Study Finds the Arctic Is Heating Up Faster Than Previously Predicted

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.

According to the study, current computer models used by scientists struggle to capture the relative speed of Arctic warming.

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.

Things are moving faster than we could have expected from the model projections, Richard Davy, a climate scientist at Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway, via NPR.

The team's findings were published in the journal Communications Earth & Environment

Italy lets minors, sick to get off; Stops 35 adult males | Oneindia News *International

After much dilly-dallying, the Italian authorities have finally allowed Humanity 1, a rescue ship carrying 179 refugees and migrants to enter a port in Sicily and have begun disembarking children and sick or “vulnerable” people.But in a move that raised much eyebrows, Italy has refused to let 35 adult migrants ashore on one of the vessels. Italy's Interior Minister has already said that those who do not 'qualify' will have to leave Italy's territorial water. Humanity 1, run by German charity SOS Humanity, said it was told by Italian authorities to come to the port of Catania to land minors and people needing medical attention. But it has also challenged the government’s move to distinguish “vulnerable” refugees and migrants, saying all of the people on board were rescued at sea and that alone qualified them for a safe harbour under international law. This past Friday, Humanity 1 was allowed in Italian waters only long enough to disembark minors and people in need of urgent medical care. The measure was approved after Germany and France each called on Italy to grant a safe port to the refugees and migrants, and indicated they would receive some of the asylum seekers so Italy would not bear the burden alone. No such provisions have been offered to the other three ships that have been seeking safe harbor in the Mediterranean. 3 other rescue vessels that are left stranded are Norway-flagged Geo Barents, German-run Rise Above, and the Ocean Viking, run by a European NGO. These 3 vessels have around 900 migrants that are seeking refuge from Rome. #Humanity1 #Italymigrant # Italy
