Ivica,

Thanks for starting this thread.  While we all fear what the future will hold for us, due to the ravages of AGW/CC, it never hurts to lighten each day with some humor.

New view on microbiota (http://www.gutmicrobiotawatch.org/glossary/) (an organ) should trigger (when?) a revolution in Pharmacology/Cosmetic/Food Industry.
Effects of their products on microbiota were never tested.

Bioinformatics ((Meta)Genomic) did tremendous exponential increase of sequencing power (at 10:32...) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acKE9E67XKE&list=PLFC21BE588FE8DA6B) in the last 2 decades:
Kb -> Mb -> Gb -> Tb
b = (gene's) base

Ivica,On Google  I zoomed in on the area north northwest of Irkutsk. The area looks like some large scale agriculture mixed with timbered land. I was wondering if spring burning of slash and stumps may be intentional. On google it looked like a fairly heavily populated area of Siberia. It looked like a nice place to stop and look around if I ever make the trans Siberian rail trip.

Some haunting photographs from Gideon Mendel's Drowning World

How do you produce art about climate change? Everyone from writers to painters to film-makers itch to grapple with this question – but often struggle, getting bogged down in the complicated science, or the worthiness of the subject. It's the same for photographers: "There's a real problem with the image of climate change; it's either evidence – 'the water was up to here, and now it's there' – or it's cute polar bears," says Gideon Mendel.

He has, however, been absorbed with an ongoing photographic project, zooming in on one aspect of climate change: flooding. Mendel's series, Drowning World, not only shows the effect of flooding on communities, but also encompasses traditional portraiture, and explores the often striking visuals such huge influxes of water produce.
Story in today's Independent (http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/art/features/after-the-flood-from-haiti-to-britain-one-man-has-captured-the-devastation-of-our-increasingly-deluged-lands-8627553.html)
This exhibition looks worth a visit if you are going to be in London.
Gideon Mendel's Drowning World is at Tiwani Contemporary, London W1, 7 June to 27 July; tiwani.co.uk

It's always a good time to romanticize the great oudoors, especially with the approach of summertime in the north. Nothing like the vibes of Creedence Clearwater to put you in a time when all you want to do is laze by a river all day, shoot the breeze with everyone you meet, go off the grid, and enjoy the sunlight. Songs like these are always a good reminder of what we're fighting for in the wake of climate change.

Title: "Pre" El Nino...
Post by: Buddy on June 24, 2013, 05:15:42 PM
When scientists make their "call" for an El Nino event......the oceans have already warmed in the central equatorial Pacific for MANY MONTHS a considerable amount.

In some ways....that isn't the most "enlightening" of information.  Somewhat like calling "the bottom" of the stock market 5 months AFTER it was already rising.

I believe we are LIKELY near a turning point in the sea surface temperatures of the central EQUATORIAL Pacific (if you were to draw a vertical line that starts at the center of the coast of Alaska and head south...........and intersects a horizontal line that you draw from the center of  coast of Ecuador towards the WEST.......where those two lines intersect is the area I am talking about).

The ocean waters have been "neutral to cool" in that area for the last several months......and indeed, the area just west of Ecuador has had a very cool anomaly over the past couple of months.   All the while.....many other parts of the Pacific have been very warm.

Over the last two weeks.....the "cool anomaly" off the coast of Ecuador has been moderating.....and a few small areas of the central Pacific (due south of Alaska and due west of Ecuador) have been warming (still SMALL areas right now......but everything starts small at the beginning).

I know that NOAA is calling for a likely "neutral" position on El Nino through the end of this year, and they have certain "requirements" (ie monthly average for 5 straight months must exceed a certain amount over the average...etc).  But what I am trying to say....is that we are likely NOW at the turning point, where over the next SEVERAL MONTHS....the central Pacific will be heating up......and perhaps towards the fall of this year....that NOAA will be looking towards forecasting an El Nino that will start by the 2nd quarter of 2014 (April or May of 2014).

So when I say "Pre El Nino".....I am talking about the "process" of the beginning of warming waters that MAY likely lead towards an "El Nino event" 8 months or so in the future.

The SECOND MAP from the top of the following link shows the area I am referring to:

The latest weekly El Nino forecast was released earlier today by the cpc. The strengthening of the sub surface positive temperature anomalies over the last few weeks is interesting.
Still though, little support for anything other than neutral in the next few months.

<<Still though, little support for anything other than neutral in the next few months.>>

I ABSOLUTELY AGREE.  It is a "process"......and it would take several months of warming temps for NOAA to even change their outlook for early NEXT YEAR.  But big issues always start out as small issues......

Post by: Neven on July 10, 2013, 09:52:13 PM
Amazing, because that's where I thought it was.  :)

My father told me a story this summer about how, when he was small, 6 years old or so, he was told to accompany the neighbour who wanted to sell her horse on the market in Omiš. My father was pretty headstrong and refused, because it's quite a long walk. But then they told him that he would see the sea, and he agreed to go.

And so they went, the neighbour, my father and the horse. But a couple of miles before reaching the spot where that video was shot (and where the sea appears in view for the first time) the horse fell and broke its leg.

The neighbour told my father to stay and watch the horse, while she would go to the town and see if she could organize a lorry or something. And so my father sat there for half a day, with the horse neighing in pain, until the lorry finally came to take the horse away.

They then returned to the village. He didn't see the sea that day.

As a former member of the US Intelligence Community I can state that, at least at the analytic and planning levels, they are not in the denier camp. 

But one must keep in mind what their mission is and that will tell you a story.  Their sworn duty (in complete seriousness) is to protect and defend the United States (and a big percentage of them take it very seriously).  If by helping someone else we can make our own situation better so be it.  But, if, in doing our duty to take care of job #1, it lessens the prospects for some other entity, well, that is life as they say. 

American's as a people do not recognize a tribe bigger than the US that we have responsibility to take care of.  And we often struggle with anything bigger than a State or our local region.  I would not expect our track record of working with the global  "we" to be improved over the next couple of decades.

Arxiv article "Quantum Optical Metrology -- The Lowdown on High-N00N States (http://arxiv.org/abs/0904.0163)" submitted in 2009 is a review of some recent theoretical and experimental advances in field of quantum optical metrology.

Hello Ivica,

Today I read the newspaper saying a vietnamese family found in the jungle living alone for 40 years, they do speak also as an example of the lykov family in Russia :

They speak about Agafia wich you wrote about some time ago ! She looks like her !

Arcticio, yes, such image thread would be good to have.

Phenomenom showed above (https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,179.msg12060.html#msg12060) is the result of a forecast of extreme weather event (i.e. something potentionaly/possibly dangerous).
People didn't ask for published and peer reviewed material first, they acted.
Acted because of their feeling of 'connection' (ownership-money, usability, pet, fetish...) with car and knowing that car can not protect itself.
In a short, they felt that was their problem which needs their action.

Discussion about reason(s) for lack of feeling of conectedness, belonginess, togetherness, societal and overall one, belongs to a heart of human problem and deserves own topic under Rest (my opinion).

That wouldn't be so bad...

... if the houses were being built to near zero energy standards for heating/cooling, and were built to last centuries without needing to be replaced...

... and there was suitable infrastructural support to connect everything together without predicating mass transit upon fossil fuels.

I'm guessing they're none of the above though.

Good grief. That is 46 minutes of my life I won't get back. Let me get this right: they are saying that when we run out of oil we can use biofuels, because that's totes non-Saudi Arabian.  There'll be a nasty patch when there's not enough food to go around and we'll suffer cuts to electricity and GPS, but then everyone can start raising hens and growing veg on empty city centre lots, and they'll grow fuel from algae and planes and cars can start again (for rich people).

You're right. Its consoling note was very jarring as it seemed to be suggesting: OK, oil's gone, so let's look at alternatives to oil so we can carry on the same way as before. There was nothing about ways people could cut consumption. Nothing that recognised - seriously - the real scale of our interconnectedness. It implied things could get up and running again after a few hiccups, although "societies will be fractured". Actually, if societies were fractured they wouldn't get up and running very quickly, but any society that manages to survive this sort of horror (and obvs it won't happen overnight like in this silly documentary) will have learned to co-operate and survive a whole lot of hardship. The focus on biofuels was creepy. I suppose this sort of disaster-porn documentary has a value in making people think imaginatively. I just don't think it makes people think imaginatively enough. And I'm an idiot, because I didn't notice the date. :)

Amazing Creation in front of our eyes:

Energy converts into subatomical particles which 'unites' creating light atoms.
Light atoms unites creating first stars which creates heavier atoms.
Atoms unites creating molecules.
Molecules unites creating life.
Life unites creating ?

'Fusion' everywhere, except in human society where - as it seems to me - destruction/divide&conquer/'fission' prevails.

Meanwhile: Universe expands, accelerating.

Recent ArXiv article: "Whither All the Scope and Generality of Bell's Theorem? (http://arxiv.org/abs/1301.1653)"
Recent Usenet activity (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/sci.physics.research/1tZjpSlnQJk). Subject history goes for a 6+ years already, I think, ArXiv example (http://arxiv.org/find/all/1/all:+AND+Joy+Christian/0/1/0/all/0/1).

I don't see anyone really/successfully debunking his reasoning but I don't know enough about the subject to have my mind clear on that. I'm only a passenger (https://youtu.be/wWU1xMyxFIk), one time visitor (https://youtu.be/vx2u5uUu3DE), present in this particular range of space and time.

Great news about Turing, but I suppose it is too much to expect all the other victims of that law to get the same pardon!

I recently read a biography of Turing (by Andrew Hodges). Apparently, despite his mathematical ability, when he was at Bletchley Park his chess-playing ability was a bit of a joke. The UK chess champion, Harry Golombek also worked there, and was able to give Turing Queen odds and still win. Once when Alan resigned, Golombek was able to turn the board around and win from a position that Turing had given up as hopeless!

This explains a lot.  I thought they were bought or just a**holes.

Canadian researchers have confirmed what most people suspected all along: that internet trolls are archetypal Machiavellian sadists.
 
In a survey conducted by the group of psychologists, people who partake in so-called trolling online showed signs of sadism, psychopathy, and were Machiavellian in their manipulation of others and their disregard for morality.

The researchers defined online trolling as “the practice of behaving in a deceptive, destructive, or disruptive manner in a social setting on the Internet” for no purpose other than their pleasure

And the internet makes it possible. In real life you'd just punch them in the face or shoot them once they got obnoxious enough. Hence the much greater proportion of trolls online vs reality, it's a cowards pastime.

This should probably be in the (really) stupid questions thread, or the arctic hallucinations thread, if we had one...but does anyone else see an angry elephant in this sea ice map?:

Though I'm loath to challenge your interpretation, what you're seeing is obviously a female Columbia Woolly Mammoth, in pain while attempting successfully to void her last meal which probably consisted of some variety of Arctic Jalapeno.
The possibility of this being an Elephant is ruled out by the hanging hair & a Mastodon would sport much shorter tusks.[size=78%]

But the market is operating efficiently. Part of the operation of a modern capitalist market is that you have wasted idle resources in achieving your optimum profitability. Empty houses? Unemployed workers? Homeless people? Food to burn in engines? Starving people?

They are simply spare capacity or "necessary" wastage in the system as the world works today.

Er, while the camera can be covered to stop quiet activation - I'm not sure how a website would use your camera to see what you are looking at...

They use cookies, generally, to tailor advertising to your browsing habits. I haven't looked into the details enough to know how they make them so heavily shared between web sites (I suspect it's common sourcing of the adverts, which are linked elsewhere), it always strikes me as rather incongruous sometimes to see some of the adverts I do in very out of context places (given the very wide diversity of sites I visit).

So you're on a website looking up an answer to a programming question, and you get an advert for, say, welding rods?
Title: Re: Arctic Café
Post by: icefest on April 09, 2014, 12:24:21 AM
Cookies and javascript are simple to use to track which pages to visit. Together with the two main advertising companies most ads you see will be somewhat tailored to you.

If you want to stop that then private browsing in combination with a javascript blocker will stop that - and it'll work much better than covering the camera with a bit of tape.

I am not an expert in how it is done I just saw something that said it was being done.

(note a google search could not find it just now)

I expect tracking where your eyes are looking and knowing what is displayed where on your screen at that time is how you would do it.

But maybe that part is BS?  The hack the webcam to see what is going on within view thing is done in mass of course.

A little bit about cookies for behaviour driven advertising:

http://www.mediumblue.com/newsletters/internet-advertising.html (http://www.mediumblue.com/newsletters/internet-advertising.html)

It's by far and away the simplest way to do it that I know of and for corporate purposes no real sense expending more time and effort than you need to. It's also a bit of a pain to switch off as many sites require cookie data to work properly.

Some companies of course - like google - can also drive the adverts using data from a much bigger chunk of your online activity as so many people use them as a portal (and indeed I think most of their income is from pay per click advertising - adwords is in a lot of places, although I think it may try to match content to the surrounding site rather than to the behaviour of the user).

I expect tracking where your eyes are looking and knowing what is displayed where on your screen at that time is how you would do it.

