Studies Needed on Arctic Ice

Posted Fri, 22 Feb 2013 13:22:16 GMT by Dave Armstrong

We have no idea how long the Arctic ice will continue to decrease, as it did this year to a record low. Most important perhaps, we need to know the biological response to such extremes and the resultant environmental change.

Earth and nature help us out by continuing to soak up carbon emissions. Carbon sinks, such as oceans and forests are still soaking up half of the greenhouse gases produced by human activity.
