25th October - Today's News: Arctic Summers Warmest for 120,000 Years?

New evidence of unprecedented Arctic warming: average summer temperatures in last 100 years may be warmest in 120,000 years (ie since the Eemian interglacial) - but don't tell the new ice agers: for a new ice age, we'd expect summer temperatures to decline ......  which, to be fair, is also what we'd expect as axial tilt declines (less insolation in summer).





And apparently, we're facing the worst weather since the Great Storm of 1987: Britain set to be battered by 90mph winds and heavy rain from Atlantic storm system - well it does look like being very windy towards the south coast early on Monday morning, but it'll be only the worst storm to hit Britain since last winter.   Perhaps they confused SE England with Britain again?   That said, with southern parts not having experienced any severe gales lately and trees still in full leaf (plus a saturated ground) damage and distruption does look likely.
