That's actually terrifying.
This may not mean anything, but we are on a trip to the very north of Norway and the weather has it been what people are describing as unseasonably mild. It's still very cold by my standards but the Seas are very calm.
Very recently it has been observed that the Polar Vortex had been split In half by a ridge of high pressure. Causing temperature anomalies that we have seen down into the North American continent. Record temperatures, high and low, and now flooding as...
Unless we get leaders to acknowledge the gravity of the situation, we are heading toward environmental catastrophe. The permafrost will release methane and the warming will accelerate.
At least the crazy temps aren’t (in the lead image) over the northern steppes.
Graph of what we’re seeing.
Well this map is inaccurate, it certaintly is not below zero in washington
Shauna, I’m not talking about Washington state, I’m talking about north of the Arctic Circle. Where all the many thousands of year old ice is. Where all of the many thousands of year old ice is melting. Where all of the many thousands of year old melted ice water is going to rise up and cover the low laying portions of Puget Sound and the rest of the world.
Well, if its inaccurate its inaccurate
ARCTIC. Above the Arctic circle.
The map shows deviation from average temperature, not absolute temperature.
Well the deviation is extreme and not accurate
The chart I posted is absolute °C. Not relative.
The link has both
The chart says absolute C. The article says:
“Some of the most extreme warmth of the year so far is forecast to flood the Arctic in coming days, with a number of areas seeing temperatures that exceed 45 degrees (25 Celsius) above normal (dark pink shades below) and up to 60 degrees (34 Celsius) above normal. The mercury at the North Pole could well rise above freezing between Thursday and Sunday.”
And the article is innacurate
I am surprised by the confusion. The chart is clearly labeled with the word "Anomaly". It then goes on to say "The temperature difference from normal over the Arctic averaged over the next five days in the GFS model forecast. (University of Maine Climate Reanalyzer)" Why/how are people introducing "absolute?" A "find" of the word "absolute" returns zero results.
On the black chart.
Shauna, please tell me how the article is inaccurate. I looked for something that might be interpreted as that, but couldn't find anything.
