Do you really believe that extensive Arctic and Antarctic melting - in our life time - is of no consequence? New records - beating the previous record of only in 2015?

Fortunately, whether patterns aren't quite that simple or some populate islands low-lying islands are not yet under water. Polar vortex, it seems, is effectively offsetting some of the effects of the warming on the outer shelf. A similar strengthening of such a vortex in the Arctic has caused some unusually long cold spells in otherwise temperate zones.

Cold enough to kill some deciduous trees.

The point is, it's not overblown and is far more important a news post them the color of Kim Kardasian's underwear of some sports figures marital problems. Whether they live or die has little effect on things - melting of the polar ice caps? That has an effect on whether flaura and fauna do live and die. Climate change or a decade or two of unusual weather - this is an important observation.
