CNN reports that ice levels at the North Pole have shrunk to their second lowest level ever, and experts say there could be worse to come. Every year the arctic ice shrinks in the spring and summer, before refreezing in winter. The severe melt in 2016 has worried scientists.
In September 2012, the ice level fell to just 1.31 million square miles, the lowest sea ice extent recorded.According to a new report arctic ice levels fell to about 1.6 million square miles in September of this year.
