I realize that this is weather related, but wasn't sure which of the weather forums it might fit in. Probably because I am fairly ignorant on the topic.
What impact has the melting near the poles had on the ocean temperature in the region? I would assume that the melting glaciers would act much like the ice in your glass and it's melting would cool the water.
What impact would cooler ocean water near the poles have on the overall weather pattern? Wouldn't it lower the temperature of the air in the immediate area? Wouldn't the cooler air result in altered wind patterns which might have have some effect on weather patterns?
I think that we might get too caught up in global ocean temperatures and overlook the impact that regional ocean temperatures can have on shifting weather patterns.
Climate is a subject where what we don't know dwarfs what we do know, and there are undoubtedly numerous mistakes in our approach because of general ignorance.
Sorry if this is annoying, I was just hoping that someone would set me straight.
