I would not be surprised, if he has commited suicide within said 3 years or so.
Another well respected doomer (founder of #collapsenet#, forgot his name) have done just that.

Perhaps we can forgo casting aspersions on the messenger and focus on the message. Energy means Michael Ruppert

Shooting the messenger is stupid if he is just a messenger. The problem with doom prophets is that they are like the boy who cried wolf. Every time their ridiculously over-estimated timeline fails to materialize, they just affirm the delusions of the BAU crowd. Since the BAU crowd is the majority, the doom prophets achieve the opposite of what they want.

We need more messengers like Hanson and less of the fringe variety. We also need changes in the law where assorted shills working for fossil fuel interests cannot give science advice. Just like is the case for medicine and even stock investments.

Fully agree D. Premature calls on doom have already compromised the message. Even though the message is accurate and soundly based.

Infinte scream

Thanks Plant for updating us on that guy his latest.
Guy his alias website and way to go Sam personality disorder....hihi

Indeed, at the end of March 2019, it felt like an infinite scream passing through nature! On March 31, 2019, 12:00 UTC, the Arctic was 7.7°C or 13.86°F warmer than 1979-2000, as above image shows, while in parts of Alaska the anomaly was at the top end of the scale, i.e. 30°C or 54°F above 1979-2000, as discussed in an earlier post.

What caused this to eventuate? Firstly, as the Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the world, the temperature difference between the North Pole and the Equator is narrowing, which is slowing down the overall speed at which the jet stream is circumnavigating Earth, while it also is making the jet stream wavier, enabling warm air from the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean to more easily enter the Arctic, while also enabling cold air from the Arctic to more easily descend over Asia and North America.


At the same time, global warming is making oceans warmer. Sea surface temperatures were high in the path of the jet stream on March 15, 2019, as above image shows. The sea surface was 10.8°C or 19.4°F warmer than 1981-2011 at the green circle in the left panel of above image. On that day, surface air temperature there was as high as 7.9°C or 46.2°F, and there were cyclonic wind patterns, as the right panel of above image shows.
High sea surface temperatures are causing winds over oceans to get much stronger than they used to be at this time of year.
The image on the right shows that, on March 15, 2019, the jet stream reached speeds as high as 386 km/h or 240 mph at the green circle. These stronger winds then collide at high speed with the air in front of them. This collision occurs with an even greater force, due to low temperatures over North America and due to the lower overall speed at which the jet stream circumnavigates Earth. All this makes that air gets strongly pushed aside toward the Arctic and the Equator.
On March 30, 2019, strong winds pushed warm air into Bering Strait, resulting in temperatures as high as 2.5°C or 36.4°F, as the image below illustrates.


So the Northern Pacific is a heat engine for the Arctic, The Alaska Range including that high Denali one, Coastal ranges, the highest in the world, Yukon Mckenzie and Rockies act like a barrier for the jet, making the scream, eddies of highs and lows pulling warm air and moisture into the arctic, pushing cold air south. Same for Baffin and Greenland, another barrier for the already damaged jet. The cold blob around and south of Greenland will grow, arctic sea ice down from Nova Zembla to the East, at some point the jet will choose to circle around Greenland and its cold blob, giving a completely different world to live in. Depending on the season and topography, steering the highs and lows, monsoon rains on the arctic shores East and West.

Looks like triple R is back, dry summer forecast for the westcoast.

Sam C. screaming

Unread postby Whitefang » Tue 16 Apr 2019, 14:18:17

Late last month, wind patterns over the North Pacific and North America resembled a screaming face.
The Arctic was as much as 7.7°C or 13.86°F warmer than 1979-2000, while in parts of Alaska the temperature anomaly was at the top end of the scale, i.e. 30°C or 54°F above 1979-2000.
On April 14, 2019, wind patterns over the North Atlantic resembled a growling face, as highlighted by the red ellipse on the image.
Temperatures over Greenland were as high as 14.9°C or 58.7°F at 1000 hPa at the spot marked by the green circle.
On the left, the image shows winds at 250 hPa dipping over the U.S., enabling cold winds to descend deep down over North America.


I guess Sam has been smoking wacky tabacky and looking at nullschool too long..... 8)
But then then the heat is on, climate chaos is here now as we are speeding into the unknown.
Besides Earth Nullschool is one of the best online live tools for monitoring abrupt CC.

Maybe you feel this way but the monolithic nature of your appeals to authority demonstrate that you don't know how to validate credible sources.
