Greening our Planet, our Industry, our Community and our Company – a goal we have to achieve


Published on

This is a presentation Ryan Martens presented at the Rockies Venture Club. The point of the talk was to encourage folks to get started on the curve toward greening and that strategic and tactical benefits would come as well as personal benefits. I left folks with the pointers, on the last slide, to a number of the sources that are helping us up the curve.

  3. 3. When will we lose Arctic Sea Ice? The summer rate of decline was Trends of September sea ice extent - MODELS and OBSERVATIONS >10% per decade; the rate since 1997 was ~20% per decade. But in 2007 alone, summer sea ice will drop ~25%. A linear extrapolation now puts the ‘zero sea ice’ date at ~2060; However, the decline is unlikely to be linear due to feedbacks, and a continuing increase in the greenhouse forcing; and - Models that track sea ice well for the past century show the possibility of a rapid (~15 year) collapse of sea ice once extent and thickness reach a certain level (summer extent of ~5 M km2) We are more or less at this level. source: Stroeve et al, 2007 GRL and NSIDC 2007 Sea Ice website 3
