What are the effects of global warming to our freshwater?

    Because of global warming, the permafrost (a layer of permanently frozen ground) is melting.

    Places with permafrost have nearly the same amount of precipitation as a desert – less than ten inches a year. The permafrost is supposed to hold that moisture up near the surface so that in the spring when the top several inches thaws, it can provide a fresh water wetlands habitat for birds, bears, wolves, caribou, and other animals. When the permafrost thaws to a slush, it becomes more of a sponge than a bowl for the precipitation… …and the animals suffer.
