The climate is running away, it’s hard to keep up with it.

It’s been measured on a daily basis for around 60 years now by the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI). You can follow it on their website, specifically at Ocean.dmi . The data and graphs plotted there is the daily mean temperature of the Arctic area north of the 80th northern parallel and is estimated from the average of the 00z (midnight, GMT) and 12z (noon, GMT) values.

Temperature - MINUS - C - Mean - -29

Right now, the temperature is only MINUS 25 C while the long-term mean is more like -29 C for this time of year—what a heat wave!

Clearly, with such a heat wave, the polar bears must be sweating—and they don’t even wear sweaters!

Course - Arctic - Sea - Stiff - Ice

Of course most of the Arctic sea is frozen stiff and most ice breakers that ply the high Arctic seas in summer are now safely tied up for several months in their home ports.

Interestingly, the idea of a melting Arctic is not apparent from other DMI records, like the Extent of Arctic Sea-ice and the Arctic Sea-ice Volume. In fact, those data show the opposite of the Arctic “melting away” with substantial increases to near record levels on Greenland.

Hope - Bears

Perhaps, there is hope for the bears after all.

So, let’s explore some options that could provide more eco-just living conditions for the sweating bears.

Order - Bears - Heat - Stroke - Temperatures

In order to save the polar bears from heat stroke, they need cooler temperatures. A mere -25 C just won’t do. So, let’s equip them with some portable windmills that can provide the required electric energy to run (also) portable refrigeration for them. Weighing in at a few hundred pounds each, the bears should have no problem with carrying that extra gear. They ought to look at it as a sort of carbon cooling tax—strictly for their own benefit.

Let’s pay them Russkies...
