It’s Cold in Tromsø

moving_SIE_JAXA

The past couple of days have seen temperatures eventually approaching long-term normal values in Tromsø, at 69° 40′ 58″ N the world’s northernmost city. Provided clear skies, today’s the last chance for seeing the sun rising above the horizon, for the next two months it won’t.  It’s cold right now, minus 9 °C (15 °F).

The Arctic is one of the regions which is strongly affected by climate change and Global Warming. The above (and other pictures on Zach Labe’s blog) is another troubling graph indicating how quickly this vulnerable environment is about to disappears right now.

Well, for those who expect  further exploitation of our planet’s resources it might be exciting instead.
