Arctic warming could mean Sweden freezing
There were heavy snow flurries in Stockholm this morning, really chilly winds - arctic weather, you might say, as a joke.
But this may be closer to the truth than we think. A researcher says that cold dark clouds from the north pole region are being unleashed on Sweden, by changes in the climate.
Margaret Johansson is a researcher at the Department of Earth and Eco Sciences, at Lund University, and one of the authors of a new report by 200 scientists.
This report is being presented in Copenhagen today - and it says that up in the far north the situation is really getting much warmer, more than they thought before, and that the Arctic ice is melting at a much faster rate; they say this would mean a rise in sea levels of at least a metre by the end of this century.
