By the end of the 21st century, the average temperature in the Arctic will be at least minus 10 degrees. Mathematicians have calculated the likelihood of climate change caused by greenhouse gases. In agreement with their model, the Arctic will be hit hardest by warming. In the most pessimistic scenario, the average temperature in this region will rise by 20 degrees. That is, if now at the coldest point it is minus 30, then in 80 years it will be minus 10. And from the Atlantic Ocean it will rise to plus 20.

It is no longer possible to avoid warming, scientists say. Even if all countries finally reach an agreement and greenhouse gas emissions become zero. This will only help slow down the pace.
