The Arctic has become one of the world’s ‘hotspots’ for global warming. Over the past quarter-century, temperatures there have been rising roughly twice as fast as in the rest of the world.

“These impacts would extend far beyond the Arctic region,” Pearson said in a statement. “For example, some species of birds seasonally migrate from lower latitudes and rely on finding particular polar habitats, such as open space for ground-nesting.”

In a separate study also published on Sunday, Dutch scientists said that iceshelves in Antarctica — another source of worry in the climate equation — have in fact been growing thanks to global warming.

So global warming has been causing the ice shelves in Antarctica to grow.
