Also further to the East in the Arctic ice conditions are very unusual this year. The Kara Sea to the East of Novaya Zemlya was completely ice-free in February, as BarentsObserver reported.
A recent NASA-study shows that the oldest and thickest Arctic sea ice is disappearing at a faster rate than the younger and thinner ice at the edges of the Arctic Ocean’s floating ice cap. The shows that multi-year ice has diminished with each passing winter over the last three decades with a rate of -15.1 percent per decade.

Regardless of cause.....cars or methane, the last time that CO2 was this high(actually a little less back then)
was 20,000,000 million years according to the report.
The seas were up to 120 ft deeper......
This has repercussions and regardless of the arguments, what will they do when the coastal lowlands start to flood?
Which could be anytime now........according to the study.....if i read it right....
Assuming that CO2 is the driver of global climate.....
There are a dozen or two other factors to take into account...
Space weather,Vulcanism,Ocean caiity and many more probably....
Is CO2 the big buggaboo?
Or could it just be a peripheral cause? or even a result of other stronger factors?
