Oldspeak: “When we started studying this, I never would have imagined we’d be talking about a 26-day per decade rate of advance,” says Eric Post, a polar ecologist at the University of California Davis department of wildlife, fish and conservation biology, who has been studying the Arctic for 27 years.
“That’s almost an entire growing season. That’s an eye-opening rate of change.”
“One day after a near 70 degree day here in New York, temperatures are forecast to plummet to 29 degrees tonight. Global weirding continues to accelerate apace, as ecological cycles spin out of whack worldwide. After a February where daily record highs have been blowing away daily record lows by a far greater than 100-to-1 ratio, quite the eye opening rate of change indeed. Expect the rate to increase and accelerate as time passes. ” -OSJ
