Here is the most recent UAH satellite record of the global mean temperature anomaly from the 'normal' average 1979 to 2000. May was indeed colder in most of the World than usual. Wonder what the RSS results will be and what the Summer will be like?
Up in the Arctic Basin, the sea ice is at 3.90 million square kilometers, just a bit below the 1979-2000 'normal'. It will be interesting to see how low that goes as well. Last year was somewhat alarming as it dipped to 2.75. If it stays well above 3 million, recovery from last Summer will be pretty much complete.

It is sunspot activity that is driving "climate change", both the surge we saw in the late 90's and the dropping off of temperatures that we are currently experiencing.
Therefore, we should see a recovery of the Arctic sea ice this summer since sunspot activity is low.
Is that correct?
