Melting Arctic Ice Fuels Climate Change And Extreme Weather Events

Global climate change is perhaps most clearly visible at the cold top and bottom of the globe.

The arctic has been warming up for years – and now, the warnings of experts and scientists are clear for everyone to see – the poles are melting.

As the differences in temperature between the poles and the equatore reduce, the jetstream winds, which move weather around the globe – are slowing down.

The result – extreme weather. High- and low pressure systems remain at the same spot for longer, creating floods and droughts. (📹: DW News)
