The intensification of the climate warming has led to a sharp decrease in ice sheets in Greenland and the Arctic Ocean and an increase in heat absorbed by the oceans as a result of melting sea ice, which is the evidence of the beginning of a vicious ecological cycle caused by increased climate warming. Consequently, protecting the polar glaciers and covering the Arctic permafrost is the ultimate goal of the construction of the Arctic Protection Tower for the balanced development of the local biological chain.
