Wunderground launches new Local Climate Change section

In honor of Earth Day on Sunday, wunderground has launched a new Climate Change Center, which gives people resources to understand how the climate is changing both globally and in their local neighborhoods. I am particularly pleased with our Local Climate Change feature, which allows one to see how temperature and precipitation have changed over the past 100+ years at the nearest station with a long period of measurements. Predictions from climate models on what the next 100 years may bring are overlaid for each station. Data for most U.S. stations goes back to 1895; we have data for a few stations in Europe that extend back to the 1700s. Berlin has the longest period of record in this database, with data back to 1702.


Figure 1. Screenshot of the Local Climate Change page for Washington, DC. Measured temperatures since 1820 are shown in grey. By clicking on the "Show post-1900 trend:" box, we see that the trend since 1900 has been for an increase in temperature of 1.5°C (2.7°F) per century. Moving the thin vertical red line over the image using the mouse shows that the warmest year on record in Washington D.C. was 1991. Predictions for a future with low emissions of heat-trapping gases like carbon dioxide are shown in yellow; the high emissions prediction is shown in red. Separate tabs are available to examine precipitation and snow.

Skeptical?
Also included in the new Climate Change Center is a section addressing the common skeptical arguments made against climate change. We offer three levels of explanation. The "Basic" level is the default, but one can also see more technical in-depth discussions by clicking on the "See All Explanation Levels" link. The material was developed by physicist John Cook for his excellent skepticalscience.com web site, which is widely referenced in the climate science communication community.


Video 1. I'm featured in this video on extreme weather and climate change done by veteran videographer Peter Sinclair for the Yale forum on Climate Change and the Media this month. I'm also featured in Part 1 of this series. Our new Climate Change Center has a section for climate change videos, which includes a twice-monthly feature from GreenTV detailing the world's notable wild weather events of the past two weeks.

Earth: the Operator's Manual airs Sunday night
Penn State climate scientist Dr. Richard Alley hosts parts II and III of Earth: the Operator's Manual on PBS beginning at 7pm Sunday, April 22--Earth Day. Part I of this excellent series aired in April 2011. The series gives an overview of climate change, but primarily focuses on what we can do to help slow down climate change though smart energy choices. Dr. Alley, a registered Republican, geologist, and former oil company employee, is the Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences at the Pennsylvania State University, and one of the most respected and widely published world experts on climate change. Dr. Alley has testified before Congress on climate change issues, served as lead author of "Chapter 4: Observations: Changes in Snow, Ice and Frozen Ground" for the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and is author of more than 170 peer-reviewed scientific articles on Earth's climate. He is also the author of a book I highly recommend--The Two Mile Time Machine, a superb account of Earth's climate history as deduced from the 2-mile long Greenland ice cores. Dr. Alley is an excellent and engaging speaker, and I highly recommend listening to his 45-minute keynote speech, "The Biggest Control Knob: CO2 in Earth's Climate History", given at the 2010 American Geophysical Union meeting, via this very watchable recording showing his slides as he speaks in one corner of the video. If you want to understand why scientists are so certain of the link between CO2 and Earth's climate, this is a must-see lecture.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and I'll be back Monday with a new post. I'd like to thank Wunderground meteorologist, Angela Fritz for spearheading the creating the new Climate Change Center; it's a product I'll be referring to frequently in the future, and one we'll be updating in the coming months with data on local sea level rise, fire risk, and drought.

Which brings up the question, do icebergs nowadays drift as far south as Titanic's route?

In ColdWar sonar mappings made when the USNavy entered the nuclear era, the sea-ice was deeply carved from below into inverted canyons easily big enough -- ie multiple-tens of metres high&wide -- to hide submarines in our cat&mouse games with the Soviets.
There ain't much (if any) ice left on the ArcticSea that's more than single-digit metres thick... except near coastlines where ice shelves are being pushed out to sea by glaciers.
Since melt time is highly dependent on ice thickness...

WOW, it was sunny when we got up and I calculated 2.1" of rain total since Friday night until Sunday morning.
then got 2 more storm cells thru late morning for another .6" for now total of 2.7" in my neighborhood...and looks like another cell is coming from SW into our area....

This has been a great rain producer for Broward County.

I agree with what he said about pollution. I have traveled a lot, and been here a while. I have seen pollution so bad, that it has to be seen in person, because it literally is beyond a languages ability to describe it.Ecerpt from N.G...Hazardous wastes are poisonous byproducts of manufacturing, farming, city septic systems, construction, automotive garages, laboratories, hospitals, and other industries. The waste may be liquid, solid, or sludge and contain chemicals, heavy metals, radiation, dangerous pathogens, or other toxins. Even households generate hazardous waste from items such as batteries, used computer equipment, and leftover paints or pesticides.

The waste can harm humans, animals, and plants if they encounter these toxins buried in the ground, in stream runoff, in groundwater that supplies drinking water, or in floodwaters, as happened after Hurricane Katrina. Some toxins, such as mercury, persist in the environment and accumulate. Humans or animals often absorb them when they eat fish.

