More Arctic Sea Ice Than 1922

During the winter of 1922, there was no sea ice around Spitzbergen (Svalbard.) The water had warmed by 12C and it was too warm for seals.  There was a radical change in climatic conditions, with unheard-of high temperatures.

This year, there is lots of ice around Svalbard, and ice in the Barents and Kara Seas is very close to the 1981-2010 median edge.


Temperatures are very cold there, and the ice is growing rapidly.


Experts describe this increase in ice since 1922 and normal ice conditions – as a tipping point of global warming. As is normally the case, the data shows the exact opposite of  claims made by climate scientists.

    Expert: Someone who knows more & more about less & less until he or she knows everything about nothing.

    1922 that was not even the warmest winter up there.
    It got warmer until 1930. (As in parts of Europe)

    Yeah, everything is backwards from what it should be in a warming world. Even in the satellite measurement era, today’s arctic ice extent is higher than the same day in 1974.

    In Boulder it’s 0F right now (-18C). On the same date in 1901 it reached 75F (24C). I’m not confounding weather with climate but just look at trend lines and variability. The gold standard of climate science is fool’s gold.

    But the party of science will tell us that warming makes things colder too. Is it any wonder that where these people live measles is making a comeback and the homeless shit freely in the street? (Can’t have restrooms with walls because walls don’t work.)

    Gator: CO2 follows temperature,…

    Bingo. Its radiative forcing component is so small, atmospheric temperature changes overwhelm that. So, what we observe in the real world is that CO2 changes are occurring after temperature changes.

    But it’s best to ignore all that if you want to be liked by the in-crowd and don’t want to be labeled a science denier.

    For some strange reason you neglect to mention the Bering Sea.

    Why is that?

    7th lowest ice extent for the date today… last 5 years all in the top 7.

    The ice off Svalbard and Franz Josef Land is highly broken up and dispersed… it ain’t solid and has been blown in by winds… going to go soon

    and you are ignoring the very early break up which has started in the Chukchi

      Little CLIMATE CHANGE DENIER is back with his wilful ignorance

      Not 7th lowest,

      All of the last 10,000 years except the LIA and the extremes of the late 1970s has been LOWER than now.

      So somewhere around the 9,500th lowest of the interglacial.

      Laptev Sea is FULL

      Canadian Archipelago is FULL

      Kara Sea is above the 12 year average

      Barent Sea is above every year back to 2006 except 2010.

      So you can stop your sea ice bed-wetting little climate change denying trollette..

      WHEN will you stop ignoring the FAILED no summer ice predictions, and the published science research showing that early in the interglacial period of little to no summer ice that lasted for centuries?

      No evidence that the planet or even the polar region suffered during that time, the Polar Bears are here, so are the Eskimos and the Seals.
