Half a degree could result in ice-free Arctic

A range of less than one degree Fahrenheit, or half a degree Celsius, of climate warming over the next century, could be proven crucial for Arctic as it increases the probability of future ice-free summers in the Arctic, a research by the University of Colorado shows. The research also noted that if warming stays at 1.5 degrees Celsius, the possibility of ice-free summers would drop by 70%.
