2: Go F’ Yourself, Social Science Quarterly, 2020
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/ssqu.12824

The objective of this study was to empirically test the wide belief that Reviewer #2 is a uniquely poor reviewer.
....

Results
There is no evidence that Reviewer #2 is either more negative about the manuscript or out of line with the other reviewers. There is, however, evidence that Reviewer #3 is more likely to be more than one category below the other reviewers.

Conclusions
Reviewer #2 is not the problem. Reviewer #3 is. In fact, he is such a bad actor that he even gets the unwitting Reviewer #2 blamed for his bad behavior.

Interpretation of the artwork posted in the Covid thread. I can only post this here. You'll see:

The picture shows, in a setting that resembles a scene from the (awesome) TV series Chernobyl, a stinking, toxic, box that ought to be handled by our protagonist in PPE. The box is labeled '2020'.

We are the protagonist. This fucking box there, it will explode in our cute looking faces. And those guys watching it happen behind the glass, there is no escape for them either. All this radioactivity which is this shithole of a damn fucking year called 2020 will get them eventually.

That's all. Everybody enjoy the rest of your day.

Thanks, that makes it clearer. It did look nuclear like but i have never seen the TV series.

I kind of feel like that about 2020. I wondered if i should plug for a disastrous outcome on the Arctic on one of the prediction threads just because 2020 had such talent for being a shit year.

My top three climate change F-bombs:

#3  Jason Box's infamous 2014 tweet concerning the eventuality of a fraction of Arctic subsea carbon being released into the atmosphere. 

#2  Last May, on John Oliver, Bill Nye The Science Guy donned his safety glasses, grabbed his blowtorch and used some rather frank language.

and

#1  In another particularly tart tweet, CNN Anchor Bill Weir cuts the "willfully ignorant ****sticks" @FoxNation a new sphincter, pointing out that weather is not climate.

Now, if only James Hansen would lighten up a little....  Maybe take a laxative?  A well-placed F-bomb or two would add candor and gravitas to his work.  A sense of urgency....  It could happen.

Swearing Parrots Separated After Telling Folk Where to Go
https://www.theguardian.com/global/2020/sep/29/fowl-epithets-swearing-parrots-separated-after-telling-folk-where-to-go
https://www.insider.com/foul-fowl-language-2020-9

Five foul-mouthed parrots have been separated after learning to swear at a Lincolnshire zoo.

The parrots – named Billy, Elsie, Eric, Jade and Tyson – joined Lincolnshire Wildlife Park’s colony of 200 grey parrots in August. But soon after, they started encouraging each other to swear.

“We saw it very quickly – we are quite used to parrots swearing but we’ve never had five at the same time,” Steve Nichols, CEO of the wildlife park, told PA. “Most parrots clam up outside, but for some reason these five relish it.”

“People have come to us but they think it’s highly amusing, we haven’t had one complaint,” he said. “When a parrot tells you to fuck off, it amuses people very highly. It’s brought a big smile to a really hard year.”

When the birds realized staff members were laughing at their swearing, they started laughing too.

"But when you get four or five together that have learnt the swearing and naturally learnt the laughing so when one swears, one laughs and before you know it just got to be like an old working men's' club scenario where they are all just swearing and laughing," Nichols told Lincolnshire Live.

Reminded me of one of my favorite jokes:

A man inherited a parrot. At first he thought this was a good thing. But the parrot would do nothing but swear. It's language could have offended hardened sailors.

On the first day the man played the parrot soothing music and put its condition down to the stress of moving.

On the second day he tried witty put downs, but the parrots language continued to get worse.

On the third day he ignored it. Nothing worked, the parrot still let forth a torrent of blue words.

On the fourth day he snapped after a particularly creative insult involving his mother, a goat and the local vicar, the man grabbed the parrot and thrust him into the freezer.

For a few minutes the parrot continued unabated. Then everything went quiet. The man, worried that he had killed the parrot, took a peek into the freezer. The parrot hopped out onto his arm and was strangely silent for a minute, and then said:

"I am most terribly sorry, old chap, if I in any way offended you earlier with my choice language, it will never happen again"

The man was speechless, and looked at the bird in disbelief from its change in attitude,

The bird continued:

"By the way....could I just ask......what did the chicken do?"

I'm too old for this shit

I'm too tired for this shit

I don't get paid enough for this shite

I'm too sober for this shit

I don't have time for this shit

Darn, I can't get the image of the swearing and laughing Lincolnshire zoo parrots out of my head.

Those zoo keepers are such a bunch of stupid good-for-nothing buttheads for separating the parrots.
Taken from Africa as slaves to entertain white folks, they are put in prison so that they cannot fly. Now they are forbidden to laugh at the visitors and have fun. Parrot lives matter.
