Arctic ice at third smallest area on record

Polar bears are a threatened species due to a loss of their sea ice habitat. As more ice melts, they are drowning because they are unable to swim the great distances between ice floes and land.

The melting along the edges of the ice sheets is accelerating, causing a cycle of further ice melting. The more the ice melts, the more water surrounds and eats away at the remaining ice.

New satellite information show that ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are shrinking faster than scientists originally thought.
