South Pole Hits Record Cold November Temperatures


https://dailysceptic.org/2022/11/20/...-temperatures/



Quote:
Extreme cold records continue to tumble at the South Pole. Three recent days November 16th, 17th and 18th have recorded a daily record, with the 18th plunging to 45.2C, compared with 44.7C on the same day in 1987. The records follow the six-month winter of 2020-21, which was the coldest since records began in 1957. Inexplicably, all these facts and trends have escaped reporting in the mainstream media.

You see, that's just weather. Things that are ok are called weather.

If something bad happens, that's global warming.

Two-Bit da Vinci does some noodling about an intercontinenetal energy grid.

There should be a Bedford's Law that says the any headline that starts with INSANE in all caps is probably true.

Anyways, at 10:56 you see his proposed route, a Y that connects three solar farms at Central Australia, Algiers and the Mojave in California.

Compare, for instance, Buckminster Fuller's World Energy Grid from 1981.

https://www.researchgate.net/figure/...fig3_253630909

The video proposes Aluminum conductors and concludes the grid would cost more than the annual global GDP. No consideration for high temperature superconductors.

We should choose to do it not because it is easy, but because it is hard.

I'll watch it, eventually, but I'll note my protest against the INSANE HYPING employed in ABSOLUTELY EVERY youtube title. The greatest ideas are humbly proposed and then cannot be ignored. I think of JBP, the worst promoter in all of history. He's of my mind of saying "here's a thing, and if you might be interested in it, this is how you can find it", and that's it. The thing is, if what you're mentioning is the best, you don't need to hype it.

I've not seen any discussion on the feasibility / economics of warm superconducting.

Given a long enough timeline, the probability of anything approaches certainty, especially for things that are desirable.

'Difficult' and 'worthy' are near-synonyms. My dream is to find the problem that is so close to my skill set and capability that it's worthy of my attention, and then striving to be worthy of contending with it.

Colloquially 'room-temperature superconducting'
Quote:
Room-temperature superconductor
A room-temperature superconductor is a material that is capable of exhibiting superconductivity at operating temperatures above 0 C, that is, temperatures that can be reached and easily maintained in an everyday environment. Wikipedia
A siutable rabbit hole would be DDG/?q=graphene+superconductingi

Great news everyone! I've got Blender 3.3 up and running. I've already designed a new front porch roof. It's a 2V edge vertex icosahedral umbrella sized for these 4ft broom-handle blanks I've been hoarding since the 1990s. It will take 36.

We shall see how it goes.

As you well know, design is significantly different from construction.

Good luck and godspeed

Didn't Europe just try that but with natural gas pipelines?

I don't think it's a good comparison. Natural gas doesn't have the 'use-it-or-lose-it' nature of electricity.

It's an INSANE attempt to obviate the battery problem.

'Antarctic winter record cold'

While new 'local' records are fun, they're not 'global', and Vostok Station, if this is where the new record was set, has been the 'coldest' place on Earth since 1983 ( 129-F below ).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The issue with the climate is, summer temps at the Western peninsula.
The poles are warming faster than anywhere else on the planet.
Between 1900, and 2006, Earth's warmed, from 56.58-F, to 57.99-F.
The Arctic has seen as high as 36-degrees above 'normal.' It IS that fastest-warming area.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Antarctica, while seeing up to 43-F above 'normal, statistically ( temporally ) remains in second place.
* In the summer, the 0-degree C line continues to move south, bring above-melting temperatures.
* Tropical sea-surface temperatures have increased by 5-C, to 9-C.
* Currents bring tropical heat beyond the Circumpolar Current south.
* Circumpolar Deep Water Gyre is delivering warm water to the bottom of the ocean, at the ice-cap grounding lines, melting the glaciers from below, creating suture zones; fractures which are a setup for glacier collapse.
* Ice, which might accumulate in the winter can't, due to foehn winds, which blows the snow off the continent, before it has a chance to compact.
* In 2012, Antarctica lost the equivalent of 41.8-trillion 10-pound bags of ice, equaling 26,410,564,230,000-gallons of freshwater diluting the seawater salt content. ( I'm not saying it will shut down the Atlantic Thermohaline Conveyor [ The Day After Tomorrow ], but of you wanted to do that, this would be how you'd pull that off ).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
By 2006, Earth surpassed the temperature of the Eemian Period, 120,000-years ago, when the last ice age ended, and sea level was 20-feet, to 30-feet higher, depending on currents. This sea level rise is already 'baked-in', even if we were to stop producing all anthropogenic greenhouse gases.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Winter temperature down there doesn't affect 'climate change.'
You can think of Antarctica as an ice cube, the size of the United States and Mexico, combined, two-miles thick.
