A shocking new report claims that the sea ice in the Arctic could completely disappear until the end of September each year, when the average global temperature to increase by as much as 2 degrees Celsius, and climate change continue to worsen.

“It is most likely to be in September, Arctic sea ice will effectively disappear in about 2 to 2.5 [degrees] of warming,” he said in the abstract of the study, which was published in Nature Communications. “The limit of global warming of up to 1.5 [degrees] in the Paris agreement, it may not be sufficient to ensure that the ice-free north Pole.”

THE MELTING OF THE PERMAFROST IN THE ARCTIC WILL BE $70 BILLION IMPACT, NEW STUDY SAYS

September is typically the month that sees the least amount of ice in the Arctic, and is to be used as a measure because it is the “transition” between summer and winter, he said, Won Chang, a study co-author.

“The ice is declining, from June to September, and in September, it will begin to grow again in the seasonal cycle. And we’re saying we can’t have ice cream in September,” Chang said in a statement.

With the help of a new statistical method of the 21st century climate projections, Chang and other researchers have found that there are at least a 6 percent chance that the sea ice will disappear when the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius. That bumps up to a 28 per cent chance, as the temps rise by 2 degrees Celsius.

“Our work is to provide a statistical and a mathematical framework for the calculation of the impacts of climate change and the impact is most likely,” Jason Evans, one of the study’s co-authors, will be added to the list.

A lack of summer sea ice is of major importance for the Arctic animals such as polar bears and seals that depend on sea ice for food and raise their young.

It is also a source of contention between the politicians and climate activists. In May, the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, said the melting of the ice, presented “new opportunities in the market,” as well as the new naval roads are now open.

In June, diplomats, and climate experts have gathered in Germany for a U. N.-hosted talks on climate change, amid growing public pressure for the government to faster action against global warming.

In a study published in April showed that the Earth’s glaciers are melting faster than previously thought, loss of 369 billion tons of ice and snow each year, and more than one-half of which are in North America.

Scholars have largely dismissed the fears about man’s impact on global warming, saying that climate change has been around since the dawn of time. There are also the dangers of a warming planet, it is heavily exaggerated, and the question of the impact of fossil fuels on climate change.
