Part of THE changes are warming, but very different from region to region. THE Arctic has got much warmer in recent years, the sea ice used to cover twice as much water before as it does now, but it has not become warmer where I live, and apparently not where you live either. I read somewhere Mongolia was the country where temperatures had increased most. That's one place I'd have though it'd be an advantage, but apparently not.
You're right THE ( I had been forgetting to do that in this thread
) "warming" part is due to THE changes in THE Arctic. But I still think people would take the issue much more seriously, if it had been given another name!
