Arctic Sea Ice The Same Thickness As 1940

The Danish Meteorological Institute reports that Arctic sea ice is about two meters thick.

In 1940, Arctic sea ice was also about two meters thick.

In 1958, the New York Times reported that Arctic ice was about two meters thick, and that people carry a popular misconception that the ice is much thicker than it is. They also predicted an ice-free Arctic within one generation.

Arctic sea ice is about the same thickness as 75 years ago, but because people are constantly being lied to about climate by government scientists, they carry the same misconceptions which people had 60 years ago.

    When comparing articles of the past with ‘modern’ articles
    than one can see what went wrong and how deep science has fallen:

    While old articles are just articles with a neutral base,
    the new ones are full of intentions,propaganda,scare and subliminal indoctrination/reeducation for hysterical people – a group that has not existed
    few decades ago.

    Idiots who are crying for ‘safe zones’ to be protected against harmless/irrellevant things but on the other side let themselves and their children get raped without saying a word as long as the offender is from a certain ideology /background.

    MASIE is showing a slight decline in extent, entirely due to deficits in Bering and Okhotsk Seas in the Pacific.

    Griff bait…. ;)

    In the mean time, has anyone else noticed that Google will have dancing cartoons for every kind of non-white holiday…La Raza, Kwanzaa, Cinco de Mayo,….you name it

    Here it is Easter…and they have the generic Google page

    ..and do we need to send out a search party for Gail??

    Happy Easter guys!

    Thickness is rather hard to judge through the whole Arctic, ongoing analysis needed.

    Hopefully the Arctic will have an average summer weather wise to see how this year goes against last which was average also, forgetting those 2007 and 2012 outliers.

    Maybe these guys could answer the question since they’re supposed to be doing some kind of measurements on their trek. From the blog, it seems like they’re just complaining about the cold most of the time. 222km to go at the start on 4 Apr and they’re now about 70km from the pole. A lot of it is in Dutch but the blog is in English.

    Well that chart shows that well over half the arctic ocean is LESS than 2m thick and that soon after the winter maximum.

    If you combined that with the charts showing concentration you’d see a lot of broken up spread out ice round the edges too.

    Even in the 1940s the ice would have been 5m thick across that whole area.

    Even in the 1990s there would have been a large area of 5m thick ice.

    and now?

      Care to guess how much Arctic ice there was 4K years ago when the seas were two meters deeper? At current rates we can have the same sea level in 900 years, BFD.

      Why do you care Ms Griff? Nobody is dying as a result of less ice in the Arctic. Why not use your time to save human lives instaed of fretting about useless ice?

      You and your alarmist friends are sponsoring a genocide of epic proportions, a genocide that eclipses every other genocide in history.

      Why are you such a freak?

      Err, that’s not what the 1940 article above says – but then they were Russian scientists …

      Or do you have a special source for info like this that you’re not telling us about?
