Ecological conditions for 3 temperature- and sea ice-sensitive species show the sub-Arctic North Atlantic has been cooling and gaining ice since 1940.

In recent months, several scientific publications have documented a dramatic cooling trend in the subpolar North Atlantic, with temperatures plummeting 2°C since 2008 (Bryden et al., 2020) or -0.78°C per decade since 2004 (Fröb et al., 2019). Maroon et al. (2020) even point out 2015 was the coldest of the last 100 years.

Now a new study (Weckstrom et al., 2020) not only documents the cooling in the subpolar North Atlantic has been ongoing for 80 years, but the sub-Arctic sea ice in this region has been steadily increasing in extent since about 1940 too.

The sea ice reconstruction was derived from an ecological study of 3 warmth-demanding “sea-ice species” abundant only in regions with a narrow temperature threshold.

    The authors will be ridiculed and ostracized, probably lose their positions, too.

    U idiots: GLOBAL WARMING CAUSES the anomalously cold subpolar SST!!!;-} How? Boiling hot air temps cause ice on and around Norway, Iceland, Greenland & northern Canada to melt. The melt water flows south into subpolar waters, thereby reducing subpolar water temps.

    WHEN will u idiots LEARN? Climate change explains EVERYTHING. The science is settled:-}

    This corroborates personal observations in a maritime climate to the east of the North Atlantic. It has gotten decidedly cooler in the last ~15 years. We haven’t had a decent spring in god knows how long, and it’s well into the summer before temps are consistently above 20 degrees Celsius.
