The global warming leads to the development of global shipping in the Arctic region.
Why lessen CO2 emissions when more ice can be made in the Arctic instead?
Scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center said that Arctic sea ice dipped for a short time in mid-November by around 50,000 sq km.
The bad news is that the polar bear numbers could drop by more than 30 percent in the mid-century.
Scientists are still struggling in understanding the melting sea ice of the north and the freezing ice in the south.
Melting sea ice significantly increases Arctic precipitation, which is a major threat to climate change
By the 2050s, there will be a lot less ice and a lot more water in the Arctic Ocean. Scientists have found that the area will see at least 60 days a year of open water at this time period.
NASA has found that the sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began recording.
The 2015 Antarctic maximum sea ice extent has broken its streak of record highs. The sea ice cover of the Southern Ocean reached its yearly maximum extent on Oct. 6.
