Gavin’s TED talk – climate model sensitivity training

Snakeoil salesman make all manner of claims.

Watts Up With That?

Love him or hate him, it is worthwhile to understand where he is coming from, so I present this video: The emergent patterns of climate change

According to TED:

You can’t understand climate change in pieces, says climate scientist Gavin Schmidt. It’s the whole, or it’s nothing. In this illuminating talk, he explains how he studies the big picture of climate change with mesmerizing models that illustrate the endlessly complex interactions of small-scale environmental events.

Video follows, comments welcome.

NOAA Expert: Lake Superior May have ice in June

Watts Up With That?

lice-00[1]Submitted by Eric Worrall

George Leshkevich, a NOAA expert on Great Lakes ice, suggested in an interview that he wouldn’t be surprised if there was ice on Lake Superior in June.

While satellite images show more ice broken up and in smaller floes, there’s “a lot still on the lake,” Leshkevich said.

He said ice on the lake this year compares to 1979 in terms of coverage, with about 67 percent iced over on the comparable date of April 23.

34: Submarine volcano reportedly erupts near Mariana Islands

The Extinction Protocol

May 2014MARIANA ISLANDS – During the past week, we have been keeping a close watch on the Northern Mariana Islands (NMI), as seismometers on the islands record high levels of seismicity from an undersea volcano near the island of Farallon de Pajaros. The seismic signals almost certainly herald an eruption. In fact, submarine explosions were heard by scuba divers who are conducting coral reef research in the area. The divers even felt the shock waves from the explosions, and one of the most powerful ones reverberated through the hull of the NOAA base ship, Hi‘ialakai, leading the crew to think something had happened to the ship. Shipboard personnel also reported a large sulfur slick on the southeast coastline of Farallon de Pajaros. Unfortunately, the ship had to leave the area under threat of an advancing typhoon. If they can get back to the vicinity soon, they may be…
