Could Arctic summers be sea ice-free in three years’ time? | Carbon Brief
Professor Mark Serreze from the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Colorado tells us he doesn't see the remainder of Arctic sea ice being lost so soon. He says:

"Seeing an essentially ice free Arctic Ocean in summer by 2016 is extremely unlikely. While we have certainly seen a rapid loss of summer ice in recent decades (compared to the late 1970s, we've lost about 40 per cent of the summer ice cover), losing the remainder over the next few years would be very hard to do."

“We’re probably far more interested in making sure the scientific message gets out to the public than we are in our personal publication records,” Mann said of the team of scientists that makes up the climate panel. “We’re all folks who are really focused on the bigger picture. Our own independent research efforts pale in comparison to the importance of the larger scientific conversation.”
