I leave the science bias to some of my colleagues here who are so much more expert than I am. However, I see that the BBC are still droning on about the Arctic Ice.
Sea ice cover in the Arctic in 2011 has passed its annual minimum, reaching the second-lowest level since satellite records began, US scientists say. The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) says the minimum, reached on 9 September, was 4.33 million sq km. That value is 36% lower than the average minimum for 1979-2000.
