"It's Not Whispering Any More"

Did you hear the one about the Arctic? It's melting.

Just out, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Arctic Report Card, 2016.

Here's an apt summary from one scientist:

The environment has steadily declined since scientists started doing the annual report card, now in its 11th year, co-author Donald Perovich said.

"When it started, you kind of had to listen closely because the Arctic was whispering change," said Perovich, who works at Dartmouth College's Thayer School of Engineering in New Hampshire.

"Now it is not whispering anymore. It is speaking change. It is shouting change."
