It is estimated that 197 billion tons was lost in July, raising sea levels by 0.5mm. Scientists warn of a "self-reinforcing vicious cycle. Melting snow and ice darken the ice sheet’s surface, enabling it to absorb more heat and melt at a higher rate." See here.

There is some positive news though. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup weedkiller has been banned in a number of countries, with others restricting its use. See here.

How many radians are in an ice sheet?
