GR: Zero Arctic sea ice will have dramatic (no, dramatic isn’t strong enough) or should I say traumatic effects on weather. Learn more about what’s just around the corner with these educational videos by Paul Beckwith.
“There is a very high probability that the Arctic sea ice will essentially vanish by the end of summer melt in 2020 or earlier. The ice-free duration would likely be less than one-month in September for this first “blue-ocean” event.” –Paul Beckwith.

“There are more than five million cubic miles of ice on Earth, and some scientists say it would take more than 5,000 years to melt it all. If we continue adding carbon to the atmosphere, we’ll very likely create an ice-free planet, with an average temperature of perhaps 80 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the current 58” (Source: ngm.nationalgeographic.com).
