“The Polar Regions in a 2C warmer world” | Just out in , a review led by my former colleague Eric Post looking at what a 2C warmer world looks like in the polar regions, and larger climate & policy implications
A lot of talk about the unprecedented current Arctic heat wave. For the broader #climatechange context behind what we're seeing, check out our recent review article (Post et al) in "The Polar Regions in a 2C World"
"As Earth approaches 2°C warming, the Arctic and Antarctic may reach 4°C and 2°C mean annual warming, and 7°C and 3°C winter warming, respectively." New important paper by E. Post .. et al.
Frightening read on 'The polar regions in a 2°C warmer world'. "As Earth approaches 2°C warming, the Arctic and Antarctic may reach 4°C and 2°C mean annual warming, and 7°C and 3°C winter warming, respectively."
Check out our latest paper were we review the impacts of a 2ºC warmer Earth in the Polar Regions. It's been an honour to co-author this work with an amazing team of researchers led by Eric Post
With 2C of warming the Arctic will experience 7C (13F) of warming or more during late fall. Incredible. As evidenced by the past several years, what happens in the Arctic does not stay there. Ripple effects will continue to swell...
The polar regions in a 2°C warmer world - "...it is essential to also accelerate efforts to better understand, prepare for, and be able to address the environmental, ecological, and societal changes that will result from continued high-latitude warming."
