Sea ice might not have hit a record low this year, but it's well on its way.
Ice at the North Pole hit the second lowest level ever on Saturday — about 1.6 million square miles. Scientists don't really understand it since the arctic summer wasn't that hot.
Tracking arctic sea ice started in the 1970s, and in 2012, those levels hit a record low at 1.31 million square miles.
