Cold Spring Linked to Dramatic Sea Ice Loss

hrvatska (790627) writes "An article at wunderground.com reports that researchers have linked large snowstorms and cold spring weather across Britain and large parts of Europe and North America to the dramatic loss of Arctic sea ice. It is thought that the Arctic ice loss adds heat to the ocean and atmosphere, which shifts the position of the jet stream allowing cold air from the Arctic to plunge much further south. Researchers expect that a warming Arctic ocean will drive more extreme weather in North America and Europe."

If it's too cold, cause global warming.
If it's just right, cause global warming.
