    The latest decline started around 2002, so it is Bush’s fault!

    Is it this western ice you think is more likely to stick around
    and become multi-year ice?

  3. Wow! Now i won’t feel guilty about putting an extra ice cube in my Martini.

    And the weekly ice coverage for this same area jump right up to normal with all the new ice that formed.

    Same with the Historical weekly coverage graph. Right close to normal.

  5. The take home message appears to be that wind patterns affect area and extent. Another break-through for Climate Science….*

    *But they don’t affect area and extent in the Arctic, which is impervious to changing wind patterns. in that region. In that part of the world only CO2 is melting sea ice. 🙂
