Studies Show Ice Melting and Ocean Warming Both Happening Much Faster Than Previously Thought

Studies Show Ice Melting and Ocean Warming Both Happening Much Faster Than Previously Thought

Julia Conley, staff writer

A multitude of new climate studies has painted a picture of the numerous factors that are simultaneously leading to rising sea levels, which could increase by more than 10 feet by the end of the century.

Scientists at University of California, Irvine found significant acceleration in the melting of ice across Antarctica, compared with how fast the ice was melting in the 1980s.

People need to understand how quickly the end of humans is coming, Scientists seem to err on the side of “we’ve still got time” when most often, they know differently. Keep your love on.

I’m old. I will see NOTHING of what’s to come. Anyone born today is royally screwed. It was quite a nice planet, actually, at one time.

Of course, everything is accelerating and speeding up … just as pollution from
the time of the Industrial Revolution constantly increased and speeded up.

We had a 50 year gap before we humans actually began to feel and see the
destruction of nature brought about by capitalism and its insanities – and what
we are now beginning to feel is increases in pollution put in play from 1969 onward…

All events will increase not only in number but also in severity.

Drastic changes that we can make if we unite for our lives and our families will help
the current situation, but it can’t undo the damage done nor stop the melting or the
rising sea levels.

We certainly have no time left – a dozen years if we are lucky – but the question really
is would we be lucky or unlucky to still be on this planet?

wings –

They know, of course – and are rewarded presumably, though who knows
just how the “rewards” work or where they are kept.

But every day all of our employment is based in furthering the interests of capitalism
which is basic fascism.

If we want this shut down of government to STOP it may take a work stoppage by
pretty much the entire nation to do it. We don’t need a referendum on “the wall” –
We can all make our feelings clear by standing down … for days if necessary …
until Trump is forced to stop this attack on workers, government and citizens.

You’re killin’ me.

you state;
While the deceptive scientific “establishment” tries to market the science hoax of “climate change"

your Global Citizens link states;
Climate change is causing global ocean temperatures to rise, changing how fish species migrate, causing coral reefs to die and unleashing dangerous pathogens.
and
The world’s oceans are also absorbing much of the excess carbon dioxide being produced by human activity, which causes waters to become more acidic and inhospitable to marine life.

Geoengineering Watch;
Thanks for indirectly turning me on to;


After playing with the Interactive interface for a while, it’s obvious that Geoengineering watch has misinterpreted those screenshots to suit his conspiracy theory.

The answer is because while toxicology, through it’s effects on workplace safety, has long been known to be a threat to business profits, while climatology has been a sleepy backwater of physics. At least it was until recently. They haven’t had long enough to corrupt the field. They’ve been trying though, even if ham-handedly. Look up the case of Willie Soon.

Actually it is accelerating to the point that you probably will see things in the next few years. About 2 weeks ago it was -4F in Grant NM and about +40F in Anchorage AK. There is nothing normal about that. A couple of years back in December it was above +32F at the North Pole. There is nothing normal about that.

Don’t forget the refugee crisis in Europe was in large part due to the 500 yr drought in Syria that sent farmers to the Syrian cities where frictions led to the Syrian civil war. The refugees heading to the US from central America are in large part moving from rural areas to the cities due to epic drought there. In the cities they were targeted by gangs forcing them to come north for their safety.

The MSM is not really covering this at all…it’s all the terrorists fault according to them.

Chemtrails is tinfoil hat nonsense, geoengineering dot com is BS

Those patterns in the sky that fascinate believers are nothing new. They have been photographed continually since 1942. The difference today is the Huge number of flights per day. San Francisco airport alone has over 1200 takeoffs and landings per day.

Two central beliefs of the chemtrails cult, is that normal Contrails should not persist; And that they should not spread out into thin clouds.
Those are both 100% FALSE

Your link claims that modern jet engines should not form contrails. That is the opposite of the facts. More efficient engines produce More contrails not less.

All of the supposed proof of chemicals found are completely unscientific amateur done nonsense.

As Metabunk points out, every book written about clouds, in the last 70 years, says Contrails Do Persist for hours, And they spread out into thin cirrus clouds

Also:
Encyclopædia Britannica article on vapour trails (contrails)

“Contrail, streamer of cloud sometimes observed behind an airplane flying in clear, cold, humid air. It forms upon condensation of the water vapour produced by the combustion of fuel in the airplane engines. When the ambient relative humidity is high, the resulting ice-crystal plume may last for several hours. The trail may be distorted by the winds, and sometimes it spreads outwards to form a layer of cirrus cloud.”

Chemical Analysis of Contrails

What is a contrail made of? Mostly ice, since one of the primary exhaust emissions of a jet aircraft is water vapour, which freezes within a couple of seconds, and forms the visible part of the contrail. If the air is fairly humid, then the contrail can persist for quite a while, and even spread out, turning into a sheet of cloud.

The second column, the MDL is the “Method Detection Limit”, defined as the smallest amount where you can be 99% sure that there is a non-zero amount of the substance. If a number is below the MDL, then you can’t be sure that it’s just instrument noise. If something is less than MDL, then you can’t say with any certainly if any of the substance exists. The best you can say is “there might be some, but we can’t say for sure, but it’s definitely less than the MDL”

Most of the substances are lower than the MDL, so we can’t really say if there is actually any of these substances in the sample.

Barium gets into the air during the mining, refining, and production of barium compounds, and from the burning of coal and oil.

Aluminum is the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust, so is found in dust in the air, and hence in rainwater

I could not agree more. Humans fail to understand the concept of the exponential factor. Things are unraveling at an ever quickening rate. Our time is short now…fifteen years on the outside? Probably closer to ten or fewer years…

A lot of people know – even if subconsciously.
Everyone has to question personal waste at some point in their lives –
and they figure someone is handling it all for them. But … NO.

Everyone has to question animal-eating as well at some point –
but they’re frightened, they don’t think they can give it up –
even people will arteries loaded with animal fat will think – everyone tells
me to eat animals – THEY must know what they saying – NO.

People have families – Revolution is a BIG word.

If people were so frightened of what employers would do they’d never go on strike.
We’d still be working 7 days a week – and so would toddlers.
See: Grapes of Wrath

Monopolies and wealthy are blackmail in itself – they are threats to all of us; that’s
why capitalism WAS regulated and WHY it can’t just be regulated again – it’s an evil –
it’s basic fascism.
