I shouldn’t have to explain why. 

OK, I ran into a cartography challenged individual who I respect greatly so here goes the rundown. 

The little green circle is the North Pole, or as close as I can get on this map site. 

It’s December 30th, 2015. 

The temperature is above freezing. (0.1 C) 

A few years ago I thought it was significant that it was raining instead of snowing at 86º North in June and it was. This is off the charts.
