The Imaginary Arctic Meltdown Continues

Temperatures are forecast to remain below freezing over the Arctic Basin for the next two weeks, well into the normal melt season.

There is almost no melting occurring.

Yet Arctic sea ice graphs continue to show a rapid decline.

    What is your point? Even if it’s below zero on the Arctic basin there are plenty of ice souther. That ice is melting and making the DMI curve to decline. The DMI graph measures all the ice on the northern hemisphere.

      Maybe, maybe not

      As you say.. immaterial.

      Its still WAY above the zero summer sea ice levels of most of the rest of the Holocene.

      Its only SO HIGH because we are only just out of the COLDEST period of the last 10,000 years.

      No there isn’t. The map is limited by the resolution of my traveling laptop. The ice is not melting.

    • Menicholas says:

      Marina, the only thing increasing is the transparency of warmista lies.
      And our host here is one big reason for our ability to see right through these lying liars and their big fat lying lies.
      Wise up!

    Australia to Lay Off Leading Scientist on Sea Levels
    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/18/world/australia/australia-to-lay-off-leading-scientist-on-sea-levels.html?_r=0

    John Church, confirmed Tuesday that he was one of 275 scientists whom the agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, or Csiro, said would be laid off.

    Good news in my book (-:

    • Winnipeg Boy says:

      Trump administration would likely take that as a precedent.
      That is awesome.
      97% of AGW climate scientists agree that they are unemployable misfits and malcontents destined for a life of panhandling once separated from the Government tiit.

  3. Sea level rise is partly caused by sediment washing into the sea. This source says 64 gigatons of sediment per year enter the sea from rivers, wind, etc.:

    64 gigatons. Is that enough to raise the sea level a little? Seems as if it must be, since the alarmists’ 200 gt of Greenland ice is so catastrophic, the 64 gigs must be pretty alarming as well. We need to fine corporations and rich countries a sediment tax and start a UN committee to prevent erosion. Let’s call it the IPEC. Where’s the inconvenient truth movie about erosion sediment buildup? Here’s the link:

    WUWT has a blog by Bob Tisdale concerning GISS global temperature changes from 1988 to 2016. I am sure we would all like to see you give a critique of that blog.

  6. AndyG55 says:

    A bit OT, but I think you will like it.

    Eric Stieg on RealClimate (farce site) produces a graph that shows we are currently very much at the COLD end of the Holocene.

    The original graph can be seen at:

    https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/05/20/laughable-claim-antarctic-snowfall-accumulation-wont-save-us-from-sea-level-rise-because-weather-patterns-were-different-10000-years-ago/

    I extracted the temperature graph and rescaled the two sections to match.

    Thanks Eric, like most alarmist…… you continue to serve us realists well :-)

      ………LOL good catch

    • Menicholas says:

      Excellent Andy!
      I wish I had the skill to adjust this WAIS graph and the GISP temp graph to the same time scales on both axes.
      But it is plainly evident that both polar regions have ice core data showing that is was far warmer thousands of years ago, and we have been cooling irregularly for thousands of years.
      This would tend to debunk several alarmist memes in one fell swoop:

      – That the GISP data says nothing about the globe as a whole. In fact, we can see that both poles are cooling over the long term since the Holocene Climate Optimum. Hard to make the case that the parts in between are doing something else, especially given all the other ways have for knowing that the RWP and the MWP were warmer than today.

      – That a relatively small increase in temps will cause unprecedented melting of the ice sheets and lead to disastrous sea level rise which will threaten human existence. Pure BS through and through, besides for the very unobvious insistence that somewhat less frigidly frozen polar regions is somehow some calamity to be avoided, even at the cost of our sources of wealth, our energy infrastructure and our industrial society.

      – That the present time is somehow unprecedented in it worldwide climate regime…that we are living in a calamitous period of never-before-seen warming that will roast us all in our own hides like seven billion fast baked potatoes. In fact there is nothing at all unusual happening with regard to weather or climate at the current time. We have been and continue to be in a period of very beneficent conditions for the majority of human beings, and it is in fact remarkably constant and unawful in most respects.

      -That warmer temps will lead to rapidly rising seas and an acceleration above the current snail-like pace of changing sea levels. In fact, over the long term, sea level rise has been slowing for thousands of years, and the small fluctuations in the recent past are more likely a response to the ending of the LIA, or else may not be primarily due to melting ice or thermal expansion at all, but instead attributable to erosion of land surfaces, withdrawal of ground water and subsequent release in to the sea of this formerly sequestered water, and drawdown of various lakes and other surface waters.

      There is much more along these lines, but I have to eat something and take my evening swim.

      • AndyG55 says:

        I would expect the Antarctic to have far less deviation, surrounded by water as it is. Eric’s graph bears testimony to that, when compared with the GISP data from land surrounded Arctic.

    Creeping tyranny continues with our out of control govt.

      The first time I read your comment I saw “creepy trannys”.

      It’s sad that our country is facing creeping tyranny and federal overreach to promote creepy trannys at the same time.

  8. Menicholas says:

    Yes, climate science IS grand!
    Grand larceny, to be specific.

    And in a couples of month, wait until they have to rescue tourists from trying to do the Northwest crossing since “there is less ice”
