In the News (from Sci-Tech Today): “Complex wind patterns are being affected as melting arctic sea ice exposes huge areas of normally frozen ocean to the atmosphere above. The loss of arctic sea ice could be influencing high-pressure weather systems over northern Russia that bring very cold winds from the arctic and Siberia to Western Europe and the British Isles.
“’The current weather pattern fits earlier predictions of computer models for how the atmosphere responds to the loss of sea ice due to global warming,’ Professor Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany said. ‘The ice-free areas of the ocean act like a heater as the water is warmer than the arctic air above it. This favors the formation of a high-pressure system near the Barents Sea, which steers cold air into Europe.’
“Earlier research predicted colder winters in Western Europe as a result of melting sea ice.”
My Comment: The system of mutual dependence is much more complicated, and everyone will feel unpleasant changes, winter or summer, not only on oneself, but also on vegetative and animate nature (agriculture, health, etc.). If a person brings himself to balance in society, he will reach balance with nature, and there is no other means to achieve homeostasis!
