While most of our attention has of late been focused with good reason on the Trump regime’s efforts to dismantle the Great Society, New Deal, the Affordable Care Act, safety, health and environmental regulations, along with making the U.S. Show More Summary
Low levels of sea ice in the Arctic break another record, according to NASA.
Arctic sea ice reached its annual maximum extent on March 7, the lowest maximum in the 38-year satellite record, according to a new report by the National Snow and Ice Data Center. In other words, both winter and summer sea ice continue...Show More Summary
WASHINGTON (AP) — The frigid top of the Earth just set yet another record for low levels of sea ice in what scientists say is a signal of an overheating world.
The sea ice cover in the Arctic and Antarctic hit new record lows for this time of year, marking the smallest polar ice caps in the 38-year satellite record, US government scientists said Wednesday. In March, the Arctic ice sheet should...Show More Summary
Welcome to the new normal: For the third straight year, Arctic sea ice peaked at a record low level during the winter season, scientists said Wednesday. Arctic sea ice cover reached its annual peak extent on March 7, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) said, at 5.57 million square miles. Show More Summary
It’s missing an area the size of California and Texas combined.
After decades of moderate sea ice expansion, NASA is witnessing something it did not expect. Right now, the amount of sea ice in the Arctic is around as high is it will be all winter, but new records indicate this year's maximum is actually the lowest of any maximum on record. Show More Summary
Both of Earth’s poles are looking at record low sea ice extent levels, according to NASA and the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). Every year, sea ice in the Arctic grows and expands throughout the winter, but the region saw a record low wintertime maximum extent on March 7. Read: New...
Researchers say the sea ice sheets in the Arctic and Antarctic regions is the smallest in the 38-year satellite record.
Much of the ice also appears to be thinner than normal — further signs of climate change’s effects on the region.
At its 2017 winter maximum, the extent of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean covered just 14.49 million square kilometres (5.59 million square miles) on Feb. 22, almost the size of Russia

The extent of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean has set a new record low for the wintertime in a region strongly affected by long-term trends of global warming, U.S. and European scientists said on Wednesday. Sea ice around the North Pole expands…
Arctic sea ice appears to have reached on March 7 a record low wintertime maximum extent, according to scientists at NASA and the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder, Colorado. And on the opposite side...Show More Summary
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The Arctic sea ice maximum extent and Antarctic minimum extent are both record lows this year. Combined, sea ice numbers are at their lowest point since satellites began to continuously measure sea ice in 1979.
On March 7, 2017, the sea ice reached its wintertime extent and is officially the “lowest ever recorded by satellites at the end of summer in the Southern Hemisphere,” according to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
OSLO (Reuters) - The extent of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean has set a new record low for the wintertime in a region strongly affected by long-term trends of global warming, scientists said on Wednesday.
Extreme weather and climate conditions, including Arctic "heatwaves", are continuing this year, after 2016 topped the global temperature charts and saw shrinking sea ice and surging sea levels.
At least half of loss due to humans, but chance weather patterns piled on.
