At long last a normal winter in the Arctic
To the Daily Green ” there’s more ice in the Arctic than at any time in recent years.” To the US National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) specialists March was particularly cold in the Arctic. As they note on their website :
” Ice extent was above normal in the Bering Sea and Baltic Sea, but remained below normal over much of the Atlantic sector of the Arctic, including the Baffin Bay, and the Canadian Maritime Provinces seaboard.”
This shouldn’t deter our efforts in mitigating climate change as the threat is still all too real and as we still have to embrace a low carbon economy.
