Yeah but what do the Ruskies know about cold weather, Huh?
AARI Predicts Arctic Cooling/Ice Recovery To Continue
..The most competent polar scientific organization, Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) in St. Petersburg, Russia published recently 3 books summarizing scientific results of climate changes in the Arctic region for the last century. One of it dedicated to Arctic climate. Based on the results obtained they forecast coming temperature and sea ice cover area changes in the Polar seas for the next 10-20 years.... .
Anomaly of mean annual air surface temperature 1900-2006 in the zone of 70-90 N and its predicted trend (Frolov et al. Scientific research in Arctic. Vol. 2. Climatic changes in the ice cover of the Eurasian shelf seas. -SPb.: “Nauka”, 2007, 158 p.) Larger image here.
The authors showed that the basic causes of the Arctic climate change have the natural origin and potential magnitude of several orders more than that for the level of anthropogenic impact on the climate. Estimates of possible changes of Arctic air temperature and ice cover propagation area for the 21” century are given on a basis of the revealed stable cyclic oscillations of 10, 20 and 50 to 60 years.
