Researchers Flock to the Arctic as CO2 Surpasses 400PPM

New Arctic Ocean data adds to evidence linking rising CO2 levels to climate warming, which is occurring faster than it has since long before the Age of the Dinosaurs. A team of 40 researchers is gathering Arctic Ocean data before the region as we know it ceases to exist as the global average concentration of atmospheric CO2 surpassed 400 ppm.

Arctic Sea Ice Loss Raises Prospect of a Colder Europe

Arctic warming and sea ice loss is reducing ocean-atmosphere heat exchange and the flow of ocean waters that fuel the Gulf Stream and Atlantic Meridional Overtuning Circulation, according to groundbreaking new oceanographic climate research. That raises the prospect of a much colder Europe,

The NOAA releases its latest Arctic Report Card

Baked Alaska: Climate Change in the Arctic

Arctic report card – If there’s been any “pause” in global warming, the Arctic  hasn’t seen it. The latest Arctic Report Card issued from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows a continued acceleration of climate change in the region. This latest report shows that Arctic air temperatures continue to rise at more than twice the rate of global temperatures,…

Military Leaders Meet, Stage Exercises as Arctic Warming May Portend New “Cold War”

Warning twice as fast as the rest of the world’s regions, ongoing melting of Arctic sea ice portends the possibility of a new Cold War, along with a “bonanza” mentality among the world’s oil, gas and mineral resource exploration companies.

The Oceanic Conveyor Belt: Climate Change Tipping Points Being Reached in the Arctic, Western Boundary Ocean Currents

Two new research papers by authoritative climate research teams were announced this week — one on climate change tipping points being reached in the Arctic and a second on warming of long-distance, poleward-moving ocean currents. The results of the studies show that warming of both the Arctic and western boundary currents is happening faster than has been anticipated, prompting the…
