“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,”
– Ottmar Edenhofer, IPCC Co-chair 2008-2015
Arctic sea ice melt slowed considerably yesterday, and I am now pushing my ice-free Arctic forecast out to October 29, at 11:59 am.
Arctic sea ice volume is fourth highest in the last 15 years.
Ice extent is also well above the ten year mean.
My forecast is extremely conservative compared to North America’s leading Arctic experts, who say the North Pole has been ice-free for ten years.
