  • Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at almost twice the rate of that of the rest of the world.
  • According to the multinational Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, at least half of the Arctic's summer sea ice will melt by the century's end. The Arctic region is likely to warm 7 to 13 degrees Fahrenheit (4 to 7 degrees Celsius) during the same time.
  • By all accounts, the glaciers of Greenland are melting twice as fast as they were five years ago. Recorded spring temperatures on the ice cap have reached almost 20 degrees above normal, hovering just below freezing.
  • Glaciers in British Columbia have shrunk by 16 percent in total area between 1985 and 2000.
  • Average temperatures worldwide have increased by 0.6 degrees Celsius, which is enough to raise sea levels and change rainfall patterns.
  • According to An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore, at least 279 species of plants and animals are already responding to global warming by moving closer to the poles.
  • Causes of Global Warming:

    Global warming is caused by greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide that are trapped by our atmosphere. Greenhouse gases are necessary for life on this planet. But in the last 200 years, human activity has released more carbon dioxide than our planet can handle – too many gases are staying inside our atmosphere, more than at any time in the last 800,000 years. The effects of this global warming of our planet are becoming more dramatic every day.

    Effects of Global Warming:

    Global warming is melting the polar ice caps, robbing polar bears of the ice floes they need to hunt prey. As the annual sea ice melts, polar bears are forced ashore to spend their summers fasting. If the Arctic ice cap continues to melt sooner and form later, polar bears will become too thin to reproduce and they will become extinct by the end of this century.

    The polar bear's home – the Arctic – is experiencing the effects of global warming more than any other place. Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at almost twice the rate of that of the rest of the world, and this is threatening to place the entire Arctic ecosystem in jeopardy.

    Arctic sea ice is shrinking by up to 5% every ten years – sea ice that not only provides hunting ground for polar bears, but shelter and transportation for seals, walrus, arctic foxes, and the Inuit people. The underside provides a surface for algae that support cod, char, beluga, and narwhal. The white sea ice also has a cooling effect on climate by reflecting light away from Earth's surface. As it melts, the global warming advances even more quickly.
