"This is a region that is fighting back," said lead author Jacqueline A. Richter-Menge, a civil engineer at the Army Corps of Engineers' Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, N.H. "There are things that showed signs of going back to norms, trying to right themselves under very dire circumstances."
Whoa! That Arctic is one feisty dude! I didn't know it even realized what was happening to it. It's nice to see that the Arctic is aware and paying attention. I give it kudos for having the will to fight back.
I like an answer to a question. What is the norm? Why do they take the situation 30 or 40 years ago as the NORMAL earthly climate? The climate is always changing, and it's completely arbitrary to set the situation 30 or 40 years ago as the baseline for a "normal" climate. The climate has seen extremes of heat and cold throughout its history. Who, then, can say what is normal? I think this idea of "normal" is one of the stupidest beliefs of the global warming fanatics.
