Washington: Researchers have found that the extraordinary “reverse” of global warming has led to a 60 per cent rise in ice-covered ocean, giving way to a new trend dubbed “global cooling”.

More than a million square miles of Arctic seas have frozen in the past year, a news website reported.

A secret memo to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said that a chillier-than-usual summer has left a thick ice layer stretching from the Canadian islands to the northern coast of Russia.

The secret UN memo reveals that the ice has spread quickly following the smallest ever frozen surface area, this time last year.
