Global warming and melting of Arctic ice

Rossiiskaya gazeta published a report from a scientific conference where the proposition on global warming and melting of Arctic ice was effectively disproved. The fact that September 2013 ice was by as much as 50% larger than September 2012 ice is indeed under-reported. What is odd about this emphasis, however, is that it goes strictly against the plans to make the Sevmorput a commercially viable route, particularly for transporting LNG from Yamal eastwards.
On the picture – the LNG tanker Ob river goes from Hammerfest, Norway to Tobata, Japan in November 2012 accompanied by two icebreakers.
