Antarctica would be safe aside from China blowing off all that R11. As CFC induced warming is being blamed for a large portion of Antarctic warming.

The Beaufort gyre will disrupt ocean currents a lot faster and a lot sooner than anything the antarctic might be a be to do.

We will gain a lot of land but who wants to live that far north?
It snowed, was 4 degrees 2 nights ago and the of and day after highs were in the low 20s. I done with cold and snow.

I wouldn't count on that for a long time. About 3/4 of antartica's average temperature is -40c/f and below.
Sad tho because I wanted some coastal property in Arkansas before I die.

Why is YouTube Broadcasting Climate Misinformation to Millions?
YouTube is driving its users to climate misinformation and the world’s most trusted brands are paying for it.


Does anyone want to look into this? I can't be bothered. All I see is advertising being weaponized to stifle discussion. S0 is now banned from Twitter, and Congress is demanding they be driven off Youtube, but so far Alphabet and Google are resisting the pressure.

Meanwhile science is coming around to the 0bservers point of view. Satellites watching for earthquakes, & etc.

JPL: Arctic Ice Melt Is Changing Ocean Currents
Quote:
The Beaufort Gyre keeps the polar environment in equilibrium by storing fresh water near the surface of the ocean. Wind blows the gyre in a clockwise direction around the western Arctic Ocean, north of Canada and Alaska, where it naturally collects fresh water from glacial melt, river runoff and precipitation....

But the since the 1990s, the gyre has accumulated a large amount of fresh water - 1,920 cubic miles (8,000 cubic kilometers) - or almost twice the volume of Lake Michigan. The new study, published in Nature Communications, found that the cause of this gain in freshwater concentration is the loss of sea ice in summer and autumn....

Persistent westerly winds have also dragged the current in one direction for over 20 years, increasing the speed and size of the clockwise current and preventing the fresh water from leaving the Arctic Ocean. This decades-long western wind is unusual for the region, where previously, the winds changed direction every five to seven years.

Scientists have been keeping an eye on the Beaufort Gyre in case the wind changes direction again. If the direction were to change, the wind would reverse the current, pulling it counterclockwise and releasing the water it has accumulated all at once.

If the government wants it banned or censored you know they're on the right track. They are trying to regulate this more than hate speech or how to 3d print a gun.

We shouldn't listen to people with doctorates or phd but we should listen to a mental defective who likely drinks too much alcohol?

news.slashdot.org: Company To Harvest Green Hydrogen From Underground Oil Fires
Quote:
This month, on the frozen plains of Saskatchewan in Canada, workers began to inject steam and air into the Superb field, a layer of sand 700 meters down that holds 200 million barrels of thick, viscous oil. Their goal was not to pump out the oil, but to set it on fire -- spurring underground chemical reactions that churn out hydrogen gas, along with carbon dioxide (CO2). Eventually, the company conducting the $3 million field test plans to plug its wells with membranes that would allow only the clean-burning hydrogen to reach the surface.
What could possibly.... oh, right; Centralia PA.

Antarctic ice area went from a record high in 2014 - to a record low this past year. And that trend is accelerating.

I'd been silent on this because I didn't want to stray off topic, but you've opened the door. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intergalactic_dust

Stars attract our interest because they twinkle and beckon to us. The intergalactic medium is filled with filaments of dust that pour into the galaxies and drive new star formation.



An Ancient Solar System...: Dust, the ultimate cosmic mystery (maybe)...
Quote:
Why? Because space dust is old, strange, stuff: It was the first solid matter in the universe. It was the building material for all the planets, dwarf planets, moons and asteroids. Thinly spread dust fills space: Some is ‘just’ from asteroids and comets, and some actually grew in the outer layers of ancient stars, or was forged in a supernova. Even garden variety space dust contains rock, water, gases like oxygen, and precursor molecules to life - basically all the stuff that goes into making a world like Earth.

In fact planets are small fry for space dust. Paradoxically, space dust thinks big. It forms massive structures, trillions of kilometres aross, as it gets blown about by stellar winds and pulled by gravity, like nebula.....

These huge structures give birth to stars, planets, and solar systems – and they’re everywhere! Look up at the milky way. See those dark patches in it? Clouds of space dust waiting to form planets.
The real 'dark matter'.

Japan took a couple of atomic hits and all they got was Godzilla, But the Russians got Chernobyl and now they have fungi that eats radiation.
https://www.popularmechanics.com/sci...rnobyl-fungus/
Quote:
Scientists have known about this fungus, and similar extremophile organisms that can thrive on radiation, since at least 2007. The variety found in Chernobyl “can decompose radioactive material such as the hot graphite in the remains of the Chernobyl reactor,” Nature said in 2007. The fungus grows toward the hottest and most radioactive places, like phototropism but for deadly toxins.

How can this fungus process radiation in this way? Because it has tons of very dark melanin pigment that absorbs radiation and processes it in a harmless way to produce energy. Scientists believe this mechanism could be used to make biomimicking substances that both block radiation from penetrating and turn it into a renewable energy source.

These are probably some of the oldest types of organisms in the galaxy.
