As unbelievable as it may sound, all the ice around the North Pole may melt this summer, independent.co.uk informs. In case this happens, the entire ice land may disappear, becoming open water to the Arctic Ocean. The disappearing of the ice at the North Pole would be a dramatic sign of the global warming effects. Scientists in the area say there are more than 50% chances for the ice to melt this year, since old ice has been replaced by ice formed in the past year. The independent.co.uk web site also presents a short film describing the evolution of the ice cap during the past years.
