With Minnesota in the deep freeze from Arctic air – CBS Minnesota believes the Arctic is hot and sea ice is near a “record low”
Temperatures in Minnesota this month have been nearly 40 degrees colder than April 1942.
Great Lakes ice cover is nearly double the average since 1980, with four of the last six years above average.
Ships are stuck in Lake Superior ice.
Temperatures in the Arctic are still below -20C, and Arctic sea ice volume is normal and highest in the past four years.
There has been a massive expansion of thick Arctic sea ice over the past decade.
It takes a very special form of stupid to believe Arctic ice is melting, when temperatures have been continuously below freezing in the Arctic for the past seven months.
Normally Minnesota warms up substantially during March and April, but there has been no warming so far this spring. Perhaps the cold is affecting the brains of journalists.
