    It has not been a couple of years of bad leadership over this issue, it has been decades of bad leadership on this issue. Scientists claim that we are looking at around a 12 year window where we must drop our carbon emissions by 50% or the damage will be irreversible, so a wait and see approach is not wise at all.

    those darn crazy Brits
    Majority of Britons believe climate-change could end human race: poll
    2 Min Read
    LONDON (Reuters) - A majority of Britons believe that climate-change could end the human race, a poll showed on Wednesday after days of high-profile protests by activists thrust global warming onto the political agenda.

    FILE PHOTO: Protesters block traffic outside The Bank of England during the Extinction Rebellion protest in London, Britain April 25, 2019. REUTERS/Simon Dawson
    Extinction Rebellion disrupted London with 11 days of protests that it cast as the biggest act of civil disobedience in recent British history.

    The group set up camps which blocked off major roads in the capital, disrupted transport and targeted major institutions such as Goldman Sachs and Shell.

    Following the protests, 54 percent of adults agreed that climate-change threatens our extinction as a species, a poll by Comres found, compared to just a quarter who disagreed.

    However, only 22 percent of the 2,037 people surveyed said they supported the aims and tactics of Extinction Rebellion, with 32 percent in disagreement.

    “While most of the public are agreed on the problem and its cause, the poll finds the public less enthusiastic about how Extinction Rebellion is bringing its message to the country,” ComRes Chairman Andrew Hawkins said.

    “Its aims and tactics are far more likely to appeal to people under 25, so it is little surprise that the Group’s warning message of human extinction has less resonance with older age groups.”

    Extinction Rebellion wants non-violent civil disobedience to force governments to cut carbon emissions and avert a climate crisis it says will bring starvation and social collapse.

    The group has demanded the government declare a climate emergency and to allocate resources to tackling the issue.

    A majority of those surveyed said that they would forego at least one overseas trip a year for the sake of the climate, while fewer people agreed that they would be more willing to protest about higher fuel prices than climate-change.

    ComRes conducted the survey between April 26-28.

    Poster 1: I disagree, because you’re not taking X into consideration

    Poster 2: Can you expand further on your point?

    Poster 3: You should probably know that leading experts state the opposite of what you’re saying.

    OP: Doubles down declaring original post as fact

    Poster 1: Perhaps you should read XYZ, here’s a link

    Poster 2: Your reply did not answer my question and I’m still confused, can you expand on X?

    OP: You guys love to attack people that disagree with you, I’m being persecuted and I’m leaving, insert snide comment.

    Our solution so far to climate change is to build a wall in the desert to keep out desperate economic refugees fleeing a changing climate and the loss of arable farmland.

    What's funny is that science is giving us the tools to avoid climate change. Solar panels, windmill power, electric vehicles, etc. All improving but could use a lot more money for research and development.

    But if you say that we should legislate for things like this to be further researched, and tax credits for their use, and money spent on the infrastructure (e.g., plans like the Green New Deal), then "that's just too much and everyone needs to chill out, science has this under control, no need to freak the fuck out and pretend this is an extinction level issue."

    So basically, the only thing science can provide to satisfy the "science has it under control" folks is a god damn negative emissions carbon dioxide vacuum.

    And scientists better find a way to develop this without any government funding because that funding is needed to subsidize the fossil fuel industry.

    Literally posted that it’s happening.
    I just think we are going to find a way out of this whether it’s cleaner technology or a combination of that and finding a way to counteract the negative impacts we have had over the last two centuries. Everyone can continue acting like I’m some enemy when I am just an optimist. It’s not like I’m going out of my way to resist lifestyle changes to help.

    I just think and am pointing out that people are making it such a devisive issue that it isn’t helping anyone who isn’t educated to want to jump on our bandwagon. It’s the same as everything else I think is silly right now which is we should stop attacking people and tend to the garden we can reach in our own lives. Set an example and vote to reflect your priorities but stop pissing the people off that you want on your side who are voting against the people on our side of the issue just to spite us.

    I am glad there are a lot of intelligent people on this board but they have shown they don’t know how to think like or be empathetic to people who aren’t intelligent. i just keep reiteratating that and the ‘intellectuals’ around here continue their charge of condescension.

    Attention Louisiana climate deniers: Insurers say climate change now biggest risk
    Posted May 12, 2019
    [​IMG]
    The area in red is what the state of Louisiana says it could lose by 2067 due largely to high rates of emissions.

    7.4k shares
    By Bob Marshall, columnist

    History is full of moments when communities facing an existential challenge have two fates.

    They are saved by courageous leaders who ignore personal risks to show the way. Or they become examples of disastrous, life-ending choices.

    Climate change has clearly placed Louisiana at one of those crisis points. But, so far, we have chosen that second course and are barreling toward disaster just a few decades away.

