Wat dann nun (well which one is it then)? Satellite images show that “the Arctic ice crust is melting faster than expected“or
“stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7 million square kilometres more than 2 years ago.”
I know. It must be both.
The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’ Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.
PS: The Ozone Hole is also doing really poorly these days and will soon disappear completely. Ozone scientists are therefore justifiably worried about what to worry about next.
