Arctic heatwave could break records this year
Scientists have raised concerns over record-breaking heatwave at the North Pole due to rise in temperature up to 20 degrees higher than average. The unseasonably warm weather patterns in the Arctic region are directly linked to man-made climate change. It was found that temperatures throughout November and December 2016 were five degree Celsius higher than average. It follows a summer during which Arctic sea ice reached the second-lowest extent ever recorded by satellites.
