Arctic ice refuses to melt as ordered
As you can see, ice has grown in nearly every direction since last summer - with a large increase in the area north of
Siberia. Also note that the area around the Northwest Passage (west of Greenland) has seen a significant increase in ice. Some of the islands in the Canadian Archipelago are surrounded by more ice than they were during the summer of 1980.
