The "doomsday clock" is still two-and-a-half minutes to midnight" http://thebulletin.org/clock/2017" rel="nofollow - http://thebulletin.org/clock/2017 but time is ticking and moving in the wrong direction. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_CeYOQ86Us" rel="nofollow - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_CeYOQ86Us After the visit of US foreign secretary Rex Tillerson to China Israeli News Live bring the news that there is troop-movement in Bejing. 

China must be getting tired of North Korea's testing of weapons. But China may be preparing to make its points clear towards the US in a "less friendly way". So far China did not choose military answers, tried to get more economic markets (via financial infrastructures, trade deals with a lot of countries). 

The US-Trump-administration seems to want more confrontation with both China and Iran. Both countries are working on answers-wich means escalation of war.

The war for Syria seems to escalete with more US troops getting involved. Growing chances that Russia (or Syria, Iran) may shoot down western or Israeli airplanes above Syria. The Yemen war is also escalating- https://southfront.org/footage-houthi-forces-launching-ballistic-missile-against-military-airbase-near-saudi-capital/" rel="nofollow - https://southfront.org/footage-houthi-forces-launching-ballistic-missile-against-military-airbase-near-saudi-capital/ . 

"Moderate al-quada linked rebels" can not start their offensive in Damascus without foreign aid. Houthi-rebels can not fire missiles on Riyaad without foreign aid.

North Korea is most likely preparing for a nuclear test far bigger than previous tests. Those tests did cause earthquakes in the region (the tests themselves with magnitudes M5+). http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/fail-or-succeed-the-next-north-korea-nuclear-test-could-be-a-disaster/article/2617762#!" rel="nofollow - http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/fail-or-succeed-the-next-north-korea-nuclear-test-could-be-a-disaster/article/2617762#!

Pandemics: 

With more cases of humans both with H5N1 and H7N9 maybe worth noting that even if these virusses do not go Human-to-Human (H2H) stay bird-to-human they still can cause a lot of cases.

On US-China relations: 

https://www.rt.com/news/381365-thaad-korea-disproportionate-lavrov/" rel="nofollow - https://www.rt.com/news/381365-thaad-korea-disproportionate-lavrov/

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-20/behind-smiles-china-prepares-worst-ready-counter-all-us-trade-penalties" rel="nofollow - http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-20/behind-smiles-china-prepares-worst-ready-counter-all-us-trade-penalties

Finally, in a parallel report from Axios, the website cites China expert Richard McGregor who lists 5 things he believes Xi wants from Trump in order to maintain cordial relations between the two nations:

  1. 1.Don't upend the status quo with North Korea: China's worst nightmare is that the regime would collapse and be subsumed by South Korea, which would make for a U.S.-ally on their border. It needs North Korea as a buffer state. Contra Washington conventional wisdom, the Chinese can't just snap their fingers and tell the North Koreans what to do. China and North Korea deeply distrust each other. So the Chinese hope Trump's tough talk is just bluster. (DJ-North Korea may already be close to collapse, from nuclear test that may go wrong to food-crises. When staying in North Korea means dying in North Korea you will see refugees)
  2.  
  3. 2.Avoid a confrontation in the South China Sea: Xi will likely deliver to Trump a quiet warning on the South China Sea. During his confirmation hearing, Rex Tillerson told Senators China needed to stop its island building there. The Chinese want Trump to understand they will defend their interests if the U.S. pushes back. (See our Facts Matter on the South China Sea.)

  4. 3.Stick to "One China": Regarding Taiwan, they want Trump to stick with the "One China" policy. Xi was furious when Trump took a call from Taiwan's president, and wouldn't speak with him over the phone until Trump agreed to support the status quo. (See our Facts Matter on the One China policy.)

  5. 4.No trade war: The Chinese, like everyone else, don't know what Trump might do on trade. They are closely following the reports about the tussle within the White House between nationalists (especially Bannon and Wilbur Ross) and the Goldman Sachs wing, led by Trump's chief economic advisor, Gary Cohn. As Axios revealed: trade in automobiles is the big sleeper issue.

  6. 5.The big picture: Xi wants a stable international environment that allows China to continue to develop and accumulate wealth and power. They abhor the prospect of military disruptions and interruptions to trade, with Xi going to Davos this year to sell China as an apostle of the open international order to all the folks Bannon would call "globalists." McGregor says China's ideal state for America is "slow and steady bourgeois decline." Anything too chaotic — Trump's MO, basically — hurts China.

China-US relation

https://www.superstation95.com/index.php/world/3522" rel="nofollow - https://www.superstation95.com/index.php/world/3522  :

While press reports put the best "face"  on Secretary Tillerson's meeting with China, skuttlebutt in the Pentagon claims it was "an unmitigated disaster."

China allegedly demanded the US immediately withdraw all its naval forces from the South China Sea and Tillerson flatly refused. The Chinese also allegedly told Tillerson that China has no way to stop North Korea from continuing to develop nuclear weapons and test missiles, to which Tillerson allegedly replied "don't piss on my leg and try to tell me it's raining."  Offended, China allegedly abruptly recessed the meeting.

Shortly thereafter, North Korea test-fired a new rocket engine, while Tillerson was still meeting with China, and later announced that they would launch nuclear weapons against the US, South Korea, and Japan "if a single bullet is fired by US and South Korean troops toward North Korea."

Commetary DJ: When the Trump-administration does not accept the present nuclear treaty with Iran Iran may (re)start its nuclear program (and the US and EU are not on one line).
China does not accept US weapon sales to Taiwan, the presence of US navy in the South China Sea.
Russia does not want Israel to sell weapons to Ukraine, attacking (pro)Iran forces in Syria (or Lebanon). For Russia-Iran-China (RIC) it is getting clear what they can expect from Trump. They proberbly co-ordinate a joined reaction in wich they will not wait for US/NATO initiatives. Russia moving into YPG held regions inside Syria fits that patern. (The Kurds have not forgotten that the US/NATO is on the Turkish side in the war against the PKK, the US helped the shah in Iran in his genocide on the Kurds before the islamic revolution.)

North Korea will continu its weaponsprogramm. Putting satelites in orbit, developing nuclear weapons. The expected nuclear test may cause "very severe damage" in a wide region inside North Korea. Possibly the biggest danger for North Korea is its present government.

The Trump-administration in the US beliefs in fossil fuels, wants to Make America Great Again. Stands behind Israel and wants to spent even more on the military. 

If you want to be "great", the only "superpower" you can not shy away for confrontations with rivals. 

