North Pole without Ice

The increasing temperature in Arctic area, North Pole, causing ice melting progressively extended. For the first time in the history, the North pole will no ice in hot season this year.

This condition is predicted happen in North Pole because the melting area have extended too wide. David Barber, the researcher from Manitoba University just conducts an expedition in Canadian ice breaking ship, CCGS Amundsen.

Barber opinion supported by a direct perception and satellite image. Data show, most ice over there represent the young layer which have age less than one year. The layer formed as long as winter.

Young ice very brittle and have risk of melting on higher summer from endless ice formed since through years. Temperature increase also risk liquefy the thicker ice layer though there opportunity defense on summer this year.

This prediction is faster than the prediction last time, in the advertising model last time the Arctic ice predict just free from ice for the first time in the year of 2013 –- 2030. This means that the global warming affect come faster than the prediction. Ice melting is caused by combination of warm wave, dry wind and cosmic ray of sun. This destroy combination are not exactly come this year, but the effect already seen.

liquid area in fact immediately re-closed by ices layer because winter also come extrim. But, ice layer formed too flimsy so that risk break and melt.
