The demise of Arctic ice

Paul Beckwith: “Sorry Folks. Arctic Sea-Ice On Last Legs”

Arctic Sea Ice has been pulverized, hacked to pieces, smashed to smithereens; you can use whatever phrase you want. 

With a week or two left in the 2016 melt season, and another storm in the long range forecast, all bets are off. 

I discuss extent, area, thickness, volume, surrounding sea and air temperature, trends and what it means to us, lower-latitude mortals. Not a pretty picture; expand extreme weather events around the globe to notch up in frequency, severity and duration.
