February 22: Polar Ice
We know the polar ice caps have been melting at an alarming rate, dropping their icy load into the ocean currents. The ice travels the currents, melting as it goes, and lowering the temperature of those currents and the surrounding oceans. Short term, this means we will have some colder winters as the ice is no longer concentrated at the poles and the resulting cold water flows around the globe in ocean currents.
When the polar ice is depleted, the temperatures will further moderate.
As long as those polar caps are melting, we are experiencing global warming.
