Climate Change Causes Permafrost Melt In Alaska

KIVALINA, ALASKA - SEPTEMBER 17: A section of an embankment is seen where due to permafrost melt the dirt wall collapsed on September 17, 2019 near Kivalina, Alaska. Permafrost which is found to some extent beneath nearly 85 percent of Alaska has been melting due to earths rising temperatures. Reports indicate that as the permafrost melts, it releases carbon dioxide which adds to the greenhouse gas effect that continues to warm the planet. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
