You may remember an article posted here earlier this summer, predicting that the North Pole might be ice free this summer. Well, the melt season in the Arctic is over for 2008, and this prediction (like many made by the climate alarmism camp) did not come true. In fact, there is 9% more Arctic sea ice that there was at this point last year. Arctic Sea Ice Melt Season Officially Over; ice up over 9% from last year Watts Up With That? It would seem CO2 warming isn't quite as "relentless" as some folks might like you to believe.
