CRITIQUE OF "SAM CARANA'S" NEW POST - ITS OFFICIAL - JULY - WAS THE HOTTEST MONTH IN RECORDED HUMAN HISTORY! GREENLAND AND ARCTIC ICE MELTING RAPIDLY! OCEANS ARE "ON FIRE!" "THE BIG ONE" PLUNGES! SUPER STORM SEASON STARTS! "THANK GOD!" - - "It Is THE END
"THE BIG ONE" - "ARCTIC SEA ICE EXTENT" - "CONTINUES THE BIG PLUNGE!"
8/2/19 ACCORDING TO SAM CARANA'S POST OF 7/30/19 (WHO ARE YOU? SAM IS NOT - OUT! CAN'T BLAME YOU, OR ALL OF YOU, THE WORLD IS EVIL!) - Arctic sea ice minimum extent typically occurs about half September. In 2012, minimum extent was reached on September 17, 2012, when extent was 3.387 million km².
On July 28, 2019, Arctic sea ice extent was 6.576 million km². How much extent do you think there will be by September 17, 2019? From July 28, 2019, to September 17, 2019, that's a period of 52 days during which a lot of melting can occur. Could there be a Blue Ocean Event in 2019, with virtually all sea ice disappearing in the Arctic?
Consider this. Extent was 6.926 million km² on September 17, 1989. Extent was 3.387 million km² on September 17, 2012, so 3.539 million km² had disappeared in 23 years. Over those years, more ice extent disappeared than what was left on September 17, 2012.
The question is how much sea ice extent will be left when it will reach its minimum this year, i.e. in September 2019. The red dashed line on the image at the top continues the path of the recent fall in sea ice extent, pointing at zero sea ice in September 2019.
That may sound alarming, but there is good reason to be alarmed.
Above map shows temperature on Greenland for July 31, 2019, with temperatures at one location as high as 23.2°C or 73.8°F and at another location - in the north - as high as 14.2°C or 57.6°F.
The map on the right shows sea surface temperature anomalies compared to 1961-1990 as on July 29, 2019. Note the high anomalies in the areas where the sea ice did disappear during the past few months. The reason for these high anomalies is that the buffer has disappeared that previously had kept consuming heat in the process of melting.
Where that buffer is gone, the heat has to go somewhere else, so it will be absorbed by the water and it will also speed up heating of the atmosphere over the Arctic.
Sea ice melting is accelerating for a number of reasons:
As the Arctic is heating up faster than the rest of the world, it is also more strongly affected by the resulting extreme weather events, such as heatwaves, fires, strong winds, rain and hail storms, and such events can strongly speed up the melting of the sea ice.
All around Greenland, sea ice has now virtually disappeared. This is the more alarming considering that the thickest sea ice was once located north of Greenland. This indicates that the buffer is almost gone.
Why is disappearance of Arctic sea ice so important? Hand in hand with albedo loss, there is loss of the buffer (feedbacks #1, #14 and more). As long as there is sea ice in the water, this sea ice will keep absorbing heat as it melts, so the temperature will not rise at the sea surface. 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.
Once the sea ice is gone, further heat must go elsewhere. This heat will raise the temperature of the water and will also make the atmosphere heat up faster. More evaporation will occur once the sea ice is gone, thus further heating up the atmosphere (technically know as latent heat of vaporization). As temperatures in the Arctic are rising faster than at the Equator, the Jet Stream will change, making it easier for warm air to enter the Arctic.
In the video below, Paul Beckwith further discusses Arctic albedo change and clouds.
As sea ice disappears, more clouds will form over the Arctic, which will reflect more sunlight into space, but which will also make that less outward IR radiation can escape into space over the Arctic, with the net heating effect of clouds likely to be that it will result in further heating of the atmosphere (feedbacks #23 and #25).
As the buffer disappears that until now has consumed huge amounts of heat, the temperature of the water of the Arctic Ocean will rise even more rapidly. There is a huge danger that further heat will reach methane hydrates at the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean, causing them to get destabilized and release methane (feedback #16).
(SAM - THE METHANE IS ALREADY BEING RELEASED IN GIGATONS - THE PROOF I OFFER INCLUDES:
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!)
Ominously, high methane levels were recorded at Barrow, Alaska, at the end of July 2019. (Where are these OMINOUSLY HIGH METHANE LEVELS ON THE CAMS COPERNICUS METHANE MAPS? NOT - RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED!)
