    It looks like we are headed for another very low ice cover in the Arctic this summer.

    Arctic Sea Ice News & Analysis
    Conditions in context

    Although the 2009 melt season started slowly, the pace of ice loss quickened through May. During May, the Arctic Ocean lost 1.67 million square kilometers (645,000 square miles) of ice, an average decline of 54,000 square kilometers (21,000 square miles) per day. This is similar to the rate of decline observed last year. For comparison, the long-term average (1979-2000) rate of decline for May is 47,000 kilometers per day (18,000 square miles per day). By the end of May 2009, ice extent was 84,000 square kilometers (32,000 square miles) higher than extent at the end of May 2007.

    Arctic and Antarctic sea ice hit record low in January: UN
    Saturday 18th February, 2017 - The extent of sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic last month was the lowest on record for January, the UN World Meteorological Organization said on Friday, while concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere hit a January record.

    2017 ushers in record low extent
    February 7, 2017


    Record low daily Arctic ice extents continued through most of January 2017, a pattern that started last October. Extent during late January remained low in the Kara, Barents and Bering Seas. Southern Hemisphere extent also tracked at record low levels for January; globally, sea ice cover remains at record low levels.
    ..................................................................................................
    Extent is tracking at records low levels in the Southern Hemisphere, where it is currently summer. As shown in this plot for February 5, this is primarily due to low ice extent within the Amundsen Sea, where only a few scattered patches of ice remain. By contrast, extent in the Weddell Sea is now only slightly below average. This pattern is consistent with persistent above average air temperatures off western Antarctica.

    Record low ice at both poles. Three extreme warmups in the Arctic this winter. Yet our 'Conservatives' are still claiming that nothing is happening.

    Clearly your graph is just more fake news....it clearly states that there was much more ice in 2006 and yet, the sat photos don't show anything like that...all this fake news and fake graphs...and fake science is coming back to bite you all in the ass...and I, for one am going to enjoy watching it.

    Already did...clearly the ice in Feb 2017 is very close to the ice in 2006...your graph and you are clearly liars...

    What is the source of your two images? What does your source claim to have been the ice extent for those periods? NSIDC showed 2006 to have been an exceptionally low extent year.

    However

    September 2006 extent: 5.95 million km^2
    September 2016 extent: 4.72 million km^2, down 21% in one decade.
