Harrowing news from NASA as they release this: Arctic Sea ice declined to the second-lowest extent on record. Satellite data from NASA and the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado in Boulder showed that the summertime sea ice cover narrowly avoided a new record low.
Scientists have watched it unfold for three decades.. and now, a new low for the ice..
Joey Comiso, senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md, said “The sea ice is not only declining, the pace of the decline is becoming more drastic. The older, thicker ice is declining faster than the rest, making for a more vulnerable perennial ice cover.”
