Global warming unthaws warrior mermaids and mermen frozen during last ice age

Global warming has unthawed an entire race of warrior mermen and mermaids in the Arctic, scientists revealed today. At a packed press conference in Boulder, Colorado, Dr. Mark Xyzzy of the National Institute for Cryosphere Exploration and Tertiary Research on Yetis (NICETRY) revealed the details of the discovery: "We've been operating robot research submarines under the sea ice in the Chukchi Sea north of Barrow, Alaska this winter, as part of International Geophysical Year studies on the dynamics of arctic sea ice loss," commented Dr. Xyzzy. "Last week, one of our submersibles caught a remarkable video of a warrior mermaid, armed with a trident, riding past the submarine on the back of a narwhal. We were able to track the mermaid to her home--an underwater merfolk city at the bottom of the Chukchi Sea. The city had been thawed out in 2005 by warm water currents invading the Arctic due to global warming. These mermaids and mermen had been frozen into the underwater permafrost since the onset of the last ice age, 115,000 years ago. We undertook immediate efforts to establish communications with the merfolk, by sending in divers with underwater writing boards who were able to work out a simple symbol-based language. We learned that the Chukchi Sea merfolk are at war with a tribe of rival merfolk in the Greenland Sea. The two tribes have been fighting a heated underwater battle for dominance of the Arctic Ocean ever since global warming thawed out both tribes in 2005. It is the explosions from their undersea battles that have been the dominant cause of arctic sea ice loss since 2005, not global warming, as had been previously assumed. A team of experienced United Nations negotiators is now in the Arctic, attempting to broker a truce between the rivals and save the arctic sea ice from further destruction."


Figure 1. Merfolk negotiator Urgok Nzgradborkan and an exhausted U.N. diplomat take a break after a grueling all-night round of peace talks.

Critics of climate change science immediately pounced upon the news to unleash a new barrage of criticism against the National Intergovernmental and Territorial Panel to Investigate Climate Change (NITPICC). "The computer climate models used by the NITPICC utterly failed to anticipate the record loss of arctic sea ice due to underwater explosions from merfolk battles," commented spokesman Markoff Chaney of the Very Competitive Free Enterprise Institute. The Institute maintains of staff of top-notch scientists who swear that their funding from the fossil fuel industry does not affect the objectivity of their science. "This new "mermaid-gate" scandal proves that we can't trust climate models to say diddly-squat that's right about global warming, nah-nah-na-nah-nah!" taunted Chaney.

The head of NITPICC, Dr. R. J. Donteventrytopronouncemylastname, conceded that his organization had some work to do. "We're working very hard to incorporate the effect of underwater explosions from merfolk sea battles into the NITPICC models," said Dr. Donteventrytopronouncemylastname. "We've also begun to explore the impacts on sea ice should other denizens of the Arctic unthaw. For instance, the possibility exists that plesiosaurs from the time of the dinosaurs may be frozen in the underwater arctic permafrost. Should global warming thaw out these great leviathans of the deep, the turbulence from their swimming motions could cause significant cracking and breakup of the sea ice. We now have a new plesiosaur parameterization module built into our top models to account for this possibility."

Dr. Xyzzy of NICETRY commented, "I applaud NITPICC's efforts to incorporate their Underwater Merfolk Battle Module and Plesiosaur Parameterization Module into the climate models. However, I caution that they might also need to build modules to simulate the effects of astrology, thermography, ice-nine, and the warming effect of hot air coming out of Washington politicians, before critics of the NITPICC models will be satisfied."

April Fools!

Internet radio appearance today
I'll be appearing with San Francisco-based wunderground meteorologists Shaun Tanner and Tim Roche on The Daily Downpour Internet radio show at 4:20 pm EDT today, to talk about weather, hurricanes, and climate change. There will not be the opportunity to call in today. No foolin'!

So i'm guessing its a rather active fault. is there any Volcano's above or below sea?


