  • 12.03.2018: Alsup asks for answers

    Some of you might have read about the lawsuit by a number of municipalities (including San Francisco and Oakland) against the major oil companies for damages (related primarily to sea level rise) caused by anthropogenic climate change. The legal details on standing, jurisdiction, etc. are all very interesting (follow @ColumbiaClimate for those details), but somewhat […]

  • 01.03.2018: Forced responses: Mar 2018

    This month’s open thread on responses to climate change (politics, adaptation, mitigation etc.). Please stay focused on the overall topic. Digressions into the nature and history of communism/feudal societies/anarchistic utopias are off topic and won’t be posted. Thanks. The open thread for climate science topics is here.

  • 26.02.2018: More ice-out and skating day data sets

    The responses to the last post on the Rideau Canal Skateway season changes were interesting, and led to a few pointers to additional data sets that show similar trends and some rather odd counter-points from the usual suspects. Minnesotan Lakes The most comprehensive (and up-to-date) set of “ice out” data for lakes is, unsurprisingly perhaps, […]

  • 23.02.2018: Rideau Canal Skateway

    I’ve been interested in indirect climate-related datasets for a while (for instance, the Nenana Ice Classic). One that I was reminded of yesterday is the 48-year series of openings and closings of the Rideau Canal Skateway in Ottawa. Since 1971, the National Capitol Commission (NCC) in Ottawa has (once the ice is thick enough for […]

    This month’s open thread for climate science topics. Note that discussions about mitigation and/or adaptation should be on the Forced Responses thread. Let’s try and avoid a Groundhog Day scenario in the comments!
