Bering Strait

Two unrelated, but oddly synchronistic news items this morning: one linking the closing of the Bering Strait with abrupt climate change, the other documenting the buildup of sea ice in the Bering Sea. Typically, both articles mock the premise of climate change while presenting data that confirms it:

I have noticed the strange disconnect in mainstream news articles on climate change. The articles extensively editorialize against what is now a fairly solid scientific fact--that global warming exists--while the data presented actually supports the global warming premise (if you read carefully between the lines). The mainstream is hoping that you won't do that.

This is merely a hypothesis, but... Is it possible for the Bering Strait to be "closed" by sea ice? A stretch, I admit, but one worth pondering.
