Climate System Tipping Points from Cascading Feedbacks: 1 of 2
https://youtu.be/PsktCO8vvBo
One global truth: the only constant is change. In the case of the climate system, this change is massive far-reaching abrupt change, highly nonlinear, much faster than expected, highly exponential in many cases, full of unexpected surprises, leaving no part of Earth untouched. In this video (and next) I chat on a new study that makes a stab at a) identifying elements in the Earth system that are changing, b) identifying drivers that cause these changes, and c) identifying feedbacks and interconnections between changing elements and processes.

Crappy Weather From Stuck Jet Streams: 2 of 2
https://youtu.be/HBqmI8HRzLc
From top-down, big-picture thinking on the climate system, it is clear that when Arctic temperatures increase much faster than lower latitude temperatures the jet streams must slow down and become wavier; in fact I have discussed this since 2010. Peer-reviewed science is finally catching up. In this video (plus next), I chat on jet streams (planetary waves; Rossby waves) get stuck in place, with large ridges and troughs, causing extreme weather events via Quasi-Resonant Amplification.

Greenhouse gases from fossil fuel emissions continue to rise rapidly in our atmosphere, causing our rapid climate change crisis. In this video (and last), I show how the amounts of these gases varies with altitude. Sensors onboard satellites measure gases like CH4, CO2, water vapour, and ozone at 100 different altitudes ranging from the Earth surface to the upper stratosphere and beyond.

How does anyone keep up with the plethora of articles, reports, papers, news reports, data sources, big picture, complex, fast-paced world, let alone that dealing with our ongoing, yet undeclared, climate system EMERGENCY?? For example, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) yearly policy Conference of Parties 24th year (COP24) is winding down in Katowice, Poland while simultaneously 20,000 to 30,000 Earth scientists are giving paper after paper talks and posters on our rapidly destabilizing Earth System.

Our Climate in 2030 to Most-Closely Resemble Climate of 3 Million Years Ago
https://youtu.be/KFM2H_MmeZU
Our fossil fuel emissions have changed the chemistry of our atmosphere and oceans, propelling us to a much warmer world. How fast? How warm? What are the consequences? Following business as usual (IPCC RCP8.5 scenario) our climate in ONLY 12 years (by 2030) will most closely resemble climate in the mid-Pliocene period of 3 million years ago (1.8 to 3.6 C warmer than preindustrial, around 400 ppm). Then, by 2150 our climate will most closely resemble the climate in the Eocene of 50 million years ago (13 C warmer than late 20th century, 1400 ppm CO2). I do independent research to connect the dots on our overall global rapidly changing climate system. My only funding is from your donations, so please help out at http://paulbeckwith.net and give me topics you want to see covered in new videos. Thanks for paying attention.

Global Methane Rise Literally Off-the-Charts: 2 of 2
https://youtu.be/cLEKWaZnvC8
The unrelenting increase in global levels of atmospheric methane went literally off-the-charts used to display methane for the Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS). Methane levels were so high that they swamped out the colour scheme used in the map legend, causing saturation in large red blobs with little detail. The colour legend was shifted by 100 ppb to more clearly show the detailed structure of where methane was being emitted. I strive to maintain scientific independence so that I can always present you with the total unvarnished truth about our rapidly changing climate system and the dangers that we face.

Methane levels are rapidly increasing globally. Methane release in the Arctic from thawing terrestrial and marine permafrost, and from methane clathrates on shallow continental shelves are a huge and ever increasing risk. I compare and contrast methane observations from satellites (Copernicus and MetOp1) and from ground flask measurements to see what is happening now. I chat about the colour legend change for the Copernicus data, which was offset by 100 ppb, and what that means, and why.

Deal With Climate Depression Using Neuropsychology
https://youtu.be/66mDd_J_VQU
With a basic knowledge of your brain, you can use your Mind to change your Brain to change your Mind. Neurons that Fire together Wire together, according to neuroscientist Hanson. Using an easy method (acronym HEAL) Hanson explains “taking in the good” to build inner strengths into people’s psyches. This is NOT “positive thinking” which is problematic; but it is a quick way to enrich and install positive experiences and rewire brain circuits (create synapses, overwrite others, create new neural pathways) to build up inner strengths.

