I'm not sure why people are responding to my post with things loss of arctic sea ice does cause.  I neither said nor implied that it had no effects; merely that it was worth pointing out that it does not have that particular effect.

Mea culpa

Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.

Warning: Loud due to wind



Thawing permafrost releases methane, creating a variety of effects ranging from craters to jacuzzi-like bubbling in lakes.  An uptick in such methane releases in Siberia has been in the news lately (video's from '16, but is from Siberia).
