Wrong again. One more time. The definition of 'area of ice' is 15% COVERAGE, not 100%. You could have the area expand or shrink by almost 6 times with the same ACTUAL ice blocks. So a change of 60% is nothing to write home about. And the science has said already that the reason for the high 'minimum' this year is because winds were such as to distribute it around more widely.

Even then, it is below the 2000-2009 average. The trend towards ice free summers continues totally unabated. ...

Yes. It is a year to year variation caused mostly by distribution of ice, not the level of ice. But looking at the SIGNAL underneath the 'noise' you see a strong decline. Especially in actual ice volume or mass.

Since toxic topix AGW deniers repeat on several threads, so can I:

"Sea ice has NOT increased by 60%. Due to temporary Arctic colds, Arctic sea ice volume(a much better measure than extent) is presently 16% greater than the period 2010 to Current. Present September 1, 2013 sea ice VOLUME is ~5100 cubic kilometers,~10,000 cubic kilometers less than the 1980-89 period to September 1."

AGW is proceeding.