Given the importance of the Middle East for oil. Also the possibility to involve strong partners-NATO, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan I (DJ) think this could be a possible scenario: 

-Turkey can be pulled into the NATO allience when the Kurds can be used as "a foreign enemy" (supported by Syria, Russia). NATO countries can be forced to come to assist Turkey with its fight against "foreign invaders" (PKK) in Turkey and YPG etc. outside Turkey (that also would provide an excuse for a new invasion in Iraq).

-To stop any nuclear plans from Iran Israel, Saudi Arabia with US help will be enabled to take action in Iran. Pakistan already has troops in Saudi Arabia to help that country with border security close to Yemen. 

-The US wants to show strenght, the Black Sea mostly will become NATO territory. Ukraine, Georgia could become NATO members. At the same time NATO forces will be active in Libya. 

-Since Trump wants to show the world how great he is-also hit-and-run actions in North Korea, South China Sea etc. (Allies South Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand-but an objective will be to get the Philipines on the side of the west, regain influence in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia). 

The idea behind this scenario is that Russia-Iran-China (R.I.C.) can act strong because of weakness from the west. Trump believes the west is stronger and R-I-C know that, they want to avoid major wars-and their coalition is not that strong. 

What may go wrong ? Russia and Iran will defend their positions in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan-even the EU-may not want to be pulled in major plans to get Putin back in his"cage".

Russia, China (and other BRICS-nations) believe in a multi-polar world not in a US leadership. 

Also such a large scale military scenario is very expensive. Even for the US itself it may be asking to much (corruption and military mix given the hierarchy and amount of money involved). 

North Korea may be able to do a lot of damage (EMP-satelites ? Nuclear polution ? Blowing up dams to flood South Korea ?)

It would provide Russia with an excuse to move into the Ukraine.

From about 1500 BC to 1200 BC, the Mediterranean region played host to a complex cosmopolitan and globalized world-system. It may have been this very internationalism that contributed to the apocalyptic disaster that ended the Bronze Age. When the end came, the civilized and international world of the Mediterranean regions came to a dramatic halt in a vast area stretching from Greece and Italy in the west to Egypt, Canaan, and Mesopotamia in the east. Large empires and small kingdoms collapsed rapidly. With their end came the world’s first recorded Dark Ages. It was not until centuries later that a new cultural renaissance emerged in Greece and the other affected areas, setting the stage for the evolution of Western society as we know it today. Professor Eric H. Cline of The George Washington University will explore why the Bronze Age came to an end and whether the collapse of those ancient civilizations might hold some warnings for our current society.

Considered for a Pulitzer Prize for his recent book 1177 BC, Dr. Eric H. Cline is Professor of Classics and Anthropology and the current Director of the Capitol Archaeological Institute at The George Washington University. He is a National Geographic Explorer, a Fulbright scholar, an NEH Public Scholar, and an award-winning teacher and author. He has degrees in archaeology and ancient history from Dartmouth, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania; in May 2015, he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree (honoris causa) from Muhlenberg College. Dr. Cline is an active field archaeologist with 30 seasons of excavation and survey experience.

VT did mention more often the use of small nuclear weapons (in Iraq 2003, Yemen, Syria and there may be some proof in both images, radiationmeasurements, ground samples (when possible). The reason that the usage of small nuclear weapons is not main news could be that all parties involved would like to denie the story ? It is not unthinkable that Ukraine could have SS-21 missiles from the Soviet Union time.

Unlike others, I do NOT expect an Arctic Ice Free Summer this year. We should have 15% of the Winter Ice come October. But with 85% of the ice gone, we should see a massive increase in Methane release. Remember this summer in the northern hemisphere we will start seeing localized temperature peaks at inland sites of 105 to 117 degrees Fahrenheit (DJ 40 to 47 C) within 2000 miles of the Equator give or take a few hundred miles.

As previously stated, THIS WILL BE THE BEGINNING OF WHAT I AM CALLING THE TIME OF TROUBLES.

In 2018 the heating will include another thousand miles to the North.

in 2019 another thousand miles or more. It is coming and we can not stop it. The Arctic Ice will be gone by 2019. Civilization will most likely be gone by 2020 if we do not take action now to cool the planet. We can always hope for volcanic action increase, especially from BIG volcanoes like Mount Pinatubo, as they are the ones to put sulfur into the skies. (Sulfur blocks out the sunlight and thus provides for global cooling.)

NK may draw wrong conclusions also. http://defconwarningsystem.com/2017/03/25/what-a-korean-war-could-look-like/" rel="nofollow - http://defconwarningsystem.com/2017/03/25/what-a-korean-war-could-look-like/

DJ, the international community is aware of the dangers an escalation in Korea can bring. There will be more testing, exercises, THAAD etc. So far each escalation brought (indirect) communication on how to react on the event. The number of countries involved stayed limited. Japan and South Korea leave military action on the US. China and Russia would like to have more control on NK. North Korea itself has a clear (but insane ?) leadership. 


Another nuclear (underground ?) test in NK is expected the coming week. The test is expected to be much stronger then previous tests. It is not unthinkable that this test could go (very) wrong; fast way-causing a large earthquake (earlier test did cause M5/M5.5 range quakes), The explosion itself is supposed to be in a tunnel-blocked by concrete. But when the blockage blows away what was meant to be an underground nuclear explosion could come above ground-with lots of radiation problems and possibly much widespread damage. In short NK could blow itself up. 


A slow way in wich things go wrong is leakage of radiation into water, atmosphere, destabelizing coalmines in the region. It could produce seismic pressure wich could result in an earthquake in the region. 


The test itself is already a big problem. Working on missiles and (war)satellites is another problem. 


How do you deal with a nuclear armed mad man keeping a country hostage-in wich most of that country follow their leader blindly ? Agression proberbly creates more madness. The Chinese aproach of talking may be the only solution when you want to avoid serious problems. "Limited international action" could be possible when the US, China and Russia would discus it. Taking out NK satellites could be a step. When THAAD indeed is meant to keep NK under control China and Russia may be interested in limiting strike-ability from NK. 


Economic "weapons" could maybe convince NK to change its way. Could a de-militarized Korea be united ? Would the US, China, Russia guarantee the safety and neutrality of Korea when that would make the region (and world) more safe ? More weapons destabilize the region further-it is time for good communication with the US, China and Russia and make a plan.

^Thanks, Dutch Josh, great information as always!!  

The increase in global temperature is causing the Arctic jet stream to behave strangely, it whips around and dips far into countries of the Northern hemisphere, resulting in the turbulent and unpredictable weather we are encountering.  

