Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme
"A major new report by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme has recently been released. Its 'Snow, Water, Ice and Permafrost in the Arctic' report executive summary said the years 2005 to 2010 had the warmest temperatures ever recorded in the Arctic.” It pointed out that retreat of the ice cap 'enhances climate warming by increasing absorption of the sun’s energy at the surface of the planet. It could also dramatically increase emissions of carbon dioxide and methane and change large-scale ocean currents.'
Based on the current greenhouse gas emissions path, the report said 'global sea level is projected to rise by 0.9–1.6 metres by 2100 and Arctic ice loss will make a substantial contribution to this'. Such a rise would displace hundreds of millions of people around the world, including the residents of the Greenland capital Nuuk. The city, which hosted the May 12 Arctic Council meeting, lies at an average of just 1 metre above sea level."
