Global Warming Poses Serious Threat to Arctic

Global warming in the Arctic is proceeding at almost twice the rate of the rest of the globe, according to a new international study released Monday.
Effects of global warming in the Arctic region include a major decline of summer sea ice. If the trends are not stopped the effects would likely see the extinction of species including the polar bear and various seals, and flooding due to higher sea levels.
The effects were attributed to global warming caused by carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse gases” caused by human activities around the world.
The climate change will mean more forest fires and insect infestations, as well as flooding in coastal areas. Increased levels of ultraviolet radiation are likely to boost the number of cancer cases and immune system disorders among people in the arctic region, the report said.
