I found that the Nasa did try to use past datas to assess climate change :

If that can help.

Anyone think the PIOMAS November release could happen tonight/Tuesday? Someone said it could be much slower than the extent refreeze. I'm curious to see the extent/volume development, as it has been very strange this year compared to all 21st century years.

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/

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

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.

Robert Jensen on "Coping with the Cascading Crises of Our World"


As Baldwin put it so poignantly in that same 1962 essay, “Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

It’s time to get apocalyptic, or get out of the way.

Thanks for spreading the word about this Clare. Looking forward to getting my MP4.

Warming world could make it harder for planes to take off
http://news.sciencemag.org/climate/2014/11/warming-world-could-make-it-harder-planes-take
Alhough it seems counter-intuitive, humid air is also less dense than dry air, which only adds to the problem in our warming world.

I think this fits here better than elsewhere on the forum : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CXRaTnKDXA&app=desktop

What I do not know whether this is a start on some fictional drama tv-series on climate change or something else.

With 4.5°c in average, we are on our way to melt completely the Antartic and everything else...not 70 meters of SLR but more...much more...

"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:
Quote
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.

Quote
"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."
