Arctic spring

Nature published an article yesterday that said that the Arctic spring has moved 14 days earlier in a decade! For someone who loves nature, that is an amazing statistic, but is it a clear sign of global warming?

Its amazing to think around a thousand years ago Eric the Red brought the Vikings to live on Greenland, where they lived happily by and large, until there was a climate reversal and a great cooling three hundred or so years later.

The climate is a fascinating if hugely complicated subject and I find as much conflicting information as I find complimentary on the issues surrounding climate change. Time will tell!
