  • North Pole’s Temperature is Proof that 2016 is Earth’s Warmest Year

The north pole’s temperature is proof of the fact that 2016 is the planet earth’s warmest year so far.

The heat levels in the Arctic have hit a high of 36 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, in certain areas of northern Russia, the level of mercury reached 40 degrees which is indeed cause for concern.

These surprising temperatures come at a time when the planet is facing its warmest year so far. 2016 is an anomaly. Most of the researchers are puzzled by this strange rise in temperatures.

While the season is such that in the polar regions there is constant night time and darkness. Yet the fact that the temperatures are still warmer than usual shows that not all is well.

October normally is a period of refreezing in the Arctic. However, this time around the Arctic has not shown this phenomenon with such an intensity as it ought to have.

The data is clear as the light of day. Temperatures have gone sky high and the responsibility rests with mankind. The interventionist ways employed have harmed Mother Nature immensely, according to MailOnline.

While 2016 is the hottest year on record, the Arctic has been especially hit the hardest by this heat wave which has engulfed the global village in its wake.

Whole regions in Russia, Alaska and Canada show this trend. As for the refreezing process, while it is indeed happening, its occurrence is pretty slow.

Many experts have expressed their shock at such an event on Twitter. The temperatures have always fluctuated year to year and of course month to month. Yet this time around it was a case of massive chaos on the weather front. The question on everyone’s lips is: wither the weather?

In fact, 2016 may just have set a world record for being the warmest year in a 122 year period. La Nina may though cause the temperatures to fall. Both Alaska and Finland had the driest of Octobers this time around.

Furthermore, this is not the end of our worries. With President-elect Donald Trump waiting eagerly to become the new POTUS, the trend of pollution and global warming are not about to go away.

Instead they will increase substantially with the progress of time, if Trump keeps his promises of benefiting coal companies and ignoring global warming as a mere hoax.
