Earth Blows Away The Record For Sea Ice Gain In 2013

Real Science

The amount of thin, rotten, decayed, bald sea ice on Earth has increased by nearly 33,000 Manhattans since this date last year – almost doubling the previous record for annual ice gain.

Note that the amount of sea ice on Earth has increased during six of the last eight years.

NOAA says that these are the hottest years ever, and that the Arctic will soon be ice-free.
