High Temps in the Artic, Poles by City-Tech Blogger Saul Colon

Both the North Pole and the South Pole have been seeing record high temperatures and winter heat waves since the 1970s. And more research of the unusual weather happening in both the Arctic and the North Pole is showing that sea ice levels are at the record lows since its previous records in 1997. The warm air from these winter heat waves is not only melting the sea ice but also the density of the ice is decreasing. Although the rise of sea level is helping absorb the heat from the summer which also helps the growth of the ice pack, but with such short seasons the time for ice growth is not long enough to reproduce the ice loss during the summer. The North Pole seems to be doing worse than the Arctic showing record high temperature of 30°F above normal winter temperatures. With this strange phenomenon and strange weather patterns researchers are doing more to try to understand how global warming and the decline of sea ice is affecting our planet.
