You may have seen some head­lines recent­ly declar­ing that The Arc­tic is on Fire! Are these just sen­sa­tion­al­ist reports? Or do these fires rep­re­sent an unprece­dent­ed and alarm­ing dan­ger? This weeks guest on Sea Change Radio is Dr. Jes­si­ca McCar­ty, a satel­lite data expert and a pro­fes­sor at Mia­mi of Ohio. She describes how weath­er data are col­lect­ed, explains how this sum­mers arc­tic fires in Green­land, Cana­da, Alas­ka and Rus­sia stack up his­tor­i­cal­ly, and tells us what they mean for the plan­et mov­ing forward.
