Greendale News: Unprecedented Temperatures in North Atlantic
Despite today's earlier Winterlong Alert, climate patterns continue to trend along the lines of Sun Green's earlier projections.
It seems as if whenever we point out the established scientific evidence of the obvious, we inevitably hear howls of protest.
So here's some of the latest data from the indispensable Climate Progress | Temperatures of North Atlantic “are unprecedented over the past 2000 years and are presumably linked to the Arctic amplification of global warming”:
This astonishing warming in the past century is clearly not, as the anti-science crowd likes to say, some sort of recovery from the so-called Little Ice Age (see “A detailed look at the Little Ice Age“), which, in any case, is barely noticeable in this data. The lead author, Robert Spielhagen of the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences said, “Such a warming of the Atlantic water in the Fram Strait is significantly different from all climate variations in the last 2,000 years.” The fact is, over 90% of human-caused warming is going into the oceans — and it is melting ice whereever it goes (see “Deep ocean heat is rapidly melting Antarctic ice“).
