Arctic ice melts to record low

The ice sea in the Arctic Ocean has melted to its lowest extent ever, according to new data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Colorado.

The extent of ice observed on Sunday broke a record set five years ago and will likely melt further with several weeks of summer still to come.  The alarming new figures show that the Arctic has already lost more ice than ever before in recorded history – and it’s still melting.
