“About 94% of the global warming heating is going into the ocean and it is the Gulf Stream - Svalbard current that will be our killers because they are melting the Arctic ice from below and destabilizing the methane hydrates between the ocean surface and 200 meters depth along the Arctic ocean shelf edge. The core of the Svalbard current has increased in temperature from less than 1.5 to more than 4 degrees centigrade."
Waters west of Svalbard are nearly 12* C. (53.6 F)