This is high-level stuff, but it explains it perfectly:  

http://https://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2017/0327/How-climate-change-may-be-driving-extreme-weather" rel="nofollow - http://https://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2017/0327/How-climate-change-may-be-driving-extreme-weather

The jet stream, which Mann describes as a "ribbon-like air current that travels eastward … in the lower part of the atmosphere where weather happens," exists because of the difference in air temperatures between the subtropic and subarctic regions. 

The eastward-flowing air isn't one completely steady band. Slow-moving waves that travel from north to south often appear across the ribbon of air. It is those particularly large undulations, called Rossby waves, that researchers link with extreme weather, because of the intensely low or high pressure systems they bring with them.

In a warming world, these Rossby waves are getting stuck in one place for a long period of time, Mann and his colleagues say. And this means that a region under the low pressure part of these waves will experience intense, prolonged rainfall resulting in flooding. The regions under the high pressure systems will be stuck with hot, dry conditions conducive to drought and wildfires.

What's making these waves static, or at least slowing them down? Mann points to the warming Arctic. The tropics aren't warming as much as the Arctic, so the temperature gradient from north-to-south is less extreme. As the temperature differences that create the jet stream decline, the jet stream's dynamics change.

The western mass media tend to "bad Assad-bad Russia" stories while reality is more complex. In my opinion we are in an undecleared World War 3 scenario with "the West" at war with Russia-Iran-China (RIC) and a.o. Ukraine, Syria/Iraq-Yemen, Afghanistan and Korea as the frontlines.

(DJ) Russia, Iran, Syria will increase efforts to gain grounds as much as possible in the short term. NATO forces are already inside Syria; US, French troops in eastern Syria with Kurdish fighters in the Raqqa-region. UK special forces also involved ? Turkish troops are fighting Kurdish groups in northern Syria. Several NATO countries, KSA, Israel have aircraft in the region. 

US is preparing large scale troop movements from near Beirut-Lebanon and Aqaba-Jordan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIm98J2czb0" rel="nofollow - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIm98J2czb0 (Israeli News Live) Also in Jordan there are already several thousend US, UK etc troops.

(JD) Debka claims Russia is giving Israel (and the US) "room to attack inside Syria" (both Hizbollah and SAA targets. ) I (DJ) think they have it very wrong. Russia has done so much to get its position in Syria, Iran wants to protect shia-muslems and a connection to Lebanon. Russia, Iran, Syria will not allow US/Israel actions when they can stop it. 

On http://www.defconwarningsystem.com/phpBB3/" rel="nofollow - http://www.defconwarningsystem.com/phpBB3/ there is a discussion about the possibility of "limited war" between the US and Russia (or Israel and Iran ?). CHinese leader Xi is visiting the US these days. Proberbly that could stop escalations for the moment. Unless North Korea does it nuclear test.

Pepe Escobar: The Russian S-400s in Syria could have easily disabled those lumbering Tomahawks.

The order came from above – and they didn’t.

The Pentagon gave Moscow the heads up because they knew what was at stake.

So Moscow decided to back off - in exchange of SOMETHING every one of the key players is mum about.

The Tomahawk show was the Pentagon way of smashing the credibility of the Russian Ministry of Defense – which explained the “chemical attack” was actually the result of the bombing of a secret Jabhat al-Nusra warehouse manufacturing sarin gas.

Now the Russian Ministry of Defense is naked.

At this time, we are holding at DEFCON 5. We continue to monitor, and are waiting to see what Russia will do.

Although Russia has stated that this represents and escalation, we do not believe that this will be more than a minor incident. We do believe Russia will do something, but may be more on the diplomatic front rather than militarily.

We do not believe there is any cause for undue public concern at this time.

We will continue to monitor and report as necessary throughout the night.


(DJ: The US informed Russia about the coming strikes. Russia had a chance to move their personal from the airfield(s). Pepe Escobar suggests that there was a deal with Russia and for that reason Russia did not shoot down the US cruise misiles.)

From David Wasdell of the   http://www.apollo-gaia.org/" rel="nofollow - Apollo-Gaia Project ;
“It is with the utmost concern that we draw your attention to the fundamental methodological flaw in the determination of the value of Climate Sensitivity that is embedded in the Summary for Policymakers of the Scientific Workgroup of the 5th Assessment Report of the IPCC. The error was replicated in the Reports of Workgroups 2 and 3 and carried forward into the Synthesis Report. It has been used as the given basis for every subsequent publication. Our radical analysis of Climate Dynamics has generated a new and robust value of “Earth System Sensitivity” which has profound implications for:

• The relationship between temperature change and cumulative carbon emissions.
• The calculation of “available carbon budget”.
• The evaluation of the INDCs.
• The terms of reference of COP21 in Paris (30 November – 11 December 2015).
• The future global strategy for climate stabilisation.”

Record Rates of Accumulation

These new records come following two years of record rates of atmospheric CO2 accumulation. According to NOAA,  https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/gr.html" rel="nofollow - carbon dioxide accumulated by 3.03 parts per million during 2015 and by 3.00 parts per million during 2016 . These now represent the two fastest rates of carbon dioxide accumulation in the climate record to date. By comparison, the substantial warming at the end of the last ice age was accompanied by an approximate 0.01 part per million per year rate of CO2 increase averaged over 10,000 years.

DJ: There is a risk that the US will act on its own in South Korea before the G20-top/Putin-Trump meeting coming Friday in Hamburg Germany. This G20-top may result in forming aliences in several conflicts-not solutions. (Most likely the US will use cruisemissiles against several military targets in NK-China and Russia have had all the time to prepare for that-and in trying to "controll the conflict" may shoot most of the US missiles out of the sky (like Russia did in Syria). The messeage for the US will be: 1- Russia and China stand united on NK. 2-No actions on NK without Russia and China from anybody. 3-Russia/China have the capacity to shoot down US missiles-and do so when they think it is needed. 4-For NK the message is also clear; Russia and China can de-escalate but also could give the US the Okay to do "their thing". 

Major risks are; misinterpretation by the US-shooting down US missiles is not an attack on the US military. NK could "go wild" were Russia and China may need to do much more-worst case invade NK. 

Why would Russia and China react that way ? They want a multi-polar world with not only the US as the only superpower. Russia and China have a lot of reasons to see the US as an enemy; from US support for IS to selling weapons to Taiwan/South China Sea conflict, the trade/sanctions war. 

Russia and China are willing-proberbly-to go very far on actions against NK-wich they-as neighbours-consider a big risk. But they want the US to talk with them on equal bases. And also they would like the US to take away THAAD-stop military drills in SK etc. The US is not willing to consider Russia and China as equal. That is the basics of the conflicts. 

The G20 at best could provide openings for talks, peace etc. at worst they have failed before they started.)

