61 hours so far above freezing at the North Pole in the middle of winter, and at night - the sun set in October. Pack socks a thick jumper and a flask of tea, you're good to go.

Apologies for the guy wearing CGI glasses you keep waiting for the special effects to kick in.

Somebody should get this guy an astronomy book. The sun doesn't set in October at the north pole and has already risen.

Did you know there's was more ice this winter than last year in the Arctic?

Only paraphrasing the clip but yes that's what happens up north - it's called the Land of the Midnight Sun because of the summer - rest of the time it's the land of the mid-day midnight and 6 months of it but that don't sell the place so well.

As for your ice update - it's a bit early to call this year as it's measured at the end of the arctic summer, pencil something in for september.

Nope. It's measured during the winter.

You might this interesting. If you look at the first 100 days it does show Arctic warming. Still, as I told one woman I know is that I don't think we're getting climate change right. Assumptions were made by scientists about how our atmosphere works. Kind of why I'm hoping to try an atmospheric chemistry experiment this year.
..I tend to think that ozone depletion and waste heat have caused changes in the Arctic that allow for more warming.

Arctic not so chill this record warm winter: scientists
http://www.presstv.com/DetailFr/2018/03/07/554624/Arctic-US-Europe-scientists-global-warming-Alaska-weather

"It's just crazy, crazy stuff," said Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, who has been studying the Arctic since 1982. "These heat waves, I've never seen anything like this."

It's been so unusually warm that the land weather station closest to the North Pole — at the tip of Greenland — spent more than 60 hours above freezing in February. Before this year, scientists had seen the temperature there rise above freezing in February only twice before, and only ever so briefly...

Give yourself a chance - don't measure it during the winter.

..Up there during the winter daytime can be 4 to 6 hours of twilight.

"Sweating in Twilight" - be a good name for a band.

Outlook shows no break in the heat

"With the average temperature hovering north of negative this winter, Utqiaġvik and much of the Arctic once again broke records with a season that didn't match up to historic expectations...

... Arctic sea ice reached its annual maximum extent on March 17, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, with cover at 5.59 million square miles. It's the second-lowest cover on record and just 23,000 square miles more extensive than the record low, which happened last year. The four lowest maximum extents on record have happened recently, in 2015, 2016, 2017 and now, 2018."

While at the same time, Antarctica had a maximum record ice extent ever recorded.

Funny how that works, isn't it.?
