North Polar Sea Ice Shrinks

NASA has released a very demonstrative photo of the sea ice coverage at the north pole. The photo shows this summer's ice to have shrunk to a new low. This is released right on the heels of Al Gore being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, along with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, for his work in raising awareness of the reality of global warming. I think I can see a navigable northwest passage in that photo.