But maybe that part is BS?  The hack the webcam to see what is going on within view thing is done in mass of course.

Using the microphone and webcam on the computer to spy on the surroundings - sure.

Tracking the eyes to cross reference with the screen - maybe it's technically possible, but I'm leaning towards skepticism for it as a useful activity. You've got all you need in the data already for any purpose I can think of. If we're talking web stuff you don't even really need the screen - as the data used to render it will be transmitted.

Can't really say I know much about it either though,

About fifteen years ago, for my sins, i was around when some very large databases were being compiled, at that time it took about 10 clicks to positively tie a human to the datastream. Now, I understand, that you are positively identified as soon as you go online, that is, as soon as your computer wakes up and makes an internet connection. Just an IP address or a phone number is quite enough.

Use Tails and Tor, very carefully, for anything you don't want tracked.

A conference will be available soon about Thomas Piketty

http://www.gc.cuny.edu/Public-Programming/Calendar/Detail?id=24235 (http://www.gc.cuny.edu/Public-Programming/Calendar/Detail?id=24235)

The French economist Thomas Piketty (Paris School of Economics) will present a lecture on his new book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century. In this landmark work, Piketty argues that the main driver of inequality—the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the rate of economic growth—threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values. He calls for political action and policy intervention. Joseph Stiglitz (Columbia University), Paul Krugman (Princeton University), and Steven Durlauf (University of Wisconsin–Madison) will comment. The event will be introduced and moderated by Janet Gornick and Branko Milanovic (Graduate Center, Luxembourg Income Study Center). - See more at: http://www.gc.cuny.edu/Public-Programming/Calendar/Detail?id=24235#sthash.f9VKh5K8.dpuf (http://www.gc.cuny.edu/Public-Programming/Calendar/Detail?id=24235#sthash.f9VKh5K8.dpuf)
Title: Re: Arctic Café

That's interesting. A friend of mine sent me a link last week to a Guardian article discussing the new book by Piketty:

Capitalism simply isn't working and here are the reasons why (http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/apr/12/capitalism-isnt-working-thomas-piketty)
 
Economist Thomas Piketty's message is bleak: the gap between rich and poor threatens to destroy us

Suddenly, there is a new economist making waves – and he is not on the right. At the conference of the Institute of New Economic Thinking in Toronto last week, Thomas Piketty's book Capital in the Twenty-First Century got at least one mention at every session I attended. You have to go back to the 1970s and Milton Friedman for a single economist to have had such an impact.

Like Friedman, Piketty is a man for the times. For 1970s anxieties about inflation substitute today's concerns about the emergence of the plutocratic rich and their impact on economy and society. Piketty is in no doubt, as he indicates in an interview in today's Observer New Review, that the current level of rising wealth inequality, set to grow still further, now imperils the very future of capitalism. He has proved it.

Frighteningly, temperatures have risen around 4° Fahrenheit since Thoreau's day, and many of the plants he saw have vanished. Analysis suggests plants that can change their flowering time survive, while less adaptable species don't. The harsh message of climate change is "adapt, move or die". For plants that can't adapt or move their range to cooler climes, local extinction is likely. It is a message that may also apply to humans, if we don't heed the advice Primack suggests we take from Thoreau: "live simply".

A new movement is emerging from the ashes of the old environmental activism. Focusing on current facts rather than wishful thinking, it focuses on adaptation and resilience to changed conditions. Farmer Wendell Berry is right: Without commitment to the health of a particular local place, no place will remain livable for long, especially as out-of-control climate shifts spiral forward. Those who have a deep understanding of how nature works and a sustaining connection to it; who can grow some food, build shelter and save water; and who can be intelligently resilient, flexibly reactive, calm and nimble on their feet -- may have the best chance of survival.

The good news is that according to the latest IPCC report, if we enact aggressive emissions limits now, we could hold the warming to 2°C. That's only HALF an ice age unit, which is probably no big deal.

The FDA can be quite annoying at times.  Wood is almost certainly a superior surface for aging cheese, compared to impermeable synthetic surfaces.  Put a round of cheese on an impermeable surface that can't "breathe" and you'll surely foster (and fester) bacteria on the bottom of the cheese.  Sheesh.  Didn't they learn anything from the household cutting board research?  Wood is anti-bacterial.  See:
http://faculty.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/faculty/docliver/Research/cuttingboard.htm (http://faculty.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/faculty/docliver/Research/cuttingboard.htm)

indeed, there is a lot to argue in favor of the Seralini study. When they say there is not enough data to prove something...All the studies that have allowed GMO in Europe were based on the same statistal flow...the main reason is it is very expensive to have enough rats...Seralini admit that there is a problem with these statistics, he is saying that we should invest more in studies...do you see anything coming ????

Some impressive pictures of life in eastern Greenland.
“The people of Ittoqqortoormiit truly live a life on the edge. The town is at the edge of the settled area of the thinly populated eastern Greenland. The closest inhabited area is 800km to the south. To the north of Ittoqqortoormiit lies the world’s largest national park. But residents of the isolated Ittoqqortoormiit are also living at the edge of what is humanly possible. Shipments of outside goods are few and far between, and traditional hunting plays a larger role in people’s lives than it does elsewhere in Greenland.”

The Cook Inlet Tribal Council of Alaska has funded the first video game made by native Alaskans.

Money's not the only thing that the Alaskan native society—made up of eight tribal communities—is investing into Never Alone. The upcoming video game will also hold their culture, artwork and folktales in a vessel designed to carry a sense of the Inuit spirit far away from their southcentral Alaskan homeland. But, yes, the game's origins initially came from a more pragmatic concern. "We wanted to find a way to chart our own destiny financially," tribal council CEO Gloria O'Neill told me recently. O'Neill, who came to New York City recently with E-Line Media development partner Alan Gershenfeld to show Never Alone to press, explained that the Cook Inlet community remains reliant on government funding to help maintain services.
So, why a video game? "I just had a sense that we as a people have so much to offer the world," O'Neill told me. "We want to take back our culture out of the museum. I wanted to make an investment where we could share who we are with the world, we could have a part in creating it and it wasn't somebody creating it for us." Gershenfeld said Artists, tribal elders and storytellers from southcentral Alaska are lending their talents to the game.

The game's main character is a young Iñupiaq girl named Nuna who's trying to rescue her homeland from an endless blizzard. She meets a mystical arctic fox that help her and their bond isn't just cute. It also reflects the importance of interdependency, one of the core Alaskan Native values that O'Neill says the community wants to transmit through Never Alone. "We have stories that have kept us alive [as a community] for 10,000 years," O'Neill said. One such story casts the Northern Lights as the glowing spirits of children who died in the cold. In the folktale, those lost spirits want to snatch up the heads of still-living kids and use them to play with, like soccer balls. To prevent that, kids need to make sure that their hoods are pulled tight on their heads. The purpose of the story is to drive home the importance of bundling up, by invoking the fearsome power of the arctic cold.

Hi guys!

I brought the latest edition of TATW — The Arctic This Week (http://www.thearcticinstitute.org/2014/08/082014-TATW26.html) — which is actively publishing again after its summer hiatus.

Always some interesting reads, and I'm personally especially heartened by the news of a joint Swedish — Russian — US polar expedition to scientifically study the mysterious 'Dragon Breath' CH₄ emissions from the submerged Russian tundra. So all in all — Oden the Icebreaker breaks the ice and leads the way.

Avaaz this morning:

Dear friends,



Click to pledge so our movement to save the world can hit the streets on September 21st:

kr15    kr30    kr60    kr120    kr240

Pledge another amount
Scientists are screaming from the rooftops that climate change isn't just a bit of warming and some more storms. No exaggeration, our actual *survival* is at risk -- this is a fight to save the world.

Our biosphere is in a fragile balance. Warm it a bit, and feedback loops start to kick in. Warming melts the arctic ice that reflects sunlight, which means more sunlight absorbed, which means more warming, which melts more ice etc. etc. These feedback loops have begun, and they're approaching 'tipping points' where they spin out of our control, threatening everything we love.

The UN understands this, and they've called an emergency summit of world leaders in New York to discuss action, even inviting our movement into the meeting! The problem is, our heads of state are politicians, not scientists, and they respond to public pressure. They see the polls, but they ask, "where are the protests?" Sept. 21st is our answer.

With thousands of organisations from unions to faith groups, and hundreds of thousands of people already signed up, we're about to launch the biggest climate change mobilisation in history, with marches from New York to Paris to Rio. On September 21st, we need to shake the world. To get there, we need to mobilise thousands of organisers, saturate subways and airwaves with ads, and mount an effective media operation.

If 50,000 of us contribute just a small amount in the next 5 days, we can make it happen. It's time to save the world, let's launch the movement that can do it.

Click to pledge now. Avaaz will only process our pledges if we raise enough:

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr15

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr30

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr60

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr120

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr240

To pledge an amount other than the ones listed above, click here.

This mobilisation has one goal: to show turnout. For a full 15 minutes, world leaders at the summit will have to sit and listen to our message, through images, videos, and more. The more of us hit the streets, the more powerful message we send to politicians that urgent action is their priority. New York is the focus, since that's where the summit is, and a huge turnout in the United States (which has traditionally lagged on climate change) will be most politically powerful.

Small donations from 50,000 of us in the next 5 days will allow us to:
purchase hundreds of radio and subway ads in New York and key cities to drive turnout
recruit hundreds of organisers to engage thousands of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of marchers
mount a serious media operation and engage celebrities to ensure the march gets covered
create big and bold stunts to create buzz in the media
bring 'climate survivors' and spokespeople from vulnerable communities to provide the media with powerful voices from the front lines of climate devastation
build an offline network of organisers, volunteers and allies that will deepen and strengthen all of our campaigning for years to come
We have 5 weeks left and not one day to lose to go as big as possible. Click to pledge now and Avaaz will only process the pledge if we raise enough:
         
   
YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr15

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr30

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr60

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr120

YES, I'LL PLEDGE kr240

To pledge an amount other than the ones listed above, click here.

Climate change threatens all of us. And in that way, it brings all of us together in a shared cause. Our obstacles are not just the short-sightedness of profit-hungry oil companies and the politicians they buy, but also our own willingness and choice to hope, and to act, before it's too late. Let's make that choice right now, and from it, build a movement to save the world.

With hope,

Ricken, Mia, Antonia, Emily, Ari, Nic, Alice, Emma and the whole Avaaz team.

Statoil moves forward with Rosneft cooperation in Barents Sea 
 
Statoil and Rosneft began exploratory drilling in the Barents Sea this week in spite of extensive western sanctions against Russia’s oil and gas industry (BO). The sanctions only apply to future contracts and projects and as such this current cooperation is technically licit within the current regime (FT). Statoil isn’t the only one getting in on the action, either. The Norwegian company North Atlantic Drilling concluded a far reaching deal with Rosneft this week that will give the Russian company access to Norwegian offshore technology and expertise (BO). While Norwegian companies continue to work with their Russian counterparts on both sides of the border, a lobbying group for the Norwegian oil and gas industry expressed its worry that the sanctions against Russia will eventually slow oil and gas exploration activity in Norway’s Arctic (Reuters).

In other news, the old army base in the New Siberian Islands (1933–1993) will have fresh and renewed activity, basically defence and scientific research. Maybe to do with the methane situation in the Laptev Sea around the islands? And no, Harper, the Russians are not invading Canada this time either.

Avaaz this morning:

Avaaz again today:

Dear friends,

I can sincerely say this is the most important petition we've ever done.

Sorry for the language, but one top scientist just warned that we are all "f*cked" if global warming releases gigantic amounts of methane gas from the arctic tundra. The UN knows this is one of several catastrophic climate threats we're facing, and is bringing world leaders to New York for a major summit on this global emergency.

Hundreds of thousands of us will take to the streets for the People’s Climate March just before the summit. Let’s make sure that on that day we deliver the largest Avaaz petition ever, for the only solution: mobilize the world to shift to 100% clean energy. Click to sign the petition below with one click and tell everyone:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/100_clean_final/?bdBqMab&signup=1&cl=5761704580&v=44869 (https://secure.avaaz.org/en/100_clean_final/?bdBqMab&signup=1&cl=5761704580&v=44869)

Here's the petition:

To national, local, and international leaders:
Scientists warn us that climate change could accelerate beyond our control, threatening our survival and everything we love. We call on you to keep global temperature rise under the unacceptably dangerous level of 2 degrees C, by phasing out carbon pollution to zero. To achieve this, you must urgently forge realistic global, national and local agreements, to rapidly shift our societies and economies to 100% clean energy by 2050. Do this fairly, with support to the most vulnerable among us. Our world is worth saving and now is our moment to act. But to change everything, we need everyone. Join us.

Sign it with one click here:
https://secure.avaaz.org/en/100_clean_final/?bdBqMab&signup=1&cl=5761704580&v=44869 (https://secure.avaaz.org/en/100_clean_final/?bdBqMab&signup=1&cl=5761704580&v=44869)

Whether it's the 'arctic methane bomb', the rapid acidification of our oceans, or apocalyptic flooding, climate change is the biggest threat humanity is facing, and we need the biggest petition ever to meet it. If we make it massive, the number of us who sign will be read out to all leaders at the summit, published in hundreds of media articles, and be delivered by our marches worldwide.

