James Hansen : ‘This is the last chance’

6/23/2008

“We see a tipping point occurring right before our eyes,” Hansen told the AP before the luncheon. “The Arctic is the first tipping point and it’s occurring exactly the way we said it would.”

Hansen, echoing work by other scientists, said that in five to 10 years, the Arctic will be free of sea ice in the summer.

The alarming loss of sea ice which has grown worse each summer over the past several decades, has taken a sharp turn for the worse: this year the loss is right in the middle, the most resilient part of the ice cover. This could lead to a completely ice-free Arctic Ocean by September.

    Has Paul Beckwith posted much recently?
    Like an explanation why he was so wrong?

  2. He wasn’t wrong…they never are.

    “FORECAST THROUGH MONDAY FOR THE BEAUFORT SEA…EASTERLY FLOW WILL
    PERSIST OVER THE BEAUFORT SEA THROUGH MONDAY WITH THE WEAKEST WINDS
    THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. NEW ICE WILL CONTINUE TO FORM ALONG THE
    NORTH COAST AND ALONG THE MAIN ICE EDGE WITH RAPID GROWTH DURING
    PERIODS OF CALMER WINDS. EXPECT THE SEA ICE FREE WATERS BETWEEN 150W
    AND 140W TO FILL IN WITH NEW ICE BY MONDAY… AND THE REST OF THE
    MAIN ICE EDGE TO EXPAND TO THE SOUTH 15 TO 25 NM BY MONDAY.

    FORECAST THROUGH MONDAY FOR THE CHUKCHI SEA…NORTHERLY TO
    NORTHEASTERLY FLOW IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST OVER THE CHUKCHI SEA ICE
    EDGE THROUGH MONDAY. THE COLD NORTHERLY FLOW WILL AID IN THE
    EXPANSION OF THE SEA ICE EDGE… ESPECIALLY DURING PERIODS OF LIGHTER
    WINDS. EXPECT THE ICE EDGE TO EXPAND TO THE SOUTH 25 TO 35 NM THROUGH
    MONDAY. ”

    Huge increases expected in the next five days.

    A stable climate for the last 11,000 years?. Today’s climate is more stable than ever in the last 11,000 years. Wots he smoking? I think his balls and brains are in the same bag.

    [This seems to be appropriate for the present circumstances.
    To God, worldly “wisdom” is foolishness.]

    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:

    “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
    And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

    Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

    Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”

    1 Corinthians 1:18-21; 3:18-20
