Scientists Demand ‘Paradigm Shift’ After Study Shows ‘Frightening’ Decline of Insects and Spiders

“A decline on that scale over a period of just 10 years came as a complete surprise to us,” said one researcher, “but fits the picture presented in a growing number of studies.”

…the California fires and related rolling black-outs beg the question, where are these Climate Refugee’s going to go? Is it even possible to rebuild these lives?, it it even wise to rebuild in the same spot? The places that are becoming uninhabitable are increasing with every change of the season because of worsening disasters. From fires, floods, hurricanes and related weather systems we are going to end up with a livable space crunch. Even worse yet there is no national discussion of any of this…

As PG&E Leaves Millions Without Power Amid Wildfires, Sanders Says Time to Think About ‘Public Ownership of Major Utilities’

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate has proposed a Green New Deal that would create “a modern, high-volt, underground, renewable, direct current, smart, electric transmission and distribution grid.”

California fires, from the Getty Center to Kincade, unleash another danger: Air pollution

We need to stop looking at wildfires in terms of houses destroyed and recovery dollars spent. They also cause irreversible health damage from air pollution.

…global surface sulfur dioxide…

Sulfur dioxide (SO₂) is a colorless gas with a characteristic, irritating, pungent odor. Exposure to sulfur dioxide may cause irritation to the eyes, nose, and throat. Symptoms include: nasal mucus, choking, cough, and reflex bronchi constriction, and when liquid: frostbite Workers may be harmed from exposure to sulfur dioxide. The level of exposure depends upon the dose, duration, and work being done. …from the CDC

…do you really and truly want to know how bad off we are? really? okay, so go here and click through the panel on the left hand side and well see just how amazing it is that we are still alive, of course we have killed off a major portion of life on Earth to do it but we are still here, for another day or two at least…

Wobbly Jet Stream Is Sending the Melting Arctic into ‘Uncharted Territory’

A shift in weather patterns created a month of extreme melting, prompting scientists’ concern about the impact on long-term climate models.

https://insideclimatenews.org/news/08062016/greenland-arctic-record-melt-jet-stream-wobbly-global-warming-climate-change

…yes, the article is from 2016 but it has good information so you can quickly grasp why seeing the jet streams the way they are is so scary and the NASA example they show is mild compared to what is above…elsewhere I have claimed we have gone passed major tipping points and are now in “run-away global warming”, the thing I most fear is if the two jet streams, north and south “blend” together, they are interacting to some degree already but what happens when they get intertwined? I just don’t know and I don’t know who to ask either, most scientists aren’t that willing to talk to lay people, they’d rather publish papers, publish or die as they say…

Scientists Say A Fluctuating Jet Stream May Be Causing Extreme Weather Events

https://www.opb.org/news/article/npr-scientists-say-a-fluctuating-jet-stream-may-be-causing-extreme-weather-events/

“What surprised the scientists was that the jet stream’s meandering has become more frequent. “Since 1960 we get more years when the jet is in an extreme position,” Trouet says, either in its northernmost or southernmost position. She adds that this pattern of more frequent, extreme shifts north and south has never been seen before in her 290-year record.”

…Friday 11/1/19, 8:00am, I posted that last entry around 2:30am and am still trying to process it in my mind…the tree ring record does not show the variables with the jet stream, not for 290 years…uncharted territory, the great unknown and the jet streams look to be more erratic everyday…I need to process this some more, I’ll be back…

Wed. 6th of Nov. 2019…I keep going back to the Earth map and looking at jet streams and the article above keeps coming to mind, I haven’t come across any other information concerning the jet streams being so erratic, you know, the cause and effect, they just keep getting more and more twisted up as if some odd St. Vitus Dance…very scary…the Earth map set for the jet stream…correction…we know the cause, it is the lack of arctic sea ice, the melting of Antarctica and the glaciers…the effect? an eye opening experience of a new world with erratic jet streams, stay tuned…

Jet Stream Changes Since 1960s Linked to More Extreme Weather

By using tree rings, the UA-led team developed the first reconstruction of historical changes in the North Atlantic jet stream prior to the 20th century.

Recent enhanced high-summer North Atlantic Jet variability emerges from three-century context

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-017-02699-3

s41467-017-02699-3

…the paper in PDF form…

“Our results suggest increased late twentieth century interannual meridional jet stream variability and support more sinuous jet stream patterns and quasi-resonant amplification as potential dynamic pathways for Arctic warming to influence mid-latitude weather.”

Nov. 7th, 2019…so the above address is to her lab in Tucson AZ…lots there to discover and process, I have yet to find anyone else doing the work outside of her team…cutting edge stuff that is really important in understanding our future and what the jet streams may be capable of…so many questions, like, what happens if they blend together and more…as you go through the labs work you’ll see how important her work is in understanding climate history and civilizations rise and fall…a must visit  site…

…just a few things about the jet streams so we all can keep things straight…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jet_stream

…a few notes on the jet streams and the Earth map…the jet streams are measured by millibars of pressure, which can be converted to height above the planet but it is a lengthy process, when viewing the Earth map you will see the wind category and the list of numbers which are the pressure levels of the jet streams starting at ground level and going up 1000 to 10, the actual jet streams are at 250…when viewing the Earth map just click on the word Earth and there is a full array of choices to be made regarding what it is you need to know, it is a wonderful tool, best I’ve found yet and have spent hours just observing our Little Blue Ball in Space…

Air from Siberia to send temperatures plunging from Texas to New England

…you can see the jet stream flow from Siberia down :((( …set at 250 millibars…this next one is set at 850 millibars and way closer to the surface…

NSW and Queensland fires: Sydney to face catastrophic danger rating for first time – live

For the first time ever, there is a catastrophic fire danger forecast for Sydney, as firefighters battle dozens of blazes across NSW and Queensland

https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/isobaric/250hPa/orthographic=139.02,-24.26,328/loc=128.382,71.437

…these are reasons why the wacky wobbly jet streams are so important…record cold in America for this time of year and Sidney under an extreme fire alert, Sidney! they are seeing rain forest burn, rain forest!…uncharted territories…I see reports that if we do this, if we do that, there is still time to fight and gain an upper hand, wishful thinking, day dreams, lies…beware-be aware but Do Not Panic, when you panic you make mistakes and those mistakes may be deadly…only love remains…

Changes in high-altitude winds over the South Pacific produce long-term effects

New findings from the field of Earth history are improving our grasp of climate mechanisms

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/11/191105104418.htm

…the article is great, lots of info…but…it doesn’t say where we are in the cycle…

…just some images of the fires in Aussieland and the cold coming from Siberia…I will be taking a break for a bit and will move on to page 14 when I came back…stay safe everyone…

…I have to following posted to the front page but this page is getting more hits, they are of the cold coming down into America and of the Pacific Heat Blob helping to drive the jet stream…stay warm, stay safe…

…a must watch video…

…so we aren’t having the Blue Ocean Event this year and I look at the Earth map and I can’t tell if the jet stream has slipped 17 degrees, it doesn’t look like it to me but what do I know, not much…but…we are seeing the jet stream act the way he presents it would during a BOE and we have the added factor of the Pacific Heat Blob heat-engine…so from the video we can gather some clues as to what next week (?) may be like, long term as well, none of this feels right…again, uncharted territory…I confess, watching the jet streams on the Earth map is addictive, be careful :)…
