CCD Editor’s note: For those that don’t remember, many alarmist news outlets blamed the late-2015 warmth in parts of the Arctic on global warming. They even quoted climatologists who said this had climate change written all over it.
In the winter of 2015/16, something happened that had never before been seen on this scale: at the end of December, temperatures rose above zero degrees Celsius (32°F) for several days in parts of the Arctic.
Temperatures of up to eight degrees were registered north of Svalbard. Temperatures this high have not been recorded in the winter half of the year since the beginning of systematic measurements at the end of the 1970s.
