Sea ice was down a bit for most of March but it has now popped back up to a level similar to that in other recent years. The graph tells all:
2016 is the black line
How awful for the Warmists. The Arctic is all they've got. I imagine they will console themselves by saying today is the 15th lowest or some such. You have to be creative with the truth to be a Warmist -- which mostly means taking refuge in trivialities
SOURCE for the graph
The following is amusing. It looks like the upswing began on 25th.
"Scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) said that the sea ice cover attained an average maximum extent of 14.52m sq km (5.607m sq miles) on 24 March, the lowest winter maximum since records began in 1979. The low beats a record set only last year of 14.54m sq km (5.612m sq miles), reached on 25 February 2015".
