Alarmist Dreams Continue To Melt

Arctic sea ice volume continues as the highest in 13 years, and is melting the slowest on record.  With cold weather forecast past July 4th, the odds of a big melt this year are close to zero.

10-Day Temperature Outlook

With their Arctic scam falling apart, climate alarmists have returned to their Antarctic scam – claiming that Antarctica is melting in the middle of the Antarctic winter.

Climate alarmism is the most pathetic clown show on earth.

  1. Great article Tony. Thanks for sharing

  2. R. Shearer says:

    Today there are crying Innuit children in the Arctic. CO2 in their breath is reportedly at high levels. This is among the greatest evidence yet for Global Warming.

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      A National Geographic crew is banging on the front door trying to get in and film the crying children. Tears are rolling down their cheeks.

      The photographer cries through the door:

      “It’s not like I walk around with a tranquilizer gun or 400 pounds of seal meat.”

      “We must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earth — our home — first.”

      The whole Arctic is screaming. It’s a pandemonium. It drives the Innuit parents crazy.

    Just i: oops…

    Study: Arctic Sea Ice Was Thinner In 1955 Than In years 2015-2017

    According to a new paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, the observed mean thickness of the sea ice in the region north of (Arctic) Svalbard was substantially thinner (0.94 m) in 1955 than it has been in recent years (~1.6 m, 2015/2017).

    • R. Shearer says:

      Oh yeah, then why didn’t the Russians have even bigger nuclear powered ice breakers back then and in the 1930’s? /sarc

    Thanks for posting, Tony. Looking at your chart of yeaterday’s sea ice volumes compared to prior years, there is an interesting correspondence and pattern of the values every 4 years., beginning with 2006. The pattern is 2 years decline, 2 years recovery to just about the same value as 2006, putting 2006, 1010, 2014 and this year at just about the same level for the day.

    The values for both 2014 and 2018 are getting closer day, by day, with 2014 declining at a slightly lower rate than this year. Both of them ar narrowing the gap with the next highest year, 2005, which DMI does not show on its graph.

    2018 and 2014 are continuing to rise above the average for the day, and 2005 is declining toward the average.

    Stay tuned!

    • AndyG55 says:

      Not fair , Steven.

      You and Tony get the DMI volume data while I am asleep :-)

      maybe only 3-4 days until 2018 crosses above 2005 at this rate, I’d say.

      • Steven Fraser says:

        I don’t think it will be that fast, based on the recent gap-close rate. The next 4-5 days should tell.

        Stay tuned.

        And, G55, why not write a bot that will go do the download and daily value select for you?

  5. Bob Hoye says:

    The South China Post relates the Antarctic melt to CO2.
    Does that mean that carbon dioxide eats the ice from the surface down?
    A super ablation in a frozen world?
    Now I get it!

  6. Lasse says:

    No sign of accelerated melting.
    Next time some expert points at the open sea and talks about albedo he must be confrontated by some open-minded reporter, if there are any.

  7. feathers says:

    Today from the “conservative” Washington Examiner:

    “What’s unfolding in the Arctic is an accelerating meltdown of the polar ice cap unprecedented in modern times, opening up potential new shipping lanes and sparking a race for dominance in an area estimated to hold 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil and 30 percent of its undiscovered gas.”

    • ЯΞ√ΩLUT↑☼N says:

      Must be a slow news day every day for reporters to resort to dragging out this old chestnut of a lie.

      Maybe that reporter and “blowtorch” Reggie should go for a row up there. I can’t wait for the next moron to try “sailing” to the North Pole and get rescued a day into the trip.

    • Caleb says:

      I think the point of the article is that the USA is ” missing the boat” in terms of commerce in the arctic. The Russians are investing in massive ice-breakers. They could care less if the ice is thinner if they have ships this can plow through sea-ice that is ten feet thick.

  8. Bill says:

    I said a similar thing to my wife a week or so ago: The Arctic is rebounding with ice coverage. The scammers are trying to redirect the narrative to the Antarctic now.

  9. Griff says:

    show the temps on the Siberian side why don’t you…

    I note that the sea ice around Svalbard is now lowest ever -lower than at September minimums.

    This is not a recovery or any sign the ice is not in trouble.

    • Stewart Pid says:

      You are done like dinner Griff. Time to move on the LGTBWTF movement.

