IMHO the NAO is EMF related too, w/ fair weather and convective
regions defined by biological activity and persistant EMFs--that
tends to modulate chemistry and upwelling conditions. Here is some
more of the same topic from another bb--I respond not there but here:

"Baltic drainage glaciers:
It looks like you are correct - the Atlantic Ocean captures most of
the Scandinavian glaciers."
There are bigtime Gaia reasons for this. Fresher water bodies are not
going to have the salinity to conduct large scale EMFs as well--and
are likely to be colder in the winter when snow is laid, not rain.
EMFs from biological activity isn't going to happen due to upwelling
patterns and algae's seasonal patterns. It's all electrical and
"Baltic drainage glaciers do exist, though. "
Only from its proximaty to Atlantic gaia feedbacks.
"Nevertheless, I suspect the total amount of meltwater from even a
rapidly melting collection of glaciers would be negligible compared
to the normal rainfall in the Baltic basin. "
SUMMER precip differs markedly from winter--again indicating the
electrical and biological nature of things.
"I'll accept your hypothesis of unusually high rainfall last summer
as the culprit for lowered salinity leading to increased freezing
(assuming salinity is, in fact, lower). "
There are some important CME, electrical things going on with respect
to the sun and the double peak top we had last year in the solar
flaring cycle and those storms. And as you move more toward the poles
in either direction there is an electrical idea that must be
introduced. Now, I have mentioned how charge separation of convection
acts like an amplifying transister in that you get an input signal
from a solar wind pulse of protons and that causes Doran waves that
go first from the south to the north, and the induction averages to
actually produce the current in the earth that comprises the earth's
EMF, the amplification is so strong and bio modulated.
Now, there is a question if there can be weather in the further
northern reaches how can solar activity both cause the wave in non
convective, not EMF distorting areas of charge separation and yet
have storms that ARE EMF distorting compared to the solar input.
The best answer is "back EMF". IOW once a storm ends from the tropics
back there will be a short EMF burst. IMHO this is where you will see
cyclonic activity start . . .
"But the other big factor in Baltic salinity is wind and weather
driving big blobs of normal ocean salinity water through the Denmark
Straits in a highly irregular and episodic fashion. I believe it has
been several years, if not decades since the last big infusion of
ocean water. "
Persistant wind patterns are part of a living earth. Indeed, more
chaotic winds would dictate saline conditions, but the sustained
winds are more about a living earth.
"I contend the Baltic is too heavily influenced by these factors to
draw global warming/cooling conclusions from... but you knew that
already, didn't you? "
And that contention would be wrong because just the glacial layout
tells you about Gaia, and the flooding anomalies and freezing
anomalies tell you Gaia poor--as in poorly modulated.

"The only reason Scandinavia and Northern Europe don't have the same
climate as the Hudson Bay is the Gulf Stream. If the Gulf Stream
circulation changes, the climate of Scandinavia changes - maybe
No. The Gulf Stream brings warm and saline waters--but hardly has
enough energy to cause the warming in the place it does. What REALLy
is occurring is warm salty water is more EMF conductive and it
carries conductively charges from charge separating storm activity
further south and further causes upwelling of biological material to
go along with the sinking of salty waters that have had surface
waters evaporated away. This allows Doran waves to extend far north.
Cirrus are enhanced and cause uplifting of air and surface lows.
