WMO on extreme climate

WMO on extreme climate

Posted Wed, 17 Jul 2013 12:59:00 GMT by Colin Ricketts

When the world simply watches and does nothing, it is likely that extreme climatic events will simply get worse. WMO have a report from the last decade of data that requires at least another 10 years to confirm our suspicions. Can we wait?

Ice disappearance accelerates

While Rome burned, Nero fiddled with his figures. The figures in this paper won't help us until we can use our satellite sensors a little longer, but the damning report on our political leaders’ inadequacy may well lead us to a similar end to that of Rome.

The likelihood is that various financial cuts will see the end of efficient climate change checks. We need to consider the huge cost of correcting global warming problems can be offset by the relatively minor cost of maintaining proper monitoring.

The Australians might be expected to be a little isolated from the global effects of climate change. Not true, plus they seem to be possibly the most aware of the dangers of selling their coal to Asia while suffering some terrible effects from global warming.

When the two Presidents meet, we expect them to produce something useful. This could be a possible reduction in some of the most dangerous emissions we make. It's likely that storms and droughts have spoken louder than science for them to make this decision.

Worldwide, the fire situation is blazing. More fires, hotter temperatures, and a long season make the situation almost impossible to handle. Here's the US situation.

More research on climate change needed, but too late!

Certain academics claim that we may not have as severe a rise in temperature as is generally believed. On the other hand, they admit we have no idea what additional factors might be adding to global warming.

Ice-free Arctic dangers of a 'cold war'

It's science against politics against climate effects in a 3-way struggle this week. We all know the winner will be climate, unless some pretty good technology can come to our aid.

Temperatures have continued to rise in places and extremes of climate are increasing. Other temperatures have fallen, but we are starting to understand that is just a side-effect.

World Meteorological Day - 23rd March

World Meteorological Day - 23rd March

Posted Sat, 23 Mar 2013 14:40:01 GMT by Michael Evans

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) was created on 23rd March 1950 and in 1951 it was designated as being a specialised agency within the United Nations System. There are now 191 members of the worldwide meteorological community. World Meteorological Day is celebrated each year on the anniversayr of WMO's creation. The theme chosen for 2013 is, “Watching the weather to protect life and property”. This theme highlights the part that WMO plays in the reduction of casualties and damage from weather, climate and water-related hazards.

The three hazards associated with climate change that affect the marine environment are no strangers to air and land either. As temperature has caused ice to melt and currents to change, the oceans have increased in temperature more than the land.

We have no idea how long the Arctic ice will continue to decrease, as it did this year to a record low. Most important perhaps, we need to know the biological response to such extremes and the resultant environmental change.

We thought they were immune to climate change, because they appear to be so resilient but baby elephants suffer from small increases in temperature.

The interminable expansion of oil palm plantations in the Far East is the cause of carbon emissions, climate change and loss of wildlife habitat.
