Arctic Sea Ice Melting Report Card 2012

"What happens in the Arctic doesn't always stay in the Arctic. We're seeing Arctic changes in the ocean and the atmosphere that affect weather patterns elsewhere," said NOAA chief Jane Lubchenco. Arctic glaciers have retreated at record levels in 2012, while summer snow melted in the region much more rapidly than it has in the past, according to a new report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In other words, what is happening in the Arctic will change the weather in other parts of the world.
