Arctic Melt Slows To A Crawl

This is supposed to be peak melt season in the Arctic, but sea ice extent has barely changed over the past three days.

I explained why this is happening in yesterday’s video.

    Here’s another to debunk at your convenience: https://wattsupwiththat.com/2020/07/30/a-snapshot-of-melting-arctic-sea-ice-during-the-summer-of-2018/ From the final paragraph “If the decline of sea ice continues to accelerate at a rate of 13% per decade in September, the Arctic is likely to be free of ice within the next three decades,” Kumar says. And just as sea-ice retreat is largely the result of anthropogenic pressures from across the globe…” They say that sea-ice has been reducing 12.6%/decade over the past 40 years of satellite observations.

    Greenland is doing the same thing. It continues to snow, thereby reducing the amount lost to melt. It could end up pretty close to average this year. Forecast model is keeping quite a bit of snow falling in the coming days on both sides of the island.

    Whaling ships often would risk hunting north of Alaska. In 1871 the fleet was decimated when north winds brought the ice south and trapped many ships. In some ways that marks the end of depending upon whales for oil and starting to depend upon petroleum.

    Of course, that involves history, and Alarmists can’t look back past 1979.

    This is a great video. You noticed the same stuff I noted on my obscure blog here:

    (Forgive me for click-baiting, but Google has “disappeared” even obscure skeptics.)

    For some strange reason things seem very quiet in here?

    For some strange reason Arctic melt seems to have speeded up again:
