The Arctic may seem like a distant place, just as the most extreme consequences of our wasteful use of fossil fuels (may appear)to be in some distant future.

The English language allows the use of "appear" when one is trying to communicate towards a clarity. It also softens a harsh tone.

The use of "may" is more tricky because it tends to have a legal stance. I try to avoid it but would use "might" here.

Those who don't have a good handle of itcan reat easy that everyone is responsible for their own language skilss.
