Climate change is concerning scientists especially because heatwaves are hitting the Artics, parts of Australia and United States. Recently the high-temperature spike caused by climate change has induced wildfires in Sidney and Oklahoma. Last week the extreme weather caused a grass fire in Oklahoma, which forced the authorities to ask residents to leave their houses so they can be safe.
According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, the North Pole has lost an area of ice equal to the size of Wyoming in the recent years. An animation of the decreasing Artic Ice Melt can be seen here. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is warning that if the extreme warming continues the Antartic region could experience a climatic shift. This will not only affect the North Pole, it might affect the overall ecosystem.
