I live a bit south of the southern border of the subarctic climate (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subarctic_climate
) and have occasionally also had trouble with selecting a proper thread. Mainly this would happen with ecological articles from the popular press, it's easy to open a thread in Science-section if there's a Nature-article to present along with the rest of the text.
There's the 'AGW in general'-guideline on the main page on the forum, thus some of this stuff has gone to 'Consequences' and some to 'The rest' (some personal observations). Some still in the 'Cryosphere' if the thing in question concerns only winter... I'd could suggest opening a 'Changing seasons'-section
under 'AGW in general', this could be a place for ecological/agricultural articles round the world. There's still pretty wild nature even in Europe. At least some of my posts would have been in this instead of elsewhere.
I don't care much of the politics, but the politics (rather, 'pollutics') currently (also here in Finland) is such that... (sigh...). Expecting myself to still do some rants of that too, though most of that should likely indeed go to 'foúl language'-thread...
The fact is the Arctic change is still a symptom of the general AGW. That this may change sometime in the future (loss of summer sea ice, permafrost, meltdown of Greenland, changing weather systems) at least for a while, and thus humanity would become a subservient
(could be a wrong word) influence in the equation of planetary radiation balance, doesn't change the fact the changes we started are global in nature. On this forum, this would mean, to me, a large expansion of the AGW in general section but how to do this best is beyond me. For a temporary solution the bolded proposition above could do, at least I could have thrown in there some phenological (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenology
) maps and seasonal diagrams of various critters and animals, maybe also of smaller vascular plants and trees. (oo, there's an arctic pine (or was it some other species) in Lapland that has increased it's yearly growth 300% in the 2000s, clearly this means CO2 is good for plants)
