George Monbiot, Guardian, January 1, It was the year of living dangerously. With the melt happening at an unprecedented rate of more thansq km a day, and at least a week of further melt expected before ice begins to reform ahead of the northern winter, satellites are expected to confirm the record — currently set in — within days.

As the summer melt season ends, the Arctic Ocean will be covered with 45 percent less ice than the average from to Alarming developments Over the last year alone, the Greenland ice sheet polards virtually vanished. The image kickstarted the global green movement. Arctic sea ice coverage shrank to a record low 4. As the northern summer draws to a close, two milestones have been reached in the Arctic Ocean — record-low sea ice extent, and an even more dramatic new low in Arctic sea ice volume.
As record sea ice melt scarcely makes the news while the third runway grabs headlines, is there a form of reactive denial at work? But as the polar flag becomes ever more tattered, with holes scorched by hotter ocean waters, humanity pumps ever more globe-warming gases into the air.
But you could be forgiven for missing it, as it scarcely made the news at all. Common Dreams staff, October 6, DireitosEcologiaEconomiaMundo Tagged: Esse site utiliza cookies. This July was the hottest July in the US ever since they started keeping records. Elizabeth Rosenthal, O Estado de S.

Today, that record is smashed and the shredded white flag is now flickering rathering than flashing. Satellite images show that the degflo summer melt has reduced the area of frozen sea to less than 3. But the danger is greater than even, even if the alarm signal is frayed.
It revealed a planet of awesome beauty, deep blue oceans czlotas, verdant continents and crowned with at least 8m square kilometres of gleaming ice. With Arctic Sea ice at record low because of climate change, polar bears have been deprived of a key habitat and feeding ground. Long-delayed monsoon rains in India resulted in the second drought in four years. US and Russian groups unite to lobby governments after concerns over rise in poaching and melting Arctic ice Miriam Elder, guardian.
Legal trade in polar bears, mainly in the form of trophy skins and furs, remains legal under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species Citesleading to the death of hundreds more each year. Arctic Sea ice levels continue to drop below record set on Aug.
Arctic sea ice cover has been shrinking since the s when it averaged around 8m sq km a year, but such a dramatic collapse in ice cover in one year is highly unusual. The figure has not only beaten the previous record, established in The company has been granted permission to begin preparation work at exploratory drilling sites in the Deglo.
This is not like war or plague or a stockmarket crash. The company also is authorised to drill narrow pilot holes, which reveal obstructions or gas pockets, down another 1,ft.
Bird and insect numbers continued to plummet, coral reefs retreated, marine life dwindled. There are no comparisons to be made.
Iconic remnants of the global megafauna — such as rhinos and bluefin tuna — were shoved violently towards extinction 2. Rate of summer ice melt smashes two previous record lows and prompts warnings of accelerated climate change John Vidal and Adam Vaughan, guardian.
The speed of the Arctic ice melt is astounding, scientists say. And of course Thailand itself was a water world for over a month last year due to floods. It reveals that global climate breakdown is proceeding more rapidly than most climate scientists expected.
