MMDE: North Pole shown as ice on maps

Current: North Pole just ocean on maps

Do you know where the North Pole is on a map, or globe of the earth? Sure, until you actually look at one and find it's no longer there. The South Pole is seen as the huge white mass of Antarctic ice, but who doesn't remember the North Pole being seen the same way?

Even Google Earth doesn't show it - all we see is ocean. Ice is shown on Greenland, whilst Iceland is ... clear.

Maps seem to have stopped showing it in December 2012 - a very significant date to those watching the Mayan calendar back then. Is global warming working faster than anyone realised? In any case, Santa must be very confused indeed.
