Youtube video: Richard Lindzen on climate change

Even though I admit to a feeling of validation when I saw this video I'm more interested in what it didn't say... and the thoughts of you folks who disagree with my climate change conclusions.

Water sequestration is a viable option if there is water in the atmosphere and ground. However, when those go, so goes living things as we know them.  

There are some things I can do to slow the flow of water off the soils into ravines and rivers and ultimately into the ocean.  

*catch and store rainwater;  

*create hugelkulturs;  

*use gray water;  

*drip irrigation & soaker hoses;

The 12-month running global temperature has increased to 1.246°C above preindustrial.

Arctic Sea Ice Blog

It’s not just that we’re seeing record global heat. It’s that 2016’s jump in global temperatures may be the biggest single-year spike ever recorded. It’s that the world may never again see annual temperatures below 1 C above preindustrial averages.

Last month was the hottest April in the global climate record. Not only was it the hottest such month ever recorded — it smashed the previous record by the largest margin ever recorded. [emphasis mine]

This compares global April temperature averages. That big jump at the end was last month.

Yes, CO2 based greening is encouraging. But greening is limited by water availability, and the plants contain proportionally more carbohydrate, less protein and minerals.

Interesting article on BBC about how climate change is causing a greening of many areas of the earth. THe CO2 has a fertilizing effect making plants and trees grow more lush and green - a lot more green. Interesting information.

Hopefully cheezburger.com will get a few people's attention:

SAVE THE EARTH! IT'S THE ONLY PLANET THAT HAS CATS(More precisely, Earth will survive whatever drastic step changes happen to its climate, but keeping the planet habitable for humans and kitties would be a good thing!)

Wild weather? What wild weather?

A new study indicates that, because our current rate of CO2 increase is an order of magnitude higher than during the PETM extinction, ours will have more severe ocean acidification and ecosystems will be hit harder.

What we’re doing to the Earth has no parallel in 66 million years, ...
