I hate these kind of stories, where they hype the record breaking heat wave, but they don't mention the previous record, or when. Really, ruins a good story, when I have to go looking for the full story. Damn liberal news media...

Anyway, global warming in Alaska reach 90 Fn degrees, but apparently it's not too uncommon, since there are some people with air conditioners. Probably only get's hot a few days here and there during the summer, not usually worth the price, or wasted storage space. Growing up in Oregon, we never actually broke 90 degrees F, almost made it to 90 one summer, but just came close, few days later, it was back down to low 80's. It did feel hot, but didn't keep us indoors, or really change much of anything. We didn't have Air conditioning either.

I image Al Gore, and his research team will be on the private 737 Max, and rushing up there to survey the damage to the environment, take a few propaganda selfies with the melting ice.

You were right. He just posted the selfie of his Alaska trip:

Wow, and just think last month they had a foot of snow. Wonder why my house hasn't flooded yet, from the rising seas, after all that ice and snow melted, at an alarming rate. Maybe it takes more than a month for pacific water to make it over to the atlantic side.

Yup. Anchorage can get pretty hot and humid, which is why quite a few houses have air conditioners. This is the record for July 4th only. The 'nighttime' low was 59 degF that day as well, leaving an average temperature of 75degF that day this year (about normal).

You must've lived quite near the coast. Portland and stations located in the Willamette valley often reach 90+ degF in the summer.

It has to flow clear down to Cape Horn, you see. The ice in the Arctic blocks the flow, and the Panama Canal works by draining fresh water from a river.


Seattle won't see this surge until we get our highest tides, which occur in the winter around here.

I'm think I'm starting to get it now. This is how we get more severe drought AND floods.

Yeah, it's that whole desert wetlands thing. Death Valley would otherwise be buried in ice like Greenland if it weren't where all the excess Global Warming heat pollution is hiding. All the melted ice dried up a while back.

Heh! I had to take a double look and make sure it was you posting. For a second there I thought sure someone let litesong back on!

No! Ha!

It was this little line right here....

all the excess Global Warming heat pollution is hiding

Remember, this idea is completely legitimate! It's thoroughly documented in the 1992 IPPC report.

The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP), now under development, which will monitor and assess background pollution of all major arctic environments, and includes systematic observations of CO2 and other radiatively active gases


The current IPCC reports discuss other types but strangely never define "pollution."

the reduction of nitrogen use and N2O emissions from agriculture is already a present-day concern due to unsustainable levels of nitrogen pollution (Bodirsky et al., 2012).

Question: Can an 80% nitrogen atmosphere be "polluted" with nitrogen? If I were to pour pure water into Lake Tahoe, would I be guilty of "water pollution"?

suggestions have been proposed that target the warming agents only (referred to as short-lived climate pollutants or SLCPs instead of the more general short-lived climate forcers;

If I may ask, targetted for what? Identification?

There are suggestions that a broader range of polluting activities than only CO2 emissions, for example emissions of air pollutants, and a broader range of impacts than only climate change, such as impacts on air quality, health and sustainable development in general

Really? There are actually suggestions that there is more to pollution than just CO2 and Climate Change?

The potential co-benefits of mitigating air pollutants and how the reduction in air pollution may affect the carbon sink are also important sources of uncertainty

Really? Are they saying that there is uncertainty in a confusing description of something that isn't really a thing? It seemed pretty cut and dried to me.

Reducing coastal pollution, and consequently the penetration of organic carbon into deep benthic habitats, is expected to reduce the loss of oxygen in coastal waters and hypoxic areas in general

Are the fish in the ocean somehow NOT organic carbon? Wouldn't overfishing greatly reduce the organic carbon of our ocean?

Just wondering.

For being 'settled science' they don't seem to be so sure about a lot of things. I wonder if most climatologist reading that sort of crap, get confused by it as well. I sort of doubt most of them read the work of others, barely read what their own team generates. Mostly, they are concerned with keeping their grant money coming, hoping to find ways to get more funding.

Climatologists pore over the wording so they know what to regurgitate.
