With John Kerry Pick, Biden Selects a ‘Climate Envoy’ With Stature

When John Kerry served as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state, he helped steer the negotiation of the Paris Agreement, locking down commitments from nearly 200 nations — including his own — to begin to reverse the dangerous warming of the planet.

Now his diplomatic task may be even tougher.

On Monday, president-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. said he intended to name Mr. Kerry his special presidential envoy for climate, a cabinet-level position in the new administration. In that role, Mr. Kerry will need to persuade skeptical global leaders, burned by the Trump administration’s hostility toward climate science, that the United States is prepared to resume its leadership role — and will stay the course, regardless of the Biden administration’s future.

Slew of rapidly intensifying hurricanes portends trouble in a warming world
Ten storms rapidly intensified this Atlantic season, some to a record degree

It all started with Hurricane Hanna, which swirled in from the Gulf of Mexico to Padre Island, Tex., on July 25. Originally forecast to move into South Texas as a tropical storm, with the biggest threat being heavy rainfall, the storm instead intensified quickly, becoming a strong Category 1 hurricane just before landfall.

Forecasters didn’t know it at the time, but Hanna offered a preview of what was to come during the record-setting and destructive 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, as storm after storm underwent a process known to meteorologists as “rapid intensification,” in which storms gain strength extremely fast. This is an especially dangerous process when it occurs close to land, coming too suddenly for coastal residents to escape an exponentially potent storm.

The technical definition of rapid intensification is when a storm’s maximum sustained winds increase by at least 35 mph in 24 hours. This season, storm after storm outperformed this baseline. This includes Hurricane Iota, which intensified at the astonishing rate of 80 mph in 24 hours, before slamming into the coast of northeastern Nicaragua late Monday night.

Hi Gero & Juan

You can kill me for this, but just wondering if there is any possibility the choice of colour schemes for key individual years could be harmonised on the Jaxa extent graphs ?

E.g. I was looking at what's ahead on Gero's extent graph and saw the big green dip ahead. My eyesight on phone isnt great and thought it was 2012 and only when zoomed in I realised Juan uses green for 2012 and Gero uses green for 2016.

If this is too problematic, it doesnt matter but thought it would be useful to have one or two key years the same colour.

Btw thanks for all your timely updates. I am one of the many who check in every day.  :)

Hi Niall.

There is no problem with your question.

I use the graph capabilities that ADS VISHOP give us on their chart when you select the 2000-2020 years view. I change the colors a little, but not too much. By example, I change 2016 to orange, because I do not like the yellow that they used. I highlight some years to have a better view and I work the graph with Paint, just to give a closer look of the chart and to save some data space on the Forum server.

Other than that, I try to avoid too many changes, because I repeat this work every night and because on the melting season, the Forum users look to have the information as soon as possible.

On the other hand, I do not know how the ADS VISHOP standard in a couple of months will be, when they start including 2021.

So, I prefer to keep the colors that I use now.

Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2020/2021 freezing season
« on: November 01, 2020, 05:30:31 AM »
I've no idea how the unprecedented current anomaly will play out but it is a good stand-in for a tipping point and imminent climate emergency -- and the experts are certainly taking it that way. It is definitely the biggest thing we've seen since the 2007 minimum and GAAC 2012.

The forum event response?  Apathy, tl;dr, bury the message, copy/paste the same old same old like it was 2013. And this is a very interested micro-demographic! It seems wake-up calls don't wake anybody any more ... if so, climate chaos won't end with a bang but a brain-fog whimper.

I am so shocked by what has happened, that I am not doing anything! But in a way, I feel that, even that I should do something on this Forum, the strongest action should be focus on the general public, on people that are not aware of what it’s happening in the Arctic.

On the following days, 2019 is going to have several increases of more than 200K km2. As a result, on October 27th, the year 2016 starts having the lead as the lowest on record.

For 2020 to have a difference of less than one million km2 versus 2016, 2020 needs to have an average increase of more than 112.5K km2 until August October 27.

Will 2020 have this average increase? If it does not have it, then on August October 27th, the year 2020 will be more than one million km2 lower than any other year on record.

Colorado Fire Grows By Over 100,000 Acres In 1 Day, Hits Rocky Mountain National Park
https://www.npr.org/2020/10/22/926838887/colorado-fire-grows-by-over-100-000-acres-in-1-day-hits-rocky-mountain-national-

Already battling the largest fire in state history, Colorado is now dealing with another blaze that grew by more than 100,000 acres in a day.


The new figure is bigger...

Colorado wildfire grows by at least 140,000 acres in a day, forcing hundreds to flee

A dire wildfire crisis is unfolding in Colorado after a blaze exploded sixfold in size in just 24 hours, growing to about 170,000 acres on Thursday evening. The East Troublesome Fire, burning in Grand County and extending now into Rocky Mountain National Park, forced hundreds to quickly evacuate from Grand Lake and Granby overnight, with more evacuations taking place Thursday and an unknown number of structures reportedly destroyed.

The blaze has all the hallmarks of climate change. It’s burning at an elevation of 9,000 feet at a time of year when snow should be falling. The fire is also raging during a severe drought, aggravated by record heat, through stands of trees killed or weakened by a bark beetle infestation.

The East Troublesome Fire is now the second-largest wildfire in Colorado history. Three of the state’s five largest wildfires on record have now occurred in 2020. The largest, the Cameron Peak Fire, is still burning just west of Fort Collins.

P.S. If 2020 does not have an average daily increase of 106K km2 from tomorrow to October 27th, then 2020 will have a million [or more] km2 less than any other year since 1979 (on October 27th).
