Got it

Look, it's melting...

Jennifer Francis makes a great job drawing a line from sea ice retreat to slower moving weather patterns on the northern hemisphere. Probably it is strongly against common sense to accept colder winter and more snow as an aspect of global warming, but eventually even a room full of meteorologists absorbs the message - if properly presented.


I especially like how she moves the focus to sea ice volume, thinner ice is more vulnerable to all kind of weather, it drifts faster with the wind out of the basin and melts quicker under 24 hours of sunlight per day. Enjoy the show - it is a rare event to listen to female climate scientists. Don't watch alone, share these two hours full of insights with your significant other.
