Smallest Arctic Melt In A Decade

The amount of Arctic summer melt is down nearly 10% over the past decade, with 2017 being the lowest.

Greenland had their fifth largest surface mass gain on record.

Greenland’s largest glaciers have been growing for five years.

Climate experts of course claim the exact opposite. They have funding to protect and their scam is endangered by reality, so they are ramping up their lies and fraud to spectacular new levels.

    Did anyone else notice the MASSIVE heating we had from February to June this year?

    Slow updating at NASA:

    This year was a test of the tipping point theory .

      To give them the benefit of the doubt- it’s the AVERAGE September extent.
      They have a few more days :)

      Pretty sure it’s a problem for them now that it’s once again higher than a decade ago. Also other data on the site -sea level ,Greenland ice (land ice) – isn’t updated because it’s going the better but “wrong” direction.

    About the DOE data that goes back to the mid-1920’s, does this measurement/assessment consider Arctic sea ice extent for both the Eastern and Western Hemispheres? I ask because I’d imagine measurements/observations for regions outside the US & Canada in the 20’s and 30’s would have been difficult (i.e., ice formed in the Barents, Laptev, and East Siberian Sea)?

    Following the MASIE link above and dumping it into Excel I get exactly what Tony gets.

    And on another note:

    ‘Horizontal hurricanes’ pose increasing risk for California

    You can’t make this stuff up. Well you could, you just can’t come up with what new terms the usual suspects are going to make up out of whole cloth in order to keep on kicking this can down the road.

      Steve re “u can’t make this stuff up” … however it can be pulled out of ones arse and I believe that is exactly where way too much of this climate science originates!
      Too bad Griff isn’t around because this last shot is one of Tony’s best ever & would have plugged the little cretin right between the eyes.

    And at DMI they are showing that Greenland SMB continues to climb. The blue line has once again climbed above the gray area.

    I’m not sure that the second animation above is such an effective example. I know that you’re talking about the ice growing out the fjord (or however that body of water is classified), but a layman comparing the alternating 2012 and 2017 images will conclude that there was generally a lot more white stuff around there in 2012 than in 2017.

    DMI looks like they are delaying the SMB post for 8/28 for some reason. Usually it is out by 10:00 p.m. Central Time. Not yet posted this evening.
