Arctic Sea Ice Loss - Amazing Video

One of the most amazing videos I have ever seen as it relates to Arctic ice loss. I was first shown this video last year at the Glen Gerberg Weather & Climate Summit. It was shown again this year and I thought it was time to share with viewers. Jennifer Francis (Rutgers University Research Professor of Arctic Climate Change) joined me for my live weather show from Breckenridge, CO to explain how and why this video is important.

To watch the video of Arctic ice loss in high quality, click here:

To quote the article from Climate Watch Magazine, "The loss of thick, melt-resistant, multi-year ice can easily become a self-reinforcing process. When multi-year ice melts away—or when young ice fails to survive any melt seasons—the ice that remains in the Arctic will be predisposed to melt quickly during the following summer."
