Old record, +4.0°C in 2016. This is the 21th daily record in a row, almost a month of continuous daily record...
I remember that post: I think someone questioned those figures a few posts further down because I fell off my chair when I saw them....One massive record:
Laptev Sea is off the coast of Siberia.
agreeThat's what I was thinking,... First time bloody ever
Also, I couldn't figure out how to post the graph....
But, fuck yeh,... First time bloody ever: it's slightly freaking me out a little bit because freezing-degree-day wise it doesn't really mean much but phenomena wise it's means a massive Fucking deal because of the time of year.
This will be one of the thematic moments of this melting season to compare to others, no doubt.
No fucking doubt buddy !!!!!