Huge releases of seafloor methane alone could make marine stratus clouds disappear (SAM GIVE ME CREDIT FOR BURNING OFF THE MARINE CLOUD LAYER - PLEASE - "HOT STUFF!"), as described in an earlier post, and this clouds feedback could cause a further 8°C global temperature rise. Indeed, a rapid temperature rise of as much as 18°C could result by the year 2026 due to a combination of elements, including albedo changes, loss of sulfate cooling, and methane released from destabilizing hydrates contained in sediments at the seafloor of oceans.

LOVE YOUR WORK - SAM CARANA - WHOEVER YOU ARE! ONE DISAGREEMENT - IS THE ATTRIBUTION ANALYSIS OF THE LIKELY DRIVERS OF THE 18C OR 32.4F RISE IN GMAT (GLOBAL MEAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES) BY 2026. AS YOU KNOW, I GIVE MOST OF THE CREDIT TO MY SWEETHEART, "HOT STUFF," "THE SIBERIAN METHANE MONSTER," "THE CLATHRATE GUN FIRING," GIVEN THESE CONCLUSIONS FROM THE FOLLOWING STUDY ON THE PERMIAN EXTINCTION (12/2016):
Methane Hydrate: Killer cause of Earth's greatest mass extinction
"Based on measurements of gases trapped in biogenic and abiogenic calcite, the release of methane (of ∼3–14% of total C stored) from permafrost and shelf sediment methane hydrate is deemed the ultimate source and cause for the dramatic life-changing global warming (GMAT > 34 °C) and oceanic negative-carbon isotope excursion observed at the end Permian. Global warming triggered by the massive release of carbon dioxide may be catastrophic, but the release of methane from hydrate may be apocalyptic."
THESE SCIENTISTS ATTRIBUTE - THE EARTH'S GREATEST MASS EXTINCTION - THE PERMIAN EXTINCTION - DUE TO THE RELEASE OF - ONLY - ROUGHLY 3-14% OF THE TOTAL CARBON STORED IN SIBERIA'S METHANE HYDRATES - TO THE LIFE-CHANGING GLOBAL WARMING OF GREATER THAN 34 C - THAT IS 93.2 F - RISE IN GLOBAL MEAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES (GMAT)!
OMG! OMG! A 93.2 F RISE IN GLOBAL MEAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES - WHICH CAUSED THE "EXTINCTION OF ALL COMPLEX LIFE ON EARTH FOR 11 MILLION YEARS!" ADD THE IMPLOSION AND EXPLOSION OF THE WORLD'S 450, HEADING TO 510, NUCLEAR REACTORS, AND I ARGUE THAT IT IS EASY TO ASSUME THAT. . . .

"HOT STUFF LIVES!" - SHE HAS ARISEN! - JUST WAIT TO YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE ARCTIC BECOMES A "BLUE OCEAN" BY 2022, AT THE LATEST, BUT AS SAM CORRECTLY NOTES, MAYBE THIS YEAR. WITHOUT A CLEARER UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THEY CALCULATE - 15% OF THE PIXEL AREA - AS COVERED - IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET TO A CLOSER ESTIMATE THAN THIS. BUT AS SAM CORRECTLY DETAILS HERE - ONCE - ALL OF THE ICE IS GONE - "HOT STUFF" WILL HEAT UP THE SIBERIAN AND ARCTIC METHANE - AT AN EXPONENTIAL RATE THAT IS SIMPLY - OFF THE CHARTS!
AS THE AUTHORS FROM THE STUDY ON METHANE HYDRATES NOTE: GLOBAL WARMING FROM CARBON MAY BE CATASTROPHIC, BUT THE RELEASE OF METHANE HYDRATES - WHICH I SO EXTENSIVELY PROVIDE VISUAL PROOF OF HERE - MAY BE APOCALYPTIC!

July Was the Hottest Month in Human History
The climate disaster isn’t coming. It’s here. (Rolling Stone)
July 2019 is now the hottest month in recorded history, the U.N. confirmed on Thursday.
At a press conference in New York, U.N. Secretary General António Guterres announced that the month of July had reached 1.2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, a figure that “at least equaled if not surpassed the hottest month in recorded history,” according to data released by the World Meteorological Organization. Temperature information from July is still streaming in, but preliminary data show last month’s warmth is roughly on par, or perhaps slightly warmer than the previous record of July 2016.
