Massive Arctic Sea Ice Loss: 1979-2007 (Video)

A new animation from NASA shows that Arctic sea ice loss over the past 28 years has been enormous… with potentially devastating consequences for the larger global environment.

This animation compares the 2005 annual Arctic minimum sea ice from 09/21/2005 (shown in orange) with the 2007 minimum sea ice from 09/14/2007. The average minimum sea ice from 1979 through 2007 is shown in green.
