Sorry, Greta Thunberg.
And here comes an exclusive interview with Sam Carana!
In my view he is one of the leading scientists, who is engaged in the topic of abrupt climate change. But nobody knows who is behind this name, he prefers to remain anonymous.
In this episode of the FasterThanExpected podcast we focus on the question: How is ice melting in the Arctic and methane influencing the global temperature?
Peter Wadhams explains in a video from Nick Breeze that multi year ice is nearly gone in the Arctic ocean. This video is from Jan. 2015.
In this episode I have an interview with Torstein Viddal from Norway, now living on Greenland. He is a novelist, has a master in information science and is an eco activist since decades. Torstein is following data of ice extent and volume in the Arctic very closely. Now in 2017 he has observed the lowest ice volume of millions of years.
During the coming weeks I want to focus my attention on the Arctic. During the summer 2017 there has not been a blue ocean event, what had meant that the Arctic Ocean is nearly ice-free. This would have an enormous influence on the world‘s climate, because the Arctic is one of the global climate motors.
Finland‘s president Niinistö has put it in a nutshell during a meeting in North Russia:
Nick Breeze has conducted an extraordinary interview with Dr. Natalia Shakhova and Dr. Igor Semiletov.
After Dr. Natalia Shakhova and Dr. Igor Semiletov have stirred up the public with the prediction of a 50 Gigaton methane burst, it has been silent from this side for a while. Now they are back with very clear and unvarnished statements.
I am honored to have the opportunity to present five great personalities, who share their knowledge about a burning issue, the melting of the Arctic sea ice and consequential a massive change of the global climate. We may listen to Sam Carana, Guy McPherson, Jennifer Hynes, Peter Wadhams and Kevin Hester, all short and condensed interviews or statements. It may be reasonable to repeat sections a few times. Some arguments recur, but everybody has a different view on it.
This is an graphic of Yale environment 360 from an article of Peter Wadhams:
Meanwhile, the methane situation looks very threatening. The image [below] gives an update on the high levels recently recorded at Barrow, Alaska.
Inzwischen sieht die Methan Situation sehr bedrohlich aus. Das Bild [unten] zeigt ein Update des hohen Levels, kürzlich aufgezeichnet in Barrow, Alaska.
