Arctic Council Reports Record Temperatures Since 2005

A report out from the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program, of the Arctic Council,  indicates that surface temperatures in the Arctic since 2005 have been higher than for any other five year period since records keeping began more than one hundred years ago. The rate of sea ice decline has been higher than that predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2007.

The Arctic Council monitors the Arctic and provides advice on Arctic environmental protection.
