Tall waves bash Arctic ice, Another Sign Climate Change is Warming the Seas

Much of the Arctic is made of ice, but as global warming is happening, the ice is melting. During May 2010, a scientist have discovered a giant wave rolling across the arctic. This was discovered by accident. Aleksey Marchenko makes a trip to the arctic every year.This trip was different however, as they moved in closer, the waves became bigger and bigger. The size of the waves were 30 feet or higher.

I think that global warming is affecting the whole world, because a lot of animal habitats are being destroyed, like the arctic seals and the polar bears. The presence of large, powerful waves in these areas makes navigating them more dangerous. The speed of the waves makes it impossible to know when the waves are coming.

  1. Giant waves sound scary! They will obviously affect shipping. I wonder how sea creatures and birds will be affected?

  2. With these waves, it could affect the people traveling there. I also think that the polar bears and other animals that would also be affected there.
