    Underscores the need for urgent emergency short-term ‘triage’ intervention #CoolTheArctic (like CPR and tourniquet) to save the ice and restore jetstream & polar vortex normal behavior in addition to #RemoveCO2 & #RemoveCH4 to achieve global cooling and forestall tipping points while we decarbonize. Decarbonization does nothing to address the trillion tons of legacy GHG that drives the melting ice everywhere.
