Arctic sea ice is melting faster than scientists had expected. The National Snow and Ice Data Center says the rate has accelerated to 11.7% per decade.
That is far too fast for Native Americans who live on permafrost thatís also thawing rapidly. Environmental biologist Jon Rosales spent this past spring getting a first hand look at effects of climate change in northern Alaska. He visited three villages on the Seward Peninsula. He told Martha Foley that even in late spring, he says, the snow was horizontal. But, still, everything is too warm.
