Finally, ultimately?

Unequivocally:


Climate change: Siberian heatwave 'clear evidence' of warming
wrote:
A record-breaking heatwave in Siberia would have been almost impossible without human-caused climate change, a study has found.

The Russian region's temperatures were more than 5C above average between January and June of this year.

Temperatures exceeded 38C in the Russian town of Verkhoyansk on 20 June, the highest temperature ever recorded north of the Arctic circle...

... That makes such an event "almost impossible" had the world not been warmed by greenhouse gas emissions, they conclude in the study. The scientists described the finding as "unequivocal evidence of the impact of climate change on the planet"...

... The extreme temperatures led to a cascade of natural and human disasters which prompted Russian President Vladimir Putin to declare a state of emergency in early June...

... "Looking at the geological record, we don't think we've had CO2 levels as high for about five million years," said Dr Hendry. "So we really don't know what to expect into the future." "We are," she said, "in uncharted territory"...




Deny that?!

CAN the politicians deny that?

Is this the ultimate prompt to take positive action?...

Deny this?!

Ignore this at our peril:


YouTube: Forests Make Massive Flying Rivers on Earth According to Biotic Pump
wrote:
... an interesting theory that suggests our planet's atmosphere is filled with so-called flying rivers created by forests around the world, suggesting that forests control the water distribution and even wind on the planet...



There's also parallel research that suggests that forests naturally seed cloud formation, again to improve their local climate in a virtuous feedback loop... All by the power of natural physics...

Our existing trees are far more valuable than mere wood and looking pretty.

Deny this heat?!


'Highest temperature on Earth' as Death Valley, US hits 54.4C
wrote:
... 130F (54.4C) - may have been reached in Death Valley National Park, California.

The recording is being verified by the US National Weather Service.

It comes amid a heatwave on the US's west coast, where temperatures are forecast to rise further this week.

The scorching conditions have led to two days of blackouts in California, after a power plant malfunctioned on Saturday...



How quickly before we suffer ever more areas of our only one planet becoming uninhabitable?

Deny this withering melt?


'Unprecedented' ice loss as Greenland breaks record
wrote:
... the loss of ice in Greenland lurched forward again last year, breaking the previous record by 15%.

A new analysis says that the scale of the melt was "unprecedented" in records dating back to 1948...

... ongoing emissions of carbon are pushing Greenland into an era of more extreme melting...

... A major international report on Greenland released last December concluded that it was losing ice seven times faster than it was during the 1990s. Today's new study shows that trend is continuing...


Yet more recently broken records...

How quickly before we suffer ever more areas of our only one planet becoming flooded uninhabitable?

Special note: The thing is with "record breaking" is that for any stable system, the 'record breakers' should occur only at the start of keeping records. Later as time progresses, as those records capture all the normal variations, no further 'record breakers' should be seen. Unless... See about our planet!

Yet another 'pollution event'...

And the cleanup continues still:


YouTube: Kingston Fossil Plant coal ash spill


Yet another big tailings pond spill wiping out the adjoining rivers and poisoning the land and water for everyone for many miles around.

Yet also there is the often repeated game for the operator to try to pin the blame somehow elsewhere!!



There has to be better cleaner safer ways to generate electricity...

Wonder what this will do to one of their delicacies - Sashimi?
The water would be diluted inside the plant before release so it is 40 times less concentrated, the Yomiuri Shimbun said, with the whole process taking 30 years.

(To misquote a famous space engineer ;-) )

Ya cannae deny the physics:


Hurricanes get stronger on land as world warms
wrote:
North Atlantic hurricanes are retaining far more of their strength when they hit land because of global warming...

... "As to the underlying reason, our analysis suggests that the culprit is climate change."

The scientists found that in the late 1960s, hurricanes typically lost 75% of their intensity in the first day after landfall. Nowadays, the decay is only about 50%.

The researchers believe that the key to the storms retaining their power is the warm moisture they have picked up along the way...

... "Unfortunately, our research also suggests that as the climate keeps warming, the decay of hurricanes will keep getting slower, and consequently, regions farther inland will face the wrath of ever stronger storms."...

FAIL. Big time.
Looking at small issues rather than the large ones.
Well, they have to justify their research.

Thanks for that, good thoughtful article:

... "What really makes a difference is buying less kit, and keeping it for longer," Prof Preist explains. "But even this is small fry compared with your travel, heating your home, and what you eat."

He said consumers should focus their "eco-guilt" on things that make a difference - and not sweat the small stuff.

"That is the job of the companies providing the services, who should be designing their systems to deliver services in as energy and resource efficient way as possible."

His advice on email etiquette and thank-you messages?

"Send an email if you feel that the other person will value it, and don't if they won't," he said.

"The biggest 'waste' both from an environmental and personal point of view will be the use of time by both of you."
