    Scientific American - 2019 - what to expect...

    A great article by Scientific American about Climate Change, and what to expect in 2019.

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...imate-in-2019/

    As urgency grows around the need for stronger climate action, so does demand for a deeper understanding of how the planet is already changing—and what to expect in the coming decades.

    Climate scientists have published study after groundbreaking study in the past year. They’ve investigated the ways climate change has influenced extreme weather events, including everything from Hurricane Florence to record-breaking heat in Europe. They’ve documented accelerating ice loss in Greenland, new melting spots in Antarctica and alarming losses of Arctic sea ice. They’ve investigated changes in enormous ocean currents and major atmospheric patterns.

    Why decades? Tell me how the environment is going to change this year.

    I have been watching this happen for many years and pointing it out on occasion to those interested, I have also dealt with many, many "deniers" as they are called which has led me to the conclusion that it no longer matters regardless. If they are correct then we have nothing to worry about and if I am correct there is nothing we can do about it anymore. Now that the Methane and Albedo tipping points have been crossed it is basically a slow motion disaster movie and we are just in the audience now. Time to buckle up for the ride.....I am just glad I will be dead before it really gets bad.

    Extreme weather events are no more common now that they have been for decades. Even the droughts in California appear to be a regression to the mean when historical patterns are examined.

    Strong tornadoes are much less common in the US. There wasn't a single one in 2018, the first time in recorded history that has happened.

    The low level of warming increase that we have seen for the last 20 years appears to be continuing. Perhaps before raising the alarm bells over global warming you should wait until there is a significant amount of global warming.

    They should change the name of that magazine to "Scientismic American".*

    Just more BS. When scientists become advocates, advocacy is presented as science.

    I guess you didn't read the article...

    Extreme event attribution has been a rapidly growing field since the first attribution studies were published 15 years ago. Recently, scientists have been able to link a wide variety of weather events to climate change, including the devastating Hurricanes Harvey, Maria and Irma. They’ve also connected extreme heat, floods, droughts and other events around the world to rising temperatures.

    All those alleged "links" have been shown to be bogus.

    How does that answer my question.
    Show me something that can be measured today and again in jan 2020 and tell me what the new measurement is going to be. If they could do that it would go a long way toward convincing me they know what they are talking about.

    My question is, are those actually things said by climate scientists or are they things said by well meaning but ignorant activists, or even worse, reporters who know nothing about science and either through ignorance or through a desire for sensationalist headlines report incorrectly?
