On September 17, 2012 the extent of 30% concentration ice in the Arctic was 2.49 million km², and this year it was 4.09 km² on September 17. An increase of 64%. The past two years have been among the four highest of the past decade.
Experts say the Arctic has been ice free since 2013, or earlier – and that is is going to kill us all.
