About 20 beluga whales have spent this past week trapped in sea ice, around two breathing holes about 60 miles south of Sanikiluaq.

Many of the belugas have been killed or wounded after repeated attacks by polar bears, who have been hanging around two six-foot-wide breathing holes
THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds climate models are 'inconsistent with past warming'
Our results indicate that for each RCP [Representative CO2 Concentration Pathway] the upper end of the range of CMIP5 climate model projections is inconsistent with past warming.
Russia Much Warmer During Holocene « NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
A new paper provides further evidence that temperatures for much of the Holocene were higher than now, this time in Central European Russia.
Ice Unknown | The Resilient Earth
Aside from pointing out that models do not think, consider their recent track record—ice growing where it shouldn’t, more than a decade with no global temperature increase, no increase in drought or severe storms. If they have gotten so many predictions wrong why should their predictions about global warming be given any credence? The answer is, they should not.
THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Another day, another non-hockey-stick
A paper published today in Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology reconstructs ocean temperatures from corals in the South Pacific and shows temperatures at the end of the record in the year 2000 were not unusual, unnatural, or unprecedented over the past 350 years, and were as warm or warmer in the 1600's during the Little Ice Age.
