MIT researchers claim UN Arctic predictions are inaccurate | The Castlegar Source http://castlegarsource.com/news/mit-researchers-claim-un-arctic-predictions-are-inaccurate-13056
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had released its most recent report in 2007. It forecasts that the Arctic Ocean will have an ice-free summer by the year 2100. However, that finding has been contradicted by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). They say the Arctic summer will be ice-free several decades earlier, within many people’s lifetimes.
For some reason, I’m guessing the little coverage this does get will be more focused on *that* the IPCC was off, not *how* or *why*.
As per Science, this new data will be integrated into future models.
