Sea Ice in Northern Ocean Goes Psychadelic

I don't know what it means but here is the false color version of the satellite images of the Northern Ocean over at the Cryosphere Today yesterday. Groovy!

Actually, the trend is good in some areas, like the Arctic Basin, and bad in others, like the Beaufort Sea. We're still way above the extent of the sea ice melt last year at this time. The Warmies made a big deal about the North-West Passage between the islands of the Canadian Archipelago being open sea last summer. They said, falsely, this was the first time ever the passage had been navigable. Ha!

Well, this year, the passage is blocked by plenty of sea ice and that ice has actually increased in area in the past three weeks. So not actually global warming.
