Sea ice – loss rate increasing again this month

By Gavin, 7th September 2007

Further to my last summary on the lowest ever sea ice measurement, things are not getting any better;

Sea Ice decline

“Compared to conditions cited in our last entry, we have lost an additional 360,000 square kilometers (138,000 square miles) of ice, an area larger than the size of the state of New Mexico. We noted in our last entry that the daily rate of ice loss was starting to slow; the loss rate has increased again, as Figure 2 shows.” (emphasis mine)

These images and graphs should be part of the weather forecast every day on every TV and Radio channel.
