Global warming is a phenomenon that has grave impacts on the environment. From lowering or having a hole in the ozone to the depleting ice sheet layers and melting of the polar ice caps, all are related to the increase in the global temperature which is a direct consequence of global warming and has severe impacts on the lives of the creatures, not only in the polar region but also other places in the world as the temperature of the world increases as a whole.
The Arctic circle is depleting as a consequence of global warming and that is due to various reasons, be it deforestation or misuse of resources and extensive burning of fuel. All the reasons together increase the overall release in carbon emission in the world.
What do we know about the depletion now?
Russia is the biggest country in the world, even after the disintegration of the USSR. The country has provinces that are highly polluted, majorly the ones that are urbanized. Researchers have found that if not completely, a part of the reasons why the arctic circle is polluted is due to the city named Norilsk which is also the northernmost city of the world. Parts in northern Serbia that are polluted due to human intervention block sunlight from entering into the land which is a result of the pollution in the areas.
Not only is that country to be blamed, but the research that was conducted made it more tangible for the people to know the reason or the factor that causes the increase in global carbon emission which causes a direct link to the melting of the arctic circle’s ice caps. Many more researchers will convey the same results for other cities too.
