On Saturday, May 5, the activist group 350.org, founded by Bill McKibben, launched a new effort to "connect the dots between climate change and extreme weather." They declared May 5 Climate Impacts Day, and coordinated an impressive global effort of nearly 1,000 events in 100 countries to draw attention to the links between climate change and extreme weather. Their new climatedots.org website aims to get people involved to "protest, educate, document and volunteer along with thousands of people around the world to support the communities on the front lines of the climate crisis." Below are photos from some of the many events on Climate Impacts Day as archived on the climatedots.org website. It is remarkable to view the slide show on their web site and see the degree of global participation this event had; 350.org has created a dedicated and creative global climate movement that will be a major force to reckon with in the coming years.


Figure 1. Volunteers in the city of Salvador, Brazil, have connected the dots have and drawn people's attention to sea level rise and what it impacts in our life.


Figure 2. Madaba, Jordan. "Drops (of water) are dots of hope". A beautiful message from King's Academy in drought-prone Jordan.


Figure 3. Activists hold a banner in front of a damaged coral reef in the vulnerable Marshall Islands. Rising temperatures and increased CO2 uptake are raising the acidity of the ocean, which bleaches and ultimately kills fragile coral reefs.


Figure 4. One thousand students in Bekaa, Lebanon make their dots into the wheels of a giant bicycle to raise awareness about the threat of air pollution, and to advocate for bike lanes.


Figure 5. In 2009, at 17,785 feet in Bolivia's Cordillera Oriental was the Chacaltaya Glacier. Before its unexpected melting, it was home to Bolivia's only ski resort and the first tow-rope ever to be built in South America. Today all that remains is a rocky mountain-top that only receives seasonal snowfall. Photo by Lauren Farnsworth.


Figure 6. Ausable Valley, NY, USA: Young people in New York understand the first-hand impacts of climate change. Hurricane Irene, the third five-hundred-year climate event in the last twelve months, devastated communities in the region and pummeled the beachfront with debris.

In my honest opinion, I don't think it's global warming people don't believe in, it's the hippies telling us to "go green" that we don't believe. It's hard to see the big picture behind the people standing in front of you telling you what they want you to know. The public is fed decieving information to make a profit. They say "go green". Other details are in the fine print. Everything else is hidden from public eyes. How many gimmics out there tell us to do this not that because it's "environmentally friendly" but have major flaws that hinder the main purpose? And call it "eco friendly"? Where's the friendly part? In the long run the decievers are doing more harm than the people they target. Because everyday people figure stuff. After a while people don't know what to believe. It's not the global warming people don't believe in, it's the bull we're fed and fed up with. At least that's my 2 cents.

NASA Weather 'Eye in the Sky' Marks 10 Years

ScienceDaily (May 7, 2012) — For 10 years, it has silently swooped through space in its orbital perch 438 miles (705 kilometers) above Earth, its nearly 2,400 spectral "eyes" peering into Earth's atmosphere, watching. But there's nothing alien about NASA's Atmospheric Infrared Sounder, or AIRS, instrument, a "monster" of weather and climate research that celebrates its 10th birthday in orbit May 4.............

Thanks Hydrus. Hoping to not have surgery, depends on what grade tear it is. I'm about to have an MRI to tell but the doctor says probably just rest, crutches, and a brace for a few weeks unless it looks really bad on the MRI.

Yep, looks like a pretty large slight risk area today too. Plenty of strong boomers around today!
If it is a tear, your tendon will probably not heal to be as strong as it was. Let me know how the MRI turns out. Big dip in the jet bringing cooler weather this week..

In keeping with the current topic, here's where I'm placing my dot:

Link

Climate change will threaten this little piece of Canadian Tundra, as well as the snowshoe hare, beaver, various spruce trees and the native bogs. My family has been hiking and camping up in the Sods for decades, all the way back to my great grandfather. Just make sure if you camp in the fall or early winter, you bring acrtic gear along and don't forget the snow shovel :) Boots are required all year long to protect from the timber rattlers. Keep to the trails, because if you get lost, you may be lost for days...

Make sure you visit wild places like this soon, before they are lost. Where will you place your dot this summer?

The GFS still has "Hurricane Aletta" in the Eastern Pacific and a low pressure area in the Caribbean as it has shown for the past several runs. However, as Levi stated yesterday, the model has shown it consistently for several days at the end of the run, and until it moves up in time, the chances of what the model actually shows aren't that great...at least, not within 384 hours.


Does All of this occur with the upward pulse of the MJO?

WEAK MID LVL VORTICITY AND UPR LVL DIVERGENCE OVER THE ERN GOMEX AND

RUNNING BTWN 6-7C/KM AND SHOULD REMAIN IN THAT RANGE AS A WEAK MID
LVL COLD POOL ASSOCD WITH THE FRONT PRESSES INTO N FL THRU THE DAY.

MOISTURE...INSTABILITY...AND CONVECTIVE INITIATORS ALL PRESENT AND
ACCOUNTED FOR...THOUGH MOISTURE APPEARS TO BE THE WEAKEST LINK. WILL
GO WITH SCT POPS AREAWIDE TODAY AND SCT/ISOLD TONIGHT...HIGHEST
NUMBERS N OF THE ORLANDO METROPLEX...LOWEST AROUND LAKE OKEECHOBEE
TO ACCOUNT FOR THE MOISTURE PROFILE. STORM POTENTIAL WILL BE
ENHANCED DUE TO THE COOL AIR ALOFT AND RELATIVELY STEEP MID LVL
LAPSE RATES...BUT WITH WEAK MID/UPR LVL DYNAMIC SUPPORT...SVR WX
POTENTIAL WILL BE LOW.

TUE-THU...BROAD TROUGHING ALOFT WILL PERSIST INTO LATE WEEK...WHICH

HIGHER POPS (50-60) ON THAT DAY AREAWIDE. FLOW FLATTENS SLIGHTLY

AHEAD OF WEAK COOL FRONT THAT SAGS INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA THU NIGHT.
POPS OVER THE SOUTHERN CWA WILL BE ABOUT 10 PCT HIGHER (40 VS 30).
MAV TEMPS LOOK LIKE THEY RUN ABOUT A DEGREE OR TWO ABOVE CLIMO...
WHICH LOOKS FINE GIVEN THE SW FLOW REGIME. EARLY MAY MID LEVEL
ATMOSPHERIC TEMPS TYPICALLY FAVOR SOME STRONG TO MARGINALLY SEVERE

RTSplayer and a few others got into a back and forth that was never headed anywhere. RTS made some strong arguments but at the same time he superseded his beliefs onto them and all who opposed his view. As I'm sure most of you know, I'm a Christian, and I believe there's a right place and time to share your faith and truths. Sharing is the key word, when one supersedes their truth onto others one of two things will happen, they will shut down, or mock you. No one converts one if you will, by sharing their faith, you can hope that someone seeks but it's God who does the work. Planting the seed of our salvation is our most important job. In the long run you just never know, and that's what faith is all about. And a shout out to Keeper too. We have some views that are the same with GW almost across the board I think, but in realms of OUR truths they couldn't be more far apart. He pokes fun at me and I at him but its in good humor and never demeaning. I thank most everyone for that also.

Fukushima, unreal they only recently let the rest of the world in the help them. Pride of the Japanese people I get(their unselfishness and lack of greed while in great need I think the whole world was awed by), but pride has no place when so much is still at stake. Japanese people want full disclosure too lots of protests for that disclosure and uncertainty remains high. Not to mention the people of Japan want nuclear power gone.