    • Gator says:

      … the sea ice around Svalbard is now lowest ever …

      Not even close, you genocidal New Earther!

    • Gerald Machnee says:

      You still think the ice is in trouble? Remember, the ice does not care what you think. One of your heroes, David Barber said 10 years ago that the ice is “rotten”. It sure looks rotted and fermented now.

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        I’m anxious to get home tonight. I must talk to the pile of rocks and dirt behind our house.

        I don’t know what I’d do if they are in trouble.

        • arn says:

          And please don’t forget to use the right pronouns
          when you talk to them.
          Some of them may be nonbinarie genderfluid whatevers
          and some even trans.
          There are huge parts of dirt and rocks that are that way-transsibiria for example.

      • R. Shearer says:

        Rotten ice visited me last night and it must be quite angry because it shredded quite a few leaves, especially on zucchini plants. Thankfully it left sometime later in the evening. I did not stay up to see it go.

    • arn says:

      Lady Griff-
      i’ve never heard of svalbard before and i don’t even know where it is,BUT maybe,in case you find out that the sea ice around svalbard is not the lowest ever(by researching,comparing satalite photos etc),
      can you consider that there is somthing really wrong with your preferred science?

      And btw
      the sun gives us only this much energy
      (and an added tiny little bit co2 ain’t do shit to change this in a significant way)
      and when one region is too cold than an opposite anomalie
      is very likely somewhere else as result of a bad climate mix.

    • AndyG55 says:

      MASIE extent is now above..

      2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016

      In the East Siberian Sea, it is above 2007, 2009, 2011, 2014, 2017.

      Kara Sea extent is still above every other year.

      Beaufort is above every year except 2006 and 2013

      Canadian Archipelago above every year except 2012, and 2013.

      • Caleb says:

        Judging from DMI volume graph, we have roughly 4500 km3 more sea-ice this year than last year.

        Hmm. How much ice is a single cubic kilometer?

        And is it as large as a blockhead like Griff?

    • AndyG55 says:

      “This is not a recovery or any sign the ice is not in trouble.”

      Nope, recovery form the extreme high levels of 1979 stalled 10-12 years ago

      There is not a single sign the sea ice is in “trouble” (whatever that means)

      It is STILL in the top 5-10% of extents of the last 10,000 years.

      ANOMALOUSLY HIGH, griff.

      Stop DENYING climate change.

    • R. Shearer says:

      In 1974, water north of Svalbard was considerably open.

      • Caleb says:

        Good point. Also in 1817, when whalers marveled how far north they could venture, because a gigantic amount of sea-ice got dumped down into the Atlantic.

        It melts every summer. They could not land on the floating airbase on Fletcher’s Ice Island in the 1950’s due to slush, and had to wait for the re freeze in the fall. A DC-3 crashed up there in the 1950’s, and by the 1970’s so much ice had melted the wreaked aircraft was way up on a pedestal:

        The news should not be that it is melting up there. The news should be that the melt is less, and there is more sea-ice than last year

    • gregole says:

      The Arctic ice is just fine.

    • ЯΞ√ΩLUT↑☼N says:

      Geez Griff, sea ice is absolutely useless to everything. Nothing eats it or benefits from it. Sure it can be used for “fishing” off by a very few animals, but land is far more suitable for that.

      The only idiots that find sea ice useful are the fools that need to get rescued off it after nearly freezing to death just days into their “proof of global warming hike/sail/row to the North Pole”, Nat Geo photographers salivating over smallish icebergs, and you to blubber about every dribbling icicle.

      Ever thought of going up there yourself and proving what you say? Remember, going by the failure rate of the idiots before you, I think you have 3 chances of achieving anything: buckleys, f*ckall and none.

    Griff says: June 19, 2018 at 5:18 pm “show the temps on the Siberian side why don’t you…”
    Do not know about the temperatures but I guess they are close to Siberia
    In the East Siberian Sea, it is above 2007, 2009, 2011, 2014, 2017.
    Kara Sea extent is still above every other year.
    Also ice thickness is very thick this year on the eastern side next to Siberia?
    Runs counter to your argument Griff.
    not to mention
    MASIE extent is now above.. 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016

  11. Griff says:

    The puzzling thing about the DMI ice thickness is that it shows up to a meter of ice where satellite photos show open water…

    How can that be? And if they are using that extent info to calculate the volume ….
