18″ Sea Level Rise by 2040 Baked in – Pine Island Glacier Breaking Up 10 X Faster Than Predicted

18″ Sea Level Rise by 2040 Baked in – Pine Island Glacier Breaking Up 10 X Faster Than Predicted

Pine Island Glacier’s ice shelf is ripping apart, speeding up key Antarctic glacier UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON For decades, the ice shelf helping to hold back one of the fastest-moving glaciers in Antarctica has gradually thinned. Analysis of satellite images reveals a more dramatic process in recent years: From 2017 to 2020, large icebergs at the ice shelf’s edge broke off, and the glacier sped up. Since floating ice shelves help to hold back the larger grounded mass of the glacier,…

Climate tipping points may have been reached already, experts say

Climate tipping points may have been reached already, experts say

My reaction to this is “where in hell have they been the last ten years?”. I have long given up on articles like this to focus on what we can actually observe.Seeing the quotes from serial liar, Michael Mann I have to ask what are they lying about here? CBS, 26 April, 2021 Through decades of research, and now lived experience, it has become clear that the impacts of climate change will have drastic and far-reaching consequences on our planet. And…

Iceberg is on collision course with South Georgia

Iceberg is on collision course with South Georgia

We have been watching this iceberg since it broke off from Larsen C Ice Shelf in 2017 A68 iceberg on collision path with South Georgia BBC, 4 November, 2020 The world’s biggest iceberg, known as A68a, is bearing down on the British Overseas Territory of South Georgia. The Antarctic ice giant is a similar size to the South Atlantic island, and there’s a strong possibility the berg could now ground and anchor itself offshore of the wildlife haven. If that happens, it…

Largest and Deepest Ozone Hole in Antarctica in Years

Largest and Deepest Ozone Hole in Antarctica in Years

It seems to be just a few months ago that they were crowing about how the hole in the Antarctic ozone hole was ‘healing’ and at its smallest size.  Now, you cannot even find those items in the search engines! Reports like this to me reveal just how bad the situation must be and is being hidden.  Dane Wigington is amongst the very few that says the situation is getting worse – much worse – and I believe him. https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/category/geoengineering/results-of/ozone/  Antarctica Wakes Up…

Record warming at the South Pole during the past three decades

Record warming at the South Pole during the past three decades

‘No place isolated from warming’ – South Pole heating up three times faster than rest of world, study finds For the past 30 years, Antarctica’s South Pole has warmed at more than three times the global rate, a new report has found. TVNZ News, 30 June, 2020 One of the researchers involved, Victoria University’s Dr Kyle Clem, says they used to think the Antarctic plateau was safe from the warming. “But what we’ve seen is a rapid and extreme flip…