    The evidence of this failure was captured in two headlines from last week’s news:

    Louisiana’s GOP congressmen approve pulling U.S. out of Paris Climate Accords.

    Climate change jumps to biggest risk for insurers.

    By now anyone living from Baton Rouge to the coast who’s read the state’s 2017 Coastal Master Plan – the game plan for keeping our bottom third livable — knows what climate change has in store for us in the next 40 years. (If you haven’t read it yet, I assume you’re just here on a visit – a short one.)

    To recap: Even if we get the estimated $92 billion and build all the projects on time, we’ll lose at least another 1,200 square miles of our coastal zone, and maybe as much as 2,800 square miles – by 2067.

    If it’s the latter, worst-case scenario, then almost every community south of Interstate10 – including areas around Lake Charles, Morgan City, Houma, Mandeville and Madisonville – could be under water or surrounded by it before children born today reach their 40s.

    And the plan says the difference between terrible and unlivable relies on the world dramatically reducing emissions over the next 12 to 20 years.

    That happens to be what the Paris Climate Accord is all about. In 2015 the world’s nations – including big polluters like China, India, Russia and the United States – agreed to cut their emissions to help achieve this goal.

    But President Donald Trump has decided to pull us out because that self-proclaimed “very stable genius” thinks he knows more about climate than 97 percent of the world’s climatologists.

    Which brings us to that first headline.

    Last week the U.S. House voted on the “Climate Action Now” bill, a resolution to keep this nation in those Paris accords so we can address the major cause of accelerating sea level rise. That’s the problem Louisiana’s own scientists say could flood much of the state below I-10 in the next four decades. By the way, our largely GOP state Legislature approved that coastal master plan unanimously.

    Well, House Resolution 9 passed Congress, but only three GOP reps showed the courage to break with Trump: Vern Buchanan (Fla.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.).

    Meanwhile, none of Louisiana’s five GOP House members voted to keep us in the accord.

    Steve Scalise, whose district includes parishes that have already suffered the most land loss and could be basically be submerged by 2067 without emissions controls according to the state’s projections, voted “No.”

    He was joined in that opinion by Garret Graves, of Baton Rouge, who certainly knows the risks, since he led the state’s coastal plan for several years.

    Tagging along with “No” were Clay Higgins and Mike Johnson.

    Ralph Abraham didn’t vote “No” because he didn’t vote at all.

    The only support Louisiana got for joining the fight to prevent coastal parishes from being flooded came from Cedric Richmond, of New Orleans. You could argue Richmond is the most unselfish of our House members from the coast because his district is the only one in the state’s projections not flooded in 2067 by future sea level rise – thanks to those new levees.

    The often-cited reason by those “No” voters has been the expected cost to the oil and gas industry of reducing emissions. Cutting back on the use of fossil fuels – the major component of greenhouse gases — would reduce the number of people needed to work for BP, Shell, Chevron and the others. In fact, politicians opposing emission regulations have told me they are simply following the wishes of their constituents in this petro state.

    Of course, this is where courage and leadership come in. Do you tell your constituents what they want to hear – denying the science, fantasizing about future cures, pointing to straw men – just to save your job, even though you know it will lead to certain disaster?

    Or do you tell them the truth, that delaying action could make it impossible for their children to live here – and could well ruin them financially in the near future.

    Which brings us to that second headline:

    Climate change jumps to biggest risk for insurers.

    That chilling headline is the one community leaders and policy makers have been dreading for some time. And these quotes from that story won’t make them feel any better:

    "Climate change took the biggest jump this year of I believe any risk that I can remember, seeing it jump from 7 percent up to 22 percent," said, Max Rudolph, fellow of the Society of Actuaries and author of the report.

    Rudolph added that it's becoming harder for risk managers to avoid thinking about climate change. He pointed to major hurricanes in 2017 and the longer, more intense wildfire seasons we're seeing in the west.

    "My personal opinion is that this is a case of the risk managers catching up to the actual risk that is out there," he explained.

    Risk, of course, is the major factor that determines insurance rates.

    And insurance rates can go a long way to determining how affordable an area is to live and work in. And that, in turn, can determine why businesses decide to move into an area — or leave it for a safer, more affordable location.

    This isn’t a future problem, it’s already happening.

    Last week the Houston Chronicle featured this report:

    Study: Sea level rise causes Texas coastal homeowners to lose millions in potential property value.

    And it’s not just Texas:

    Climate change is ruining home values in these 20 East Coast cities.

    Finally, the journal Science researched what the current and projected impacts of climate change would cost each state’s GDP – and Louisiana was 6th worst, at $21.7 billion before the end of the century.

    So, what do you think this means to future business opportunities, mortgage rates and all other costs of living in south Louisiana — an area this state already admits is one of the riskiest places to climate change impacts in North America?

