The second graph is interesting:... so, the CAA is the only thing holding on?

I wouldn't want to see that type of trend repeat itself too many times.... :OMG

Pretty much all the thick, multiyear ice that was north of Greenland and the CAA has moved south through the CAA and melted/will melt next NH summer—the thick ridged ice that was in the CAA waters disappeared letting the Arctic sea ice move south.

Only thin ice is left in the Arctic.

Thin ice can get blown about by wind or sea currents

I think you skipped a few steps in your logic...

Read the other day how using that route is becoming common, this year there was no ice of any significance only small thin sheets which a normal ship can easily push aside and breakup. The icebreakers they used over the last few years to keep it open, were only needed at the end of winter and the ice has not returned yet.

Also read the arctic is up to 15degC above average temps, some places in Siberia recorded temps in the high 30's for the first time in their history and all the rail lines, building and infrastructure is collapsing as the permafrost thaws. They also have to put up with methane being released from the permafrost and boiling out of marshes everywhere, as well as the ground suddenly exploding by thawing permafrost and it's interaction of all the stored chemicals and gases, creating underground bombs waiting to go off.

Ice age here we come. :rofl

Not quite normal ships. Semi ice breakers almost. But, yup, the Arctic is becoming just another shipping lane.

Are you sure you're talking about nares strait?

It is part of the CAA, some of the old, thick ice that was in the Arctic Ocean must be stuck there and will be until the next melt event. Look it up on Google Maps.

Nope, made a mistake there. Was thinking of the east west northern arctic passage, which has a strait they mention often, sorry about that jumped the gun and assumed that was it.
