OK, some predictions to check out how accurate these fellows are. Climate Change: The Next Generation: Arctic warming spike predicted for February 2010 Moving the toggler a slight bit from 2009 to 2010, you will see the spike in the Arctic temperature that is projected by the beginning of next year. This may make you instinctively lean back from away your computer. Seeing this abrupt change almost like being hit by a blast of heat from your monitor. As most of you know, the temperature of the air and waters surrounding Greenland is of special significance. Warmer temperatures are causing the ice sheets and glaciers of Greenland to melt and slide into the sea, forcing a global sea-level rise that is now twice as much as was predicted just two years ago by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
