Arctic Ice Cap Gets Capped.

This is good news:

Arctic warming has become so dramatic that the North Pole may melt this summer, report scientists studying the effects of climate change in the field. "We're actually projecting this year that the North Pole may be free of ice for the first time [in history]," David Barber, of the University of Manitoba, told National Geographic News aboard the C.C.G.S. Amundsen, a Canadian research icebreaker.
I'll be conferencing and blogging the next few days if the wifi gods are with me, but I'd rather be swimming. At the North Pole, of course.
