I don't know.
Right now,the North Pole is 36-degrees F,and the sun isn't up.
There's a lot of methane up there,and as the ice goes the albedo goes ,warming amplifies, which accelerates the methane release, exacerbating the warming,which exacerbates the melting,albedo,ad infinitum.
Melting at Greenland,the Arctic,and Antarctic are exceeding model forecasts.Glaciologists are bewildered.
It's the self-reinforcing feedback loops and non-linear progressions climatologists wig-out over.
