A variety of topics ranging from local events to climate change.
Arctic ice has been declining at a rapid rate and there is the possibility that the September minimum may be the lowest on record, covering less area than the previous record minimum in 2012. The attached images, provided by the National Snow and Ice Data Center, show the coverage of ice in early August, while the graph indicates the change in average area covered during July from 1979 to 2019.
