FFS climate change is real! It’s still dark, the North pole gets no light yet will be above 0 in the middle of winter.
The sun won’t rise at the North Pole until March 21, and it’s close to the coldest time of year, but an extraordinary and possibly historic thaw swelled over the tip of the planet this weekend. Analyses show that the temperature warmed to the melting point as an enormous storm pumped an intense pulse of heat through the Greenland Sea.
Temperatures may have soared as high as 2 C at the pole, according to the U.S. Global Forecast System model. While there are no direct measurements of temperature there, Zack Labe, a climate scientist working on his PhD at the University of California at Irvine, confirmed that several independent analyses showed “it was very close to freezing,” which is more than 30 C above normal.

I’d say typically I’m an optimist for most things however when it comes to this possible civilization ending problem, I have no faith that humanity will do what’s needed to save ourselves. I’ll live to see the effects of climate change but Brandon and future generations will have to live through the worst of it, all so some corporations can make a bit more money right now. Absolutely disgusting.
