Abrupt changes in the weather — a bad sign. This was confirmed by U.S. scientists at NASA. They received from their satellite photographs of Arctic ice. Frightening picture — five years they became half. Scientists do not exclude that very soon the Earth's climate will change dramatically.
Global warming, extreme weather events, the apocalypse — to arguments about climate change all have long been accustomed to, and often refer to them as it is to the argument. But now NASA specialists released satellite images, which are following the situation in the Arctic in the past five years. Ice did not just melt — they evaporate at high speed.
Cover becomes thinner every year, and chilling scientific discovery melt not only seasonal ice that formed over the winter, and the eternal ice, which have always been. They have less than 40% five years ago. And these global changes on a large area of the planet can only lead to one thing — shake the climate around the world. And this is already happening.
Of course, whether the second consecutive summer, it's not summer in the European part of Russia can be explained by chance, but such weather accidents in recent years to increase.
"Tunable all the atmospheric circulation in the Northern Hemisphere, and a large part of the heat is transferred to Europe, and the Arctic. So we have winters will gradually become softer — "orphan" — and the summer will be less hot, "- said the head of the laboratory for monitoring climate change Institute of Oceanology, Russian Academy of Sciences Sergei Gulev.
Some scientists predict that the ice in the Arctic will not be in just three years, and even predict what forms of life there may appear. Some advantages of the liberation of humanity Arctic ice is — regular navigation in the area to mine without any problems oil and gas. But under the ice, according to many experts, hiding not only fantastic mineral wealth, but also an unprecedented threat to humanity — 1.5 trillion tons of carbon dioxide. This is two times more than now in the entire atmosphere of the Earth. And if the ice will melt, and these deposits will fall in the air, the inevitable catastrophe. So, at least, some of the scientists said. Another part of calms: melting ice in the Arctic ever. In some periods, there were more, some — less. Normal climatic variations.
Now the Arctic ice in the period when the number has dwindled, but that does not mean they are gone forever. On the contrary, is often considered the hypothesis that humanity has yet to experience a new ice age.
