There were a couple of comments on my post, HH Lamb & Cooling In The Arctic, which are worth expanding on.

1) First, this paper from Torgny Vinje:

TORGNY VINJE – Feb 2000

ABSTRACT
The extent of ice in the Nordic Seas measured in April has decreased by 33% over the past 135 yr. Retrospective comparison indicates that the recent decrease in the ice extent is within the range of variability observed since the eighteenth century. Temporal, monotonically reduced extreme events occur with intervals of 12–14 yr, suggesting that series longer than 30 yr should be considered to obtain statistical significance regarding temporal changes. Otherwise, decadal temperature variation is also found in the northbound warmer ocean currents. The temperature in the upper layers of these currents seems moreover to have increased by the order of 18C since the cooling during…
