(Must-watch video that includes direct observation and analysis of Arctic tipping points provided by a number of the world's top climate scientists.) You don't want to mess with Arctic warming. It's an engine of destruction straining to be set loose. A mad burning beast of a thing. One whose fires we are now in the process of stoking to dangerous extremes.
Don’t believe me? Then just listen to top scientists like Dr. Jennifer Francis, Dr. Jason Box, Dr. Jeff Masters, Dr. Natalia Shakhova, Dr. Igor Semiletov, Dr. Peter Wadhams, Dr. James Hansen, Dr. Steve Vavrus, Dr. Ron Prinn, Dr. Kevin Schaefer, Dr. Nikita Zimov, Dr. Jorien Vonk, and a growing list of many, many more (also see above video).
An Arctic that Appears on the Verge of Large Carbon Emissions Adding to an Already Dangerous Human Warming
At issue is the fact that the Arctic is very sensitive to global heat forcing. And any small warming there can rapidly trigger a number of feedbacks that generate more warming for the Arctic and the globe. These feedbacks include but are not limited to:...

Garry Rogers's insight:
GR: In this video, arctic scientists describe the dangers, list the expected outcomes, and explain why we must cut fossil fuel burning immediately. Definitely worth watching.
