Actually,m it exactly what the are saying. The ice is breaking off the cap, and now floating in the sea. More ice breaking off than normal ( due to warming ) = more sea ice than normal.

It's not the sea ice. It's the Government causing the delay.
1. The oil-spill barge, the Arctic Challenger, has yet to be cleared by the Coast Guard for seaworthiness.
2. Shell cannot meet EPA limits on emissions of nitrogen oxides, particulates and on ammonia emissions for the Noble Discoverer drill ship and its associated support vessels, with currently available technology.
