apocalyptic fact of the day

according to story in the Vancouver Sun today Arctic ice caps are melting at an alarming rate – and global warming is impacting the arctic at 2 to 3 times the rate of other areas of the world.

this report is based on an 8-year study that has tracked the decline of wildlife and impacts on people living in arctic regions. of course, climate change is only one of the factors affecting this part of the world – others being chemical pollution, increased UV radiation, habitat destruction and over-fishing.

rapid melting of northern ice caps means an increase in the rate of both warming and cooling streams and could likely lead to catastrophic ecological changes.
