Arctic Ice Still Refuses To Melt As Ordered

Eleven years ago, I started analyzing the junk science behind the Arctic meltdown. This made the purveyors of the Arctic melting scam very angry.

Arctic ice refuses to melt as ordered • The Register

And eleven years later, there has been no change in Arctic sea ice.

Spreadsheet  Data

March 14 is on average the peak date for Arctic sea ice extent.  This year it is continuing to increase.

Ocean and Ice Services | Danmarks Meteorologiske Institut

Extent is right at the MASIE average for the date.

The highest March extent occurred in 2o12, which also had the lowest minimum. The lowest March extent occurred in 2006, which also had the highest minimum.  So there is no correlation between winter maximum and summer minimum.

Ice extent is “normal” everywhere except the Bering Sea.


Our top experts said the Arctic would be ice-free by 2008, and almost every year since then.

And President Obama’s science adviser predicted ice-free winters.

…if you lose the summer sea ice, there are phenomena that could lead you not so very long thereafter to lose the winter sea ice as well. And if you lose that sea ice year round, it’s going to mean drastic climatic change all over the hemisphere.

    I’m loving these posts on the Arctic! Tony – have you ever considered making an app for climate skeptics? I understand that Apple just censored Gregory Wrightstone’s app called “Inconvenient Facts”.

    Your app would likely be deemed to much of a threat and de-platformed but who knows. I’d pay $10 for it without thinking twice. Perhaps this can help us defeat Borg?!?

    And if the sun stops shinning it could mean drastic climatic change all over the world.

  3. Ice is just another feedback just like thunderstorms. Only it isn’t albedo in control (actually, hardly even a factor), it is ocean heat. The heat exchange in open water is orders of magnitude higher than through ice, so the % coverage is governed by the amount of heat in the water required to be expelled. High heat, high open water, until the heat is exhausted through evaporation, air, then clouds (typically) then to space. Higher clouds slow the process somewhat when moisture and heat is high, but the excursions you see on the chart indicate a process that has PLENTY of headroom to deal with any excess heat. Longer term changes and cycles can develop, but can’t last long before equalizing when a process has this much headroom.

  4. Lasse says:

    Average ice thickness shrinks from 1,5 m during winter to 1,0 m during summer. But there are less ice during summer.
    (Ice volume/ice area) at different time.

    It would be of interest to know why ice area was so much larger (grey area) in the Danish graph. I suspect different methods.

  5. Louis Hooffstetter says:

    Damnit! How can we have climate model projected sea level rise if we don’t have climate model projected polar ice melting?

    And to make matters worse, we’re running out of things to adjust…

      You should have left it where you found it, or at least scraped it off the bottom of your shoe.

    • neal s says:

      It wouldn’t matter if arctic winter temperatures rose by 10 or 20 degrees, as long as they stay below melting point of the ice. Since there are few observers up there it is easy for the traitors who generate the fake global temperatures, to claim that arctic winter temperatures are anything they wish, and few would know what lies they were telling.

      If they say it is ‘locked in’, that means they will fudge things until they get an outcome that shows them to be ‘right’.

      Well, too late now, we are obviously doomed. So let’s party, party, party with the little time we have left!

      What a load of anti-science GARBAGE. !!

      The LACK of any real science in your posts, Ms Slur, is quite hilarious.

      Do you have crystal balls?? Do you have any balls?

      SUMMER arctic temps haven’t budged at all and even running a bit under average. Summer arctic temps are the only ones that matter.

      Very interesting article, but they seem to have left out the CAGW effects of newly spawned zombies, werewolves, and shape-shifters.

    The Global Warming Scam, long ago exposed for what it is in the sharpest relief possible, goes on and on. It goes on because DC has been captured. The people overwhelmingly opposed the bailouts and buyouts and GM and ObamaCare. It changed nothing. The Global Warming Fraud will also go on until it does what it was designed to do: extract the maximum possible wealth from its rightful owners.

    ‘In stunning testimony, under oath, before the U.S. House of Representatives House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, John Beale, a former executive of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revealed the EPA’s goal is to “modify the DNA of Capitalism.” Put another way, the entire “Global Warming” crusade has been a complete lie from the start — to attack the free market system —  and the people telling this lie KNEW it was a lie when they started telling it!  This former EPA executive is now on his way to jail.’ -Turner Radio Network, Jan. 22, 2014

    Here’s a gif animation of peak ice in the Arctic I put together. It’s from 1972 – 2007. Lots of maps here for reference.

    • Fishnski says:

      Interesting gif Brian..doesnt look like much has changed..this year the Berring sea is way down but checking the 10 day FCast for the Island Savoonga its showing cold ice forming temps everyday…same as the other side of the Arctic at Svalbard..

    • Toto's fan says:

      Good work Brian D. Tony could possibly make you an honorary Toto if you can acquire a dark gray curly wig and grey coat.
      Interesting how it is consistently ice free up to Svalbard and Novaya Zemlya which is where the last tendrils of the gulf streams’ warming of Scandinavia predominantly terminates, turns, and flows South off the East coast of Greenland.

    Now that you have proved that it’s getting colder not warmer, it’s way past time you turn your energy into finding the grave of Jimmy Hoffa.

    • tonyheller says:

      I knew a guy at college whose father was widely rumored to have been Hoffa’s killer. I met the father once, and it was completely believable.
