MELTING ICE: THE END OF THE ARCTIC

BY MARKUS GMEINER

Mohnbukta, Svalbard. Mohnbukta is a bay at the western shore of Storfjorden in Sabine Land at Spitsbergen, Svalbard.

THE END OF THE ARCTIC IS CAUSED BY RISING TEMPERATURES THAT ARE A RESULT OF GREED, IGNORANCE OF HUMANITY, DRIVEN BY CAPITALISM OR, TECHNICALLY SPEAKING, THROUGH THE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM INDUSTRIAL AND NEWLY INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES.

Vatnajökull, Iceland. The largest icecap in Iceland and the third largest glacier in Europe.
The glacier is around 2000 years old, but will be gone in 50 to 100 years.

THERE WILL BE FLOODS AND DROUGHTS. RESOURCES ARE AT A LIMIT. AS A RESULT WE FACE CONSEQUENCES SUCH AS RISING SEA LEVELS, WHICH MEANS A LOT OF COSTAL AREAS WILL BE FLOODED. THE INCREASED TEMPERATURES WILL CAUSE DROUGHTS, THAT LEAVES LAND DOUR AND TURNS RESIDENTS OF AFFECTED AREAS INTO CLIMATE REFUGEES.

The famous mushers with their discodogs from Ilulissat, Greenland. It will be very difficult for the fishermen and hunters to feed their families and dogs when the sea ice has melted.
