Imminent Climate Alarmism Disaster

On August 1, temperatures in the Beaufort Sea have dropped well below freezing.


Arctic sea ice volume is fourth highest for the date since 2003, and declining very slowly.

Temperatures near the North Pole have been below normal nearly every day since mid-May.

    Ms Griff shall return in September to demonstrate why temperatures well below freezing didn’t slow catastrophic sea ice melting. Beyond that, this post is obviously racist and she will not fraternize with people saying such hideous things.

      Her problem and that for the alarmists is that not only have surface air temps been running below the mean the SSTs of the N. Atlantic has flipped completely from what they were back in 2011-12 and have remained at near record lows for the summer. Then add a sleepy sun and they have run out of reasons they can point to for an unusual increase in “rotten thin ice”.

    Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear Miss Griff! This will never do! Oh no ….. this ? nasty situation can’t possibly be true – “the experts” and the Media are saying that it’s the warmest on record, and so we’re all doomed. Doomed, I say! ?

    • Andy DC says:

      We will have to wait until 9/15 to hear from Griff, at which point he will point to some some totally fraudulent smoke and mirrors alarmist produced chart, declare the Arctic to be ice free and do his victory dance.

    Hi…My names Griff Hunt….have you looked at the thin, unstable ice slightly off the map?
    Do have a look….

    • David A says:

      … and zero ice, I mean not even a hint of ice off the coast of California, even Northern California. The snowflakes here are in fact suffering meltdowns on a regular basis.

    That VentuSky viz is very cool. I wonder if they will incorporate additional models over time…

    Well, you know there is some natural variability up there in the Arctic – but CO2 will eventually control everything; disappearing Arctic ice is “consistent with a warming world” and physics and science and stuff and heat-trapping gasses will warm the oceans, melt the ice, warm the lands; it will be catastrophic and we need to act now.

    Let’s accept the guff above and ask a simple question: “With CO2 presently over 400 ppm considering that 350 ppm is safe, how much CO2 will it take to melt the Arctic?” 500 ppm? 800 ppm? 1200 ppm? 400 ppm isn’t doing the job, physics or no. Because observation and measurement.

    This is an outrage and a scandal. We were provided assurance after assurance that CO2 was at dangerous levels and we would see it in the Arctic. Arctic ice would disappear, the Arctic was screaming, and so forth.

    Where’s the ice-free Arctic? And tipping points. Wasn’t the open sea-water then going to absorb more heat and cause runaway warming resulting in the oceans boiling away? Well, in 2012 an enormous and rare Arctic storm blew ice out of the Arctic right at the melt season. Ice was low; shouldn’t that, plus the dangerously elevated CO2 level at least provided a little teeny weeny tipping point?

    So it’s 2018 and there’s plenty of Arctic ice. We have been lied to; it’s an outrage.

    Stats for July 31 DMI Sea Ice Volume:

    2018 is now at 115.85% of the 16-year average, and 118.12% of the DMI-charted 2004-2001 average, both %s up from yesterday.

    The day declined in comparison with the std deviation for both averages. Though the day’s volume decline was virtually the same as the day before, the 1-sigma has grown for the last 2 days. This indicates that the distribution of values for both sets of years is ‘spreading out’ a bit faster than the 2018 volume decline rate.

    2003 has made a brief comeback, and was #2 for the day, rising above 2014. Looking at their respective rates for the next few calendar days, they flip again on August 2, as 2003 has a higher-melt streak (all days in that period decline -100 or more, averaging -151) through August 19.

    Stay tuned!

    Hudson Bay is keeping much more ice than normal this year.

    Aug 1 DMI temp 80+ degrees latitude:

    Heat wave yesterday. It got up to average.