From https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva?hc_ref=ARSMB1l6uQPAin4i8j_D2O3dvRW-uE574Qw4ym9AX971-_ReWCdo32nmd2LLm2EBxCU&fref=nf&pnref=story" rel="nofollow - https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva?hc_ref=ARSMB1l6uQPAin4i8j_D2O3dvRW-uE574Qw4ym9AX971-_ReWCdo32nmd2LLm2EBxCU&fref=nf&pnref=story

Watch the methane release in the Arctic and remember that the IPCC has never been right once on any political decision. As a political body, their politics sucks.

Their initial assessment of Methane (a political decision) was that it had a global warming potential of 21 times that of CO2 over 100 years.

They then revised that to 25 times that of CO2 over 100 years.

Recent Figures used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Methane’s Global Warming Potential (GWP) values for each ton of Methane are 34 times more than CO2 when viewed over a 100-year timeframe, and 86 times more over a 20-year timeframe, and 108 over a 10-year time frame.

34 over 100 years.
86 over 20 years
108 over 10 years
??? over 1 year

They do not stipulate what the GWP is for the first year or first five years it is in the atmosphere. They need to but refuse to do so, because the prospect is scary. If you look at the tremendous warming effect in the Arctic as Methane is released from the permafrost and the sea it would appear to be well over 200 but for the time being, we can estimate and just say 200.

The actual GWP value probably varies slightly based on other factors, like temperature, humidity and other gases in the air that offer competition for the same heat energy wavelengths.

The only good news about Methane is that its GWP diminishes over time relative to CO2 because methane stays in the atmosphere for only 10 to 12 years, whereas CO2 lingers for hundreds as long as it is in excess to nature.

If methane is credited with a 200 GWP and there is approximately two ppm of methane in the sky than the CO2 equivalent is up near 800 when the effects of Methane and CO2 (420 ppm) are combined. That is part of the reason why I expect to see far more rapid warming in the coming months.

Satori, maybe it is correct to say that at least Trump is open in his support of fossil fuel. Most other "leaders" claim they want change but do not act to their words. I do not expect miracles from politics-it is-at least for now-up to citizens to change things. 

Sharing information, education "at the grassroots" might be the best option for now. Fossil fuel is in power around the globe-citizens can try for smaller ecological footprints.

Satori, when I look at smoking and how not that long ago over 50% of the people smoked-it now has turned into a small group-I am optimistic.

Most people do not have such a large eco-footprint. A small group with a big eco-impact has to change. 

Steps are easy, less meat, less driving a car-also saves lots of money ! When it is also becoming the fashion things may change ! (But I do admit that that in itself is not enough. Political change is also needed ! Stupidity is widespread- but pioneers lead the way the flock may follow !)

How Deeply Will Rising Temperatures Cut into Crop Yields?

https://insideclimatenews.org/news/21082017/rising-temperature-agriculture-crop-yields-climate-change-impact


"

A sweeping study examining decades of research says that yields of the globe's most important crops—providing two-thirds of the world's calories—will plummet as temperatures rise.

For every degree Celsius that the Earth warms, corn yields will go down an average of 7.4 percent, according to the study, which focused on the effects of rising temperatures and did not directly examine other influences related to https://insideclimatenews.org/topic/climate-change" rel="nofollow - climate change .

Wheat yields similarly will drop by 6 percent on average for every degree Celsius that temperatures rise, rice yields by 3.2 percent, and soybean yields by 3.1 percent, according to  http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2017/08/10/1701762114" rel="nofollow - the study ."

The public has to be protected from "fake news" and the politicians decide on what fake-news is. 

Of course global warming is "very fake" according to most politicians. Those politicians-paid by "oil-and-arms" at best talk about "controleble climate change" "effecting not us but future generations in 2100". 
http://arctic-news.blogspot.nl/2017/11/warming-is-accelerating.html" rel="nofollow - http://arctic-news.blogspot.nl/2017/11/warming-is-accelerating.html

Arctic-news has been following global warming for years and with knowledge. In their models things are going so far as they expected, calculated. (Not like the IPCC which left out many "uncertain" factors like water vapor, methane etc.). According to Arctic News-based on NASA data- october 2017 did see a global temperature rise of 1,5C since pre-industrial time (=1880 ? 1750 would be more correct but then we would be even more be "out of control"). A.N. expects the 2C above maybe even in 2021. 

In their models of accumulating global warming factors we may have 10C+ by 2026. (But of course that is all fake news-trust your politician-they never lie.)

In their models they take in the account that 93,4% of the warming went INTO the ocean. Taking measurements on the surface is a big underestimate. DJ-If indeed global warming is going exponential-sealevelrise will go exponential as well. There are lots of indicators for that from Greenland, Antarctica, Himalaya. It does not realy matter if the 10C+ is in 2026 or 2030. Life will have stopped much earlier.

https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva" rel="nofollow - https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva is expecting a "nuclear winter" . With the very limited knowledge I have I do not believe that nuclear winters can safe live on this planet. But it will end all with the push of a few buttons.

Even based on IPCC-data Dutch Met Office does"not rule out" a sealevelrise of up to 1.8meter by 2100. 
https://www.nat-hazards-earth-syst-sci.net/17/2125/2017/" rel="nofollow - https://www.nat-hazards-earth-syst-sci.net/17/2125/2017/ based on IPCC data from https://dataverse.nl/dataset.xhtml?persistentId=hdl:10411/X8BTEB" rel="nofollow - https://dataverse.nl/dataset.xhtml?persistentId=hdl:10411/X8BTEB

IPCC works with models. When you follow https://www.facebook.com/paul.beckwith.9" rel="nofollow - https://www.facebook.com/paul.beckwith.9 , https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva" rel="nofollow - https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva you know there are very serious flaws in the IPCC data. In their models they introduce not existing technology to get CO2 out of the atmosphere, ignore methane and water vapor. 

When even with those incomplete data a sealevelrise of almost 2 meters in stead of less than 1 meter is a serious consideration more realistic scenarios (not the "political"IPCC lies) may be closer to "doomsday scenarios".  

There is a supervolcano under Antarctic ice. Major seismic activity in polar regions can be expected which will push large chunks of ice into the ocean (causing tsunami's). Those geological events can not be put in models-there is not enough data. But the risks for abrupt events may be far greater than any "politics" is willing to deal with.

In this "exponential" model temperatures will get 10C above the pre-industrial level by 2026. When you would have to translate that to sealevel rise you may have to think of "super-exponential"(explosive) models. 

