    Sweden’s central bank said on Wednesday it had sold off bonds from Western Australia and Queensland, and the oil-rich Canadian province of Alberta, because it felt that greenhouse gas emissions in both countries were too high.

    The Riksbank deputy governor, Martin Floden, said the bank would no longer invest in assets from issuers with a large climate footprint, even if the yields were high.

    Farmers here are trying to harvest corn out of frozen rain soaked fields through a layer of ice and snow that is clogging their equipment. Then they have to dry the corn with LP which is in short supply as all the regions are demanding it at the same time, all because the corn is too moist to sell or store. This after a spring that was too wet to plant, a summer that included a sudden mini drought and then a fall with way too much rain....again.

    Tell us again how climate change is good for us and the plants we eat? Maybe good for pine bark Beatles, temporarily, till they kill all of their trees.

    Combined with milk and cattle prices being in the shitter it's a rough time for farmers. The wife's family in WI is struggling, pretty sad.

    Have you already forgotten the video I showed you about how Iowa's climate has not been getting worse? You seem to think the weather is supposed to behave in a totally consistent and predictable pattern year after year.

    I saw you were back over here again visiting them. Vibes. That is a tough business to be in.

    Corn is about even with last year, soybeans in the shitter, land prices at historical highs, farm debt is up, bankruptcies here are double over last year. Inputs prices up. Add the unpredictable weather factor in and it is a lot of risk. For the few farmers trying to diversify away from the cash commodity crops they can't buy insurance and they have to develop their own markets so it is hard for them to scale and it remains a small but growing niche market - interestingly far more popular in Eastern Iowa than Western Iowa - cultural differences abound. For farmers trying to plant winter cover crops for soil and water quality and additional possible income (we are up from 2% of acres to a still pathetic maybe 4% in the last few years) they can't plant cover crops if they can't harvest in time because of late planting and wet weather in the fall...which is not the traditional norm here...falls were dryer, springs were wetter, and the weather came from the West, not the North or the South, back and forth ala jetstream amplification.

    I'm a city boy though! We do have a little land in our family but it is timber reserve so we shoot deer and harvest trees occasionally. My information is definitely second hand when it comes to climate changes effects on farmers and most of them would probably give a different perspective depending on who you talk to. And most farmers are still not on board with human caused climate change.

    Here is a report detailing some of the Koch Oligarchs anti climate lobbying in action. Pushing the narrative we all have to live with. You can look at the money they spread around and literally track it back to the nonsensical positions espoused here.

    This is cool. Model simulates earth with no CO2 in the atmosphere.

    It's interesting how rapid warming in the Arctic influences mid-latitude circulation because of a weakened jet stream. From jamal's link:

    "The northern polar jet stream (it has a counterpart in the Southern Hemisphere) is driven partly by the temperature contrast between masses of icy air over the North Pole and warmer air near the equator. Climate change, true to the predictions of the past half century, has led to faster warming in the Arctic than in the temperate zones. So the temperature difference between the two regions has been lessening.

    Research suggests that this reduction in the temperature difference is robbing the jet stream of some of its strength, making it wobblier and contributing to more temperature extremes."

    The bummer is climate change contributes to Mid-to-East Canada/U.S. cold snaps while the West becomes hotter and drier.

    each countries share of CO2 emiisions as a percentage:

    https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/i...?itok=KjG6ISQy

    https://www.zerohedge.com/energy/gre...al-fired-power

    China 29%

    USA 16%

    China - 987 coal plants with 121 under construction

    This site does pretty cool visualizations, I think they may have been posted already in here but there are pages and pages of stupid bullshit so

    https://climatereanalyzer.org

    Here's the temp anomoly map, so difference between current or forecasted temperature compared to average.



    Here's the one for all of last year

    Good to see someone else reads ZH (although I've taken a break from it lately, too much doom porn and political stuff, not enough economic stuff).

    OH NO !

    and we have been having record cold all over !

    get in your suv's quick ! take a plane flight ! help fund building a coal plant !

    anything we can to heat up the planet, we may only have 12 years before it's too late and the only place that will be warm enough is Mexico !
