On the 14th, we set a record, as I reported earlier. But, that was surpassed on the 21st. Last year a record was set (for the modern satellite period) on the 22nd.
Some lunatics blather something about it being hotter as to why ice now forms near the south 60th parallel when it used to not. Clever people those super sciency lunatics, they are.
Graph is in million km2.
