In 2008, he tried to kayak to the North Pole, based on junk science from Mark Serreze. Pugh made it about 20 miles out of the 800 miles he planned to kayak, before he got blocked by ice.

    Why is the Mean Value for the Sea Ice Extent and Greenland’s SMB so far behind current dates? The Sea Ice is 16 years behind and the SMB is 6 years. I can understand having a Mean Value end around 2015 or 2016, but not 2000 or 2010.

    • AndyG55 says:

      They have to use as much of the recovery from the extreme levels in the late 1970’s as they can get away with.

      If they compared the Arctic sea ice levels to the whole of the current interglacial, they would be laughed of their little stage. Arctic was often summer ice free in the first 3/4 of the Holocene, then there was the “Neoglaciation”, where sea ice started gradually increasing to a peak in the LIA, just a few hundred years ago.

      Current levels are only a TINY step down from the peaks of the LIA.

      By starting at the peak in the late 1970’s, (which was up close to those of the LIA), they can pretend to everyone that they think the recovery is SCARY in some way and can support their brain-washed anti-science AGW AGENDA.

      REALITY brings their whole FARCE crashing down, which is why the likes of griff and Jimbo and the other Arctic bed-wetters, HAVE to DENY the longer term FACTS of Arctic sea ice extent.

  5. Griff says:

    I can’t understand why Tony keeps posting this…

    The sea ice extent is not ‘normal for the time of year’ – it is, despite a cold summer, heading for being in the top 3 low extents of the satellite record, which is the same as saying top 3 low extents since reliable records.

    The August PIOMAS mass figures show amount of ice bumping along the bottom of the chart..

    • AndyG55 says:

      I can’t understand why griff continues to post its MORONIC RUBBISH.

      The sea ice is actually WELL ABOVE normal.

      Its above what it has been for 90-95% of the last 10,000 years

      It was the 1970’s extreme that was NOT NORMAL.

      griff is so, so intent on its continual Arctic bed-wetting that it CANNOT and WILL NOT allow that FACT to get into its pathetic little mind.

      DENIAL is its only choice.

      So it will just keep up its self-sogging monotonous dribble.

      It cannot help itself.

      • Griff says:

        It was the period 8000 years ago which was not normal, because the Earth’s orbital inclination was such the arctic received much higher insolation in summer.

        For the ‘normal’ period outside this influence, the sea ice extent is exceptionally low and going lower.

        • gator69 says:

          There is no noraml in climate or weather Ms Griff. Why do you hate poor brown people?

          • Griff says:

            but andy says the 70s were not normal, so according to him there must be a normal?

          • Gator69 says:

            You are the abnormal feature here Ms Griff.

            Why do you hate poor brown people?

          • AndyG55 says:

            The Holocene normal is FAR less than current extent.

            Do you really DENY that the late 1970’s was a peak up there with the extremes of the LIA.

            Are you really that much in DENIAL against actual evidence !!

        • AndyG55 says:

          BULLSHIT.

          Sea ice levels were MUCH lower during the MWP.

          You are a deceitful pack of sodden LIES, griff.

          Look at the graph.

          The ONLY time there has been more sea ice was during the short period of the LIA, and currently is only a TINY step down from those EXTREME levels.

        • sunsettommy says:

          Here is another lie by warmist troll, Griff.

          You were told repeatedly of a few published papers showing evidence of little to no Summer ice during Medieval Warm Period. A time frame during the NEGATIVE solar insolation effect, which began around 3,000 B.C.

          Here it is again:

          Birds and Climatic Change
          Kenneth Williamson (1975) Birds and Climatic Change, Bird Study, 22:3,143-164, DOI: 10.1080/00063657509476459

          “HISTORICAL REVIEW
          Between 1000 and 1300 average summer temperatures were about 1°C higher than today, with the mean annual temperature higher by perhaps 4°C in a largely ice-free Arctic. Eric the Red, a renowned world citizen of that time, has been much maligned as the first progressive publicity man for giving Greenland a false image in order to attract settlers; but in truth, the southwest of that vast country was warmer and greener by far than at any time until the Fieldfares Turdus pilaris arrived there in the mid-1930s. The sea-temperature of the Atlantic
          was higher than it has been since, and there appears to have been none or very little ice to hinder the Vikings’ communications between Iceland, Greenland,Newfoundland and Labrador (Mowat 1965). Indeed Brooks (1926) considers thatthe polar ice-cap may have disappeared entirely during the summer months, tobuild anew each winter.”

    • AndyG55 says:

      “bumping along the bottom of the chart..”

      You really are a logical and mathematical troglodyte, griff.
      Anyone can invent a graph with a false zero..