100% clean energy is a realistic goal. Already, 20% of the world's electricity comes from clean energy, and solar power is cheaper than coal in many countries! We just need to get our leaders to agree to put their foot on the accelerator.

We're gearing up for the largest climate mobilization in history on September 21. Already hundreds of events are organised and hundreds of thousands of people signed up. But the events are designed to deliver our petition to decision makers. Let's make it the largest call to action ever. Join now and tell everyone - sign the petition with one click below:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/100_clean_final/?bdBqMab&signup=1&cl=5761704580&v=44869 (https://secure.avaaz.org/en/100_clean_final/?bdBqMab&signup=1&cl=5761704580&v=44869)

We're all different, and beautifully diverse. But whoever and wherever we are, climate change threatens everything we love, and brings all of us together. Let's come together now.

With hope,

Ricken, Danny, Lisa, Judy, Alex, Iain, and the rest of the Avaaz team

Iceland’s volcanoes have a long history of being an international nuisance
Irritating the world since 937 (at least). What could be a great marketing slogan attracting tourists to Iceland is actually an examination of the country’s volcanoes and their power to wreak global havoc over the last centuries. Among others, their eruptions have been blamed for the French Revolution (AJ).

Russian Forces Headed to Permanent Military Base on New Siberian Islands
Six ships from Russia’s Northern Fleet–accompanied by nuclear-powered ice- breakers–are en route to a newly reopened military base on the New Siberian Islands. According to Northern Fleet commander Admiral Vladimir Korolyov, “The main task of the latest expedition by a number of Northern Fleet ships to the Arctic is to deliver staff, equipment and supplies to the taskforce that from this year will serve on the New Siberian Islands on a permanent basis” (Telegraph, RIAN, Daily Mail, RBTH). The base–which originally became operational in 1933 but was abandoned some 60 years later following the collapse of the USSR–is part of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s ongoing strategy to reinvest in Arctic platforms and increase Russia’s presence in the region (newser). According to Russia Today, while “Moscow sent a first batch of equipment and supplies to the New Siberian Islands last year...This time, the staff and taskforce will be staying on to serve...” Meanwhile, pilots attached to the Northern Fleet have begun training at the Nitka training range attached to the Novofedorivka air base in Crimea for the first time in four years (BO).

Statoil forced to halt Arctic drilling after environmental challenge
Statoil has stopped drilling on its Arctic Pingvin prospect this week due to a court challenge to its environmental permit (Reuters). The ruling will now go before the Norwegian Environmental Agency, where environmental groups are ready to ask for Statoil to permanently halt exploration on the prospect, its most northern in the Norwegian Barents (BO).

"No 8 Wire

Kiwis are famous for their ingenuity and self-sufficiency. It is said that Kiwis can create amazing things — all they need is ‘a piece of Number 8 wire’. No 8 wire is a certain gauge of wire that was incredibly popular for use as fencing wire around New Zealand’s many farms. Ironically, until 1963, it was imported from other countries. Because No. 8 wire was widely available, it was used for a variety of tasks, and it has become a symbol of kiwi adaptability."

Arctic ice cap in ‘death spiral’

THE Arctic ice cap has melted so much that open water is now just 350 miles from the North Pole, the shortest distance recorded, scientists say.

Satellite observations, from the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC)
last week, coincide with a prediction from a leading British polar
researcher that the summer ice cap is now so thin it is likely to disappear
within five years, possibly as early as 2015.

2014 ????

accepted by the Editorial Board June 19, 2013 (received for review March 15, 2013)

Seems like it is talking about "recent decades" prior to 2013 and comparing to periods 500 and more years long.

If you are going to post a link, please try to characterise it reasonably.

During the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA; ∼1,000–500 cal B.P.), the period most similar to recent decades, warm and dry climatic conditions resulted in peak biomass burning, but severe fires favored less-flammable deciduous vegetation, such that fire frequency remained relatively stationary. These results suggest that boreal forests can sustain high-severity fire regimes for centuries under warm and dry conditions, with vegetation feedbacks modulating climate–fire linkages. The apparent limit to MCA burning has been surpassed by the regional fire regime of recent decades, which is characterized by exceptionally high fire frequency and biomass burning. This extreme combination suggests a transition to a unique regime of unprecedented fire activity. However, vegetation dynamics similar to feedbacks that occurred during the MCA may stabilize the fire regime, despite additional warming.

seems to be saying we are getting more biomass burning but may well get stabilization of high fire frequency as vegetation responds.

Every occurrence of 'decade' seems to be part of recent decades or several decades or similar. The shortest period referred to seems to be
The subsequent sharp rise in CHAR to values similar to the MCA peak corresponds to marked warming and increased forest burning in Alaska during the past few decades (32).

Even 'past few decades' seems rather longer than one year.

From Why Greenland’s ‘dark snow’ should worry you article:
I would expect more than any year since 2000 as that article suggested comprehensive satellite measurements began in 2000 and 2014 had most wildfires. Area burned may be a more important measure.

Longer term I expect not:

From PNAS article
(https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pnas.org%2Fcontent%2F110%2F32%2F13055%2FF2.large.jpg&hash=578eee78ac13a57d007d5af2ed2c9a97)
Looks like some years near 1990 were worse? (Certainly if the level of 3 is on a log scale meaning ten times more than a level of 2.)

(https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pnas.org%2Fcontent%2F110%2F32%2F13055%2FF3.large.jpg&hash=9a2575631088b8aa9b32ff74149a48c8)

Medieval Climate Anomaly seems to have a peak at about 2 on that CHAR scale and recent decades exceed that, but 2014 probably doesn't exceed most of the period 1983-1995. There may well be quite a lot of noise during Medieval Climate Anomaly which has been smoothed out. Therefore some individual years during that time may well be worse than even the period around 1990.

Anthropogenic aerosols in the atmosphere have the potential to affect regional-scale land hydrology through solar dimming1, 2. Increased aerosol loading may have reduced historical surface evaporation over some locations3, but the magnitude and extent of this effect is uncertain. Any reduction in evaporation due to historical solar dimming may have resulted in an increase in river flow. Here we formally detect and quantify the historical effect of changing aerosol concentrations, via solar radiation, on observed river flow over the heavily industrialized, northern extra-tropics

(https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.adn.com%2Fsites%2Fdefault%2Ffiles%2Fstyles%2Fad_slideshow_940%2Fpublic%2Farcticnightlights.jpg%3Fitok%3D0IS64D3W&hash=35ef046db41e86d7c077cb30e3fe6778)
Suomi NPP’s Day/Night Band can clearly detect manmade and natural developments, like shipping, oil and gas development and sea ice break-up at night, with or without lunar illumination. Its resolution is a little bit coarse -- 750 meters (2,460 feet) -- but its sensitivity is impressive, allowing it to detect light from a source as small as a street lamp. You may have seen some images from the satellite already, such as of the Nile Delta aglow or of the Korean Peninsula, where the contrast in artificial lighting between the two countries is as stark as day and night.

Today my father has come up with the reason that the Arctic ice cap is disappearing so quickly. He recently joined a cruise that visited Svalbard and noticed the crew hacking large amounts of ice off a berg and taking it back to the ship - apparently the ice put into drinks fizzes as it melts! Now - considering the proliferation of cruise ships visiting the area this accounts for the reduction in the ice cap.

So all you people out there with your fancy ideas graphs and predictions - I'm sorry - the problems been solved. Neven you can close the site down now!!

Just wanting the spread the work about this climate related fund-raising project.
The doco 'Thin Ice' has already been very well received and beyond New Zealand's shores.
The movie's website has all sorts of clips & the trailer if you want more info:

http://thiniceclimate.org/ (http://thiniceclimate.org/)

Some of you out in Neven-land may, like me, be interested in donating something to such a project? (I think this type of fundraising is a great way to support international projects and this way you can donate as little as NZ$10 or as much as you want.)

CLIMATE DOCUMENTARY THIN ICE RAISING MONEY FOR US BROADCAST
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thinicefilm/editing-thin-ice-climate-science-documentary-for-b (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thinicefilm/editing-thin-ice-climate-science-documentary-for-b)

Thin Ice, the superb documentary about climate science and scientists filmed and produced by New Zealand and British climate scientists, has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to finance a new edit of the film so that it can be shown on public TV in the US. From the Kickstarter page:

"Why do we need help? The global screening on Earth Day, 2013, reached over 200 locations worldwide, and many others have seen it since. Now we have a chance to re-edit the film for screening on American Public Television – if we can raise the NZ$27,500 (US$22,000) in 30 days needed for the re-edit and promotion.

We want the film to be seen by as many people as possible on TV in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. We already have subtitles in 8 languages, so with the shortened film Thin Ice will be that much more accessible to schools and communities worldwide."

They are about 1/2 way to their target and have just 10 more days to go.

"The Newsroom" is a series on HBO, written by Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the excellent "The West Wing" series about the goings-on inside the White House, among other series and movies.  Mother Jones fact-checked the info presented in this episode:
I watch too much TV drama, so I can say this with a degree of certainty: It's rare that climate change comes up. (Television news programs also contain "tepid" coverage, in general, according to watchdog group Media Matters). That's why it was so weird/exciting for this climate reporter when global warming received its very own subplot on Aaron Sorkin's HBO drama The Newsroom over the last two episodes.

"More than 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from urban areas," Roman was quoted as saying. "If we're going to reduce these emissions, then we'll have to do more than just use energy-efficient cars and appliances. We also need to understand how dominant social phenomena, the changing demographics of urban centers, and socio-cultural settings affect energy-use decisions."

On Christmas Day in 1914, WW1 soldiers spontaneously put down their weapons, celebrated together, and shared rations.
Although some men held back, the Christmas Truce still delivered an unambiguous message to the world that the ideal of a universal humanity, along with basic values like human kindness, had not yet fallen victim to the war. The war would continue, but that declaration would not be effaced, lasting until the present day.

The Onion reports on the state of climate change denial.  (Satire.)

Report: Climate Change Skeptics Could Reach Catastrophic Levels By 2020
WASHINGTON—In a worrying development that could have dire implications for the health of the planet, a report published Wednesday by the Environmental Protection Agency suggests that the number of climate change skeptics could reach catastrophic levels by the year 2020.

According to the agency’s findings, the rising quantity and concentration of individuals who willfully deny or downplay the ruinous impact of the ongoing climate crisis will no longer be manageable by the end of the decade, leading to disastrous consequences for global ecosystems that may well prove irreversible.

Why it's good to laugh at climate change.
While climate change itself is never going to be a barrel of laughs, we seem to be suffering from a collective lack of imagination in teasing out the tragi-comic narratives that climate change surely provides.

Thinking harder about how to plug climate change into our cultural circuits – not as ‘edutainment’ but simply as a target of satire in its own right – will be crucial in overcoming the social silence around the issue. The science-communicators don’t seem to be making much progress with the public: maybe its time to let the comedians have their turn.

Executive Order (http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2015/01/21/executive-order-enhancing-coordination-national-efforts-arctic) to "streamline" U.S. Arctic research:
 
President Barack Obama issued an executive order aimed at “Enhancing Coordination of National Efforts in the Arctic.” Significantly, the order “establishes an ‘Arctic Executive Steering Committee’ to guide federal policy and coordinate with state, local, Native governments, research and academic institutions and nonprofit organizations” (AD).

More quotes:

The Arctic has critical long-term strategic, ecological, cultural, and economic value, and it is imperative that we continue to protect our national interests in the region, which include: national defense; sovereign rights and responsibilities; maritime safety; energy and economic benefits; environmental stewardship; promotion of science and research; and preservation of the rights, freedoms, and uses of the sea as reflected in international law.

There is established an Arctic Executive Steering Committee (Steering Committee), which shall provide guidance to executive departments and agencies (agencies) and enhance coordination of Federal Arctic policies across agencies and offices, and, where applicable, with State, local, and Alaska Native tribal governments and similar Alaska Native organizations, academic and research institutions, and the private and nonprofit sectors.

The Steering Committee shall consist of:
...
(iii) the Deputy Secretary or equivalent officer from the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, the Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Energy, and Homeland Security; the Office of the Director of National Intelligence; the Environmental Protection Agency; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; the National Science Foundation; the Arctic Research Commission; and the Office of Management and Budget; the Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, or his or her designee; and other agencies or offices as determined appropriate by the Chair.

(d) invite members of State, local, and Alaska Native tribal governments and similar Alaska Native organizations, and academic and research institutions to consult on issues or participate in discussions, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law.

BARACK OBAMA

“Arctic oil is incommensurate with 2ºC target" (http://barentsobserver.com/en/arctic/2015/01/arctic-oil-incommensurate-2oc-target-22-01)

Of course it is. Everyone understands that, but nobody cares.

During crisis hearings (government climate policy lies) in parliament in 2013, a former minister of the Norwegian government revealed the 2ºC target was already forsaken.

