North Pole Freezes (With Video)

So here is time lapse video of the North Pole freezing.

NASA’s Goddard Space Center has released a fascinating time lapse video of Earth’s North Pole turning into a popsicle from orbit. So much for global warming:

Sea ice coverage over the Arctic Ocean oscillates over the course of a year, growing through winter and reaching a maximum extent by February or March. This year, Arctic sea ice grew to levels beyond those measured in recent years but slightly below average when compared to the 30-year satellite record.

The video goes from September 1, 2009—minimun Artic ice levels—to March 30, 2010—the day before the maximum 2010 levels. [NASA]
