Arctic Climate Change Impacts

As sea ice disappears faster than models predict, coastal communities and true arctic animals like seals, walrus, and polar bears are threatened. They provide a clarion call for action to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and a clean energy future.

As sea ice disappears faster than models predict, coastal Inupiaq communities and true arctic animals like seals, walrus, and polar bears are threatened. 

They provide a clarion call for action to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and a clean energy future.

Melting sea ice combined with proposed offshore oil development in the Beaufort and Chukchi Sea poses double trouble for polar bears.

The Arctic is the "refrigerator" for the rest of the world, and as the sea ice off Alaska's coasts melts it changes the climate and weather in the rest of the United States.
