Sea surface temperature anomaly for the Northern Hemisphere, 17 September 2014 Graphic: NOAA / arctic-news.blogspot.com

(Arctic News) – For the first time in thousands of years, warm water is flowing into the Arctic Ocean. Warm water from the deep ocean is showing up on surface images. There is no way to put this into the context of 'normal.' Historic temperatures have kept the Arctic frozen on an even keel for thousands of years. Even if there was a 'natural cycle' it has been completely overridden by the astonishing amount of pollution that is going into the atmosphere.

Over 90 percent of Earth's energy imbalance has been going into the oceans, almost unnoticed by people keeping track of the temperatures in the atmosphere. The warmer ocean water is going through the Bering Strait and into the Chukchi Sea, Barents Sea, East Siberian Sea, and worst of all, the Laptev Sea.

There are methane hydrate concentrations in all of these areas up to 1,500 feet deep for miles and miles. There are fractures here that give mantel methane a route to the surface that have been safely sealed by ice. The hydrates and seals are thawing. [more]

    Another Global Warming hack job. There is no warm water flowing from deep in the ocean, as the deeper you go, the colder it gets. Unless there are major volcanic eruptions going on undersea in that area, this data is bogus.
    As for "pollution" causing "warm" water to flow up from the bottm of the ocean??? Get real.....

    What a bunk debunk anonymouse!

    Quote from original article: "On the Greenland side, warm water is flowing into the Arctic from the Labrador, Greenland and Norway seas. The international SWERUSs-C3 expedition on the icebreaker Oden is recording 'mega flares' of methane."
