After a spectacularly low amount of ice early in the Arctic season, the ice has returned to be the second best year of the past 18 years. Assuming you like lots of ice.
The Arctic was very news worthy early in the season as the trend was shaping up to be an all time low, but unfortunately (for the alarmists) all is well.
Is it good news for the polar bears? Not really as it turns out less ice is better for Polar Bears – but don’t tell Greta that.
It is pretty cold up North at the moment so it appears the ice extent may even surpass the 2014 extent.
