Early onset of industrial-era warming across the oceans and continents | Nature

This new study suggests that anthropogenic warming in some regions began as early as the 1830s.

With Post #3003, we have just provided a proof for the 3rd Law of Thermodynamics.

Who'd have thunk? Coral bleaching caused by ocean acidity? No wonder we needs oodles of dem dare climate scientists.

he phrase "mic drop" is defined by the Urban Dictionary as "when a performer or speaker intentionally drops/throws the microphone on the floor after an awesome performance" — that is, the performance was so awesome that there is nothing more to say

Re: Do we need to be preparing for Arctic cruising strategies because of Global Cooli

In that case the term mic drop may be perfect after all this whole thread is considered performance art.

You should see me juggle the fireballs but I had to give those up too much CO2 off-gassing

Global warming is melting the Greenland Ice Sheet, fast | The Guardian

A new study, published in Geophysical Research Letters, of high-resolution satellite data reinforces previous studies indicating increasingly rapid melting of Greenland's ice sheet.

Quote:
In total, they estimate approximately 270 gigatons of ice loss per year for 2011–2014. This result is almost a perfect match to independent measurements made by other researchers and builds our confidence in their conclusions. To put this in perspective, the Greenland Ice Sheet is losing approximately 110 million Olympic size swimming pools worth of water each year.
At this rate Greenland is losing 0.74% if its present ice sheet volume per century. It will take around 12000+ years to lose all it's ice if the current trend continues. I wonder what the pre 1800's annual losses were?

Climate change: Greenland Ice Sheet is shrinking at high rate | Los Angeles Times
Quote:
...The scientists found that from 1900 to 1983, the Greenland ice sheet lost about 6,233 gigatonnes of mass. Then from 1983 to 2003, the sheet lost about 1,475 gigatonnes. And from 2003 to 2010, the ice sheet lost 1,305 gigatonnes.

This process has been speeding up in recent years. The rate of loss from 1900 to 1983 was about 75.1 gigatonnes per year; from 1983 to 2003 it was 73.8 gigatonnes per year, and from 2003 to 2010 it jumped to a 186.4 gigatonnes per year.

Because of the ice sheet's shrinkage from 1900 to 2010, the sea levels have risen about 1 inch, the scientists concluded...

Well that's it then. We're all doomed. At this rate the ice could be gone in less than 6000 years. Woe is us, I guess.

No, you can say Greenland lost 0.74% of its present ice sheet in the last century, but you have no basis for saying the rate of ice loss is 0.74% per century, and it's counterintuitive, to boot.

...F. See me after class.
