The Greenland ice sheet poured 197 billion tons of water into the North Atlantic in July alone
Ongoing extreme melt event continues, with more than half the ice sheet experiencing melting on July 31.
Studies have shown that ice melt periods like the one seen in 2012 typically occur about every 250 years, so the fact that another one is taking place only a few years later could be a sign of how climate change is upping the odds of such events.

According to DMI’s Mottram, the short-term, extreme melt event is a sign of climate change’s increasing influence on the Arctic.

“So yes it’s weather but it shows that in spite of internal variability the background signal of a warming climate is still “winning,” she said via a Twitter message. She said state-of-the-art climate computer models have been unable to simulate events like this, which hampers scientists’ ability to accurately predict Greenland ice melt and, therefore, future sea-level rise.

Luntz played a role in turning the environment into a partisan battlefield. During President George W. Bush’s first term, his infamous memo warned Republican party leaders that they were losing “the environmental communications battle,” an issue on which Bush was “most vulnerable.” He advised them to emphasize a lack of scientific certainty around climate change and drop “global warming” for the less scary-sounding “climate change.”

Luntz is now offering his messaging services to the cause of climate action. “I’m here before you to say that I was wrong in 2001,” Luntz told the Senate committee. “Just stop using something that I wrote 18 years ago, because it’s not accurate today.”

STATEMENT - 

WASHINGTON (July 25, 2019)— Congressmen Francis Rooney (R-FL) and Daniel W. Lipinski (D-IL) both introduced bipartisan bills today to address climate change. While the details differ between Congressman Rooney’s Stemming Warming and Augmenting Pay Act (SWAP Act) and Congressman Lipinski’s Raise Wages, Cut Carbon Act ( H.R. 3966), both bills would a meaningful price on carbon that increases over time. Both bills dedicate the bulk of the revenue to reducing payroll taxes for working Americans and their employers. Additional funds will provide needed assistance for R & D for clean energy, adaptation and assistance on energy costs to low-income households.

Below is a statement from Dr. Andrew Steer, President & CEO, World Resources Institute:

“We are encouraged by the bipartisan leadership shown by Congressmen Rooney and Lipinski to come forward with proposals to put a price on carbon. We should be taxing pollution, not taxing employment. This is one of the smartest and most effective steps we can take to reduce carbon emissions. As Americans experience record heatwaves and extreme weather events across the country, they want Congress to act. We need this kind of bipartisan leadership from both parties to bring forward solutions to this urgent crisis.

“These bills would reduce emissions significantly over the coming years by incorporating the costs of climate in everyday business transactions, with the revenue used to reduce payroll taxes paid by employers and employees alike. This type of price on carbon is a cornerstone of a policy portfolio needed to address climate change. We are encouraged that several of the co-sponsors have previously sponsored carbon-pricing bills that use revenue for different purposes, and they are recognizing the need to work together toward an ambitious package.

“With each passing day, the need for action becomes more urgent. This bill, coming on the heels of the announcement earlier this week by the leadership of the House Energy and Commerce Committee that the committee will be taking up climate legislation this year, can hopefully lay the groundwork for bolder action to come.”

July on course to be hottest month ever, say climate scientists
This follows the warmest-ever June, which was confirmed this week by data from the US space agency Nasa, following Europe’s Copernicus satellite monitoring system.

The ‘Historical Jigsaw of Climate Deception’: Private Notes Show How Big Oil Spread Climate Science Denial
We’ve all heard the dodgy arguments: ‘the science is uncertain’, ‘climate change is natural, not down to humans’, ‘science has been hijacked by politics’… Now a new cache of documents sheds light on the origins of the disinformation.

In another verse of a now familiar refrain, a fossil fuel industry group in the 1990s publicly promoted arguments to undermine confidence in climate science while internally acknowledging their products were driving up temperatures. (...)

‘Climate apartheid’: UN expert says human rights may not survive
The world is increasingly at risk of “climate apartheid”, where the rich pay to escape heat and hunger caused by the escalating climate crisis while the rest of the world suffers, a report from a UN human rights expert has said.

Philip Alston, UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, said the impacts of global heating are likely to undermine not only basic rights to life, water, food, and housing for hundreds of millions of people, but also democracy and the rule of law. (...)

To Fight Climate Change, We Need More Powerful Supercomputers
Accurate predictions of Earth’s warming require computers that are too expensive for one country or institution.


By Sabine Hossenfelder
Dr. Hossenfelder is a research fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies.   NYT

Key paragraph:

In this situation, the best we can do is improving computer models to obtain more accurate, approximate solutions. It is knowledge we urgently need: As Earth continues to warm, we face a future of drought, rising seas and extreme weather events. But for all we currently know, this situation could be anywhere between a mere annoyance and an existential threat.

Congressman Thomas Massie (Moron-KY) and John Kerry

 
This video is on the Congressman's youtube channel. One comment says that he went to MIT. I smell a scandal there.

 
 
I think Massie was just playing to the mouth-breather segment of his constituents. I've known a bunch of MIT grads and they are pretty goddamned smart, albeit with gaps and blind spots in their knowledge just like everyone else.
