Experts say they are "stunned" by the loss of ice, with an area almost twice as big as the UK disappearing in the last week alone.

This news needs to be spread far and wide, and all of us must do our part to turn this dire situation around.

That's so true but I must admit to feeling being a bit hopeless about it right now - they predict all of the summer ice will be gone by 2030 and with the rise of industry in China and India as well as the refusal of the USA to sign any Kyoto type agreement we have to wonder how this will be achieved. Still I guess the Berlin wall did eventually come down so there's always hope..

I believe that humanity as a whole has been betrayed by its leaders, special business interests and can not longer escape the consequences of this betrayal.
My heart goes out to those who had no role in creating this catastrophe and I too hope we can mitigate their suffering.

As a life-long environmental activist I find it disheartening that rather than improving, I'm seeing, in my lifetime, evidence that we may well be destroying our planet, or at least changing it irreparably. It makes me regret not having followed through on my original plan to go into politics after college, to shake things up. Maybe one voice isn't enough, but clearly voices are needed! The US government should be ashamed of itself, as I am, that it has let so many opportunities slide to improve matters. Indeed, it seems to be going out of its way to make a bad situation worse.

Dear friends, there is nothing new about this!
The problem is people don't no history!
Both the Northwest Passage, across the top of Canada, and the Northeast Passage, Russia, were fully navigable during the 17th century.
Portuguese captains,working for Holland, during the time Portugal was occupied by the Spanish Empire, used them to connect Holland to Japan.
As far as I'm aware there weren't any airplanes or SUV's back then...
