Let’s Do the Time Warp Again

This was in 2016!

Now I understand the droughts in the Dakotas and the failure of the mustard crop in Canada. A 2°C increase corresponds to a 15% drop in agricultural production. Except, perhaps, in places like Sweden, where wheat production increases.

Look again, the Artic Circle and Northern Greenland both were already above 4°C in 2016. It was 5 years ago, when Akhil Puri wrote 2 degrees- sure doesn’t sound like much…

It explains why we recently saw news that both poles, simultaneously, were reporting record seasonal high temperatures.
