Arctic Full Of Multi-Year Ice

During week 37, NSIDC ages Arctic ice by one year.  Note how NSIDC aged the ice last year in Mid-September.

That means the Arctic is now largely full of multi-year ice. Except for new ice from the last couple of days, all of the ice is multi-year ice.

In 2009, experts announced the end of multi-year ice.

Year after year, NASA fraudster Gavin Schmidt says it is the hottest year ever, and that the Arctic is warming faster than any place on earth. Yet Arctic ice is growing.

Either Gavin is lying, or the freezing point of water has changed.

    “That means the Arctic is now largely full of multi-year ice”..

    ..it also signifies that they think the melt season is over

    Russian charts agree, although they will not flick over until October

    How much of the green will convert to “multi-year” is a bit of a puzzle,

    seems its usually about half of it.

    Sort of like the horses’ birthday.

    Maybe Jerry Brown should declare 24 Sept a Polar Bears’ Birthday holiday. It’d make him a little more popular.

    Their image files only go up to week 21 for this year. I wonder why?

      That’s a shame, but that site subdirectory is for a researcher’s use, and as such you should just be happy it is public and yours to see.

      Still I am sure, that should the multi-year ice status be worse, the usual suspects would be pounding on that fact. So the relative silence means they don’t think the current situation is usable for pushing CAGW meme.

    This is similar to the models divergence problem. They use media for hysterical wails that Arctic sea ice is vanishing and chip away at their data to support their claims but eventually Mother Nature intervenes and they become stuck between them saying one thing and observations saying something else entirely. Suddenly there’s no more wriggle room for manufactured data and at that point their fairytale unravels just a bit more.

    I just wonder how much multiyear ice existed fot many
    at the time when greenland was green?

    I guess 0 should be the correct answer as the warm climate in greenland for sure did not stop at the boarders of the island
    but existed at the north pole.

    And what kind of apocalyptic effect did the ice free arctic have at that time?
    I guess the same as the they have today =0(at least in a negative way.)

    The Griff Al Gore bot is MIA for a few weeks now. Good
