Interesting news article how our arctic temperatures can change other climates around the world what do you think??:confused:

This report, released Dec. 17 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration — an agency within the United States department of commerce — says Arctic air temperatures continue to increase more than twice as fast as the global average.

And the consequences of this increase, and other climate-changing trends, aren’t limited to the Arctic, said “The Arctic Report Card 2014” — an annual update on the NOAA’s State of the Arctic Report launched in 2006.

“Arctic warming is setting off changes that affect people and the environment in this fragile region, and has broader effects beyond the Arctic on global security, trade, and climate,” Craig McLean, an official with NOAA, said in a Dec. 17 NOAA news release.
