Did you know that sea ice melting in the Arctic can cause the weather to change in every corner of the globe? This is because of our global ocean current patterns!
As global warming increases, melting sea ice can cause sea levels to rise and ocean currents to slow. The consequence of this change in the global currents is that weather patterns also start to shift across the world! Some regions may get warmer, while others get colder.
Preventing extreme changes in weather patterns across the world is just one more reason why we need to work together to prevent climate change!
