Climate alarmists believe there is as massive heatwave going on in the Arctic.
But the ice has a different opinion. Over the past week, there has been very little ice loss in the Arctic Basin. The ice edge has been growing in the East Siberian Sea and Chukchi Seas. In order to get a big melt this summer, there would have to be a lot of ice loss in the Beaufort Sea before the end of July.
The bad news for alarmists is that the Beaufort Sea is going to be very cold this week.
The next map overlays the below freezing temperature forecast for the next nine days in blue. The big melt which alarmists need is not going to happen.
Update : Over the past 24 hours there has been almost no change in Arctic ice extent.
And the Northwest Passage is blocked with 100% concentration ice.
