"We were frustrated by the fact that there's this saying that the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the globe," Mika Rantanen, the lead author of the study, the New York Times. In the last 43 years, the region has warmed 3. The same lake was used in 2019 to supplement the city's water reserves. "But when you look at the data, you can easily see that it is close to four." Rantanen and his colleagues began examining the issue after heat waves in Siberia drew international attention. The study focuses on the period between 1979, when reliable satellite measurements of global temperatures began, and 2021.

It was in a state of emergency for about two months last year after fuel was found in the Arctic city's water supply that made water unsafe for consumption. Climate scientists and the International Energy Agency have warned that humanity must stop extracting oil, coal, and gas and pumping carbon emissions into the atmosphere in order to keep the planet from heating more than 2° Celsius above preindustrial temperatures. There have been hints in recent years that the Arctic is heating up even more quickly than computer models predicted.S.