HEAL’ing Your Despairing Climate Change Brain
https://youtu.be/B7TxIAERgGM
Cutting edge brain science clearly demonstrates that our Mind can Change Our Brains Physically, which then changes our minds in a cyclic pattern. Clearly, we can use these HEAL techniques to improve our ability to deal emotionally and psychologically with the horrors coming at us, fast and furious, from abruptly changing climate system science. As developed by neuroscientist Rick Hanson, the “Taking in the Good” technique to rewire your brains neural network is the following: H - Have a positive experience. E - Enrich the experience in your thoughts. A - Absorb the experience in your mind. L - Link the +ve with a negative experience.

Rapid climate change can really wear us down. Just when you think system changes cannot possibly worsen, they do; the rate of climate mayhem notches up another level or three. How do WE avoid a spiral down into despair? Fortunately, we can learn a simple method to HEAL; to “Take in the Good” and Hardwire our Brains for Happiness. Neuropsychologist Rick Hanson’s book, TED video, and online stuff gives a practical method for YOU to use, based scientifically on the latest neuroscience, to obtain peace of mind, contentment, and love.

Climate Driven Hell in Paradise California: 2 of 2
https://youtu.be/ha9QdQ2Fs4Y
Paradise, a city of 27,000 people in California is no more. A wildfire on steroids, a veritable tsunami of flames, cremated people in their homes, workplaces and vehicles. Drought sucked moisture out of the air, and strong Santa Ana and Diablo winds reaching above hurricane force fanned hellish flames and gave people virtually no time to escape. The vagaries of the fire, as I explain, torched structures and cars while leaving some trees virtually untouched. Nutter conspiracy theories of energy beams, chemtrail spraying, and HAARP, etc. are dismantled in my chat.

Climate Change Cremation Consequences: Paradise Lost
https://youtu.be/I1QCEOFxS9E
As people age they tend to think about their own mortality more, and plan their final exit, whether it be cremation or burial. Many people in Paradise, California had no such choice. They were essentially cremated inside their houses, workplaces, and cars from horrific fires that essentially wiped the city from the face of the Earth. At filming time, about 1300 people are missing, and I fear that many of these men, woman, and children have been reduced to ashes, never to be seen again. Consequences of abrupt climate change are inarguably horrendous. We must halt denial insanity; please support http://paulbeckwith.net

Mini-Tsunami in Flooded Quarry, and Cement Chat
https://youtu.be/e8YZt5EwrrY
About a week ago, in this water filled quarry in Quebec, a rock wall collapsed, generating a tsunami that crossed the lake, picking up sand and rocks from the lake floor and casting them on the far shoreline. There was some damage to docks, etc; the amazing thing was that a submerged airplane in 25 feet of water was moved several feet by the force of the wave. Not sure if the sunken submarine at 60 feet depth was moved. My 16yr old son had four scuba dives here this weekend, to successfully complete his scuba certification. I hiked around the site and chat about ideas to make cement limestone from CO2 that is captured from the atmosphere; this has great potential scalability.

Global Circulation Tipping Points in the Atmosphere and Oceans
https://youtu.be/iZ8kDVxP18M
Presently, global average temperature is rising 0.25C per decade. However nonlinear, tipping points can greatly increase this rate of warming. Atmospheric circulation (jetstreams) and ocean circulation (currents like the AMOC, or Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation) can switch state behaviour and quickly rocket us up to a much different, chaotic world. In this video, the second of two parts, I chat about the risks of these tipping points being triggered.

More on Abrupt Cryospheric Tipping Points in the Climate System

Computer modelling simulations of climate change have a very difficult time accounting for abrupt, nonlinear state changes, also known as tipping points. Since IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reports, including the recent IPCC1.5 report rely too much on computer models, they tend to understate the urgency and emergency state of ongoing abrupt climate change.

