Arctic free of ice in summer

The Arctic region is the most sensitive to global warming – its temperature is rising two times faster than elsewhere in the world. The "Ice cap" of the Earth is melting rapidly, and by the middle of the XXI century, water expanses of the Arctic are almost free of ice in summer. This certainly opens up exciting prospects for military and commercial fleets. Light yachts, sailboats and even surfers are also actively exploring these  newly-accessible areas for recreation.

Jensen Ellard Let's hope there's still time. Climate scientists recently accelerated their warming predictions and stated things are worse than they thought. This lead to the "only 10 years to turn things around" and gave a new urgency to climate legislation. Those scientists could easily say in the next years "we didn't account for xyz. It's too late to stop runaway greenhouse effect even if we stopped all fossil fuel use today." I believe we're already in that boat and some reversal technologies will be required whether it is giant soace reflectors or cloud seeding, etc. 31 Mar 2019
Alex Wolf There's enough time to avoid such a situation. If we reverse or at least halt global warming 'now' (ie up to 2030s), this is a reversible situation. I personally wouldn't like to see this scenario materialising though I do believe is something we can avoid. With the reduction of fossil fuel and other measures it is within reach. 06 Feb 2019
Rohan Its going to take more than a 100 years for the artic ice to melt 06 Feb 2019
Sam There is still time to stop this. If *certain people* would stop erasing laws and rules put into effect to prevent this in the United States, and lost the ignorance of artificial global warming, than maybe people would understand the global warning. 06 Feb 2019
Oscar Y Maruxi do to the global warming the arctic would melt but due to to the frigid tempatures there would still be ice with the sun getting hotter and hotter in the summer there would be no ice 06 Feb 2019
