He's right that the long view is the one to take. Climate hawks would similarly balk if someone looked at the cool temperatures we have in New York today and argue that means global warming isn't a problem. But even taking the long view, the trends are towards less and less ice at the poles.

So what does this mean?

Unfortunately, less ice means more melting. As the sun hits the darker sea water and meltwater, less light is reflected away from Earth and is instead absorbed, heating those waters, which in turn melts more ice. It is a dangerous feedback loop.

Because of sea ice melt, business is capitalizing on the new Arctic shipping routes.
