Arctic sea-ice loss has ‘minimal influence’ on severe cold winter weather
12 August 2019
The dramatic loss of Arctic sea ice through climate change has only a "minimal influence" on severe cold winter weather across Asia and North America, new research has shown.
The possible connection between Arctic sea-ice loss and extreme cold weather -- such as the deep freezes that can grip the USA in the winter months -- has long been studied by scientists.
