Beyond the extreme: Scientists marvel at increasingly non-natural Arctic warmth

Didn't see this posted elsewhere. Of course, this story has received lots of coverage here, but it just keeps getting worse.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2017/02/01/beyond-the-extreme-scientists-marvel-at-increasingly-non-natural-arctic-warmth/

The Arctic is so warm and has been this warm for so long that scientists are struggling to explain it and are in disbelief. The climate of the Arctic is known to oscillate wildly, but scientists say this warmth is so extreme that humans surely have their hands in it and may well be changing how it operates.

Temperatures are far warmer than ever observed in modern records, and sea ice extent keeps setting record lows.

2. The use of the words "marvel at" stands out for me.

from dictionary.com" something that causes wonder, admiration, or astonishment; a wonderful thing; a wonder or prodigy: The new bridge is an engineering marvel. 2. Archaic. the feeling of wonder; astonishment."

With all the red in the graphs I was thinking we should add to the definition "3. He marveled at the spray from the arterial cut". or maybe "they marvel at the height of the flames as their house burned".

I marvel at the CATO Institute guy still saying that this is still mostly "natural variation" but there "may" be a problem.
