Arctic sea ice has declined for the past 4 days at about 12,000 sq. km per day, this is the middle of the growth stage. Normal growth would be about 65,000/day at this time of year. I know I talk about this a lot, but that's inversely proportional to the media. I understand it's unlikely we will do anything about this, it's also likely that the world will be a very different place very soon. I think it is important to bear witness to important things, so I will.
Of course I am a part of this, I drive to work and use a computer and this is happening right now and just like the CO2 that will never be below 400 ppm again, this is not going back. We are entering a new weather pattern where the Arctic ice cap does not last the summer.
update: If you open the link and click on a line on the chart a graph from that date in time will pop up showing ice coverage compare those past years to this year and you will see how bad it is, and you can "grab" a piece and it will zoom.
