Melting arctic ice fuels climate change and extreme weather events | DW News

Global climate change is perhaps most clearly visible at the cold top and bottom of the globe. The arctic has been warming up for years – and now, the warnings of experts and scientists are clear for everyone to see – the poles are melting.
As the differences in temperature between the poles and the equatore reduce, the jetstream winds, which move weather around the globe – are slowing down. The result – extreme weather. High- and low pressure systems remain at the same spot for longer, creating floods and droughts.
