Joe Romm was the top climate expert in Bill Clinton’s White House. This week he told us Alaska is burning up, and sea ice is at a record low with temperatures of -30C in the Arctic.
One year ago this week, Alaska was so cold even long time residents wanted to leave. As Romm said, “the canary in the coal mine.”
Alaska is celebrating the anniversary of last year’s record cold, with another blast of record cold.
Meanwhile, people in Siberia are experiencing the coldest weather ever seen outside of Antarctica.
For climate experts – jet stream ridges are climate, jet stream dips are weather, and ice melts at -30C. And all of this is due to an increase of 0.0001 mole fraction CO2 over the last 100 years.
