Summer Extremes Continue to Shock

August 7, 2021

Below, footage from a ferry in Greece looks like some kind of Green screen tour of hell.

    From Spiegel on the Russian fire season (6th August 2021)
    ==================================================
    “Russia’s president once declared that climate change is caused by “invisible changes in the galaxy.” Now, large parts of Yakutia in Siberia are on fire. The permafrost is threatened and the government response has been inadequate. ”

    WHAT SHOULD REALLY BE SHOCKNG US IS WHAT APPEARS TO BE THE POSSIBLY IMMINENT COLLAPSE OF THE AMOC AND THE IMACT THAT WILL HAVE.

    THE CBS FOLKS THINK WE “STILL HAVE TIME”. HOPE SO, BUT IT’S MORE LIKELY THAT WE HAVE REACHED OR ARE CLOSE TO SEVERAL TIPPING POINTS AND IT’S TOO LATE.

      Agree 100%, scientists like Stefan Rahmstorf and organisations like the National Oceanography Centre have been telling us how important a healthy functioning AMOC is and warning us of impairment for some years now. But people seem to be unmoved.

      Maybe those organisations that spread denial and obfuscation and made realism = alarm-ism have done more damage than we could have possibly imagined.

      I know they like to say “there’s still time” but shifting away from the FF infrastructure is laboriously slow.

      I’m having my gas furnace replaced with a heat pump and my gas water heater replaced with a heat pump water heater, but there are pretty long waiting lists to get this done. I also plan to swap out my gas-top stove with an induction top, but nothing is in stock right now.

      This is one person who is both willing and able to make the change, but it’s taking a lot longer than even I expected.

    One of the Twitter responses to that view of the fire from the ferry resonated with me:
    “All of the catastrophic movies authors are gonna have super hard time coming up with something that exceeds reality.”
