Huge waves measured for the first time in the Arctic Ocean→

stormgasm:

You might be wondering why I’m posting this article, especially considering the fact that I normally post photos and the focus of this Tumblr is, well, the weather. However, the different -spheres of the planet are interconnected and have a major impact on how this planet, including its inhabitants, function. With climate change becoming a greater threat, we are seeing rapid changes and phenomena that we haven’t seen before. It’s really quite alarming. 

So, big waves, eh? What does this mean? Why is this important?  This just adds to the increasing evidence that supports the notion that global climate change is very real

Let me briefly get into the science behind it. The poles are very cold. The article focuses on the Arctic, so we’ll turn our attention to that region. What the researchers measured were surface waves, which includes a swell. In short, this is a series of waves that are generated by a distant weather system but are no longer under the influence of the wind from the aforementioned weather system. Okay, so they recorded a swell? Big deal. Yes, it is a big deal.

When you think of the Arctic Ocean, what comes to mind? Ice. Ice has this ability to suppress/dissipate wave energy, so when you have an extensive range of ice, it is difficult to maintain that energy in the form of a swell. The fact that scientists have been able to record a swell in this region signifies that enough ice has melted that the wave energy is no longer dissipated. The funny thing about this is that the increase in swell frequency can result in more ice breaking up. In turn, this can change the dynamics of the Arctic Ocean. 

Here is the link to the paper if you’re interested.

Elephant Raju Cries After Being Rescued From 50 Years Of Suffering In Chains 

This heartbreaking story is about as elephant Raju from India that had an incredibly rough life. After being poached from his mother he was thrown from one owner to another, until he was left living in terrible conditions with no shelter at night, being used as a beggars prop all day long. Raju survived only from passing tourists and sometimes had to eat plastic and paper while being chained 24 hours a day. A wildlife organisation SOS-UK could not stand the injustice and decided to save him in a daring midnight rescue operation.

The elephant, realizing he was being saved, started to cry: “It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realised he was being freed” – claims Pooja Binepal, one of the rescuers in an interview with Presspeople. “Tears began to roll down Raju’s face. Some no doubt were due to the pain but he also seemed to sense that change was coming. He felt hope for the first time” – says another rescuer Kartick.

THIS MAKES ME SO FUCKING HAPPY

Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan worked together on making The Golden Record, a message sent out to space for any extraterrestrials to find and learn about existence on Earth. Ann Druyan had the idea of putting human brain waves as one of the sounds used so whoever finds it could learn and understand human thought. While working together, they both fell in love with each other.  Carl proposed to her and shortly after she decided to record her brainwaves. So instead of sending out brainwaves thinking about history and science and all that was originally planned she recorded herself thinking about love, true love and that’s what was sent out into the unknown universe. If you don’t think that’s beautiful you’re lying.
