NASA satellites confirm the worst forecast: by September 2030 the ice in the Arctic will be gone

The Arctic Ocean may run out of ice during the months of September between 2030 and 2050. This is shown by a study carried out by satellites and scientists from NASA and ESA and published by the scientific journal ‘Nature’ this Tuesday.

The months of September see the lowest levels of ice in the Arctic, influenced by the higher temperatures marked during the summer. However, the area north of Greenland remains icy throughout the year.

A scenario that could change drastically according to scientists, who are convinced that ships could sail the seas in the coming decades, traversing areas that had not been explored until now.

Experts warn of this melting in the North Pole even in a scenario in which greenhouse gases are significantly reduced. They say that from 2030, the first month of September may come without any ice in the Arctic.

Furthermore, the melting process is accelerated by climate change until the Arctic ice disappears for a longer period around the year 2100. These data, generated by NASA and ESA and published by the journal Nature, confirm that the North Pole is melting faster and faster.

Climate change also affects Antarctica. A report by the ‘Copernicus Climate Change Service’ in February this year indicated that sea ice is below the minimum due to exceptionally warm temperatures experienced in early 2023.

“It is imperative that global and regional stakeholders act swiftly to reduce rising global temperatures,” said Samantha Burgess, deputy director of C3S (Copernicus Climate Change Service).
