The National Snow and Ice Data Center, which is supported by NASA, put out an alarming report a few weeks back.

The report stated that in 2008, the level of arctic sea ice was at its second lowest point in recorded history.

The arctic sea ice dropped to covering only 1.74 million square miles, which is only above the all-time low recorded in 2007.

The arctic sea ice in 2008 was only covering 9.4% more ground, not much.

NASA has supported this report, stating that the findings have been confirmed.

They also stated that not too long ago, the ice that users to cover 60% of the Arctic now only covers 30%.

This decline represents rapidly changing weather, and is quite alarming.
