Ice free North Pole Overhyped

I was corresponding with someone at the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Colorado about today's Independent story that the North Pole is going to be ice free this year.

He said the paper has overstated the story -- that there's the possibility of an ice free north pole around the end of the summer. But there's certainly the possibility that it won't happen this year.

The Independent does qualify their claim lower in the story, but if you just read the headline you'll be confused.
