Arctic, Antarctica sea ice sinks to record low this year

Arctic, Antarctica sea ice sinks to record low this year

This winter, a combination of warmer-than-average temperatures, winds unfavourable to ice expansion, and a series of storms halted sea ice growth in the Arctic, the scientists said.

While the year 2016 made history, with a record global temperature, exceptionally low sea ice, and unabated sea level rise and ocean heat, extreme weather and climate conditions have continued into 2017, pushing the world into "truly uncharted territory", said the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

According to estimates by climate scientists at the University of Reading in London, Antarctic has lost only 14 per cent summer sea ice since the early 1900s.

According to scientists, the Arctic is warming at nearly double the global rate as a result of climate change fuelled by mankind's burning of fossil fuels, a process that emits heat-trapping greenhouse gases.

The melt slowed down in June, but scientists say the rate of ice loss picked up again during the first two weeks of August, and is now greater than average for this time of the year.
