Arctic Fraud Approaches A Tipping Point

The press is reporting this week that Arctic is hot and sea ice is at a record low.

Meanwhile, actual Arctic sea ice extent is the highest for the date in five years.

The ice edge is very close to the 1981-2010 median.

Ice growth since November 1 has been the third highest on record.

For the third year out of the past four, the Greenland surface mass balance has been average or above average.

Climate alarmists believe the Arctic is hot and melting, and they also believe Arctic air is extremely cold. Classic Orwellian doublethink.

    Just checked Cambridge Bay. -23 F

    Maybe it’s because I’m a Southerner that this doesn’t seem like ‘warmth,’ record or otherwise.

    Cirrusly, ‘warmth’ in the Arctic is hilarious.

  2. Gator says:

    Alarmists are the Wil E Coyotes of science. Their attempts to find CAGW necessarily end in the same fashion every time, with complete self ruination. They always wander just a tad to far out on that cliff.

    If you want good laugh, read Paul (the ferret) Krugman’s recent NYT OpEd blaming Republicans for ruining the world’s climate (unable to link from this device). Amazing power that a US political party wields globally when they accomplish so little locally. Incredibly naive and ignorant comments provide additional amusement.
    Wasn’t it The Ferret who said if Trump won election the Markets would crash and never recover? Prescient “economist” he.

    The press is reporting this week that Arctic is hot and sea ice is at a record low.

    Those press reports were reporting what happened this summer so it’s not clear why you would compare that with what’s happening today. The fourth report dates from four weeks ago and refers to what was happening in October.
    So rather a bogus comparison.

    • Gator says:

      So Phail, where can we find your endless nitpicking of alarmists? Or are you just another scumbag troll with a leftist anti-human agenda?

      • Phil. says:

        If Tony did not post misleading posts I wouldn’t criticize them, interesting that you’re happy with any mis-statements he makes.

        • Gator says:

          First of all Phail, your claimed “mis-statements” by Tony are not killing anyone, and they are not meant to support a communist anti-human agenda. In fact, Tony works tirelessly to counter the genocide created by your friends the alarmists.

          So my question remains unanswered. Where are your endless criticisms of alarmists, who are seeking to fulfill an anti-human agenda?

          And since you clearly cannot show us these critiques of alarmists, the question now changes.

          Just why do you hate poor brown people Phail?

    • KevinPaul says:

      Some of those articles are dated within days of this post, so why are they talking about what happened last summer as if it is happening right now! No, it is they who are being misleading, stoking fear with compliance propaganda. I bet you would’ve been one of those incited to throw stones on Kristallnacht.

      • Phil. says:

        Some of those articles are dated within days of this post, so why are they talking about what happened last summer as if it is happening right now!
        Because they’re reporting on the NOAA Annual Arctic Report Card which surprisingly enough is released near the end of the year!
        They’re not talking about the summer as if it were now, that’s what Tony’s doing.
        E.g.
        “Arctic sea ice cover fell to its second lowest level on record this summer, continuing a “dramatic” downwards trend that is disrupting marine ecosystems and making life for indigenous people in the region ever more precarious.”

        “The Arctic region took a beating in 2019, with near-record-warm air and ocean temperatures resulting in widespread melting of the Greenland ice sheet, low sea-ice extents and shifts in the distribution of commercially valuable marine species, according to NOAA’s 14th-annual Arctic Report Card released Tuesday at the American Geophysical Union’s fall meeting in San Francisco.”

        “For indigenous communities on the Bering Sea, a way of life is at risk as climate change hits fish populations and ricochets through ecosystems.”

        You and Gator are cut from the same cloth, making insulting assumptions above people you disagree with.

        • Gator says:

          Phail, the natural climate change denier, the science denier, and hater of poor brown people strikes (out) again!

          The Arctic has been warmer you stooge. Ice free most Summers of the Holocene.

          Why do you hate poor brown people Phail? That’s not an attack, it is an honest question that you refuse to answer.

            I very rarely insult people, I am sorry,

            Apology accepted.

            it takes a lot to invoke me, but picking a petty point to try and discredit the whole post which in fact does show that those articles are inflammatory and misleading to the general public

            It clearly does not “take a lot to invoke you”.
            Those articles were not inflammatory, they correctly addressed the issues raised in the NOAA Annual Arctic Report. Tony in fact made misleading comments which didn’t rebut the points made in those articles.

            Meanwhile, actual Arctic sea ice extent is the highest for the date in five years.

            This in response to the statement that “Arctic sea ice receded to record lows in October”, to rebut this Tony produces a graph which shows that sea ice was indeed at a record low in October! He tries to distract by remarking that on 15/12 “actual Arctic sea ice extent is the highest for the date in five years”. So currently the sea ice is about where it has been for the last 5 years, that is about 3 standard deviation below the mean!

            The ice edge is very close to the 1981-2010 median.

            A main point of the articles was “Bering Sea winter sea ice extent in 2019 narrowly missed surpassing the record low set in 2018”. The map supplied by Tony shows that trend is continuing this year and the ice edge in the Bering sea is far from the median. So again Tony supports the point made in the articles!

