Arctic warming 4 times faster

Rapid warming in the Arctic not only directly impacts local communities and wildlife that rely on sea ice, but also has consequences around the world.

Greenland’s ice sheet, which recent studies warn is approaching a melting “tipping point,” contains enough frozen water to cause global sea levels to rise by 6 meters.

New research released on 8/11 shows that the planet’s north pole is warming much faster than scientists once thought.
