Dr. Julienne Stroeve told the environmental group Greenpeace in a press release, “The loss of summer sea ice has led to unusual warming of the Arctic atmosphere, that in turn impacts weather patterns in the Northern Hemisphere, that can result in persistent extreme weather such as droughts, heat waves and flooding.”
Many, but not all, scientists agree that greenhouse gas emissions are the cause of climate change. However, virtually all climate and weather experts predict that the shrinking of the Arctic ice may have a profound effect that could be felt around the world. Major questions troubling scientists and ordinary people alike are: how quickly will these effects take place and what measures are appropriate to compensate.
One of the top concerns is the melting of the Greenland ice cap.
At one point this summer, surface melt was occurring across 97 percent of the Greenland ice cap. The decline of Arctic sea ice does not contribute directly to an increase in sea level. However, because it sits on land, the melting of the Greenland ice cap has the potential to raise sea level by many feet, possibly inundating low lying areas such as New Orleans, parts of Florida and numerous other locations around the globe.
