Record Slow Arctic Melt Continues

Arctic sea ice volume is highest for the date in 13 years, and the 30 day melt rate is the smallest on record.

Climate dimwits like to make graphs like this one, predicting the Arctic will be ice-free by 2045 based on September sea ice volume.

Spreadsheet    Data

But if they actually looked at the data they would realize that this can’t happen, because the Arctic gains large amounts of ice every September.

In order to get an ice-free Arctic there would have to be almost no ice left at the end of July, because very little volume melt occurs after July 31. Climate experts have only six weeks of blowtorching to achieve their goal.

Ice volume is still near the peak, above average, and melting at the slowest rate on record.

Mainstream climate science is toast. As I have been predicting since I started writing about this topic ten years ago.

    Yet another bad news for poor Ms Griff. She was so hopeful that the planetary disaster that would kill us all is unfolding right in front of her.

    • Griff says:

      I’m not hoping for anything: the scientific facts are not as stated in this post.

      Its melting up there…

      • AndyG55 says:

        Is coming into summer, up there griff.

        So yes.. the ice is melting a bit.

        DON’T PANIC !!

        Its been FAR lower than current for MOST of the last 10,000 years.. and the Earth is still here.

        Its still anomalously HIGH.

        STOP DENYING , griff.
        That is the scientific FACT

      • Gator says:

        It’s been melting up there since the interglacial started Ms Griff. Why do you hate poor brown people?

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        Tony Heller says:

        “… the 30 day melt rate is the smallest on record …

        … melting at the slowest rate on record.”

        Ms Griff attempts to disagree:

        “… the scientific facts are not as stated in this post.

        Its melting up there…”

        There is something fundamentally wrong with the way your brain functions, Ms Griff. I’m not even sure you can understand what I posted.

    How in the hell will it be able to melt 3-5 meters of THICK ice?

  3. R. Shearer says:

    Rather than toast, are we Popsicles or perhaps ice cream sandwiches instead?

  4. Steven Fraser says:

    Still #4, and the gap with #3 (2005) is now about 1100 cu km, and declining. Today, 141 smaller gap than yesterday.

    Last week’s arctic storm is over, and a new one is in the gap between Greenland and Scandanavia, moving toward Svalbard. We could see some icepack motion from this storm.

    Stay tuned, Popsicles (h/t Corbin Dallas)

    Sorry but this map on ice thickness is bollocks

    There is a huge amount of free water where DMI claim ice

    Why does DMI not show this on their thickness chart?

    Makes you wonder how accurate their volume estimate is !!!

  6. Andy says:

    Also current Canada side melt not show by DMI ice thickness melt

    https://i.imgur.com/HPTfDAa.jpg

    Also between Greenland and Baffin Island, the melt is not shown there either to full extent.

    DMI thickness map is therefore suspect, so therefore is their volume estimate.