In an exponential model https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_growth" rel="nofollow - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_growth you get the hockey-stick model. In a given period growth doubles. For example; sealevelrise would be 2mm in year 1, 4mm in year 2, 8mm-year 3, 1,6cm-year4, 3,2-year5 etc. Already very dramatic-only "years" are partly human ideas. 

What I think of "super-exponential" model would be double growth but time would halve. So year 1 would be 2mm growth of sealevelrise, but 6 moths later it would be 4mm, to get to 8mm 3 months after that, 1,6 cm only 1,5 months later (cummulative in 1 year and 10,5 months would bring "growth" of 2+4+8+16mm=3cm with another 3,2 cm on its way in just a little more than 3 weeks). 

The "Thomas Fire" will destroy wood and give way to a desert. With methane CO2 and other green house gas going up fast the "global ice conditions" are worsening by the hour. Freezing-point is a hard turning point.

Along with their warning, the scientists list a dozen or so examples of the kind of actions that could turn humanity’s trajectory around.

Thanks, DJ!!  

Nothing will happen in the USA to abate climate disasters, despite all of the evidence to the contrary.  

It is interesting, as the states most impacted (Oklahoma, Texas, Florida etc.) are solidly Republican voting states.  

By the time that these populations wake up to the truth, it will be far too late.  In fact, I believe that it already is too late, no matter how much energy/money is thrown at the problem. 

Sad.

Charles, It is not only the US that is failing to deal with the coming climate disasters-most "developed" countries simply fail to do enough-in my opinion.

I agree that it is too late to avoid major problems. How fast things get how bad is a big question. 

From +10C by 2026 (no life left) to +2 meter sealevelrise by 2100 are the two extremes. I tend to believe the worst case scenario may be very realistic-we will have already much larger problems by 2020-in wildfires, flooding, hurricanes, extreme weather, droughts etc-than the already very big problems we have this year. 

What action could be effective and by whom is another question-I believe eating no meat, stop using fossil fuels-as much as possible-could have serious effects-but much more-in CO2. methane etc. reduction is needed. It could turn out that-eventhough people vote stupid-as consumers they may be willing to take the right steps ?

DJ-Two alarming messages from Hal Turner;

1- http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/u-s-national-news/1853-nuclear-terrorism-on-new-year-s-eve-denver-and-las-vegas-said-to-be-locations" rel="nofollow - http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/u-s-national-news/1853-nuclear-terrorism-on-new-year-s-eve-denver-and-las-vegas-said-to-be-locations One or more nuclear attacks on the US (false flag or not) could push the world into (faster) chaos and collapse

2- http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/1852-chinese-ships-caught-illegally-selling-oil-to-north-korea" rel="nofollow - http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/1852-chinese-ships-caught-illegally-selling-oil-to-north-korea ending with Hal Turner claiming US plans a war (proberbly) before march 20. 

DJ-I do not agree with Hal Turner on most issues but in international news he may have some credit. I believe that he was correct, at superstation 95, on Saudi-Turkey(-US) plans to invade Syria twice. Proberbly one of the reasons it did not happen was that the news got out-so the surprise element was gone. (Other reasons could be disagreement between Turkey and Israel-KSA and Turkey not agree on military plans-Saudi Arabia had to push thru via Jordan and/or Iraq to reach Syria.)

At present there is a very major conflict between the US and Russia/China. The conflicts in Syria, Iraq. Ukraine, Libya and Korea (maybe also Pakistan-India) are part of the bigger conflict. The end of the US-petro dollar is the end of US being the global power. 

War will only worsen the global crisis. We-as humans already face a global climate crisis-with very likely-temperatures (and sealevelrise) going exponential. 

The US may be working on a war-plan for North Korea. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shock_and_awe" rel="nofollow - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shock_and_awe "fire and fury" will be part of this plan.

Two scenario's

1 Very limited, Russia and China-AND NK-prewarned but unable/not willing to stop it. Missiles at NK energy facilities-infra-structure. Very limited loss of human life (unless NK chooses to react with military action).

2 Large scale-non nuclear-meant to make NK "go knock-out", risks is very high this scenario will not do the damage it is meant to do. NK military units may be able without central command from dug-in positions. Dams could flood Seoul, sleeper cells around the world could cause severe (strategic) damage. (China and Russia may see such an attack as an attack on their countries-may intervene in NK to try to control the conflict as much as possible. Also in other area's conflict could escalate-Israel attacking Iran etc.)

There are several "hot-blobs" in the oceans-making 2018 proberbly warmer and with more hurricanes/extreme weather than 2017. We need to deal with climate change before it deals with us !

DJ; This tends to an exponential model. Extreme weather-events happening now give an indication on what to expect. Defrozen virus, bacteria etc. other health risks will increase due to climate change.

The best "we" can do is to try to slow down the proces.

Is There A Ticking Time Bomb Under The Arctic?

https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2018/01/24/575220206/is-there-a-ticking-time-bomb-under-the-arctic

"The permafrost contains twice as much carbon as is currently in Earth's atmosphere," Douglas says. "That's 1,600 billion metric tons."

In fact, there's more carbon in the permafrost, Douglas says, than all the carbon humans have spewed into the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution — first with steam trains, then with coal plants, cars and planes.

Methane is far more of a green house gas than Carbon,

and the melting permafrost releases tons of that as well as Carbon.....

The Earth responds to climate change in interesting ways, sometimes producing what we call “feedbacks,” which can either amplify global warming or dampen it. Some of the feedbacks that can amplify warming have behavior that is hard to predict in the near future and leaves scenarios that are potentially worse than expected hanging over our heads. One of those is the release of greenhouse gas from thawing permafrost—and regions of shallow seafloor that were frozen land thousands of years ago when sea level was much lower.

The most dangerous-sounding issue involves methane hydrate, an ice-like substance full of methane that is present in some ocean sediments. Its sudden release is a suspect in some major extinction events. But how much we should worry about destabilizing methane hydrates or thawing permafrost is not perfectly clear.

A group of researchers led by  http://www.aces.su.se/staff/kathryn-sparrow/" rel="nofollow - Kathryn Sparrow  headed to the Beaufort Sea in the Canadian Arctic to bring an improved measurement technique to bear on an important question: how much of the methane in the sea floor is ending up in our atmosphere?

Bubble trouble

A different group of scientists working offshore of Siberia has sounded alarms about plumes of methane  https://arstechnica.com/science/2013/11/off-siberias-arctic-coast-the-seafloor-belches-methane/" rel="nofollow - it observed  bubbling up from the seafloor there. Researchers are trying to work out how warming is affecting that bubbling methane and what it will do in the future.

