Maximum temperatures in the Arctic may exceed those predicted for Canada, in the next five days is expected to rise by 20 degrees Celsius.
In the coming days, temperatures in the Arctic are expected to surpass normal values by this time of the year, something that has already been reported and predicted by experts, this unprecedented rise is being caused by the rising temperature in the North Pole (somewhat the second consecutive year), and scientists believe that this rise was caused by greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.
According to the American Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) quoted by The Guardian newspaper, “Maximum temperatures in the Arctic may exceed those predicted for Canada over the next five days, reaching well above normal by this time of year. Year (20 degrees Celsius) and exceeding the freezing temperature of the water”.
According to a NOAA report presented at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union this December, unprecedented temperatures have led to a delay in the freezing of sea water, leading to the accelerated melting of polar ice in Greenland, one of the Affected areas. The effects of the abnormally low level of ice can be felt in the Indian Ocean and over time may extend to the entire planet.
“It is not a habit to see the Arctic show clearer, stronger or more pronounced signs of persistent warming and its effects on the environment”, said Jeremy Mathis, director of the NOAA Arctic Research Program, who was present at the meeting.
Scientists are increasingly convinced that this increase is due to climate change more recently, a team from the University of Melbourne, Australia, compared different simulations of the natural world, with and without the influence of greenhouse gas emissions, concluding Then that “temperatures recorded in the Arctic in November and December” could not happen in an environment “where human influence has been removed”.
According to the study, coordinated by Andrew King and quoted by The Guardian, “The temperatures recorded this year in the Arctic will become increasingly common and no longer considered a rare event”.
According to the scientists, from 2040 onwards they will be recurrent and expected to happen every two years.
