Study Finds the Arctic , Is Heating Up Faster , Than Previously Predicted. NPR reports that new research shows that the Arctic is heating up almost four times faster than the rest of the Earth as a whole. The findings highlight that polar regions are experiencing disastrously rapid climate change. Previously, scientists estimated that the Arctic would heat up about twice as fast as rest of the globe. The new research shows that the region has warmed 3.8 times faster than the planet as a whole in the last 43 years. According to NPR, the study looked at the period between 1979 and 2021. The Arctic is more sensitive to global warming than previously thought, Richard Davy, Mika Rantanen of the Finnish Meteorological Institute, via NPR.

NPR reports that the findings suggest future models might need to be adjusted to predict an accurate rate of global warming in polar regions. This will probably be a bit of a surprise, but also kind of extra motivation perhaps. , Richard Davy, a climate scientist at Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway, via NPR.
