Rate of Arctic Ice Melt Each Day Now Equals the Size of West Virginia

Arctic ice pack is melting at approximately 54,000 square kilometers a day as the world warms. Why haven’t we seen this headline? Possibly because when journalists check, it’s the average rate of summer melt as the ice decreases from winter maximum of 14 million square km2 in April toward a minimum of 4.5 million km2 in September. Few people know this much ice melts every summer, but they don’t know a similar amount of ice forms every winter.
