Measuring from the March 2007 peak to the March 2017 peak (which is the correct way to measure trends) Arctic sea ice extent has expanded about 60 Manhattans per year over the past decade.
Ice extent is close to “normal.”
Our top experts said the Arctic would be ice-free by 2008.
Others were more conservative and said the ice wouldn’t be gone until 2012.
Some were even more conservative and said the ice wouldn’t be gone until 2013.
Nobel laureate Al Gore was very, very conservative and said the ice wouldn’t be gone until 2014.
NASA’s top climate prophet said the Arctic might not be ice-free until 2018
He also said Lower Manhattan would be underwater by 2008.
Barack Hussein Obama’s science czar John Holdren, took the idiocy one step further, and predicted ice-free Arctic winters at the 18:54 mark of this CBC interview .
…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.
– John Holdren, 2009

Sea ice is not disappearing, but fake climate science soon will be. These people have no idea what they are talking about, and their funding needs to be cut off.
