Sudden disappearance of Arctic Ice to have disastrous effect, scientist warns
MetadataShow full item record
The last of the Arctic’s summer sea ice will melt away completely within the next two years, a Cambridge University scientist predicts, leading to sea-level rise and an acceleration of global warming as the planet’s natural air-conditioning system weakens. “Next year or the year after that, I think [the Arctic] will be free of ice in summer, and by that I mean the central Arctic will be ice-free,” Peter Wadhams, professor of ocean physics at Cambridge University, told The Guardian in August. This will be the first time in 100,000 years the Arctic basin will be free of ice, the scientist said, and there will be dangerous regional and global effects.
