Along with the outrageously high anomalous temperatures, is the width of days of temperatures above the "average". Two+ years ago, High Arctic temps remained above "average" for 140 straight days. At the very end of 2015 into 2016, High Arctic temperatures were above "average" for 150 days. During 100 straight days of that period, temperatures were no LESS than 3degC above average & at times, 11degC above "average". Previous to these periods, High Arctic temperatures were above normal for 100 days & nearly so. The "average" High Arctic temperature line doesn't refer to High Arctic temperatures BEFORE High Arctic AGW warming had already started. The "average" High Arctic temperature line is already elevated due to excess AGW heat already in the bio-sphere in the years 1958 through the present.

2015 & 2016 set early year Arctic sea ice extent lows, equal to the ADDITIONAL LOSS of Alaska plus Texas-sized square kilometers! These early year ice lows were important because the sun was at its highest elevation in the sky. Huge amounts of solar energy were water absorbed which otherwise would have been ice reflected back to space. Tho most of the present High Arctic heat arrived from the south on excess AGW energy warm fronts, most certainly some of the excess solar absorbed energy is contributing to present ice forming retardation. What may be an even greater effect for future years, wherever there were downwellings in those Alaska plus Texas-sized waters, excess AGW generated solar energy was conducted to continental shelves or into deep Arctic Ocean waters for long term storage. Of course, that stored energy will make its vehement appearance sometime in the future.

Yes. I've been thinking about an open letter on climate change to the President Elect, but I'm not sure drawing it to his attention would be a good thing. Posted by: Kevin McKinney ////// Yeah, swearing isn't a good political maneuver!
