Arctic ice melting “alarming”: NASA

An unusually hot summer worldwide has led to an extreme rate of Arctic ice melt. Terming it alarming, NASA explained that the Greenland ice sheet is experiencing extreme levels of ice melt.

It added that 2019 will set a new record for Arctic ice loss, but the year is on track to be one of the top five in the 40-year satellite record.

According to NASA, since 1980, the Arctic has lost enough sea ice volume to equal all the water in Lake Superior, one of the largest lakes in the world.
