Time For The Faithful To Fire Up The Blowtorches

With cold weather forecast over the Arctic through the summer solstice, Democratic Party prophet James Hansen is going to need a lot of help to melting twenty-three trillion tons of ice in the next 70 days.

This summer marks five years since Reggie unveiled his Arctic blowtorch, which was going to make the Arctic ice-free that summer. Perhaps they could organize a prison Arctic melting detail.

    I seem to remember a blowhard, but no blowtorch.

    Since i was taught by the Griff that arctic ice below the size of one million square kilometers is considered inexistent((Griffs country is 87% smaller:))
    i am pretty sure that 23 trillion tons of ice are a nothing :)

    Arctic ice has gone and will never ever come back and we”ll have to deal with it.

    “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated”(the arctic)

    • Stewart Pid says:

      A freezing cold Arctic will result in Griff not having a reason to wet the bed about all the melting ice.
      Whatever will Chicken Little … I mean Griff get his panties in a knot about now?

      • Griff says:

        Except it isn’t freezing cold. Svalbard is above average, there’s a warm storm over the Kara and temps in Siberia near the Laptev are high. also warm water coming from the N Atlantic and Pacific

        The extent is now about level with the previous lowest for the date in 2016 and I would expect we’ll have a new record low for the date over the weekend

    • Griff says:

      That is the official definition for ‘ice free’, yes… accounts for fast ice round Greenland coast, Canadian Archipelago etc.

      • Gator says:

        The definition of ice free is no ice. Only idiots would consider a million square kilometers of anything to be “free” of it. So your belief is understandable.

      • AndyG55 says:

        ice free = 1MILLION km² = 1 Wadham

        Ice free when there is OVER 4 TIMES the area of the UK.

        Accounts for total inability to accept REALITY.

    “Perhaps they could organize a prison Arctic melting detail.”

    Ok, that was seriously funny.

  4. Ulric Lyons says:

    A very positive NAO this May, which accounts for the North Atlantic and Arctic cooling.

    Has Reggie been locked up?

  6. Steve Parker says:

    NSIDC hasn’t gotten the memo yet. https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/

    • RAH says:

      Yea. I especially like this one:

      Some on must be using a big blow torch up there in Greenland because the temps and their claim of melt do no compute otherwise.

      • Andy says:

        DMI is also saying the melt season has started, so you can’t just claim NSIDC are lying.

        The melt season has started but there is still mass gain on the ice sheet at the moment, apparently this is common at the start of the melt season in Greenland ( I am no expert, just saying what DMI say)


      • RAH says:

        You obviously didn’t even look at the links did you? The temps and the claim of massive melt by NSIDC do not add up. And NSIDC does lie every single day.

        • Andy says:

          No I didn’t because I didn’t have to. If you read what I said, other people are also saying the melt season has started. So your claim that NSIDC are lying means that DMI are also lying, which is absurd.

          Or do you think DMI are lying as well now?


          • RAH says:

            Your really acting dumb Andy. Let me spoon feed it too you.
            I said “Some on must be using a big blow torch up there in Greenland because the temps and their claim of melt do no compute otherwise.”
            The provided the link to the chart from the NSIDC.

            It shows almost 25% melt extent percentage. THAT does not compute with the current temperatures in Greenland.

            Quit making ASSumptions when you don’t even bother to look at the information provided so you understand the context of a post.

          • Andy says:

            On the link you show about the large increase at this point in time you will notice that there are lots of those compared to the average curve. Go ask the scientists why this is and come back with your findings ;)

            It’s not a case of them lying, it is a case of you do not have enough understanding as an armchair “scientist” . I use the last word very loosely in your case..

            Good luck


          • Andy says:

            Note, you also linked to a current temps map that I showed to be wrong compared to current actually measured temps. So your assertions are false even from the data point of view.

            Rather than emailing NSIDC and DMI and wasting their time I think you should first recheck you have the correct data before posting.

            Well the 5ºC at Nuuk would compute as melting up to about 1km.

      • AndyG55 says:

        Greenland melting.. at MINUS 5-10 C !!!

  7. gregole says:

    Hansen’s solemn pronouncements. Arctic is screaming. Arctic death spiral. Tipping points.

    All fake news of their day. Fake then. Fake now. Fake scientists. Fake journalists.

    2018 and CAGW is turning out to be either colossal scientific incompetence or outright fraud.

  8. Andy says:

    Greenland had it’s coldest May temp ever recorded at summit station Tony, -46.5C

    One for your database.
