At Least 70% Human Made August 2, 2012 : 6:05 PM

A new study suggests the decline of sea ice in the Arctic is at least 70% caused by “human-induced climate change:”

“The radical decline in sea ice around the Arctic is at least 70% due to human-induced climate change, according to a new study, and may even be up to 95% down to humans – rather higher than scientists had previously thought.”

“The loss of ice around the Arctic has adverse effects on wildlife and also opens up new northern sea routes and opportunities to drill for oil and gas under the newly accessible sea bed.”