Nonlinear Tornado Damage With Rapid Climate Change
https://youtu.be/mhRfGXiIQQg
We can build new houses to withstand an EF2 tornado by spending an extra $150 to simply strap down the roof with horizontal nails attaching ties between walls and roof beams. So simple and cheap. Wind drag force on a house scales to wind velocity squared; wind power scales to velocity cubed. Thus, below a certain wind speed there is almost no damage; slightly above that threshold there is catastrophic damage. Highly nonlinear process. This video is the last of four on the science, dynamics, and consequences of tornado swarms that will become more frequent in northern states and Canada.

Will Tornado Alley Shift Northward Into Canada?

Supercells are huge collections of stormclouds bunched together, with rotation. They often generate tornados, as happened recently in Ottawa, and a few days later, in Detroit. As rapid climate change proceeds, and the speed, waviness, location, and nature of jet streams changes, it is possible that “Tornado Alley” in the US will shift northward, and impact northern states and Canada greatly.

What Happened Inside the EF3 Tornado Hitting Ottawa?
https://youtu.be/lRgXqYXSuYA
An EF3 tornado razed the town of Dunrobin and moved into Ottawa crossing the river hitting Gatineau; it had winds up to 265 km/h (1 km/h faster is EF4). The forward speed of the cold front generating Supercell clusters and tornados was 80 km/h, thus rotation speed of the tornado was 185 km/h (for CCW rotation, the right front quadrant was 185+80=265 km/h while the left front quadrant was 185-80=105 km/h). Air pressure inside funnels drops as much as 60%; a 1 km wide funnel moving forward at 80 km/h crosses a point on the ground in 45 seconds. For more science, see my blog http://paulbeckwith.net

Our Changing World; A Tornado Outbreak in Canada
https://youtu.be/UpzkfZMHJpA
After an outbreak of 6 tornadoes in Ontario and Quebec on Friday September 21, 2018 there have been many questions. In Ontario, there was an EF1 near Calabogie, an EF3 that destroyed much of Dunrobin, then tracked through Ottawa and went across the Ottawa River to damage Gatineau in Quebec, and an EF2 in the southern part of Ottawa. There were 3 additional tornadoes in northern regions of Quebec. Is this a freak of nature or part of a worrying new trend?

The Arctic Blue-Ocean-Event (BOE). When? Then What?
https://youtu.be/E-QfKjOzfFg
We are hurtling towards the Blue Ocean Event (BOE) in the Arctic. Nobody knows for sure when it will happen. From my analysis, which I discuss in this video, my best guess is that the BOE will happen in 2022. There will be essentially NO sea ice in the Arctic Ocean for a few weeks to a month in September, 2022. After this BOE happens, then what will follow in subsequent years? I think that by BOE+2 years the Arctic Ocean will be ice free for August, September, and October. By BOE+4 years it will be ice free for 5 months, and by BOE+10 years the Arctic Ocean will be free of sea ice year round. During this decade of gut-wrenching transition, our climate and weather patterns will be profoundly disrupted, chaotic, and unstable, for example presenting enormous risks to our global food supply. I am not paid by anybody for my work analyzing and producing these videos.

Typhoon 台风 Mangkhut Savages 中国 China, Hong Kong, and the Philippines
https://youtu.be/mmfT9h-N0lA
Typhoon 台风 Mangkhat. Buildings were rolled over onto other buildings. Massive trees were uprooted. Construction cranes were toppled over. Seawater surged into the city streets, and the storm surge broke into the lobby’s of buildings. Skyscrapers lost their external panels, and swayed for several hours. As catastrophic as this typhoon 台风 damage was to Hong Kong and southern 中国 China and the Philippines, the western media was focused instead on Hurricane Florence dumping trillions of gallons of water on North Carolina, and refusing to leave. These massive Superstorms, simultaneously striking heavily populated regions on opposite sides of the planet are not freaks of nature. They are children of abrupt 气候变化 Climate Change, and those children are growing and getting stronger all the time. Watch out. Denying 气候变化 climate change is criminal, in my opinion, as abrupt changes accelerate around our planet. We cannot trust our lives to rich old white men who dominate the corridors of power.

