Today Geologist and Engineer Tony Heller Delivered a Briefing on Climate Science Data to the Washington State Senate Energy, Environment & Telecommunications Committee. http://www.tvw.org/watch/?eventID=2017021106 Link to Slideshow: https://app.leg.wa.gov/CMD/document.aspx?agency=7&year=2017&cid=17641&mid=26868&hid=200159# After the 40 minute presentation WA State Senator Kevin Ranker questioned Tony Heller: Kevin Ranker: "I have a question, so I feel like the only ones still debating climate science are this Legislature and Congress. I feel like some of this presentation today may be alternative facts, (drops stack of papers), that is several dozen peer reviewed papers by hundreds of scientists that are all directly contrary to your entire testimony, how do you explain that?" Tony Heller: "Well exactly which parts of my testimony do you feel it's contrary to?" Kevin Ranker: "This says climate change is real, it is human caused, it's undebatable, and it is dozens of scientists, I mean hundreds of scientists in dozens of peer reviewed papers by people who have their degrees in climate science." Tony Heller: "First of all, the stuff which I presented this morning was work which has been done by very small groups of people within NASA and NOAA, and as I mentioned upfront that the work that your referring to depends on the accuracy of that data. If the underlying temperature data is incorrect, it severely affects their conclusions and it also affects the conclusions of policy makers. That's why it's important that we get down to this and that's why what Senator Ericksen mentioned upfront is very accurate. I'm a geologist; I'm well aware that the climate changes. In 1975 the National Academy of Science'S report said the climates of the Earth have always been changing, how much and how fast we do not know. 20,000 years ago Chicago was under a mile of ice. In the 1930's it was so hot in the midwest people had to move out. The climate does change, it changes all the time. There is no question that carbon dioxide impacts the radiative balance of the atmosphere. I have worked personally on software development for the National Center for Atmospheric Research'shows radiative transfer model. I am very versed in this. I understand that more carbon dioxide increases temperature somewhat. What is being debated is how much, is ithere serious, is it a problem. I think it is a straw man argument to say you either believe in climate science or you don't, that's not what's going on here. I would agree with your 97% consensus; what I disagree with is the amount, I disagree with the way the temperature data has a been handled."

Both border the Pacific Ocean and are in the infamous Ring of Fire, an area where lots of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions tend to occur. Both are geographically diverse. And yep, both have similar climates. West of the Cascades, the mountain range that runs north-south through both of the states, gets a lot of rain and the temperature is more moderate, whereas east of the Cascades is much drier with varied temperatures. That’s why you’ll get a picture like this, where you’re in the rainforest, and then drive east five hours and get a picture like this, where you’re basically in the freaking desert. Both are known for wine. Some of the best wine in the world is produced from the grapes grown in the Willamette Valley in Oregon and the Yakima Valley, Walla Walla Valley, and Tri-Cities region of Washington. Speaking of alcohol, both states have a ton of craft beer breweries, although Oregon has more per capita than Washington. Both states have a similar poverty rate and similar income levels, although Washington citizens definitely earn more, on average. The cost of living is similar in both states, overall, which is higher than most of the rest of the country. Both states’ biggest industries are healthcare, retail, and manufacturing, in that order, but you can’t mention the two states without their lumber production. They’ve got mad forests, there, I’m telling you. A lot of people in both Oregon and Washington have lighter skin. Only 4% in Washington and 2% in Oregon consider themselves African American. Around ⅕ of Oregon residents and Washington residents can trace their ancestry to Germany. Many of the earliest residents of European ancestry of both states came via the Oregon Trail, from the Midwest. Marijuana is legal in both states, although the laws that regulate it are less strict in Oregon. Both states lean to the left politically, and typically vote Democratic. Although the Cascades split both states politically, as east of them people tend to be more conservative. Both states are not that religious. Less residents belong to churches in Oregon and Washington than nearly all other states. Both border a foreign country. Washington borders Canada to the north and Oregon borders California to the south. Wait a sec...apparently California is also part of the United States. Scratch that, I’m sorry. So what about their differences? I mean, there are a lot of differences when you nitpick, like the fact that Washington produces much more apples than any other state and Oregon produces more hazelnuts than any other state, but in general terms, there are few major differences. Washington has a lot bigger population, despite being ⅔ the size of Oregon. Washington has around 7.3 million people, and Oregon just 4.1 million. So that’s why Washington gets 12 votes in the Electoral College and Oregon gets just 7. Washington’s population is also growing more quickly than Oregon’s. Washington residents are smarter than Oregon residents. Ok, I joke here, obviously. However, more than 41% of Washington residents have a college degree, whereas just under 38% of Oregon residents have one. Washington doesn’t have an income tax, Oregon has one of the highest income tax rates in the country. That’s quite misleading though, as Washington residents pay some of the highest sales tax rates in the country while Oregon residents pay some of the lowest.

