Arctic Sea Ice Update

This link is to a new Peter Sinclair 6-minute video that shows how the thinning and disappearing Arctic Ocean sea ice cover is affecting the position of the Northern Hemisphere jet stream. The jet stream in turn affects weather in temperate latitudes leading to greater extremes of temperature and precipitation than was the case when the swings in the jet stream were less pronounced.  Several climate scientists were interviewed and provided evidence shown in the video, including time-lapse satellite imagery.
