Arctic To Be Ice Free Before 2010

‘Frightening’ projection for Arctic melt

The Arctic Ocean could be free of ice in the summer as soon as 2010 or 2015 – something that hasn’t happened for more than a million years, according to a leading polar researcher.

According to these models, there will be no sea ice left in the summer in the Arctic Ocean somewhere between 2010 and 2015.  “And it’s probably going to happen even faster than that,” said Fortier, who leads an international team of researchers in the Arctic looking for clues to climate change.

    Fortier stressed that 90,000 square metres of sea ice melted in 2007, a spectacular figure that was expected to be seen in only 15 to 20 years.

    A spectacularly wrong figure! Doh!
