Meltic of Arctic to pause..... then resume.....?????

Scientists says that level of Arctic sea ice would decrease rapidly and will eventually disappear during summer if climate change continues.

But in an unexpected new result, the NCAR research team found that Arctic ice under current climate conditions is as likely to expand as it is to contract for periods of up to about a decade.

So, temporary halt to the loss of the ice!!!

At longer time scales, 50 or 60 years, there’s no escaping the loss of ice in the summer.....

The study appears this week in Geophysical Research Letters.
