No ice at the North Pole: On course to disappear entirely this year


www.independent.co.uk

It seems unthinkable, but for the first time in human history, ice is on course to disappear entirely from the North Pole this year.

The disappearance of the Arctic sea ice, making it possible to reach the Pole sailing in a boat through open water, would be one of the most dramatic – and worrying – examples of the impact of global warming on the planet. Scientists say the ice at 90 degrees north may well have melted away by the summer.

Let the global warming debate begin. Before we get all crazy let us remember that we could be able to mine it soon.



If it happens, it raises the prospect of the Arctic nations being able to exploit the valuable oil and mineral deposits below these a bed which have until now been impossible to extract because of the thick sea ice above.


[sarcasm]
Sounds like this ice thing is just a big problem in the way of extracting resources. It's not like we even need the ice anyways....

So... what's it all mean?

So the ice has melted and gone. It was bound to happen eventually.


The Earth will keep warming for a while yet, then it will freeze again like it's done throughout its history.
