Researchers at Oxford’s Institute of environmental change recorded in the last few months in the Arctic, record heat – temperature, 5 degrees above average.
Forecasters believe that by the new year the excess is 20 degrees and close to zero. The warming is due to currents of warm air from the North Atlantic.
According to scientists, the heat wave in the Arctic is directly related to anthropogenic climate change.
If before such weather anomalies are extremely rare – once in a thousand years, but now this happens once in 50 years.
We remind that last year the nature of the North pole experienced something similar. Then the temperature rose to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
