More from Greenland:

'Climate change: Warmth shatters section of Greenland ice shelf'
A big chunk of ice has broken away from the Arctic's largest remaining ice shelf - 79N, or Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden - in north-east Greenland.

The ejected section covers about 110 square km; satellite imagery shows it to have shattered into many small pieces.

The loss is further evidence say scientists of the rapid climate changes taking place in Greenland.

"The atmosphere in this region has warmed by about 3C since 1980," said Dr Jenny Turton.

"And in 2019 and 2020, it saw record summer temperatures," the polar researcher at Friedrich-Alexander University in Germany told BBC News.

Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden is roughly 80km long by 20km wide and is the floating front end of the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream - where it flows off the land into the ocean to become buoyant.

At its leading edge, the 79N glacier splits in two, with a minor offshoot turning directly north. It's this offshoot, or tributary, called Spalte Glacier, that has now disintegrated.

Better visit Iceland before it freezes over.....
New studies confirm weakening of the Gulf Stream circulation (AMOC)
Classé dans: Climate Science — stefan @ 17 septembre 2020
Many of the earlier predictions of climate research have now become reality. The world is getting warmer, sea levels are rising faster and faster, and more frequent heat waves, extreme rainfall, devastating wildfires and more severe tropical storms are affecting many millions of people. Now there is growing evidence that another climate forecast is already coming true: the Gulf Stream system in the Atlantic is apparently weakening, with consequences for Europe too.

The gigantic overturning circulation of the Atlantic water (dubbed AMOC) moves almost 20 million cubic meters of water per second – almost a hundred times the Amazon flow. Warm surface water flows to the north and returns to the south as a cold deep current. This means an enormous heat transport – more than a million gigawatts, almost one hundred times the energy consumption of mankind. This heat is released into the air in the northern Atlantic and has a lasting effect on our climate.

But since the 1980s, climate researchers have been warning of a weakening or even a cessation of this flow as a result of global warming. In 1987, the famous US oceanographer Wally Broecker titled an article in the scientific journal Nature “Unpleasant surprises in the greenhouse”. Even Hollywood took up the subject in 2004 in the film “The Day After Tomorrow” by the German director Roland Emmerich. However, there were no measurement data that could prove an ongoing slowdown.

We were surprised visiting Iceland in January that it only got to -5 in the southern part ...was -17 in Toronto when we left. Traveling around the island it varied from -5 to +5 even in January.
They filmed parts of GoT in Iceland ......Winter IS coming. :coffee:

Just on television: Scientist see that the increasing number of forest fires means smoke particles enter the upper atmosphere and could weaken the ozone layer possibly creating a new ozone hole over the next decades.

Prince Charlie is on the TV saying we need to go on a war footing against climate change. If a toffy conservative like him can get it, why can't others?

So our descendents, if any, are fooked ....
Climate change
Melting Antarctic ice will raise sea level by 2.5 metres – even if Paris climate goals are met, study finds
Research says melting will continue even if temperature rises are limited to 2C

While the Trump administration continues to ignore the danger of climate change, a surprising new actor has broken out to take it seriously: the Federal Reserve System.

The Fed, the U.S. central bank, has moved from irregular mentions to a concerted effort to roll out a spate of new ideas and endeavors that highlight the risks of climate change to our financial system. As part of this effort, in the past two weeks the Fed has:

· Included climate change as a risk to the economy in its biannual report for the first time;

· Discussed its essential behind the scenes work on climate change that will enable the Fed to move much more quickly into the next stages of action; and

· Testified to Congress that they asked to join a group of banks that are working to ensure the financial system meets the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Reactionary, anti-climate-science governments around the world (including Australia) are increasingly being side-lined by a host of other actors taking action on climate change. They include several of our State Governments, and a large collection of hard-nosed financial institutions and tech giants who are following the money flow.

The Pentagon has it as one of it's greatest risk factors moving forward.

There's a subtle difference between the two posts. One of my common grammatical errors.

Greta Thunberg turns 18. Cunt can no longer go on about children and their handlers.
