A recent study has shown that Arctic Sea ice could disappear entirely by the summer of 2045.[4] Less than 30 years away, this date is far sooner than other models have predicted, which places our planet in dire need of reform. The reason this date is closer than previously thought is because of a breakthrough in how CO2 and sea ice loss relate to each other.
For the first time ever, scientists have been able to calculate a simple linear relationship between a person’s carbon dioxide emissions and the amount of ice that is shrunk by the rising temperatures. The two scientists, one from Germany and the other from Colorado, discovered that every metric ton of CO2 released into the atmosphere yields a three square meter loss of summer Arctic Sea
