SHOCK NEWS! Arctic Summers Ice-Free by 2013

We need to get some broad based support,
to capture the public’s imagination…
So we have to offer up scary scenarios,
make simplified, dramatic statements
and make little mention of any doubts…
Each of us has to decide what the right balance
is between being effective and being honest.

– Prof. Stephen Schneider,
Stanford Professor of Climatology,
lead author of many IPCC reports

The only way to get our society to truly change is to
frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe
.”
– emeritus professor Daniel Botkin

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

Will Steffen of Australia’s Climate Commission reports a melting arctic and The emission of methane from the Arctic Ocean will wreak financial havoc:

“Warming is strongest in the northern high latitudes … An example is the loss of Arctic sea ice, which contributes to the thawing of the permafrost under the East Siberian Sea.” “Recent observations show that methane is beginning to bubble up … as the Arctic sea ice continues to retreat and the region continues to warm.”  

  • The release of the East Siberian Sea methane would lead to impacts worth about US$60 trillion (by comparison, the total value of the world’s economy in 2012 was about US$70 trillion, and the value of the Australian economy is about US$1.5 trillion).

Second Largest Arctic Ice Gain On Record

Posted on Real Science August 8, 2013 by 

Arctic ice area has increased by almost 20,000 Manhattans from this date last year, making it the second largest increase on record. The only year which gained more ice was 1996.

In a few days, it is likely that 2013 will move into the #1 spot.

Galileo Movement Video: It’s Steam – Stupid

  • Most modern or upgraded coal-fire plants, mainly from the west, are required under strict regulations to remove 99% of particulates known as fly-ash. This is why the air in modern cities like Melbourne, Sydney, America and Europe have some of the cleanest air in the world. Compared with the chronically polluted cities of China, SE Asia and the sub-continent, who aren’t required to adhere to strict ‘particulate’ emission standards.
  • Most underdeveloped countries simply cannot afford to retro-fit their existing plants to make them clean or simply do without to keep costs down.

 

  • Another example of why the greatest driver of environmental health is economic prosperity. If you want a healthy environment, you need a healthy economy. Draconian climate policy threatens the wealth and prosperity of western economies. Potentially limiting the ability to divert excess capital to innovate and keep improving the overall environment.

 

Tallbloke's Talkshop

One of my pet peeves is the way the media always use images of power stations shot from an angle at a time of day when the steam condensate coming out of cooling towers is made to look like smoke. I mentioned it quite recently as being at the top of my list of annoyances about the way climate and energy issues are reported. Now the Galileo Movement in Australia has made a nice short (2min) video to alert the public to the way they are being lied to, manipulated and deceived.

Seas could boil dry say scientists | Herald Scotland

Published on 29 July 2013

A GLOBAL warming Armageddon in which the oceans boil dry could theoretically happen on Earth, researchers claim.

But human activity on its own will probably not trigger such an end-of-the-world scenario in the near future.

Previously it was thought more solar energy was needed for global warming to truly spin out of control.

But new calculations from Canadian and US scientists show catastrophic warming could occur more easily than was thought on a planet getting the level of solar radiation Earth does.

The team wrote in the journal Nature Geoscience: “A renewed modelling effort is needed, addressing both Earth and planetary science applications.”

Our closes neighbour Venus is believed to have had a runaway greenhouse effect. Shrouded in carbon dioxide atmosphere, its surface temperature is 460˚C – hot enough to melt lead.

The new study did not take into account the effect of clouds. But it still suggests that under certain atmospheric conditions a stable Earth could switch to a runaway greenhouse state.