    You don’t have to be a stable genius to figure this one out.

    We know the only easy way to reduce the enormous risk this area faces to its very livability is for the nation to quickly begin looking for ways to reduce emissions.

    And since that requires political action, the GOP politicians you send to Washington need to show just a little leadership and courage on climate change legislation.

    If they don’t, Louisiana will become an example of one of those examples we read about in history books about disastrous, life-ending choices communities made.

    Read this last week. Seeing the Tornado thread today, suggest they were accurate.
    from liberal site Daily Kos, they embed links to reference articles
    Atmospheric Convulsion Will Cause Historic Disasters of Arctic Melt & U.S. Storms Next Week


    [​IMG]
    A heat dome over the Arctic caused by an atmospheric short circuit will create a catastrophic collision between cold air pushed out of the Arctic into the mountain west with Gulf of Mexico air over the midcontinent over the next ten days. While the Arctic sea ice melts at extraordinary rates under the heat dome a series of tornado outbreaks will ravage the plains and farm belt from Texas to Ohio. This map shows temperature departures from normal at at about 85% of sea level pressure - about 5000ft elevation.
    RThe atmosphere had a convulsion at the end of April in the transition from winter to summer. The cold polar vortex in the stratosphere did not go gently into summer. Instead of fading slowly into a dome of warm air the whole atmosphere from the surface to the top of the stratosphere convulsed with wave energy driven upwards by an atmospheric dome over Scandinavia. Extraordinary atmospheric heating took place in the over the pole and cold air was pushed towards the temperate latitudes especially over the Pacific ocean. A dome of hot sinking air formed at very high levels over the Arctic pushing cold air and the jet stream south causing unseasonable storms to track across the Pacific ocean into California in mid May.

    [​IMG]
    This animation shows 8 days of forecast atmospheric circulation at the level of 50% of surface pressure. Extremely intense waves on the jet stream will cause severe storms to track from Texas to the Canadian border in the midcontinent region while an extraordinary meltdown hits Arctic sea ice at the worst possible time early in the melt season when it will cause maximum “Arctic amplification” by increasing adsorption of heat by dark open water.
    The European and American models agree on the main features — there will be severe storms beginning this weekend lasting for a week or more — but they have subtle differences in the timing and intensity of individual events. The most severe tornado outbreak is apparently going to begin on Monday or possibly Tuesday. However, severe weather outbreak forecasts aren’t reliable beyond 3 days or so, so expect modifications by local experts. Do not rely on anything I write here. This is written to give an early warning to people and because this is what climate change looks like. Consult your local NOAA weather forecasts to stay safe over the next week. The American model shows an extremely unstable situation developing late Monday over Texas and Oklahoma.

    [​IMG]
    An extremely unstable Gulf air mass will be sucked into an intense low pressure area developing over west Texas late Monday. It will be undercut by a very cold air mass pulled down over the mountain west by a disrupted jet stream. Note, the European model is a little slower, so this scenario could happen on Tuesday instead of Monday.
    If the European and American models verify on this storm we may witness a tornado outbreak of historic proportions. However, it is also possible that there could be very bad severe weather and flooding without an historic outbreak of tornadoes. It’s too early to make an accurate forecast.

    Update: European & American Models Agree on Monday
    There has also been an update from NOAA’s Severe Weather Prediction Center. It’s low key because forecasts beyond 3 days are subject to error and revision but it is consistent with what I wrote yesterday. www.spc.noaa.gov/…

    At this time there is high uncertainty about the number of tornadoes but the storms are likely to be slow moving and produce very heavy amounts of rain. The problem is that the jet stream is much more intense and further south than usual for mid-May and Gulf waters are very warm now, producing very wet unstable air masses. It’s a recipe for disaster.

    End Update
    The first round of severe weather will begin Friday in the southern plains. It isn’t expected to be as severe as the weather next week, but again, pay attention to your local forecast.

    [​IMG]
    THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CENTERED OVER CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND WEST TEXAS.....SUMMARY... Severe storms are expected across parts of the Plains, mainly from Nebraska southward into west Texas. Very large hail and a few tornadoes are possible. Scattered severe hail is also possible across southern South Dakota, as well as across parts of Ohio and West Virginia.
    The outbreaks of severe weather may continue for ten days according to the American model. Obviously the accuracy of the model is not good ten days out, but this is a very large scale wave pattern so this forecast is worth posting to make the point that the severe weather could get as far north as Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. There will be a very hot dome of air building over the southeast and it may persist. These heat domes can be very persistent once they get established.

