As the arctic grows warmer and warmer there is less ice for the arctic hares to live on. Carbon Dioxide is getting caught in the Ozone Layer which is heating up the planet, including the arctic circle.
Currently, researchers are trying to prevent CO2 being released into the atmosphere, by creating Eco-friendly products such as electric cars and and alternative means of energy.
