Arctic Ice at Historic Minimum

- lead author Dr. Katharine Giles

A new study, conducted by academics from University College London, published in Geophysical Research Letters and reported by the BBC, shows that the total mass of Arctic ice has dropped to the lowest level ever recorded by satellite.

Instead of simply allowing polluters to pay for emissions – a short-term solution – society must make radical changes to move to a low carbon economy and cut reliance on fossil fuels.
