From the Skeptical Science article:

"...The transport of ocean heat to depths, and to the poles, will drastically slow down, ..."

That sounds like the Arctic melting will slow down as the rest of the world gets warmer, paradoxically. Is that correct?

Most (90% or so) of the heat transfer to the Arctic is via atmospheric water: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2015JC011045/full
