According to NASA, the ice melting season won’t be that alarming this year. Last year was unkind to icebergs of Arctic oceans; because of high rise the increase in ice melting, shrank the ice cap over the Arctic Ocean to a record low.
The Agency believes that this year's melting season will not be that harsh, but NASA’s scientists do assert that the long-term trend is running strongly downward.
Statistics of this year shows an unremitting decline in ice melting of the Arctic ice cap; this has been monitored by NASA for several decades.
In mid 80's the Arctic’s ice cap was more like the size of lower 48 states. This ice cap has lost half its size, now the scientists are pointing towards a terrible future saying, we might see an ice-free Arctic in 30 to 50 years.
