“The heat in high latitudes has been especially punishing for Arctic sea ice and the Greenland ice sheet” “The extent of Arctic sea ice at the peak of the summer melt season now typically covers 40 percent less area than it did in the late 1970s and early 1980s.”; “It is looking likely that 2016 will be the hottest year on record, surpassing the incredible temperatures witnessed in 2015,”; “New research into the complex interactions between the ocean and the global climate – as evidenced by the recent super El Niño – will be examined at an international scientific gathering in China. The conference will also focus on how the ocean is bearing the brunt of global warming, with huge consequences for the future of the planet.” This doesn’t seem like news anymore. A reversal of this warming trend would be news.
