“Arctic On Thin Ice As Earth Heats Up.” Australian [National, Australia] 23 Aug. 2012:10. Gale Opposing Viewoints In Context. Web. 4 Oct. 2012.
This article, for me, was essential in proving that arctic ice heating up is a problem. It gives me evidence that I can use to prove to disbelievers of global warming and their effects that in time places such as the poles could indeed end up with a complete change in climate and scenery. It not only tells of climate problems of the future but that of the present which helps to prove that it already is a bigger problem than most people expected. All-in-all, this article portrays to readers the effects of a warmer world on the arctic. The Australian is Australia’s only broadsheet newspaper and is led by highly credible and experience journalists.

This article provides me with something that I can use in my research paper that doesn’t only look at the effects of climate change on the polar region as an environmental problem, but as a social one as well. It portrays what would happen to the inhabitants of these people and therefore eventually to us as this problem grows.
