Arctic Ice Cap melts 30 years ahead of IPCC Predictions. According to this report, the actual melting of sea ice is frighteningly fast. Just to give you the heads up: Summer ice in the Arctic may be a thing of the past in 13 years.

13 years... 13 years... ago was 1994. I went to visit my sister in Alaska in the summer of 1994. We went to the Kenai Fjords and watched the glaciers calve. I can still remember the sound (well after the chunk of ice had crashed into the sea) of glaciers splashing into the water, then rattling inside my ribcage. ...Ominous.
