CBS News says the Arctic is record hot at 100 degrees and bazillions of scientists say we have to take action to save the climate.
The official record temperature for Alaska is 100F above the Arctic Circle.
During the summer of 1927, temperatures over 32C were persistent in the Arctic.
The North Pole recieves the most solar energy of any place on earth at midsummer.
The total energy received each day at the top of the atmosphere depends on latitude. The highest daily amounts of incoming energy (pale pink) occur at high latitudes in summer, when days are long, rather than at the equator.
Temperatures at the North Pole were below average almost every day this summer.
Ice extent at both poles is highest in seven years.
Arctic sea ice volume is up 20% from last year and just below the 2004-2013 average.
Sea ice volume has increased 20% over the last 13 years.
Hansen predicted peak warming and sea ice loss around Antarctica. The exact opposite has occurred.
In 2004, Gavin Schmidt reported decades of significant cooling over Antarctica.
In 2005, NASA published a map showing the cooling.
By 2007, NASA had completely erased the cooling.
By 2009, NASA had turned all the cooling into warming.
Antarctic sea ice extent has bene steadily increasing
The Greenland surface mass balance has been above average for three out of the last five years. Greenland’s surface has gained two trillion tons of ice over the past five years.
When Stonehenge was built, the Arctic Ocean was ice-free, there were trees growing all the way to the Arctic Ocean and July temperatures in the Arctic were 2.5-7C warmer.
Most US state record maximum temperatures were set more than 85 years ago.
There is no indication government can control CO2, much less climate.
