Is global warming having a greater impact on the north or south pole?

    Arctic melting in Greenland has been one of the more noticeable effects of global warming, but both the north and south polar ice caps are showing signs of increased melting due to climate change.

    In the arctic (north pole), melting of sea ice affects all organisms in the ecosystem, from plankton to harp seals. In Antarctica (south pole), the Emperor penguin colony at Terra Adelie could decline by 95% before the end of the century if melting continues at its current rate. The link below has more information about the effect of climate change at the poles.
