CO2 emissions still dominate the total radiative forcing of climate change, leading methane CH4, nitrous oxide NO2 and combined CFC release into Earth's upper atmosphere. Including an alarming report of an incredible 29% increase since 1990. See graphs...

Has anyone ever heard of exponential negative feedback loops, which could accelerate all of the current traditional climate-change models???

What are our world's governments doing about this???

So many critical questions arising, with only a few scant weak answers to go around!!!

I am following an Antarctic ice-shelf that has cracked and will eventually enter our oceans, which would result in an immediate sea-level rise. NASA and NOAA has dispatched the largest rapid-deployment expedition to drill the ice shelf to determine its dynamics.

Keep an eye on the developing southwestern U.S. severe long-term drought for indications of another dreaded dust-bowl, like the one that engulfed the United States during the 1930's.

I must admit chemistry confuses me, but I could not find any of your most dire situations projected in either report when I visited the site. I read it twice.

Did you hear about the unusual record hurricane-force storm that hit Alaska, ripping roofs off buildings, which caused mass evacuations?

WHAT'S NEXT???

Thank you Mindy. Now if our government would wake up we wouldn't have had these problems to begin with.

Noted, shared and thank you. Dr. James Lovelock gave a lecture on the topic of forcing a few years ago:

Your statement in your first post is not quite accurate. The Antarctic ice-shelf is actually sea based ice that will not increase sea-level, as it is already in the sea. The danger is in that these ice-shelves inhibit land based ice from entering the oceans at higher rates. To simulate sea based ice, place an ice cube in a glass and fill it to the brim with water. As the ice melts, the glass will not overflow. Place 2 popsicle sticks on the full glass and put an ice cube on these to simulate land based ice and watch what happens. That said, the deterioration of ice shelves is a serious concern.

Thanks to Mike S. for that clarification..and no, I hadn't been,aware of this, or if I had been it was so confusing it just didn't sink in.
So Pink, you already know who most of us are voting for, may I be so bold as to ask if you really are going to vote green in the presidential election?
I won't hold my breath for a definative answer on that, nut I will thank you posting this article.

Thanks for the article PM. I could be wrong but there seems to be a concerted effort to under-report weather extremes which are happening on an almost daily basis at the moment.

Don't waste your vote on Democrats or Republicans; both are sold out to the corporate machine, which is destroying the globe.

Only the Green Party accepts NO CORPORATE MONEY and is not influenced by corporate lobbyists. If you truly want your vote to count and mean something, vote and register Green Party. Better yet, run as a local Green Party candidate.

God knows, we need some real solutions, instead of divide and conquer that the corporations are using so effectively up to today.

What are our worlds govenments doing about it?



Well, if I recall correctly, Republican George W. Bush made an idiot out of Democrat Al Gore in 2000, calling him a liar and a scam artist when he presented his documentary "An Inconvienent Truth".





What would you THINK governments are doing about it???????????????
