Arctic Ice Growing Rapidly

“This was also one of the earliest minimums on record, indeed the earliest since 1997. This is a good indication of just how cold it is in the Arctic at the moment.”

Weren’t we assured, under one of the principal tenets of CO2-induced global warming theory, that “polar amplification” would be the most obvious fingerprint of increased CO2 emissions? šŸ¤”

Record cold and expanding ice down at the other pole, Antarctica, needs a theory check too perhaps!

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

It is now safe to confirm that the minimum Arctic sea ice extent has now been passed this year, with an area of 4.083 million sq km on 7th September.

This is 22% greater than in 2012, despite two major storms in August that led to break up of ice.

The ice has been regrowing remarkably rapidly for the last week, and already stands above the start of the month. Tentatively, we may be seeing one of the fastest September growths on record.

This was also one of the earliest minimums on record, indeed the earliest since 1997. This is a good indication of just how cold it is in the Arctic at the moment.

Already, ice extent is above that of 2007 on the same date, as well as 2012.
