My personal theory for the rapid refreezing is that last year’s massive melt-off got rid of most of the soot and ash that has been building up in the arctic ice over the past decades mainly due to China’s growth. So now the albedo is back to normal and the growth of the ice is showing the worldwide drop in temperatures we have been experiencing since the sun got quiet.
