This is a terrible topic in my opinion. And in general, for me, my memories of Trump are rather heavy.

Another of the subjects that Isobars just can't understand. Studies before the Kentucky carnage were predicting an increase in tornado intensity--and duration on the ground. Makes sense--heat is energy.

On 20 May 2013, at 2:56 p.m., a tornado touched down in central Oklahoma. Over the next 40 minutes, it ripped through the towns of Newcastle, Moore, and south Oklahoma City. The storm destroyed dozens of houses and cars, two farms, two elementary schools, a strip mall, and several other buildings as it killed 24 people and injured hundreds.

Climate change is known to affect many types of extreme weather, such as hurricanes, droughts, and floods. But until recently, few studies have addressed whether it will affect tornado outbreaks like the one that decimated central Oklahoma. Matthew Woods, a recent graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, aimed to fill that gap with his recent research in atmospheric sciences and meteorology.

“Climate change certainly raises the ceiling for future tornadoes, in terms of strength.”
Climate change certainly raises the ceiling for future tornadoes, in terms of strength,” Woods said. Using a modeling framework called pseudo–global warming methodology, he predicted that the frequency of warm-season tornadoes will decrease slightly in the United States, but those that do occur may be stronger. Meanwhile, the cool season is likely to see both more frequent and more intense tornadoes. Woods will share his results at AGU’s Fall Meeting 2021 during a poster session on 13 December.

Studying the Past to Predict the Future
Tornadoes are very localized, which makes them difficult for climatologists to study. Climate models are intended to describe widespread effects, and most consider only points spaced tens or hundreds of kilometers apart, whereas most tornadoes are around 50–100 meters across. “Climate models, they don’t explicitly resolve or capture storms because the storms fall between the grid points,” Woods said.

Coal and oil continue to lie to cook the planet.

An analysis of nearly 15,000 ice sheets in the Himalayas found that its glaciers are melting 10 times faster in the last 40 years than during the previous seven centuries, according to a new study published in Scientific Reports. The researchers from the University of Leeds found that the ice loss has induced avalanches, flooding and other crises for communities living in the surrounding regions. (The Wall Street Journal)

2021 saw the hottest ocean temperatures ever recorded, marking the sixth consecutive year that the record was broken, according to research published in Advances in Atmospheric Sciences. The heating is due mainly to the climate crisis, and has impacted all oceans worldwide, despite the ongoing La Niña effects that cause Pacific waters to cool. (The Guardian
