Just last March, the Guardian was trying to panic us about record lows in Arctic sea ice during last winter.

Back in the real world, DMI confirm that average Arctic sea ice extent in December was higher last month than in 2006. In reality, there has been very little change at all since 2005.

Sea ice thickness is also very little changed since 2006:

And volume is also not decreasing either. (Note – 2003 is the first year of data from DMI)

But you won’t read any of this in the Guardian.
