All over the Weeb right now is the news that the North Pole is 36 degrees warmer right now than it should be. The upshot is that isobars elongate as they're heated, shorten as they're cooled. When heated, an interference-pattern appears, and is resolved through longer isobars forming. Longer latitudinal isobars can no longer fit into the latitudes they traditionally occupy, so that latitudinal and longitudinal isobar patterns break up into interference patterns, then resolve into massive, latitude-spanning patterns reaching from equator (or further) to polar cap.



This phenomenon has never been seen before, and is further evidence of bad things to come since the planet passed the 400-parts-per-million tipping point of atmospheric carbon levels.



If this is an example of the runaway greenhouse gas effect as predicted by some worst-case-scenario models, then this planet has 5-10 years of habitable life left.

The prediction now is that the polar ice will be gone in one or two years:

This is from Dec 30, 2015. I remember this event last year.


I have a habit of checking arctic sea-ice extent every September/March for the last couple years. Scary stuff :(

I posted that just to show what last year's high peak was. This year's is expected to be higher.

I asked a meteorologist I know (who I used to work on the boats with on the Left Coast) why no one is mentioning the 5-10-years-left prediction, and he basically said, "What's the point? There's nothing that can be done about it now. The situation is both irreversible and accelerating."

Here in Central Saskatchewan, even though it's after dark, it's hovering around 0C when it should be around -22C. A few days ago, the low at night was +8C in Northern Saskatchewan, around the 60th parallel. This has been happening for a few years, now, where the lows are in the South and the highs in the North.

It used to be a joke that in Canada you have to make sure your kid's Halloween costume was baggy enough to fit a snow-suit under. Yesterday, almost 3 weeks after Halloween, it was 14C (57F) outside here. That is T-shirt and sandal weather for many Canadians.

This year was the 1st time since 1997 (an al Nino year) that it didn't snow on or about Hallowe'en in Saskatchewan. The warm Pacific current is a natural recurring phenomenon, and guys I was working with were playing golf on Christmas day. But it also got cold, like it's supposed to, by February, and got down to -45C.

We were well into November this year, and it was T-shirt weather until just a few days ago. But in '97, it was cold up North. This year, the North is often 8 degrees warmer than down here in Central Saskatchewan. And people up North, indigenous people, have never seen that before, and nothing like it is recorded in their history.

The proof is in the melting permafrost. It's an archaeologist's wet-dream in the Tundra right now because stuff that has been sitting there, perfectly preserved, since the last Ice Age, is being exposed as the permafrost melts. Hills covered with caribou dung and bones, mixed with the bones of extinct animals, and 4000-year-old hunting artifacts, clothing, and other goodies, are just one of the attractions.

But towns like Inuvik and Tuktuyaktuk are falling into the Arctic Ocean as the permafrost melts and turns into a muddy morass, and buildings are being moved inland as the ground collapses. And they've been seeing thunderstorms and southern birds like robins for the first time ever.

And now the greedy vermin who caused this mess want to send ships through the open waters of the North, which will only accelerate and worsen the damage.

Meanwhile, forecasters are having to invent categories beyond Category 5 for tornadoes and hurricanes, and are warning that places like Florida's days are numbered.
