"The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the world average," said WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas. The development had far-reaching consequences. "The poles affect degrees of weather and climate in lower latitude, where hundreds of millions of people's lives." last week, Greenpeace Russia published a photo showing a forest fire in the Krasnoyarsk Region

Siberian heat wave accelerated the Eisrückgang

for The second year in a row, raged because of the heat within the Arctic circle, the devastating fires. The most northerly at the time of active fire is located less than eight kilometers from the Arctic ocean, the WMO. On Russian satellites are recording at 22. To see July, 188 probable sources of fire have been.

"The summer of 2019 was on the whole in relation to fires in high latitudes, unusual, and 2020 seems to be similar to," - quoted by the WMO, the scientist, Mark Parrington from the European Copernicus atmosphere monitoring service (CAMS). The Siberian heat wave speeded up the Eisrückgang on the Arctic coasts, especially since the end of June, said the WMO.