Rain Shadows - dry areas on downwind sides of mountains - are prominent on the Big Island of Hawaii and east of the Cascade Range in the Pacific Northwest. Many rain shadows exist around the world - including north of Asia’s Himalayas, west of Austalia's Great Dividing Range, and east of California's Sierra Nevada Range. Three essential items are needed to develop the rain shadow effect - an ocean nearby, winds blowing steadily onshore, and a mountain range to block the traveling air mass. Evaporation on the surface of the ocean creates moist air. Prevailing winds push the wet air inland until it hits the base of the mountains. The air is forced to rise. As the air lifts, it expands and cools. Cooler air can’t hold as much moisture, so clouds form and it rains a bunch, resulting in a lush, green landscape. The now dry air mass crosses the mountains and begins to sink on the leeward side of the range. It compresses and warms, promoting evaporation. The result? Dry areas on downwind sides of mountains. A rain shadow! Tom Foster (http://HUGEfloods.com) and Nick Zentner (Central Washington University) have been hiking together in Washington for years. This ’Rain Shadow’ episode is part of a “2 Minute Geology” video series.

Called forams for short. climate proxy: something that tells us what the climate was like in the past, such as data from the thickness of tree rings, the composition of gases trapped in ancient ice, historical human records of annual bloom times (eg the long-recorded bloom dates of cherry trees in Kyoto, Japan), or the ratios of certain stable isotopes found in shells, corals, or other biogenic substances oxygen-18: a stable isotope of oxygen that contains 8 protons and 10 neutrons, rather than the 8 protons and 8 neutrons of "regular" oxygen (oxygen-16). The ratio of oxygen-18 to oxygen-16 in seawater (and sea shells) can be used as a proxy for the global average temperature ice sheet: a permanent layer of ice covering land, as found in polar regions (and as distinguished from sea ice, like the stuff that floats at the north pole in the Arctic ocean). Combined, the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets contain more than 99% of the total freshwater ice on Earth. ___________________________________________ If you liked this week’s video, we think you might also like: The Tiniest Fossils by the AMNH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLSa8cGJixQ Orbulina feeding on Artemia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYQNt52tiVU Mysterious Web Masters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0WbN34Mh7k ___________________________________________ Credits (and Twitter handles): Script Writer: Emily Elert (@eelert) Script Editor: Kate Yoshida (@KateYoshida) Video Illustrator: Ever Salazar (@eversalazar) Video Director: Emily Elert (@eelert) Video Narrator: Emily Elert (@eelert) With Contributions From: Henry Reich, Alex Reich, Peter Reich, David Goldenberg Music by: Nathaniel Schroeder: http://www.soundcloud.com/drschroeder Image credits: Cribrohantkenina inflata - Paul Pearson https://museum.wales/articles/2007-08-03/Up-close-with-nature/ Elphidium macellum, Bulimina and Calcarina hispida by foraminifera.eu http://www.foraminifera.eu/ Globigerina - Hannes Grobe http://www.nhm.ac.uk/our-science/our-work/biodiversity/planktonic-forminera.html _________________________________________ Like our videos?

