The commander of the largest expedition in the Arctic warns of “the beginning of the explosion of an irreversible disaster”!

A German scientist who led the largest expedition to the Arctic to date has warned that we may reach an irreversible “tipping point” of global warming as summer sea ice continues to recede.

The warning was issued on Tuesday when scientist Marcus Rex presented the first results from the 389-day expedition that ended in October, which saw 300 scientists from 20 countries collect evidence of the impact of climate change in the Arctic Ocean.

“The disappearance of summer sea ice in the Arctic is one of the first landmines in this minefield, and it’s one of the tipping points we first started when we pushed warming too far,” Rex said at a press conference in Berlin.

And if the world is already past a point of no return, Rex fears this could have a “domino effect” for the rest of the planet, as the disappearance of sea ice is the “center of global warming”.

Along with Rex, sea-ice physicist Stephanie Arendt has issued dire predictions that “we may be the last generation to experience the Arctic that still has sea ice cover in summer”.

The Arctic expedition looked at the region’s atmosphere, oceans, sea ice and ecosystems, with four monitoring sites set up to collect 150 terabytes of data and over 1,000 ice samples.

The alarming findings come days after the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) met in England to agree to implement tougher measures to combat climate change, including moving away from coal plants and limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

In an effort to achieve these goals, G7 members have pledged to stop funding new coal power projects in developing countries, and instead give up to $2.8 billion to encourage them to move away from the use of this type of fuel.
