North Pole ice free this summer?

(shamelessly ripped mailout from my organisation)
“The pace of climate impacts, in the marine environment, has stepped up dramatically this month. The huge loss of sea ice last summer hasn’t been replaced with thick enough ice this winter. As a result, it is now predicted that it is possible that the North Pole may be ice free this summer (NSIDC May 2008).”

I’m honestly quite scared by this news! This is way faster than anything I’d read had precdicted we’d be ice freen in the North Pole?! Yikes .. 😦
