The faithful remain undaunted however. Reality and veracity play no part in the world of climate alarmists – for whom no lie is too big.

    This trend is not the alarmists friend. They’re going to have to the reruns of classic Arctic ice porn to get their kicks.

  2. Klaus Berger says:

    Wonderful!! I had just seen the same at DMI and was of course thinking about you. “The canary in the colemine”. Oh yes, but not now! Now their propaganda is about “extreme weather”.

    • arn says:

      Extreme Weather is the new climate change formerly known as AGW.
      (as they ran out of their fear porn scenarios
      they now turned to call any run of the mill anomalie
      which barely reached the news into a weather extreme.
      They just recycled their “1979 is proof of coming ice age”
      into “1979 was the perfect weather and everything thats warmer is a catastrophy and proof for global warming”

      It does not matter what really is
      but only how those who matter(tptb) talk about it via their MSM puppets.

  3. Ari says:

    They have been watching that type of porn for years now, endless videos of streams of cold water coming off the ice and icebergs detaching.

  4. Disillusioned says:

    Sadly, instead of hearing the wailing and gnashing of teeth (that their anthropogenic religion is constantly failing them), we will continue to hear uninterrupted denials of reality from the natural climate change “denier” crowd.

  5. Steven Fraser says:

    Tony, thanks for charting this progression!

    Its also nice to see that the DMI volume chart is finally showing the color of the 2018 line as black.

    In my calcs based on the same DMI numbers, 2018 is still #4, and progressively narrowing the gap with #3 (2005), Since Jun 1, by 523 cu km.

    Thanks for all you do, Tony.

  6. Griff says:

    This is just fantasy. The DMI thickness chart is showing ice where there is open water.

    the extent is now equal to 2016 previous lowest for the date. Ice around Svalbard is lower than usually at September minimum and the Kara Sea ice has been hit by a strong (and unusual for the date) cyclone.

    Last year the Greenland icecap probably did no more than stay the same in mass terms.

    • tonyheller says:

      This summer is going to just get worse for you. Hope you are mentally prepared.

    • Andy DC says:

      If it were not for the deliberate cherry picked 1979 sea ice starting date, your propagandists would have very little to talk about. Even with that obvious cherry pick, there has been a very obvious pause lasting 10-12 years. The entire scam is on very shaky ground.

    • gregole says:

      “DMI thickness chart is showing ice where there is open water.”

      Unsupported assertion. Data please.

      • Andy says:

        See my response below, also if you look at NSIDC they show open water also


        And that uses a different satellite and sensor.
        So it looks like Bremen and NSIDC care right and once again DMI is wrong. So can we trust their volume or extent data?

        Maybe Tony can contact them to ask a reason for the discrepancy?


        • Gator says:

          Thickness vs concentration. And they are both modeled.

          Settled science.

          • Andy says:

            See below response and come back when you have something sensible to add to the argument.


          • Gator says:

            I’ll do one better, and post the reply…

            Andy, get your parents to explain what a “model” is, and the difference between “concentration” and “thickness”. Then have them explain the word “genocide” to you.

          • Andy says:

            Gator, for the last time….

            Thickness v concentration here does not matter as we are talking about DMI showing ice thickness of 3m thick in an area that has already melted and is sea water.

            You would be better turning into a handbag and pair of shoes ….


          • Gator says:

            For the last time Andy, models and settled science. Your claims are meaningless and alarmist.

            Grow up.

    • Andy says:

      Yeah I agree with Griff here. the DMI thickness graph shows 3m of ice off the coast of Siberia to the east of the Severnaya Zemlya islands, however according to Bremen sea ice maps it is open water there, or breaking up.


      One of them cannot be right


      • Gator says:

        Modeled apples vs oranges. Settled science.

        • Andy says:

          Gator, get an adult to help you with the maps.

          DMI are showing ice thickness when two different maps show open water. Water v ice is definitely apples and organges. Why are DMI showing ice thickness when there is none?


