Extreme warming recorded at North Pole

December 11, 2020

In the coming decades, there may be no sea ice left in the Arctic in the summer.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration has recorded an extreme warming at the North Pole.

From the Arctic Report Card – 2020 it follows that this year the North Pole warmed up twice as fast as the rest of the planet. The critical mark broke the record that was set in 2012 for the first time.

Scientists predict that in the period from 2040 to 2060 in the summer, sea ice may melt in the Arctic completely, and permafrost may disappear in Alaska, Interfax reports. This means that scientists do not predict any improvement in the situation and a return to the optimal temperature level, which was last recorded in 2006.

As This Is Taimyr wrote earlier, the Arctic continues to heat up quickly, the permafrost there melted much faster this year. The climate is getting warmer: 2020 is among the three warmest years on record.
