Arctic climate shifting with rising temperatures

As climate change continues to affect the planet, researchers say the Arctic is actually shifting to a different climate.Open water and rain are more the norm than ice and snow.

Eric Sorensen explains the findings and what they mean for the future.

    The Climate is not static but constantly evolving, a living thing, to attribute all changes to human activity, you need to prove :

    1) the change is abnormal and
    2) the abnormality is due to human activity.

    Besides, melting ice cap may be good for Canada gaining a new lucrative shipping route, provided the US doesn’t front jump the ownership line.

    Four researchers of Northern Arizona University's School of Earth and Sustainability (SES) led the study, with Regents' professor Darrell Kaufman as lead author and associate professor Nicholas McKay as co-author, along with assistant research professors Cody Routson and Michael Erb. The team worked in collaboration with scientists from research institutions all over the world to reconstruct the global average temperature over the Holocene Epoch — the period following the Ice Age and beginning about 12,000 years ago.
    "Before global warming, there was global cooling," said Kaufman. "Previous work has shown convincingly that the world naturally and slowly cooled for at least 1,000 years prior to the middle of the 19th century, when the global average temperature reversed course along with the build-up of greenhouse gases. This study, based on a major new compilation of previously published paleoclimate data, combined with new statistical analyses, shows more confidently than ever that the millennial-scale global cooling began approximately 6,500 years ago."
    Earlier this year, an international group of 93 paleoclimate scientists from 23 countries — also led by Kaufman, McKay, Routson and Erb — published the most comprehensive set of paleoclimate data ever compiled for the past 12,000 years, compressing 1,319 data records based on samples taken from 679 sites globally. At each site, researchers analyzed ecological, geochemical and biophysical evidence from both marine and terrestrial archives, such as lake deposits, marine sediments, peat and glacier ice, to infer past temperature changes. Countless scientists working around the world over many decades conducted the basic research contributing to the global database.
    "The rate of cooling that followed the peak warmth was subtle, only around 0.1°C per 1,000 years. This cooling seems to be driven by slow cycles in the Earth's orbit, which reduced the amount of summer sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere, culminating in the 'Little Ice Age' of recent centuries," said Erb, who analyzed the temperature reconstructions.
    Since the mid-19th century, global warming has climbed to about 1°C, suggesting that the global average temperature of the last decade (2010-2019) was warmer than anytime during the present post-glacial period.
    McKay, who developed some of the statistical approaches to synthesizing data from around the world, notes that individual decades are not resolved in the 12,000-year-long temperature reconstruction, making it difficult to compare it with any recent decade. "On the other hand, this past decade was likely cooler than what the average temperatures will be for the rest of this century and beyond, which are very likely to continue to exceed 1°C above pre-industrial temperatures," McKay said.
    "It's possible," Kaufman said, "that the last time the sustained average global temperature was 1°C above the 19th century was prior to the last Ice Age, back around 125,000 years ago when sea level was around 20 feet higher than today."
    "Investigating the patterns of natural temperature changes over space and time helps us understand and quantify the processes that cause climate to change, which is important as we prepare for the full range of future climate changes due to both human and natural causes," said Routson. He used an earlier version of the database to link Arctic warming to a reduction in precipitation at mid latitudes (see related article).
    "Our future climate will largely depend on the influence of human factors, especially the build-up of greenhouse gases. However, future climate will also be influenced by natural factors, and it will be complicated by the natural variability within the climate system. Future projections of climate change will be improved by better accounting for both anthropogenic and natural factors," he said.
    The reconstruction of past global temperature is the outgrowth of several NAU research projects aimed at understanding the causes and effects of natural climate variability, work that was funded through more than $1.2 million in grants from the National Science Foundation. The team was recently awarded another $678,000 in grants from the NSF for related work extending through 2023.

    Everything as Children we swore to protect is coming to an end and soon we will live in a world with out Snow and Ice, and the Polar bears unless it can reinvent a new way of living and hunting. I am sad I can't do more to save this environment from Human greed and lack of knowledge and understanding. I hope that i am lucky enough to see this part of the world before it is forever changed.

    more lies. climate is always changing. it will always change. mother earth does what it wants, i remember my history, earth didnt look like this 100,000 yrs ago. n it wasnt cause by man. if you beleave man is the cause, then i got ice cubes i will sell the government so they can put it up in the arctic to replace what melted

    It’s so easy to stop global warming. Just stop buying new outfits, shoes, electronics and vehicle. Stop competing each other instead love each other. This is the solution.

    The problem is, the Arctic is not where it used to be, it's in Siberia. The earth has shifted. Don't panic.

    Climate change is the catalyst for massive wealth transfer while covid is the catalyst for a massive power grab.
    Both are communist creations.

    Climate change-the LORD God Almighty is His name, and global warming is God's final warning, because of too much rebellion, sin, and wicked hearts within!

    Praying for God's mercy on all! Jeremiah 10:12–13, "He hath made the earth by His power, He hath established the world by His wisdom, And hath stretched out the heavens by His discretion. When He uttereth His voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, And He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; He maketh lightnings with rain, And bringeth forth the wind out of His treasures." Nahum 1:3, "The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, And will not at all acquit the wicked: The LORD hath His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, And the clouds are the dust of His feet." Psalm 148:8, " Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling His word:" Matthew 24:7, "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, " And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power; Malachi 4:1,2, " For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall." Isaiah 13:9-13, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in His going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger." Revelation 14:7, "Fear God and give glory to Him for the hour of His judgment has come!"

    Repeat after me…..
    El Niño is a climate cycle in the Pacific Ocean with a global impact on weather patterns. The cycle begins when warm water in the western tropical Pacific Ocean shifts eastward along the equator toward the coast of South America.
