From this year’s Arctic Report Card, an assessment published every year by the U. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration: Despite relatively cool summer temperatures, observations in 2017 continue to indicate that the Arctic environmental system has reached a ‘new normal’, characterized by long-term losses in the extent and thickness of the sea ice cover, the extent and duration of the winter snow cover and the mass of ice in the Greenland Ice Sheet and Arctic glaciers, and warming sea surface and permafrost temperatures.

“The Arctic is going through the most unprecedented transition in human history, and we need better observations to understand and predict how these changes will affect everyone, not just the people of the north,” said Jeremy Mathis, director of NOAA’s Arctic Research Program.

As the report states, the graph illustrates that “the significant post-industrial sea ice decline occurs in concert with significant atmospheric and ocean warming driven by an exponential increase in atmospheric COThis map shows how global temperatures in 2016 differed from those of the early 20th century, before post-industrial-revolution emissions of carbon dioxide began significantly influencing Earth’s climate system.

TORONTO — Andreas Borgman doesn’t want to get too far ahead of himself.

Still, the 22-year-old defenceman realizes what has become apparent: He’s going to make his National Hockey League debut on Wednesday night for the Maple Leafs.“It would be a dream come true,” Borgman said on Monday after the Leafs practised at the Master Card Centre.“I just try to not think about that so much.

What’s happening in the far north cannot be explained simply by invoking natural variability, the report concludes.

Thanks to our influence on the climate through our emissions of greenhouse gases, we’re well beyond the range of natural changes to the Arctic climate system over a timescale of millennia.

The report finds that the current rate of Arctic warming is unprecedented in at least the past 2,000 years.

And the pace of Arctic sea ice loss experienced in the past few decades has not been seen in at least the past 1,450 years.

“As far as what the future brings, I would not know,” Lamoriello said of Polak.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he stayed and practised.” The club is mulling whether to have Liljegren play with the Marlies or return to Sweden.• Also loaned to the Marlies were goalie Kasimir Kaskisuo, defencemen Travis Dermott, Justin Holl, Michael Paliotta, Andrew Nielsen and Rinat Valiev; and forwards Frederik Gauthier, Andreas Johnsson, Tobias Lindberg, Mason Marchment, Trevor Moore, and Dmytro Timashov.

“They are both good veteran players, know how to play,” Babcock said.