Studies off Svalbard  https://arstechnica.com/science/2014/01/methane-release-around-arctic-islands-predates-recent-climate-change/" rel="nofollow - have found that  methane bubble plumes there pre-date human-caused climate change. And, counterintuitively, those plumes have been shown to actually cause a net removal of atmospheric greenhouse gas  https://arstechnica.com/science/2017/05/in-the-arctic-carbon-dioxide-goes-down-where-methane-comes-up/" rel="nofollow - by stimulating the growth of plankton  that consume CO2. So there’s a lot to account for before projecting what the future holds for this particular feedback.

But back to Sparrow and her team working in the Canadian Arctic: they have essentially carbon dated the methane dissolved in the water by measuring radioactive carbon-14. As they moved from the shore toward deeper water, they were able to make measurements both at the bottom and in the surface water. This allowed them to calculate how much ancient methane was coming out of the seafloor and how much successfully reached the surface to be released into the atmosphere.

We don’t actually expect those two numbers to be the same. Microbes in the water can digest the methane and turn it into CO2. Currents may also drag the methane into the deep ocean.

Hungry microbes

The measurements did find plenty of ancient methane at the bottom, although there was also young methane produced by the microbial breakdown of dead plankton (another source is atmospheric methane that mixes into the water).

The surface water measurements are another story, though. Closer to shore, the team found a fair portion of ancient methane at the surface. But once the water got around 30 meters deep, the ancient methane all but disappeared from surface waters, accounting for 10 percent or less of the total methane dissolved in the water.

That indicates that things like hungry microbes are effectively preventing the methane that's being released on the seafloor from reaching the atmosphere once the water is deep enough. Since most of the Beaufort Sea is more than 30 meters deep, that means Beaufort seafloor methane isn’t being directly dumped into the atmosphere, even if warmer water is causing the seafloor to produce more.

In other words, the news is good, assuming other areas of the Arctic Ocean are behaving similarly. The obvious next question is: how will these processes respond to continued global warming? If the seafloor releases more methane, will microbes keep up as the water they live in warms?

That’s one piece of the puzzle researchers will need in order to offer more precise estimates of how much greenhouse gas the natural world will release in response to our own emissions. More evidence of limits on the release of methane could at least partially defang this particular sleeping dragon.

Permafrost in the Arctic is thawing faster than ever, according to a new US government report that also found  https://www.theguardian.com/world/arctic" rel="nofollow - Arctic  seawater is warming and sea ice is melting at the fastest pace in 1,500 years.

The annual report released on Tuesday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration showed slightly less warming in many measurements than a record hot 2016. But scientists remain concerned because the far northern region is warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe and has reached a level of warming that’s unprecedented in modern times.

“2017 continued to show us we are on this deepening trend where the Arctic is a very different place than it was even a decade ago,” said Jeremy Mathis, head of NOAA’s Arctic research program and co-author of the 93-page report.

Findings were discussed at the American Geophysical Union meeting in New Orleans.

“What happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic; it affects the rest of the planet,” said acting NOAA chief Timothy Gallaudet. “The Arctic has huge influence on the world at large.”


Permafrost records show the frozen ground that many buildings, roads and pipelines are built on reached record warm temperatures last year nearing and sometimes exceeding the thawing point. That could make them vulnerable when the ground melts and shifts, the report said. Unlike other readings, permafrost data tend to lag a year.

Preliminary reports from the US and Canada in 2017 showed permafrost temperatures are “again the warmest for all sites” measured in North America, said study co-author Vladimir Romanovsky, a professor at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks.

Arctic sea ice usually shrinks in September and this year it was only the eighth lowest on record for the melting season. But scientists said they were most concerned about what happens in the winter – especially March – when sea ice is supposed to be building to its highest levels.

Arctic winter sea ice maximum levels in 2017 were the smallest they’ve ever been for the season when ice normally grows. It was the third straight year of record low winter sea ice recovery. Records go back to 1979.

About 79% of the Arctic sea ice is thin and only a year old. In 1985, 45% of the sea ice in the Arctic was thick, older ice, said NOAA Arctic scientist Emily Osborne.

New research looking into the Arctic’s past using ice cores, fossils, corals and shells as stand-ins for temperature measurements show that Arctic ocean temperatures are rising and sea ice levels are falling at rates not seen in the 1,500 years. And those dramatic changes coincide with the large increase in carbon dioxide levels in the air, the report said.

This isn’t just a concern for the few people who live north of the Arctic circle. Changes in the Arctic can alter fish supply. And more ice-free Arctic summers can lead to countries competing to exploit new areas for resources. Research also shows changes in Arctic sea ice and temperature can alter the jet stream, which is a major factor in US weather.

This is probably partly responsible for the current unusual weather in the United States that brought destructive wildfires to California and a sharp cold snap to the south and east, according to NOAA scientist James Overland and private meteorologist expert Judah Cohen.

“The Arctic has traditionally been the refrigerator to the planet, but the door of the refrigerator has been left open,” Mathis said.

Outside scientists praised the report card.

“Overall, the new data fit with the long-term trends, showing the clear evidence of warming causing major changes,” in the Arctic, said Pennsylvania State University ice scientist Richard Alley.

The United Nations human rights chief has warned that US President Donald Trump’s speech in Switzerland would take the world back to the eve of World War One.

Zeid Raad al-Hussein expressed the alarm on Friday after Trump said in a speech at the Swiss ski resort of Davos that countries should pursue their own self-interest.

”It’s the script of the 20th century,“ Prince Zeid said. “He (Trump) urged all countries to pursue their own interest, almost without reference to the fact that if you do all of that, if each country is narrowly pursuing its agenda, it will clash with the agendas of others and we will take the world back to 1913 once again.”

In his address at the World Economic Forum, Trump repeated his “America first” slogan, saying he would expect all world leaders to put the interests of their own countries first.

-

“Ethnic nationalisms, chauvinistic nationalisms, a sense that there is a supremacy within communities determined on the basis of color or ethnicity, and that others are somehow lesser people, or that certain countries are somehow morally superior to others,” he said in reference to Trump’s speech.

Prince Zeid, a former Jordanian diplomat and member of the deposed royal family of Iraq, has, on several occasions, criticised Trump in the past while serving as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The Trump administration, in return, has threatened to quit the UN Human Rights Council, which works closely with Zeid’s office despite being separate from it.


DJ-The only way out of extreme problems is international cooperation. Ignoring problems makes those problems larger. There is some hope that in the US at local-sometimes even state-level people understand we do not live on islands-but share a "big-small planet" big enough for all of us when we do our very best, but small enough to destroy with the press of a button (seize does not matter for the button).

