Newest forecast based on new models predict the arctic sea ice to completely vanish in summers by 2013. In contrast to predictions between 2050 and 2100 from previous forecasts. These new results were based on data up to 2004 – not including the new record lows from 2005 and 2007. So if the models are correct, 2013 might be even a conservative forecast.
