The “mainstream” (meaning government supporting and supported) media continue to report that manmade global warming is quickly melting the ice in the Arctic away to nothing.
But a careful analysis of satellite records seems to indicate that this year’s Arctic “melt season” is already over. Unless there is an unforeseen sudden rise in temperatures in the very near future, August 31 may have been the last day for Arctic ice to melt this year.
If so, 2018’s melt season is the shortest on record. Arctic ice (and North American snow cover generally) have been growing over the past several years.
