The extent of sea ice in the Arctic appears to have reached its lowest point for 2013 – more than last year, but well below the long term average.

LONDON, 21 September – Scientists say the sea ice which covers much of the Arctic Ocean appears to have reached its minimum extent for this year.

The fate of the ice year by year is an important indicator of the impact of climate change on the Arctic, where average temperatures are rising twice as fast as elsewhere in the world.

Eleven days before the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change publishes its latest report, a group of eminent scientists says there is massive evidence of human responsibility.

LONDON, 16 September – With the IPCC report not yet published, there is already heated debate about what it will say, and about the implications of its findings for human development.

The scientists’ statement is unequivocal, and is not based on whatever the IPCC may publish. They say: “The body of evidence indicating that our civilisation has already caused significant global warming is overwhelming.”
