This Weekend, Europe Could be Colder than the North Pole
At this moment winds from the East are about to blast through Europe, and temperatures are set to fall below zero in certain areas. At the same time, the Arctic is apparently getting a wave of heat.
Right now, the Arctic is reportedly receiving temperatures that are as much as 45 °F (25°C) above normal. On Monday and Tuesday, it was reported that the northern tip of Greenland saw temperatures of about 24 degrees above zero at a weather station at Cape Morris Jesup. “Perpetual darkness” is what you call the Arctic winter in that region, where day time is very short. The usual temperature is around -22°F (-30°C).
Apparently a lot of anomalous temperatures are happening right now. Normally the water should be frozen solid on the Western tip of Alaska, but right now waves are crashing into the region. The Bering Sea is allegedly experiencing its lowest levels of sea ice recorded since the satellite data collection began in 1979.
“This is unprecedented,” climate researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Brain Brettschneider said to Public Radio International. “The amount of ice is less than it’s ever been during the satellite era on any date between mid-January and early May.”
Today’s Bering Sea ice extent was lower than any value from Jan 15th to May 2nd during any of the previous 38 years; and the Feb 20th value was only half of the previous lowest Feb 20 value. #akwx @AlaskaWx @ZLabe pic.twitter.com/FPXThXkdUC

Instead of explaining how this sea ice is measured however, websites like IFL Science explain it like this:
The IFL Science article merely links to a Guardian article about measuring temperature records based on “anecdotal evidence recorded by diarists, and the few thermometer records that do exist” to know the temperatures from the distant past. It’s not very compelling for a critical thinker to reason through.
Cape Moris Jesup, the weather station aforementioned is just 400 miles from the North Pole. Temperatures actually above freezing are very rare in the region, and only in 2011 and 2017 had temperatures recently been recorded that high. However in 2018, it has already been measured above freezing 5 times.
However in Europe temperatures are falling as low as a 35 degree average thanks to what some are calling the “Beast from the East,” possible polar vortex related freezing winds that seem to be pouring in from Scandinavia. Temperatures in Europe may at times be colder than the North Pole.
For Feb 20th, (unofficial) average daily temperature departure-from-normal for North Slope locales: Umiat: +45F (+25C) , Deadhorse +44F, Nuiqsut: +43F, Wainwright: +40F Utqiaġvik: +39F, Kaktovik +35F. #akwx @Climatologist49 @CinderBDT907

Climate change alarmism is being gently inserted into a lot of articles you’ll find talking about crazy temperatures. This IFL Science article says:
“And, has been noted many, many times before, we are the primary driver of this effect of climate change. If these latest temperature jumps don’t alarm you, then nothing will.”
Yeah? Well a lot of people believe geoengineering is the thing causing anomalous weather. Research it, because articles get censored for talking about it: now it’s on you, all people to research this and figure out what is actually going on.
