Our Q3 State of the Climate report is now out. We find 2020 is more likely than not to be the warmest year on record despite a growing La Niña event. We also saw the second lowest Arctic sea ice on record, and record high GHG concentrations.
At the September minimum, Arctic sea-ice extent is half of what it was 40 years ago (yes, 50% decline). And it keeps declining... Summer sea-ice will be gone in the next decades, & we just sit there are watch it disappear 😢
