2008 Arctic sea ice extent — another record low?

Climate Change commented about this six weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Colorado researchers say there is a 3 in 5 chance that 2008 will have a new record low. Mr. Atmoz also has a post on this.

It is my non-quantified opinion that we’ve hit one of the first “tipping points” as far as global warming is concerned, or at least we will over the next few years – a commitment to seasonal loss of arctic sea ice regardless of what we do to CO2 emissions. We’ll be able to see by autumn if summer ice hit a new low, so stay tuned.

Their autumn, our spring. Stay tuned for the autumnal/spring equinox September 22, 2008.
