The article presents information on the increase in ice volume in the Arctic region in December 2013. Satellite data has shown that Arctic ice coverage is 50 percent more in 2013 as compared to 2012. Cairo, Egypt, saw its first snowfall in more than a century in December 2013. The environmental organization Greenpeace has said that the 2013 Christmas is likely to be cancelled due to cold and snow resulting from the decrease in global warming.
