We feel like every few weeks we write another story about the Arctic sea ice reaching some new historic low.
But most researchers didn't expect it to keep getting worse.
It's literally almost fall and the ice is still receding.
In the video, the black represents what the ice levels usually are, and the white ice you can see represents what actually happened this summer.
New data says the ice crushed the record it just set of only 1.58M square miles. It's now down to the new record of 1.32M square miles of ice.
Check out the video (above) to see how much less that is than average.
