Artic Ocean Melting at Alarming Speed Losing Over 100,000 sq km of Ice Each day

Satellite data shows Arctic sea ice is melting to a record low by the end of the month, according to scientists at the US National Snow and Ice Data Center. Observers said that the data showed the sea ice extent was receding below the previous record low, set in 2007.
Check out this comparison photo, it looks like there is now a northern Artic passage around the top of Eurasia. Is this global warming or are scientists just now recognising a long turn melting trend due to Earth's axis wobbling? Does this wobble also cause ice ages? Or is this a new thing our modern civilization created with it's gigantic carbon footprint?
What is your thinking on this phenomena?
