If nothing else, this is an interesting study on how the same story can be presented by the media...and send different messages.

First the "world is coming to an end" angle, MSNBC style.
'State of the Arctic' report sees warming at work
Federal agency releases work by 20 international scientists

WASHINGTON - Signs of warming continue in the Arctic with a decline in sea ice, an increase in shrubs growing on the tundra and rising concerns about the Greenland ice sheet.

“There have been regional warming periods before. Now we’re seeing Arctic-wide changes,” James Overland, an oceanographer at the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory in Seattle, said Thursday.

For the past five years, it was at least 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit above average over the Arctic over the entire year, he said.

But wait...here's the same story with a bit of information I didn't see in the MSNBC version.
Arctic resists warming

RESEARCHERS: New patterns of cooling ocean currents, winds suggest region is struggling to keep its balance.
By ROBERT LEE HOTZ
Los Angeles Times

An international team of scientists reported Thursday that rising temperatures are steadily transforming the Arctic -- warming millions of square miles of permafrost, promoting lush greenery on previously arid tundras and steadily shrinking the annual sea ice.

Yet the researchers also found new patterns of cooling ocean currents and prevailing winds that suggested the Arctic, long considered a bellwether of global warming, may be reverting in some ways to more normal conditions not seen since the 1970s.

Taken together, these findings may be evidence, the researchers said, of the region struggling to keep its balance, as rising temperatures slowly overturn the long-established order of seasonal variations.
