A Sea Change In The Arctic

I wrote my first climate article nine years ago for The Register. It was about the Arctic. Two things have changed since then.

  1. Winter winds have changed.  Much less ice is being blown out into the North Atlantic during winter.
  2. Persistent summer cloudiness is causing summer melt to be greatly reduced.

The amount of thick multi-year ice has massively increased since it was declared gone by David Barbour seven years ago.  NSIDC tried to hide this by tampering with their maps, but it is becoming obvious now that the Arctic Basin is filling up again with thick ice.

Climate experts know nothing about the climate. They just talk trash for no reason.

    And the fraud goes on…..and the fraud goes on.

    So clouds work just as well as a cooler box to keep the cold in and the heat out. Could we call this the Cooler Box Effect of a greenhouse gas?

    Equally important is the phase of the AMO. Arctic sea ice began to decline in 1995 when the AMO switched to it’s warm phase. Most of the lost ice is on the Atlantic side which confirms the importance of AMO phase in understanding Arctic sea ice.

    The AMO will switch back to cold in the next few years, then we will see a recovery.

    “Persistent summer cloudiness is causing summer melt to be greatly reduced.”

    Really, what’s the extent trend from 2007 onwards then for minima? I don’t see any massive upswing in extent minima values from any graph since then? It is more a case of still trending downwards slightly.

    “Winter winds have changed. Much less ice is being blown out into the North Atlantic during winter.”

    Give me some stats or something quantitative. What is much less?

      And yet we have a modern ship with GPS and sat info not yet able to do what was done 100 and 400 years ago without any of that good modern stuff. They seem to be blocked by the ice that many would have us believe, just is ‘not there’.

      Even if you were given numbers, you would probably discount them by saying you don’t believe it.

      Tell us what would falsify CAGW for you. If you can’t find anything that would falsify it, then it isn’t actually scientific. You are just practicing a religion. A bad one at that.

      What I see is that sea ice volume as per the DMI graph provided is running right about at the mean. What I KNOW is that earlier this year all kinds of “experts” from the government and elsewhere were saying the low winter maximum would be followed by a record low summer minimum and that was hyped a good deal in the media. It isn’t happening. Thus something is inhibiting melt and/or dispersion of the ice away from the Arctic. So if it wasn’t decreased melt due to cloud cover during the height of the summer. And it wasn’t a lack of storms or winds to push the ice into the Atlantic then WHAT WAS IT Andy?

    I have some multi-year ice in my fridge freezer I would be willing to donate to the cause.
