The source of living of the people in Alaska is in danger due to the continuous melting of the ice in its seas. According to satellite information, ocean temperatures in the seas of Chukchi and North Bering are over 10 degrees Fahrenheit (five degrees Celsius) above normal. Climate expert Rick Thoman said that Alaska’s western and northern beaches are the most affected areas of the issue. “The seas are extraordinarily warm. It is impacting the ability for Americans in the region to put food on the table right now.” The population of algae is also growing as a result of the steady warm sea temperatures, which can make the waters dangerous to birds and sea animals. “If people can’t get out on the ice to hunt seals or whales, that affects their food security,” said climatologist Brian Brettschneider. Additionally, scientists explained that events like this are proof of a rising global problem.
