8/16/19 Fracking prompts global spike in atmospheric methane, study suggests - - WHAT THE STUDY - DOES NOT - ISOLATE - IS WHAT OF THE RAPID RISE IN GLOBAL METHANE IS DUE TO - SIBERIAN AND ARCTIC METHANE RELEASE! PARTICULARLY SINCE 2016!
"Atmospheric methane levels had previously risen during the last two decades of the 20th century but levelled in the first decade of 21st century. Then, atmospheric methane levels increased dramatically from 2008-14, from about 570 teragrams (570 billion tons) annually to about 595 teragrams, due to global human-caused methane emissions in the last 11 years.
"This recent increase in methane is massive," Howarth said. "It's globally significant. It's contributed to some of the increase in global warming we've seen and shale gas is a major player.""
Signs point to fracking
Natural gas is mainly methane. Fracking involves drilling an oil or gas well vertically and then horizontally into a shale formation. A mixture of highly pressurized water, chemicals, and sand is injected to create and prop open fissures, or pathways for the gas to flow. Nearly all of the world’s fracking operations are in the U.S. and Canada.
About two-thirds of all new gas production globally over the last decade has been shale gas produced in the U.S. and Canada using fracking, Howarth’s study found.
The amount of methane added to the atmosphere in the past decade also corresponds to studies that show fracking operations leak, vent, or flare between 2 and 6 percent of the gas produced, Howarth said.
A 2015 study estimated that North Texas’ Barnett Shale region leaked 544,000 tons of methane a year using a conservative leakage rate of 1.5 percent. That’s equivalent to 46 million tons of CO2, more than some states such as Nevada or Connecticut.
A 2015 study led by John Worden of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory found that methane levels were unchanged for years, but increased sharply after 2006, growing by 25 million tons a year. Using satellites and other measures they concluded that fossil fuels were responsible for between 12 and 19 million tons of this additional methane and the rest was likely biological sources.
The Howarth study adds another piece to the extremely complicated methane puzzle, Worden said in an email, declining to elaborate.
It’s unlikely that the sharp rise in global methane levels at the same time as shale oil and gas operations increased dramatically is just coincidence, said Anthony Ingraffea, a Professor of Engineering at Cornell University and a colleague of Howarth’s. The paper suggests shale gas’s chemical fingerprint offers evidence of a direct link, said Ingraffea, who reviewed an early version of the paper.

'Ecological grief': Greenland residents traumatised by climate emergency
Islanders are struggling to reconcile impact of global heating with traditional way of life, survey finds
Life on thin ice: mental health at the heart of the climate crisis
The climate crisis is causing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety to people in Greenland who are struggling to reconcile the traumatic impact of global heating with their traditional way of life.
The first ever national survey examining the human impact of the climate emergency, revealed in the Guardian on Monday, shows that more than 90% of islanders interviewed fully accept that the climate crisis is happening, with a further 76% claiming to have personally experienced global heating in their daily lives, from coping with dangerous sea ice journeys to having sled dogs euthanised for economic reasons tied to shorter winters.
The Greenlandic Perspectives Survey was carried out by the University of Copenhagen’s Center for Social Data Science, the Kraks Fond Institute for Urban Economic Research and the University of Greenland. The study samples almost 2% of the population, spanning an area almost three times the size of France. An equivalent study in the UK would involve a sample of almost 1 million citizens.
Scattered across 17 small towns and approximately 60 villages, all situated on a narrow coastal strip, Greenland’s residents have often been overlooked by data science. The island faces some of the most acute social issues in the world with high levels of alcoholism and historically disproportionate rates of suicide.
According to its lead author, Kelton Minor, the survey finally gives Greenland’s most remote and inaccessible communities a voice on the climate crisis.
He said: “The Arctic is a bellwether for the unequal impact of global warming on social and economic systems. As countries struggle to limit future risks and overall warming to 1.5C [an increase of 2.7F], many Arctic and Greenlandic residents are already living in regional climates that have changed by more than this, in less than a lifetime.
“Therein lies the paradox: while satellites and sensors monitor the surface of Greenland’s ice sheet, chase icebergs and scan sea ice daily, relatively little is known about what the residents of Greenland think about their changing surroundings.”
According to the data, detailed in a Guardian investigation carried out across Greenland in the last month, the majority of local residents interviewed believe that the climate emergency will harm its people, sled dogs, plants and animals. The revelation contradicts arguments that local people believe climate breakdown will benefit the Arctic and raises concern over a growing mental health crisis around climate in the polar region.
Minor said: “We find that a large majority of the Greenlandic population thinks that local sea ice has become more dangerous to travel on in recent years, suggesting that perceptions of growing risk are widespread for this important social, ecological and economic platform used by residents from all regions. Importantly, we find that residents are more likely to feel negative rather than positive sentiment when thinking about climate change, recent changes in sea ice, as well as glacial changes.”
The survey is revealed as the Arctic faces potentially record warming levels. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Colorado, US, Greenland has already lost more than 250bn tonnes from a combination of melt runoff and low total snowfall in July.
