Arctic Sea Ice Volume Continues To Grow

Arctic sea ice volume continues to grow, and is the highest in four years.

The coverage of thick ice has nearly doubled over the past ten years.

Meanwhile, climate scientists are “stunned” by the disappearing ice. Because their livelihood depends on lying about the climate.

    I think we can have it both ways, a warming Arctic and the “appearance” of there being thicker ice. The answer to this paradox can be understood via a hitherto unknown and under appreciated causal mechanism, now being studied by the IPCC, that is pushing the sea ice upward: Cetaceous Bio-Gas Buoyant Uplift (CBBU)

    Growing ice cover will make sea temperatures to rise.
    During 275 days of winter at least.
    It will make the globe hotter!

    Here we go again…

    a chart showing 2nd lowest volume in the satellite record… growing at same rate as it always does this time of year…

    Paired with the worse first part of year thickness record out there (cherry picked)

    This is deliberate misrepresentation of the facts…

    • Gator says:

      Which facts Ms Griff?

      The fact that there is currently more ice in the Arctic than the average of the past 9000 years?

      Or he fact that you hate poor brown people?

    • Latitude says:

      Griff…we all need a frame of reference here……

      ….what is the perfect amount of ice in the Arctic?

    • MrGrimNasty says:

      ‘Here we go again…’

      Yes you do, don’t you Griff. It’s boring now.

      You have an unduly negative view of the natural world and its beautiful boundless variability, because you want it to prove your ideology, yet it constantly contradicts and mocks you.

      I wonder how long I would last on one of your warmist blogs if I persistently, obsessively even, sat waiting to get the first post on every topic in a scathing and contrarian tone.

      It’s the fact that you are tolerated here that shows which side of the debate stands for science, reason, tolerance, and common sense.

      “Here we go again…”

      Yep, the standard WILFUL DENIAL of the fact that Arctic sea ice extent in still in the top 10% of the last 10,000 years

      The deliberate IGNORANCE , or more like DENIAL, of the fact that since 1979 it has RECOVERED from the most EXTREME extent since the LIA

      griff, you are a manic CLIMATE CHANGE DENIER.

      That is all we can expect from you, griff

      Griff,

      No, I think those are just the facts as they stand currently… Tony is not
      predicting or forecasting anything.

      Admittedly, the facts Tony presents here are not very predictive of anything, but one might wonder at the anomaly he shows, given the amount of C02 in the air currently and its power to “ostensibly” force temperature change as declared by the IPCC with 99% surety. And one might also wonder about the headlines Tony includes in contrast to what the data currently show.

      However, if you were planning on yachting to the North Pole this year, the “cherry picked” data Tony presents might be quite relevant and give you some pause… before you go ahead and publicize your journey.

      That said, I do very much admire your abhorrence of “misrepresenting the facts”… I just wonder why you don’t apply that universally? To such articles as:

      https://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/06/080620-north-pole.html

      Unless you do, your concern just seems feigned, hypocritical or maybe born of ignorance?… and is generating more and more climate change skeptics as you continue your one sided persistence.

    The alarmists seem to be fixated on Bering Sea since ice extent is low there this year. However, Okhotsk nearby has plenty of ice (Siberian influence) and as your thickness diagram shows, the Arctic core is frozen solid. MASIE details are here:

    The DMI Sea Ice volume chart does not have the resolution to show the details of the Ice volume change day-to-day. The numeric file entry for yesterday (the most recently published value) is 4 cu km less than the previous day. It is not possible to see it in the chart, I think because the black line (current year) is so thick, and another line is decreasing rapidly toward it.

    In terms of max volume (highest amount for each year in the DMI report, 2018 is still #11 based on yesterday’s value. At present, there are 5 years which had lesser maximum ice volume levels than this year.

    We will see if the decline reverses. 4 cu km is .0165% less than yesterday. I am amazed that DMI’s model can resolve changes that small.

    • AZ1971 says:

      Why are you amazed? We have GRACE and other satellites which presumably are so sensitive they can measure 1/100th of a millimeter in sea level rise from 500 km above the surface, travelling at 17,500 mph, during all tidal forces, waves, storms, and assorted other variables.

      Given that, detecting a 4 cubic km difference from day to day should be a cakewalk for our climate scientist heroes, right?

    In fact it is stalling out but a good volume year in 2018. Im curious for the melt season if we gonna re-do 2017 with a short melt season. Extent was way higher then other years last year.
