UN: humanity can not avoid rising temperatures in the Arctic

Under the Paris Climate Agreement, the average temperature in the Arctic will riseby 3°C by 2050 and

This will lead to the melting of glaciers and a rise in the level of the world's oceans, which threatens toflooding of many coastal areas and islands.

In addition to rising sea levels, researchers predict an increase in ocean acidity.

When permafrost thaws, it greatly contributes to an increase in the amount of organic matter in surface freshwater entering the ocean, which in turn contributes to theacidification by decomposition.


Earlier, an international team of scientists found that the melting of the ice sheet in Greenland from 2003 to 2013 had quadrupled. From 2002 to 2016, Greenland lost about 280 billion tons of ice per year.
