NSIDC Confirm 10 Year Pause In Arctic Summer Ice Extent

The holy grail of global warming alarmism – the Arctic – in a decadal pause, following the multi-decadal global temperature pause! Ouch.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

There has been a lot of misinformation about the imminent disappearance of summer Arctic ice.

Only a couple of weeks ago, the Met Office were crowing about “declining Arctic sea ice”.

In reality, as NSIDC confirm, average Arctic sea ice extent in September has continued the flatlining of the last decade.

This of course is far too short a period to be of any significance, any more than the period of 1979 – 2007. Will the pause in Arctic continue? Will the “death spiral” recommence? Or will we see a cyclical increase in Arctic ice, just as we did when the AMO turned cold in the 1960s?

Who knows. What we do know is that alarmist claims of imminent Arctic ice collapse are without substance.
