Record Breaking Weather Events

A firey end of the EarthDefiance sent me some important links: 400 ppm CO2 in the Arctic.  First time in 800,000 years too — and sure to be a LONG time before it goes back down.

Not just the Arctic either:  “Levels exceeding 400 ppm have been recorded this spring in Alaska, Greenland, Norway, and Iceland.”

Wall of Water Floods Montreal

Getting a bit wet up there, are we?  You could say that.

State of emergency up in Ontario.

Extreme rain batters Cuba, forcing mass evacuations.

How about a “Flash Drought“?  A new term to me.  Crop destroying heat.

Oklahoma declares a disaster, severe storms, tornadoes, hail.

Michigan also declares a state of disaster.

Wildfire shatters New Mexico records.

And Italy had another earthquake…  it’s getting downright biblical out there…

    And don’t forget Greenland:

    “The record books for Greenland’s climate were re-written on Tuesday, when the mercury hit 24.8°C (76.6°F) at Narsarsuaq, Greenland, on the southern coast. According to weather records researcher Maximiliano Herrera, this is the hottest temperature on record in Greenland for May, and is just 0.7°C (1.3°F) below the hottest temperature ever measured in Greenland.”

      And don’t forget when you read the wunderground link that you read the “Why Greenland is important” section

      “Temperatures in Greenland are predicted to rise 3°C by 2100, to levels similar to those present during that warm period 120,000 years ago”
