a summer bet: man made climate change 2015?

Dear reader of this critical Suisse scientists blog

today we propose you a bet:

What will be the minimum arctic ice coverage this September 2015.

My bet for this year (made end of May)is: less than 3.5 million km2 (far below of the IPPC model predictions saying that one standard deviation low would be 5 million km2 for this decade), but first have a look here and click on additional years to sea the annual variations. So far the melting was very rapid, but slowed down since June. http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/charctic-interactive-sea-ice-graph/

or on page 19 here to see the recorded minimum during the past decades:
