Daily Arctic Fraud Update

The useful idiots in the press who report on climate, continue to insist that the Arctic is melting down and nearing catastrophe.

In the actual Arctic, sea ice extent is normal and Greenland has gained a record amount of ice this winter.

It wasn’t always like this though. In 1952, the polar icecaps were melting at an astonishing and unexplained rate and were threatening to swamp seaports. The glaciers of Norway and Alaska lost half their mass during the first half of the 20th century.


In 1939, the glaciers of Greenland and Norway faced catastrophic collapse.

    I would say sea ice extent is below normal and Greenland ice is above normal.

    The ice extent at the current time doesn’t really give an indication of summer ice minimum extent, even if low at the present though.


  2. Griff says:

    Greenland had a lot of snow over the winter… that isn’t the same as a lot of ice or an increase in the ice cap.

    and it has had above average melt at the start of the melting season:

    Remember that when you include glaciers calving into the mix, Greenland’s ice is still diminishing.

      Yes, Ms Griff is right. Only IPCC approved Ice Fairies can increase the ice cap, snow accumulation has nothing to do with it.


      Why do you hate poor brown people Ms Griff?

    • pmc47025 says:

      Griff thinks 150Gt of snow has less mass than 150Gt of ice. Snowflakes have a lot of puff but very little substance.

        Griff also thinks that there are no problems with muslims in England.
        I’m pretty sure she is today busy explaining this to her fellow citizens who lost their children in manchester
        and why the most successfull islamic export(terror)
        has nothing to do with islam and why prisons are full with criminal muslims though they get their butt kissed all the time by bureacrats.

        • Colorado Wellington says:

          I assume Ms Griff is also educating Manchester families that there are no “rivers of blood” as a result of Muslim immigration. There are maybe 2-3 pints in a child, and around 10 pints in an adult.

          Negligible amounts, even if all the blood got in the rivers.

    • AndyG55 says:

      Greenland ice area is higher than it has been for 95% of the last 7000-8000 years.

      You are a low-level cretin and a total LIAR, griff. !!

    • AndyG55 says:

      Not only that, but Greenland temperatures are only a tiny bit warmer than the COLDEST they have been in 10,000 years.

      Either you are just another piece of ignorant trash, griff.

      or a low-life contemptible LIAR.

    • AndyG55 says:

      And here is the actual Total Greenland Ice mass, since 1900.

      Thanks griff, for again prompting us to show everybody the FACTS, rather than your brain-washed ignorant propaganda.

    • Steve Keohane says:

      The last lie wasn’t covered. Calving glaciers are growing Griffy, not shrinking. You just can’t learn can you.

      • gator69 says:

        Ms Griff’s hatred of poor brown people makes her incapable of learning anything that contradicts CAGW.

    • Latitude says:

      Environment monitoring satellites have captured the rapid increase in speed of an Arctic glacier as it starts moving 13 times faster than before.

      The Negribreen glacier on Norway’s Spitsbergen island has seen a dramatic increase in ice surface speed over the past year with the pace jumping from one meter a day to a staggering 13 meters every 24 hours.


    • arn says:

      Please tell me the difference how
      scientist can and do tell snow from ice inside an ice core or on sea or on a land mass.

      Let’s have a snow&ice free region.
      All of a sudden there is climate change(the officially impossible one:it gets much colder)
      This region gets covered with 20 feet of snow in the first year.
      In the next year another 20 feet.
      and the next 8 years happens the same.

      We now have a wasteland covered with 200 feet of snow.
      (of course it is less than 200 feet because the snow gets compressed by the enourmous weight,but that’s not the point)

      What do you consider to be snow and what is ice?
      How old snow has to be to become ice according to you?
      Is the antarctic an ice free region when it turns out that all the ice
      is in fact made out of snow?
      Does it make a difference for icebaers when they can’t get food because
      of 10 feet of snow or of 10 feet of ice?

      I hope for an answer.

      Glaciers calving is a good sign of advancing ice fields. It wouldn’t be calving if the parent ice field was stagnating……………..

      Why are you skillfully dumb at this?

  3. AndyG55 says:

    And of course, the REALITY is that this year the Greenland SMB is way above the 30 year average, which was based on the upward leg of the AMO.

  4. sunsettommy says:

    Over at No Tricks Zone is a similar post,showing that Snow and Ice are doing well in the Arctic region.

    Have at it Griffy…….

    At the coast this weekend (CA coast) observing harbour seals. the national parks volunteer said she had been doing this for three years and this year she only counted 120 seals, down from 200 the prior year. I suggested we count the great white population to see if it had increased…. But she already had an explanation….. Globull warming. There was not enough fish due to the rising warmth of the ocean. Amazing she could conclude all of this from the beach through binoculars….

  6. AndyG55 says:

    There is the DOE chart to 1975, then the satellite data from about 1973.

    When combined and matched at same scale at 1975 we get this.
