That almost monotonically decreasing crude thickness result (with 2008 out of line only by one position) is even more scary than the end of season extent figures. We have lost 20% of the ice thickness in 5 years, while end of May extent hasn't changed heaps.

I wouldn't put too much reliance on the "Inuit diet made cancer and coronary diseases practically non-existent" claim. With a life expectancy after age 4 of about 45, lots of deaths due to "accidents", and negligible medical resources for diagnosis the claim has a very poor data basis. No tooth decay, yes. But how often did people with chronic conditions die due to accidents/exhaustion in bad weather? It is very sad that the poles are the recipients of the mercury emitted by our power stations, and of other vaporised substances such as DDT.
