Climate Change: latest report : The temperature in the North Pole region is increasing three times faster than the entire Earth. A report released on 26 May stated that the temperature in the region was rising much faster than previously predicted. It is estimated that the impact of the rising temperature will first fall on the iceberg of the North Pole.
According to the report, if the Earth’s temperature rises by two degrees Celsius from the pre-industrial level as compared to a decimal five degrees Celsius as determined under the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, then every snowfall of degrees in temperature increases this snow area in summer. The possibility of being lost increases tenfold. These worrying conclusions are expressed in the report released by the North Pole Monitoring and Evaluation Program.
This report has been released at a time when the North Dhruv Council is going to meet in Reykjavik this week. The Council comprises countries bordering the North Pole region. According to one study, the average annual increase in the temperature of the North Pole region in less than half a century from 1971 to 2019 was three decimals one degree Celsius while the temperature of the entire Earth planet has increased by one degree Celsius during this period.
