Too Hot Tuesday


The Southern Ocean around Antarctica is warming at an alarming rate—twice that of the rest of the world’s oceans. Now, researchers have developed more powerful evidence pointing to the human causes.

Though warming had been observed in the past, there was little historical data to allow scientists to pinpoint the causes with much certainty.

In a new study, researchers used climate models, the past observations that did exist and data flowing in from new ocean-going sensors to show how greenhouse gas emissions and the depletion of ozone in the atmosphere have led to both a warming of the Southern Ocean and an increase in its freshwater content. The findings also rule out natural variability as a major source of those changes.

“The observed warming is due to human influence,” said oceanographer Neil Swart, a research scientist with Environment and Climate Change Canada who led the study, published Monday in the journal Nature Geoscience. “That may have been suspected or proposed before, but this is the evidence that really proves it.”

    But you’ll have to take a boat to get out to the Old Town.

      Along the Riverwalk to College Hill, across the rr tracks and up stairs to walk past the burnt apartments with a restoration truck in front. Over to Opal Street to walk past the new student apartments being constructed on the corner lot of a former, unmemorable house. At the end of Opal Street cut over to Indiana Street and the rest of the route is routine. Often shortcuts take longer but this one didn’t. Running total is 75 minutes.

      Now I’m going to try to take a nap for the rest of the afternoon.

        Up to Bryan Hall for a brass ensemble, which was supported by three percussionists. Sounded most well in Bryan Hall with the organ pipes to participate a bit. Encouraged the group to return next year. Shouldn’t be hard as the conductor and 5 of the 14 instrumentalists are from WSU while the rest are from UI.

        Day 3: 33+106=139 minutes.

    When Trump came on in front of the UN, I turned the TV off. No way I would watch him.

    Later I found out he was laughed at. That’s ok, I knew I would see clips of that w/o having to subject myself to watching that putz.

    Then a text, from Jill, come on over and let’s go out for Margaritas. Washed my hair, dried my hair, changed my clothes and I was outta here.

    Is Kavanaugh a War Criminal? [on Twitter]

    Amnesty International USA just issued a “Rare Call for a Halt on Kavanaugh Nomination.”

    The group states: “Amnesty International believes that the vetting of Brett Kavanaugh’s record on human rights has been insufficient and calls for the vote on his nomination for Supreme Court of the United States to be further postponed unless and until any information relevant to Kavanaugh’s possible involvement in human rights violations — including in relation to the U.S. government’s use of torture and other forms of ill-treatment, such as during the CIA detention program — is declassified and made public.”

    Margaret Huang, executive director of Amnesty International USA said: “Amnesty International takes no position on the appointment of particular individuals to government positions, unless they are reasonably suspected of crimes under international law and could use their appointment to the position in question to either prevent accountability for these crimes or to continue perpetration.”

    See report from earlier this month on “Confidential Emails Reveal Kavanaugh Wanted to Make Author of Bush-era Torture Memo a Judge” about just some of Kavanaugh’s documents highlighted by Sen. Cory Booker.
