A recent article in the Financial Times reproduced on the internet recently by CNBC (http://www.cnbc.com/id/100912062), is predicated on the assumption that there has been a “record decline in Arctic sea ice”. However, the data on sea-ice extent only go back to 1979. And they show the Arctic sea ice declining but Antarctic sea ice increasing, so that the global decline in sea-ice extent is not very great.