      1970’s was an EXTREME in sea ice. Up there with the EXTREME of the little Ice Age. Arctic sea ice is above what it has been for 90-95% of the last 10,000 years

      Your MANIC DENIAL of these fact is quite hilarious, and shows anyone reading just what a brain-washed cretin you really are. Even a Norwegian Blue has more working brain cells. !!

      And a Norwegian Blue doesn’t need a nappy.

      • AndyG55 says:

        “Anyone can invent a graph with a false zero..”

        here is a proper graph of the satellite data period.

        Remember.. late 1970’s was an EXTREME level, equivalent to those of the LIA, so this graph is coming down from a massive peak.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Notice how it has LEVELED OFF since 2006, totally in line with the AMO.

          That AMO is now staring to turn downwards, so sea ice will gradually start to climb again.

          It will be hilarious to watch to see if griff finds something else to bed-wet about, or if it will just slime back into its sewer of a troll-hole..

        • Griff says:

          We have no idea what that graph is showing, or where it came from.

            How is that non existent temp rise from CO2 melting ice?…
            …and what exactly should be the normal level of ice? No one can claim it’s not normal…because no one has defined what normal would be.

          • Andy DC says:

            Sea ice increased from 1940-1979, then it decreased from 198o-2006. Has been flat ever since.

          Coastal structures have been relocated for a long time due to erosion… has nothing to do with sea level rise or fall, and everything to do with rock and soil mechanics. Alaskan coastal homeowners aren’t lying; they’re being duped, just like you Griff.
          Look at the title photo from your article, Griff. I’d say we have a few years left before the sea rises 30’ to consume this structure. How can you be so worried about the people who built their houses on soft/sandy soil too close to the ocean, but not the millions Gator keeps asking you about?

          • Griff says:

            Gator as far as I know has done nothing to help the people he seems so concerned about.

            There are many stories of changing conditions causing hardship to Arctic dwellers.. all due to recent events which never bothered their communities in the last century. Gator doesn’t care about them.

            he doesn’t care about the millions now being affected by curtailment of water supplies due to receding glaciers either.

            I think its about time he gave up on the fake outrage and addressed the scientific evidence.

            Endlessly calling evidence you don’t like ‘lies’ gets you nowhere.

            surface temps – checked by the GWPF and skeptic funded Berkley Earth -lies?

            Level of arctic sea ice, confirmed by Judith curry as lower now than in 20th century – lies?

            Actual physical evidence of the state of the ice – lies?

      Its above what it has been for 90-95% of the last 10,000 years

      It was the 1970’s extreme that was NOT NORMAL.

        • gator69 says:

          Certainly not you Ms Griff, as you canpaign to snuff out millions of innocent humans.

          These were the bad projects. As you might see the bottom of the list was climate change. This offends a lot of people, and that’s probably one of the things where people will say I shouldn’t come back, either. And I’d like to talk about that, because that’s really curious. Why is it it came up? And I’ll actually also try to get back to this because it’s probably one of the things that we’ll disagree with on the list that you wrote down.

          The reason why they came up with saying that Kyoto — or doing something more than Kyoto — is a bad deal is simply because it’s very inefficient. It’s not saying that global warming is not happening. It’s not saying that it’s not a big problem. But it’s saying that what we can do about it is very little, at a very high cost. What they basically show us, the average of all macroeconomic models, is that Kyoto, if everyone agreed, would cost about 150 billion dollars a year. That’s a substantial amount of money. That’s two to three times the global development aid that we give the Third World every year. Yet it would do very little good. All models show it will postpone warming for about six years in 2100. So the guy in Bangladesh who gets a flood in 2100 can wait until 2106. Which is a little good, but not very much good. So the idea here really is to say, well, we’ve spent a lot of money doing a little good.

          And just to give you a sense of reference, the U.N. actually estimate that for half that amount, for about 75 billion dollars a year, we could solve all major basic problems in the world. We could give clean drinking water, sanitation, basic healthcare and education to every single human being on the planet. So we have to ask ourselves, do we want to spend twice the amount on doing very little good? Or half the amount on doing an amazing amount of good? And that is really why it becomes a bad project. It’s not to say that if we had all the money in the world, we wouldn’t want to do it. But it’s to say, when we don’t, it’s just simply not our first priority.

    So-he made 20 out of 800 miles with his kayak.
    So seems he missed the target by more than 97% :)
    it must have been a consensus which caused his failure
    as only a consensus can be so close to 97%.

    The only 97% thing is that 97% of all predictions turned out to be 97% wrong.
    Considering how low the number of man made co2 in our atmosphere is
    and therefore how little impact on climate it can have
    the 97% failure rate is the logical result.

            “needlessly flushing trillions down the drain on climate change when there are so many issues that need research funding.

          • RAH says:

            AndyG22 I don’t need to know about Glen Campbell. I just returned from my mothers 81st Birthday Party. She has had Alzheimer’s for almost a decade now. The days when she was sometime lucid in the morning have long past. It is a horrible disease. She recognizes her kids but not her Grandkids. Just before I left she was saying she wants to go home and see her mother who has been gone for almost 40 years now.

