Researchers can’t study impacts of climate change because they’re happening too fast
Earlier this year, scientists were forced to halt a $17-million research expedition to Canada’s Arctic. Dangerous sea ice, floating free because of ocean warming related to climate change, blocked their path north.
“Canada has more coastline than any other country in the world,” geographer Tim Papakyriakou told CTV News. Seventy-five percent of that coastline is in the Arctic, he said, which means it will see the most effects from climate change, and needs to be studied.