The rules surrounding hazardous waste are overseen in the U.S. by the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as state departments of environmental protection. EPA requires that hazardous waste be handled with special precautions and be disposed of in designated facilities located throughout the United States, which charge for their services. Many towns have special collection days for household hazardous waste.

A common hazardous waste facility is one that stores the waste in sealed containers in the ground. Less toxic waste that is unlikely to migrate, like soil with lead, is sometimes allowed to remain in place under the ground and then be sealed with a cap of hard clay. Communities may eventually decide to use these sites for golf courses or parks, or to label them %u201Cbrownfields%u201D sites, suitable for commercial or industrial uses.

Violations, like dumping hazardous waste in town dumps to avoid paying the fees charged by waste transporters and waste facilities, may result in hefty fines.

EPA began regulating hazardous waste in 1976. Many toxic waste dumps that pose a threat to communities today are holdovers from the era prior to 1976. Other waste sites are the result of more recent illegal dumping.

The federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act regulates how hazardous waste must be handled and stored. It also lists some but not all of the wastes that EPA considers hazardous. Substances that are not on the list but are toxic are also considered hazardous waste and subject to EPA%u2019s rules. The Superfund Act contains rules about cleaning up hazardous waste that was dumped illegally.

Communities and environmentalists have long complained about lax enforcement of hazardous waste regulations, both by the federal government and state governments. Meanwhile, many corporations argue the regulations are too strict and lobby Congress to soften or remove certain rules.

One EPA rule that has proved very controversial governs industrial sludge. EPA allows sludge containing heavy metals to be included in fertilizers that are used by farmers on food crops or sold directly to the public. Environmental and other organizations say dangerous levels of the metals are taken up by some plants and subsequently eaten by people, with particularly negative effects on children.

Henry Margusity Fan Club:


I saw the Euro last weekend, we all did, but instead rushing out and hyping that a historical snowstorm is coming, I/we took the cautious route knowing that storms like sometimes do not occur. So I give JB kudos for reading the Euro correctly. I will be the first to say that I did not believe the storm was coming and under-predicted the snow event until I was sure. Yes I would agree, I did not hype this one up, but in the end, I did change course and go with the consensus of the models Friday and Saturday. So I will be the first to say that I was wrong not going with the Euro idea initially. Part of me does not want to see snow in April, especially knowing the damage that can be done.

As for JB, my rants are entirely due to the fact that he is saying things about good people and good organizations which are totally wrong to be saying. If he has a point about global cooling, then make it but don't call people liars because they express their views on global warming. Dr Mann for example is a good person and a good family man and he does not need anyone to be calling him a liar. He's earned his place in science at Penn State by doing the research and work to come up with his conclusions on global warming. If you don't like his conclusions, so be it, but don't call him a liar and don't call my meteorological organization the AMS liars because you don't agree with them. Polluting our Earth is a serious matter and whether global cooling or warming is occurring does not matter to me, what matters is the end result and that result could be something catastrophic if don't stop polluting our Earth. So instead of bashing people and calling them liars, propose changes to help the environment.


Even if he is incorrect, Henry Margusity is a great guy. I met him in person and it was an honor. He is and will be my favorite met!

Could not see this last night, maybe tonight if this low gets out of here and we get a cloudless night..............................The 2012 Lyrid meteor shower peaks overnight between late Saturday, April 21, and early Sunday, April 22. The meteors will appear to radiate outward from the constellation Lyra and the best time to see them will be between midnight and sunrise on Sunday morning.

I think that's too high... I think only the higher elevations will see major snow, and I think 12 inches will be the maximum, with just very isolated higher amounts in the highest elevations
foot and a half totals are possible over high terrain regions 1800 feet or higher where the event will be all snow or wet snow for the duration it will go out the way it came in even our local weather guys are like yeah right lets wait to see it before we beleive it but abnormal events are hard for anyone to beleive even for weather forecasters they are hoping that the warm ground will melt most away but that depends on how fast and furious the snow falls and how cold the winds can keep the temps we shall see soon enough

Morning again all. Sun's fully out now, with light variable breezes. The ground is still moist from our overnight rain, so I'm taking the opportunity to transplant some shoots and sprinkle a few more oregano seeds in hopes they will germinate before the seriously hot wx gets here.

This front is forecast to back North over us at some point during the next 48 hours, due to the Nward movement of the whole low pressure system to which it is attached. I'm waiting to see how well this verifies...

I think that's too high... I think only the higher elevations will see major snow, and I think 12 inches will be the maximum, with just very isolated higher amounts in the highest elevations


Check the storm totals for Snowshoe and Canaan Valley, WV after the storm. You may be surprised (or, of course, I may be!) 14 inches is definately possible.

In my area, we are only predicted 2-4 inches. This sounds OK, until you realize that May is only 10 days away- and the trees are out in leaf. This will October all over again.
