"Arctic - Ground Zero for climate change"

Temperatures in the Arctic might increase by nine degrees by the end of the century, which is considered a tremendous change said Patrick Tucker, director of communications for the World Future Society.

At a global conference last March in Copenhagen, scientists announced that climate change is occurring faster than expected.

One month later, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecast that Arctic ice would melt away within 30 years.
