ARCTIC SEA ICE —The Refreeze—Posted: September 13, 2015
So the Arctic has had its shortest melt season on record, despite PDO and AMO flipping into “warm” phases, and the big El Niño that is in play!
Looks like another ‘global warming’ canary-in-the-coal-mine just got gassed. Ouch.
There may still be a down-blip in the extent graph, due to storms tearing at the edges of the arctic ice-pack in places where the bottom melt is occurring, however it isn’t worth the hoop-la it might possibly generate. The melt season is to all extents and purposes over.
The simple fact of the matter is that those who root for evidence the Poles are melting, and that a “Death Spiral” exists, had everything going for them this past summer. Both the PDO and AMO spiked into “warm” phases, and a big El Nino occurred. Despite this assistance, they couldn’t come close to the low ice extents of 2007 and 2012. To call this summers low extent, (and it was definitely low), a “spiral” is to turn a spiral into a slinky having a bad hair day.
One of the biggest problems with the Death Spiral is clearly shown by…
