Methane has undergone rapid acceleration and scientists say it may be due to atmospheric changes

Methane has undergone rapid acceleration and scientists say it may be due to atmospheric changes

Despite the following tweet, my suspicion is they will look ANYWHERE but at methane clathrates in the Arctic Ocean. That continues to be taboo.   Methane much more sensitive to global heating than previously thought – study Greenhouse gas has undergone rapid acceleration and scientists say it may be due to atmospheric changes Wildfires behind Los Angeles in 2016. An increase in wildfires may have pumped more carbon monoxide into the atmosphere and altered the chemical balance. Photograph: Ringo HW Chiu/AP…

New Zealand wants to tax livestock burps

New Zealand wants to tax livestock burps

The timing is immaculate given the worldwide attack on agriculture and the production of food. For context, let’s first see what New Zealand’s contribution to global methane emissions are (from just one day): This is what expert on Arctic ice, Peter Wadhams had to say about a previous report PETER WADHAMS: “I FELT MY HEART SINK WHEN I SAW THIS WORTHLESS REPORT.” “The two bizarre aspects of this are: 1. The politicians talk about taking big bold actions (in a…

Holes the size of city blocks are forming in the Arctic seafloor

Holes the size of city blocks are forming in the Arctic seafloor

An autonomous underwater vehicle is recovered after completing a seafloor mapping mission in the Arctic Ocean. The remotely operated vehicle (foreground) is used to conduct visual surveys of the newly mapped seafloor. (CNN) Marine scientists have discovered deep sinkholes — one larger than a city block of six-story buildings — and ice-filled hills that have formed “extraordinarily” rapidly on a remote part of the Arctic seafloor. Mapping of Canada’s Beaufort Sea, using a remotely operated underwater vehicle and ship-mounted sonar,…

CAMS changes their “interpretation” of methane data

CAMS changes their “interpretation” of methane data

I have been moving away from routine reporting of Arctic ice and methane largely because it is fraught and I realised at the end of the melt season that most of the official reporting is nothing less than distortion.  Now, following on from COP-26 we have CAMS moving from a “o-suite” to an “e-suite”, something they explain in pure bureaucratic jargon that leaves one none the wiser. Presumably, the levels were not being reflected correctly so now we have things…

What is happening to CAMS data on methane?

What is happening to CAMS data on methane?

I don’t foray so frequently into observations of the Arctic ice but Margo has just alerted me to this. This is today’s surface methane readings from today.  There have been no readings since the 1 December. Here is a comparison with Margo’s last analysis However, it was the view at 500 hPa that blew my mind. A couple of years ago CAMS made an adjustment to the colour ledger to make it appear things appeared better than what they were….

Arctic sea ice report – 20 July, 2021

Here is Margo’s full report from two days ago. Here is my summary, following on one from a month ago ARCTIC SEA ICE IS DETERIORATING QUICKLY   SEA ICE EXTENT The experts refer exclusively to sea ice extent an so doing provide a false picture of the real situation METHANE There is a lot more methane being released than a few weeks ago but there is a suspicion that the algos are hiding the real situation (as discussed by Margo)…

‘Mindboggling’ Arctic heatwave breaks records

‘Mindboggling’ Arctic heatwave breaks records

‘Profound heatwaves’ in region will be more common, warns meteorologist the Independent, 24 May, 2021 A “mind-boggling” heat wave in the Arctic has broken temperature records in north-west Russia,  meteorologists have said. Last Wednesday, the mercury rose above 30C in parts of the Arctic, significantly above the average for the time of year. Scott Duncan, a meteorologist based in the UK, described conditions as “truly exceptional for any time of the year but mind-boggling for May”. The climate expert added that because the Arctic…
