Accelerating Sea-Level Rise with Increase in Extreme Weather Frequency, Severity, and Duration

I continue to expand upon my argument that global sea level will rise 7 meters by 2070, as I originally discussed over 5 years ago in a video. An Arctic Blue-Ocean Event (BOE) that is very likely by 2022 will cause very large Arctic warming. With no sea-ice left to melt, we lose our Arctic “refrigerator” and all that previous “latent heat” will now be “sensible heat” jacking up temperatures. This will further expose Greenland to accelerated, catastrophic ice loss with rapid sea-level rise and abrupt increases in frequency, severity, duration of extreme weather events globally.

Liu Xiaoming reaffirmed the central government’s confidence in Hong Kong’s authorities after more than two months of, at times, violent protests.

The US withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty has set the stage for a renewed arms race.

Pat Buchanan is a white supremacist who has complained that the United States is “committing suicide” because “Asian, African, and Latin American children” are replacing whites; said that undocumented immigrants are conducting a “third world invasion” of the country; defended Adolf Hitler as “an individual of great courage” who didn’t want to go to war; and argued that homosexuality should be “contained, segregated, controlled, and stigmatized.” Maryland Public Television (MPT) will feature him in a public affairs program starting next month.

Gibraltarian lawyer Charles Gomez said a judge has agreed to release Grace 1, the Iranian oil tanker seized near the British overseas territory. “From the minute that the judge made his order, the ship is no longer any compulsion to stay within the jurisdiction,” he said outside the Supreme Court of Gibraltar of the supertanker at the center of a standoff with Tehran.

Gibraltar Releases Iran Tanker, Grace 1, Despite U.S. Appeal

A local barrister who was in court during the hearing says authorities have released an Iranian supertanker at the center of a standoff with Tehran, that the U.S. had sought to seize through legal action.
The British overseas territory of Gibraltar turned back U.S. objections on Thursday and released the Iranian supertanker Grace 1 from detention, after receiving assurances from Tehran that it would not send its crude oil cargo to Syria.
“There are no longer reasonable grounds to suspect that the detention of the vessel is required,” chief minister Fabian Picardo said in a statement.
Hours earlier, the U.S. signaled it wanted to block the release of the ship, which had been seized by Britain July 4. That delayed the ruling, but Chief Justice Anthony Dudley said he had not received a written request from the U.S.
The U.S. could, however, could still seek to detain the ship as long as it remains in Gibraltar’s waters. It was unclear how soon the ship might sail away.