Feb 2.  It's Groundhog Day!  The famous Pennsylvania prognosticator, Punxsutawney Phil, has seen his shadow and declares six more weeks of winter weather.

Our former prime minister left his very short lasting (and completely undeserved) position as UN Climate Envoy to head the struggle to start a war against Russia in NATO. He did find time first to launch a so–called 'climate report' calling for increased and persistent growth as some sort of solution to the 'climate challenges'. People all over the world must have insanely increased living standards before we can start cutting our emissions. A death sentence for our planet in all but name.

Let's hope he is as bad at making world wars as he was solving the 'climate challenges'.

You can sort of generate your own anomaly maps (if you insist, you anomalous type, you) over at senorge.no, but these have no static URL that you can share or display:

(https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fd22d7v2y1t140g.cloudfront.net%2Fm_13633770_sYZGXKSGEZqf.png&hash=249a7472f3648997759df53df60f9383)

Those maps are however based on the North American self–styled normal period (1971–2000), and not the international WMO standard period used by SMHI (1961–1990). Of course making it more difficult to compare, which I suppose is why Norway has left the WMO standard, to go freestylin'.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven supported Vattenfall and their dirty coal operations in Germany a couple of days ago and said (freely translated), why would we want to harm Germany if they can continue operation.  :o

My view as a citizen of planet Earth, that is totally and absolutely not acceptable.

Background from Greenpeace (use giggle translate).

Sleepy,

This is only remote arctic, but you menton a very important point, may be worth its own thread here.
The reason, why Vattenfall is using german coal is, that this fossil fuel is highly subsidized by the german government and the taxpayers. If you read about german "Energiewende" the switch from nuclear and fossil to renewables, you will often read, that it is expensive due to high subsidizing costs and that energy costs have been rising for the consuments (not for companys, but this you won´t read in the press). You will never read or hear about how much fossil fuels are subsidized in Germany. You have to dive really deep into the internet to dig out the numbers.
Not only does Vattenfall (and others) get 100 Euro/ton coal only for burning this stuff (they do not need to produce electricity!), but they do not pay employer fees / social fees for the people working in the plants, they do not pay for restoring the landscape and so on and so on......
In reality subsidies for renewables are dwarfed by subsidies for fossil fuel, and this only because people are lazy and not willing to leave deep rooted traditions. The argument used by the government is employment in these areas where the coal plants are located, it is never mentioned that renewables would create many more employments than the few 1000 in german coal industry.
When you listen to your (mine) Prime minister Stefan Löfven you will realize that he is rather naive, not to say uncapable to think more complex.

Folke, thank you for your German insights. I totally agree.

This is the year Vattenfall's fairy tales and story telling should end. 2015 have been their target for fifteen years and they have failed miserably. They should be stopped dead right now and even prohibited to sell. Furter use should be banned. Stefan Löfven and his German counterparts should be the ones that makes this happen. And they don't. So they have failed miserably as well.

Everything is connected, in one way or another. Either they are ignorant fools or liars.

As for viddaloo's comment, he, you, me and Knausgård have all worked in Sweden. All, but viddaloo, live in southern Sweden and none of us are genuine Swedes... I've been called asocial by some beacuse I'm not much for small talk, but I still have my "sisu" left and that's confusing for real Swedes. So, when I browsed through viddaloo's link I smiled when I saw this.

"Then I realized he must have taken my silence personally. He must have thought I didn’t find it worth my time talking to him.

I wrote back and asked him if he’d seen any Bergman movies? No one talks there either. And Finland was even worse; there, no one ever said anything to each other. I wrote that I’m always like this, that I never say anything to people I don’t know, even when they’re having dinner at our house. He never answered."

It's very comfy to live in Sweden, you don't have to read too much about bad things since the news heads at SVT got new instructions last fall.

Man–made glaciers!

“Glacier Man,” a 74-year old former engineer named Chewang Norphel in Ladkah, India at 10,000 feet elevation imparts real time hard-core evidence that Earth’s climate is not stable. In fact, because of climatic instability, he built ten (10) artificial human-made glaciers to provide water for 10,000 villagers in the Himalayas.

Reflecting back on his retirement in 1995, Norphel says: “Every village I visited it would be the same thing: water scarcity. Glaciers were vanishing and streams were disappearing. People would ask me to bring them water. The government was starting to bring in grain rations. Water is the most precious commodity here,” Gaia Vince (former editor of the journal Nature Climate Change, news editor of Nature), Adventures in the Anthropocene,” Milkweed Editions, 2014, pgs. 56-57.

It is our great collective misfortune that the scientific community made its decisive diagnosis of the climate threat at the precise moment when an elite minority was enjoying more unfettered political, cultural, and intellectual power than at any point since the 1920s

Math Puzzle:

— If we reach 0 km2 ice extent this autumn and PIOMAS still reports 1000 km3 for the minimum when numbers are released in mid–October, and they base that on only one tiny ice–flake of 10 m diameter: A) How tall would that flake have to be? B) Would it affect the moon or other space bodies? C) Assuming the 10 m flake was in the deepest spot of the Arctic Ocean, what percentage would be under water, and what out in space?

1. Flake would be 12,500,000 km tall.
2. It wouldn't effect the moon because the moon doesn't orbit around the poles and the mas is negligible. It  wouldn't last long enough to bother anything else in space  because the first thing to  hit it would cause it to disintegrate.
3.  0.000% would be in the Arctic Ocean and 100.000% would be in space.

The real deception — or 'conspiracy', if you will — isn't that US generals decided in secret to deploy climate change to regime–change Beijing, which would be the silliest thing to do on a planet of abundant silliness, but that Obama and his chums — the so–called 'leaders' — care one iota about climate change and will honestly try to limit it at the Paris symposium or at any other so–called COP meeting. This new eco–mindedness is a show that the old one–percenters have decided to put on — for public consumption — to stop us from revolting in time against their (accidental) total destruction of the planet.

When I say 'accidental', it is because these forces, these very few people, relatively speaking, on top of the corporations that own the so–called 'leaders', are not intentionally planning for or wanting civilisational collapse. Rather, they are naive, stubborn old fools who think they can go on with their crazy fossil ways without anything cataclysmic ever happening to the earth or the biosphere. Or put in another way: They do not care. And it is most likely exactly their carelessness that is bringing down this planet.

Basically they think what evil capitalists have always thought: That the ocean is endless and air is free to pollute. The show they are putting on in Paris, though, is a well thought–out ploy to get us to think that they *do* care. You know: 'How could we not care when we explicitly say that we do care?'. Well, follow the money: It is *extremely* profitable at this stage for the one–percenters to put on a show where their puppets pretend to care. And therefore they do it. To make some more money.

This new eco–mindedness is a show that the old one–percenters have decided to put on — for public consumption — to stop us from revolting in time against their (accidental) total destruction of the planet.

I may modify this after having read JimD's excellent piece in the Silly Conspiracy Thread (to which I will provide no link). The change is this: Leaders *will* try to _limit_ climate change in Paris, but these limitations will be somewhere between the Black BAU and Green BAU persuasions.

I.e. way, way too slow. Not only too slow for *me* as an impatient individual, but also too slow for safeguarding humanity. Yes, as a species. Following the BAU lemming race path is like the Dodo birds deciding in a referendum to be hacked to death by sailors.

So in order to squeeze in a deception here, now that their "we will try to limit carbon emissions" is more truthful, albeit so slow as to essentially not really matter, we will have to include the setup of the IPCC, which is still the name of the UN climate panel. It can be argued that the IPCC and its findings were deceptively set up to provide a scientific basis for a Green BAU path that would better suit governments but be essentially inadequate as a solution to the problem.

There are many ways in which major powers have done this: Suffice to say, they control who sits in the panel, who edits reports, and what parts of those reports should see the light of day. It is a governmental, political body (so for once, I agree with the climate change deniers about something) that has nothing or very little to do with science (the way it was meant to be).

Having corrupted the IPCC to deliver more "pleasant" recommendations than a truly scientific body would do, polluticians can now honestly say they are doing their utmost to try to limit emissions in line with panel recommendations.

If you want an analogy for this tactic: Instead of just doing what his parents tell him to do, the teenager holds a gun to their head and asks them again:

— Mom, dad, what should I do today?
— Eat pizza and play more video game.
— All right!

This isn't doing what your folks told you to do, and polluticians are not doing what scientists tell them we need to do. They are doing what their own corrupted IPCC creation or Frankenstein monster tells them to do. They control both sides of the bargaining table, and are essentially telling themselves what to do, or like the teenager: Doing whatever they themselves wanted to do anyway (pizza & video games).

This was news to me.  One knows there are certain kinds of slavery going on out there, but I had never heard of this before.

BENJINA, Indonesia (AP) — The Burmese slaves sat on the floor and stared through the rusty bars of their locked cage, hidden on a tiny tropical island thousands of miles from home.

Just a few yards away, other workers loaded cargo ships with slave-caught seafood that clouds the supply networks of major supermarkets, restaurants and even pet stores in the United States.

Here, in the Indonesian island village of Benjina and the surrounding waters, hundreds of trapped men represent one of the most desperate links criss-crossing between companies and countries in the seafood industry. This intricate web of connections separates the fish we eat from the men who catch it, and obscures a brutal truth: Your seafood may come from slaves..

The men The Associated Press spoke to on Benjina were mostly from Myanmar, also known as Burma, one of the poorest countries in the world. They were brought to Indonesia through Thailand and forced to fish. Their catch was shipped back to Thailand, and then entered the global commerce stream.

Tainted fish can wind up in the supply chains of some of America's major grocery stores, such as Kroger, Albertsons and Safeway; the nation's largest retailer, Wal-Mart; and the biggest food distributor, Sysco. It can find its way into the supply chains of some of the most popular brands of canned pet food, including Fancy Feast, Meow Mix and Iams. It can turn up as calamari at fine dining restaurants, as imitation crab in a California sushi roll or as packages of frozen snapper relabeled with store brands that land on our dinner tables.

In a year-long investigation, the AP interviewed more than 40 current and former slaves in Benjina....

Hello all, discovered the forum a few days ago and have been lurking, decided to join in. There doesn't seem to be an introductions thread? I though this looked like the closest thing.

I'm male, 37, living in London, not a scientist, my BA was in English and Drama, background in education. Have been reading a lot about climate change/ocean acidification/mass species die off in the last year or so, this place looked like the discussions were reasonable and realistic, though I inevitably have limitied understanding of the science behind issues like ice melt and so on.

Do I have to type a screen capture and answer questions every time I post, or is it because I'm new? Do all posts have to be OKed by a mod before they go up, or again is it because I'm new?

Environmental sound recordist Chris Watson captures fantastic noises of Antarctica:
What strikes most people when they first arrive in Antarctica is the quiet . "It's so quiet; its the only place in the world that you can actually hear Geology happening; all these processes that you're schooled to think take thousands and thousands of years, the movement of glaciers and the shifting of rocks ... And that's an amazing experience that process of the landscape changing" says Jeff Wilson, a Director on the BBC series Frozen Planet. And the sounds of 'geology happening' are captured in the first of a new series of NATURE by wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson. The sounds of the ice are astonishing; from the huge, powerful grinding and creaking sounds as glaciers calve or ice sheets buckle under pressure, to the delicate sounds of water lapping under thin sheets of sea ice or the tinkling sounds produced when fine needle-like ice crystals move in a breeze of volcanic gases inside an ice cave at the base of Erebus, Antarctica's most active volcano.

With contributions from some the team who worked on the BBC series, Frozen Planet, NATURE presents a journey in sound across this frozen landscape. Whilst above the ice, the landscape is quiet, below the ice the underwater world is full of sound; for example, Orcas (killer whales) use pulses of sound to navigate rather like bats and produce and squeaks and whistles to communicate with one another over vast distances, whilst Weddell seals produce the most hauntingly beautiful ascending and descending tones. Antarctica - frozen landscape, and surprising, mesmerizing, powerful and haunting soundscape.

Hi Lisa,

Others have had some trouble as well, as did I (I just made an exception). I asked Typepad about it and receved the following reply today:

We're actually working on correcting the TypeKey certificate issue
currently, and should have that sorted early this coming week. You can
hold off on adjusting your templates - once our fix is in place, it
should be fine.

In the meantime, you and your readers should be able to proceed by
accepting the certificate and add the exception. That will allow you to
view and make comments.

Problem will be fixed in a few days.

In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. “Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs”.[1]

2. This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her. We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life. This is why the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she “groans in travail” (Rom 8:22). We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth (cf. Gen 2:7); our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters.

Nothing in this world is indifferent to us

A Doctor 'story', I thought this quite cleverly written. (Well I do work for a doctor!)

"Planet Earth sits in the doctor's office nursing a high temperature. "You're very sick," says the doctor.
"I feel fine," says Planet Earth. A hacking cough follows. "Okay, I admit I'm a bit under the weather. I'm working on it. Changing light bulbs and stuff. It will sort itself out."
The doctor studies her notes on the computer screen. "No, it won't sort itself out. The tests are all saying the same thing. You have the worst carbon problem I have seen."

