In the very north, waters north of Greenland
are normally frozen even in summer. But these oldest and thickest sea ice in
the Arctic has started to break up, and it has occurred twice this year due to
warm winds and a climate-change driven heatwave in the northern hemisphere. It
has never been recorded before. "Scary" as described by a meteorologist, while
other scientists said that current theories about which part of
the Arctic will withstand warming the longest need to be revisited.
Decision makers might give it a second thought regarding their climate action
plan at national level and greenhouse gas emission reduction ambition at UNFCCC
