Trust NYT or do the math yourself by calculating Arctic sea ice thickness by dividing DMI volume by MASIE extent. (The MASIE records only go back to 2006.). Arctic sea ice thickness has been increasing for the past twelve years, and is up 44% since 2012.

So I was talking to my muse and she counseled to beware of those who would dare you to crunch the numbers , those who might fear the the gnarred finger of the reaper, more than the withered digit wielded by the likes of humanus-niaveus
So I wondered out loud--- this missive, this crunching of the sea ice by the rays of an uncaring orb...could the answer be found without the need of calculation? can a mear mortal read the tea soaked bottom of the jug and savvy the organic remains of the day?...
i with the help of that sly and sultry miss, that demon who delves, by way of the pungent leaves, by divination of the dregs I see the wisp of wisdom so I dare to proffer: the reason the thickness numbers seem to climb is that all the thinner bits have melted...

Just a guess....
Cheers
