- Arctic ice 0.7 meters thick: proof of catastrophic climate change near the North Pole. Just a few years ago, the ice floating on the Arctic Ocean was four meters thick. And it covers less than 60% of the area it did 25 years ago. The cause is global warming, whose effects appear here sooner than anywhere else in the world, as imbalances in the ecosystem. With the ice gone, polar bears have lost their seal-hunting grounds; they now face extinction. As Ice Disappears, Polar Bears May Follow draws on the latest research to examine what is happening to our North Pole.
