Arctic sea ice / Re: "Stupid" Questions :o

March 17th, 2019:  (note: I had to put the images in different posts because they were too big to go all at the same time.  I tried and it did not work.  Also, the peninsula is flipped because I can't get any arctic view images for the 14th and 15th and had to use geographic view).

Does anyone know what the source of the smoke on the Kamchatka peninsula was on March 15th and 16th?  Was it a volcano?   

It does not appear to be man made.  There is soot on the snow in a nearby location on the 14th, then smoke plumes on the 15th and 16th, then soot on the snow where the smoke plumes were on the 17th.

Another Independent Journalist Exposes U.S. News Venezuela Propaganda w/Eva Bartlett

35 minutes review. now 506,000 subscribers - added 8,000 in less than a week.

Let venezuela handle its own country. #handsoffvenezuala #fomentingdiscord

Thank you for giving Eva so much air time. She is one of the few honest journalists left. Do not trust your government!

Damn lefty reporters with their facts and such.

"I have certain rules I live by. My first rule, I don't believe anything the government tells me. Nothing. ZERO!" -George Carlin

"well who did the attack on Venezuela's electrical grid? Right, it wasn't like yeah it might be a
worn down grid and they have been told they have power outages and they fix them in two hours, they fix them but the whole grid was down and it was attacked repeatedly and stations were physically attacked. So this is not a case of infrastructure failing. This is a premeditated attack that I know max Blumenthal has written about. The fact that this was already detailed years prior that the U.S. saw this as a way to put even more pressure on the population in Venezuela in order to turn against the government. "

Many frackers behave like farmers, except that the “crop cycle” appears to be longer, perhaps two years. These firms will borrow or sell equity one year and then drill for sixteen to twenty-four months. Production will surge two years later and then, as many authorities have noted, fall off rapidly.

I've always seen fracking as a temporary measure. Fracking is not sustainable in any way. It is not profitable in the long term, there isn't enough of it and the more we frack the more we will poison our own water and turn our rock foundation to sand. Fracking will not lead to global economic prosperity, even if it didn't cause climate change.

Fracking is fundamentally flawed.
Archmid is of course correct.
The way that fracking makes sense economically to so many people and to such a large extent in Canada and America really illustrates how fundamentally flawed our economic system is.
Unsustainable ( economically and environmentally and socially) though fracking is, it has become dominant in our petroleum production.
David Hughes has been showing us that fracking makes no sense since it started to take over from conventional production in 2005.
It is fruitless, although interesting, to speculate where we would be now had petroleum production really peaked in 2005 instead of this insane Red Queen style performance we are witnessing at the expense of our planet.
Please excuse the rant. This is important. Until we can say "NO!" to increasing oil and gas production, there is no hope for us.

JAXA ARCTIC EXTENT : 14,017,283 km2(March 17, 2019

- Extent is 7th lowest in the satellite record,
- Extent loss on this day 76k, 61 k more than the average loss of 15k on this day.
- Extent loss from maximum 254k, 149 k (142%) greater than average of 105k,
- On average 1.1% of the melting season done, with 180 days to average date of minimum (13 September)

The Perils of Projections.
Average remaining melt would give a minimum of 4.24 million km2, 4th lowest in the satellite record.

Other Stuff
GFS indicates that overall the Arctic temperature anomaly will vary from -0 degrees to +2.5 over the next 10 days.

"No man can serve two Masters."

Nor two Nations. They either serve one or the other.

It's a clinical choice they make to serve one and betray the other.

The excuses and the illogical immoral rationalisations makes no difference.

Ilhan Omar is spot on about the 'blind allegiances' to Israel and it's mega wealthy supporters in the USA, UK etc. Pretending and lying about that doesn't change the facts. 

All Laws and all Politics is about "morals and ethics" ... or the lack thereof. The Media and Politicians do pick sides. No point denying it nor "shooting the messenger" like they did MLK et al. Unless you're on the wrong side.

This is central Alaska, but it demonstrates the warmth that they are dealing with this year.
