La Niña Is Kicking El Niño's Ass | #Climate #ClimateChange 

La Niña Is Kicking El Niño's Ass | #Climate #ClimateChange  | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Move over, El Niño. You may be the strongest such climate pattern humans have ever recorded, and you may have given California crabs this week, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration can see right through you, and you’re losing ground.

That’s right: the El Niño phenomenon that fueled endless weird weather, hot months, and Chris Farley jokes this past year is on the downswing. And if the latest NOAA data is any indicator, La Niña is liquored up and ready to rage. The Hot Blob that’s been cooling its heels over the Pacific for the past year—a constant reminder that we’re in the steamy clutches of a monster El Niño—is now being undercut by a deeper pool of colder water.

El Niño reaches 'strong' intensity, will dramatically reshape world's weather

El Niño reaches 'strong' intensity, will dramatically reshape world's weather | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
A strong El Niño event is now underway, but it's not yet clear if it will become the strongest one on record or provide California with much drought relief.

UN panel: Global warming human-caused, dangerous - US News

UN panel: Global warming human-caused, dangerous - US News | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON (AP) — This Aug. 19, 2014 file photo shows flash flood waters from the overrun Skunk Creek flood I-10 in northwestern Phoenix. Global warming is here, human-caused and can already be considered dangerous, a draft of a new international science report says, warning that it is increasingly likely that climate change could be irreversible.

With climate change, today's '100-year floods' may happen every three to 20 years: research

With climate change, today's '100-year floods' may happen every three to 20 years: research | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Last August, Hurricane Irene spun through the Caribbean and parts of the eastern United States, leaving widespread wreckage in its wake.

 

However, researchers from MIT and Princeton University have found that with climate change, such storms could make landfall far more frequently, causing powerful, devastating storm surges every three to 20 years.

NASA - Is a Sleeping Climate Giant Stirring in the Arctic?

NASA - Is a Sleeping Climate Giant Stirring in the Arctic? | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Frozen Arctic soils hold vast stores of carbon that may exacerbate global warming. A NASA Arctic campaign is looking for signals that may hold a key to Earth's climate future.
Gust MEES's insight:

 

Ultimately, the scientists hope their observations will indicate whether an irreversible permafrost tipping point may be near at hand. While scientists don't yet believe the Arctic has reached that tipping point, no one knows for sure. "We hope CARVE may be able to find that 'smoking gun,' if one exists," Miller said.

La NASA illustre le réchauffement climatique depuis 1880

La NASA illustre le réchauffement climatique depuis 1880 | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

La Terre se réchauffe, et ce, toujours plus vite. Si les scientifiques ne cessent de le rabâcher, à coup d'études et rapports documentés, une poignée de climatosceptiques continue de nier cette réalité, arguant d'une manipulation planétaire. Alors, quoi de mieux qu'une modélisation pour mesurer le phénomène ?

 

C'est ce qu'a effectué la NASA, en résumant dans une vidéo de 26 secondes 131 ans d’évolution des températures sur Terre, de 1880 à 2011.
