Global warming is one of the greatest challenges that we face today. We already see its adverse effects with water shortages, rising seas, catastrophic fires, and more.

But why does the loss of arctic sea ice matter? You probably don’t realise that arctic sea ice helps to regulate temperatures across the globe. Sea ice reflects about 80% of sunlight into space. This action balances the temperature across the planet.
