Not just polar bears will feel the heat

THE PLACE that has witnessed the fastest rise of temperature is not as might be thought a desert, but rather the Arctic. A meteorological station at Banak in the north of Norway within the Arctic Circle recorded a temperature of 32 C not long ago, the first time that it has recorded a temperature above 30 C, which is well above the average summer high of around 20 C. Beijing News commented on Thursday:

Although Banak is still far from the Arctic Ocean, and not home to polar bears, many people have taken the opportunity to put the spotlight on the dying out of world's largest bears.

One thing is for certain, the Arctic is extremely sensitive to clime change, and the speed of its warming up is twice the global average.
