Drone footage shows rapidly melting Arctic sea ice sheet

Drone footage shows the serious effects of climate change on ice sheets in the Barents Sea, Svalbard, Norway.

Arctic glaciers and the North Pole ice cap have retreated, in recent years, further than ever before with temperatures there rising faster than anywhere else on the planet.

The United Nations Environment Programme says global warming is almost certainly responsible for the decrease in extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice.