We are already 1,6C above pre-industrial level-moving to 2C+ within a few years.

Indeed, warming in the Arctic is taking place much faster than elsewhere, and the difference is accelerating. There's a huge danger that accelerating warming in the Arctic will speed up feedbacks such as:
• huge amounts of methane getting released from the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean;
• melting of sea ice and permafrost causing more sunlight to get absorbed in the Arctic, as less sunlight gets reflected back into space;
• changes to jet streams causing more extreme weather, in turn resulting in more emissions, such as due to wildfires;
• and more.

In conclusion, feedbacks could speed up global warming by much more than what may be suggested by above trends that look only at surface temperature of the atmosphere and that are based on previous data when such feedbacks had yet to become manifest.

Add up the impact of all warming elements and, as an earlier analysis shows, the rise in mean global temperatures from preindustrial could be more than 10°C in a matter of years, as illustrated by the image below, which shows a much steeper rise.

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qOK6zF6xCXM/WhfiWzB8O3I/AAAAAAAAYH8/zWIoxk6yKbw0Q9AQpqR1uRtwVFCPEhLCwCLcBGAs/s1600/24.%2B10C-18F-stack.png" rel="nofollow">

Particularly devastating feedbacks could result from changes regarding heat and carbon dioxide taken up by oceans. Oceans now take up 93.4% of global warming, as illustrated by the image below.

A candidate for the West Virginia House of Delegates was dragged out of a hearing after listing the donations received by state lawmakers from fossil fuel companies. She was testifying on a bill on oil and gas drilling rules.

Lissa Lucas was criticizing a proposed bill, HB 4268, which would allow oil and gas companies to drill on private land with the consent of just 75 percent of the landowners. Energy companies are currently required to have 100 percent approval from landowners before they can extract gas and minerals from land.

As part of her testimony, she read out the list of names of lawmakers who received sizeable donations from fossil fuel companies. Her testimony elicited a less than warm reception from the legislature.

The people who are going to be speaking in favor of this bill are all going to be paid by the industry … the people who are going to be voting on this bill are often also paid by the industry,” Lucas said.

Lucas was ordered by House Judiciary Committee members to desist from making “personal comments” about members. As Lucas persisted, her microphone was cut off. When lawmakers refused to let her finish speaking, she told them to “drag me off.” Security was called and in a video of the incident she can be seen being dragged from the floor.

I got dragged out of House chambers … Because I was listing out who has been donating to Delegates on the Judiciary Committee,” Lucas  https://lissalucas.com/2018/02/09/i-was-dragged-out-of-the-wv-house-chambers-because-i-listed-delegates-campaign-donors/" rel="nofollow - wrote  on her blog.

A sort of "ice-age" could be a result from land-ice (Antarctica, Greenland 2 miles/3 kilometer thick) sliding into the ocean(s). The difference between land- and sea-ice is often difficult to tell since a lot of land-ice is eroding below sealevel-becoming land-ice linked ice. When it cracks, breaks of, it is no longer land-ice, becomes sea-ice.

The data on climatechange have become that shocking I myself hesitate to look at it. Methane-level seems to be out of control with a lot of earthquakes in the (Ant)Arctic. 

In my (DJ) opinion there are serious risks in these quakes. 1-A "burst" of methane could be so powerfull it can cause strong quakes, tsunami's. 
2-Methane struck by lightning could catch fire (even-maybe ???-explode). Such a fire may be hard to put out, heats up area's that need cooling down.
3-Both quakes and methane form dangers for the formation of new (sea)ice.

I find the news on climate-change that depressing that I distance myself from it from time to time-other "doom and gloom" also may be even more urgent. A major war-for whatever reason-will also speed up climatechange, food/watercrises, number of refugees, spread of illnesses etc. 

When I see an increase of earthquakes in the (Ant)Arctic-follow https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva" rel="nofollow - https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva the only thing left is to be happy with every reasonable day we have, try to slow down processes with climatechange, try to buy time.

With Joe Neubarth I recognize this way of thinking. On climatechange the scenario's are not very clear, full of surprises, and all are bad. 

Even in an optimistic mood-landice sliding into the ocean from Greenland and Antarctica-the consequences will be extreme due to underlying land being lifted up (less pressure from the ice)=earthquakes. Both those quakes and "mountains of ice" dropping into the ocean can cause global tsunami's far stronger than humans may even think of.

Already the jet-stream is going crazy bringing extreme weather allover the planet faster than ever before. 

Looking at the coming (northern hemisphere) summer-heatwaves are very likely, effecting foodproduction. Hurricane-season, extreme storms, rainbombs, etc. will effect logistics.

I can imagine that already climatechange is effecting the US ability to start global wars. 

When "tomorrowland" is dark enjoy today-it may be the best option you have.

@Satori, proberbly already tens of thousends do die due to climatechange-this year. Pakistan-Karachi-dealing with over 40C/100F degrees already. 

Most likely climatechange is speeding up-"politicians" (it is not only Trump) can lie what they want. There have been several reports of wildfires, extreme weather is getting more extreme. (And yes-due to disrupted jet-stream there could be snow in april more south than usual-it just proofs the story-but when you want to live in fantasyland-many politicians do-factfree policies are the rule).

"Faster than expected" could translate in increased sealevelrise. When the land is sinking (in some area's) that could mean permanent flooding. (For the US Florida could expect this soon, also some small island-states are "drowning"). There are "uncertainties" but so much is quit certain reality will confront lies.

Studies say Atlantic Ocean's circulation slowing dramatically, increasing climate change fears

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/science/ct-ocean-circulation-climate-change-20180411-story.html

The Atlantic Ocean circulation that carries warmth into the Northern Hemisphere's high latitudes is slowing down because of climate change, a team of scientists asserted Wednesday, suggesting one of the most feared consequences is already coming to pass.

The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation has declined in strength by 15 percent since the mid-20th century to a "new record low," the scientists conclude in a peer-reviewed study published in the journal Nature.

DJ-Less ice is more warming, less land-ice is rising underlying layers is increase of seismic activity. Volcanism effects climate change. Volcanic (Sulphur) clouds can block sunlight, but soot/ash on snow/ice can warm things up-less sun-energy-reflection. Under Antarctica there are several volcano's. When they erupt it could cause high-speed melting/break-up of ice.

Ours is the warmest on record too.  Our weather forecast folk admit that, but I still think they are downplaying it.

Here in misty, cold NE Sotland we have had a consistent heatwave all month.  I don't believe what the max/min thermometer is saying!!  Climates do not change by over 20* in one single year!

