The average temperature in the Arctic region in the recent times has led to melting of ice in the region at a much higher level. The level noticed in January this year, has not been recorded at this level in decades. The current heat wave has alarmed scientists tracking the region. Past records for temperature have been broken and the heat waves noticed in the recent months suggest much smaller ice cover in the region.

Rising temperatures are leading to serious consequences for the Arctic region as old ice is rapidly melting. As 2016 has been one of the hottest years on record in terms of average temperature, ice melting has reached another multi-decade high. Researchers and climatologists have warned over the past many years about melting ice in the Arctic region. However, the new research has suggested that old ice is melting and this could lead to long term loss for ice sheet in the arctic region.

Global warming has been a curse on society from past many years. With the gradual increase in the field of science and technology, new industries are being developed that continue a lot in warming temperatures and making environment impure. Despite of having most hardened icebreakers, the new report surprised scientists with unusually mild winters throughout large parts of the Arctic in January. A freak storm brought temperatures to near the freezing point, or 32 degrees Fahrenheit, near the North Pole for a short time in late December and early January.

An association of researchers from the Laurentian University, Queen's University and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment recently uncovered that even the last few havens in Canada's Arctic are, seemingly, facing risks from global warming.
One of the final refuges has been found as giving in to the increasing temperatures. Not only people have been facing difficulties in living in such a fast changing environment, but polar bears as well are trying to tackle certain risks.
