#14 earthquakes recorded in Oklahoma since Friday.
#Argus et al in GRL: California's mountains subside up to 12 mm in the fall and winter due to the load of snow and rain, then rise an identical amount in the spring and summer when the snow melts, the rain runs off, and soil moisture evaporates. We invert the GPS observations of seasonal vertical motions to infer changes in equivalent water thickness.
#Did you know that Andrew Weaver, a climate scientist from the University of Victoria in British Columbia who co-authored this Nature article on the tar sands that I've referred to often, was elected last year to the province's parliament as a member of the Green Party?

#Judith Curry thinks that Arctic sea ice is going to reverse its decline around 2030: "As per the stadium wave, the natural variability part of the sea ice decline (arguably at least half of the total sea ice decline) will bottom out circa 2030, with the reversal of the decline beginning in the European sector."
That's hardly what models predict.
And I noticed something else: the audience’s eyes glazed over as the endless list of disasters were described. And the climate policy advocates provided extraordinarily specific predictions–such as the snow pack being reduced by 35% by a certain year. Such extreme precision regarding events later in the century caused such substantial rolling of some eyeballs that I worried that some might fall out their sockets.
Such litanies of future global warming-related disasters are being repeated time and time again on the national scene, leading much of society to increasingly tune out the increasingly strident warnings of global warming impacts provided by the "prophets" in non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the media, and others. In fact, according to a recent Gallup poll, climate change has dropped to 14th of the list of Americans' worries."
