Arctic sea ice volume is highest for the date in fifteen years.
June melt so far is the slowest on record, less than half of the average since 2003, and less than a third of 2012.
The interior of the Arctic is covered with 1.5-5 meter thick ice, generally thicker than it was 60 years ago and 80 years ago.
Climate scientists describe the record slow Arctic melt as “record fast” – because their funding depends on maintaining alarm about the climate.
