The global sea ice of both polar caps now exceeds the average recorded since 1979, when satellites began their measurements?

During the cold and dark of an Arctic winter, sea ice refreezes and achieves its maximum extent, usually in late February or early March.

According to a NASA analysis, this year the annual maximum extent was reached on Feb. 28 and it was the fifth lowest sea ice winter in the past 35 years. A decline in the sea ice cover in winter is thus a manifestation of the effect of the increasing greenhouse gases on sea ice. (www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/arctic-seaicemax-2013.html)

Your government at work. Scary isn’t it.
