Arctic sea ice at record low levels

Arctic sea ice extent is at record low levels at the moment (12th July). The sea ice extent has never been lower for the 12th of July since satellite records began in 1978, thats 20% less than the average at only 7.901 million square kilometres, and just marginally lower than the year of the lowest minimum 2012. To be fair that’s not really headline news anymore because it’s been hovering just above these levels for some time. I wonder if 2019 will be able to manage the sharp plunge in sea extent levels that 2012 managed at the start of August?