For mental health professionals who specialise in the polar region, the latest survey findings from Greenland will present another red flag for the Arctic’s vulnerable Inuit communities. According to Courtney Howard, the board president of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, who lives and works in the Arctic, the intersection between the climate emergency and mental and physical health will become one of the world’s major issues.
Howard said: “Temperature change is magnified in circumpolar regions. There is no question Arctic people are now showing symptoms of anxiety, ‘ecological grief’ and even post-traumatic stress related to the effects of climate change.
“We are challenging the medical profession to acknowledge the world we are inheriting. Schools and universities aren’t considering how climate change will affect people, from a medical or a psychological perspective, so we are not training a new generation of medical professionals to help people in a fast-changing planet and this is intolerable. We are moving too slowly on this.”

Greenland’s Rapid Melting Is a Hugely Underplayed Story
Stephen L. Carter
August 10, 2019
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- The announcement that 11 billion tons dropped off the Greenland Ice Sheet in one day turned out to be a made-for-television example of the effects of climate change. Dramatic videos of water pouring off the glaciers went viral. But apart from the occasional spectacular image, it’s hard to focus the attention of the news media on the Greenland Ice Sheet. And that’s too bad.
Because it’s worse than you thought.
Consider: According to NASA’s National Snow & Ice Data Center, between June 11 and June 20 of this year, the Greenland Ice Sheet (or GIS) lost an estimated 80 billion tons of ice. That’s an average of 8 billion tons every 24 hours for 10 days, a record warming event. But there was hardly a whisper of news coverage, perhaps because there weren’t any exciting videos.
Maybe the old cliché is true after all: A picture is worth a thousand words. After all, the GIS has been melting for decades. The tough part is getting people to pay attention. In northeast Greenland the sheet is vanishing even faster than climate models predict. Recent research has shown that the most rapid melt is in southwest Greenland, where the glaciers by and large don’t terminate in the sea. This result, which took many climate scientists by surprise, tends to confirm rising temperatures rather than changing ocean currents as the cause.
Yes, it’s possible that Greenland’s ice sheet actually grew slightly in 2017. It’s also possible that snowfall in 2017 and 2018 roughly balanced the mass of ice loss. But before climate-change skeptics bombard me (@StepCarter) with snide told-ya-so’s, bear in mind these are only possibilities. Unfortunately, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment satellite, our most sensitive measuring tool, stopped giving reliable data in 2016 and went dead during 2017. (Happily, a follow-on mission lifted into orbit in May of 2018).
Besides, recent ice growth, if any, seems to be an anomaly in a long-term melting trend. As the same Danish researchers who made the point about snowfall noted, “the neutral mass change in the last two years does not — and cannot — begin to compensate for these losses.”
Even prominent climate skeptics have begun to concede that the disappearance of the GIS is related to the globe’s changing climate. Alas, a sobering paper from the distinguished Yale economist William Nordhaus argues that we’re already too late. Absent forms of extreme restraint that will are politically impossible, writes Nordhaus, Greenland’s ice sheet is going to melt over the next few centuries, and rebuilding it will be the work of many generations.
What would be the result? A 2017 study found that the Greenland ice sheet, which as recently as 1993 contributed only 5% of the rise in sea levels, is now responsible for 25%. Melting of the GIS over the past 40 years has raised sea levels only about half an inch. According to recent modeling, however, the disintegration of Greenland’s ice is likely to raise sea levels along the East Coast of the U.S. by a minimum of 0.2 meters (about 8 inches) over the next century.(1) Unless you spend a lot of time in littoral areas, this may not sound like much, but bear in mind that those extra inches would be the starting level for future storm surges. (Yes, melting on the GIS may cause similar effects in coastal Europe.)
Don’t get me wrong: Climate change poses bigger threats than the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, dramatic as that event might prove. But it’s the GIS that’s in the news right now, and it’s the melting of the GIS that might well prove impossible to stop.
If all of this is inevitable, what to do? The buzz words are adaptation and mitigation.
Adaptation we might loosely call learning to live with what comes next. Successful adaptation could reduce the costs of coastal damage over the next century by a factor of seven. For example, people who live along the seacoast might pull up stakes. Although some activists write as though anything short of official mandate represents a policy failure, a degree of adaptation may already be occurring. According to “Climate Gentrification” theory, as people learn about the effects of climate change, those who can afford to move, will. In particular, they will begin to abandon the coast and move further inland. This may already be happening: A study of the Miami real estate market found that since 2000, properties at higher elevations have appreciated in value faster than similar properties at lower elevations. (The research is often misdescribed in the press as showing that coastal properties have lost value.)

July 2019 Hottest Month On Record
The July 2019 temperature was on a par with, and possibly marginally higher than, that of July 2016, according to a World Meteorological Organization (WMO) news release pointing an image by the Copernicus Climate Change Programme that is used as the background for above image.
Previously, July 2016 was the hottest month on record with a global land and ocean temperature of 16.67°C (62.01°F), or 3.25°C above the pre-industrial temperature of 13.42°C (56.16°F) and surpassing the record set before that, in July 2015.
