This is a well-written article: "Vanishing Arctic ice is the planet's white flag of surrender" http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/damian-carrington-blog/2012/sep/14/arctic-sea-ice-climate-change

Have you seen this? http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/blog/2012/sep/13/less-arctic-sea-ice-satellites "Is there even less Arctic sea ice than the satellites show? Only 350 miles from the north pole, possibly 50% of the sea is covered in ice, yet data says there is ice cover at this latitude"

Artful Dodger: It looks like Healy is in Mediterranean Sea :)

Here is full text of another paper in Nature Geoscience: http://www.caymaninstitute.org.ky/pdf/carlson_nat_geo_2012_deglac-1.pdf Let me know, what you think...I havent read it yet, but abstract looks pretty dramatic...
This issue of Nature Geoscience has some very interesting articles, for example: http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/v5/n9/full/ngeo1574.html?WT.ec_id=NGEO-201209 http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/v5/n9/full/ngeo1528.html?WT.ec_id=NGEO-201209 Some citations: "Past transitions from glacial to interglacial climates have not been smooth. It would be wise to prepare for similarly sudden episodes of ice loss in future climate changes." "Post-glacial sea-level rise followed an uneven trajectory. Against a background of a gradually rising waters, several distinct meltwater pulses, presumably from sudden partial ice-sheet collapses, pushed sea level up tens of metres within a few centuries. Synthesizing work on the past two glacial terminations, Carlson and Winsor (607) argue that rapid disintegration events are a hallmark of ice sheets that reach the ocean, whereas ice sheets that terminate on land have melted more steadily as more solar radiation reached them."
Superman, i agree with you. I personally don´t understand, how anyone can predict Arctic ice will last 20 more years. I think current speed of melting suggests Arctic will be ice free in 5 years maximum. (sorry for my bad english)

It looks like for DMI melt season already ended: http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/icecover.uk.php
Toggle Commented Aug 30, 2012 on ASI 2012 update 10: (wh)at a loss at Arctic Sea Ice
So, if i see correctly, that means 132 500 km drop? That´s unbelievable..
Interesting video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPNKXGIyQlc "UD scientist sees Arctic ice loss firsthand"
So, if we continue to lose every day 95k one more month, we could be basically ice free by the end of the melt season...is it possible?
