The remnants of Paulette, located about 100 miles south of the Azores, are producing a few disorganized showers. Upper-level winds are expected to increase later today and no further development is anticipated.

I'm wondering if because most sea ice grows around the edge of existing sea ice that that Beaufort Sea hook is providing a large edge to grow on that the growth rate is larger then would be otherwise?

extent increased by 48,000 km² on September 26th (5 day avg +59,000 km² vs the 5 day avg of the last 10 years, +49,000 km²) The change so far in September is the 18th most negative on record (i.e., 18th largest loss)

Google "density of rain cloud" and you will get: 0.5g of water per m³ 0.5g is 0.5 millilitres, 1m³ is 1,000 litres and as there are 1,000 mls in a litre there are 1,000,000 mls in a cubic metre So the conc. of water in clouds is 0.5ppm or 0.00005% This blocks lights quite well

I've been meaning to do a stats update for a while. The current follower distribution, looks like this.

So next time you see a cloud BLOCK THE FUCKING SUN it’s getting blocked by something 800 times less concentrated that atmospheric CO₂.

That animation shows a 100x100x100 cube with a volume of 1,000,000. Each particle is 1x1x1 so 100 particles is exactly 100ppm. Now picture trillions upon trillions upon trillions of them stacked up in the atmosphere. That's a really dense cloud. Good day sir.

Oh and this is what 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500ppm looks like:

So now imagine what the sky looks like to an infrared photon, it's one really really dense cloud. The whole sky. All of it.

Thanks to the metric system this is ½ millilitre per cubic metre. Also thanks to the metric system 1 cubic metre is 1,000 litres and there are 1,000 millilitres to a litre so 1 cubic metre has 1,000,000 millilitres. This means a cloud has a concentration of 0.5 ppm or 0.00005%

Google “density of rain cloud” and you will get the value ½ gram per cubic metre.

Ok, let me explain to you WTF I was on about: You claim that CO₂ can't be a pollutant as it is only 0.04% so presumably can't effect the climate. I then pretended to need help with some maths regarding the water droplet concentration of a typical cloud... 1/n
