Many leading experts told us that the Arctic would be ice-free this year.

James Hansen : ‘This is the last chance’


“We see a tipping point occurring right before our eyes,” Hansen told the AP before the luncheon. “The Arctic is the first tipping point and it’s occurring exactly the way we said it would.”

Hansen, echoing work by other scientists, said that in five to 10 years, the Arctic will be free of sea ice in the summer.

The alarming loss of sea ice which has grown worse each summer over the past several decades, has taken a sharp turn for the worse: this year the loss is right in the middle, the most resilient part of the ice cover. This could lead to a completely ice-free Arctic Ocean by September.

    The rate of increase of the ice extent now is greater than in November 2005, then “technically” we may say that the Arctic ice is doing better now than in 2005: it’s basically the same extent, but is growing faster now.
    The rate of change had a little inflection at the beginning of the month due to the solar flares, but it’s back again to the extraordinary rate of October.
    I cannot realistically expect the ice to continue to increase as it’s now, but if we have another 30 days like in October we’ll probably reach *record Arctic ice* by the end of this year.
    It could happen.
    If it does, it will be a tremendous headache for the IPCC, Hansen and the rest of the team, as they’ll have to scramble another new model to explain yet another failure of the present ones.
    It’s good to have Mother Nature on your side!

    (Reuters) – U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced on Friday the Pentagon’s first Arctic strategy to guide changes in military planning as rapidly thawing ice reshapes global commerce and energy exploration, possibly raising tensions along the way.

    More taxpayers money to the military. –

  5. Robert Austin says:

    Atowermadeofcheese equates a plausible but failed prediction of record low Arctic ice extent by an unpaid and amateur blogger with a ludicrously unrealistic prediction by paid “professional” scientists. And a person hiding behind a tower made of cheese has no right to call anybody a coward.

    If the theory doesn’t fit, move the goal post.
