Description

Scientists recently reported that the Arctic is warming at the fastest rate of any region on the planet, about twice as quickly as the globe's average rate of warming, Not only that, according to the 2014 Arctic Report Card , which was released earlier this month by an international team of scientists, but the effects of this warming are increasingly visible well beyond the region's iconic sea ice and polar bears. Spearheaded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Arctic Report Card has been produced each year since 2006, and with each passing year, the footprint of climate change throughout the far north is growing. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/1Zy6vB-bCmg/ http://www.wochit.com
