Arctic Ice on the usual freeze-up


Nothing exciting here.  Last year, the Arctic was hit by a warm current coming up from the Pacific.  That same ocean current setting gave us a warm winter.  Now, it is important not to look at the absolute value, but the rate of ice volume increase.  It's doing quite well.  I actually expect it to take one of the steeper curves eventually, but that's quite uncertain.  The polar bears will be fine this year.

The Polar bears have been fine for many years now.
Despite the claims to the otherwise.
