Faster-Than-Expected™ - Methane/Permafrost Edition

"The microbes are waking up." —Sergei Zimov

"We're ... right at the threshold of some abrupt change." —Katey Walter Anthony

from @ClimateState (including material by @rjeskow)

Faster Than Expected™ - Thwaites Glacier Edition

A gigantic cavity is growing under Thwaites Glacier: "The new discovery implies that this limitation most likely causes those models to underestimate how fast Thwaites is losing ice." nasa.gov/feature/jpl/hu…

Faster Than Expected™ - Species Extinction Edition

"Rising temperatures could make some species sterile and see them succumb to the effects of #ClimateChange earlier than currently thought"

#ExtinctionRebellion #SchoolStrike4Climate
Faster Than Expected™ - Sea Level Rising Edition

"they believe we’re losing about a half inch of relative sea level every year, but it may be more than that, a problem that could have profound implications"

#ExtinctionRebellion #schoolstrike4climate
Faster Than Expected™ - Climate Disruption Edition

"the new year is carrying on where the old one left off, with growing signs #ClimateDisruption is accelerating at a more destructive rate than many scientists predicted"

Faster Than Expected™ - Climate Protest Special Edition

"I’m an enormous admirer of @GretaThunberg and I am in awe of how much energy and attention #ExtinctionRebellion has generated in such a short time." —@dwallacewells

Faster Than Expected™ - Thwaites/Antarctic Melting Edition

"A separate study released last week found that Antarctica was contributing more to rising sea levels than previously thought": pnas.org/content/116/4/…

#ExtinctionRebellion #schoolstrike4climate
Faster Than Expected™ - Methane/Permafrost Edition, Part II

"If [increased] rain falls in spring or early summer, [permafrost] areas could release more methane into the atmosphere than is currently predicted"

#ExtinctionRebellion #schoolstrike4climate
Faster Than Expected™ - Glacier Retreat Edition

"In light of these new calculations, we have to assume that glaciers in High Mountain Asia might disappear more quickly than we thought so far"

#ExtinctionRebellion #SchoolStrike4Climate
Faster Than Expected™ - Methane Release Edition

"Methane's increase since 2007 was not expected in future greenhouse gas scenarios compliant with the targets of the Paris Agreement"

#ExtinctionRebellion #SchoolStrike4Climate
Faster Than Expected™ - Greenland Melting Edition, Part II

"The only thing we can do is adapt and mitigate further global warming – it’s too late for there to be no effect. We are watching the ice sheet hit a tipping point."

Slower Than Expected™ - Forest Soil Recovery Edition

"forest soils recover from disturbances slowly over many years — up to 80 years following a wildfire and as many as 30 years after logging, much longer than previously thought."

Faster Than Expected™ - Ocean De-oxygenation Edition

"Climate models projecting future change have also routinely underestimated the oxygen losses already observed around the world’s oceans"

Faster Than Expected™ - Bering Sea Ice Melt Edition

"Historically we shouldn’t be seeing another year like [2018], but under that argument, this year shouldn’t have happened. What we saw this year was predicted to happen in 2050.” —Phyllis Stabeno, NOAA
Faster Than Expected™ -Glacier Melt Edition

"The most comprehensive measurement of glaciers worldwide found that thousands of inland masses of snow compressed into ice are shrinking 18% faster than an international panel of scientists calculated in 2013"
Faster Than Expected™ - Bering Sea Edition

"Scientists who study the northern Bering Sea say they’re seeing changed ocean conditions that were projected by climate models – but not until 2050."
More Than Expected™ - Nitrous Oxide Edition

"nitrous oxide emissions from thawing Alaskan permafrost are about 12 times higher than previously assumed"
