When Prince did the "Symbol" thing, he sent a usable file for printing to all the press. They didn't use it and opted for "The Artist..." thing. If they still have it they could use it as you suggest.

Yeah, Arctic doesn't mean cold. It means north.

You make fun, but many polar bears were named Robert so that they would more easily assimilate into American society, and not have to worry as much about Ursus discrimination if they were without arctic papers.

Arctic: has bears (think arctos arctos)
Antarctic: no bears

We'll just have the Antarctic Ocean in the north when the polar bears die, and the Southern Ocean around Antarctica.

/back in my day there were four oceans

The word Arctic is a proper noun. Try number 6.

You can certainly try, but they've been trying to get information from Number 6 for a long time now.  Seems unlikely to me that he'll just give it to you if you ask.

It's interesting. It could mean either climate is way more sensitive to greenhouse gases than we'd imagined. Or something else is, at least in part, going on.

But it shouldn't be too surprising. Consider sea level rise has been happening at least since 1900.

arctic | Etymology, origin and meaning of arctic by etymonline

arctic (adj.)
late 14c., artik, in reference to the north pole of the heavens, from Old French artique and directly from Medieval Latin articus, from Latin arcticus, from Greek arktikos "of the north," literally "of the (constellation) Bear," from arktos "bear; Ursa Major; the region of the north," the Bear being the best-known northern circumpolar constellation.
This is from *rkto-, the usual Indo-European root for "bear" (source also of Avestan aresho, Armenian arj, Albanian ari, Latin ursus, Welsh arth); see bear (n.) for speculation on why Germanic lost the word.
The -c- was restored from 1550s. From early 15c. as "northern;" from 1660s as "cold, frigid." As a noun, with capital A-, "the northern polar regions," from 1560s.