    [​IMG]
    Severe weather may hit the northern tier of central states late next week if a dome of hot humid air gets established over the southeast as forecast by the American model. The red area is very unstable air.
    Dr. Judah Cohen observed a week ago that there was an extreme stratospheric disruption that would cause wild winter weather if it happened in February. It’s becoming apparent that this will cause wild spring weather in May. I suspect it will be an historic outbreak of severe weather.


    This isn’t your father’s atmosphere. The climate has changed. This is climate breakdown.

    &
    [​IMG]
    Satellite airmass image of the N Pacific for 16May2019 15Z(GMT). The image shows an unusual mid-May train of storms across the north Pacific ocean.

    Red areas on the back of Pacific storms are dry stratospheric air that has spun down into the troposphere. Because potential spin (vorticity) is conserved in the atmosphere the back side of spring storms is a preferred location for the descent of stratospheric air into the troposphere.
    Addendum
    Please note I made an error in my diary 2 weeks ago about the heat dome over Greenland.

    www.dailykos.com/…

    According to Dutch DMI Scientists 2019 had the second earliest start to the melt season, not the first. I misinterpreted the NSIDC graph which has unusual ways of expressing deviance.

    The melt season officially started a month early this year. In 2016 a very unusual weather pattern started melting in mid-April. polarportal.dk/...

    Today DMI scientists announced the start of the Greenland melt season, the second earliest in a record that stretches back to 1980. “The start of the melt season occurs on the first of three consecutive days where more than 5% of the ice sheet has melt at the surface.” said scientist Peter Langen. “We use a pretty strict definition as we want to make sure it is a consistent start to melting and not just a blip due to unseasonal weather”. This year’s start of 30th April is second only to 2016, when a very unusual weather pattern caused a very early start to the melt season in mid-April.

    “On average, the melt season starts around the 26th May, so we are almost a full month earlier this year” he continued.

    Number three on the list is 2nd May 2010 when a similar weather pattern also caused early melt onset closely followed by 2017 on the 7th May, the top four have all occurred within the last ten years.

    Note that the top 4 early melting years are all in the last decade. Spring is coming earlier to the Arctic and in many recent years it is happening in ways that disrupt normal northern hemispheric weather patterns with serious consequences to the lower 48 states.

    All of this discussion ties to this technical paper published over 10 years ago that found that climate change causes “an atmospheric short circuit” an increased circulation from the weather layer (the troposphere) into the stratosphere, and back. acomstaff.acom.ucar.edu/...

    Permafrost at outposts in the Canadian Arctic is thawing 70 years earlier than predicted, an expedition has discovered, in the latest sign that the global climate crisis is accelerating even faster than scientists had feared.

    A team from the University of Alaska Fairbanks said they were astounded by how quickly a succession of unusually hot summers had destabilised the upper layers of giant subterranean ice blocks that had been frozen solid for millennia.

    “What we saw was amazing,” Vladimir Romanovsky, a professor of geophysics at the university, told Reuters. “It’s an indication that the climate is now warmer than at any time in the last 5,000 or more years.“www.theguardian.com/...

    "In dispute" seems to be the climate change version of "enlightened centrism."

    Key words being - past two decades - which is VERY much in dispute.

    Lemme guess... You're one of those who pulls out the not-so-arbitrary date of 1998 because you're expecting that others are ignorant about the 1998 El Niño spiking the global temperature. Funny how it's always 1998, aka the "past two decades."

    Alaska hits 90 degrees on July 4th, breaking 50-year-old record

    Alaska has been seeing a heat wave this spring and summer. Temperatures have been up in place like Utqiaġvik (formerly known as Barrow), 18.6 degrees Fahrenheit above normal. This Fourth of July was no exception to the record-breaking heat, as CNN reports that 90 degree temperatures in The Last Frontier were recorded July Fourth. The record-setting heat number was taken at Anchorage’s airport and broke the previous record set in 1969.

    June’s record-heat wave has hit across the globe, with France hitting well into the triple digits last week, and Greenland saw “widespread melting across the surface of the ice sheet.” California’s coast has seen its own rising temperatures, and thousands—possibly hundreds of thousands—of mussels have ended up cooked in their shells, due to the unseasonably warm weather. And the heat wave isn’t going away because it’s not a normal heatwave, as Brian Brettschneider, a climate researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, tells NBC News, “It’s entirely possible that the warmest temperature ever recorded in Anchorage could be exceeded three to five days in a row. That’s the definition of unusual.”

    Climate scientists explain that climate change does not cause these events, they contribute to and exacerbate them. And what is being seen in Alaska and around the world is the result of these changes brought about by our Earth’s increasing temperatures. Climatologist Rick Thoman explains, “When other pieces line up like high pressure over the state and very warm sea surface temperatures, all the pieces fit together and make these extreme, or even unprecedented, events that much more likely.”

    Remember when the talking point by conservatives was that this was a hoax created by foreign powers?
