Arctic sea ice ‘to disappear for first time in 100,000 years’
The Arctic is on track to be free of sea ice this year or next for the first time in more than 100,000 years, a leading scientist has claimed. .. Professor Jennifer Francis, of Rutgers University in New Jersey, US, who has studied the effect of the Arctic on the weather in the rest of the northern hemisphere, was also sceptical about Professor Wadhams’s prediction, saying it was “highly unlikely” to come true this year.
