  1. Use 2014’s peak to project how much of the poles will be an icy, white wasteland in 828 years. That would be interesting.

    1. OK, simple math says at the addition rate of 1.7 million km2 between 1980-2014, in another 828 years there will be another 41.4 million square km—nearly tripling the extent of today. That would not be a future anyone would want to see.
