Arctic ice melting faster than ever

The good news: The Arctic may not be a frozen wasteland year-round in the near future.

The bad news: That's because Arctic ice will start melting every summer, if trends continue. This year has seen the greatest melting of Arctic ice in history. In fact, every year from 2006-2012 has had below-average ice presence through the summer months.

Soon enough, ice will melt entirely from the Arctic in late August and early September. Then it'll disappear earlier and earlier every year.