            Strange the effects. She asked how old she was and Dad kidded her and told her she was 100 and she gave him the finger! She can’t remember how old she is but she KNOWS that Dad is older than her.

            Mom had always been as sweet a person as you would ever want to meet and I thank God that she has not gotten nasty though too much stimulation will get her agitated.

            Thankfully my Dad was a successful businessman and they can afford 24/7 care at home. Most folks can’t.

            My mother, who passed away 3/21/2016 had multiple infarct dementia. Any dementia, once it has progressed far enough, looks similar to any other. My mother couldn’t remember my name, so she called me by her younger brother’s name. I let it slide. She remembered her older grandchildren, but she couldn’t remember her great-grands.

            As the years passed (we took care of her ourselves, at home), particularly after she started falling a lot and broke both hips, she had fewer good days and more bad ones; and even the good ones were, in her mind, the 1940s and fifties. She also wanted to go home to see her mom (who’d passed away in 1983 at age 90 or 91). She left us at the age of 87. I still miss her.

      Yawn……

    • AndyG55 says:

      Your site remains an anti-fact CON/SCAM/Arctic bed-wetter site until you are prepared to ADMIT that Arctic sea ice levels are current only just a small amount down from the extremes of the LIA, and significantly above the norms of before that coldest of periods.

      Your continued LIES of omission put you down as NOTHING but a low-level, anti-fact, agenda pushing, con-artist. Lowest of the low, human slime.

  8. Steelman says:

    This has been going on for 150 years and still some can’t see the bullshit. Regarding the Artic, they serve all kind of nonsence.
    Remember the coldspell in 2006 and 08, 09. Time passes so fast, not sure, but we had three very cold winters in a row. The experts and the media then, blamed it on little ice in the Arctic. In the ice cold 70’s, they blamed the cold on much ice. One doesn’t have to be a scientist to see the scam.

  9. Joe says:

    “Arctic ice extent is about the same as 1971.” What month or week in 1971 is that map from? At the top left it reads October but that could just be the magazine issue…

    Here’s the weather forecast for the next few days.
    Today

    • Brian D says:

      High pressure will move around to the western arctic as low pressure migrates back towards eastern arctic. New lows will move in from the Barents, and also Siberia.

      • Brian D says:

        Areas of low pressure are forecast to come together over pole.

        • Brian D says:

          NWP will again be under cold N winds, with ice being driven in from the basin. As I have said in other posts, I don’t believe the N route will be even close to open this year. The south route still may have a chance, but the weather pattern so far isn’t helping. We’ll see.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Larsen (1944) and Manhattan (1969) route still totally closed

        • Andy DC says:

          Does not appear to be anything resembling that big storm of 2012, thus with very cold temperatures, the melt should be very slow.

  11. Gary Seymour says:

    Limit of 1971 multi-year ice does not compute with 2017 ice on August 17, 2017. Are you insane?

  12. Gary Seymour says:

    Let me clarify, what NatGeo in 1971 showed as a limit of multi-year ice is not comparable to the extent of August 10, 2017 ice extent. First, you need to wait until the 2017 minimum, and then compare the minimum 2017 multi-year ice to the NatGeo multi-year ice extent of 1971. How else would you think that would be comparable?

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      Yes, we are still in calendar summer and nobody can foresee the future but what exactly do you expect to happen to temperatures above the 80th parallel given the late date and the current forecast? Something like this?

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        So Tony’s insane, eh?

        I know that some people are really attached to multi-year arctic ice but not everyone gets this emotional about it. :-)

    • AndyG55 says:

      Russian charts show that Multi year ice has increased over the last 10 years.

  13. RAH says:

    Pugh did not just stop trying to get to the N. pole because ice was blocking him. He was literally freezing his ass off. Got frost nipped on his butt cheeks.

  14. Jim Hunt says:

    Meanwhile at the North Pole:

    • gator69 says:

      (Yawn) Nobody died again today.

      Why do you love ice more than poor brown people Jim? How do you think the starving and parents of the starving would prioritize resources GJ? Would they place climate change ahead of the lives of their families? Shouldn’t we put our resources to saving actual lives right now, and concern ourselves with ice later?

      Pop quiz!

      Which is more worthy of our time, energy and money Jim?

      1- Saving ice, or

      2- Saving human lives?

      Actions speak louder than words GJ.

    • AndyG55 says:

      Thanks for showing us JUST HOW MUCH sea ice there is up there , Jimbo

      Stlll above 90-95% of the last 10,000 years.

      Not going anywhere near being “ice free” even by Wadhams standards.

      Still probably going to be over 4 Wadhams left this summer.

      Maybe a sub could even surface through that again, but not at the actual pole.
