Observations show that the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of world;

Would anyone care to guess what this means, or to explain how it happens? Or even write it in scientific language?

The Independent had a story on this earlier in the year. Not that what they say is established beyond doubt but it does reference work by climatologists.

Bearing in mind that all news media will hype the story to some degree to attract readers.
