No mention in the press of the record cold at the North Pole, the large increase in Arctic ice extent over last year, or the record Antarctic ice extent.
Instead they made up a fake story about the North Pole melting and spread it all over the Internet.

Recently, concerns were raised over the supposed melting North Pole after webcam photos captured an ice-covered image in late April and a less-frosty, lake-looking photo in late July, in an article originally published by The Atlantic.
After Ferrell followed up with the North Pole Environmental Conservatory, he received an email reply stating that ‘”Given the excitement over recent images, we are putting the following write up with the images on our web site.”
The write-up clarifies that “The formation of melt ponds has always been a key feature of the summer season on sea ice.”
Additionally, they wrote, “…Melt ponds form every year, and considering Web Camera 1, the melt pond coverage at this location (the cameras and buoys have drifted to about 85°N, 5°W) looks pretty typical for this time of year and this location.”
BTW – the correct headline would read

Even the headline was an attempt to spread misinformation.