Typhoon 台风 Mangkhut hits Philippines, Hong Kong on way to 中国 China
https://youtu.be/rmelgn2gpro
By all measures, Typhoon 台风 Mangkhut is a monster storm. While the eyes of the West have been preoccupied with Hurricane Florence, a much larger and more powerful storm razed the northern Philippines, is causing large damage now in Hong Kong, and is heading to 中国 China. In my last two videos I examined, in great detail, the latest science on Superstorms, and here I show you specifically how Typhoon 台风 Mangkhut is further evidence that abrupt 气候变化 climate change has made our planet a very dangerous place. As bad as these storms have been, the consequences to cities could have been much worse. Last year, if Hurricane Irma had not veered at the last minute, it would have razed Miami and the east coast of Florida, causing a trillion dollars of damage. If Florence was a bit further north it would be dumping its multi-trillion gallons of water on the major cities of the eastern USA like Washington, Boston, Philadelphia.

Science of Superstorms: Sea-surface Temperatures over 26.5 C. Warm water to Depth. Not much wind shear. More water vapour in atmosphere to turbocharge storms. Wavy jet stream ridges constrain direction of storms. Lack of steering winds allow storm to be almost stationary allowing deluges and 5 feet of rain in places. Water on land surface fuels hurricane (brown ocean effect), so it takes a long time over land to lose strength. All this and more is discussed. Please support my videos at http://paulbeckwith.net

The Science of Today’s Superstorms: 1 of 3
https://youtu.be/e1-GXEq7Ll4
The West is focused on the massive deluge from Hurricane Florence drowning North Carolina, with big threats to people living amongst the stinky pig manure pools, coal ash piles left over from power plants, and toxic Superfund sites (witches brews of carcinogens). Meanwhile, a much larger (double size of Florence) more intense (Category 5) hydraulic buzz-saw of a hurricane just razed the top of the Philippines and entered the very hot waters of the South China Sea heading directly for over 120 million people living near the Pearl River Delta in China. Just another day on Earth with an effed-up climate. Please donate at http://paulbeckwith.net to support my videos. Cheers:)

Jet Stream Center-of-Rotation to Shift 17 degrees Southward from North Pole to Greenland with Arcti
https://youtu.be/bFme3C9e-cs
When all the sea-ice in the Arctic has vanished from melt and transport, what will happen? This so-called Blue-Ocean-Event (BOE) in the Arctic will mean that the last bastion of ice and coldness in the Arctic will be Greenland. Thus, instead of the Center-of-Coldness or Centroid (I name it ColdTroid) being near the North Pole, as it has been in human history it will be centred over the middle of Greenland, and thus be at about 73 degrees N latitude. Thus, to first-order simplicity, one can expect the jet streams to shift their center of rotation 17 degrees from the North Pole where they are now towards Greenland. This jet stream shift, causing a decoupling from Earth’s axis of rotation, obviously has profound consequences for our global weather patterns and climate system and human civilization, and plants and animals, and, for example our ability to grow food. But hey; humans will at least be able to drill and mine the Arctic, at least those of us that are left.

Further Dynamics of Arctic Sea Ice Loss
https://youtu.be/pRslbZr1jl0
Following up on my previous 2 videos, the mechanisms for ice loss (surface melt, edge melt, bottom melt, export out Fram Strait, Nares Strait, Canadian Archipelago) are in flux. Understanding the dynamics of the melt is necessary to get a better educated guess on when the first total ice loss (blue ocean event) will occur, how long it will last, and how it will precondition the Arctic Ocean for subsequent years. I make use of Zack Labe’s excellent Arctic Sea Ice graphics to explain to you many of the dynamics of Arctic Sea ice Loss. Stay tuned for 1 more ice video.

Patterns of Arctic Sea-Ice Loss: Melt versus Export
https://youtu.be/ExDVultlDuI
Following up on my previous video, the summer melting characteristics for Arctic Sea-Ice are definitely changing. Melt occurs on 1)the top of the ice (air temperature above freezing, melt ponds, water within/between ice crystals, and ash/dirt in ice lower albedo), 2)the edge of the ice (wave action fracturing, water mixing, turbulence), 3)the bottom of the ice (water above freezing, fresh water lens, warmer salty water below). Also, ice is exported out a)the Fram Strait (less now as ice retreats), b)to the Atlantic north of Svalbard, c)out the Nares Strait (more now) and d)out the Canadian Archipelago channels (more now; no ridged ice left to block it).

