Arctic explorer's climate fears

Pen Hadow says Arctic likely to lose all its summer time ice cover in just 20 years.

    Island nations at the climate talks in Copenhagen have raised concerns about rising sea levels caused by melting ice sheets and glaciers.

    Peter Hadow, an Arctic explorer who has just got back from a three-month scientific expedition in the region, says the islands are right to be worried.

    Hadow says the Arctic is likely to lose all its summer time ice cover in just 20 years - if global temperatures continue to rise.