"Don't panic, Doc. I'm definitely aiming for a low carbon future. I just need to make sure it's a smooth transition...............

.....The doctor says: "A political scientist called Charli Carpenter once suggested that Game of Thrones can be seen as an allegory for climate change. In Game of Thrones, there's that army of zombies, the White Walkers, gathering strength in the north. They represent the impending climate disaster that no one takes seriously because everyone else is too busy with their politics."

NOAA's "State of the Climate" report for 2014 came out a little while ago.  Here's an article and a link to the report itself:

Article:
The state of the world’s climate is complex enough that it takes 413 scientists from 58 countries half a year to completely summarize a year’s worth of data.

And 2014 was a doozy.

According to the American Meteorological Society and NOAA’s “State of the Climate in 2014″ report, several markers measuring the earth’s climatic trends set historical records. This is the 25th year that scientists have provided this report, and it was full of hundreds of pages of detailed atmospheric and oceanic summaries of what’s happening to our air, land, and water.

Obama wants the U.S. to build the world's first exascale computer
The White House quietly issued the executive order on supercomputing Wednesday, creating a government-wide program that would seek to better align various government agencies toward achieving key benchmarks in computing power.

A petaflop is a computer with the ability to perform one quadrillion arithmetic operations per second, while an exascale computing system would have the capability to operate at 1,000 petaflops.

High performance computing is increasingly integral to the U.S. economy High performance computing is increasingly integral to the U.S. economy, be it forecasting the weather, simulating global warming, conducting war games or designing and testing nuclear weapons.

In recent years, the U.S. has fallen behind far other nations when it comes to its computing power used for weather forecasting, a fact that was highlighted by the superior performance of the main European weather model in forecasting Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

This year, 2015, is a watershed year for the climate movement. In December governments will converge in Paris where they are expected to forge a new, international climate agreement that is robust, ambitious and comensurate with the scientific imperatives outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. We believe that their ambition has to be driven by a bigger, broader and stronger citizens’ movement.

Faith communities increasingly recognise that the climate crisis is also a moral crisis.

In a blockbuster study released Wednesday in Nature, a team of 38 scientists finds that the planet is home to 3.04 trillion trees, blowing away the previously estimate of 400 billion. That means, the researchers say, that there are 422 trees for every person on Earth.

However, in no way do the researchers consider this good news. The study also finds that there are 46 percent fewer trees on Earth than there were before humans started the lengthy, but recently accelerating, process of deforestation.

This links to the post above.
... If I insinuated that Tony Abbott is dumb, it’s because he is in fact dumb. His own statements on many subjects is testimony to that alone. But any world leader that denies climate change is a dumb and dangerous leader and not just to their own country, but to the world.

Tony Abbott is also a war-monger and just last week was advocating further bombing of Syria. He’s against refugees landing on Australian shores but seems to have no problem driving refugees onto the boats and into Europe. And when one of his countrymen was slain on the battle field, his response was “shit happens.” ...

8 Out of 10 Cats Wrong, Says Professor Richard Tol

Notes: "A form of government interesting to ponerologists is one they have called pathocracy, in which individuals with personality disorders (especially psychopathy) occupy positions of power and influence." Interdisciplinary it is: "As a discipline it makes use of data from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and history..."

From the Book, pg. 199 of 1998 edition: "The following question thus suggests itself: what happens if the network of understandings among psychopaths achieves power in leadership positions with international exposure? This can happen, especially during the later phases of the phenomenon. Goaded by their character, such people thirst for just that even though it would conflict with their own life interest. They do not understand that a catastrophe would ensue. Germs are not aware that they will be burned alive or buried deep in the ground along with the human body whose death they are causing."

What is supposed to keep limbic system under control ? (https://youtu.be/Us-TVg40ExM)
I'll cite james (http://megacancer.com/2015/11/21/permaculture-paradise-not/) w/o check: "Humans evolved a portion of the cortex to partially control the limbic system to allow social, cooperative behaviors. It’s a limbic suppressor and usually I’ll place it in the medial prefrontal cortex."

Make no mistake: Limbos are nothing new, evolutionary stuck (if not going backward) embracing the most any sort of force (direct destruction, thuging, bribing, deception, misinformation...) with which they acquire what they want.
Compare that awkwardness with elegance of minimal force aproach, for example Albatross (https://youtu.be/2KLvy9__xMg) . (https://youtu.be/M_gSydN_BYM)

They inverts meaning of so many terms, example: spying, stealing, thugging, torturing, killing, destroying, crime, war criminal, crime against life (any lifeform including their own) is not that - when *they* do that.
Even what reality means. But nature says NO.
Fasten your belts my friends and say NO to them, there is nothing more real then nature.

Music is everywhere if one care to listen.

In Sweden we've seen wood anemones, cowslips and wild strawberries recently. Today I read about someone who had fresh/new potatoes. That's normally a tradition to eat here around the summer solstice. Maybe they will save some for Christmas and start a new tradition?

The forecasts now says it will be up towards +12°C on Sunday, in large parts of southern Sweden. Heck, that's even warmer than we had in June.

Documenting a vanishing culture, Part 1.

Attempting to post a photo of lake ice, let's see if this computes.  Apparently not. I'll have to upload that first somewhere else. No problem. There's nothing special here. This lake has only a very shallow outlet so here the ice melts almost undisturbed (Lake Littoinen public beach http://www.visitkaarina.fi/littoinen-beach, (http://www.visitkaarina.fi/littoinen-beach) 2016.02.19). I'm guessing the cleared path for long distance ice-skaters (taken 2016.01.23) is likely to have the strongest ice. Still, I wouldn't cross the lake anymore.

The third image is of the community sauna for ice swimmers, 2016.01.23 (the nearest place I could do this). What they've done here they've installed two water pumps constantly circulating the water from the bottom to the surface, though only one is working in the image, this keeps the ice from covering the swimming spot. Additional benefit from this is the eutrophicated lake keeps its oxygen balance way better. No ice swimmers though, the sauna in question gets warmed up four times per week on evenings http://villajarvela.blogspot.fi/p/saunat.html (http://villajarvela.blogspot.fi/p/saunat.html)

4th img: changed my avatar to a photo a friend took of the short rest stop at the pier of Kuoviluoto (Curlew Islet) https://www.facebook.com/Kuoviluoto-151886198213030/ (https://www.facebook.com/Kuoviluoto-151886198213030/) , another large sauna for rent for possible festive activities. They're obviously more of a summer location, and I guess the reservations for an evening in either of these should be made c. half a year in advance. 

The sign on the pier is the new personal message, word by word, to emphasize the difference between english and finnish. I've been to this pier twice in my life before, and can confirm the waters just 1,5m deep here.

summary:

"A lucky shot.

During his evening walk the photographer got within 10 meters of a lynx. The Lynx filmed in Nurmijärvi (ab.18 miles from the centre of Helsinki) was actually protecting her cub hiding near the photographer, by attracting the humans attention.  The deep purrs of the mother lynx were responded by the cub by squeaking noises resembling the noises of puppies missing their mother, said the photographer who accidentally got in between these. "

Normally lynxes do not move much in the early evening dusk, it's possible the mother was relocating with her cub to a better hunting location.

Documenting a vanishing culture part 2.

Happened on a gym class of old style, while visiting the beach yesterday. There's been almost normal temperatures here two past weeks so the soft parts of the lake ice have frozen solid again. The photo of great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) drumming on a dead tree wasn't sharp enough so here some other photos.

1. Kids learning to ski on lake ice, this could be the last year some of them can do this here in the southern Finland. In the late 1970s and early 1980s I hated this stuff.
2. A path cross the ice towards the sauna and the winter-swimming spot. This photo could be from anywhere in Finland from 1700s to 2016, as the people in the country side didn't warm up their saunas on same days, so friendly neigborghs could share the load of keeping clean and warming up the sauna. That this is a modern picture can only be revealed by the fact that here someone has tested free-style skiing on shallow snow.
3. This could be from 1979 when I was on exactly the same spot, jumping on ice testing how strong it really is. The ditch isn't too deep and the parking spot is near so no real risk of death here.
4. Elderly man takes his dog to the forest for a morning walk, possibly thinking the gravel on sidewalks will hurt the feet of his companion.

http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-35825264 (http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-35825264)

The public are being asked to name the UK's new polar research ship.

The £200m, 15,000-tonne, 128m-long vessel is being built at Cammell Laird on Merseyside, and is due to become operational in 2019.

Anyone can propose a suitable name on a special website which will accept ideas up until 16 April.

The new ship will replace the existing polar fleet - the RRS James Clark Ross and RRS Ernest Shackleton - and work in both the Arctic and the Antarctic.

Names that have featured on previous UK research vessels will not be used again. But beyond that restriction, the possibilities are wide.

The Natural Environment Research Council (Nerc), which manages British polar science, says it is looking for something inspirational - something that will exemplify the ship's work.

The chosen name doesn't have to be that of a famous polar scientist; it could just as easily be the name of a place or phenomenon.

For example, the German polar research vessel is called Polarstern, or Pole Star; and the ship used regularly by Australian Antarctic scientists is called Aurora Australis - another name for the Southern Lights.

"Nerc's new ship will help put the UK at the cutting edge of polar research," said council chief executive, Prof Duncan Wingham.

"Built in the North West of England, she will help bring an economic boost to the region and to the UK shipbuilding industry.

"Today we are launching our campaign to bring our ship to the UK people, asking for their help to find her a name that encapsulates her role at the forefront of UK science.

"We are excited to hear what the public have to suggest and we really are open to ideas."
Image copyright NERC
Image caption The ship contract will secure 400-500 jobs at Cammell Laird

The funding of a new British RRS to work in icy seas was announced by Chancellor George Osborne in April 2014, with a contract to build the ship being given to Cammell Laird last year.

Since then, the Merseyside shipbuilder has been going through a detailed design exercise and expects eventually to be employing 400-500 people on the vessel's construction.

The ship will feature a helipad, cranes, onboard labs, and have the ability to deploy subs and other ocean survey and sampling gear.

Some of this equipment will go through an enclosed "moon pool", or "wet porch", inside the vessel.

Dr Robert Larter, a geophysicist working with the British Antarctic Survey, says the ship will have greatly increased scientific capabilities, especially in relation to the importance of the Southern Ocean and the role it plays in Earth's climate system.

"This is an area that has the most powerful ocean currents in the world - the Antarctic Circumpolar Current is the link between all the world's oceans; and the seas around Antarctica are the 'factories' of most of the world's bottom water which drives the over-turn of the oceans. So, there's a lot to learn and this new ship will help us do that," he told BBC News.

I saw this NZ doco yesterday and thought some of you might enjoy seeing it too, the photography is exceptional:
 "Speechless. The Polar Realm", filmed in various polar regions over a number of years:
http://www.richardsidey.com/speechless/ (http://www.richardsidey.com/speechless/)
Very moving, no talking, just a sensitive musical soundtrack. Gave me a real sense of the overwhelming richness & sheer abundance of the wildlife inhabiting the regions. (And yes a deep sadness as to what we can lose)

I find you can download it from Vimeo online there, seems v reasonably priced?
& from a review-
"Perhaps better described as a lush visual poem than a documentary, this meditative exploration of the world's polar regions and their adorable inhabitants features no talking heads and no voiceover, and is all the more dreamlike for it.
Offering up one stunning sight after another (the giant walrus sleepily rolling into the water is a particular highlight), the film is almost unbearably cute at times, but in a good way. As it nears the end of its 45 minute running time, an always-there undercurrent bubbles to the surface, and it climaxes with an SOS call for its melting subject."

Last month must go down as one of the worst ever in the annals of climate change, writes James Dyke, with parts of the Arctic 16C hotter than usual and the 'safe' warming level of 2C breached across the Northern hemisphere. But even worse is the near-total lack of reaction from business, politicians and media.

Conclusion :
We seem unable to understand that we are driving such changes: record breaking changes that will ultimately break our civilisation, and so scatter all that we obsess and care about.

Documenting a vanishing culture, Part 1.
Last century I enjoyed a short ice swim in Jyväskylä. Horrific fun. Swimming to the ice edge and letting the snow blown from across the Jyväsjärvi hit my face. But I didn't dare put off my socks, and so they froze to the planks 1m before I could reach the sauna door...

But it seems this wasn't general folk culture, this ice swimming club just a few experts.

Not sure if anyone here subscribes to cryolist (an email list for sharing information, data, conferences, jobs,  PhDs, etc., related to the cryosphere) but there was a great email sent on it yesterday. A pretty cool data update, but with wonderful humour.
You can find the original here, in the latest batch from April. http://cryolist.org/archives.html (http://cryolist.org/archives.html)

Dear fellow conspirators,

As you may recall from our monthly strategy meetings held in tropical paradises around the world
at the gullible tax-payers' expense, between 1960 – 1995 the USGS pretended to take tens of
thousands of large format photos of glaciers of western North America to provide ‘documentation’
of the impacts of what they and others would later call “climate change” or “global warming”.  Of
course we know these photos were taken in the same studio used to fake the moon landings, but in
their brilliant book “Glacier Ice”, Post and LaChapelle used these photos to successfully dupe
generations of arm-chair scientists, hippies, and do-gooder politicians that glaciers are
beautiful and respond to climate change.  I am glad to report that this elaborate and effective
hoax is about to go digital.