There's a spread of more than 3°C between the coldest and hottest monthly temperatures, in line with the seasonal cycle. Since the land/sea ratio is larger on the Northern Hemisphere and land heats up faster than oceans, July typically is the hottest month of the year, so the annual mean temperature for the year 2019 will be somewhat lower than the temperature for July 2019. An earlier analysis points at a potential mean temperature for 2019 of 15.27°C, or 1.85°C above pre-industrial, but depending on the strength of El Niño over the remainder of the year, 2019 could even cross the 2°C guardrail that politicians at the Paris Agreement pledged would not be crossed.
As temperatures keep rising, there are places on the northern hemisphere where the July heat is becoming ever harder to bear.
The image on the right shows that on July 29, 2019, it felt like it was as hot as 57.2°C or 135°F in China (in the area marked by the green circle).
How could it get this hot? As the image underneath on the right shows, the temperature in that area was 35.1°C or 95.1°F (at the right circle), while it was much hotter at some places elsewhere in China, e.g. it was 41.5°C or 106.6°F at the left circle on July 29, 2019.
What made the weather so hard to bear was a combination of high temperature and high relative humidity, which was 81% in the area at the circle on the right at the time.
The jet stream is becoming ever more deformed as the Arctic heats up faster than the rest of the world. On July 29, 2019, the jet stream was all over the place, with a strong presence north of the circle, which made warm, moist air from the south move over China.
Since the Arctic continues to heat up faster than the rest of the world, such situations are likely to become more common.
Wet Bulb Temperature
The temperature in that area of 35.1°C, at 81% relative humidity and a pressure level of 1004 hPa, translates into a wet bulb temperature of 32.11°C.
Had the temperature remained at 35.1°C, but had relative humidity kept rising to 100%, i.e. rainfall, the wet bulb temperature threshold of 35°C would have been exceeded (35.01°C). Alternatively, had relative humidity remained at 81%, but had the temperature kept rising to 38.2°C, the wet bulb temperature threshold of 35°C would equally have been exceeded (35.07°C), showing how dangerous the situation is. A wet bulb temperature of 35°C can be lethal, as the human body will be unable to lose heat, even when the wind is strong and no matter how much one drinks or sweats.
The situation is dire and calls for comprehensive and effective action, as described in the Climate Plan.

Europe’s warm air spikes Greenland melting to record levels (NSIDC)
Warm air from Europe’s heat wave reached Greenland on July 29 and 30, setting temperature records at Summit Station and melting about 90 percent of the ice sheet surface from July 30 to August 3. Melt runoff was estimated at 55 billion tons during the interval, or about 40 billion tons more than the 1981 to 2010 average for the same time period. Overall, melting this July was much higher than average, leading to more extensive bare ice and flooded snow areas.
A rapid increase in surface melting on the Greenland ice sheet began on July 30 and continued through August 3, covering primarily the central and northern areas of the ice sheet on both the east and west ice sheet slopes. On July 30 and 31, melting reached the Summit Camp area of the ice sheet, corroborated by both air temperature from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather station at Summit and the passive-microwave melt analysis. Peak melt area occurred on July 31, with just over 60 percent of the ice sheet surface experiencing melt (Figure 1a). Over the course of the five-day event approximately 90 percent of the surface of Greenland reached the melting point at least once.
The daily sum of melt area in July was 397,560 square kilometers (154,500 square miles), well above the 1988 to 2017 average of 337,945 square kilometers (130,481 square miles). The 1988 to 2017 range is a 30-year record of daily melt mapping for Greenland in summer. Melt area mapping from 1979 to 1987, on the other hand, recorded every other day, using a earlier passive microwave satellite.
Cumulatively, the 2019 season sum of melt area for every day is tracking well behind 2012, the satellite-era record for total melt-day area, and slightly behind 2016 (Figure 1b). However, total ice mass loss for 2019 is nearly equal to 2012 because of low winter snowfall. Early melting of the surface in 2019 quickly removed the snow accumulation from winter, and deeper melting this month has eroded older snow and ice over large areas of the western side of Greenland.
Surface air temperatures during the warm event over Greenland peaked to 12 degrees Celsius (22 degrees Fahrenheit) above the 1981 to 2010 reference period, and averaged 3 to 9 degrees Celsius (5 to 16 degrees Fahrenheit) above the reference period over nearly the entire ice sheet for the five-day period. High pressure was centered over the ice sheet during the event.
Extreme warm air conditions were present over western Europe in late July, as desert air from the Sahara moved northward. Following the record high temperatures in France, the Netherlands, and Germany, counterclockwise airflow around a low pressure in the North Atlantic brought the warm air mass from Scandinavia to Iceland and then to Greenland. As warm air arrived at Summit Station, Greenland, a prolonged period of near-freezing to above-freezing temperatures occurred on July 30 and 31. In a place where the sun sits low on the horizon at night, these temperatures are unprecedented in the period of observations for this site, which began in 1987. Temperatures dropped further on the night of July 31, but came close to melting again on August 1. With air incoming from the east and some cloudiness in the south of Greenland, melting was amplified on the western side by heating from air compression in downslope winds, increasing the surface melting and runoff. The westward movement of the warm air mass is unusual. Most recent warm events, such as the widespread melting earlier this year, and in July and August of 2012, were a result of air masses coming from the southwest and up along the western Greenland coast.
