FilAm scientist warns faster Arctic ice melt another sign of global warming

A group of top NASA scientists led by Josefino Comiso said in a recent report that sea ice in the Arctic region in the Winter has been shrinking at a faster rate in the last two years.

The alarming trend is another sign of global warming, says Comiso, is leading expert on climate change in the Arctic.

This week, Pinoy Pod talks to Comiso, a senior scientist in the cryospheric sciences branch of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

Comiso, who was born and educated in the Philippines, has warned that the amount of Arctic sea ice reduction recorded has not been seen in the 27 years satellite data has been available.
