Sierra has shifted about a month.

Temperatures around 32 were common on the morning before the "sunny" Rose Parade, but now they never happen.

Polar ice melt is accelerating.

But GOP propagandists keep telling me it's a Chinese hoax.

Coldest Outbreak in At Least Two Years Possible Next Week Following Another Arctic Blast Into the Midwest

Two more blasts of bitterly cold air will dive across the central and eastern U.S. through next week bringing widespread subzero temperatures to the Midwest while also keeping the South and Northeast shivering at times.

The next round of arctic air is beginning to seep into the northern Plains and upper Midwest and will spread to the Great Lakes and Northeast by Friday, remaining entrenched through parts of those regions over the weekend.

Yup. Time to say, OMG, here comes the Polar Vortex. Under the bed, quick.

The much-maligned Polar Vortex is a vortex at very high levels around (surprise) the North Pole. Sometimes the lower level (~500 HPa) jet stream that we've fucked up plays monkey business with it. Then the higher vortex distorts, and/or collapses. Down comes the cold air, and that's when it's -25 in International Falls, and all the records get set, and all the usual idiots say see, there's no climate change.

The next phenomenon is that the distorted jet stream sucks air westward over the Rockies and the coastal mountains. The repeated downslopes heat it right up. Suddenly (usually right after a chilly period) it's 80 degrees in L.A.. Like today. This sells a lot of real estate, but I hate it. The human body isn't meant to change seasons three times in a week.

I know, I'm doing a poor me on this one, like the guy who doesn't like the paint job on his new Rolls-Royce. Still, a pain in the butt is what it is.

In general, the distribution of tornadoes is widening. This is in keeping with the presumed effects of Gulf and Caribbean warming.

it seems the entire Caribe is now fallen to the same weather pattern changes, alterations, the
mayans created after they had deforested the Entirety of central america, up towards mexico.
mexico was mostly Incan tho tv shows make it seem as tho mayans were crawling all over mexico.
they were in SMexico and also 'walled' in by the Incans to the north. (theres that wall thing again.)

since the islands now have been denuded since most of CAmerica is now deforested too --one from hurricane one by man cutting--the weather across the Caribe will continue to alter.
droughts fires lack of soil to grow food, just a few things that are becoming deadly overwhelming
for mammals, 4 and 2 leg, trying to live there.
(which is why so many are on the move around the world every day.)

no worries!! go buy a new car and fill it with plastic water bottles bought at walm.

Good morning Twidiot.

The moronic DJT tweeted:
In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder. People can’t last outside even for minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!

OK, stable genius. Lesson 1. You live on a planet. The U.S. and its Upper Midwest are not the entire planet. Climate is not weather. Winter is a thing, but it ends.
Lesson 2. I know your previous conversations with Australia didn't go so well, but you ought to talk to them. It's summer there.

Australia's Heat Wave Is Taking A Toll On People, Animals, Infrastructure And Land
https://www.npr.org/2019/01/25/68875502 ... e-and-land

It's summertime in Australia, and the country is in the throes of a record-breaking heat wave that has brought suffering to humans, animals and land.
Temperatures in the south have soared past 118 degrees Fahrenheit.

Someday you might have to explain it to conservatives, and though I understand that this is often like teaching pigs to sing, the facts remain the facts.

1. The cold snap is caused by climate change. These are going to become more frequent.

2. The cause is the rapid heating of the Arctic. The North Pole still gets pretty cold in winter, but the atmosphere has changed the way it circulates.

3. The polar vortex is not new. What's new is how the changed circulation affects it. It displaces the jet stream, changes pressure gradients, and makes the polar vortex more likely to collapse.

4. Now you know why you never heard of the polar vortex until the 2010s, and now you hear about it all the time.

5. And this is how global warming can cause more frequent and severe cold snaps.

6. And none of this is any more theoretical than the existence of, say, static electricity. Just because you can't see something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Kentucky gov gets heat for criticizing cold-weather closures

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky's Republican governor is getting some heat for saying school districts are being too "soft" on kids when they cancel classes due to cold weather.

