The International Business Times reports:
In 45 years, the Arctic may lose its icy touch. According to a new study, researchers predict the North Pole may be ice-free for several months starting in the year 2054.
Using a computer simulation tool and measurements surrounding sea ice conditions, American and Chinese researchers estimate that the region will be ice-free between the years 2054 to 2058. Scientists defined “ice-free” as a period of time that usually takes place in September when ice is prone to melt after the region experiences heat brought on by summer, Phys.org reports.
