More for the deniers.

The Collapse of a Major Atlantic Current Would Cause Worldwide Disasters.

A shutdown of a major current in the Atlantic Ocean would rapidly transform wind, temperature, and precipitation patterns across the whole globe, according to new research.

The current is already slowing, likely at least in part because of human-caused climate change. Now, scientists have found that, if the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) collapses completely, there would be never-before-predicted impacts, according to a study published last week in the journal Nature Climate Change.

The researchers determined that, without the AMOC, the tropical Pacific Ocean cools, and trade winds intensify and shift south. The resulting climate state would resemble a permanent La Niña and could trigger catastrophic monsoons and flooding in the South Pacific, along with increased drought and heat in parts of North America.

In other words: If human actions make the AMOC run amok, the ensuing climate chaos would be even worse and weirder than previously expected...
As climate changes increase, so could this precious commodity in the West.

Some of the most important water sources in the Western U.S. are drying up as a decades-long megadrought continues to intensify and temperatures steadily rise as a result of climate change.

And as the commodity becomes more precious, residents could soon see an uptick in their water bills, experts tell ABC News.

Water levels have gotten so low in Lake Mead, the nation's largest reservoir, that human remains have been discovered among the receding waters. The Colorado River, a major freshwater source for more 40 million people in seven southwestern U.S. states and parts of northern Mexico, has lost 20% of its water levels over the past 22 years, making it the most endangered river in the country.

As global temperatures continue to rise, causing the drought conditions in the West to persist, ensuring an ample supply of water to sustain communities will continue to be a challenge, experts say. Temperatures are currently at the hottest the planet has experienced in the past 2,000 years, according to NASA.

The first step in conserving water is for water utility companies to implement drought plans in stages, the first being asking for voluntary restraint by residents, Ed Osann, director of national water use efficiency for the nonprofit Natural Resources Defense Council, told ABC News....

And another one: Great Salt Lake has lost 2/3 of its water. Note the 1987/2021 satellite photos.

Also note that "Most alarming, the air surrounding Salt Lake City would occasionally turn poisonous. The lake bed contains high levels of arsenic and as more of it becomes exposed, wind storms carry that arsenic into the lungs of nearby residents, who make up three-quarters of Utah’s population."

Nepal to move Everest base camp from melting glacier

Nepal is preparing to move its Everest base camp because global warming and human activity are making it unsafe.

The camp, used by up to 1,500 people in the spring climbing season, is situated on the rapidly thinning Khumbu glacier. A new site is to be found at a lower altitude, where there is no year-round ice, an official told the BBC.

Researchers say melt-water destabilises the glacier, and climbers say crevasses are increasingly appearing at base camp while they sleep...

Meanwhile, the Australian fossils industry pollutes and expensively fails, while everyone else around them drowns or gets cooked or gets chilled:


Eight million Australians urged to turn off lights
wrote:
Australia's energy minister has urged households in New South Wales - a state that includes the country's biggest city Sydney - to switch off their lights in the face of an energy crisis.

... It comes after Australia's main wholesale electricity market was suspended because of a surge in prices. Mr Bowen asked people living in New South Wales to conserve as much power as possible...

... Three quarters of the country's electricity is still generated using coal. It has long been accused of not doing enough to cut its emissions by investing in renewables.

In recent weeks, Australia has felt the impact of disruptions to coal supplies, outages at several coal-fired power plants and soaring global energy prices. Flooding earlier this year hit some coal mines in New South Wales and Queensland, while technical issues have cut production at two mines that supply the market's biggest coal-fired station in New South Wales.

Around a quarter of Australia's coal-fired electricity generating capacity is currently out of service due to unexpected outages and scheduled maintenance...

... Meanwhile, demand for energy has jumped amid a cold snap and as Australia's economy opens up after Covid-19 restrictions were eased...

... Australia's biggest electricity producer AGL Energy said it expected to be able to supply more power to businesses and consumers in the coming days.

It has three units that have been out of service at its coal-fired plant in Bayswater, New South Wales. They are among several planned and unplanned outages that have helped cause the power crisis.

AGL said that one of the units should return to service on Thursday, while another will come back online by Saturday...

... policymakers have been aware of the risks of ageing generators for decades. "The sector's regulators and policy makers have ignored the escalating capacity constraints of aging generation assets, fired by fossil fuels, that dominate the sector," Prof Chester said.



Is this the New South Wales version of the Texas power grift and farce and fiasco?

Meanwhile, the pollution of our planet continues...

Actually the problem wasn't just in NSW Martin (Queensland, Victoria and SA were involved as well) and no load shedding has occurred as yet, but poor penny pinching maintenance procedures by the private companies that bought the old generators off both right wing controlled state and federal governments along with the do nothing attitudes that they love have brought on this current situation

With this new federal government we'll be seeing a lot more solar panels and wind turbines about the place that the previous government wanted to desperately ignore while peddling coal for all it was worth.

Wow! :-O

There looks to be plenty of gas being passed here into the air.

US gas pipeline leaks occur every 40 hours.

From 2010 to 2021, almost 2,600 such leaks occurred that were serious enough to require federal reporting — with 850 resulting from fires and 328 from explosions, according to the study, released by U.S. Public Interest Research Groups (U.S. PIRG) Educational Fund.

These incidents killed 122 people and injured 603, with total costs in property damage, emergency services and the value of unintentionally released gas totaling nearly $4 billion, the authors observed.

Such events also led to the leakage of 26.6 billion cubic feet of natural gas — the equivalent to more than 2.4 million passenger vehicles driven for a year, according to the report, published together with Environment America Research & Policy Center and the Frontier Group think tank....

...Moving forward, the report authors recommended that the U.S. curb its reliance on natural gas for home heating and cooking as well as for electricity generation.

They argued that policymakers should instead incentivize the transition to all-electric buildings and renewable energy. And in the interim, they suggested focusing gas infrastructure investments on fixing leaks.

“Fully protecting the public requires us to reduce our dependence on gas,” Dutzik added.

You would certainly gag in many of the cities in China, not only from the cigarette smoke, but from the air pollution. The only time the air is "clean" in so many of them is for the few minutes after a really heavy rain storm, but then you have to watch where you tread as you may find that large puddle is actually a puddle that used to be a visible missing sewer cover, but now, thanks to the rain looks just like the rest of the large puddles. And don't ask about the short fat brown logs that are floating about.

I think I've posted my answer to that one before, but here goes.

Sure - it's your coal, your air, your people, your countryside. Go ahead and burn as much as you like - we hope you choke on the fumes, and the quicker, the better.

But if you let one single molecule of the fumes cross state lines, and pollute the air of another state, we'll throw the goddam Federal book at you.
