Submission + - Arctic Sea Ice to reach record low this August (nsidc.org)

vikingpower writes: "Although it is known that the arctic sea ice melts away, partially, each summer, it will probably hit an all-time low before the end of this month. The previous records, from 2007 and 2005, occurred in september of those years. Data from the US National Snow and Ice Data Center show that the melting rate accelerated this august, whereas normally it slows down during this month. The graphs under the link tell an impressive story of diminishing surfaces. Ted Scambos, one of NSIDC's main researchers, clearly attributes this all-time low to human-induced climate change ( The interview is in Dutch, alas ), which is remarkable, coming from a US government-funded institute."
