Effects of persistent Arctic warming continue to mount


Continued warming of the Arctic atmosphere and ocean are driving broad change in the environmental system in predicted and, also, unexpected ways. New emerging threats are taking form and highlighting the level of uncertainty in the breadth of environmental change that is to come.

Highlights
Surface air temperatures in the Arctic continued to warm at twice the rate relative to the rest of the globe. Arctic air temperatures for the past five years (2014-18) have exceeded all previous records since 1900.
In the terrestrial system, atmospheric warming continued to drive broad, long-term trends in declining terrestrial snow cover, melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet and lake ice, increasing summertime Arctic river discharge, and the expansion and greening of Arctic tundra vegetation.
Despite increase of vegetation available for grazing, herd populations of caribou and wild reindeer across the Arctic tundra have declined by nearly 50% over the last two decades.
In 2018 Arctic sea ice remained younger, thinner, and covered less area than in the past. The 12 lowest extents in the satellite record have occurred in the last 12 years.
Pan-Arctic observations suggest a long-term decline in coastal landfast sea ice since measurements began in the 1970s, affecting this important platform for hunting, traveling, and coastal protection for local communities.
Spatial patterns of late summer sea surface temperatures are linked to regional variability in sea-ice retreat, regional air temperature, and advection of waters from the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
In the Bering Sea region, ocean primary productivity levels in 2018 were sometimes 500% higher than normal levels and linked to a record low sea ice extent in the region for virtually the entire 2017/18 ice season.
Warming Arctic Ocean conditions are also coinciding with an expansion of harmful toxic algal blooms in the Arctic Ocean and threatening food sources.
Microplastic contamination is on the rise in the Arctic, posing a threat to seabirds and marine life that can ingest debris.

1. We have a good friend in Virginia

Who just shoveled 22 inches of artic warming off of his roof.

4. No one is saying the world is not changing

 

It has for billions of years.

Nothing in the article nor the guesswork called AGW scientifically links it to human activity.

Post hoc ergo propter hoc is NOT a Scientific concept.

7. Guess what? The climate has changed for millions and millions of years

and its current changing isn't anything different. In fact we still are currently cooler than average.

You leftists are falling for multinational corporate elitist/globalist propaganda to further consolidate wealth and power onto themselves. I thought you leftists were anti big money and political elite 'ism. So why are you so easily falling for their BS and doing their bidding?

8. Regurgitating energy company disinformation

doesn't refute the data. Pull your head out of your ass and do a little reading. You might learn something. Then again, you might not.

10. It is you who's regurgitating disinformation

Me, I am just going with what the historical science data has recorded. Maybe if you pulled your head out of your ass you might learn something other than being a sheep for the globalists.

Like I trust a puppy dog to watch my food.

11. They doctor the data and the sheep still follow

“Irrefutable evidence” provided by a “high-level whistleblower” shows that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) published a paper based on misleading and unverified data that exaggerated global warming. The agency then timed the release of the paper to influence the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.

Mail on Sunday writer David Rose reports that a “high-level” NOAA whistleblower, Dr. John Bates, who was awarded a special gold medal for his work setting standards for producing climate data, claims that the NOAA breached its own rules of scientific integrity by publishing a flawed report designed to influence world leaders at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference.

Veteran award-winning journalist Günter Ederer reports of a shocking new global warming data fraud in NASA’s global temperature data series, as relied on by the UN and government climate scientists.

The data has been carefully analysed by a respected data computation expert Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert and is being made publicly available for independent verification.

Professor Ewert’s findings seem to show NASA has intentionally and systematically rigged the official government record of global temperatures to show recent global warming where none would exist without the upwards ‘revisions.’

The astonishing results are now available online to the public. P Gosselin of notrickzone.com reports:

Ederer reports not long ago retired geologist and data computation expert Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert began looking at the data behind the global warming claims, and especially the datasets of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS).

Ewert painstakingly examined and tabulated the reams of archived data from 1153 stations that go back to 1881 – which NASA has publicly available – data that the UN IPCC uses to base its conclusion that man is heating the Earth’s atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. According to Ederer, what Professor Ewert found is “unbelievable”:

Doctoring real-world temperature data is as much a part of the alarmist playbook as is calling skeptical scientists at Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, MIT, NASA, NOAA, etc., “anti-science.” Faced with the embarrassing fact that real-world temperature readings don’t show any U.S. warming during the past 80 years, the alarmists who oversee the collection and reporting of the data simply erase the actual readings and substitute their own desired readings in their place. If this shocks you, you are not alone.

The bureaucracy at NOAA and NASA who report the U.S. temperature data undertake what they term “correcting” the raw data. These corrections are not just one-time affairs, either. As time goes by, older temperature readings are systematically and repeatedly made cooler, and then cooler still, and then cooler still, while more recent temperature readings are made warmer, and then warmer still, and then warmer still.

13. Why do you keep leaving out the volcanoes under the Arctic?

I KNOW you know about them.

See SatansSon? I told you.
