Like climate disruption we have politics being the problem.
I'm going to make more popcorn.
I wonder if the deniers understand C14 dating?
@Mike. Are you kidding?? They understand nothing except for what their leader tells them
"Unmatched in 115,000 years" ozone hole mike? Of course. That was the time of our last Interglacial Period!
@SCCRENDO Agree. They won't even try to make a fake argument but cherry picking is their MO to promote their lies and deceit.
47 C in Australia, dying animals, record colds due to the Climate Disruption of the Polar Vortex, fish dying, etc. Nuclear power plants closed due to waters nearby that can't cool the plants(melt down potential) and it goes on.
The article you have shared here very awesome. I really like and appreciated your work. I read deeply your article, the points you have mentioned in this article are usefulhttp://gunmayhem2.co
News that is hard to read and live with.
Digging the hole deeper and deeper burning and burning more and more Fossil Fuels and building Higher and Taller sea walls. Doesn't seem very intelligent but the Kochs and kingpins need more and more money for?

He also thinks that being called a weathermoron is a compliment at his age
A rigorous study of melted ice forming lakes that flex the Antarctic ice shelves.
One interesting quote:
"Most of the Antarctic continent is covered by the Antarctic Ice Sheet, which is up to four kilometres thick and contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by about 58 metres."
The ultra rich can do this after the big tax breaks they got.
Hey weathermoron. Why don’t you show us the calculation for how much energy it would take for the Antarctic ice sheet to melt and explain why that God awful CO2 molecule cannot make it happen.
@weathermoron. Just because a number is too high for your little brain to comprehend does not mean that it doesn't exist. So if you are trying to prove a point why don't you come up with a calculation and show us where you get your figures from. And indeed you have spat out a number for the doubling of CO2. So show us your sources. You continue to troll these sites with incorrect unsupported statements. So either prove that your statements are correct or shut the F*** up
"high number, it is simply beyond my comprehension level," says Mitch. Just how high can you go @Mitch? How low?
Troll flagged. Continues to only cite the so-called experts, who have been repeatedly shown to be wrong on their analyses.
Indeed the weathermoron made a statement, Is unable to explain his incorrect statement and then goes on to quote our new Trump appointed head of the EPA denier scientist

Climate change is pushing desperate polar bears, kangaroos, and other wildlife into human territory
Human-wildlife interactions can be dangerous, and they're only growing more common.
By Nikki Rust, The Conversation, reprinted in Popular Science
The ten hottest years on record were all during the past two decades and the hottest global ocean temperatures ever were recorded in 2018—a heat increase from 2017 equivalent to 100 million times that of the Hiroshima bomb. Climate change is here and it’s already wreaking havoc.
The polar bear—something of a poster child for climate change—is just one of countless victims in this warming world. It’s thought that if global temperatures continue to rise by an average of 4.5°C since pre-industrial times, which is likely to happen if we do nothing to reduce our carbon emissions, half of the world’s wildlife could be lost from Earth’s most biodiverse places.
As ocean temperatures melt ice sheets—the hunting grounds of polar bears—these large carnivores have to search new areas for food, which is why 52 polar bears “invaded” a Russian town in February 2019, looking for their next meal. Locals were frightened to go outside—with good reason: polar bears can, and do, hunt people.
Unfortunately, climate change is only going to make these negative interactions between humans and wildlife more common. Already, while Australia heats up, wildlife is seeking refuge in towns. Kangaroos have swarmed human settlements in search of food and flying foxes have had to be hosed down by locals to stop them from overheating.
In southern Africa, more frequent droughts have meant thirsty elephants have raided villages to eat crops and pilfer water from storage tanks. Most wild animals are naturally averse to being so close to humans, so their incursions into our lives shows how desperate they are getting.
As climate change begins to take its toll on humans, by reducing crop productivity for example, we are likely to become less tolerant of these sorts of human-wildlife conflicts. Poor African villagers who have had their entire yearly crop destroyed by a herd of hungry elephants can hardly be blamed for wanting to get rid of the problem by killing the animals.
Sadly, elephants—like most other species—are already experiencing precipitous declines in their populations and this is almost exclusively due to human activities.
Climate change will exacerbate conflicts over natural resources between and within species—ourselves included. For example, some observers have suggested climate change was partly responsible for the Arab Spring uprisings, as droughts forced people from rural areas into overcrowded cities and inflamed tensions. If conflicts within our own species can’t be overcome, there is little hope for mitigating conflicts with other species—especially as resources become scarcer.
But there is a small glimmer of hope—there are effective methods to reduce damage caused by wildlife. Polar bears can be scared away from human settlements by flares and water tanks can be made elephant-proof. These technical fixes can help limit immediate conflict between wildlife and humans in the short term, providing much-needed relief in poor communities from the damaging effects of intruding wildlife.
Realistically however, technical fixes to human-wildlife conflict are only a temporary stopgap. To truly address the issue, we must focus on the root cause. Carbon emissions must be reduced—not only for the sake of wildlife but for the survival of humans, too.
Wildlife habitat must be protected to ensure that species have space and food without needing to enter human settlements. Equally, societies must address their insatiable demand for natural resources, reduce overconsumption and excessive waste.
Much of this is easier said than done, of course. Without political will and sufficient funding all of this falls short. Global leaders must step up to the task—and it is partly up to ordinary people to pressure them to act. Movements such as the Extinction Rebellion and the school students organizing global strikes against climate change are an encouraging start and must be built upon.
We need to cause an uproar like our lives depend on it—because they do. We have no planet B, as the refrain goes—and neither do the planet’s 8.7 million other species.

Nice study. It appears the land is also sinking along with sea level rising. double whammy. Mote data like satellite and GPS is ongoing.

Hey rglossin, some are controlled, some are curious. I do agree that "Climate Change" is a type of religion. Ozone hole mike's reaction should tell you how much he has thought about it.
The trolling has taught me one thing. There are many degrees of ignorance. And there is a difference between an IQ of 80 and one of 60. Our weathermoron may turn out to be the smartest idiot on these threads. I am running out of patience. No prize to the weathermoron for being the smartest idiot. Flag them all.
Insurance premiums may be catching up with the climate disruption damages caused by burning excessive amounts of fossil fuels. Some CEOs are responding while others wait for more catastrophic damages before taking action.
