Based on current temperatures in the #Arctic & sea surface temps elsewhere, there is a chance of a blue ocean event occurring within the next 5 years. If this happens, it will signify a shift into a totally new #climate paradigm, one that pushes civilization to the brink. #NASA
If you thought the heating of the oceans was accelerated by a lack of Sahara dust or shipping exhaust ain't seen nothing yet.
For those 🤡 🤡 that think this is fake etc - the data is acquired by the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) instrument aboard the Global Change Observation Mission 1st-Water "SHIZUKU" (GCOM-W1) satellite.

Scientists have mapped the biggest cumulative logjam, covering about 20 square miles of a delta high in the Canadian Arctic. And, it turns out, it stores A LOT of #carbon.… 1/10
Rivers and deltas throughout the #Arctic collect driftwood for hundreds of years. Because it’s so cold, centuries-old trunks are often preserved in pristine condition, indiscernible from a tree that fell a decade ago.… 2/10
All those trees are storing carbon, just like their living relatives. And although scientists know these large, woody deposits are all over the Arctic, they don’t know much about how big they actually are. 3/10

On the Arctic in the new Foreign Policy Concept of Russia
1/ In the new concept the Arctic issues discussed separately, it means this is a separate regional direction of Russia's foreign policy. And it is the second after “the near abroad” https://alex-leshy.livejour...
2/ Although peace and stability in the Arctic declared as Russia’s goal, but “the course of maintaining constructive international cooperation” not present in the document.
3/ A main issue in the document is about a change of Moscow’s attitude towards non-Arctic states. This can be considered as a main turn in Russia’s Arctic FP. Moscow have always adhered to the position of a "closed club" on the Arctic - "The Arctic for the Arctic countries".

1. Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology & Environmental Monitoring (ROSGIDROMET) and Admiralty Shipyards signed a contract today for a new research expedition vessel R/V Ivan Frolov for the Arctic & Antarctic Research Institute (AARI).
@CovertShores @Capt_Navy @The_Lookout_N @KaptainLOMA @CislakJaroslaw @BuchananLiz @WendtWeiss 2. R/V Ivan Frolov will replace the existing R/V Akademik Fedorov built in 1987 by the Finnish company Rauma-Repola.
"The new R/V is necessary for the smooth operation of Antarctic expeditions. Our country has 5 year-round stations & 5 seasonal bases on the continent."
@CovertShores @Capt_Navy @The_Lookout_N @KaptainLOMA @CislakJaroslaw @BuchananLiz @WendtWeiss 3. "Current vessel that's delivering polar explorers & cargo to Antarctica is already becoming obsolete & soon will be "five in one": a tanker, an icebreaker, a passenger, cargo & scientific ship." - Alexander Kozlov, Minister of Natural Resources & Ecology of Russia.

Fantastic presentation by Sophie Weeks of @polareducators at #ASSW2023 that made me think about how to communicate across knowledge systems🧵 #Arctic #Indigenous #IndigenousKnowledge #bridging #traslating #Westernscience #policymakers
with different epistemologies, ways of knowing, ontologies, understandings of nature and human existence, and axiologies, values, value judgements, and ethics.
Using #art to demonstrate that even working within one knowledge system has translation issues when shifting mediums from drawing to speaking or reading. The drawing demonstrated that objectivity is in fact a myth, having scientists all draw the same thing can demonstrate that.

In coming days the UK and much of Europe is going to suffer DEEP freeze due to a sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) event. Warnings are out all over Europe due to a dramatic shift in atmospheric air moving from the North Pole. MORE…
2/SSWs are tied to #GlobalWarming weakening of the #PolarVortex system that clockwise circles the North Pole, holding subzero air over the #Arctic. Severe SSWs reverse the spin, shift warm ocean currents & slam the No Hemisphere w/deep freeze air.
3/Irish forecasters say that a SSW will slam Ireland next week.
In a SSW stratospheric winds, "reverse frm westerly to easterly & the temps in the stratosphere over polar regions rise significantly in just a few days."
Pole gets hotter; Europe colder.

🧵One of the most fascinating topics I've reported on: Unmanned technologies (both UUVs and UAVs) could offer the West an opening to catch up with #Russia, bogged down in Ukraine, in establishing a foothold in the warming #Arctic, according to experts.…
2. The West is fairly late to the game against #Russia’s long-standing presence in the region (key to its national security and economic development), where experts agree it has succeeded in maintaining military superiority over the last decade.
3. The Kremlin has secured its #Arctic military capability primarily by banking on a “superior number of ice-breakers, its pioneering of Arctic-capable military drones, upgrading off-shore bases, missiles, runways and radar systems,” says @DrJamesRogers.