Was the Early Earth Hot? Presenter: James Kasting (Department of Geosciences, Pennsylvania State University) May 13, 2008 02:30 PM Pacific Despite the faintness of the young Sun, the early Earth appears to have been warm, or perhaps even hot. Taken at face value, oxygen and silicon isotopes in ancient cherts imply a mean surface temperature of 70(±15)°C at 3.3 Ga1,2. Ancient carbonates also yield high Precambrian surface temperatures3, as does a recently published analysis of the thermal stability of proteins which are inferred to be ancient4. This evidence for hot early surface temperatures must be weighed against the previously mentioned dimness of the young Sun, as well as geomorphic evidence for glaciation at 2.9 Ga, 2.4 Ga, and 0.6-0.7 Ga. Climate models with high CO2 and CH4 concentrations can potentially explain hot climates, but can they explain climates that transition from hot to cold, and back again, multiple times? Such models must also account for the well documented correlation between the rise of O2 at 2.4 Ga and the Paleoproterozoic glaciations which occurred at that same time. Models that do5 and do not6 rely on changes in seawater oxygen isotopic composition will be discussed.

Why do you build to PHIUS Standards? Asked at the 2017 North American Passive House Conference in Seattle, WA. Nichole Schuster, Ashley McGraw (Syracuse, NY): “As opposed to building standard code buildings?” James Geppner, Big Yellow Cab (Cold Spring, NY): “The question really is, how do we respond to climate change in the buildings that we build?@ Schuster: “I design to PHIUS+ standards because it's an intensely rigorous energy efficiency standard.” Geppner: “And if we're gonna respond, then, we need something that's science-based and we need something that's performance-based. It doesn't just have one component or another, but it actually performs to a certain level. And that that performance is measurable.” Maren Longhurst, Rodell Design (Spokane, Washington) : “My passion is using the best technology and the best in building science to model energy use in buildings and to improve building efficiency.” Geppner: “It's one way to achieve basically, a building that requires very little energy and does so and produces a high indoor quality.” Schuster: “I think it provides greater levels of resiliency. I think it's tailored to our specific climates that we get the maximum benefit out of it, and it can also help us achieve other standards and goals like the Living Building Challenge, Energy Petal, for example.” Geppner: “Part of what makes it the best is that it uses what I think of, or what I call the dynamic energy model.” Longhurst: “PHIUS provides software Wi-Fi Passive and Wi-Fi Plus that really get deep into the details of a project.” Geppner: “The information that goes into designing a building is information from that region. It's weather data, it's climate data, so that when you have a house, it's not thoughtlessly constructed, it's constructed to the temperature of that region, the moisture of that region.” Longhurst: “And allow us to predict what a project will do and help us to design that project to be the most efficient, and the most comfortable, and the best quality building.” Geppner: “An option to get away from a construction method, which there's basically no technology, it's kind of a 400-year old process, to something that's more like the thinking and the modeling that goes behind constructing something like an iPhone, or a high technology product, and it works.” PHIUS+ is the path to passive energy music: Sabana Havana by Jimmy Fontanez/Media Right Productions

SUBSCRIBE https://www.youtube.com/ExtremeWeather Follow Extreme Weather on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ExtremeWeatherChannel A circle of ice was spotted spinning in the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River near North Bend, Washington, on January 7 2017. An ice disc, ice circle, or ice pan is a natural phenomenon that occurs in slow moving water in cold climates. Ice circles are thin and circular slabs of ice that rotate slowly in the water. It is believed that they form in eddy currents. It has been shown that existing ice discs can maintain their rotation due to melting. Ice discs have most frequently been observed in Scandinavia and North America, but they are occasionally recorded as far south as England and Wales. An ice disc was observed in Wales in December 2008 and another was reported in England in January 2009.An ice disc was observed on the Sheyenne River in North Dakota in December 2013. An ice circle of approximately 50 ft. in diameter was observed and photographed in Lake Katrine, New York on the Esopus Creek around January 23, 2014. In Idaho, extreme weather led to a rare sighting of an Ice disk on the Snake River on January 22, 2014. An unusual natural phenomenon, ice disks occur in slow moving water in cold climates and can vary in size, with circles more than 15 metres (49 ft) in diameter observed. Ice discs form on the outer bends in a river where the accelerating water creates a force called 'rotational shear', which breaks off a chunk of ice and twists it around. As the disc rotates, it grinds against surrounding ice — smoothing into a circle. A relatively uncommon phenomenon, one of the earliest recordings is of a slowly revolving disc spotted on the Mianus River and reported in an 1895 edition of Scientific American. Ice Pans River specialist and geography professor Joe Desloges states that ice pans are "surface slabs of ice that form in the center of a lake or creek, instead of along the water’s edge. As water cools, it releases heat that turns into 'frazil ice' that can cluster together into a pan-shaped formation. If an ice pan accumulates enough frazil ice and the current remains slow, the pan may transform into a 'hanging dam', a heavy block of ice with high ridges and a low centre.

