Land ice has also grown at a record rate since September 1, with Greenland gaining about three billion tons of ice a day since September 1.

Meanwhile, climate scientists demand racketeering money, as they continue to lie about the condition of the Arctic and man’s ability to influence it.

    probably the same as on the las glacial period-

    “The Arctic Ocean between the huge ice sheets of America and Eurasia was not frozen throughout, but like today probably was only covered by relatively shallow ice, subject to seasonal changes and riddled with icebergs calving from the surrounding ice sheets. According to the sediment composition retrieved from deep-sea cores there must even have been times of seasonally open waters”

    Wow! All this “new stuff”. I was teaching this in physical geography 45 years ago. Greenland isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

    At the link provided in this post it states that the plot you show was “calculated with the coastal zones masked out.” And that “This coastal mask implied that the previous sea ice extent estimates were underestimated.” They now have a new plot that they state displays “absolute sea ice extent estimates”. The two plots seem to be quite different with respect to other years. Curious what your opinion is of this change.

    Linc – The graph Tony linked has eleven years of data. The graph you describe only provides 5 years of data. Therefore the former is better for a long term like-with-like comparison.