Arctic Sea Ice Melt Patterns and Analysis
https://youtu.be/CmapHdTOR1k
It appears that Arctic Sea-Ice will hang on for another year, as the melt season draws to a close for 2018. No blue-ocean event this year. However, the nature of the melt is definitely changing, and we can discern patterns in the melt from year to year. For example, at minimum-sea ice extent in Sept., 2014 there was still relatively thick ice (multi-year, and/or ridged ice) north of the Canadian Archipelago, but it pretty much vanished by the subsequent melt season. All that’s been left in September’s since then is ice less than a meter thick, apart from some 2 meter ice hanging on near the archipelago islands. What’s next? When? Why?

Quality of Life drops as Climate Change hits Home
https://youtu.be/l8aeIbQzXfw
Where I live, it has been too hot and too humid this summer. Quality of life has degraded. Ongoing climate system change is hitting my home, and is likely in-your-face as well this year; please comment on your own situation. I chat about heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, and monsoonal like torrential rains that are worsening as Arctic sea-ice degrades. What about human responses. Scientists are very worried but lack power. Politics is divisive. As climate change causes more and more migration, governments become more and more populist and nationalistic and also deny climate change. What can we do??

Earth Climate System: Tipping Points to Hothouse?

I follow up on my previous video and discuss climate system tipping points that are examined in the recent European paper that is on possible Earth Trajectories to a Hothouse. These tipping points, if (or when) crossed, will certainly mean that the Paris agreement threshold of 2 degrees Celsius will not likely be enough to stabilize climate. We have to do so much more, starting off by immediately declaring a global climate change emergency.

Earth Climate System: Terrible Trajectories to Hothouse
https://youtu.be/-dpEHWY0mRw
Ten years ago Timothy Lenton spearheaded a scientific paper examining expert assessments on the types and likelihoods of Tipping Elements in the Climate System. A number of top European climate scientists published an update a few days ago, to get a handle on the risk of cascading climate feedbacks propelling the Earth into a hothouse state. They suggest that we are on that path now, and have a decade or two to avoid the worst. I fear that we have already gone over that cliff, and I declare a global climate change emergency to claw back up the rock face to attempt to regain system stability, or face an untenable calamity of biblical proportions.

The Shocking Reality of Plastics in the Ocean
https://youtu.be/wPfTxfTyaNg
A funny thing happened on my way to school today. As I passed the Museum of Nature I happened upon an “Ocean Plastics Lab” outside the front, and it was free. After browsing all the excellent exhibits and absorbing all the information, I decided to film this somewhat CLUNKY video to get you up-to-date on: seven main types of plastic, macro- and micro-plastics, how much gets into the oceans, where it goes, how it harms marine life, how it breaks down into nano-plastics and gets inside plankton which are the base of the food chain; and what can we do about this problem. Banning single-use straws and plastic bags is not the answer; much more needs to be done. Thanks for watching and sharing! Info is good; presentation is a bit clunky!

Most Mammals Endure Heat Waves Better Than Humans
https://youtu.be/ECOeAUVc2H4
Yes, humans are mammals. Animals. We tend to forget. Out of all the mammals, our human body core temperature average of about 37 C (98.6 F) is almost the lowest, only beating out Elephants. Cats and Dogs have core body temperatures about 39 C, while Chickens are in the range of 40.6 C to 43 C. This means that other mammals are able to withstand wetbulb temperatures higher that the 35 C (95 F) limit for humans. As for the Elephants, things are not looking so good for humans as these wetbulb temperatures are likely to be exceeded in more and more places around the planet in the near future, mostly near the equator, as abrupt climate change proceeds.

Human Core Body Temperature Limits Adaptability to Heat Stress
https://youtu.be/rzscnQqCAiM
Many people think that as global temperatures and humidity rises the human body will physically adapt to the new conditions. FALSE. Since human core body temperature is 37 C (98.6 F), with skin temperature a few degrees lower (35 C, 95 F) when air temperature reaches 35 C and humidity is 100% (known as wet-bulb temperature) the body no longer loses heat to the environment. Even at rest, the 100 Watts of metabolic heat produced by an adult human thus builds up in the body, raising core body temperature leading to heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and death. Other mammals, and birds have higher core body temperatures than humans, and thus may fare better.