Through her research in South America, Dee Boersma, professor of biology at the University of Washington, Seattle, has found that a changing climate has caused populations of penguins to move between protected Argentine land and unprotected private land. Her research is one of many examples of how climate change - warmer land and ocean temperatures new weather patterns, and changing ecosystems - are causing unexpected shifts in the location, life cycles, and populations of species.

The world's most famous sea. And to many, the world's favourite climate. Hot dry summers and wet winters - the Mediterranean Climate blesses the ancient lands of Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Israel, but is also duplicated in far off lands, including the Pacific North-West of the USA, California, Chile, South Africa and Western and South Australia. The sixth episode in a series exploring all the major climate zones of the world, here we show this part of the world in its full beauty, and uncover the secrets of why it is that way and show you the legendary lands and cities that lie within its influence. Covering every inhabited continent on Earth except Asia, this climate's home is of course the Mediterranean Sea itself, spanning Portugal and Morocco in the far west, and covering most of Spain, the Algerian and Tunisian coasts, the Balearic Islands, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and Malta, the Cote d'Azur of France, most of Italy (the Cinque Terre, the Amalfi coast, Tuscany and Campania), and then across the Adriatic Sea to the coasts of Croatia, Montenegro and Albania, and down into the mainland of Greece and the Greek islands. Continuing east, much of Turkey is blessed by this climate, and we finish at the far shore of this sea with Syria, Lebanon and Israel. Famous cities within this area include Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Casablanca, Nice, Monaco, Florence, Rome, Athens, Istanbul, Damascus, Beirut, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. In North America, the entire west coast of the United States has this climate, from the cooler variant in Washington State and Oregon, down into California all the way to the Mexico border. Principal cities here that receive dry summers and wet winters are Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Diego. Central Chile has this climate, including its capital Santiago and principal port Valparaiso, as does the extreme south-west of South Africa including the city of Cape Town. Lastly, the island continent of Australia has regions touched by this climate, these being the south west of Western Australia and the regional capital of Perth, and parts of South Australia including the state capital of Adelaide. The Mediterranean climate is the birthplace of legendary civilisations including Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Carthage, and the Hebrew nation of Israel, as well as the spiritual home of the Catholic Church in Rome, and the old centre of Byzantium and the Ottoman Empire in Istanbul (Constantinople). - - VIDEOGRAPHY AND PHOTOGRAPHY CREDITS EXTRA SPECIAL MENTION to Milosh Kitchovitch for granting permission to use excerpts from his extensive collection of videos of our planet.

TR takes us through history to help us understand our likely climate future. T.R investigates how humans change their world, sometimes subtly and sometimes dramatically. Tristram R. (T.R.) Kidder is an archaeologist, geologist, and environmental scientist in the department of anthropology, Washington University in St. Louis; his research explores how climate change has affected humans through time. Increasingly, though, his work investigates how humans have changed climates and environments and how, in turn, this shapes human history. Focusing on the last ten thousand years, T.R.'s work studies how, and when, humans began to be a force capable of changing nature. By looking at different societies and types of social groups, such as hunter-gatherers in coastal Louisiana, pastoral nomads in Uzbekistan, or dynastic civilizations in the Yellow River region of China, This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
