35 years of climate change in 125 seconds

  • A new time-lapse video shows sea ice off the coast of Greenland is melting fast, with just 5% of the original mass remaining.
  • The oldest and thickest ice has been replaced by thinner ice, which melts more easily.
  • Researchers say climate change is to blame for continued loss.

Q: If you subtract 95% from something, what’s left?

A: An environmental crisis.

Researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recorded a significant decrease over time in both the extent of ice cover and its thickness. In the 1980s, average March sea ice was more than 15.5 million square kilometres, but in recent years the average is closer to 14 million square kilometres.
