Our Ongoing Climate System Destabilization
The Arctic region average temperature is from 6 to 8 degrees Celsius (11 to 15 F) warmer than normal. Arctic sea ice extent maximum occurred a month early. Our climate system is breaking apart in front of our eyes. Ridiculously, the term "faster than normal" is still used to describe sea ice collapse, accelerating sea level rise and every other climate system parameter.

There is serious news about plankton, the tiny ocean plants that feed the seas, and provide most of the oxygen you are breathing right now. I'm Alex Smith. Welcome to Radio Ecoshock.
