NOAA Arctic Report Card – 2010 update (video)

November 1, 2010

John Cook’s Skeptical Science alerted me to the publication of the NOAA annual report card on the state of the Arctic environment. Cook analyses the most alarming section of the report, on Greenland –  Greenland ice mass loss after the 2010 summer – but the report is worth studying to keep up with the rapid changes in cryrospheric conditions, accumulating ocean heat and the effects on high latitude weather around the globe, such as the harsh winter last year (of which we should probably anticipate further occurrences).

Anyway, this is the presentation video from the NOAA site. (Note to NOAA: next time get a narrator who isn’t on Nembutal, will you?).

…although frankly, you’d be better off reading the thing yourself. The full report is here:
