Arctic is warmest it's been in 10,000 years
RE: Arctic is warmest it's been in 10,000 years

Did somebody mentioned the Jacobshavn glacier without understanding the North Atlantic Oscillation? <sigh> The NAO's 5-to-20 year cycle doesn't explain this particular 10,000 year peak.

Also, regional variation. Citing Jacobshavn as a counterexample is like saying Hurricane Katrina didn't exist because Pensacola was never hit by it. People in New Orleans could point out the logical fallacy there.


EDIT: Ref this article at Forbes about Jacobshavn. Note that, while there are occasional dips, the tendency is to rise.
