Faster Warming of Arctic Than Entire Earth

Arctic polar region of the earth and it is located at the north pole of the earth. But now the coldest part of the earth is warming at a much faster rate than expected. According to a new study temperature of the arctic is increasing at a faster rate than the rest of the earth. This is the reason why most of the polar bears are migrating to cold places of the arctic. According to a new study published in journal Science, advances arctic temperature is increased by 1.35 degrees Fahrenheit (0.75 degrees Celsius) in the last ten years. Comparing to this whole earth, the temperature is increased by 0.8 degrees Celsius in the past 137 years. If the industrial emission of hazardous gases continues like this, then in the next 20 years Arctic ocean will be ice-free. And the temperature of the whole Arctic will jump up to 13 degrees Celsius.

This study is performed by various wildlife and oceanography experts across the US & Europe. According to animal ecologist and co-author of this study Miss. Kristin Laidre, melting of polar ice is causing problems to many animals like polar bears and seals. These animals are struggling to rest, hunt & run on floating. Most of the fishes are developing new kinds of disease which may harm marine life. According to climate scientist Michael Mann, as the ice is melting which is creating a large amount of water. As the water is in a large amount, it absorbs more amount of sunlight. This will heat the Arctic more than expected.

This increased temperature of the Arctic is affecting the weather of the continental US and all other continents like Europe, Asia, Africa. This is creating unpredictable heatwaves, wildfires & drought. In winter, it creates air vortex all around the eastern & Midwest US. This is the right time for all international authorities to launch new rules and regulations about industrial emission to control climate change and warming polar regions of Arctic.
