Drought Clobbers the World

The list of drought conditions hitting every continent, except Antarctica, is overwhelming. Indeed, the worldwide drought should be categorized as a triple-extra-alarm emergency with all hands on deck. Will it be?

Apocalypse

The apocalypse has been predicted a number of times for over two thousand years, but every prediction of “End Times” has failed. Yet, a case can be made that it’s never been closer to reality because it’s already happening here and there.

Ecocide!

Human destruction of “large areas” of the Earth has grown so conspicuously large, so threatening to all species, including human existence, that a group of international legal experts is working to submit a draft of a new law “Ecocide” to the International Criminal Court (“ICC”) at The Hague.

An Exhausted Planet Limps Into 2021

The Alliance of World Scientists (13,700 strong) delivered a biting report, not mincing words: “Scientists now find that catastrophic climate change could render a significant portion of the Earth uninhabitable consequent to continued high emissions, self-reinforcing climate feedback loops and looming tipping points.”

A Troubling Discovery in the Arctic

A notable satellite-telephonic call to colleagues in late October from Swedish scientist Örjan Gustafsson of Stockholm University briefly described a haunting discovery: “This East Siberian slope methane hydrate system has been perturbed and the process will be ongoing.”

The World on Fire

Massive uncontrolled unprecedented wildfires are consuming portions of the Amazon rainforest and several regions of the Arctic. Somebody somewhere must be asking why all of a sudden in unison, all over creation, two of the planet’s largest ecosystems are going up in smoke.

Amazon Rainforest Hit By Killer Droughts

Over the past 20 years, like clockwork, severe droughts have hit the Amazon every five years with regularity 2005, 2010, 2015. Of course, droughts have hit the Amazon rainforest throughout paleoclimate history, but this time it’s different. The frequency and severity is off the charts.

The IPCC’s Worst Case Scenario

A recent landmark study of massive ice loss in Antarctica and Greenland fulfills the “worst case” prognosis, as outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It’s a nightmare come true, as the impact of global warming on the planet’s most significant/biggest masses of ice multiplied six-fold in only 30 years. It wasn’t supposed to happen so unexpectedly, so suddenly.

Global Warming on a Rampage

The year 2019 is the 43rd consecutive year since 1977 with both land and ocean temperatures above the global 20th century average. And the global rate of global warming has doubled since 1977, an ominous and clear signal of accelerating global warming. Frankly, it’s horrible news. Brace yourself!

Amazon Onslaught

This month, Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro proposed a new bill promoting mining, expanded agriculture, and energy production on indigenous lands in the Amazon. During Bolsonaro’s first full year in office, Amazon deforestation increased by 85%, an eye-popping number expected to get even worse.

Mega Droughts Engulf Countries

Throughout the world, mega droughts are hitting hard with a ferocity not seen in decades and in some cases not seen in centuries. It’s not merely coincidental that as global warming accelerates droughts turn more vicious than ever before.

The Amazon at a Tipping Point

The Amazon rainforest is a crucial life-support ecosystem–without it, civilization would cease to exist beyond scattered tribes, here and there. But recent research concludes that the life of this beacon of biodiversity and resilience may soon come to an end: “The tipping point is here, it is now.”

Biosphere Collapse?

The world is on a colossal fossil fuel growth phase in the face of stark warnings from scientists that emissions must decline to net zero. Otherwise, the planet is destined to turn into a hothouse. As things stand today, it appears “Hothouse” is baking into the cake.

Permafrost Hits a Grim Threshold

For tens of thousands of years the Arctic’s carbon sink has been a powerful dynamic in functionality of the Earth System. However, that all-important functionality has been crippled and could be permanently severed. According to new research, the “entire Arctic” now emits more carbon than it absorbs, a fact that can only be described as worse than bad news.

Ignoring Climate Catastrophes

The planet is coming apart at the seams right before the eyes of scientists at work in remote fringe areas of the North where permafrost crumbles and collapses. It’s abrupt climate change at work in real time, but the governing leaders of the world either don’t care or don’t know.

Circles of Life

I wrote this about 20 years ago when I was really struggling to come to terms with the enormous destruction humanity is wreaking upon the Earth, while also appreciating the deep resilience of life.

Methane SOS

Global warming is on speed, especially in northern latitudes where an international team of scientists recently made a startling discovery aboard the Academic Mstislav Keldysh (see photo above), the kind of discovery that sends chills down the spine, i.e., “methane bubbles boiling in water.”

This Is Not the Sixth Extinction. It’s the First Extermination Event.

From the “insect apocalypse” to the “biological annihilation” of 60 percent of all wild animals in the past 50 years, life is careening across every planetary boundary that might stop it from experiencing a “Great Dying” once more. But this atrocity has no goelogical analogue. To call it the “sixth extinction event” is to make what is an active, organized eradication sound like some kind of passive accident. We are in the midst of the First Extermination Event.

Climate Catastrophe Comes for Europe

When most people think of climate change, what come to mind are the poles, Asia’s fast vanishing glaciers, or Australia, where punishing droughts are drying up the sub-continent’s longest river, the Murray. But climate change is an equal opportunity disrupter, and Europe is facing a one-two punch of too much water in the north and center and not enough in the south.

The Companies Behind the Burning of the Amazon

The burning of the Amazon and the darkening of skies from Sao Paulo, Brazil, to Santa Cruz, Bolivia, have captured the world’s conscience. Much of the blame for the fires has rightly fallen on Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for directly encouraging the burning of forests and the seizure of Indigenous Peoples’ lands. But the incentive for the destruction comes from large-scale international meat and soy animal feed companies.

How Amazon Forest Loss May Affect Water—and Climate—Far Away

The Amazon has already been so degraded that even a small uptick in deforestation could send the forest hurtling toward a transition to something resembling a woodland savanna. But in addition to forever destroying huge sections of the world’s largest rainforest, that shift would release tremendous quantities of planet-warming greenhouse gases which will affect us all.

Can We Blame Global Warming On Sun Cycles?

Our sun is reaching the end of it’s normal 11 year cycle and is now approaching a period of minimum solar activity. This one’s being dubbed the Grand Solar Minimum. Some say it’s the real cause of climate change and that it’s going to wreak havoc with our weather systems for years to come, possibly even tipping us into a mini ice age. But the numbers tell a very different story…

Research Highlight: Loss of Arctic’s Reflective Sea Ice Will Advance Global Warming by 25 Years

Losing the remaining Arctic sea ice and its ability to reflect incoming solar energy back to space would be equivalent to adding one trillion tons of CO2 to the atmosphere, on top of the 2.4 trillion tons emitted since the Industrial Age, according to current and former researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego.

Earth 4°C Hotter

Because prominent scientists addressed the issue of a 4°C planet and because climate scientists, in general, are constantly apologizing for being too conservative, too timid in their forecasts, it is a worthwhile exercise to look at a 4°C world. It could happen within current lifetimes.

Global Climate Strike Aims to Spur Transformative Change

The world’s youth have infused a new urgency into the global fight against climate change. Through movements like Fridays for Future and Extinction Rebellion, millions of young people have gathered in public squares and busy streets, senate chambers and assembly rooms, to call on government leaders to curb greenhouse gas emissions and enact meaningful environmental policies.
