Reblogging–Religion, Science and Gaining Traction

This is a post from Guy McPherson’s NATURE BATS LAST website that’s relevant in context of the Malcolm Light assertion about our survival being down to months. There’s a 46 minute video that Guy made in light of the dire message we’ve gotten in terms of the near certainty of earth experiencing a Permian style […]

Our path to the end

This post started as a response to a question on Quora. I spend way too much time on Quora and Facebook and other such time-vampire sites, but somehow I’ve worked up to the point where I’m a frequent responder on topics around climate change. I’ve become a most frequently-read poster ‘expert’ on Quora, which means… […]

Let’s back up here…

This is a moment to back up a bit. I have put out lots of info on climate over the past five years, and some of it has changed. There are assumptions that people are making now, what with the sixth IPCC assessment now out.  A lot of folks reading my blog lately don’t understand many […]

‘They don’t plan to tell us’ 2018 edition

Explosions of methane in the Siberian permafrost. I first used this title four years ago, when there was scant news coverage of the explosion of methane out of the Siberian Permafrost (satellite pic from Siberian Times). I was more optimistic back then… The big news in Media Matters on Monday–of the 50 largest largest US newspapers, […]

Did I speak too soon on Extinction?

Well, this is confounding. A few days ago, I posted that we might have ducked a meltdown of Arctic ice for the year–we’re heading into September, and while we’ve lost a lot of ice mass, we aren’t at a blue ocean event. DERP. The Arctic Methane Emergency Group has a scientist named Sam Carana. Or […]

Did we just dodge the extinction bullet?

I’ve been talking about the increasing likelihood of losing Arctic Ice this year. Scientist after scientist has come forward over the past two years to say this year could be it–that the once-dismissed projections of Guy McPherson were now supported by the projections of the Naval Postgraduate College, Harvard scientist James Anderson, and Ocean physicist […]

So long and thanks for nuthin’

Wow–my last post was UBER depressing, huh? Sorry about that (it also had a record number of hits over 48 hour period). The data has been building up for awhile and I haven’t done a long-form piece on the predicaments. If you’re new to the blog, I don’t write often enough for these to sink […]
