Arctic Ice Goes Above Average

More inconvenient climate change (aka global warming) news…

The title of this post sounds contradictory to most of what the media is saying about Arctic ice being in a tailspin, setting records for low extents, etc. And reports of ice blocking Newfoundland also fly in the face of media claims.

I will let you in on a secret: Arctic Ocean ice is doing fine and well above the decadal average. The only place where ice is below normal is outside the Arctic Ocean, namely Bering and Okhotsk Seas in the Pacific. Claims of disappearing ice pertain not to the Arctic itself, but to marginal Pacific seas that will melt out anyway in September.

I noticed the pattern this April when it became obvious that including Bering and Okhotsk in…

Following on from the lengthy account of some of the boats which have made their way through the Northeast Passage down the years, Nauticapedia have a handy list of ones that have crossed the Northwest Passage.

The list is a long one, and many are icebreakers, so I won’t bother rehashing the lot. But some do stand out:

Arctic Sea Ice Growth Continues To Blow Away All Records

Real Science

2015-12-15-02-20-07Ocean and Ice Services | Danmarks Meteorologiske Institut

Arctic sea ice growth has been unprecedented this autumn, and extent is far above every other year since at least 2004. This graph from the Danish Meteorological Institute is the best sea ice extent source for doing comparisons – because it uses more meaningful 30% concentration ice rather than the 15% ice used in other commonly cited graphs. DMI specifically recommendsthat you use this graph for comparisons with other years.

Alarmists constantly attack this graph, because they aren’t intelligent enough to read and comprehend the simple explanation DMI provides.

Global Sea Ice Area Up 700,000 km^2 Over Past Decade

Real Science

The area of sea ice on Earth has increased 700,000 km² over the past decade. This is the exact opposite of both expert forecasts, and current claims made by experts – who lack in both competence and honesty.