"THE BIG ONE" CONTINUES ITS DECLINE! UNLIKELY TO MAKE "ICE FREE 2019!" BY 2022! WHAT WILL HAPPEN THEN? WILL "THE SIBERIAN METHANE MONSTER" - "HOT STUFF" - BE UNLEASHED? DRIVING "HELL ON EARTH BY 2025-2030?"
8/8/19 "THE BIG ONE" CONTINUES ITS HISTORIC DECLINE! WILL IT BE "ICE FREE 2019?!" HARD TO TELL YET, DUE TO "SLUSHY ARCTIC OCEAN" AND THE "15% COVERAGE" CALCULATION BY NSIDC, HOWEVER THE DECLINE IS "STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT" VERSUS ALL YEARS, EVEN 2012.
2012 WAS HISTORIC, IN THAT IT BROKE UP MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF THE "MULTI-YEAR ICE." WHICH RESULTED IN SHOWING A MASSIVE DECLINE IN SEA ICE EXTENT, DUE TO THE BREAK UP OF THIS "MULTI-YEAR ICE."
2019 IS SIGNIFICANT, IN THAT IT FOLLOWS 2018, WHICH SAW THE "REMAINING MULTI-YEAR ICE" BROKEN UP, WHILE THE SIGNIFICANT REMAINING "SLUSHY ICE EXTENT" IS MELTING QUICKLY.
NOTE HOW THE 2019 LINE IS BELOW 2012, BUT IS ALSO SIGNIFICANTLY BELOW ALL OTHER YEARS. THIS IS DUE TO THE REMAINING "SLUSHY ARCTIC ICE" MELTING, DUE TO: MASSIVE METHANE RELEASES THIS WINTER 2019 AND LAST 2018; THE MASSIVE SAHARAN / EUROPEAN / GREENLAND HEAT WAVE; THE UNPRESENTED SIBERIAN AND ARCTIC WILDFIRES; THE EXTREMELY WARM ARCTIC OCEAN WATERS AND OCEAN WATERS HEADING INTO THE ARCTIC, ETC., ALL OF WHICH I HAVE DOCUMENTED ON THIS SITE.
2019 WILL BE HISTORIC, IN THAT THE REMAINING "SLUSHY ARCTIC ICE" IS MELTING RAPIDLY! WILL IT BECOME OFFICIALLY "ICE FREE," A "BLUE OCEAN" - NOT LIKELY - STILL POSSIBLE. HOWEVER, IT SETS UP THE CONDITIONS FOR HITTING "BLUE OCEAN" BY 2020? 2022 AT THE LATEST! AS PAUL BECKWITH NOTES, THERE IS A GREAT DEAL OF "SLUSHY ICE IN THE ARCTIC," SO IT MAY TAKE UNTIL 2022, TO BE OFFICIALLY "A BLUE OCEAN!"
NOTE: THERE APPEARS TO BE A DIFFERENCE OF VIEWS OF "ICE FREE" AS "1 MILLION SQUARE KILOMETERS OF SEA ICE EXTENT, OR LESS," WHILE "A BLUE OCEAN" IS A TOTAL ICE FREE OCEAN. NOT SURE IF THESE ARE "COMMON PARLANCE TERMS," OR IF THEY ARE OFFICIALLY DEFINED. I HAVE BEEN USING THEM AS DIFFERENT, SOME USE "ICE FREE" AND "BLUE OCEAN," AS THE SAME TERMS, AND DEFINED AS UNDER 1 MILLION SQ KILOMETERS.
THE GREAT SIBERIAN METHANE COVER UP
WHAT IS AMAZING IS THE EXTENT OF "THE SIBERIAN METHANE COVERUP."
1. SAM CARANA, SEE PRIOR POST, DOES NOT FACTOR IN SIBERIAN METHANE RELEASE AS A MEANINGFUL FACTOR IN THE 18C - 32.4F MASSIVE RISE IN GLOBAL MEAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES (GMAT), HE/SHE/THEY FORECAST BY 2026, ONLY ATTRIBUTING 1.1C, SEAFLOOR METHANE RELEASE.
2. THE VIDEO OF IGOR SEMILTOV'S 2016 RESEARCH EXCURSION ON THE EAST SIBERIAN ARCTIC SHELF, WHICH I PROVIDE A LINK TO BELOW, HAS BEEN REMOVED. VLAD, ABRUPT CLIMATE CHANGE MAY SOUND GOOD FOR RUSSIA, NOT IF IT CAUSES HUMAN EXTINCTION!
