Have a look at this new video from Peter Sinclair: Peter has an interview with Jeff Goodell, contributing editor of Rolling Stone, which you will want to see. They talk about the political aspect of sea level rise in Florida. More about sea level rise here.

This is not a peer reviewed meta-study, but a meta-study nonetheless. Reuters has engaged in a major journalistic effort to examine sea level rise and has released the first part (two parts, actually). It is pretty good; I only found one paragraph to object to, and I’ll ignore that right now. There are two reasons…

There is an old theory in psychology that characterizes humans as a bowl of Jell-O (Jelly for some of you). Life pokes at the Jell-O, the Jell-O jiggles.

Peter’s latest video is “Abrupt Climate Change, and the Expected Unexpected” Senior Scientists discuss the potential for sudden disruptions of human and natural systems as a consequence of climate change.

I’ve noted this before. Here is Peter Sinclair’s video on the topic: The most sobering evidence of the planet’s response to greenhouse gases comes from the fossil record. New evidence scientists are collecting suggests that ice sheets may be more vulnerable than previously believed, which has huge implications for sea level rise.

Update on Haiyan/Yolanda Death Toll The final figures are not likely in but the numbers have stabilized and we can now probably put a number to the human toll of this storm that will not change dramatically in the future, at least in terms of orders of magnitude.