Many of Kentucky's schools closed Wednesday with forecasts predicting wind chills well below zero degrees (negative 17 Celsius).

Gone in a Generation
Across America, climate change is already disrupting lives--

By Zoeann Murphy and Chris Mooney
Published January 29, 2019

The continental United States is 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it was a century ago. Seas at the coasts are nine inches higher. The damage is mounting from these fundamental changes, and Americans are living it. These are their stories.

‘They’ve done their damage’--
Beetles and drought have imperiled Montana’s forests so much that they no longer clean the air of carbon dioxide. Instead, they are sending millions of tons back into the atmosphere.

...Montana has warmed 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit since 1950,...
In the 1990s, Montana’s forests were pulling some 20 million tons of carbon dioxide out of the air each year. But by the 2010s, they had reversed course and were putting a few million tons per year back again. The net result is that Montana is sending an extra 20 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year.
its what happens when you CLEAR CUT DEFOREST the VEGETATION ON the Earth LEAVING
NOTHING BUT DIRT.

Climate change will eventually kill or misplace billions over the next 100 years, probably half the planet or more.

The sad thing is most of the deniers wont be around to be the FIRST to suffer which they obviously should be.

Logging disrupted lives well before anyone had heard of climate change. It's about the worst thing you can do to an ecosystem. It had evolved toward a somewhat more sustainable model until Koch Industries bought it all up, now it's back to clearcutting.

Friend, con , logger, not really a friend anymore.

We were out front of a building waiting to go into a rock show, as in music, and the spotted owl thing was big, it was when they were doing all that way back (what is the name of the brother politicians from San Francisco, state reps, who spearheaded saving the owl?) and we got to talking and he simply said no matter the harm to the environment we had to keep logging or he would be out of a job.

Fast forward 30 years or so, they are saying this still.

Polar vortex 2019: Temperatures to plunge to 'historic' lows not seen in decades

The harsh winter blast that has already killed at least seven people will worsen dramatically Wednesday, forecasters warned, saying that the expected conditions could be the coldest in a generation.

The National Weather Service late Tuesday described the polar vortex system surging from the north as "one of the coldest arctic air mass intrusions in recent memory." It said bitterly cold, very dangerous wind chills would spread across much of the eastern two-thirds of the country, "likely leading to widespread record lows and low maximum temperatures" plunging more than 20 degrees below zero in the Midwest.

they said its colder in Detroit than Antarctica but not as bad as our neighbor states to the west

Lake Michigan is helping Michigan stay warmer than other states

Quote:
........Why is it so much more chilly to our west? Lake Michigan is easing our pain, said Brent Lofgren, a physical scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory in Ann Arbor.

A polar vortex involves a low-pressure area in the atmosphere, typically parked at the North Pole, that is now dipping down well into the U.S. The high-pressure area of the atmosphere behind it is forcing that frigid air into the low-pressure area — and for our region, that means it’s moving over Lake Michigan.

“Air near the surface warms up by contact with the lakes,” Lofgren said. “The air will generally spread out along the surface, rather than rising back into the air column.”

With most of Lake Michigan not yet ice-covered, the cold air also picks up water vapor, which causes a bit of a greenhouse effect as well, further trapping heat — a relative term in this case.

“That’s why Grand Rapids is doing better temperature-wise than other places — it’s more immediately downstream of Lake Michigan,” Lofgren said.........

It's summer down there. Today was a balmy -19. Chill factor -33.

It might have been a bit warmer (-14 F) on Mars, but it cools off at night. Last night's low according to the Curiosity rover was -117 F.

Huge Cavity in Antarctic Glacier Signals Rapid Decay

A gigantic cavity - two-thirds the area of Manhattan and almost 1,000 feet (300 meters) tall - growing at the bottom of Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica is one of several disturbing discoveries reported in a new NASA-led study of the disintegrating glacier. The findings highlight the need for detailed observations of Antarctic glaciers' undersides in calculating how fast global sea levels will rise in response to climate change.