For the past several years we have been scanning the negatives of these photos with
photogrammetric quality.  We have nearly completed all of the vertical images and will soon
release them.  These photos are suitable for reconstructing glacier topography at a time when no
satellites existed, allowing us to fabricate glacier volume change over the past 20-50 years to
further confuse the public and line our pockets with the profits of doing so.

You can find a description for one method I plan to implement for discovering the alleged location
of these photos by following this link: http://fairbanksfodar.com/nagap-photogrammetry-coming-soon (http://fairbanksfodar.com/nagap-photogrammetry-coming-soon)
 For each film roll in the inventory, a similar Google Earth KML file as described there has been
or will be created.  Each roll is organized by date, so by viewing these KML files one can step
back through time to see how these glaciers could have retreated as well as quickly identify which
subsets of photos can be used for photogrammetric surface reconstructions to quantitatively
measure their volume loss by comparing to more recent fabrications of surface elevation such as
from NASA’s Ice Bridge program which uses “lasers” to do the same thing (lol, as if...).  While we
have an overwhelming amount of indisputable misinformation out there already on "climate change"
and its impacts, personally I find repeat photos of glaciers particular convincing and I hope this
35-year time series of high resolution vertical images of valley glaciers will go a long way
towards furthering and reinforcing that cause, as well as be useful to scientists seeking new
means of generating wild claims of increased rates of ice volume loss and sea level rise and the
like.

In the next month or two I hope to have all of the photos geolocated in this way and available
online in full resolution.  These will be accompanied by a data paper describing the methods
involved with this elaborate hoax as well as tips on using these photos to create convincing
reconstructions of surface elevations, which of course I will hide in plain sight in one of the
many peer-reviewed conspiracy journals we support.  The data will include full resolution tiffs
straight from the scanner (~140MB), full resolution jpgs that have been optimized for contrast and
exposure by me for use in photogrammetry or publications (~20MB), preview jpgs suitable for web
viewing, and metadata spreadsheets that describe location, date, etc. for each, at roughly 4TB in
total.  I’ll have my own methods for distributing these online, but if any misinformation centers
are interested in a bulk transfer so that they can profit from their re-distribution, please let
me know, as there’s clearly enough money in this climate change racket to last us all several
lifetimes.  I’d like to thank the National "Science" Foundation, the USGS, and the Al Gore “Let’s
get rich by claiming that thermometers actually work” Campaign for their generous support in this
endeavor.

Keep up the good work!  We've almost got 70% of the US public believing that "global warming" may
not be a ridiculous idea! Lol! The human capacity for self-deception is indeed unlimited...

If I was a betting man I would bet on the following...
1. If internet banking via satellite existed when the titanic ship sank, the owners would have ordered the crew to STFU and instead announce "drinks, food and souvenirs on sale at half price for a limited time only"; Then of course wire the money off ship before sinking.
Would you do that? Of course not. Would they? Of course yes.

2. "They", the ones who make the real decisions, know climate change is real and it's effects will be catastrophic. They just don't want everyone else to know we are sinking. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/planet-oz/2015/aug/06/how-australians-were-ready-to-act-on-climate-science-25-years-ago-and-what-happened-next (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/planet-oz/2015/aug/06/how-australians-were-ready-to-act-on-climate-science-25-years-ago-and-what-happened-next)

3. The society we live in will collapse under the strains of climate change. Not everywhere at once, but bit by bit and place by place.

I do not, yet, have an adequate source of water, food to survive. I'm relying on more time. I have 12,000 liter rainwater capacity. It stopped raining here in February, (2 months too early). The ground is cracked a meter deep (in other fields) and the temperatures are like early June.
I am working full speed to get self-sufficient. I have enough electricity - off-grid PV sorted. But I can't drink electricity.

Do you have water and food sorted?
If you don't, in the future hypothetically speaking of course, would you sell your children into "a better life" for a few liters of water? Children are sold every day in the places which are already sinking. For what? For a few meagre provisions.
Would you buy a child? of course not. Would they? Of course yes.

Send out your SOS. But no-one is able to help. We are all in the same boat (planet earth). I won't bet on martians coming to help us out.

Save Yourself - get your supply of water and food sorted, and if you get these sorted, then get security sorted. And if you don't need it you can leave whatever you set up to your children. I bet they will need it if you don't.

I live in a 35 year old caravan. It was bought, delivered and lived in, within 2 days. You can spend years and all your money building a cement dungeon if you want but I wouldn't drink cement. This allowed me to work sooner on water and food. I am 7 years at it and still not there. An extra 12,000 liter rainwater storage arrives tomorrow. The swales and hugelcultures built last year really help to capture every drop. 
And yes, soil is everything. Everything.

The World Is Getting Fatter and No One Knows How to Stop It
Humanity is putting on weight. Across the globe, in wealthy countries and developing nations, among children and adults, an increasing number of people are overweight or obese. Today, nearly 40 percent of the world’s adults fall into one of those categories, according to new estimates by a global network of researchers called the NCD Risk Factor Collaboration.

Best times to see a seal or the other seal (Siiri and Pullervo, they're called) have been early in the morning and late evening (4-7 Gmt and 17- gmt), Occasionally they've stopped here also in their siesta middle of the day. The researchers wish to be informed if more individuals appear on camera and they've released the identification marks for these two to the public. http://wwf.fi/elainlajit/saimaannorppa/# (http://wwf.fi/elainlajit/saimaannorppa/#)

Have not read this book (yet  ;) ), but the story-line could be apropos of our future....

The Day the Moon Blew Up
The plot of Seveneves gets going when the moon blows up without warning and for no apparent reason. This isn’t a spoiler—it’s the first sentence of the book. “The moon blew up without warning and for no apparent reason.” People figure out that in two years, chunks of the moon will rain down on Earth in a cataclysmic meteor shower, wiping out every living thing and leaving the planet uninhabitable for thousands of years. The world unites on a plan to get as many spacecraft as possible into orbit, where a few select people can ride out this Hard Rain and keep humanity going.

Australia removed from UN world heritage climate report
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-36376226 (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-36376226)
All references to climate change's impact on World Heritage sites in Australia have been removed from a United Nations report.

A draft of the report contained a chapter on the Great Barrier Reef and references to Kakadu and Tasmania.

But Australia's Department of the Environment requested that Unesco scrub these sections from the final version.

A statement from the department said the report could have had an impact on tourism to Australian.

It also said the report's title, Destinations at Risk, had "the potential to cause considerable confusion".

"In particular, the World Heritage Committee had only six months earlier decided not to include the Great Barrier Reef on the in-danger list and commended Australia for the Reef 2050 Plan," the statement said.

"The department was concerned that the framing of the report confused two issues - the world heritage status of the sites and risks arising from climate change and tourism.

We are all witnesses to climate change’s devastating impact on our world. We just have to stop and listen.

It was spring 2004. The air was cool and still, the encroaching dawn light outlined the horizon; and there, in the heart of California’s Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, was Bernie Krause busily setting up his microphone.

The soundscape ecologist recorded the symphony of the forest’s sounds that day: the gurgle of the gushing stream; the melodic birdsong from sparrows and woodpeckers, robins and grosbeaks, towhees and wild turkeys. It was a rich and vibrant recording, a celebration of life and biodiversity.

CO2 in Mauna Loa - going up at an accelerated rate. http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/full.html (http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/full.html)
Global Temperature - going up at an accelerated rate and is lagging behind the CO2 rises so will rise more. http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs_v3/Fig.A2.gif (http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs_v3/Fig.A2.gif)

I conclude society will collapse. I believe it is time that to make sure you and your loved ones will be as safe as possible for as long as possible. If you think self-sufficiency is not important please re-check the 3 pieces of data above. Self-sufficiency takes decades depending on your starting point, available time, wallet.

I won't have posted something from whatsupwiththat ! I am not a specialist but i think it is a denier nest. The first graph you provided show some temperatures down to -9°c, when I started understanding climate change I found a graph like this one where the temps are down to -6°c. In 2014, someone on this forum (certainly AbruptSLR) did post a meta analysis of the data provided to the the IPCC and they were ranging from -3 to -5°c averaging around -4°c. That is something important to me, It helps me choose data with a larger scope, from 0 to 50 million years for example. Unfortunately I can't find it any more. That doesn't change what you are saying thought.

I live close by The Institute for Quantum Computing & The Perimeter Institute. Stephen Hawking and others come here to contribute, study, and instruct. After years attending open lectures I'd guess that the deepest secrets of Cosmology and the discovery and proof of a Grand Unified Theory will be settled before a practical Quantum Computer makes it to the store shelves.

The week began with GreenFaith’s Sacred Earth, Sacred Trust (http://sacredearth2016.org/) on June 12, an interfaith day of celebration of the earth and action on climate change.
"
We Will Celebrate
The earth as sacred; worthy of our respect, awe and veneration.

We Will Reaffirm
That ultimately, we aren´t earth’s owners, but rather her caretakers.

We will Reassert
Our moral responsibility for the well-being, interdependence of all life and show our solidarity with the most vulnerable.

The Merchants' Wheel

Now human means transcend
All human measure
And pile up wealth
To impoverish the heart,

Men trace the heights of fear
The depths of pleasure,
Now human means transcend all
Human measure,

Simply to channel this
Blind wave of treasure
Regardless what bonds
Its bright streams wrench apart.

Now human means
Transcend all human measure
And pile up wealth
To impoverish the heart.

What’s a ‘system of systems’?

It’s a system made of many disparate parts, each of which is a complex system in its own right. The biosphere is a system of systems. But so far, people usually use this buzzword for large human-engineered systems where the different components are made by different organizations, perhaps over a long period of time, with changing and/or incompatible standards.

The Canadian military has investigated a mysterious pinging sound coming from the sea floor in a remote region of the Arctic, officials have told the BBC.

The strange noise is reported by local people to have frightened animals away over the past few months.

A military aircraft conducted various multi-sensor searches in the area, officials said on Friday.

But the military says it is so far unable to explain the cause of the "acoustic anomalies".

Trump subsequently promised, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, to consider retaining aspects of Obama’s signature Affordable Care Act “out of respect” to the outgoing president. During the campaign, Trump had promised to “repeal and replace” the reforms but never explained a replacement in detail, nor its funding. And in a second interview with the CBS programme 60 Minutes, Trump said he would ensure that that people with pre-existing conditions and children living with their parents for an extended period were still covered.

“It’ll be just fine. That’s what I do. I do a good job,” he said. “You know, I mean, I know how to do this stuff. We’re going to repeal it and replace it. And we’re not going to have, like, a two-day period and we’re not going to have a two-year period where there’s nothing. It will be repealed and replaced. I mean, you’ll know. And it’ll be great healthcare for much less money.”

<<

..
Trump biographer Gwenda Blair also said the businessman was “entirely likely” to govern like a moderate Republican. “His pronouncements during the campaign were part of a performer’s strategy of always controlling the headlines by saying something and then topping that and topping that,” she said.

“Twitter was technology’s gift to him in that he could keep leapfrogging ahead of any fact check. He’s a dealmaker who always wants to make it happen to his advantage. The gamble the nation has taken is that it will now work to the nation’s advantage.”

Today I am angry, to the core of my being. Angrier than I remember ever having been. At recent generations for increasingly pillaging this beautiful earth, our only home. At the absolute greed and stupidity of my parents' generation who exponentially increased the destruction and thought us accordingly. At myself especially. At my generation who continued the exponential growth in destruction. At what my generation are now teaching their children.

My brother is angry at me for stopping and wanting to live like a hermit.

My grandfather's favourite saying was "Willful waste makes woeful want". How true.

Yesterday I planted a hundred sprouted acorns and remembered doing so with my grandad.  2 years ago I tried to find them but they had become a shopping centre.

I am so angry at myself for what I have done, at those around me who understand but continue.

And for remaining silent. And for being ineffectual when I do speak.

CO2 doesn't have different effects whether it is caused by a climate change denier or a climate change believer.

I am responsible for previously emitting obscene amounts of CO2. Despite that, I find it increasingly difficult to accept climate change believers who don't reflect upon and alter their own actions - fly, drive, build, eat food from great distances, eat beef etc.

A person I know living near here, fully cognisant of the "Armageddon" that's coming and why, owns a crossbow for self defense and hunting (who has rationalised and accepted cannibalism) is building a large concrete house, thick wooden beams etc. Why? Why have I not asked/confronted him?

When will our stupidity become socially unacceptable?

The Democrats lost the House, the Senate and lost to Donald F'in Trump. Is there any reason why everyone at the DNC shouldn't be fired?

First of all, I love this form and I really like reading everyone's comments. I'm not hyper active on here, but I read the forum daily and I worry for our poor Earth. 

