Confusing wordingEdit

"The ice that was present in 1912 gradually decreased by 85% by 2000, and another 26% by 2007." Does this mean that 26% of the ice that was present in 2000 was gone by 2007? The wording is unclear. It sounds like a total decrease of 111%, but obviously that is impossible. 131.216.100.12 (talk) 02:14, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes, i think that's what it means - although you're right, the current wording is confusing. I'll see if I can come up with a clearer phrasing. Tempodivalse [talk] 02:16, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
