Norway’s Arctic Archipelago Svalbard on Saturday recorded its highest temperature for over 40 years, almost equal to the all-time record. Global warming in the Arctic is happening twice as fast as the rest of the planet. For the second day in a row, the archipelago registered 21.2 degrees Celsius (70.2 Fahrenheit) of heat in the afternoon.
The relative heat wave is a huge spike of normal temperatures in July, the hottest month in the Arctic.