Human Body Limit to Heat Stress from Abrupt Climate Change
https://youtu.be/LKAAn0Iy2wY
The average persons core body temperature is 98.6 F (37 C). Human skin is a few degrees colder, being about 35 C (95 F). Heat travels from hot regions to cold regions, according to the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Thus when the wet-bulb temperature, which is the temperature at 100% humidity, reaches 35 C (95 C) the human body can no longer shed heat (sweat no longer evaporates), thus core body temperature rises, and the healthiest person, sitting in the shade, dies in about 6 hours. The rest of us (young, old, medicated, out-of shape, obese, etc...) are SOL at even lower wet-bulb temperatures. Adaptation would require living inside with AC, living in caves, or wearing cooled suits; who wants to do that??

Uninhabitable Regions with Extreme Heat and Humidity
https://youtu.be/uQwLz7oVBfw
At 35 degrees Celsius (95 F) and 100% humidity (at 100% humidity this temperature is called the wet-bulb temperature) the human body is unable to cool itself by sweating, since the sweat will not evaporate from the skin. As a result, the body core temperature rises, heat exhaustion and then heatstroke sets in. A physically healthy person sitting in the shade, in a well ventilated area, is dead in 6 hours. Higher temperatures, and correspondingly lower humidity do the same thing. The very young, old, people on medication, etc. succumb to less extreme temperatures and humidity. This video expands upon my last video, which explains how many regions around the planet are reaching these uninhabitable conditions.

Unrelenting Heat and Humidity will soon make regions UNINHABITABLE
https://youtu.be/dEKcbdciAF0
How hot can it actually get? What is in store for us? When you combine the heat domes sitting over many countries with high humidity, many areas around the planet will soon reach the deadly 35 C (95 F) 100% humidity (wet bulb temperature) or equivalent situation whereby a perfectly healthy person outside, in a well ventilated area, in the shade will die from the heat in 6 hours. Most people, like the very young, the elderly, and the rest of us won’t last anywhere as long, at even lower temperatures. I discuss the latest peer-reviewed science on how parts of high-risk regions in the North China Plains, Middle East, and South Asia will soon be rendered uninhabitable by combined heat and humidity.

Antarctica Under Abrupt Climate Change
https://youtu.be/tHAIQydhhb0
The majority of land masses are in the northern hemisphere, along with the majority of human populations. However, we can never forget the Southern Hemisphere, and the enormous mass of ice that sits on Antarctica. With Arctic Temperature Amplification, mostly from an increase in absorbed sunlight due to darkening from snow and ice decline, more heat travels from the equator to the Southern Hemisphere, with important consequences to air and water circulation around Antarctica. It is vital to understand how an Arctic Blue Ocean situation will impact glacier mass in Antarctica, and thus sea-level rise. Extreme weather events around the entire globe are notching up in frequency, severity, and duration, as well as changing location, and many people are surprised that this is also happening in the Southern Hemisphere.

Arctic Blue Ocean Event Consequences: Air and Ocean Circulation Changes
https://youtu.be/i-wvtVoiA3c
It is becoming common knowledge that we are rapidly heading to complete loss of Arctic sea-ice. Without a course reversal, one eventually gets where one is headed. What will the consequences be, to the Arctic and to the rest of the planet. Using my three cats as willing(?) helpers, I attempt to explain how the Beaufort Gyre and TransArctic Drift will reverse, monsoonal torrential rains will attack permafrost on land along Arctic coastlines, with severe increases in methane and carbon dioxide releases from this big thaw. Our world will rapidly change for the worse as Arctic feedbacks accelerate and the jet streams stall out. We will have to relearn how to grow food in new ways and regions as existing farmland becomes subject to droughts and/or switches to torrential rains. Buckle your seatbelts.

