Have lost a volume equal to half of United States in terms of summer ice cover!  We may come to a point in our lifetimes when Arctic may not even have ice in summers – in this decade or next one at the latest!  Not just that but the ice there is also thinning.  The global impact of these changes on environment will be dramatic!
