New Data on Arctic Sea Ice Volume

PIOMASS has new data on Arctic sea ice volume:

(The gray bands are one- and two-standard deviations.) They don't give actual numbers, so it's difficult to tell how this point in time compares to last year. But overall the data is clearly nothing to cheer about, especially the change in the trend that occurred around 2001. (That is to say, the melting is accelerating.)

Of course, Congress has already decided there is no warming taking place, so just move along, OK?
