Ice melt problem grows
The Kansas City Star
As climate change talks continue this week in Doha, Qatar, research shows that the ice-melt problem in the Arctic is growing.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association reports that this year the Arctic ice melted at a record pace with sea levels climbing in the region. CBS News reports that the ongoing change has disrupted life on land and in the sea.
Greenland also experienced the warmest summer in 170 years. That can’t be good for the planet’s ecosystem.
These are issues being duscussed at the climate change summit in Doha. But the outcome of the talks are unlikely to lead to substantive change worldwide to arrest the escalating, man-made global warming problem.