Researchers expected to find some gaps between ice and bedrock at Thwaites' bottom where ocean water could flow in and melt the glacier from below. The size and explosive growth rate of the newfound hole, however, surprised them. It's big enough to have contained 14 billion tons of ice, and most of that ice melted over the last three years.

"AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperature of 77 degrees below zero Fahrenheit reported at Thief River Falls, Minnesota, on Tuesday evening."

I saw that in an AccuWeather® report.

:roll:

Thief River Falls, Minnesota has an airport which has certified instruments I can look up since the new is exagerating the news.

That "RealFeel® Temperature of 77 degrees below zero Fahrenheit" relates to a real temperature low of minus 38 f, and wind chill low calculated to have been minus 63 f.

Those lows did not occur at the same time of day. When the temperature was at it's lowest there was only 7 mph of wind, and the wind chill was minus 57 f.

When the wind chill was at it's lowest, the wind was at 27 mph and the temperature was minus 31 f.


Apparently that fancy phrase "AccuWeather RealFeel®" means the same as exaggeration. :|




Minus 38 f is awfully cold. I was once in the same state with a temperature like that, where I was it only got as low as minus 33 f that night. I was out in it fixing stuff, it was so cold. Wind chill in the minus 60's range. Cut Bank Montana is where those Montana low temperature records are set.

I got back into my service truck after having been on a roof for an hour, got about 5 miles down the highway and being in somewhere kind of warm, warmed me up too fast. My throat closed off, I couldn't breath. It passed in a few moments, I'm still alive. I didn't quite wreak the truck either, it was a scary thing all around.

The next day I snapped the axle on my truck when I tried to get it moving from my driveway. Steel doesn't like the cold either.

A Snow Squall Blew Through New York City, And The Videos Are Incredible

New York City is far from the eye of the Polar Vortex that’s turned one-quarter of the nation into danger zones. It’s not even that cold — or at least not comparable to cities like Chicago and Minneapolis, which have become colder than Antarctica. But the country’s most populous metropolis received a brief, relatively mild taste of what other places are going through, which prompted some on social media to add to the already towering piles of Polar Vortex videos and images.

Around 3:20 p.m., the city was hit with what the internet was quick to dub the “snow squall” — a short but extreme case of whiteout conditions that was over as quickly as it started. In the span of about 30 minutes, the five boroughs, which had clear and sunny conditions earlier in the day, suddenly gained one or two inches snow before everything returned back to normal.

i watched a doc from 2018 on glaciers across western Wyoming, the bottom of the Grand Tetons.
ive been thru Wind River canyon, one of the prettiest places on this continent.

there is so much carbon dirt falling on, lying on, felled down on, the ice that is left that this glacier ice
is melting faster every day. every new dark color rock, escarpment, hillside of rock, is also causing
melt since that is a Dark color bringing melt way faster to the snow and ice as dark will absorb
the suns Heat. the retreat of the glaciers was hard enough to see, then you see the DARK snow,
the DARK CARBON that covers the once WHITE ice and snow.

as this continues the water flow will Further diminish, fish will die wildlife will die and
downstream no one will have water for IRR of livestock that sells to humans as food.

this is just One spot here that feeds merica. its slowly going under due to carbon and deforestation.
..this has come after the oil corps were pouring their toxic fracking waters back above ground On To
the ground willy nilly until they were Forced to stop poisoning the WY rancher and farmers land who had
all that toxic water shit all over their fields for some years.


Glaciers of the Winds
Thursday, January 31, 08:00 am on KNMD-HD 9.1 WORLD
Duration: 0:57:12
Description: Glaciers of the Winds is a one-hour documentary on the science, exploration, and retreat of the glaciers in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming. WyomingPBS looks at the big picture of how receding alpine glaciers will affect the ecosystem, municipalities, farmers, and ranchers downstream.

And that includes the irrigation of household landscaping, parks, golf courses, etc for 10 months out of the year. Recently most years have been 12 months irrigating everything. That's where most of the water goes in L.A.. It really is a phenomenal amount of water.

It is no longer too weird to wonder if the ice caps will disappear altogether. Russia is betting on it for Arctic oil drilling (accelerating the problem).
