Charles Hughes, Someone needs to learn to spell. It's "available", not "avalable". Fake spelling for a fake employment form? Cheers.

Hi Chuck how's ya doin' - always wonderful to see all your top shelf contributions to discussions on RC and posting all that excellent reference materials that others gain so much from every month. (smiling) Here's something in return for all your efforts that might help you. If you ever decide to act on that try these folks

Comment on New report: Climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe 2016 by Mal Adapted

The latest report Climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe 2016 from the European Environment Agency (EEA) ... ‘Climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe 2016’ may be relevant to other continents than Europe, even if it has a regional focus.
No kidding. Thanks for the post, Rasmus. It's good to see Europe, at least, is publishing official documents like that one. What it might look like coming from the current US administration, is the stuff of nightmares. The Executive Summary is rather good IMO. Conclusions from climate science are stated concisely, but with complexities acknowledged. With a little searching-and-replacing, much of it applies equally well to the US. My favorite bullet (emphasis original):
The magnitude of future climate change and its impacts from the middle of the century onwards depend on the effectiveness of global climate mitigation efforts.
It's a one-sentence climate model and policy guide.

anybody notice that a few republicans have proposed a carbon tax? The Rs are the people in charge. Nice to see some of them acknowledge AGW and suggest something to address the problem. Mike

Interesting critique of current Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs): "Over the last two centuries, the impact of the Human System has grown dramatically, becoming strongly dominant within the Earth System in many different ways. Consumption, inequality, and population have increased extremely fast, especially since about 1950, threatening to overwhelm the many critical functions and ecosystems of the Earth System. Changes in the Earth System, in turn, have important feedback effects on the Human System, with costly and potentially serious consequences. However, current models do not incorporate these critical feedbacks. We argue that in order to understand the dynamics of either system, Earth System Models must be coupled with Human System Models through bidirectional couplings representing the positive, negative, and delayed feedbacks that exist in the real systems." "... about 50 percent of the world’s people live on less than $3 per day, 75 percent on less than $8.50, and 90 percent on less than $23. One effect of this inequality is that the top 10 percent produce almost as much total carbon emissions as the bottom 90 percent combined. ... even if per capita emissions stabilize or decline in the developed countries, population growth in ... wealthy countries will remain a major driver of future increases in resource use and emissions."

11 Mr. Knows Jack Shit says: Hail Storms aren’t frequent, and they’re probably isolated, but they do happen. As opposed to the lies which are happening 24/7/365 as the world keeps spinning on it's axis flooded by the distortions, the gross disinformation and the delusional illogical commentaries by fools and idiots regarding AGW/CC science with their wild eyed conspiracy theories that climate science is a massive deceptive fraud upon the whole world to bring about a one world totalitarian government by mad leftie environmentalists and hippie anarchists high on mushies. Their cunning evil and mind control powers over pliable gullible people like say Gavin and 30,000 others in climate science is like wow, gosh, gee whiz weally incwedible. Yeah 'Hail' happens. It's wike weally important to know that.
