A fascinating look at why the Arctic Sea Ice is so important.

I will watch that, but UI already understood how important keeping that area frozen is! Now we have melting tundra, pockets of gas exploding as they warm up, released gas, cold fronts further south than they used to be. Sadly, many seem to not grasp it once they hear about it.

Yes Len. It's imperative that we stop it happening damned quickly. The outlook is very dire if we don't.

For about 10years the seas have been absorbing the excess heat but now it is warming the polar regions and the consequences of that are very serious indeed.

It's the cause of the Big Freeze in the US and Canada and it's going to get worse too.

More Methane will escape though.
