Earth’s Thermal Shield, Arctic Ice, Drops to Record Lows in February 2014, reports Ryan Koronowski at Climate Progress, when temperatures warmed above normal, even in perpetual Arctic winter darkness. The Arctic has already warmed over 3.5°F since the 1970s, and federal scientists warned recently it could warm up to 23°F by 2100, likely ensuring the disappearance of Earth’s thermal shield during the entire arctic summer, when it is most needed. Total loss of summer Arctic ice is estimated to double global warming. Ready to act yet?
