Arctic sea ice

Arctic sea ice has already melted to a record low this year. And summer's not over yet. Ice is thinning at a rate 50 per cent faster than scientists predicted, mainly because of global warming, and summer Arctic ice could soon disappear altogether. But companies largely responsible for the climate disaster are scrambling to get as much profit from the situation as they can. But the more we stall, the worse it will get.
I cried when I saw a polar bear struggling to find a patch of ice to hunt seal on -- this year the ice is forming three weeks later than it should be because of global warming; you could tell the bear was hungry and confused by the fact his natural habitat was dissolving around him.
