Listen: Arctic, Alaska, Ice Center discussed on Le Show
"Have nothing to monitor. Since nineteen sixty one the world has lost nine point. Sorry. Ten point six trillion tons of ice and snow as enough to cover the lower forty eight in about four feet of ice. Feels like that in London. Scientists have known for a long time that climate change caused by human activities like burning coal gasoline diesel for like trinity and transport is making earth lose its ice. The study is telling us there's much more to the story says rector of the national snow and Ice Center in boulder who wasn't part of this study the influence of glaciers on sea level is bigger than we thought he says. Want to sell at coastal property glaciers glow in Witter and Trink in summer. But as the warmed the growing lesson tricking more. And of course, the Arctic where there's a lot of glaciers. Is a morning two point eight times faster than the rest of the northern hemisphere. It's an steer Royds. It's hyper active says lead author of another study in environmental research, letters, confirming faster melting another changes in the Arctic. In speaking of the Arctic. The Arctic is being pushed into an entirely new climate one that's outside the experience of longtime residents and native wildlife, according to a new report in the journal environmental research, letters, it's undergoing profound changes that are affecting the rest of the world from the melting permafrost and that releases more greenhouse gases to the disappearance of sea ice. Recent events in the Lasca point this out, Alaska, we'll ask Sarah Palin. She's looking at it right now. She can see it from Russia this year, Alaska, experienced its warmest March on record and warm October through March state at his warmest six years on record. People are coping in Alaska with unusually early start to spring guess that means they're already sneezing ice breakup on rivers life-threatening hunts for food in native communities and many other impacts that likelihood that barrow now known as. Kiev? Vick. I'm gonna call a barrel would reach this year's March. Average temperatures had one and two hundred fifty thousand chance of occurring in a given year. So it's unlikely in Tel Keita north of Anchorage workers who produced Birch syrup had to be called in on an emergency basis. Several weeks earlier than normal temperatures were rising so quickly going to meteorologists and the national weather service. Dave Snyder, he thinks the Nana ice tripod a webcam of a big stick in the middle of frozen. River will melt out earlier this year? Earliest date is April twenty says. I just like saying the Nana ice tripod March is no fluke. He says it doesn't appear to be a one off. If you do the stats, and you Arctic as emerge during the past forty years. Due to hire. Erin seep. Brent temperatures land-based and Alaska is being lost at the rate of about fourteen thousand tons per second that possible support. It's part of an emerging John Clement report sounding the Claxton that the future is now in terms of virtually all observable Arctic climate indicators. Earth more on the same subject, I guess earth's. Glaciers lost nine trillion. US tons in the fifty five years between nineteen sixty one in two thousand sixteen an international team of scientists use satellite and direct field observations to conclude that earth. Glaciers have melted that profound some of ice last half century publishing report in nature. I guess I guess we're we're doing I guess we're having an effect after all. I guess I guess we're really. Important. I think we've proved a now news of the warm leads and Dublin. Is a copyrighted feature this broadcast. So. Less. Let's grim as is grim. Let's let's face it this grim. That's grim. But this is just a little more comical you. Remember the United States army corps of engineers lettuce. Try people. There at work building something on the US Mexican border. That's got us scared. Donald trump. The core has ward contracting. Totally nearly one billion dollars for removal and replacement of vehicle fencing replacing it with pedestrian fencing along two sections of the Mexico border. Now, if I were looking back to the cores work on the hurricane protection system into Orleans. Pre two thousand five I'd say that fencing going to leak the court said in a statement this week that forty six miles of Ballard style barrier. Not just bollards, but Bollard style will be installed near Columbus. New Mexico and eleven miles of it will be installed near Uman. A."
