What Al Gore wont tell you:

West Antarctica's vast ice sheet conceals what may be the largest volcanic region on earth, research has revealed.

Results from the study, which is the first of its kind, will help scientists understand how volcanoes can influence long-term fluctuations in the ice sheet.

I am pretty sure there is no difference between the Arctic and Antarctic. Y'know, with the world being flat and everything.

Newsweek took a crack at something similar to this article a few weeks ago, another article explaining the difference between climate and weather. http://www.newsweek.com/why-snow-south- ... oax-745368

Quote:
Weather indicates the short-term weather conditions—which can change minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour, day-to-day and season-to-season, according to NASA. Climate is all the various factors of weather that are averaged over a longer period of time. For instance, climate might be what you expect, like a very hot summer, but the actual weather could be a hot day with a thunderstorm.

The Guardian has a photo article supporting the original post on why we need to re-define what it means to be a refugee. Photos of Bangladesh. https://www.theguardian.com/global-deve ... hoto-essay

Quote:
According to the World Health Organization, global climate change could contribute to an extra 250,000 deaths worldwide a year between 2030 and 2050, as warmer temperatures lead to more malaria, dengue fever and diarrhoea.

The EJF and others are now pressing for a new UN agreement that would force countries to recognise people displaced by deteriorating environmental conditions linked with climate change. Only legally distinct protection like that conferred on refugees fleeing persecution can effectively address the scale of the problem now growing in places like Bangladesh, it says.

Reefs around the world are also dying. When the ocean dies, we die. Most of our oxygen comes from the ocean, not forests. Story on the great reef bleaching. http://grist.org/article/heartbroken-sc ... ral-reefs/

Quote:
The new study finds that 94 percent of surveyed coral reefs have experienced a severe bleaching event since the 1980s. Only six sites surveyed were unaffected. They are scattered around the world, meaning no ocean basin on Earth has been entirely spared.


NOAA reviewed the climate for 2017 in the US. What they found is not surprising, but still unsettling. The economic impact and devastation climate change has on the economy can't and shouldn't be dismissed, but it continues to be, and Trump is just the latest in a line of dimwits who fails to see the connection. https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/news/national-climate-201712

Quote:
Based on preliminary analysis, the average annual temperature for the contiguous U.S. was 54.6°F, 2.6°F above the 20th century average. This was the third warmest year since record keeping began in 1895, behind 2012 (55.3°F) and 2016 (54.9°F), and the 21st consecutive warmer-than-average year for the U.S. (1997 through 2017). The five warmest years on record for the contiguous U.S. have all occurred since 2006.

During the year, the U.S. experienced 16 weather and climate disasters with losses exceeding $1 billion, with total costs of approximately $306 billion – a new U.S. annual record. The previous costliest year for the U.S. was 2005 with losses of $215 billion driven in large part by Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma and Rita. The number of events (16) ties 2011 for most billion-dollar disasters in a single year. Some of the more noteworthy events included the western wildfire season, with total costs of $18 billion, tripling the previous U.S. annual wildfire cost record. Hurricane Harvey had total costs of $125 billion, second only to Hurricane Katrina in the 38-year period of record for billion-dollar disasters. Hurricanes Maria and Irma had total costs of $90 billion and $50 billion, respectively. Hurricane Maria now ranks as the third costliest weather and climate disaster on record for the nation and Irma ranks as the fifth costliest.


Take Vietnam for example, where climate change kills 1% of it's GDP, compared to less that 0.5% across South East Asia. http://www.imf.org/en/News/Articles/201 ... ange-risks

Quote:
Every year since 1990, natural disasters have cost on average about one percent of GDP and caused 500 casualties. In 2017, Vietnam was affected by 12 major storms, which caused deadly floods and destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes and hectares of crops.


Scientific American believes climate change has played a part in the protests we're seeing in Iran as well. Several sources in the article talk about how climate change has resulted in a number of the issues Iranians are currently upset about. https://www.scientificamerican.com/arti ... -protests/

Quote:
A severe drought, mismanaged water resources and dust storms diminished Iran's economy in recent years, according to experts who study the region. While the protests are largely driven by resistance to the country's hardline conservative government, such environmental factors might have contributed to the largest protests inside Iran in years.

"You have climate change, shortage of water, they can't grow their crops, and now they're getting their cash handouts taken away," said Handjani. "It's a panoply of issues coming together at once."


Investors are catching up, realizing the ecomomic costs climate change risk poses to their investments and profitability. Meanwhile, insurance companies ability to payout claims in the future is being questioned, with Hannover having to sell it's entire stock portfolio in 2017 to pay claims to customers. What happens when insurance companies start to fail? http://www.smh.com.au/business/investor ... 0c9gw.html

Quote:
AXA made one of the last and the largest divestment announcements of 2017 as the global insurer sold €3.1 billion worth of coal and tar sands stocks.

Financial institutions also received a taste of what physical climate change risk looks like.

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, which battered the Caribbean and US Gulf Coast last year, resulted in over a dozen insurance companies recording massive losses.

European insurer Hannover Re took the dramatic step of selling its entire stock portfolio, worth almost €1 billion, to cover the cost of natural hazard claims, while questions were being asked whether the insurance industry could even survive climate change.

Try reading it instead of dismissing it out of hand, because that's what's really dumb.

A copy of The Onion?
Quote:
“We will reschedule our talk on the imminent melting of the polar ice caps when the weather warms up and more people can make it out to hear my dire warnings,” Gore said in a statement. “If a few more of you would just drive your Hummers around in circles for a while, maybe it will warm things up enough for me to give another talk in the spring.”

At publishing time, Gore had settled in to one of his luxury homes and turned on the CO2-emitting heater full-blast to stay warm.

Since you've failed pretty miserably at keeping this thread on track, time to get it back on the rails. If you're confused, read the first post again.

Newfoundland and Labrador's premier Dwight Ball has made the link between extreme weather events, the financial cost of damages & climate change. It's an ecomonic timebomb. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundl ... -1.4494671

He's not alone, as NASA & NOAA confirm 2017 as the 2nd hottest on record. The hottest was 2016. NOAA's own analysis put it at 3rd hottest, but confirms the 5 hottest years on record have all happened since 2010. https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/long ... -nasa-noaa

Australia's assessment support NOAA's analysis of the 5 hottest years as well. 2013-2017 is the highest average recorded temperature ever seen in a 5 year span, and 17 of the 18 hottest years on record all happening this century. Over 260 heat and low rainfall records were set in Australia as well. The heat and lack of rain will continue until the country is a dustbowl. http://www.climatecouncil.org.au/2017-heat-report

The World Economic Forum (WEF, the people who run the Davos meeting) has released it's Global Risks Report 2018. "Among the 30 global risks the experts were asked to prioritize in terms of likelihood and impact, five risks – extreme weather, biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse, major natural disasters and man-made environmental disasters, and failure to mitigate and adapt to climate change – were ranked highly on both dimensions." You can read about the summary on this UN page - https://cop23.unfccc.int/news/extreme-w ... cing-world - Or scroll to the bottom and open the report itself. Page 3 is incredibly interesting, as Climate-relates risks top the chart of likelihood and impact. Top 10 likely to occur starts with Extreme weather events and Natural disasters, while on the Impact side, WMD's are followed by 3 climate-related risks. It's worth noting, WMD scores waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down the list of likely to occur, making climate change the top 3 risks facing the world today. http://www3.weforum.org/docs/WEF_GRR18_Report.pdf

And you can see it happening in Antarctica right now - http://time.com/antarctica-climate-change/
