In the US state of Alaska, one of the coldest places on Earth, the day temperature rose to 19.4C during the cold season. Meteorologists are shocked by this untoward incident. It is being told that due to the hot winds, the temperature in Alaska has reached 20 degrees Celsius. Not only this, there is heavy snowfall and rain in the area. This caused a power outage and disrupted traffic in the area.
The highest temperature in Alaska was recorded in the Kodiak Islands where the temperature reached 19.4C on Sunday. This is the highest temperature in Alaska in December. Alaska scientist Rick Thoman has termed this change in temperature as clumsy. He said that the month of December is usually very dry inside Alaska, but on Sunday a lot of snow has fallen in this area.
Major roads and offices had to be closed
Torrential rain followed by heavy snowfall made the situation very bad. The entire area was covered with a layer of snow, causing power outages in the entire area, leading to the closure of major roads and offices. The Alaska Department of Transportation has warned that the roads will remain dangerous in the coming times. The reason for this is that there is snow on the road.
Let us tell you that the Arctic ice, which plays an important role in maintaining the balance in the earth’s atmosphere, has become a victim of human greed. Alaska is also a contiguous area. This Arctic ice is melting rapidly due to climate change and global warming. The signs of Earth’s devastation on the Arctic are now clearly visible. It has been estimated in the research that by the summer of 2050, the ice will completely disappear from this route.
NASA continues research on sea ice
The biggest problem is that research has revealed that even if climate change slows down, new ice will not form as fast as the ice has melted. NASA is constantly doing research on sea ice. This organization has done research since 1978 and found that there is the least amount of sea ice in September and the highest in March. Although exact figures vary from year to year, the loss of sea ice in the Arctic is increasing every year.
