Arctic could become ice-free for first time in more than 100,000 years, claims leading scientist | Climate Change | Environment | The Independent

The Arctic is currently full of ice, with ice volume normal and expected to start increasing in about two weeks.

In about 10 days, temperatures near the pole will drop below freezing.

But no worries for them. Our top scientists at NASA and NSIDC says that the Arctic is screaming, and ice-free since 2012.

In case I never mentioned it, global warming is the biggest and most transparent scam in science history.

    Only thing one can conclude…

    Wadhams is an gullible, IGNORANT PUTZ.

    How do drones like that get to be Professors of anything ???????????

    Will he ever face any academic repercussions for being so incredibly WRONG !!

    I very much doubt it. !

    Bin that one, bring on the next headline-grabbing alarm. Round and round we go.

    Interesting scenario.?

    It appears to me that the Yamal has been called to help a tanker stuck on the north side of the Vilkitsky Strait. That tanker has been there for at least 4 days.

    Unfortunately for the StuckAbout, I don’t think the Yamal will be going anywhere near where they are currently running out of Vodka.

    I have a theory that decades ago mainly lefty middle and some working youth went to college /uni to study Psychology as this science of human behaviour is generally ‘nuture’ based and what was the main regime of ‘nurture’ ? Why capitalism. The other one of course was drama/arts. . I remember in my Workers Revolutionary Party days how the movement gathered in and became dominated by the lefty grudge filled, but nearly always from privileged background, lefty luvvies. So psychology and the arts to express or explain the cruelness of Capitalism.

    One particular film by lefty Ken Loach released in 1970 called ‘Family Life’. Really showed up this attitude of a cruel heartless NHS mental health care and a right wing certain Christian values parents , you see it was western culture causing her mental illness not the fact she started staying out all night at the age of sixteen and the parents concerned couldn’t condone that. No guv capitalism and its bourgeoire values are to blame. Now of course with the science of genetics and affirmer understanding that behaviour and mental illness isn’t wholly nurture, the left youth have moved onto climate change. I really wanted to find out if my instincts on this were correct and indeed the environmental courses at uni/college had proliferated beyond all recognition in the last twenty odd years. I remember Richard Lindzen being interviewed on the BBC’s world service a good several years ago being asked why he disagreed with tens of thousands of climate scientist. he chuckled in that manner of his and said something to the effect that when he started in climate science you could name all the climate scientist literally on one pair of hands and now everyone is climate scientist even if its just studying frogs spawn in maritime climates it now counts as being an expert. I believe that is the gist of what he said and could probably find the who quote but for now my point is the proliferation of fairly young so-called scientist who became so already ideologically primed to prove that capitalism and humans are to blame . So basically a massive social movement of people who already have no doubt that western capitalism is to blame for this apparent disaster. I see Socialist Worker eagerly quotes Wadhams saying this time all the ice will be gone by 2016
    http://socialistworker.org/2012/11/01/as-radical-as-reality-itself

    Of course the left have been predicting the death of capitalism for over one hundred years so catastrophic climate change caused by evil capitalism fits perfectly with their zombie sloganeering.

    You will also note that when we had the global cooling scare the left, left well alone as they couldn’t possibly blame capitalism for that one.

    Yet this year is still on course to hit second or third lowest (90% plus probability of that) extent.

    And the ice has not recovered to pre-2007 levels and is at a historically low level…

    Earlier this month, NOAA at NSIDC published a new compilation of Arctic sea ice extent using a variety of historical sources, including whaling ship reports and several historical ice chart series from Alaska, the Russian Arctic, Canada, and Denmark. The compilation provides a synthesized mid-monthly estimate extending back to 1850. The study concludes that the current downward trend in sea ice has no precedent in duration or scale of ice loss since 1850. With the exception of the Bering Sea, none of the areas have seen sea ice extents as low as in the past decade. Historical periods that show a decrease in summertime sea ice extent in the Arctic, such as the late 1930’s and 1940’s, are smaller in magnitude than the current downward-trending period.

    This year has had particularly poor melt conditions in early part of melt season… and still in record low years.

      Only in the UTTERLY CORRUPT science of NOAA .

      They helped instigate this FRAUD,, and they will do everything they can to hold it together.

    • AndyG55 says:

      You didn’t even bother looking at the ACTUAL DATA I posted, did you.

      No wonder you are so easily led by the farce that comes out of NOAA.

      You are nothing but an un-thinking parrot.

