A Human First: The Arctic Island

September 4, 2008

As we head towards the lowest volume of Arctic sea ice in around 14 days time, the Arctic is now completely cut of from land.

‘The North Pole has become an island for the first time in human history as climate change has made it possible to circumnavigate the Arctic ice cap.’

‘Prof Mark Serreze, a sea ice specialist at the National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC) in the US said the images suggested the Arctic may have entered a “death spiral” caused by global warming.’

From the Daily Telegraph.
