Arctic Ice Falls

Extreme weather and climate conditions, including arctic "heatwaves", have continued into 2017, the UN weather agency said.

What Does This Mean - At the height of Arctic winter and the sea ice refreezing period, there were days which were actually close to melting point.

In The US Alone - 11,743 warm temperature records were broken or tied in February.

Arctic Ice Falls

  • With levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere consistently breaking new records, the influence of human activities on the climate system has become more evident
