For tonight’s Green Report we head all the way north – and I mean all the way north – to the north pole – where for a brief period last Wednesday – something very – very very strange happened.Temperatures shot up in the North Pole to just around freezing – which is 0 degrees celsius or 32 degrees Fahrenheit. And while that might sound downright polar to many people living in more temperate climes – it’s unseasonably warm for the arctic. In fact – it’s about 50 degrees above average. Imagine it being about 95 degrees Fahrenheit somewhere along the northeast seaboard tonight – that’s how crazy warm it was in the arctic last week. So what in the heck is going on? On why is this very very scary news? Dr. James Morison, Polar Science Center-APL-UW joins Thom.
