Ice melting and emissions...

The US National Ice and Snow Data Center has reported that Arctic sea coverage has fallen to record lows this summer. The 2005 previous record low of 2.15 million square kilometers has been surpassed after melting rates in July. (here)
It is quite alarming to speak with people who shrug their shoulders and ask how the cutting of emissions is related to ice melting and global warming. It is all a shortcoming of our educational system K-12 when children did not get a basic course in Physics.