            Ice growth since November 1 has been the third highest on record.

            To support which he misuses Masie data, however given that the sea ice was at a record low in October (demonstrated by Tony’s graph) even a gain to -3 stdev results in a high growth rate. Of course that indicates thinner ice which will be more likely to melt sooner next year.

            For the third year out of the past four, the Greenland surface mass balance has been average or above average.

            Actually it’s slightly below average, the graph Tony presented showed that this year is significantly below 2017 and 2018.

            Temperatures in the center of the Greenland Ice Sheet have been averaging around -40 degrees over the past month.

            A bit of a non sequitur, in the middle of December at 10,500 feet above sea level at about 72ºN the temperature is -40ºC, big deal!
            That’s about the December average for the site, the record low is about -63ºC.
            So Tony’s attempt at rebuttal fails and is clearly an attempt at distraction.

            Considering the presented Arctic state to that which is known historically over the past 120 years, (let alone 10k) we find that arctic sea ice is no where near previous lows,

            Care to provide any data to support that assertion?

          • Phil. says:

            That is not an honest question it’s actually a well known logical fallacy.

          • Gator says:

            No Phail, it isn’t. You see, I can prove that you, at the very least, do not care about the millions of innocent poor brown people that alarmists starve to death annually.

            Many people much smarter than you have figured out that if we stopped wasting money on climate change alarmism, we could save millions of poor brown people each year. But you don’t care, because you have a leftist agenda, and you say to Hell with the poor.

            So why do you hate poor brown people Phail?

          • Gator says:

            Kevin, you must understand that Phail is an anti-human lefty (I know, redundant). His job here is to nitpick, and try to diminish the good work that Tony does to dispel the lies of alarmists. Phail is willing to sacrifice millions of innocent poor brown people to get his leftists utopia. He will never admit that there is nothing unusual going on in the Arctic, even though he knows better, because it suits his political beliefs.

            I have repeatedly pointed out to Phail what alarmism does to the poor brown people of this world, and he simply does not give a damn. So let me ask you this Kevin. If Phail thinks the lives of PBP are meaningless, does he love them or hate them? Non poor brown people hating minds want to know.

          • KevinPaul says:

            Indeed Gator, the communists demonizing of cheap fossil energy will plunge even more 3rd world poor “brown” people into a protracted agonising early death. How would they like to have to cook with dung and twigs in their living room, oh no they wouldn’t, just as they can’t imagine living like that, the very same tunnel vision blinds them to the truth about climate change.
            Phil suffers from this comprehensive tubular atrophy, despite all the topics Tony covers Phil is mesmerized by Arctic conditions even though many posts have provided historical proof that there is nothing alarming going on, just nature going about her business.
            When all of Tony’s work is taken into account, no person who is honestly seeking reality can deny that things are not right with world governance, and this is all from a one-man-band chpping away without peer review help or massive funding.
            I posted this link elsewhere but it clearly shows that UN communists such as Guterres use the early deaths of poor brown people for political machination.

            You really are a massive PHAILURE.

            One of the most ignorant trolls we have ever had.

            Arctic sea ice is actually in the top 5-10% of the last 10,000 years

            1979 Was anomalously HIGH as was most of the LIA.

            https://i.postimg.cc/4x4xCnCd/Icelandic_sea_ice_index_2.png

            Greenland ice area is only a little bit down from the LIA peak that drove the Vikings away, and far more than for most of the last 8000 years

            https://i.postimg.cc/VkYrnZhL/Greenland-Ice-Sheet-Briner.jpg

            Remain willfully ignorant, and PHAILURE all your life, its all you have to look forward to.

            Actually I can imagine living like that, I have even published papers about the release of harmful chemicals produced in such fires.

            Phil suffers from this comprehensive tubular atrophy, despite all the topics Tony covers Phil is mesmerized by Arctic conditions even though many posts have provided historical proof that there is nothing alarming going on, just nature going about her business.

            Not the only subject I’m interested in, problem with many of those ‘historical proof’ posts is that they contain errors.
            Take Spike55’s post above instead of coming up with data about ‘the last 120 years’ he switched to the last 10,000 years and even then didn’t address the point.

          I very rarely insult people, I am sorry, it takes a lot to invoke me, but picking a petty point to try and discredit the whole post which in fact does show that those articles are inflammatory and misleading to the general public who are mostly not aware that those so called records go back less than 40 years, a complete and obvious con job when an AMO cycle is around 60 years.

          Considering the presented Arctic state to that which is known historically over the past 120 years, (let alone 10k) we find that arctic sea ice is no where near previous lows, despite their assertions of “dramatic” decline and “extreme” loss, they are fallacious statements to mislead, if you can’t see that in the light of this, and the Orwellian hot/cold doublethink as seen through the eyes of the uninformed public, then you are dogmatically lost. The whole flippen lot is carefully tailored alarmist scaremongering.

          By the way, I’ve observed other native peoples who see climate change as a gaping purse bulging with billions, so I suspect that this example could be a similar case. Stand back and open your peepers and have a good long geeze at the full facade, you may enjoy an epiphany.
