              FILE - Areas of Greenland are seen from the air near Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, May 20, 2021. Much of the Arctic is in a burst of freak December 2022 warming. Scientists say some of it is random weather from storms and some of it is from low sea ice. The low sea ice is due to climate change.  (Saul Loeb/Pool Photo via AP, File)
