Today, it was confirmed that the Arctic sea ice area is farther below normal than ever before since record-keeping began. We are probably poised to say the same about the total global sea ice area (including the Antarctic). Meanwhile, those media who are saying anything are talking about a meaningless blip in Antarctic sea ice.
And, of course, there's the other litany of related news. Record temperatures for this date in parts of Greenland. September tied for the warmest global temperature since record-keeping began. That kind of thing.
Nothing to see here. This isn’t the human extinction event you aren’t looking for. You can move along.