3. THE IPCC, HANSEN, AND MANY, IF NOT MOST, IN THE "CLIMATE SCIENTISTS" COMMUNITY, ARE IGNORING "SIBERIAN METHANE" - BY CHOICE OR BY FEAR - MANY NOTING, THAT - "IF SIBERIAN METHANE WERE RELEASED - IT WOULD CHANGE - THE WHOLE STORY!" SAY WHAT? IF IT IS BEING RELEASED, CONSIDER THESE FACTS:
4. THE RECENT PAPER BY THE WORLD'S EXPERT ON SIBERIAN METHANE, NATALIA SHAKHOVA (SEE VIDEO ABOVE), ARGUES THAT THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY IS NOT GETTING THE FACTS CORRECTLY. THE RISK OF MASSIVE SIBERIAN METHANE RELEASES ARE NOT ONLY REAL, THEY ARE HAPPENING NOW.
5. AS DR. GUY MCPHERSON NOTES, NATALIA TOLD US IN 2008, THAT THE RISKS OF A 50 GIGATON RELEASE WAS REAL AT ANY TIME - IN 2008!
6. AS THE MOST FAMOUS CLIMATE SCIENTIST, JIM HANSEN, NOTED - IF THERE WERE A 46 GIGATON RELEASE OF SIBERIAN METHANE, THIS WOULD ROUGHLY DOUBLE THE GLOBAL ATMOSPHERIC BURDEN OF CARBON, FROM ROUGHLY 400 PLUS PPM, TO 800 PLUS PPM, WHICH HE BELIEVES WOULD CAUSE NEAR-TERM HUMAN EXTINCTION. THIS IS - NOT - INCLUDING THE IMPLOSION AND EXPLOSION OF THE WORLD'S 450 HEADING TO 510 NUCLEAR REACTORS, AS DR. GUY MCPHERSON STATED WOULD HAPPEN WITH THE COLLAPSE OF CIVILIZATION GLOBALLY.
I HAVE LAID OUT THESE EVENTS/FACTS TO SUPPORT THE THESIS THAT "THE CLATHRATE GUN HAS FIRED," "NON-STOPPABLE SIBERIAN METHANE RELEASE," "THE SIBERIAN METHANE MONSTER" HAS ARISEN, OR AS I LIKE TO CALL HER. . .
. . . . "HOT STUFF LIVES!" GIVEN WHAT WE KNOW HAS HAPPENED SINCE 2016. NOW IMAGINE THE ARCTIC BECOMING "A BLUE OCEAN," AND THE WATER TEMPERATURE RISING RAPIDLY, DUE TO "THE LATENT HEAT EFFECT," IT SEEMS REASONABLE TO ME TO ARGUE THAT. . . .
. . . . "HOT STUFF" WILL EXPLODE - WHEN THE ARCTIC BECOMES - "A BLUE OCEAN" - BY 2022, CAUSING . . . .
. . . . "THE HELL OF ALL HELLS ON EARTH" BY 2025-2030, AT THE LATEST!
KEY POINT: CONSIDER THE MASSIVE RISE IN TEMPERATURES IN SIBERIA, WINTER 2018, OF 126.4 F IN TWO WEEKS! WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT THIS WAS CAUSED BY? TRUMP VISITING SIBERIA, AND HIS "BS FOR THE BILLIONAIRES" HEATING UP SIBERIA? MAYBE, BUT NOT EVEN THIS IS LIKELY, IN MY OPINION, OF COURSE!
NOW IMAGINE ALL OF THE ICE BEING GONE, AND HOW MUCH OF THE "METHANE HYDRATES" IN THE MASSIVE FROZEN PERMAFROST (SEE PURPLE PERMAFROST MAP ABOVE), MAY BE RELEASED.
NOW CONSIDER THAT WITH ONLY ROUGHLY 3-14% OF THE SIBERIAN METHANE HYDRATES BEING RELEASED, THE 12/2016 STUDY: "METHANE HYDRATES: KILLER CAUSE OF THE EARTH'S GREATEST MASS EXTINCTION" CONCLUDES:
"Global warming triggered by the massive release of carbon dioxide may be catastrophic, but the release of methane from hydrate may be apocalyptic."
SIGNIFICANT SCIENTIFIC PROOF OF THE CLATHRATE GUN FIRING, JULY 2017, WHEN I CALLED IT: 2/13/19 Permafrost Melting FINALLY Receiving More Attention - Still BS for The Billionaires - But Some Science Added In! A new study, suggests that permafrost is melting much faster than model forecasts - NO SHIT!
