Arctic Ice In A "Death Spiral"

Well we didn't manage to beat last years record thaw in the Arctic, but this years melt was the second worst on record in the Arctic. A disturbing trend has been forming over the past few decades and it looks like things are only going to get worse. Remember all of this melting is just going to increase the Snowball Effects of Global Warming. The more ice that is melted the more heat is absorbed by the darker seas. Also methane and other greenhouse gases are released as the ice continues to melt...

What do you think of this latest report? Have we finally passed the tipping point of no return?
