    Average June ice extent was the lowest in the satellite data record, from 1979 to 2010. Arctic air temperatures were higher than normal, and Arctic sea ice continued to decline at a fast pace. June saw the return of the Arctic dipole anomaly, an atmospheric pressure pattern that contributed to the record sea ice loss in 2007.

    You seriously want us to consider 31 years of data as significant?

    The Arctic Ice is thinner than it has been in recorded history. The Antarctic Sea Ice is about the same as far as thickness goes, but is more extentsive every winter, but melts back to norm in the summer. What is significant is that the continental ice cap in antarctica is losing ice by the giga-ton, at an accelerating rate.

    Where'd it go?

    Did it melt?

    Which Pacific atolls are now underwater as a direct result?