If you think about it every fault is active, there always moving, this one might have just hit a little tension to cause the minor quakes.

I'm also watching the PNA this year....as it has been positive all winter which was expected due to the El Nino, but most of the analog years saw a positive PNA through the summer despite a reversing El Nino, and when you get a cold PDO combined with a positive PNA, things can get ugly.

These graphics illustrate why a positive PNA is bad compared to a negative PNA. In a negative PNA you do get blocking over SE Canada during the summer, but it also favors troughing in the central Atlantic, which recurves a lot of storms.

A positive PNA, on the other hand, favors more ridging across the central Atlantic, with a weakness along the eastern seaboard. This tends to direct more storms towards the U.S. coast. It also directs more and stronger storms into the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. You can see this in the two images by looking for dark red tracks (major hurricanes, Cat 3 or higher).

URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH NUMBER 43
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1025 AM CDT FRI APR 2 2010

THE NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER HAS ISSUED A
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH FOR PORTIONS OF

SOUTH CENTRAL IOWA
NORTH CENTRAL MISSOURI

EFFECTIVE THIS FRIDAY MORNING AND AFTERNOON FROM 1025 AM UNTIL

NORTHWEST OF KIRKSVILLE MISSOURI TO 60 MILES SOUTH SOUTHEAST OF
CHILLICOTHE MISSOURI. FOR A COMPLETE DEPICTION OF THE WATCH SEE

REMEMBER...A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH MEANS CONDITIONS ARE
FAVORABLE FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IN AND CLOSE TO THE WATCH
AREA. PERSONS IN THESE AREAS SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR
THREATENING WEATHER CONDITIONS AND LISTEN FOR LATER STATEMENTS
AND POSSIBLE WARNINGS. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CAN AND OCCASIONALLY
DO PRODUCE TORNADOES.

DISCUSSION...LINE OF INTENSE THUNDERSTORMS OVER NORTHWEST MO WILL
PERSIST FOR ANOTHER FEW HOURS WITH A CONTINUED RISK OF DAMAGING
WINDS. INSTABILITY PARAMETERS ARE QUITE WEAK AHEAD OF THE
LINE...BUT VERY STRONG LARGE SCALE FORCING ASSOCIATED WITH MESOSCALE
CONVECTIVE COMPLEX MAY MAINTAIN INTENSITY SOME DISTANCE EAST OF
INSTABILITY AXIS.

AVIATION...A FEW SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WITH HAIL SURFACE AND ALOFT
TO 1 INCH. EXTREME TURBULENCE AND SURFACE WIND GUSTS TO 70 KNOTS.
A FEW CUMULONIMBI WITH MAXIMUM TOPS TO 450. MEAN STORM MOTION
VECTOR 25040.

That's one of the worst places to have the trough as it both helps ventilate the western Caribbean and favors U.S. landfalls along the eastern gulf coast, Florida, and the SE coast.


Yup. And as bad as it seems this solution seems more reasonable than some of the other CFS runs considering the analog years.

Good Morning/Afternoon to all!! Looks like the Dallas-Ft Worth, TX area will be spared a widespread severe weather outbreak today, which is good news. The dry line is producing squally rain showers and a few thunderstorms for us before Noon today.

However, people in East TX, AR, Western LA, and portions of Eastern OK, KS and MO should be on the look out for strong/severe thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours today.

The TWC could call for 100% rain and it would be the nicest day of the whole year.

Never trust the TWC.


yeah the problem with TWC is that they have one forecast office that forecasts for the entire country, but the NWS has a ton of offices that forecast for a localized region, thus allowing the forecasters to be better acclimated to the weather patterns in their local area, creating more accurate forecasts

I can see what looks like a possible hook echo on regular reflectivity radar, but once I look for it based on wind values and shear couplets, it isn't there at all.


Im pretty sure there is no tornado and doppler radar would have picked up the rotation in the clouds.

I'm saying no tornado and really dont see a hook echo at all any where on the radar.