Anyways, the more I think about things and try to tie loose ends together the more I really see and understand the points made in the documentary called Hypernormalism.  It's interesting to see how both Putin and Trump spread lies/misinformation at such a constant and insane rate that people completely lose track of reality and can no longer discern what is real and what isn't.  It's scary how the internet has in many ways isolated people into their own echo chambers where such thoughts are only amplified and the most powerful ones become the talking points.  Anyways, it all makes me sad and every single day I have an existential realization about Trump becoming president.

On a different note I'm happy that I finally got my blog back in action after 11 months of downtime and that I'm slowing doing better with severe depression.

Zvuci dobro (ako si se meni obratio)! Bas smo prije par tjedna sadili jednu marelicu od jednog Bio-Baumschule ovdje u Austriji. Vidit cemo hoce li prezivjeti. Smokva iz Poljicke Republike se dobro vratila nakon lanjske kasne zime pocetkom petog mjeseca, cak I rodila, ali bilo je prekasno da se smokve dobro razviju. Nadam se da ce ona dobro proci ovu zimu i nastavit rast sljedece godine.

Finally, snow, but not the predicted 30 cm.  Still saw over 200 geese and also ducks last two days around the Red River and the Seine in Winnipeg, MB CA but that might be it until March or April when the first few geese return to the Seine. 

Ice finally starting on the Red, especially due to the snow dump after the warmest November here ever.  Please not frazil ice as we can't skate or ski on the river if it does.  Peace out.

Thanks for the heads up re. Jimmy Dore.


Why are we differentiating between Fascism and Predatory Capitalism?
Both are the combining of Big Government with Big Business. Dropping regulations doesn't equate with smaller government, it's simply Big Government complying with the demands of Big Business to the detriment of the populace.


To survive this destruction of our environment we require at a minimum the cooperation of all the world powers. No conflicts, no upheavals, no wars. We can't "Make America Great" at the expense of making others poor. If it's Us against Them, we all go down together.

Climate change is like boxing. A lot of 1, 2's, a few right hooks and then a knock you off your feet blow but you get up, the round finishes. The next round starts, your back on shakier feet and its constant tap, tap, tap, wearing you away...

Here, the drought (started around Jan 1 2016) is constant, it hurts the spring veg etc. Then a super-heatwave in June slaps hard, slam - right hook - no water for 3 weeks in July and it's 38 degrees in the shade. Back to the constant heatwave, slam - closet well runs dry. Jaw punch - bee master was first time unsuccessful in making new bee colonies, so I got scarred and bought 15kg of honey (paid him extra as he had 1/5th normal production and felt he couldn't increase the price - "next year will be normal or great". Punch in the stomach - olive harvest, what I give my all for is very bad. 
Knock down! The rain came. Got 7,000 liters of the precious stuff. Then slowly, I realise I've been knocked down - a semi circle of destruction, 15km radius, runs around me (floods, dead animals, destroyed roads etc, mountains of debris on the beach, tornadoes. Oh god almighty save us. 500 year old olive trees torn apart, braches weighing tons flung around. I still haven't absorbed the violent uncontrolled power of a tornado.
Bell, break. Start cleaning the beach.
Round 2 starting soon...

Anyone who says "we're fucked, we're fucked" and does little to reduce their carbon footprint and little to prepare for being fucked is doing a lot of damage to preventing climate change. People who don't believe climate change exists or that it's that serious have their "not worried" viewpoint confirmed by the lack of action from Gavin Smith's caricature.

Even those who do believe we're fucked are lulled into a false sense of security and inaction by the warmth emanating from these caricatures.

Either STFU or act in accordance with your words.

iveca: 'Cooperation, not competition' is what prevails in nature, for otherwise we wouldn't be here. A-Team:  howdy there, in a better world i would be bringing you a coff
That got cut off, coffee or coffin? Either way, timely and thx. Looking back, I came first here to learn and keep up, share what I had, get ideas on living even more simply, collaborate on topic coverage, help ride with Paul Revere on raising the alarm, but recently have moved on to merely bearing witness for the future, though lately it seems more like writing its obituary.

Bad behavior on the Lusitania and Titanic may not be the best precedent for climate change as 'food insecurity' is hardly encountered on cruise ships, so maybe Uruguayan Flight 571 -- the rugby cannibals of the Andes -- is more what to expect when there is not enough to go around.

There is quite a bit of cooperation with the animals around here. Very few species in the desert can make it on their own, they almost all move in herds or packs or pairs or flocks or coveys like the mule deer, javalinas, harris hawks, brewer sparrows, quail, and mourning doves, sharing food harvest and lookout duties. The birds -- and even the chipmunks -- have learned each other's alarm calls and startle as one organism.

Capitalism of course sees everything through its fogged little lens and has the birds at each other's throats. Yes we have bullies like the curved bill thrasher and predators like the fox and bobcat who aren't set up to eat the roots and berries, the latter requiring taurine at every meal.

But even here predators are doing the rodents a favor by keeping numbers at a level the land can support and helping along with rodent fitness by picking off the others.

Indeed when I was advising on the vertebrate genome projects, one of the first of many culturally unacceptable results was that rodents have thousands more functional genes than humans.

Both genomes are riddled with junk DNA, over a million defective copies of virus-like replicative units; these expand faster than selection can get rid of them, with the pufferfish the only known exception. Our culture chokes though on straightforward science.

Like birds with their more efficient lungs and advanced neurons, mice had sharper vision, far more discriminatory olfaction, keener hearing and indeed overall more highly evolved proteins than humans (whose knees and backs are evidently just works in progress).

And that's thanks to the owl and bobcat for all that natural selection -- the mouse proteome is calculated to be 200 million years in the future on the timescale of human evolution. We're never going to get caught up.

Loki's Castle is another case in point. It's a deep sea vent south of Svalbard, see map corner in a recent post. Our closest living prokaryotic relative still lives in the anaerobic muck there, the Lokiarchaeum branch on the tree of life.

There's not a lot of energy to be gleaned in an autotrophic environment using molecular hydrogen as terminal oxidant with a nickel cofactor catalyst poisoned by early oxygen, but a big breakthrough from the anthropomorphic perspective came from a cooperative symbiosis with a micro-aerobic planktonic marine α-proteobacteria, later to become a  talent-sharing endosymbiont known as the mitochondrion.

And the rest is history: oxidative metabolism, 37 ATP from one glucose molecule instead of 1-2.

This bears a curious parallel to climate change or growth-has-no-limits, in that while the above ignoble origin of multi-cellular eukaryotes such as ourselves has been proven beyond the shadow of a doubt*, there remains a very active pseudo-controversy about it.

The opposition cloaks itself in science-speak but it is religion-driven hostility that postulates that their divine (not yours) sparked the whole very special ascent of man, not bit-by-bit evolution.  (Alternatively, maybe some evolution happened but it was purposive and predestined the natural order which is despotic white libertarian anglo-male rule.)

Monkey trials still go on in the US hinterlands (~ red states on election maps); this antagonism to the inconvenient truth about our lowly origins merely backs up chimps a couple billion years for the devout non-evangelicals.

Go ahead, break your spear on capitalism but it goes back much farther, to when we made up that bit about being given dominion over nature and our bogus separation from it, go forth and multiply, call the other animals 'game', display arrogance in announcing an Anthropocene instead of the Stupidocene.
 
*Phylogenetic analyses at this distance, while giving the correct answer, need independent support as provided by recent gene family studies, notably the selenocysteine insertion system, the non-use of membrane lipid ethers in Loki, ribosomal protein similarities, tetrahydromethanopterin-based one carbon metabolism, RasGTPases and so on.

if more people would spend more time and energy to feel and provide love it instead of superficial distractions that could well make a difference but it's as well a bit abstract in such short words, that would take quite some effort to analyze and then it has to be based on free will and genuine. any attempt to change mainstream ways of people with force ended in disasters.

My knee is also as messed up as it ever has been meaning I will not be able to run for quite some time, which really sucks because that's the only thing in life that gives me joy. Fuck this year already, I tried to be optimistic and it lasted for 19 days and now I'm back to where I was.

I can't wait to see what the most pathetic, incompetent, uneducated, ignorant, racist, anti-internationalism administration does first. AHH so full of rage and anger and there is absolutely zero I can do about any of it. gg America!

Turned on the TV today. Wow. Trump's travel ban is big, isn't it. Or is it?
My wife is Japanese, I'm Irish and we both live in Greece so we are extremely grateful and reliant on being allowed to live here, without persecution. IMHO, however the travel ban and the wall are just distractions.

Deliberate and successful attempts to divert attention from the real action.
What else is he and his chosen few up to? Of course neither the travel ban or wall should happen. But WHAT else are they doing and legislating on?

So Trump is big news isn't he. Or is he?
IMHO he is just a distraction. Is it from the climate and a temporary or permanent blue ocean 'event' that could get us off BAU. No. Why? Cause when it happens 99.9% of people, even if they hear about it, won't care enough to reduce their coffee intake by 1 cup, let alone something drastic like stop flying.

Whether Trump is a deliberate and successful attempt to divert attention or just coincidental is up for discussion. Those with real power are ready for this. So what are those with real power up to? Now is the perfect time to get what you want done. Maybe they want to put the US under martial law? That's too simple an answer, isn't it, and anyway to what ultimate benefit?  So WHAT are those with real power up to?

I'm a simple man and I don't have the answers. So I'm going to try something radical - I'm going to try to have my wife fall in love with me. (again? That too is up for discussion). I'm also going to try to live in mindfulness, aka "in the moment". But that's way more difficult (I think, I hope). If anyone else is interested in the later, I highly recommend eating foraged and home grown food. It really helps to reconnect and break down some barriers.  On 4 and a half times I've even wondered if acorns are psychoactive...

The nearby lake this morning before the possible föhn winds  projected today and tomorrow. Ice looks pretty solid still. Those are not meltponds but patches of ice that are snowless. Lack of snow is notable here in the southwest. I think we topped at c. 10 cm before +degrees melted most of it to ice, currently at 1-2 cm and ice where applicable. The amount of slipped & hospitalized people in the city made it to national news earlier this year. This is somewhat notable for Finland.

Föhn-event wasn't too strong here today. Maybe some 6K up from yesterdays numbers.

Photo of very shallow melt-pooling.

Additional photos of the public beach, you could even swim there.or maybe not. The passenger traffic and the occasional high water keep it open on mild winters. Ice induced erosion happens on rather a small scale compared to some photos of Alaska/Siberian north

Today walked the short river path (~1.5mi.) and back home. This is though a somewhat controlled river so these two images aren't 'entirely natural'. Still some features occurring also in free-flowing rivers can be seen. Southfacing northbank has lost almost all snow and the meltwater has started to gnaw the northern shore of the riverside. As this has been quite dry start of the winter the water levels are low, this leads the ice to be lowest in the middle of the river and the meltwater gathers there on the other pic.
Title: Ocean Ranger, in memoriam

In memory of the 84 men of the Ocean Ranger.
All hands were lost when the rig capsized
in a terrible winter storm 270km east of Newfoundland
35 years ago today,
15 February 1982.

http://www.heritage.nf.ca/articles/economy/ocean-ranger.php (http://www.heritage.nf.ca/articles/economy/ocean-ranger.php)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocean_Ranger (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocean_Ranger)

I remember it like yesterday. We were living in Twillingate on the NE coast of the Rock, and the wind that night howled like I'd never heard it before, a living screaming gale from the west. So odd, because our worst winds are nearly always nor-easterlies. We woke to find everything buried in huge drifts and the prospect of a day shovelling out, as everything was closed. But it was all put aside when we turned on the news. Everyone spent that terrible day glued to the TV in trembling disbelief. Newfoundland is tight-knit: the tragedy affected dozens of communities in the province. Everyone knew someone who had lost someone.

These days I prefer the company of people who are unaware of or don't care enough to speak about AGW and what we are doing to this planet.
I don't have patience anymore when I hear someone mention these things again and again but do nothing to reduce their contribution.
Reducing our own contribution is so easy and opens so many new and exciting doors.
It's heartbreaking to me that the people living near me who currently contribute the most to destroying this planet are the ones who speak most often about it.

Couldn't resist after reading above about the topology of a glove.

The sleeping bag, a poem.

On the outside grows the furside; on the inside grows the skinside.
So the furside is the outside, and the skinside is the inside.
One side likes the skinside inside, and the furside on the outside.
Others like the skinside outside, and the furside on the inside.
If you turn the skinside outside, thinking you will side with that side,
then the soft side, furside's inside, which, some argue, is the wrong side.
If you turn the furside outside, as, you say, it grows on that side,
then your outside's next the skinside, which for comfort's not the right side.
For the skinside is the cold side, and your outside's not your warm side.
And two cold sides side by side are not right-side when side to side!
If you decide to side with that side, turn the topside furside inside.
Then the cold side furside skinside's, beyond all question, inside out!

and one more quote, from H2G2 I believe  ;)

Arthur cleared his throat, and then did it again.

''Where,'' he said, ''did you ...?''