Monsoonal Patterns Start Dominating Jet Stream Circulation
https://youtu.be/O7uQ868HC9A
Abrupt climate change is hitting humanity over the head with a big mallet this summer. The root cause is Arctic warming at much faster rates than equatorial warming, and the result is a mangled jet stream. With a slower, wavy, fractured jet stream losing its domination of weather patterns, topography like elevation changes and land/water borders are taking over, making our global weather patterns more monsoonal-like, even in the Arctic as I describe in detail in previous videos. Human health, vegetation, including crops, and everything else is severely being degraded by rapid climate change, necessitating declaration of a global climate emergency with a proportionate, global response, as if our survival depends on it. Because it does. Please donate at http://paulbeckwith.net to support these videos. Sincerely, Paul.

If you think that this years heatwaves are brutal, be thankful that we are not in an El Niño, which would have added even more heat to our atmosphere, thanks to energy release from the oceans. Building on my previous two videos, I show you we have lost all Arctic Sea Ice thicker than 2 meters, and what’s left is being churned upped by a strong cyclone, and undergoing rapid melt, with almost 2 months left to go in the melt season.

Arctic Monsoons: A New Climate Nightmare

Please help me wake up mainstream media. We have a climate EMERGENCY on our hands. Extensive, long duration heat waves, caused by a stuck jet-stream are roasting people in heatwaves around the globe. People living in the far north, in countries extending up north of the Arctic Circle are enduring unprecedented heat, wildfires, drought, and torrential rains and of course have no air conditioning; why would they. With the land super-hot for days on end, convective lifting (hot air rises) lowers air pressure at the surface, drawing in moisture filled ocean air, leading to buildup of Arctic Monsoons, yet another “unexpected” surprise.

Methane: Consequence and Accelerant for Abrupt Climate Change
https://youtu.be/C3irArpE_FU
Abrupt climate change, specifically Arctic Temperature Amplification is rapidly taking us on a collision course to an ice-free Arctic, and is threatening to turn vast stores of carbon in thawing permafrost and sea-floor sediments into methane and carbon dioxide, further increasing warming in a vicious cascade of feedback loops. In this ongoing series on methane, I discuss details of methane release on land, under the oceans, and chat about how it changes climate. Natural sources are emitting more methane with warming.

Arctic Methane and Abrupt Climate Change

As Abrupt Climate Change continues it’s accelerating nonlinearity, feedbacks cascade into more feedbacks. A huge wildcard continues to be methane release from the Arctic as we approach and pass beyond a “blue Arctic” event with zero sea-ice. When there is no ice in the Arctic Ocean to keep temperatures near the freezing point, latent heat processes cease and temperatures of the sea and air skyrocket upward exposing huge methane risks.

Abrupt Climate Change wreaks havoc many different ways in different places. A cacophony of adverse conditions is occurring in Japan. Very hot sea-surface temperatures create high air humidity; winds directed by a stuck jet stream bring this moisture over Japan; it rises up over mountainous terrain, condenses into storm clouds, with long-duration torrential rains for days, saturating and lubricating the soils, making them much heavier so they move downhill in massive landslides, inundating and levelling villages causing mass fatalities.

Along with the negative effects of heatwaves on people, like heat exhaustion leading to heatstrokes and even death, there are less well known consequences.

The Nitty-Gritty on Global Methane Sources
https://youtu.be/DohxDlNQ3wE
Since 2007, methane concentration in the atmosphere has increased year-to-year. Some years the bulk of this increase is from the poles; in other years it seems to be from the equator and subtropics (either Northern or Southern Hemisphere). I ponder these patterns, and what it means. We can get info on the source of methane increases by looking at the carbon-13 isotope levels within the CH4 molecule. As the Arctic darkens from exponential loss of sea-ice and spring snow cover, the risks of large episodic bursts of methane increase.

A cyclone wreaks death and destruction on delta, with death toll estimates of 15,000, then 2,000,000, settling on 500,000. We will never know for sure, since most bodies were washed out to sea. We will blame the cyclone, ocean temperatures, jet streams, Arctic temperature amplification, or people for living in harms way. But we never blame overpopulation. We rarely acknowledge exponential population growth stressing resources and crowding people into tiny regions prone to catastrophe. We must come to grips with overpopulation.
