    Brand-new US Navy warship trapped in Canada amid cold and ice …..

    A brand-new U.S. Navy warship has not moved from Montreal since Christmas Eve and will spend the winter stuck in Canada due to cold and ice.

    The USS Little Rock – unveiled in a ceremony on Dec. 16 in Buffalo, New York and attended by nearly 9,000 people – has not moved far since due to adverse weather conditions that kept the warship trapped at bay in Canada, the Toronto Star reported.

    The warship known as a Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) cost $440 million to build and stretches 387 feet in length and weighs 15 tons more than the Statue of Liberty. It is capable of traveling more than 46 miles per hour. …….

      They should ask for Russian help. They have quite a few nuclear powered ice breakers and many more on order. Then again they could just buy one.

      Canada has been very cold all winter(before?), even sending cold to the U.S. But, the Present High Arctic Berserker(2), PHAB(2), or FAB(2) over average temperatures has existed for 170+ continuous days. Presently, FAB(2) shows High Arctic temperatures to be 16degC over average & the North Pole, even warmer at 27+degC over temperature…. & thawing.

        The same jet stream patterns which bring snow to Florida bring milder air to the Arctic.
        Those of us educated in science understand the principles of conservation of mass and energy.
        You should try taking a science class sometime.

    Lies, damned lies and statistics.

    And part deux.

      There is always showing just one part of a cyclical phenomena (see the Arctic ice extent which they begin at the highest ever recording and fail to note there is a cyclical aspect to the phenomena.)
      (If a phenomena is a ‘sine wave’, then drawing a ‘straight line’ to predict it will always get wrong results).

        For 395+ continuous months, monthly global temperatures have been over the 20th century average. This,despite solar TSI being languid for half a century & low for the last 11+ years (including a 3+ year period setting a 100 year record low TSI). Thanks for telling me it is cyclical & when solar TSI becomes over its average, we will have 395 straight months under the global 20th century average…. NOT! We ain’t gonna see temperatures below the 20th century average again. Maybe we’ll get lucky & the Total Solar Irradiation will chop itself by 2%. In truth, this present TSI lull, is just that… a lull. At some point the sun will return to its normal irradiation level…. & above.

          For the past 600 months, I have been above my average height. Therefore I must be getting taller.
          Try using your brain sometime.

    Alarmists rejoice, “Finally, the arctic will be ice free in 7 days!” Can someone fix the DMI ice volume chart to match?

  5. AZ1971 says:

    I’m surprised it dropped by only 30%, given the federal government shutdown. Because, like, you know, science can’t be continued without immediate funding.

    Shows its automated.

    Surely no-one with any common sense would let that get published.

  7. AndyG55 says:


    Its all suddenly re-frozen.

    Go to the DMI link now. !

    I’m guessing they might, maybe , fix it in the next few weeks ;-)

    ?Mann made?

    Using the NSIDC tool here: – one can select interquartile, interdecile or within 2 standard deviations. A number of graphics often say they are within 2 standard deviations but I think they’re using the smaller bands. I’m no statistician but what is the real difference? I thought within 2 standard deviations was the most common method of showing that a measurement was within some sort of range of “normal.”
    – Not Good in Math

    The poles are warming – or maybe not.
