Consequences / Where have all the Insects gone?
« on: May 18, 2017, 12:08:16 AM »
long time passing...

well a very disturbing paper found in science magazine.
I'm beting on neo-nicotinides, but Im sure climate changes must also be
having some effect.

The rest / But, but, but PUTIN...
« on: April 09, 2017, 12:07:27 AM »
Putin is turning into one of the most influential people in the world.  This has implications for economy, environment, peace.

So far he has invaded Georgia (twice .. Abkhazia and South Ossetia)

Ukraine (twice .. crimea and ukraine proper)
   (to see what's going on:;38.102529296874984&zoom=8)

Moldova (once .. Transnistria)

Syria (ongoing)

and threatening the Baltics, Poland and Germany from Kaliningrad (annexed at the end of WW2 with the entire population expelled/murdered/replaced)

He is quite happy with global warming as he sees it as a positive for Russia.

His environmental policies however have not been visible to many (including me) and hopefully this forum will provide information about what he is doing.

Arctic sea ice / Arctic Ice affected by the Jet Stream
« on: August 29, 2016, 11:39:21 PM »
I check a web site almost daily to observe the current northern jet streams:

I have noticed that there is some correlation between extreme jet stream deviations and the weather in the arctic.

As a pure amateur, i wonder if someone has studied this?

Arctic background / Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment
« on: September 07, 2015, 04:17:20 PM »
Climate change in the Arctic and Boreal region is unfolding faster than anywhere else on Earth, resulting in reduced Arctic sea ice, thawing of permafrost soils, decomposition of long- frozen organic matter, widespread changes to lakes, rivers, coastlines, and alterations of ecosystem structure and function. NASA's Terrestrial Ecology Program is conducting a major field campaign, the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE), in Alaska and western Canada, for 8 to 10 years, starting in 2015.


research is not all just academic.  for us in our chairs watching the world go by are in contrast with those on the front lines giving us the data that is so important.

Arctic background / arctic sea route ship accidents

A diesel tanker has been holed in the northern sea route.. what remediation does Russia have for a large oil leak in artic waters.....

Arctic sea ice / Effect of snow cover on thickness of arctic ice
« on: March 17, 2013, 05:08:39 PM »
A posting on another thread led me to wonder if the later open sea in the arctic has led to a deeper snow cover on the ice, leading to thinner ice formation during the winter.

Here is the latest snow depth:

I know from experience on lake nipissing that when there is low snow cover (as it was this year) trucks and cars are out on the ice earlier and the ice is thicker and takes longer to melt out.

Consequences / Caves point to thawing of Siberia

Just a 1.5 C increase in temperature will  have significant thawing effects in Siberia
