According to the experts, the Arctic is one of many places which is the “fastest warming place on the planet.” Supposedly, temperatures in the Arctic are rising several times faster than even the unprecedented heating in Scotland.
The coloured area of the DMI graph below shows Arctic (north of 80N) temperature deviations since the start of summer (June 1.)
Blue represents days when the temperature was below normal. Red represents days when it was above normal. A numerical integration of these regions indicates that this summer/autumn has been a little below normal temperature in the high Arctic.
Remember, this is the hottest year ever, and the Arctic is the fastest warming place on the planet.
