Phil263 We don't seem to have reached the minimum yet. NSIDC show a continued downward drift.

A hypothesis to explain the increased storm activity in the North Atlantic this Winter. The jetstream is running much further South than normal across North America. As a result the air on the southern side of the jetstream is warmer than normal and the temperature gradient across the jetstream is larger than normal. This is energising the jetstream in the North Atlantic and generating the chain of energetic storms the UK has experienced in of late.

Spin-sceptic propoganda sites such as WUWT and McIntyre's can be a useful guide to the quality of new climate science papers. It is noticeable that the more significant the paper, the more hysterical their attempts to discredit it.
The current position of North Pole-40 is close to the minimum ice extent boundaries for both September 2007 and September 2012. If that area is already melting it raises the possibility that the 2012 minimum ice extent in that region might end up considerably closer to the pole.

3.8 +/- 0.25 Difficult to say how much of last year's minimum was due to the weather. I predicted 4.0 last year and was shown to be optimistic. Still an optimist, but expecting it to go through the floor after 2015.
In Northern Ireland they rarely talk about the outside world, except for the football. 5 feet of snow in Belfast before Easter had a fair few people asking what was happening. More of them are paying attention now.
