1000 Miles Of Ice Growth In 12 Days

One week ago, our top government funded experts announced that the Barents Sea is hot and the ice was melting to record low levels.

Only a complete moron could believe that the Arctic is seeing record low levels of ice in December, and over the last 12 days ice in the Barents Sea has expanded 1,000 miles towards Svalbard. It isn’t clear to me how ice grows 300 feet per minute while it is “shrinking in record heat.”

Arctic sea ice extent is essentially identical to January 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Minimum ice extent has been growing for a decade.

Yesterday, a leading Kiwi expert described the rapidly growing sea ice as “vanishing.”

In 1922 (one of NASA’s coldest years on record) glaciers were rapidly disappearing in the Arctic and ice never formed near Svalbard all winter.

Everything you hear from government climate clowns and their useful idiots in the press is fake news.

    Now they will shift the topic to ice thickness, and MYI. The theory that predicts everything always wins.

    It is WITCHCRAFT! Witchcraft I say!

    There be witches up in the Arctic and they are disguising themselves as Poley Bears so we think the Poley Bear population is increasing!

    It is encouraging that American scientists are paying attention to this very large Progressive constituency and are ready to fix the Arctic:

    The answer to climate change could be 10 million wind turbines in the Arctic
    By Luke Dormehl

    Climate change is something a whole lot of people are concerned about, and the answer that is often given for how to address the issue is to fix the Arctic. That’s because the Arctic is where temperatures are rising the quickest, sea ice is decreasing every year, and thawing permafrost is helping release increasing amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas.

    How do you solve a problem of this scale? Well, you need a similarly ambitious idea, and that’s exactly what researchers from Arizona State University — led by astrophysicist Professor Steven Desch — have come up with.

    In a new paper, the investigators describe a geo-engineering project so massive that, with a couple of evil tweaks, it could be the villainous plot out of a Roger Moore-era James Bond movie. Basically it involves using 10 million turbines to freeze more ice over the course of Arctic winters. These turbines would pump water from under the surface, where it can freeze and thereby thicken the ice for winter.

    10 million wind turbines would, as you might imagine, come with a bit of a steep price tag — and Desch and his team peg the cost at around $500 billion. As Desch pointed out, that’s a lot of money, even if it were to be doled out at a rate of $50 billion a year over ten years. The cost would still be reachable for governments, assuming their citizens approved.

    The alternative is geothermal harvesting of the Arctic heat to produce electricity and run refrigerators to freeze the water. I hope that Progressive scientists at the University of Colorado-Boulder are working on such competing designs so we will not lose to Arizona State when Progressive governments decide to pull the trigger on the $50B expenditure and fix the Arctic.

    I am certain that America’s Progressive sportsmen will support the new plan to fix the Arctic because it’s the right thing to do.

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      Correcting a minor typo: It takes $500B to fix the Arctic, not $50B.

    • Shooter says:

      I just wonder how they assume wind turbines will work in the Arctic. It’s as if they have no idea of the temperatures there, aside from their programmed climate models.

  4. Ernest Bush says:

    More and more I find myself distrusting the charts put up on the sea ice page on WUWT. Not that WUWT is at fault here, but that the agencies putting out the charts seem to be messing with the data. And of course, there is the DMI temperature chart based on modeling, there being almost know way to accurately measure what is going on above 80 degrees north.

    Anybody that is telling me the Arctic ice is currently melting is automatically branded a left-wing loon or a liar.

    • Gail Combs says:

      We have eight years of in your face lies from the US government and one hundred years of in your face lies from the MSM. Why ever would we trust ANYTHING connected to the US government or the MSM?

  5. Brian G Valentine says:

    We need to see the real effect of a heavy duty El Nino on this. But there are no historical data.

    The “icebergs are gone” stories out of the 1920’s had to be related to the 1918 El Nino.

    I am sick of these apoplectic “Arctic Ice Gone” stories

    “windmills in the Arctic” ? Really? I am afraid to see that the link might be real. I have to go back outside and shovel some of that hot white stuff all over my driveway. It can’t be cold, someone on yahoo says it is hot.

    • BruceC says:

      It’s real annie. Here is a link to the peer-reviewed study in question you can read when you’ve finished shovelling that non-existent white stuff outside;

        The polar bears will love it and National Geographic will run a whole series on it. I just know it!

        And the Russians are in. They are itching to cool the Arctic Ocean and Siberia that’s been unbearably hot. They are running out of ice and always wanted to build bigger icebreakers. Ура!

        Besides preventing the loss of Arctic sea ice, there may be auxiliary benefits of producing sea ice. For example, a pilot study on a smaller scale in the Canadian Archipelago could be used to extend polar bear as well as marine mammal habitat (W. Broecker, personal communication). A pilot demonstration in a coastal region would be simpler to execute than the mooring- or buoy-based design we describe here and would still mitigate critical environmental changes that affect charismatic megafauna in the Arctic. Such a pilot project would likely garner significant support from the public because it involves large endangered mammals.

        We feel that this conversation must include the cognizant governments of countries with territorial claims to the Arctic Ocean (e.g., Canada, Denmark, Norway, Russia, United States) as well as international forums, NGO’s, and the public. International cooperation is absolutely necessary, given that the effects of the devices would be maximized by deploying them in regions like the Laptev and East Siberian Seas, which are within Russia’s Exclusive Economic Zone.