        • Gator says:

          Andy, get your parents to explain what a “model” is, and the difference between “concentration” and “thickness”. Then have them explain the word “genocide” to you.

        • Gator says:

          I just love it when someone who was not a cartography student tries to tell me how to read a map! It’s like Ms Terak trying to explain remote sensing. LOL

          • Andy says:

            Sadly you obviously cannot, or do not understand the simple point being put. You cannot have an ice thickness measurement when there is no ice there.


          • Gator says:

            Models Andy. That is your alarmist settled science.

            Grow up.

  7. Johansen says:

    Hansen was quite the storyteller. He missed his true calling. The only thing missing in his ‘disaster story’ is The Incredible Hulk and a few other characters from Marvel Comics. Submerged streets, cop cars with sirens, and people dying of thirst! If the water table rose that high, there wouldn’t be any restaurants or police cars

  8. Gamecock says:

    ‘We’re witnessing the fastest decline in Arctic sea ice in at least 1,500 years – Vox’

    How the heck would we know that?

    ‘Tree rings.’

    In the Arctic Ocean. Clever.

  9. Gerald Machnee says:

    Tell me it is not true, Griff.

    On Dec 7, 2016 in the Winnipeg Free Press:

    Climate change on fast-forward in Arctic, U of M scientist warns

    Hudson Bay could experience its first ice-free winter within five to 10 years, Ferguson said

    “I don’t think polar bears and seals will be able to adapt. I think they’ll just die out in places like Hudson Bay. There’s little to stop the trend in loss of sea ice, even if we stop producing greenhouse gasses,” he said.

    • Steven Fraser says:

      Just gotta love the word ‘could’ in articles like this.

      Only 3 years to go on the low end of the time range, and Hudson bay is not yet cooperating! Still lotsa ice there!

    • Disillusioned says:

      The UofM scientist warned what awful climate disaster “could” happen in 5-10 years, and two years later, in a crimson red box at the top of the article is the message:

      “Hey there, time traveller!
      This article was published 6/12/2016 (550 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current. ”

      I’ll make a scientific prognostication that has better odds: In the next 3-8 years, that Winnipeg Free Press article ‘could’ simply disappear.

    • Cam says:

      Here’s the Hudson Bay ice coverage average for this past week and previous years. It’s only slightly below average.


    • Griff says:

      I would expect that Hudson Bay would be frequently ice free, but not permanently… when a similar event to this winter dumps a lot of cold down into Canada and NE USA, then I would expect an ice over. (and surely the fact Hudson Bay is only average in ice loss after an episode of regional cold shows something?)

  10. Lance says:

    Actually, the reason why it is so high, is Reggie’s torch ran dry…

  11. gregole says:

    “Arctic sea ice volume (22,100 km^3) is now above the 2004-2013 mean (21,400 km^3.)”

    Doesn’t look like an ice-free arctic is in the making this summer. Why not? CO2 is up.

    Experts made predictions, nay, dire warnings concerning dangers from CO2. Tipping points. Run-away global warming. The poles melting. Greenland ice melting. Resulting in a giant inland lake and an entire island-continent open for settlement. People resettling to Antarctica. Phoenix, the world’s most unsustainable city, (and my home town) abandoned.

    None of this is happening. My garden is doing just fine. I bar-be-qued day yesterday beneath a beautiful pergola of my design and construction, out by my pool with my three dogs and my lovely wife. High was 110F, and being humans, we have adapted to the heat. As the sun went down, to us, it felt balmy – a lovely evening.

    This entire global warming scam, and it is a scam, is silly. Somehow slightly warmer temperatures, and more trees and plants will spell the end of the world. Truly one of the greatest, if not the greatest cons ever perpetrated.

    Very good article, thanks for the sources. I’ve made a video with daily measurements between Jan 2003 and June 2018, and included your blog as well.