Our usual persistent torrential rain at this time of year has completely failed to appear - not one drop.  I am storing drinking water in case my well runs dry.  The water table is way down.  it was just 1 foot below the surface last year.  A 15 foot deep exploratory hole has remained dry as a bone.  My well is only about 18-20ft deep.  I may have to dig a new deeper one.

On the plus side, the midges are nowhere to be seen, as they need at least thick dew to reproduce and we all managed to remove more than one layer of clothing.  Hubby even has a nice tan.

Via google translate-somehow this pressrelease is not avalable in English (from https://www.knmi.nl/over-het-knmi/nieuws/warmste-mei-in-drie-eeuwen-in-zonnige-lente" rel="nofollow - https://www.knmi.nl/over-het-knmi/nieuws/warmste-mei-in-drie-eeuwen-in-zonnige-lente )

May was the warmest month of May in three centuries. In the current climate, a comparable extremely warm month of May occurs once every 60 years.

A total of 13 summer days (25.0 ° C or higher) were measured. This is the highest number since 1901. The average temperature in De Bilt was 16.4 ° C, the long-term average is 13.1 ° C.

De Bilt had its first tropical day of 2018 on May 29th

The month started cool, but quickly became hot in the summer. The last days of the month it was sweltering and in the nights it was not cooler than 18 degrees. De Bilt had its first tropical day of 2018 (30.0 ° C or higher) on May 29th. The highest temperature 31.9 ° C was measured that day in Lelystad. The measurements in Lelystad are currently being influenced by large-scale construction work at the airport, where the measuring station is located. The sunniest was in the northern coastal area with 326 hours of sun on Terschelling. The sun shone the least in Zeeland with about 260 hours. This is special because in May, as in the rest of the coast, it is generally sunnier than inland. On average, there was less rainfall in the Netherlands than normal. Due to the often diffuse character of the precipitation, the regional differences were large. In the wettest places about 100 millimeters fell, on Terschelling only 15 millimeters. A large part of the monthly amount of precipitation fell during heavy thunderstorms in the last week. Due to thunderstorms, KNMI issued code orange three times: on May 27 for Limburg, on May 29 for almost the entire country and on May 31 for the northern half.

Gentle and very sunny spring
The spring of 2018 comes at a (shared) third place of softest springs since 1901. The season was also very sunny.

The average temperature in De Bilt was 11.0 ° C one and a half degrees above the long-term average of 9.5 ° C. March was cold, April very mild and may be the warmest month of May in three centuries. The lowest temperature was reached on the first day of spring in New Beerta: -9.6 ° C. Easter Sunday, April 1st, was at a grade of 7 cool, even colder than the last Christmas day. Then followed a long period with mild to very mild weather. The first summer day (25.0 ° C or higher) was on April 19. Normally there are no summer days in April, now there were three.

This spring the normal amount of precipitation fell and it was very sunny

This spring the normal amount of precipitation fell. Wilhelminadorp was the wettest KNMI station with approximately 273 millimeters. The least rain fell in Hupsel: 116 millimeters. This season was very sunny. The sunniest was on the north coast with on Terschelling 682 hours of sunshine. In the southwest the sun shone the least, in Westdorpe there were 534 hours of sunshine.

Finland had similar weather...and also the forests broke all records for dryness as well.

On language difference, I see the Dutch use "summer days" for 25 C or over. Over here the 25 C barrier is recorded,  but it is called "High Summer"  [implies that some of the summer days can be quite cold -- the last few nights we have had warnings for 'nigh frost'!]

https://www.meteoalarm.eu/" rel="nofollow - https://www.meteoalarm.eu/ I noticed for Scandinavia and Baltics a large fire hazard. The "astronomical" summer still has to start-and North America did see several wildfires already-not looking good !

Defenitions of Heatwaves also differ by country. Here in the Netherlands you need 5 days +25c of wich 3 + 30C (and to have a "national heatwave" De Bilt-near Utrecht-has to have those temperatures). 

Extreme weather is getting "normal", (Ant)Arctic melt must be extreme.....methane and CO2 go over the top with several Arctic Earthquakes per month-a dark doom scenario.

Blighty gets excited by any temperature over 25*C and Scotland any temperature over 20*C.  Blighty panics when it goes over 30*C and Scotland the same for 25*

The temperatures all rose over those points during May but the really strange bit is that they stayed over 20*C in Scotland and over 25*C in most of England.  Stranger still, the weather forecasters/reporters did not admit how hot things got up here.  Being in the coldest part of Scotland and up a hill to boot,  Our farm rarely reaches double figures.  We have been greatly relieved when the temperature dropped back into the 20s.  I still do not believe the temperature I saw on our max/min thermometer.  It was left in the sun and recorded temperatures over 40*C.  I knew it was excepyionally hot, but I still think the thermometer is broken.

Antarctic sealevelrise contribution went from 0.02mm to 0.06mm in 5 years-another 5 years will be 0.18mm, by 2028 0.54mm-per year ! In 2033 1,62mm per year-and that would be Antarctic-under "present conditions"-so excluding all other causes for sealevelrise (Greenland melt, water expanding due to warming, land moving up when there is less ice on it-Greenland has a 3km thick layer of ice-pressing Greenland down 1 kilometer-land coming up means water coming down....)

DJ-There is also an increase in both eartquakes in the Arctic and volcanic activity, storms. Earthquakes may speed up further collapse of (sea and land) ice-chunks of ice may break off, tsunami's over sea-ice erode the ice, also strong winds erode the ice and blowes snow into the ocean-before it can become ice. Draughts can mean that there is no snow falling-also that snow can not form a new layer of ice. https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva" rel="nofollow - https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva Has been following methane (a.o.)-not included in IPCC models-exploding-for the moment in levels (parts per billion)-but it also can explode, it is an explosive gas...in the short term 100x+ a heat trap than CO2. Most of the increase in warmth-93%-went into the ocean-there are limits-also the ocean is giving that warmth to the atmosphere.
(A reminder the amount of energy needed to melt ice is enough to also increase temperature to 80C-the less ice, the faster the temperature increases-no loss of energy !)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YujwSeCu59w" rel="nofollow - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YujwSeCu59w Paul Beckwith:

Persistent cyclones churning up Arctic sea-ice are bad news. Maximum Arctic sea-ice savagery occurred in 2012 from a massive long-lived August cyclone leading to the outstanding record September sea-ice minimum. We just had a big one in early June. There is almost no thicker multi-year ice left in the Arctic; what is left is thin, brittle, slushy, darker, and honeycombed with saline pockets like Swiss cheese. It won’t be around much longer; it is headed to oblivion. Russia and the USA seem happy with this. Little do they know.
