Yes please do. Would you please post the Corell document?
This is a reply I got (and mine) from a fellow responding to my post on
Arctic Climate Impact Assessment - Statement to US Senate Committee
by Robert W. Corell to the firstname.lastname@example.org list.

Thank you Tim for this. I live in High Level, Alberta, Canada which
is at 58 1/2 degrees North Latitude. Yes, this is not quite in the
Arctic but the weather in the past few years has indeed been warmer
than usual, and this year has been exceptionally so.
For three of the last four years we have not had the extremely cold
temperatures that we can get here. Temps of about -40 C/F are about
the worst we have had which is warmer than what would be expected. In
January 2003 we got well over the freezing point and did get rain
briefly which I do not think has been seen here. This year has been
one for the books. March started out mildly and today (April 8) our
snow cover is nearly completely gone (more than 95%). Temps have been
in the 60s F (teens Centigrade) for well over a week and it is quite
possible that we can get out on our fields (I am a farmer among other
things) and start to get work done in the next few days. I am told by
a neighbour that the earliest he could ever remember getting out on
the fields was April 15 and normally it is in early May.
The times are indeed a'changing!
Thank you Gerald,
This is an important witness account of what is probably the first
stage of climate change. I hope the full report gets some traction
in time to make a difference.
Something to know is that what's happening to you happens before the
lower latitudes experience the effect.
I suspect the electric bills in Texas in the coming summers are
something we'll have to find a second job to pay all too soon.
May I post your remarks to the
Paleontology_and_Climate@yahoogroups.com list and forward them on to
Robert W. Corell - if you have not done so?
I'm running into a lot of resistance regarding anthropomorphic CO2
forcing, even more in asserting that more
CO2 emissions will raise temperatures even higher. We're trying to
work out the physics of it to know for sure
how to approach a realistic reversal of the effects.
Thanks again for your comments,
