Over the past eight days, Arctic sea ice melt has been the slowest on record. Antarctic sea ice extent is fifth highest on record for the date.
The extent of sea ice on earth today is higher than 1990, when the first IPCC report was released.
In 2009, experts said all of the multi-year Arctic sea ice was gone.
But there has been a significant expansion of thick ice over the past 13 years.
