PRESS CONFERENCE ON ARCTIC ICE OUTLOOK
Just heard that Climate Nexis is holding a Web Ex press conference right now. Bunnies are invited to join but let the press ask the questions
Most experts now predict that sea ice-free Arctic summers may occur as soon as 2030, a dramatic shift from the International Panel on Climate Change’s 2007 projection of an ice-free summer by 2100. Some say it could happen this decade.
