Due to the rise in Global Warming at such an alarming rate, the concerns are increasing day by day. The new concern that is totally visible is the melting of ice at Arctic Sea at a faster pace. The ice of Arctic Ocean is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world and is a major concern. More than 90 scientists have warned about the complete ice-free Arctic Ocean by 2040.
A recent assessment conducted by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme, in which more than 90 scientists were present concluded that this region had been warming twice as fast as the rest of the world for the past 50 years.
According to Independent, it would only take two decades from now for the Arctic Ocean to vanish completely. “The recent recognition of additional melt processes affecting Arctic and Antarctic glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets suggests that low-end projections of global sea-level rise made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are underestimated.”
This will not only affect the water level but all the species like polar bears, seals, walruses and ice-associated algae. This is an alarming stage where some action should be taken otherwise we will soon loose our ecosystem. If these incidents keep happening at such fast pace it is for sure that even we humans will soon be extinct.

Not only the places near the Arctic Ocean should take action but it’s an alarming threat to the whole world. This is an alert that should be taken seriously otherwise there will be severe consequences to it.
