EU Referendum: "Shrinking ice" stops tanker

One does wonder about the National Snow & Ice Data Center, however, which is reporting that "Arctic sea ice continues to shrink", with ice extent "particularly low on the Atlantic side of the Arctic, most notably in the Barents and Kara Sea".

One really hates to think what the ice might have been like if there had been no global warming.

Flashback: Did we say that the Arctic might be ice free in winter sometime soon? We meant it might only be completely impassable eleven months per year by 2050

[John Holdren, Obama's clueless science czar] …if you lose the summer sea ice, there are phenomena that could lead you not so very long thereafter to lose the winter sea ice as well. And if you lose that sea ice year round, it’s going to mean drastic climatic change all over the hemisphere.
