And according to the Journal of Quaternary Science earth is still following a cooling trend.

Lastly 1935 had the lowest recorded ice extent. 2007 was the lowest satellite-observed record.

And as far as normal earth temperature, we are still super cold.

climatologists reading the data have said "The composite record show large sea ice variations around a small negative trend since 1900, although the trend from a statistical point of view is not significant." -(Polyakov, I.V., Alekseev, G.V., Bekryaev, R.V., Bhatt , U.S. , Colony, R., Johnson, M.A., Karklin, V.P., Walsh, D. and Yulin, A.V. 2003. Long-Term Ice Variability in Arctic Marginal Seas . Journal of Climate 16, 2078-2085.)

The solid line is smoothed data the spotted line is made of points of observation. The Y axis is ice-extent anomalies (x 1000 km2) and X is year. The blue box is when the satellite-era began.

Not to mention both our graphs are rather recent. If you look at 100 years of data the Arctic has only lost ice at 0.5%-0.7% per decade, with multiple fluctuations included. Which is considered normal after coming out of a little ice age only 1000 years ago.

If you look at a graph that includes arctic sea ice Maximums and minimums the graph looks a lot less extreme.
