Might the article been a bit premature? The following AMSR_E sea ice extent chart indicates that the Arctic sea ice is yo-yoing at the end of the melt season. One reason the ice season is prone to yo-yoing effects is that the Arctic makes up less than 10% of Earth's total surface. Major warm or cold systems, pushing into or out of the Arctic, at any time of the year, can shift the AVERAGE conditions of the 18 million square mile Arctic region, thus affecting total Arctic sea ice conditions. & so it is presently.