In cities and towns around the world, record high temperatures outpaced record low temperatures on nearly a 3-to-1 basis during July, underscoring the fact that this crisis is being felt almost everywhere, by almost everyone.
But there’s an added madness to this crisis. In its annual Statistical Review of World Energy released a few weeks ago, the global oil giant BP confirmed that in 2018 the world burned the most fossil fuels of any year in history. In short: Our addiction to fossil fuels is getting worse and worse even as the planet gets hotter and hotter.
“If we do not take action on climate change now,” said Guterres, “these extreme weather events are just the tip of the iceberg.” Counting 2019, the five warmest years in recorded history have been the past five years.
Jean-Noël Thépaut, the head of the World Meteorological Organization’s climate service, told Rolling Stone the new record was “very disturbing.”
“As a citizen I am as concerned as anyone else with what is happening,” Thépaut said. “My children are experiencing extreme weather situations which did not exist when I was their age.”
The world’s current climate policies point to an unlivable future. Scientists are increasingly convinced that if warming rises above 1.5 degrees, cascading ecological and meteorological tipping points could threaten the stability of human civilization. The current level of action, if sustained, would result in global warming of about 3.3 degrees Celsius by the end of the century, and surpass 1.5 degrees as soon as 2030.
The frightening new milestone came amid an onslaught of extreme weather in July that, in some cases, inflicted permanent changes to the environment:
In Greenland, which is currently enduring its worst heat wave in recorded history, billions of tons of meltwater streamed into the oceans during July, permanently raising sea levels.
In Europe, new all-time national temperature records were broken in the U.K., Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and France – where Paris reached a sweltering 109 degrees Fahrenheit.
Satellite data showed the deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon is accelerating under the leadership of President Jair Bolsonaro, pushing the forest closer toward an irreversible tipping point that may lead to a widespread die-off of an irreplaceable ecosystem.
In India, the annual monsoon teetered on collapse, with 74 percent of days registering below normal rainfall – putting the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of subsistence farmers in jeopardy.
In the United States, the arrival of Hurricane Barry marked a new and unprecedented flood risk on the Mississippi River in New Orleans, the first time ever a spring flood season had carried over into hurricane season.
And across the Arctic, the warmth during July was staggering, especially in Alaska, Scandinavia, and Siberia. In the Arctic Ocean, sea ice hit a new all-time record low for the month.
With this kind of deadly, violent weather events already occurring during this hottest month in human history, it’s unclear just how much more warming the nations of the world can bear. Guterres is convening world leaders for an emergency climate summit in September in New York in the hopes that they will redouble their efforts to quickly transition away from fossil fuels.
For Alexandria Villaseñor, a 14-year-old youth climate striker who has staged weekly demonstrations outside the U.N. headquarters since December, that increased effort to tackle the defining issue of our time can’t come too soon.
“We’re headed for disaster. I don’t understand why everyone can’t see that,” Villaseñor told Rolling Stone. “I mean, what are we going to do? Break records every year until our planet is uninhabitable? I mean, when does it end? Does it end when we reduce emissions or does it end when we finally end? The Arctic is on fire, species are going extinct at a rate never seen before during the time of humans, kids have to be in the streets every single week.”
The new record is especially concerning to scientists because it happened in the absence of a strong El Niño, a periodic natural warming of the Pacific Ocean that tends to boost temperatures worldwide. The previous record, during July 2016, was set during one of the strongest El Niños ever measured.
That a new record was achieved without these extreme conditions “further demonstrates the relentless march upward of global temperatures driven by human emissions of greenhouse gases,” according to Zeke Hausfather, a climate scientist at the University of California-Berkeley, which maintains an independent global temperature record to that of the WMO.
For scientists who have dedicated their careers to finding and clearly explaining the stakes of this existential crisis, the new record is an exasperating confirmation of continued slow progress.
“The heat record doesn’t surprise me, it’s exactly what the science predicts,” said Sarah Myhre, a climate scientist and executive director of the Rowan Institute, an organization focused on justice and equity in climate solutions. “Violent and mediocre careerists, executives, and political leaders are profiteering off of the suffering of the children of the world, especially the children and families of the global south. Why do we continue to be surprised by the breaking heat records rather than the malicious and incompetent inaction by public leaders?”
The hottest month in history should make the stakes of our time crystal clear: Either we change everything, or the consequences of planetary warming will do that for us.
