Watch an Arctic Cyclone Melt Ice over the period of a month.
Longer melting and seasons and shorter freezing seasons are causing record low levels in the presence of Arctic Ice.
According to the National snow and Ice Data Center there are 1.32 million square miles, which is about half of what has been normal between 1979 and 2010. While we see declining numbers the last record low, was 1.61 million square miles in 2007. That’s almost 20% in five years, as melting speeds.
Some models have put the melting of all ice by 2050, but so far all models are being surpassed. Aggressive estimates say that this may happen by the year 2030 or before.
NBC found a positive in the mix. Melting ice may open up shipping lines. Thank you NBC! Maybe Arctic ice melt will provide the boost our economy needs………. Let’s change the paradigm!!
