The Arctic has warmed nearly four times faster than the globe since 1979 | Communications Earth & Environment

In recent decades, the warming in the Arctic has been much faster than in the rest of the world, a phenomenon known as Arctic amplification. Numerous studies report that the Arctic is warming either twice, more than twice, or even three times as fast as the globe on average. Here we show, by using severalContinue reading “The Arctic has warmed nearly four times faster than the globe since 1979 | Communications Earth & Environment”

Climate Dynamics Are More Involved Than Commonly Thought

apple.news/AZnSwao9QR1CpXpGu-sedrA The expert views expressed in this article seem simplistic. Loss of sea ice – more wildfires. Increments of global warming caused by the burning of fossil fuels and by other factors such as industrial release of warm water are major principals of this climate. There is no evidence that this is a natural cycleContinue reading “Climate Dynamics Are More Involved Than Commonly Thought”

1922 Report Was Altered Later

apple.news/Atnm2nd_PT-iazyqcRz14nQ Although a report about Arctic climate change was filed by the U.S. government in 1922, a later addition seemed to predict rising sea levels and the flooding of cities. This addition has nothing to do with the original report. Also, great short video about endangered polar bears. We will continue to lose sea iceContinue reading “1922 Report Was Altered Later”

Glaciers Melting

apple.news/A8GtFNxAGSMuXfP9uZUpH9g “Scientists have been worried about Greenland’s glaciers melting for years now, especially because the Arctic is warming up faster than anywhere else on earth due to climate change. Last August, it rained for the first time in recorded history over the Greenland Summit Camp, a research station that’s near the frozen top of theContinue reading “Glaciers Melting”

Quick Look at Brave New Arctic: the Untold Truth of the Melting North, by Mark C. Serreze

Serreze is a scientist. He has spent decades studying the Arctic ice. This is a book written in general science terms, accessible to the casual reader with a good science background. The above figure impressed me – in the time from the beginning of GPS surveys (1959) to an ASTER image in 2015, these iceContinue reading “Quick Look at Brave New Arctic: the Untold Truth of the Melting North, by Mark C. Serreze”
