After the ten hottest years on record, sea ice extent is normal at both poles.

Record cold in Alaska.
Record cold in Greenland.
Meanwhile, climate experts have found “for the first time” a direct cause and effect relationship between melting sea ice and extreme weather in California.
Scientists now predict that winter temperatures in the Arctic will rise 9 degrees over the next 30 years.

Yes, definitely a bounce back. Looking at Jaxa Antarctica is slightly lower than average for the 2010s but not much and the Arctic is higher!
It will be interesting to see any information from NSIDC on this in their early Feb update.
I saw the word “modelling”. That says enough.
Have you by any chance inspected your favourite DMI volume graph recently Tony?
Obviously you have now!
What do you make of the inset DMI Arctic sea ice volume graph?
And why the strange new title for this post?!
NSIDC extent is above all the last 10 years except 2013 and 2014.
Also above 2005 and 2006
Get over it, slimo. !!
Thanks for your kind words Spike.
How about DMI volume?
And why the strange new title?
What part of “higher than most of the past 9,000 years” do you not understand Genocide Jim? Study after study shows that an ice free Arctic is to be expected during this interglacial. Just how f*cking stupid are you? And why do you hate poor brown people so very much? What have they ever done to you?
This is a mind-boggling house-of-cards “hypothesis”. They say “melting ice in the Arctic leads to more moisture getting blown across the Pacific on trade winds, which in turn causes warming ocean temperatures as in El Ninos …” WHAAA?
How does Arctic melting affect moisture over the Pacific? (how does that steaming Arctic water get to the Pacific and be warmer than the Pacific?)
How does moisture over the Pacific cause warming ocean temps? (isn’t it the other way around?)
What is the meaning of “warming ocean temperatures as in El Ninos”? Is he trying to say that warm oceans cause El Ninos? (which is exactly the opposite of the phenomenon in which stored solar heat in the oceans is released to the atmosphere)
As I recall, PNAS publications are not peer-reviewed because the authors are all such esteemed scientists that only “deniers” would question their “Settled Science – TM”)
I don’t know if you’ve seen this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpKN6Jd-cLA&t=96s
Tony, Scott Adams said some ok comments about you as to data integrity issues. You should be able to quickly connect with Scott about this better data idea. He has also talked about Blackrock and insurance companies expressing interest to profit from climate change. These companies shouldn’t have a problem with investing toward the building of Class 1 weather stations around the world as well as greatly accelerate the deployment of Argo buoys. Get rid of adjustments and infill and let Statisticians openly decide the processes to merge the measurements. Dump the class 3, 4, & 5 stations as well as the ship intake readings. We still have a few months before the end of the world. Scott really does care about the world. You can make great data happen!
I think I saw “modelling” somewhere in that “study”.
About your last video, “The 60% Rule,” two things: 1) the buoys run by ABOM show sea-levels lower now than when the program was started. There is a lot of variability in the data, some changes can be measured in tens of metres. (https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/) By looking at each station, I have found sea-levels around Australia to have fallen significantly since the buoys were first used.
Also, I think it valuable to mention, when sea-level changes of 3 or more metres are brought up, it should be noted that all the known coal, oil, and gas reserves in the world only contain enough energy to melt about a third of the ice in Greenland… directly. That means that the limit on sea-level change from anthro sources is about two metres and far less if the heating is due to the CO2 released from such a burning, which it probably isn’t anyhow.
Proven Oil Reserves: 1×10^20 J
Proven Nat. Gas Reserves: 5×10^20 J
Proven Coal Reserves: 3.75×10^23 J
Needed to melt 1kg of ice: 335,000 J
Ice in Antarctica: 30M km^3 (roughly)
Ice in Greenland: 3M km^3 (roughly)
Needed to melt just Antarctica: 9×10^24 J
Needed to melt just Greenland: 9×10^23 J
It is actually quite easy to pick that the sea ice is normal – there have been no alarmist articles about how rapidly it is retreating. The stuff that escapes the purge normally references stuff that happened years ago, or stop their graphs just below the upturn in the data – Mike’s Nature trick is the default mechanism.
But then I an just a cynic.
The BBC are telling us that an enormous glacier in the Antarctic is melting at an alarming rate with all the scary scenarios – do you have any comment?
The Antarctic is presently in mid summer and the only part of the continent that is above zero degrees Celsius is the very tip of the Antarctic Peninsula half way to Sth America. The central plateau taking in the South Pole is currently -33 deg C. Perhaps the BBC needs to re sits its junior science exams and the bit about the melting point of water before broadcasting any more nonsense.
Just tell them that this January has been the coldest month on record this decade.
Well, BBC says enough.
The BBC lies, constantly.
Completely agree, the BBC is fond of wheeling out old fossils like David Attenborough to lie for them. The British Bias Corp
Read this link:
And follow the updates from GWPF. BBC is a copy of Joseph Goebbel’s propaganda machine today – climate-nazi-fear-propaganda. Unbelievable.
Then there is this…
However, the BBC’s latest report (and here)does not mention an important fact that is widely known and that it and others have reported previously – the influence of active volcanoes beneath the glacier.
Despite claims about climate change and admonition to lower our greenhouse gas emission as a way to ameliorate the melting of Thwaites, it should have been pointed out that what is happening underneath the glacier could be in large parts an act of geology and one of those natural and globally-important dynamics that have been occurring throughout the ages.
What is more, the scientists will remain on Thwaites for a while yet. They have not analyzed their data yet, so claims that they have confirmed “the Thwaites glacier is melting even faster than scientists thought…” are premature.
Clearly the BBC has no interest in relating the inconvenient facts that completely change their story. Disgusting.
Undres ea Volcanoes.
‘Nuff said !
Why isn’t this all over the media ?
JOE BIDEN, 23 JANUARY 2018: “And that is I’m desperately concerned about the backsliding on the part of Kiev in terms of corruption. They made—I mean, I’ll give you one concrete example. I was—not I, but it just happened to be that was the assignment I got. I got all the good ones. And so I got Ukraine. And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders to—convincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t. So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said—I said, call him.(Laughter.)I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
