Records may be set this week but that too is not unusual. What is occurring has happened before. The current melting of the Greenland ice sheet has exposed the farming settlements of the Vikings. Think about what that means. They can’t farm there today, at least not yet.
We are at the end of nearly 400 years of global warming induced by solar activity. That has recently taken a major turn. It began more than 30 years ago. Although the effects have been slow because the enormous thermal capacity of the oceans take decades to respond. People expect instantaneous everything and nature is anything but. The hype is sickening.