      Hey Griff! Sailing ships transited the Northeast Passage in the 17th century. This year, a modern sailboat with a steel hull, efficient modern rig, access to weather reports and sea ice charts has been stopped in the first early portions of the passage, unable to continue. Does it seem likely that this year is the lowest Arctic sea ice ever recorded — and yet modern ships with all that technical assistance are unable to do what square rigged ships did in the 17th century? I am not saying that it is impossible to believe, but does it sound likely?

    • Yes, and of course the compilation of sketchy data was “adjusted” to fit the existing canon of AGW dogma, and will now be UNquestionably accepted as gospel to be zealously spouted as talking points by the faithful followers of the alarmist doctrines.

    • Sunsettommy says:

      Yawn,still going to pursue this overblown low sea ice bromide even when it doesn’t support your AGW delusion?

    • Jl says:

      “The study concludes….the current downward trend in sea ice has no precedent in scale or duration of ice loss since 1850.” Which would mean something if Arctic ice first appeared in….1850.

  7. ducdorleans says:

    in this Dutch newspaperbit – http://tinyurl.com/zrlbzc8 – , it says that “practically all ice has disappeared up to 80°29′ …”

    (considering communications in those days, in December 1922 they were probably talking about summer conditions …)

    that is what ? … 4°/240NM north of where they are now ? …

    and nowadays we’re in the HOTTEST year everrrrr ! … :-)

  8. AndyG55 says:

    Which year has more sea ice?

    Something is SERIOUSLY wrong between DMI sea ice extent chart and their modelled ice thickness chart.

    The modelled thickness version matches well with the Russian charts

    Can’t believe it, I’m blocked from the ‘Polar Challenge’ twitter feed. I sent a rather innocuous polite question when it all started a couple of weeks back and haven’t since tried to go back. But just know I saw a link by Ben on their website about an interview he gave and now I’m blocked. Jesus these people are paranoid. No doubt Hunt took down all of our names as a precaution.

  11. RAH says:

    They had to ward off ice that had blown into their anchorage. Now they continue to wait to see what the winds will do. IF the state of the Arcitc was as NSIDC and various professors have claimed none of this would have occurred this late in the summer. A whole lot of ice for a “virtually ice free” Arctic.

  12. Sunsettommy says:

    The article is full of crap when they claim

    “The Arctic is on track to be free of sea ice this year or next for the first time in more than 100,000 years, a leading scientist has claimed”

    But that happened just a few thousand years ago,when it was much warmer than now.SIX years ago Dr. Meier noted the evidence of ice free summer arctic conditions.Yet hack scientist Dr. Wadhams this year seems unaware of this and a few other published papers showing little to no summer ice in the Arctic during this current interglacial period.

    He is a propagandist jackass.

    “Can the Arctic really become sea ice-free during summer?

    It has been suggested that the Arctic really can’t lose all its sea ice during summer because there isn’t enough energy to melt all of the ice in the short summer. There are a couple of reasons why this thinking is faulty.

    First, we know the Arctic can potentially lose all its sea ice during summer because it has done so in the past. Examination of several proxy records (e.g., sediment cores) of sea ice indicate ice-free or near ice-free summer conditions for at least some time during the period of 15,000 to 5,000 years ago (Polyak et al., 2010) when Arctic temperatures were not much warmer than today.”

    I love reality, especially in the form of summer Artic sea ice blowing around and smacking the devoted right in the face. If is so entertaining. Love it that they do this every couple of years.

    Looks like Polar Ocean challenge has some company. From …

    Might have to zoom out / scroll to see them. The ship outside their cove is identified as “Tugs & Special craft” … hmmm wonder what that means.

    Any chance they can get Vodka and Wine refills ???

  15. Scott Mc says:

    Using modern navigation systems, satellite images and maybe even drones they are likely stuck there, unlikely they will winter there as past “explorers” did, but again use modern science to pull them out, helicopters etc….
    One thing that has not progressed and likely gotten worst, is human stupidity….

    To many the global warming scam is as real as ice freezes at 0C, I mean virtually every source except human reasoning says it must….Belief and hope are very powerful..

    • Gail Combs says:

      “One thing that has not progressed and likely gotten worst, is human stupidity…”

      Comes from the Progressive insisting that kids be wrapped in cotton batting so they can evolve into Snowflakes with ZERO experience of reality.

      Since the switch to farming human brain size has decreased. ~ 10% IIRCC. Not enough teenage idiots getting killed off before reproducing.