The problem with the study, is if you "know anything about permafrost melting and the massive methane releases I have documented," you know when I tell you that their study period ends - 2016 - It is AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MASSIVE METHANE RELEASES documented by Semiltov in Sept/Oct of 2016; it is before the Scientific study documenting 7,000, with an estimate of 100,000 Siberian Methane Pingos - coupled with 1,000 times normal METHANE READINGS on the Yamal Peninsula(Summer 2017); this recent study ended two years before Dr. Guy McPherson notes a 150 km wide methane pool being spotted from space (?Summer 2018); this recent study ended before the expansion of the Massive Siberian Permafrost Melting Caused / Massive Methane and Carbon Producing - Hellmouth Crater, summer 2017; this recent study ended before the Massive Methane Caused BIG RED TA BLOBS on the TA Maps page above, I documented 11/7/17, along with the MEGA METHANE DRIVEN BIG RED TA BLOBS on Feb 24-28, 2018 (see the TA Maps page above); this study ended two years before the amazing rise in temperatures in Siberia, Jan 2018, by 126.4 F, from -88, to +38.4 F, in two weeks, DUE TO THIS MASSIVE GENERAL RELEASE OF SIBERIAN METHANE DOCUMENTED BY THE TA MAPS; this recent study on Siberian Methane ended three years before the MASSIVE METHANE - BIG RED BLOBS - I documented from Nov 2019, through today, on this page, the conclusion pages and on the Methane Maps Page; and this "recent methane study" ended - before all of the EXTENSIVE EVIDENCE of MASSIVE SIBERIAN AND ARCTIC METHANE RELEASES that has occurred since this "recent study" ended, which was in 2016! SO THE DATA and study, although documenting how off the models are! Is itself outdated, as the MASSIVE SIBERIAN METHANE RELEASES, started at the end of the study - 2016!)
"HOT STUFF" WILL CREATE - ANNUALLY - MANY - "THE MONSTER SUPER STORMS" - WITH WINDS REGULARLY 220 MPH PLUS, TYPHOON HAIYAN SIZE AND MUCH LARGER! SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER THAN CURRENT SUPER STORMS, AND HORRIFIC STORM SURGE, BY 2025- 2030! COUPLED WITH SIGNIFICANT SEA LEVEL RISE!

Parts of Alaska Have No Sea Ice For the First Time Ever As Temperatures in the Region Hit Record Highs
BY MADELINE FITZGERALD
AUGUST 7, 2019
Alaska has seen the lowest levels of sea ice ever this summer as record temperatures and wildfires hit the region with some areas completely ice free — an event which has never occurred so early in the year and has ramifications for the arctic climate and the Earth as a whole.
Compared to all other recorded years of research, this August has the lowest levels of arctic sea ice ever, according to Mark Serreze, the director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC).
“Basically, if you look at Point Barrow — the northernmost point of Alaska — there’s probably no sea ice within 300 to 350 miles right now,” says Serreze. Historically, he says, at this time of year there should still be some ice close to or along the coast of Alaska, not hundreds of miles away.
According to Serreze, sea ice is viewed as an indicator of other climate issues. “So what we’re seeing is that because the sea is disappearing is very much in agreement with the fact that everything is warming up in the Arctic,” he said. “The atmosphere is warming. The oceans are warming. The sea ice is getting hit by both sides [of climate change.]”
"THE BIG ONE" - "ARCTIC SEA ICE EXTENT" IS FREE FALLING! "BLUE OCEAN ARCTIC" 2019? BY 2022 AT THE LATEST! MAYBE "ICE FREE 2019!" BURN US UP DONNIE!
8/6/19 BLUE OCEAN ARCTIC 2019?
"THE BIG ONE" - "ARCTIC SEA ICE EXTENT" - WILL IT GO TO ZERO THIS YEAR? BY 2022 - FOR SURE, MAYBE - "ICE FREE" - LESS THAN 1 MILLION SQ KILOMETERS, THIS YEAR!
“What happens in the Arctic, does NOT stay in the Arctic.”
– Paul Beckwith, Climate Systems Scientist
What is the Blue Ocean Event (BOE)?
One of the big questions about global heating is when — or if — the Arctic will be ice-free each summer. Scientists have recently come to refer to this as a blue ocean event. As Arctic sea ice gets thinner and thinner, a blue ocean event looks more imminent every year. Generally scientists define a blue ocean event as a complete absence of Arctic sea ice (a common threshold is when the area is less than 1 million sq. km.). This would allow the heat of the sun to fully penetrate the open waters of the Arctic.
There is no question that Arctic ice is in serious decline. According to Wikipedia, “observation with satellites shows that Arctic sea ice area, extent, and volume have been in decline for a few decades. Sometime during the 21st century, sea ice may effectively cease to exist during the summer. Sea ice extent is defined as the area with at least 15% ice cover. The amount of multi-year sea ice in the Arctic has declined considerably in recent decades. In 1988, ice that was at least 4 years old accounted for 26% of the Arctic’s sea ice. By 2013, ice of that age was only 7% of all Arctic sea ice.”
In the following video Paul Beckwith introduces the BOE concept and shows several resources that scientists use for monitoring the ice such as NASA Worldview. University of California, Irvine PhD student Zachary Labealso posts updates on arctic sea ice and provides list of charts and graphs anyone can use to check out this data for themselves.
It is thought that Arctic ice melt beyond a certain point will not regenerate. There is an ongoing debate as to whether the Arctic Ocean has already passed this “tipping point.” A tipping point is defined as a threshold breached for abrupt and irreversible change. In any case, it is a dangerous tipping point to approach at all. Arctic sea ice is melting at its fastest rate in 1,500 years and the warmer winters are suggesting disastrous changes to come.
