Warming reduces Arctic sea ice

“Reports from Norway say that the Gulf stream is very warm this year and that it is rapidly melting the ice out of the Arctic ocean. The climate of Norway is growing mild, and northern Russia is ice-free. The Arctic ocean is melted free of ice for 700 miles north of Norway, a thing hitherto unheard of.” The Chicago Tribune, November 4, 1922.
