Speaking of depressing news...

People may have read recently that the annual summer ice cap recession
is already 20% lower than at any time ever recorded (and is still shrinking.)

I put together an animation built from a series of sea ice concentration images
from the National Snow and Ice Data Center and posted it here:

It's pretty remarkable how much ice coverage has disappeared north of the East
Siberian Sea.