However, a BOE is not considered a complete meltdown, just an indication of an impending one. A BOE would happen in the summer according to polar researchers and the ice could still refreeze in the winter. If the ice becomes unable to refreeze in the winter, we will soon be in a new world. It would be a worst-case scenario never seen in recorded human history.
If we allow all the ice to melt, there will be nothing to prevent the arctic waters from rising above freezing. The amount of energy absorbed by melting ice is as much as it takes to heat an equivalent mass of water from zero to 80°C. This latent heat effect of increasing open water pools, known as polynyas, will produce knock-on cascading warming for the globe and weather chaos. This means, in effect, that the Northern Hemsphere’s air conditioner would fail. We would quite literally lose our cool.
It would also mean the loss of the ancient lands of the ice and snow from which our ancestors immigrated(video) that has served us for 11,000 relatively stable years of the Holocene. Knowing that we are in any way approaching this dangerous point of no return should be enough to jolt anyone into action toward mitigating climate change, implementing sustainable economies (video), and saving the Arctic.
Melting ice dramatically reduces albedo and accelerates the rate of warming in the Arctic. The reduced albedo effect due to vanishing sea ice is already responsible for about 25 percent of global warming, according to Jennifer Francis, a research professor at Rutgers University. The more the ice melts the more algae blooms take over and create what is known as watermelon snow. This is just another indication of the many feedbacks at work here.
We’re already getting hotter because sea ice is shrinking. NASA reported that winter Arctic sea ice extent has already hit an all-time low. Arctic sea ice figures and graphs show this happening at an unexpected rate. The summer of 2012 is on record as the lowest in year-to-year Arctic sea ice extent.
However, it is worth noting that the extent (video) is likely a more deceptive measurement than ever before because the ice itself is now thin, young, spread out by winds, and buffeted by ocean currents. It is likely to look bigger than it is because of this and because it has lost significant volume. Most of the multiyear ice is now gone. It is also important to understand and also monitor the ice volume or thickness also known as concentration, which is often overlooked. NSIDC provides a daily updated concentration report.
NOAA released their 2018 Arctic Report Card back in December with some fairly stark warnings about the status of that region. Since then further updates have suggested that this year could be one of the most precarious for Summer Arctic Sea Ice, says David Borlace of Just Have a Think. In the following video the latest update on Arctic sea ice loss discusses what’s happening in the Arctic and why scientists are so concerned:
Why is the Ice Melting?
The shrinking sea ice is clearly and simply caused by rising global temperatures that stem from the burning of fossil fuels, such as oil, gas and coal, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
Also, it is important to note that just because it’s cold outside or we get a snow storm, doesn’t mean the polar regions are not warming overall and in decline. This article discusses how it happens that a warming Arctic is linked to extreme cold and heavy snowfall in the U.S.
Founded in 2007 by James Balog, the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) is an innovative, long-term photography program that integrates art and science to give a “visual voice” to the planet’s changing ecosystems. This project has resulted in thousands of incredible images documenting this changing landscape and the loss of ice around the world.
The EIS project provides video and expertly photographed footage of what is happening in places most of us will never be able to visit because they are so distant, cold, and remote. There are two powerful documentary films about the project, including Extreme Ice (video) and Chasing Ice (video).
What is Polar Amplification?
Sea ice changes have been identified as a mechanism for polar amplification. According to Wikipedia, paleoclimatology records show “evidence of polar amplification, both from the Arctic and the Antarctic. Polar amplification is the phenomenon that any change in the net radiation balance tends to produce a larger change in temperature near the poles than the planetary average.” It is the mechanism by which the poles warm at faster rates than at mid-latitudes. It is heavily influenced by various feedback loops. The Arctic is warming up at least twice as fast as the rest of the world. Paul Beckwith says it might be as much as 3-5 times faster (video).
Recent studies have hypothesized that Arctic amplification, i.e. the enhanced warming of the Arctic region compared to the rest of the globe, will cause changes in mid-latitude weather over the twenty-first century. Elizabeth Barnes of Colorado State and collaborators did climate model projections of arctic warming (and sea ice loss) and how it affects atmospheric circulation over North America. Arctic temperature anomalies are currently 7.6°C above the 1979-2000 base according to Climate Reanalyzer.
Without the Ice our oceans will heat up far more rapidly than they ever have since Homo sapiens arrived. We will lose our cool if we don’t SAVE THE ARCTIC.
When is the First BOE Expected?
This is where it gets really tricky. Apparently, predicting when this will happen not only requires significant data modeling, but also a crystal ball. One study on this topic said if the world warms above 2°C degrees this century (note: for warming above 2°C, frequent ice-free conditions could be expected, potentially for several months per year), the Arctic will likely have a three-month, ice-free period each summer by 2050. But many argue this is much too conservative.
2041 was founded by polar explorer, environmental leader and public speaker Robert Swan, OBE, the first person in history to walk to both the North and South Poles as the date by which humanity will see devastating changes if we don’t act now. 2040 is the date often provided in the research appearing in the last couple years. Other researchers are saying we certainly don’t have until 2040 or 2050 and the latest research says it’s coming much earlier than previously predicted.
