Our warming atmosphere and changing weather patterns have caused Arctic sea ice to melt at an alarming rate — 13.3% per decade— suggesting that the Arctic will be ice-free by 2030. Given that the Arctic acts as a global "air conditioner," an ice-free Arctic has serious ramifications for global weather and ocean circulation patterns. At Ice911, we believe it is critical that we act as quickly as possible to prevent further ice-loss, which is why we gradually scale our Arctic test every year.
