The melting ice of the Arctic has passed. Frozen for 70 years in advance
The numbers are shocking. At the end of July last year, 40% of the 4000-year-old Milne Ice Shelf located in the northwest of Ellesmere Island had disappeared into the sea. therefore, Canada’s last intact ice shelf no longer exists.These are part of the data in the report published by the newspaper protector.
On the other side of the island, the ice sheet of St. Patrick’s Bay has completely disappeared.Scientists studying the Arctic came to the conclusion that The ice field has passed. The accumulated snowfall each year is not enough to make up for the loss of ice and snow in summer. This process exacerbated the condition of 234 glaciers in the region during the summer.
During 2019, the ice sheet lost a record amount of ice, equivalent to 1 million tons per minute (I suggest you re-read this figure to understand what is happening). As we all know, the Arctic seems to be disappearing, and this process is happening faster than anyone imagined decades ago..
EThe process of death prediction
The data we know today are shocking because they show that today’s seemingly disproportionate predictions are closely related to reality. E.g, Northern Siberia and the Canadian Arctic are heating up three times faster than the rest of the world. The positive temperature abnormalities in these areas on the earth are the cause of increasing global warming.
In the past ten years, The Arctic temperature has risen by almost 1°C. If greenhouse gas emissions remain the same, it is not unreasonable that the annual temperature will rise by 4°C by the middle of this century. These profound and fast-paced changes are affecting all life in the Arctic. If everything seems to indicate that no return point has passed, then the well-known North Pole will no longer be possible.
A new study Natural climate change prophecy By 2035, summer sea ice floating on the surface of the Arctic Ocean may completely disappear. Until recently, scientists thought that this would not be reached until 2050 at the earliest. To confirm this line, last month, Arctic sea ice reached the second lowest level of satellite data in 41 years.
Defrost 70 years in advance
Talk to protector, Julienne Stroeve, Senior Research Scientist National Snow and Ice Data CenterHe believes, “The latest model basically shows that no matter which emission scenario we follow, we will lose the sea ice cover in summer by the middle of this century. Even if we keep the temperature below 2°C, it will be enough to lose in a few years. The sea ice of that summer.” A clear way to show that the point of no return seems to have passed.
In the Canadian Arctic, Permafrost is 70 years ahead of schedule. The road is curved. The house is sinking.In Siberia, as the temperature soared, huge craters ruptured the tundra, reaching 38°C in Verkhoyansk in July. This spring, The fuel tank of a Russian power plant collapsed And 21,000 metric tons of diesel was leaked into nearby waterways. The cause of the leak was attributed to the reduction of permafrost.
Animals and plants collapse endlessly. It is worth mentioning that the global population (reindeer family) of reindeer and reindeer has decreased by 56% in the past 20 years. These losses have destroyed the indigenous peoples, whose culture and livelihoods are intertwined with the plight of reindeer and reindeer. The Inuit use all parts of the reindeer: hemp thread is used for thread, leather is used for clothing, antlers are used as tools, and meat is used for food.
