Baked Alaska: Climate Change in the Arctic

Posted January 2, 2015

Arctic Report Card

"The NOAA releases its latest Arctic Report CardIf there’s been any “pause” in global warming, the Arctic hasn’t seen it. The latest Arctic Report Card issued from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows a continued acceleration of climate change in the region.

This latest report shows that Arctic air temperatures continue to rise at more than twice the rate of global temperatures, a phenomenon scientists call “Arctic amplification,” causing a range of impacts. Among them are increasing air and sea surface temperatures, declining reflectivity (albedo) of Greenland’s ice sheet, diminishing spring snow cover on land and summer ice on the ocean, and the declining health and numbers of some polar bear numbers, including those in the Hudson Bay region.

The Arctic is the climatic canary in a coal mine, impacting not only Arctic populations and ecosystems, but the global climate system as well."

And I though Baked Alaska was some cholesterol filled decadent dessert!

This year is expected to bring a breakthrough for global climate action—and that includes the rapidly warming Arctic. "