For example, the US Navy researchers predicted a sea-ice-free Arctic by the summer of 2016. According to this report we are already over due for this event. Furthermore, eminent Polar explorer and Climate Scientist, Professor Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University predicted in 2012 that the Arctic would be ice-free in the summer by 2016, plus or minus 3 years. We are still inside that range and could see the first BOE yet in 2019. Paul Beckwith, Climate Systems Scientist at the University of Ottawa, has said that 2022 is the year we might see the first BOE.
“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. 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.” – Paul Beckwith, Climate Systems Scientist

Greenland's ice wasn't supposed to melt like last week until 2070
BY THOMAS MOTE, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR — 08/04/19 03:00 PM EDT 2,195
During the past week, temperatures at the highest reaches of the Greenland ice sheet rose above freezing, melting snow at the Summit Station (10,550 feet above sea level) for the first time since July 2012 and perhaps only the third time in the last seven centuries.
Across lower elevations around the margins of the ice sheet, bare glacial ice melted at an unprecedented rate, losing 12.5 billion tons of water on Thursday alone, with daily losses likely exceeding any point in at least the past 70 years.
The Greenland ice sheet covers an area the size of Alaska with enough ice to raise global sea level by more than 20 feet. Greenland gains ice each winter from compacting snow accumulation and loses ice from melt water and icebergs discharged to the ocean. A dry, warm spring this year left a thin snow cover over bare glacial ice. Spring warming followed by a large melt event in June led scientist Jason Box of the Geological Survey of Greenland to predict record ice losses this year. The peak of the melt season passed in mid-July with more typical summer conditions, but the past week again saw a large increase in the area and intensity of melt across the Northern Hemisphere’s remaining ice sheet.
This latest heat wave was particularly unusual as a dome of warm air arrived from the east, associated with the remnants of the record-setting European heat wave last month. Most large melt events on Greenland involve warm, humid air masses arriving from North America and the western Atlantic Ocean. This surge of warm air started in North Africa, traveled north across Europe and then westward across the North Atlantic Ocean toward and across Greenland. Air masses originating over North Africa are known to reach Greenland — Saharan dust has been traced to the ice sheet — but this recent air mass was exceptionally warm. By following the path of the heat wave, scientists predicted the extensive melt several days in advance. Air temperatures at Summit hovered near or above freezing for more than 11 hours on Wednesday, which is nearly twice as long as the last melt event there in 2012.
Satellite data that I process for the National Snow and Ice Data Center showed more than 60 percent of the surface area of the ice sheet meltinglast Wednesday. While this is a smaller melt area than in mid-July 2012, the melt extent was second only to 2012 for late July. More detailed satellite images show that snow has melted from a large area along the western edge of the ice sheet, leaving more exposed ice than in 2012 in several areas. Numerous meltwater rivers and lakes, and dark, dust-encrusted ice reached areas higher on the ice sheet. Images comparing summer 2018 and summer 2019 show a larger area of bare ice and meltwater lakes this summer. Several of the Danish Meteorological Institute weather stations on the ice sheet have recorded greater melt rates in 2019 than in 2012.
In July 2012, the public watched video of melt water runoff raging down the Watson River, near Greenland’s main international airport at Kangerlussuaq. The flood waters destroyed the bridge’s approaches and prevented travel across the river, which have since been rebuilt. This past week, journalist Laurie Garrett recorded similar images of Watson River flooding. Meanwhile, further north near the U.S. Thule Air Force Base, less than 1,000 miles from the North Pole, scientist Pete Akers at the Institute of Geosciences and Environment in Grenoble reported temperatures above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, ice margin collapse, meltwater pouring into new channels and into the ocean.
While the ice losses on any individual day make only modest contributions to global sea level, the increasing frequency of heat waves and large melt events across Greenland during the past two decades contribute significantly to sea level rise. When the entire surface of the ice sheet melted in July 2012, climatologists and glaciologists told the public that these melt events will become more common in the future. While some recent years, such as 2017, have seen more modest melt seasons, we again witnessed record-setting losses from the ice sheet this summer.
Mass losses from Greenland this past week were already approaching levels not expected until 2070 based on the best available models. It is still too early to tell if the ice losses for the summer will exceed the losses in 2012, but it is clear that the Greenland ice sheet is rapidly responding to climate change, even faster than many scientists expected. These rapid changes point to the necessity for action on climate change and for improved observing systems to monitor the ice sheet.
Thomas Mote is a distinguished research professor of Geography and Atmospheric Science at the University of Georgia. He has published research for the past 25 years on Arctic climate change and the use of regional climate models and remote sensing to monitor the Greenland ice sheet. He provides the processed satellite data for the Greenland Today website at the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

"The Limits to Growth: A Final Warning" tells you about the authors work since the early seventies, my work since 1980, and the stage of the "science of overpopulation analysis." Dr. Jorgen Randers, "2052: A Global Forecast for the Next Forty Years," and Lester Brown, "World on The Edge," have portended the fate of the world, due to overpopulation since the seventies! However limited I see their understanding of "abrupt climate change."
