The plot is from US National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and shows the Arctic sea ice extent data for the melt seasons of 2007 and 2012 alongside the 1979-1999 average. 2007 was a record low year, but with about three weeks of melt season left it looks likely that 2012 will set a new and decisive record low. While individual years have a small degree of variation, overall the long term trend is quite markedly downwards.
There is a design and principle on which to earth functions.
The world needs to review its knowledge base, its functioning, in terms of energy to matter ratio that earth strives to maintain. Unless we awaken to understand the energy cycle in which we live and how earth is designed to sustain certain ratio of energy to matter, we are doomed for huge destruction. The increasing heat in the environment is creating disorder. Time earth gets to convert heat into biological mass is critically reduced. Consequently disorder is peaking stressing every ecological system and life in it. Noble Laureate James Lovelock has predicted destruction through increasing heat. We need to quickly evolve in our understanding of nature to survive on earth. Some organization or institution and the media should take up to awaken the world – read a small article and awaken and call the world’s attention – “Critical Thinking on Global Warming and Increasing Climate Catastrophes” by John Paily http://www.scribd.com/doc/101836445

NSIDC’s calculations are echoed by those of other agencies, of which the most important is perhaps the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
