The latest on Arctic sea ice

Last Gasp Arctic Sea Ice Death Rattle

Paul Beckwith

Elaborating on my last video; I take a cold, hard look at the reality of vanishing Arctic sea-ice. All signs point to an Arctic in collapse. Cold air is flooding out of the Arctic, pushing the jet stream far south, putting North America in a highly variable deep freeze that will be seen in a few years as a “last gasp” Arctic “death rattle”.

Unfortunately, our climate is highly nonlinear, and we have already crossed thresholds. The Arctic is the Achilles Heel or lynchpin of the entire system, and it is undergoing convulsions.
