Global Warming? Under Sea Volcanos

The Axial Seamount
300 kilometers off the coast of Oregon there is an undersea volcano, The Axial Seamount. It erupted in 1982, 1998, 2011 and 2015. New Scientist July 9th, 2007 suggests that there are roughly 3 million volcanoes under the oceans of the world, this one is the only under sea volcano ever, regularly, studied. It is estimated that about 80 % of all volcanic activity on Earth occurs under the oceans. Almost nothing is known about these volcanoes. Scientists do not even have a scale by which to measure volcanoes that erupt under the sea. No system has ever been developed to describe or rate their magnitude like the systems rating Volcanoes above land.




Environment Canada – August 2015 . . . arrow pointing to ’Axial Seamount’- by author
On July 18th, 2011 the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), an agency of the United States Government, declared, in Scientific American and also in Nature Geoscience on July 17th, 2011, that more than 1/2 of all the heat that keeps planet Earth from freezing in the cosmos comes from the fission reactor at the Earth’s core. The other half of the heat that keeps life possible on Earth, comes from the Sun. The earth’s core is said to be 6,230o centigrade . . . Equal to the temperature of the surface of the Sun. Scientists described the core of the Earth as a Fission reactor producing more than one half of all the heat needed to survive in the Universe as we careen through space at 107,000 kilometers per hour circling around the Sun.

Not one research paper regarding ‘Climate Change’ ever written to this day includes that 50% contribution to global warming coming from the Earth’s core. 100 % of all papers written to date describe the effects of the Sun and Solar Radiation as being the only source of energy. How will that effect our long-term calculations considering this one dramatic alteration to statistical analysis? And how will this one enormous fact change our views of climate change?

IPCC steps up warning on climate tipping points in leaked draft report

Climate scientists are increasingly concerned that global heating will trigger tipping points in Earth’s natural systems, which will lead to widespread and possibly irrevocable disaster, unless action is taken urgently.

The impacts are likely to be much closer than most people realise, a a draft report from the world’s leading climate scientists suggests, and will fundamentally reshape life in the coming decades even if greenhouse gas emissions are brought under some control.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is preparing a landmark report to be published in stages this summer and next year. Most of the report will not be published in time for consideration by policymakers at Cop26, the UN climate talks taking place in November in Glasgow.

A draft of the IPCC report apparently from early this year was leaked to Agence France-Presse, which reported on its findings on Thursday. The draft warns of a series of thresholds beyond which recovery from climate breakdown may become impossible. It warns: “Life on Earth can recover from a drastic climate shift by evolving into new species and creating new ecosystems … humans cannot.”

Tipping points are triggered when temperatures reach a certain level, whereby one impact rapidly leads to a series of cascading events with vast repercussions. For instance, as rising temperatures lead to the melting of Arctic permafrost, the unfreezing soil releases methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that in turn causes more heating.

Día de Lucha contra la Desertificación y la Sequía 17 de junio de 2021

  1. Introducción

Cada vez son más las voces, en todo el mundo, que reclaman una recuperación de la pandemia de COVID-19 respetuosa con el medio ambiente. Una recuperación verde que favoreciese economías resilientes y medidas robustas y urgentes para abordar el cambio climático. Semejante cambio invertiría la pérdida de naturaleza y biodiversidad, que carcome los cimientos de la existencia humana y aumenta el riesgo de futuras pandemias. Aunque parezca excesivo, existe un enfoque que puede ayudar a resolver todos los problemas a la vez: restaurar las tierras degradadas. Restaurar las tierras degradadas genera empleo y aumenta los niveles de ingresos; incrementa la seguridad alimentaria; reduce el carbono de la atmósfera, lo que disminuye el cambio climático; recupera la biodiversidad y nos protege de los efectos del cambio climático. Habida cuenta de los billones de dólares destinados a la recuperación de la pandemia y de los compromisos de restauración, ya acordados con motivo del comienzo del Decenio de las Naciones Unidas sobre la Restauración de los Ecosistemas —los cuales abarcan cerca de 1.000 millones de hectáreas — disponemos de una oportunidad excelente para reconstruir mejor empleando tierra sana.


  1. Objetivo

El objetivo del Día de Lucha contra la Desertificación y la Sequía de 2021 radica em demostrar que invertir en tierra sana, como parte de una recuperación verde, supone uma decisión económica inteligente. No solo en cuanto que genera empleo y restituye los medios de subsistencia, sino también con miras a proteger a las economías de futuras crisis derivadas del cambio climático y la pérdida de naturaleza, así como para acelerar el progreso en la consecución de los 17 Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. De esta forma, con el Día de Lucha contra la Desertificación y la Sequía se pretende fomentar medidas que protejan y restauren los ecosistemas naturales, en el marco de la recuperación de la COVID-19. A tal fin, la Convención de las Naciones Unidas de Lucha contra la Desertificación (CNULD) colaborará con el Ministerio de Ambiente y Energía de Costa Rica, anfitrión de esta celebración global, con el propósito de alentar a hogares, comunidades, sector privado y países a mejorar su relación con la naturaleza.

The state of the climate in 2021 BBC Future

After the turbulent year of 2020, BBC Future takes stock on the state of the climate at the beginning of 2021.


From unprecedented wildfires across the US to the extraordinary heat of Siberia, the impacts of climate change were felt in every corner of the world in 2020. We have come to a “moment of truth”, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in his State of the Planet speech in December. “Covid and climate have brought us to a threshold.” BBC Future brings you our round-up of where we are on climate change at the start of 2021, according to five crucial measures of climate health.

  1. CO2 levels

The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere reached record levels in 2020, hitting 417 parts per million in May. The last time CO2 levels exceeded 400 parts per million was around four million years ago, during the Pliocene era, when global temperatures were 2-4C warmer and sea levels were 10-25 metres (33-82 feet) higher than they are now.

“We are seeing record levels every year,” says Ralph Keeling, head of the CO2 programme at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, which has been tracking CO2 concentrations from the Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii since 1958. “We saw record levels again this year despite Covid.”

The effect of lockdowns on concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere was so small that it registers as a “blip”, hardly distinguishable from the year-to-year fluctuations of the carbon cycle, according to the World Meteorological Organization, and has had a negligible impact on the overall curve of rising CO2 levels.

“We have put 100ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere in the last 60 years,” says Martin Siegert, co-director of the Grantham Institute for climate change and the environment at Imperial College London. That is 100 times faster than previous natural increases, such as those that occurred towards the end of the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago.
