They say Arctic temperature is up 20C. Not true.

Russian Research Institute of Arctic and Antarctic forecasts Arctic temperature decrease cycle beginning 2020, decrease will last until 2030-2040, causing ice cover growth. During last decade average temperature in Arctic rose some 3C degrees, which is explained by 60-year cyclic climate fluctuation.

Maybe because Russian State bodies and enterprises trust this renown Institute more, than they trust Global Warming proponents, they’re building now a series of most powerful in the world nuclear icebreakers, and design super powerful icebreaker, all to be ready in 20-th. By that time, according to Global Warming theory, Arctic ice is to melt, making Arctic seaways ice-free. Something is definitely wrong either with theory, or with Russia, which, being deep in economy crisis, found nothing better to do, than to waste billions on building unnecessary icebreakers.

The world was shocked by Nov 2016 news on Arctic average temperature being 20C above what it should be. It’s, to put it mildly, a small misinterpretation. Powerful cyclone brought warm air masses from the Atlantic to some areas in Arctic in November 2016, and temperature rose to about – 5C, well above seasonal average temperature. It was record high until cyclone died, i.e. it lasted several days. That was quite natural weather phenomenon, while exactly in this time Siberian regions reported record low November temperatures, down to – 40-45C. Siberia is a region which borders Arctic, or is part of Arctic, in case somebody doesn’t know it.
But nevertheless, that record high temperature in some areas in Arctic, which lasted at most, several days, and was caused by cyclone, was immediately declared as average temperature in all of Arctic, as one more indisputable proof of Global Warming.
I was born and grew up in Komsomolsk-on-Amur city, Russian Siberia and Far East, with average winter temperature around – 25C, often down to -30C, sometimes to – 40-45C. No warming in sight, I was told by my friends living there all their lives.

Check anything you’re told on Global Warming apocalypses, and you’ll be surprised by the number of misinterpretations like the one described above.
