Warm fronts push hard into the high Arctic NP, with temperatures that have been over temperature for 140 days. Presently, while International Falls, Minnesota is -41degF, the high Arctic above the 80th parallel averages 11defC(20 degF) over the normal. The warm fronts strongly push Arctic cold unto Canada & the U.S. AND why you have cold toes in Wisconsin. In 2009 Arctic sea ice quantity melted in January with temperatures 14degC over the average, while the warm fronts pushed Arctic cold south AND Maine set its all-time recorded low temperature of -50degF.
Update:

Arctic sea ice extent, 13,511,482 km2(January 28, 2014), again a consecutive day's, & even greater LOSS, Maryland-sized, due to wide spread Arctic warming & sweeping Arctic cold southward. Warm fronts push into the high Arctic, average temperature above the 80th parallel to -17degC., 12degC(22degF) over average, its highest for the last month, which has been well over average, anyhow. The warm fronts flush much Arctic cold south, MAGADAN, RUSSIA, at -41degC(-42degF) & to the U.S. The sun is 10 diameters north of its yearly most southern position.

Climate alarmism isn't about saving the planet.
It's about promoting the socialist agenda.

No wonder you deniers can't sleep at night and it's not worrying about what is happening to the planet. It's all those nightmares about socialists and living in boxes under agenda 21. Do you also visualise the stars & stripes being lowered and the UN flag raised?. Yeah I thought so!

Taken a leave of absence to recharge the batteries (recharged by fossil fuel of course) He/She was running on empty, had no new ideas so is probably busy doing research. Expect a post soon on the Ancient Mayan Sun Gods and how we should have been sacrificing virgins to appease their anger at us via climate change.

It's been the coldest winter since I've been alive. I'm only 25 but still I don't see much warming going on here. The earth has weather patterns that change every hundreds and thousands of years. It will be fine people we will never live to see anything happen anyways

I've heard the Great Lakes are the largest glacial lakes in the world.

Where did those glaciers go again?

Oh, that's right. They melted. Never mind.
