Recent regional climate COOLING on the Antarctic Peninsula and associated impacts on the cryosphere

Via Billy



We examine climate variability since the 1950s in the Antarctic Peninsula region.
This region is often cited among those with the fastest warming rates on Earth.
A re-assessment of climate data shows a cooling trend initiated around 1998/1999.
This recent cooling has already impacted the cryosphere in the northern AP.

  1. It could have been an article posted here: Somewhere it was written how fully switching over to electric cars would require a massive expansion of US powerlines.

    We tend to assume electric cars are part of the move to solar, that power companies won't need to supply the power for those cars; but utilities do inevitably provide a significant portion of that power.

    The Green stuff is rarely what it seems :)

    I still like electric cars though - potential independence.
