The Arctic Is Turning Green; Scientists Finally Know Why

Researchers have noticed the color of the arctic slowly changing. Specifically, the ice was taking on a greener color. Now, there’s evidence that suggests the cause is a thinning of the ice that’s letting more light through and subsequently producing blooms of microscopic marine plants. The down side: the green color absorbs more heat, which thins the ice, which lets light through, which creates more marine plant growth.
