Climate Scientists Panic As UK Officially Declared Colder Than The North Pole
Experts warning that the climatic conditions are changing in the Arctic for good,
The UK has been officially declared sold than the North Pole has temperatures plummet prompting climate change debate to resurface.
Many parts of Britain has experienced the coldest weather for February in decades as the strange phenomenon is triggered by so-called Beast from the East icy air flow from Russia.
Some experts are warning that the climatic conditions are changing in the Arctic for good, resulting in countries like the UK becoming colder.
The northernmost weather station in the world, Greenland’s Cape Morris Jesup, has recorded temperatures above freezing according to the Danish Meteorological Institute.
The Express reports: Today, the leading conservation organization, WWF, warned that the North Pole and parts of the Greenland are predicted to be almost 30C warmer than historical levels.
Rod Downie, head of polar programmes at WWF, said: “The Arctic is in meltdown, and wild and weird weather is happening in front of our eyes. We need to take responsibility as evidence shows us that sea ice is in severe decline due to our changing climate. We need to act now to cut carbon emissions and ramp up efforts towards a renewable future, to secure a future for Arctic wildlife and people.”
Climatologists will see in March whether the amount of global sea ice reaches a record low. Already, January’s figures have shown the sea ice cover across the Arctic is 525,000 square miles less than the 1981-2010 average. Experts say over the past four decades the Arctic has lost an area of sea ice the equivalent of about a quarter the size of Europe.
With the 10 of warmest Arctic years on record happening since 2006, and 2016 declared the warmest since records have been taken since 1900, the WWF says urgent action is needed to meet 1.5C goal outlined in the Paris Agreement to stabilise the Arctic and secure the nature and people of the far north.
