Arctic Sea Ice Continues Decline We Just Hit the 2nd-Lowest Level

Well, it looks like our earth is not doing to great again, according to Nasa, our arctic ice levels have reached the second lowest point ever. The Ice cap grows each winter as the sun sets for several months, and then the ice melts in the summer time when the sun comes back up. But this year, the ice melted to fast, and it almost reached the record low that was set back in 2007. You see the yellow lines? that’s where the Ice Should be at right now.

Joey Comiso, senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., said the continued low minimum sea ice levels fits into the large-scale decline pattern that scientists have watched unfold over the past three decades.

The sea ice is not only declining, the pace of the decline is becoming more drastic,” Comiso said. “The older, thicker ice is declining faster than the rest, making for a more vulnerable perennial ice cover.

This is pretty bad news for everyone that likes to keep up with the climate, at this rate, we’ll have no ice in the poles in the upcoming decades. But right now, I’m in the middle of a desert and it’s 52 degrees out here… so it’s going to get cold again don’t stress about this to much. Yet…