False narratives about the #Arctic & #permafrost are being driven by the media. Here are some facts from science. 1) permafrost underlies 1/4 of N hemisphere land and 1/2 of Canada. Frozen ground is a backbone for ecosystems and infrastructure. 1/…
Fact 2: It’s false to say thaw is unprecedented as it has happened in the past. However, rates of thaw are getting faster w/ warming, and because of climate change some permafrost will never return. Here is a video of me realizing ancient permafrost in Alaska is gone forever. 2/
Fact 3: Thawing permafrost is not why atmospheric methane (CH4) has increased so quickly in recent years. For now, permafrost thaw is a CO2 story, not a methane or nitrous oxide story. Hey climate reporters - Let’s keep our eye on the true story which deserves attention. 3/

Today's Eurasia Club luncheon seminar is with @FletcherSchool @FletcherRussia Visiting Scholar Andrey Todorov. The topic for today's session is focused on #arctic governance. ImageImage
"The U.S. is an #Arctic state and so are other countries many people chose to study in. Even Russia is an Arctic state. Hence it occupies an important place in foreign policy in myriad ways:" Andrey Todorov @FletcherSchool
Some of the topics the audience associated with #arctic

1. The Arctic is at the forefront of multilateral cooperation.
2. Wildlife conservation.
3. Melting ice caps and climate change.

Andrey Todorov: "What happens in the Arctic does not stay there."

The wonderful #PA01 #townhall held by @ashley_ehasz was a great success tonight.

But present outside was #CardboardFitz, a prop from past @FridaysWithFitz events who provided a history of #GOP #MAGAextremist Brian Fitzpatrick's worst votes!

📷 by Steve C.
Thx, Steve!
An oldie but a goodie.

Back in 2017, #PA01 #GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick voted YES on the classic #Trump, Paul Ryan and #McConnell's #GOPTaxScam, which forked benefits over to the ultra rich and corporations.
#PA01 Rep. Fitzpatrick may pretend to be #green, but whenever given the choice, he picks his donors (big banks, #fossilfuel corporations) over the #environment.

De-regulating pipelines, opening the #arctic to drilling, etc. He votes with the money, not with the environment.

THREAD - Startling example of feedback loops in Nature that are disrupted by #GlobalWarming:
- normally large colonies of algae can't grow in the #Arctic seas because they are bereft of nitrogen
- but enormous algal blooms have increasingly appeared appeared in this century

- turns out #climate induced wildfires in No America & #Siberia produce large amounts of nitrogen in the atmosphere
- that nitrogen falls on #Arctic seas, fueling algal growth
- and huge algal blooms block oxygen entry to the seas
- fish & other marine life forms suffocate, as the massive algal blooms block oxygen infusion into oceans
- the blooms also block sea ice formation, so
- the white ice albedo effect, reflecting hot sunlight away from the North Pole decreases

Each spring, #caribou migrate from their winter habitat to calving grounds. We analyzed GPS collars from 1000+ caribou and found that herds across the #Arctic are synched up and all depart on this migration around the same time 🤯 1/5
The timing of spring migration departure is related to large-scale, ocean-driven climate indices. In other words, continental-scale patterns in temp and weather trigger caribou to head north at the same time. 2/5
BUT, even if they leave at the same time, not all herds arrive on their calving grounds at the same time. The speed of migration is highly variable, and later departure dates ≠ later arrival. Are some caribou just more punctual than others? 3/5

3/ The oceans in 2021 hit record heat levels, especially near the Poles. Hotter seas can't produce winter ice, so the oceanic system is unable to compensate for ice cap summer melting.

Yes, the term “Esk*mo” is derogatory.

The word “Esk*mo” is an offensive term that has been used historically to describe Inuit peoples throughout their homelands, Inuit Nunangat, in the arctic regions of Alaska, Greenland, and Canada, as well as the Yupik of Alaska and northeastern Russia, and the Inupiat of Alaska. Image
The use of “Esk*mo”, an exonym (a name given to a group of people by another group), and perpetuates harmful stereotypes of the Inuit as remote and politically insignificant, while also romanticizing the Arctic. Image
