Our Shrinking Midwinter Sea Ice by City Tech Blogger Dave

The article that I have found this week talks about how this winter will be the lowest expansion of winter polar ice since records began 40 years ago. Records show that two million square kilometers of midwinter sea ice has disappeared. This could be due to global warming caused by carbon emissions from cars and factories and could have profound implications for the planet. According to the article, researchers believe that a loss of sea ice would mean a loss in reflectivity of solar rays which could raise global temperatures. Researchers now believe that the rise in sea ice loss is now posing threats to Arctic animal species. Many of the animals who live there are forced to travel north because of  retreating ice caps. Researchers say that there is a limit to the distance in which these animals can tolerate. The melting of ice is disturbing the whole ecosystem of the Arctic in which these animals live and the food chain is being impacted. With animals being forced to travel northward it is disrupting the breeding process and the genetic wellbeing of populations.