''Find a gin and tonic?'' said Ford brightly. ''I found a small lake
that  thought  it  was  a gin and tonic, and jumped in and out of
that. At least, I think it thought it was a gin and tonic.''

''I may,'' he added with a grin which  would  have  sent  sane  men
scampering into trees, ''have been imagining it.''

He waited for a reaction from Arthur, but Arthur knew better than that.

With left action expressed as right action and averaged, and with "." standing for inner product: E(a,b) = -a.b
 ?
If so, then our physical space might have some spinorial properties. Isn't it exciting?

Riverside after the rains which melted most of the snow. The extra water helped the small rapid clear its downstream off ice which stack on top and under the still stuck ice.
More to the downstream, water flows on top of ice.

Ice-related story: dramatic rescue of the crew of a sealing vessel out of Summerford,  Newfoundland, which ran into trouble in high winds and heavy ice-infested seas NE of St John's on Sunday. This was a first-time real-life rescue for the crew of the chopper, which was ably flown by one Captain Nicole Lively. :D

Check out the video in the story.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/summerford-skipper-safe-at-home-after-rescue-at-sea-1.4011611 (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/summerford-skipper-safe-at-home-after-rescue-at-sea-1.4011611)

This is the time of year when Newfoundlanders have traditionally taken to the ice around our shores to harvest seals---harp seals, which whelp on the pack ice that drifts down from the Arctic on the Labrador Current. The hunt is not what it used to be, in the wake of animal rights campaigning, and nowadays no whitecoats are taken, but sealing is still an important economic contributor to many Newfoundland households. The entire animal in used, the carcase and hide, in traditional Newfoundland culture.

And yes. I miss A-Team too.

Those of you, like me, who think your days of getting up into the high latitudes may be over, or who have never been where it really is cold, might find this novel pretty damn good.

It is Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow or Smilla's Sense of Snow (Danish: Frøken Smillas fornemmelse for sne). A 1992 novel by Danish author Peter Høeg. It was translated into English by Tiina Nunnally (credited as "F. David" in the British edition).

Read all about it at:-

The author knows his subject.

Mind you, these are of fresh ice melting in-place. If the river wasn't controlled that would have left for sea alredy. The lake instead is rather natural wrt ice. Tried to record sound of ice cracking but something went wrong. Nice to hear spring is progresaing, though. I haven't visited Baltic shore since the latest imges so don't know what's up in there.

I think a pretty good imitation cn be achieved by taking a trayful of ice cubes, go to  really quiet place, record it. Then apply various legnths of echo to individual cracks...up to 4 secs, and amp up something like tenfold... I had to stop the recording early since akid asked her mother something 40 meters away. Possibly cannot try again this spring it's in the low 50s F here today

That I can confirm that the harbour is free of ice.

Apparently, after Leonardo DiCaprio had to travel half the World in order to find proper snow for ”The Revenant”, Hollywood has decided to follow up on the cold theme and engaged an arch crook to play the leading role in a new Arctic drama (see http://deadline.com/2017/04/mads-mikkelsen-arctic-armory-films-1202071899/ (http://deadline.com/2017/04/mads-mikkelsen-arctic-armory-films-1202071899/) ). He will face the choice of either staying in the Arctic or flee towards lower latitudes, when the shit hits the fan. It will be interesting to see what the directors wants him to do in order to keep the audiences happy.

For all the science deniers and scientist critics on this site:

Read this. Read it again. Then read it again.

YES! I second this comment, a hundred times over.

Also, people REALLY need to learn to separate their ideas from their personal identity. For example, I would be shocked to learn that climate change isn't real, but I wouldn't be DISAPPOINTED. The *idea* is not part of who *I* am.

This is also why I wish we wouldn't call people climate deniers. By identifying *who* someone is according to their ideas, you obviously are conflating their ideas with their personal identity. And then you call it/them a piece of crap. I wonder why they become so resistant to change???
     "This is also why I wish we wouldn't call people climate deniers"

True. On the other hand if we would call them what they really are (i.e. "willfully obtuse scientifically illiterate morons") doesn't sound any better. At least 'science deniers' gives them the benefit of the doubt about all the other areas of their lives.

Yes. Yes. Yes!

Anger, there's been a lot of late.
I analyse my anger to know who *I* am.
It can take days or weeks (sometimes never) of sniffing around it, asking it's true source to understand really why I became angry. Once understood the remnants of that anger vanishes. I cannot speak for anyone else but I have been angry, so fxxking angry, for the needless consumption and waste which leads to the destruction of this planet. Eventually I understood I was angry at myself for not doing what I could do to stop my contribution.
Anger. It's my mirror.
I would cry with joy if AGW was untrue. I would not regret the choices I have made (unfortunately only recently) to reduce my contribution to AGW. Those choices have led to happiness, spirituality and peace.

Good read, Ugo Bardi, here (https://cassandralegacy.blogspot.lu/2017/05/make-anthill-great-again-ant-colony-and.html):

But the human colony doesn't have a brain, it can react to external stimuli but it can't plan ahead. Those large human colonies called "states" don't show an intelligent behavior; not more than ant colonies do. States explore their environment, compete for resources, occasionally fight each other, at times very destructively. But these are behaviors that ant colonies engage in as well.

Dictators, kings, emperors, and the like are normally just as clueless about the system they are supposed to manage as their subject.

Three ground-mounted cameras, plus two UAVs.

But you've got to share about the UAVs. UAVs? To look back down at the ground and see the shadow crossing beneath?

How the Arctic Ocean became saline (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/06/170606112753.htm)

Researchers model climate changes caused by the submersion of the Greenland-Scotland Ridge

Date:June 6, 2017
Source:Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research
Summary:The Arctic Ocean was once a gigantic freshwater lake. Only after the land bridge between Greenland and Scotland had submerged far enough did vast quantities of salt water pour in from the Atlantic.

The Arctic Ocean was once a gigantic freshwater lake. Only after the land bridge between Greenland and Scotland had submerged far enough did vast quantities of salt water pour in from the Atlantic. With the help of a climate model, researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute have demonstrated how this process took place, allowing us for the first time to understand more accurately how Atlantic circulation, as we know it today came about. The results of the study have now been published in the journal Nature Communications.

Every year, ca. 3,300 cubic kilometres of fresh water flows into the Arctic Ocean. This is equivalent to ten percent of the total volume of water that all the world's rivers transport to the oceans per year. In the warm and humid climate of the Eocene (ca. 56 to 34 million years ago), the inflow of freshwater was probably even greater. However, in contrast to today, during that geological period there was no exchange of water with other oceans. The influx of saline Atlantic and Pacific water, which today finds its way into the Arctic Ocean from the Pacific via the Bering Strait and from the North Atlantic via the Greenland-Scotland Ridge, wasn't possible -- the region that is today completely submerged was above the sea at that time.
...
But did the "Arctic Really Great Lake" ever freeze? (from Wikipedia):
Climate
The Eocene Epoch contained a wide variety of different climate conditions that includes the warmest climate in the Cenozoic Era and ends in an icehouse climate. The evolution of the Eocene climate began with warming after the end of the Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) at 56 million years ago to a maximum during the Eocene Optimum at around 49 million years ago. During this period of time, little to no ice was present on Earth with a smaller difference in temperature from the equator to the poles. Following the maximum was a descent into an icehouse climate from the Eocene Optimum to the Eocene-Oligocene transition at 34 million years ago. During this decrease ice began to reappear at the poles, and the Eocene-Oligocene transition is the period of time where the Antarctic ice sheet began to rapidly expand.

But when did it go from freshwater "Lake" to salty "Ocean"?   The Middle Eocene Arctic was dominated by freshwater (from Early to middle Eocene history of the Arctic Ocean from Nd-Sr isotopes in fossil fish debris, Lomonosov Ridge (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/2008PA001685/full), 2009), although
Evidence of intermittent exchange between the Arctic and adjacent oceans is also preserved in the deeper water (Nd) isotope signature of the fish debris, although limited connections during the Eocene probably restricted this exchange. We conclude that an active year-round Arctic hydrologic cycle, along with eustatic and tectonic controls on oceanic exchange, must have exerted significant control on the evolution of Eocene Arctic Ocean water column structure and the isotopic composition of early and middle Eocene fish debris reported on here.

Re IJIS thread - why is polluted with non IJIS related speculation?

Re contrarian betting :
Big boys make seriously big money betting contrarianingly. They only bet contrarianingly when they have insider info or they themselves helped manufacture the wild swing to one side of true value. They never bet unknowingly.
Small boys who bet contrarianingly on the wild hope of getting rich loose their shirt long before they wipe their arses with 100$ bills.
If most of the mpst knowledgeable people on this forum are very fearful for the state of the ice in September, better not to risk betting that we'll be running adventure marathons to the pole...

Climate scientists seeking opinion of stupid idiot to complete study

OTTAWA – Scientists are nearing completion on another planet-wide study on climate change, but say they require the opinion of a “real stupid idiot” in order to complete their work.

“We’ve spent months conducting research and analyzing the data,” explained Dr. Naomi Prashad. “So we’re nearly there. We just need the assistance of a total brow-furrowing goddamn dolt to point out any shortcomings in our work.”

The Jimmy Dore Show was in a bit of a slump recently, with Dore incessantly ranting about the same things (and cursing even more than usual). His ego played up a little as well. And it was less funny. It has to be funny, that's crucial. Not just for the viewers, but also for Dore's team, because it's really difficult to do things if you don't get some fun or satisfaction out of it.

I've been watching some videos from the past days, and it's really good stuff again.

Presentation of the Dialogue:
http://press.vatican.va/content/salastampa/en/bollettino/pubblico/2017/10/27/171027a.html
Representatives of the Church and high level European political leaders will participate in the Dialogue, to contribute to a constructive reflection on the fundamental challenges for the European project.
...
• Climate change and the resulting need to change our non-sustainable lifestyle in the medium term. Connected to this is also the problem of the costs of ecological change and their distribution.
...
this event is not a “classic congress”, but rather a dialogue; following an introductory discussion on the topics listed by Pope Francis in his speech at the award of the Charlemagne Prize:
• “Integration” (with fractures and lacerations both within and between EU Member States);
• “Dialogue” has been typical of our western democracies;
• “Capacity to generate” (what form of economic model we will need in the future).

** i forgot this (my bolds):

" But we believe that EU citizens, with their different experiences, their different expectations and with their rich and diverse capacities, should be brought back to the centre of “Project Europe” and be able to be its agents."

Pope Francis was presented with the keys to a brand-new Lamborghini Huracan on Wednesday by officials from the luxury car maker.

The special edition car, however, will be auctioned off by Sotheby's in London and the proceeds given to four charities in Pope Francis' name.

Pope Francis blessed the car and signed the hood after receiving it in front of his Casa Santa Marta residence.

Sporting the papal colors - white with yellow-gold detailing - the Lamborghini Huracan's base price usually start at 183,000 euros but the specially-made papal car should bring far more at auction.

Beginning at ~27 minutes in he explaines to Americans how Europeans, and in fact most of the world, are treated by employers thanks to governmental regulations. Almost as an aside he speaks of his experience with French healthcare professionals. It was almost an aside, or charts pointing to increased longevity, live birth statistics, or other successes would have been included in the medical segment.

Thanks so much Bruce,
I dont always reply to your posts, but I do read them voraciously. Your interactions with animals, friends/customers, and itinerant Mexicans borders on the inspirational. Who could imagined pigs so lovingly raised that when their world caught fire they didn't panic, but waited patiently for their expected rescuer.


I spent the evening exchanging gifts and dinner with a small, but eclectic group.
A Serbian lass mourning the destruction of her culture. A Tasmanian student intent on becoming a Canadian citizen, or at least joining Canadian Mensa. A Polish lady who still hates Germany for what it did to her country, but who writes an entertainment column in a german language newspaper. Her daughter and son in law who make mainstream movies, but despair of the covert political messages they contain. An octogenarian, now reduced to catching and releasing female octogenarians when in season in Las Vegas, and of course my wonderful wife of 29 years.


The banter touched on the difference between Truth and Fact, and why Trump should be exalted or exiled. We explored the We vs Them concept and reached a rare consensus, that the problem predated our sapien ancestors and couldn't be solved, but that it could be sapiently modified and sanely mollified if sensibly approached.
We vilified America, Canada, Britain, and most of the Western World. I wasn't alone in praising Putin, an oddity in these times, but was backed to the wall in my defense of the FSM. Our lone Baptist faced similar obstacles against a plethora of atheists.


For hour after hour the BS, food, drink and gifts were examined, consumed, and shared. Everyone had moments when they shined, and everyone enjoyed the resultant glow that lit up our evening.


I'm beyond the passions that drove my youth. As striving for success, to succeed, even for secure subsistence, fade in the rear view mirror something new waits take their place.
To be entertaining, even as I'm entertained, isn't a lofty goal. But it's where I am. I've evolved into a bit of a raconteur, and it's enough. The days of Fighting the Man and Rallying the Troops is past.


A pleasant dinner surrounded by friends, an occasional appreciative glance or comment. These now are my raison d'etre, it's sufficient.
