The Earth has long proved just how stable its climate is. Ron Clutz has picked up on an interesting paper by the Russian V. F. Zacharov on how the Arctic climate regulates itself.

 

Scientists have studied the Arctic for a long time at the prestigious AARI: Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute St. Petersburg, Russia. V. F. Zacharov has published a complete description supported by research findings under this title: Sea Ice In the Climate System A Russian View (here)

Below I provide excerpts from this extensive analysis to form a synopsis of their view: Component parts of the climate system interact so that Arctic Sea Ice varies within a range constrained by those internal forces.

The most probable regulator of the physical geographical process can be found from analysis of the relationships between the components of the climate system. It is not necessary to investigate the cause-effect relationships between all these components in succession. It is sufficient to choose one of them, let us say sea ice, and consider its direct interaction with the atmosphere and the ocean – in the climate system and the significance of internal mechanisms in the natural process.

 

The graphic below sums up the whole process succinctly:

    Re the Earth’s stable temperatures, here’s a shocking graph from C3. Check out the runaway, unstoppable irreversible and (of course) catastrophic global warming. Horrific, eh?
